We've dined here numerous times and have enjoyed our experiences but this night we were seated in the dining room overlooking the kitchen and it was very loud. Several large parties that were exceptionally noisy and constantly moving around. This was a distraction, to say the least, and a bit off-putting especially for our friends who were dining here for their first time.
Our server and her team were stellar. The service and her knowledge of the menu was quite impressive.
Our dinner, for the most part, was excellent. The Caesar salad was amazingly good, as were the beet salad, escargots and French onion soup. All were exceptional beginning choices. The pork chops were perfection and the lamb was cooked superbly. The sides and presentation were wonderful. The duck however, was very disappointing. The presentation was beautiful but the meat was tough, dry and very, very chewy. In fact we all tried it and came to the same conclusion. It tasted but wasn't eaten.
Dessert was fabulous and our overall experience was very good. I guess we've just come to expect a little more.

The Ranch is a splurge for sure. But when a dining experience is so well executed as it was for us, it is actually a good value. We were so impressed and well cared for we could not have been more pleased. The staff is excellent. While one can hire great people, the management here must be stellar too. This level of perfection does not happen by mistake it is by design. Everything was more perfect than any other restaurant I have ever experienced. I am recommending it to friends; The Ranch is worth going out of your way for.

Visiting from Northern California. This place is exceptional. A fantastic steak place is always on my list for travel. Brian our waiter was knowledgeable, extremely attentive and a pleasure. Cocktails on point, my blue cheese olive dirty martini was one of the best. Cobb and wedge salads flavourful and fresh. We shared the 40 ounce Porterhouse with lobster Mac and the cauliflower special. Everything delicious and perfectly paired with a great Zinfandel from Amador County recommended by Brian. One of the best steak with experiences I've had. Highly recommended.

Top notch restaurant service and food. My co diner felt his steak was over done last time. This time he felt it was under cooked. He was looking for medium well. However the flavor and texture was very good. The soup and salad was so good and fresh. I could have been satisfied the just the sale and rolls. But that was before I tasted the halibut. It was amazing. I’d love to learn how to make it as perfectly cooked. It was fantastic. Moist flavorful and flaky inside crispy perfection on the outside. Loved it!

One of the best steak restaurants I have been to. The chicken fried quail appetizer was superb. The porterhouse was amazing. The lamb chops were some of the best that I have eaten. I look forward to returning to Anaheim so I may eat at the ranch restaurant.

Service was simply outstanding. 36 oz. Rib-Eye was tasty, but too fatty. Price is high if factoring in the bone and the fat. Will probably stick with the petit filet in the future. The ambience was really fun--wish the saloon would have been more lively the night we were there. Cocktails/wine and desserts were terrific!

We always love The Ranch. Sat night, Mar 30th seemed to be a bit off. It took almost 20 min after seating to get a drink. Normally we're asked right away what we would like but not on this night. By the time the waiter came over we were irritated from waiting. We almost went to the bar ourselves. Anyway, finally got our drinks, then ordered our meal. Food was very good. I wish the service had been better, especially because it's The Ranch.

We’ve loved The Ranch each time we’ve dined there, but this was an exceptionally nice experience. The food, as always, was exquisite, from the off-menu Delmonico to the Milky Way dessert. Our service always has been at an elite level at The Ranch, but this time managed to surpass the others. Every need not only was met but was anticipated, and the staff went above and beyond throughout the evening. We will return soon and continue to sing The Ranch’s praises.

This was our first visit to The Ranch after being told by many friends it was a "must dine" option. We couldn't agree more. Everything from the welcome, to the service, to the delicious craft/seasonal cocktails, to the warm service and delicious food far exceeded our expectations! We can't wait to return to try the other options on the farm-to-table menu! Although, the petite filet was just PERFECT so maybe not!

We had a wonderful time, however, the entrees are over-priced. I used to order the
three way duck & was disappointed that it's not on the menu anymore. Our Server was
average - he was racing through the specials as though someone was timing him to say
it as fast as he could. When you spend this much money on dinner, you want to feel
that each special is actually special. He talked SO FAST that my brain couldn't catch up
with what he was telling us. Again, when you spend this much money on dinner, you
want to relax, and take a deep breath - your Server should do the same....slow down !!

The Ranch is a great place for an amazing meal. The experience is top notch from the time you walk in the door until you leave. Great service and knowledgeable waitstaff that can advise you on flavor profiles and matching wines, etc. Chef usually has several off-menu choices to keep the experience fresh for returning guests. Don't waste your time at places like Mortons or McCormick and Schmicks. This is the place to go for steaks in Northern Orange County.

What a beautiful restaurant. We have been so eager to dine at the restaurant. Food was very good. We felt that the steaks were a little disappointing. For the reputation, anticipation and price, it was a little disappointing. We seem to enjoy simpler steaks and sauces more at our favorite restaurants. The side dishes seemed a little too rich. The base vegetables were so tasty that they didn't need such rich sauces. The corn, the potatoes were so very tasty. I have to say, the quail we started with was AMAZINGLY! Service was great!
