Always an amazing and impeccable meal at Summit House! The black bass main course was well thought out and well balanced. The coriander duck ham is one of my favorite menu items. The carrot cake dessert is delicious. Always great food and drinks! My favorite place in the area!

The atmosphere is beautiful. We waited nearly an hour for our main course. The server was very nice, and even offered to buy us a glass of wine. The food was not prepared properly. The vegetables were undercooked. And when the check came, the wine was on the bill! We did not say anything about any of it, because we did not want to add more stress to a not so nice dinner. We dine in downtown Summit nearly every evening. Sadly I do not think I will get my husband back there for a long time.

I went for lunch with my mom on a Saturday. The vibe was perfect-laid back but refined, and lively but not too loud. The food and wine were excellent-we each had a salad and shared French fries, which were out of this world!! Highly recommend.

second time there, the food is very good. We were seated in the middle area, which is in my opinion the least desirable seating. The service was not good at all, very long time to have the server arrive and she wanted us to order food right away rather than drinks. The drinks took a very long time to arrive...she said she was "watching the bar" for them, again pressing us to order the meal.
The mediocre service theme continued but the food was very good so overall I would recommend the restaurant.

Excellent service and I mentioned that I like soup to be hot, and my soup came hot which is very rare even when I ask for it.

We all had a bowel of the soup and each of us loved it. The polenta was smooth and tasty. I will return and my friends agreed it was a great choice.

Overall, our experience was good but the main courses were delayed and when they arrived, my vegetarian plate was lacking. The waiter helped the situation by getting a grain added but it seemed that the restaurant forgot our food and then when they remembered, they rushed to pick a vegetarian plate together that came out like a salad.

Excellent food and service, but tables are close together in the front room and it was a noisy atmosphere for lunch conversation. We didn’t have cocktails, so “value” rating was based on food only. The carrot and ginger soup and the roast beef sandwich on sourdough bread were delicious!

It was busy. That was aggravated by the system of separate waiter & servers and led to non-delivered appetizers and a long wait for the check. The waiter tried his best to compensate... and we may still return at some point, but the impression wasn’t great.

This restaurant never disappoints! The cocktails are always inventive and great. The Vesper is my favorite. The Coriander duck ham, goat cheese and salmon tartare starter were all fresh and delicious. Every entree we ordered was better than the other. They are always fresh and the mix of ingredients never fail. The dessert(carrot cake) was a perfect ending. Thanks again for another amazing meal!
