What a lovely anniversary dinner. The host acknowledged, the entire staff signed a card with a lovely poem. The service staff acknowledged and provided a free dessert. We enjoyed a leisurely dinner, with prime rib and the john dory. Loved the corn side that came with the prime rib as well. One of our favorite places to go for a special dinner. The very good piano provided great background music.

As always Summit House delivered a great experience for our family. We love sitting in the main dining room booths and especially love the Christmas decor. We celebrated my husband’s birthday and especially love the birthday card from the staff. They definitely make any occasion special. Our server was very sweet and was excellent. We ordered a cheese and meat board, salmon, Brussels sprouts and prime rib. Our entrees were fantastic and the kiddos helped clear the meat and cheese board too! The kids loved their sliders and chicken tender’s. My 11 yr old especially loves their truffle fries!
I can’t say enough great things about Summit House and the staff!

Had Christmas Eve dinner with my family and we had a wonderful time . From the moment we walked in we were warmly greeted. Despite this being a very busy day for dining , our experience was top notch ! Attentive waitstaff, Christmas Carolers, tasty cocktails ( The Lavender Lemon Drop & Old Fashion)
The Salads were fresh , Filet mignon was cooked to perfection the Au Gratin potatoes and Creamed corn were perfectly delicious!
Thank you Summit House for an amazing dinner .
We can’t wait to come back !

The Summit House is a beautiful venue. Our party of six was seated in the Main Dining room which was beautiful. It did take some time to have our order taken, water to arrive, etc. but that was to be expected given the number of people there.

When we received our meals, two of the filet mignon were not cooked to order…very rare instead of the medium rare as ordered. The 2 prime rib dinners must have been switched between two of our parties and was too late for them to exchange plates. This should not happen at this restaurant and for the price they charge. We all were disappointed. I’m not sure we’ll be back anytime soon.

This was our second time visiting Summit house, the first was for our one year wedding anniversary. This time we went for Christmas Eve. It’s such a beautiful restaurant! Our group was 4 adults and my daughter. The Christmas carolers were a nice touch. The food was delicious as always. We think we will make this a annual tradition.

Food was definitely amazing, n the complimentary birthday cake was so yummy, they even got me a cute Christmas card. Definitely would come back again.

David, our server, was very attentive and patient with our party. We enjoyed the Carolers! The Pasa Robles Cabernet paired excellently with our prime rib.
Really glad we had a corner table with a view of the lights, even the Disney fireworks.
