Summit House has maintained the same level of quality and service over the last decade or so although not as good as 20 years ago. Dress code has relaxed to allow customers to wear athletic shorts and t-shirts in the evening which brings the level down a bit. Diners could look into several other options in Orange County at this price point. However, it remains a good option for local diners a couple times a year.

Beautiful restaurant in a beautiful setting. Specialty of the house is Prime Rib and it lived up to the billing. My dinner companion very much enjoyed her cocktails, which she said were excellent. Sampler appetizer and sampler dessert gave us a nice taste of numerous items on the menu. Service was excellent from beginning to end. We particularly enjoyed the opportunity to have a nice, relaxing, unhurried meal. Wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant, especially for special occasions.

Summit House Is always a treat. The menu is a little limited, and they have the same dishes year after year. But, you cant beat the prime rib. That's what you go here for. Creamed corn and creamed spinich and Yorkshire pudding with perfect prime rib.

Our server was spot on, freindly and very attentive. We hadn't had wine in a while and she let us sample a couple before we purchased our glasses.

The outdoor patio is a huge hit although we ate in the main dining room.

Celebrating my sons birthday. Our server Jen (Jennifer) was so friendly and kind. She made excellent menu/meal and drink suggestions.
There was a card at our table for my son and many of the employees signed his birthday card.

So nice to sit out on the patio for a wonderful occasion and meal.

So happy The Summit House is up and running again.

We took my mom here for her 89th birthday and it was a wonderful celebration. Our server, Noah, made her feel so special. The service was attentive without being overbearing. He was professional and funny all at the same time.

The food was delicious and perfectly prepared and the cocktails were on point. I had the Summit house salad (light and perfectly dressed) and the John Dory (which was out of this world).

We will definitely be back again soon.

Our shrimp cocktail appetizer was hard, maybe overcooked. The salmon was ok but the rice was not ok. Our server Jordan was very good.

41st Anniversary was a wonderful experience as usual, once seated we realized we should have asked for a seat closer to the patio wall for a better view but this did not detract from our wonderful time.

Prime ribs were excellent. The corn is a bit too sweet. Cream Spanish was just right, not too over powering , complemented well with the prime ribs.

It is always the place we go for birthdays, anniversaries, etc. We are never disappointed and it is our first choice for memory making. My 89 yr. old mother feels special every time she walks through the doors.

Thank you so very much for a wonderful time. The food and ambience are wonderful, but your service personnel are always top notch. Congratulations for finding such a phenomenal group of people.

Maybe the best views and dinner in the area. The menu isn’t long, but we had the prime rib and John Dory and both were outstanding. Nice piano music, and panoramic views from most of the dining room. Service was equally great. We’ve been to Summit House twice now, and will be back. Somewhat expensive but the experience and quality are worth it.
