Food and ambiance were nice, and intimate, however our waiter was MIA almost the entire time, to the point that we had to stop other associates for assistance with either water or our check. The nice associate that stopped apologized on our waiters behalf, and mentioned he had an emergency, but shortly after that he reappeared to pick up the check… super weird, but hope all is okay.

We came to The Ranch for my husband's 54th Birthday! The customer service, ambiance, service, food and the Team did not disappoint. In fact, we were very impressed with the knowledge of our server/host was very knowledgeable about the menu and the details of the ingredients and menu options to include the special menu. The Ranch was an amazing experience and the steaks are 3 inches thick, super tasty, cooked just right and just melts in your mouth.
Thank you to The Ranch for an awesome dining experience! We will definitely be back and will recommend to family and friends!

I had the special, the prawns, and my date had the Carpaccio to start, with an inordinate amount of different wines. The short rib entrée and the sea bass entrée, along with the creamed spinach were heavenly, and I smiled throughout dinner. The lobster mac and cheese is from a box don't get it. Sorbet and creme brulèe for dessert were excellent. Service was a 4 out of 5. The birthday party next to us was hilarious and loud asf. Would come back for sure.

Amazing Experience! Great Ambiance. Dress code is business casual to smart casual for the restaurant. This is a country themed restaurant so if you feel like wearing cowboy boots and hat, then it’s definitely welcomed. They even have a Saloon apart from the restaurant, if you feel like line dancing. Noise level moderate, so if you are looking for an up-beat lively restaurant, this is it. Dim lighting perfect for a romantic dinner for 2 or perfect for large parties as well. Service was excellent with very attentive staff, our waiter was awesome!! The food is outstanding!!! The carpaccio was fresh and light. The mashed potatoes and cream corn delicious. The maplewood chicken with focaccia, petite steak with risotto and créeme brûlée was phenomenal!!!

I have been a fan of The Ranch since it opened. It is the most elegant fine dining establishment in north OC. However, post COVID, I have been 3 times and it has gotten progressively worse. Service was terse and condescending. We were not permitted to order appetizers without placing our entire dinner order.

Our plan was to have a leisurely and luxurious dining experience. The requirement to have each person order every course up front was off putting to say the least. Minor modifications were made to the entrees and incurred an up charge for every item, even bernaise sauce for a $49 filet which is the tiniest filet I have ever seen. It is listed as 6 oz. it is not a gram over 4 oz making this particular beef $200 per lb. Nonetheless, the food was delicious. It’s just disappointing to have poor service, be forced to order in bulk and be nickel & dimed at a restaurant where you’re paying $100 per person before any cocktails or wine.

Really great experience at The Ranch! This was our first visit, and we were very pleased with the excellent quality of service and food. The grilled artichoke starter was superb, and so was the wagyu carpaccio. We had the prime rib and the flavor and cut were top notch. All in all, a very pleasant meal that we would definitely have again!

My wife and I had the pleasure of celebrating our anniversary here last night, and it was a wonderful experience! Rob was our server. He and the other auxiliary personnel were really attentive and courteous. My water glass never half empty, and I tend to drink a lot of water with my meal!

We started off with the globe artichoke, which wasn’t my preference, but marriage is about compromise, right? The flavors (especially of the two accompanying dipping sauces) were all amazing, I just think that a fibrous, most-inedible vegetable is inherently a bad vehicle for them. I guess I’m just not an artichoke person.

Next was the beet salad. Perfectly balanced in every single way. Flavor, texture, color. Cheese, nuts, citrus supremes... That was the best salad I’ve ever had in my life! It was an edible work of art on a plate.

For the main course, we ordered the 50 oz Porterhouse medium, accompanied by lobster mac & cheese and green bean & mushroom casserole. The porterhouse came with bordelaise & bearnaise sauces, but neither were necessary. We prefer to let the natural flavor of the steak stand on its own. That said, the lobster mac was TO DIE FOR. The green bean casserole was a tad al dente & loosely assembled, but the flavors were excellent!

For dessert, we had the deconstructed Milky Way with salted caramel ice cream, which was a perfect way to end the meal.

All in all, we could not imagine a better dining experience, and we look forward to returning to The Ranch to celebrate more special occasions!

After great recommendations I brought my girlfriend to the Ranch for her birthday and it was everything that it was hyped up to be. The service team paid attention to the reservation request and greeted us with a happy birthday when we walked in. Now the food....AMAZING. The scallops were perfect as well as the 40oz delmonico we ordered. Definitely will be back

My wife and I had a great evening with drinks before dinner in the bar and a wonderful meal with terrific wines. The waiter honored my earlier call to provide a good luck message at the dessert course. He came through and his message topped off the evening.

Was not the best. For a high quality restaurant I expected much better. I shouldn’t have to ask for another round of drinks. Server was overwhelmed and had too many tables. I had to ask the bus person to order more drinks.

The main entrees took longer than they should have. Shouldn’t have to wait 10 to 15 minutes between courses.

Did advise the manager and he took a few drinks off the bill but for a restaurant like this I would rather have had a much better experience.
