Great service. Food inconsistent. Great Artichoke, bad Caesar salad. Good Prime Rib and potatoes, cold, stale tasting popovers. Great Creme Brûlée’s (which was on the house as it was our Anniversary)

Service was awsome. Staff was amazing and very attentive. Never did they let out glasses go empty. They let us enjoy being together and not feel intrusive or over bearing.

The food was amazing. It was my first time at the restaurant and I was satisfied with the food. The cowboy rib eye is bomb! The ceviche trilogy is amazing. Everything I ate that day was really really good. The Milky Way is bomb too and I tried this popcorn ice cream that wasn’t on the menu and it was magical lol

We come to the Ranch for special occasions--birthdays, anniversaries etc. My wife loves the Cowboy Steak and we usually split it. It is the best around. The pop overs are a fun way to start and the tomato water was interesting. We were there for my wife's birthday and she was very pleased. We, of course, will be back!

Such a wonderful dinner. The restaurant itself is so pretty inside, then my husband and I shared the Delmonico steak (large enough for two people), which is our favorite steak there - buttery soft and flavorful. We also had the popovers and grilled artichoke appetizers- which were fantastic. My favorite drink is the Orange County Mint Julep - strong but sweet. They brought out a special birthday dessert for my husband as well, which was so thoughtful. One of our favorite places for a special dinner.

Excellent porterhouse steak! Both our server and his assistant were diligent in making sure we had everything we needed. We were celebrating a birthday and the restaurant gave us a complimentary dessert.

For a routine Business meal or your milestone Anniversary, you can never go wrong when choosing The Ranch. I went outside my norm and tried the Prime Rib this time and it was superb.

The wife and I come to dine here for celebratory dinners all the time! Every plate we've had there feels like it's been prepped for us and like a new burst of flavors thanks to the chef. Remember, You don't just win awards in Orange county by luck from the moment you open your doors for business.

My wife and I went to The Ranch Restaurant for an anniversary celebration. There was nothing bad about the restaurant but you can find many places that are better. The atmosphere was dark and loud and made conversation challenging. The food was good but not worth the $200 (plus tip) that the meal cost. Service was prompt and courteous but nothing super special. The Ranch's distinguishing characteristic is the much of the food is grown locally on their nearby 2 acre farm plot.

My wife had the heirloom tomato salad, petite filet, and the zucchini dish. The salad was nice but not as flavorful as you would get from home-grown heirloom tomatoes. The filet was quite good and worth the $50 price. The zucchini dish was probably the best item we ordered with great freshness and flavor.

I also had the heirloom tomato salad, the short ribs, and creamed spinach. The short ribs were fine but nothing to write about. The creamed spinach was creamy but lacked flavor.

For dessert we shared the sticky toffee pudding with jack Daniel's ice cream. The dessert was ok but the size was tiny - enough for each of us to have about five bites. Coffee was nothing special.

Still good but I think the basil sauce for Escargo used be richer.
The complimentary flower bun used to be less dry.

It was my first time eating at The Ranch. I gave “ambiance” 3 stars only because there was a family with little children, one being under a year old and it cried almost the entire time unless someone was holding it. I feel bad saying this but when I go to a 5 star restaurant with nice food I expect to not listen to crying children.
