Better than Morton's and that says a lot. Unique, one of a kind, and the best service I have ever gotten.

The Ranch Restaurant experience is amazing from start to finish. There was no shortage of helpful friendly staff offering assistance from the minute you walk in the door. This is not your typical "fine dining", the portions are healthy and you will not walk away hungry. We ordered NY Strip, Lamb Chops, and Prime Rib. Both the NY and the Prime were huge and well worth the money - cooked perfect. I ordered the Lamb Chops which typically are smaller portion but that allow me to order the Prawn appetizer which was incredible. Two large prawns, three mussels on a bed of squid ink risotto - wow! The waiter made us save room for dessert. You can not leave the Ranch without one of their amazing desserts. We had the PBJ, the award winning Milky Way and the popcorn ice cream. Yes you heard me right - you've got try to the popcorn ice cream. Great ambiance, great staff, amazing Chef. This is a can't miss dinner experience.

Brought a coworker here for her bday. We’re in town for a conference. I’d had the pleasure of dining at The Ranch once before and it did not disappoint this time. Great service, delicious food and great ambience, although they could turn up the lights a tad!

We had 4 in our party and we were seated promptly for our 6pm reservation. The server was attentive and knew the menu well and answered our questions. We have been here before but our friends were first timers and they enjoyed the evening. We loved the relaxed, no rush atmosphere, Our table had lamb chops, petit filets and NY strip. Everything was prepared well along with appetizers and sides. I especially liked the onion soup which I have every time I dine here. Our friends also enjoyed their cobb salad and beet salad.

Wonderful restaurant. Came here on Saturday night for Fathers Day dinner. Rob was our waiter. He was great, friendly, very informative. We started with truffle gnocchi which was wonderful. The truffle didn’t overpower the gnocchi. My son had a cheeseburger and my wife and I had the Delmonico steak. Really, the best steak I’ve ever had! We had a twice baked potato and creamed corn. They were great! My only complaint was is the portion was a little small. I could’ve eaten the whole thing myself!

Great restaurant, wish I lived closer so I could come more often.

This was mine and wife's 2nd anniversary spent here. They treated us very well. The babysitter cancelled last minute. We brought our son and he was accommodated as well. Said it was the best Grilled Cheese sandwich he's ever had. I'll be back. This place is great.

We absolutely LOVE the Ranch. We travel from Honolulu and visit 3-4 times a year for date night. We love the food and the service. If you haven’t tried this place, you should. It is worth the $$$$. Our faves: escargot, ceviche, lamb, cowboy ribeye, and sea bass. For dessert: Milky Way and pecan pie. 😍 can’t wait to come back in a few months!

The food is amazing. I got the beet salad and it was SO delicious. I got the Sea Bass with the crab risotto and I was so happy I did. My husband got the cowboy rib eye and wow, it was amazing. his sides weren't the most delicious sides I'd ever tried in my life, but they were good and I would absolutely recommend this place to friends. We do. All the time. Also, there's a saloon next door, so sometimes, the crowd from there spills over to the restaurant, and they're a little rowdy, but all in all, I love this place.

Lot of hype about this place; may be part of the problem since businesses, especially restaurants, rarely meet expectations. We counted on an upscale dining experience; I asked for a quiet table which I immediately saw was impossible; one large room that includes the kitchen; too loud. Wait staff well meaning but a little too attentive; kept interrupting our yelling across the table to each other.
Food was very good but over priced. Great wine selection but we brought our own because the markup is excessive.
Overall, I would like to recommend for special occasions but it just wasn't special for us.

Unfortunately I will have to rate the ranch restaurant very low. I went here for my seven year anniversary with high expectations and left feeling almost completely unsatisfied and $350 broker. Service was very slow and the food is not remarkable. My $135 steak was supposed to be dry aged, maybe it was but I sure could not taste the difference and I haven’t eaten many dry age steaks. Oddly enough it was served with A1 steak sauce poured onto the plate and about eight potato wedges that I would find in a supermarket deli. As for my sides, the creamed spinach could have been out of a can and the lobster mac & cheese had nothing more than a faint lobster flavor. They did make a wonderful Manhattan

My husband & I received a gift certificate to this restaurant and were very impressed. The ambiance was awesome, the service was exceptional and the food was fantastic.

From the minute we walked in, the receptionist greeted us very kindly. The Manager walked us to the bar area. Once we got seated, our waiter (Mario), explained very thoroughly the menu choices. He was extremely helpful & patient with us. We could not decide what we wanted. Everything sounded so good.

I definitely recommend this restaurant for special occasions. It is a little pricey for us, but all worth it.
I thought my husband cooked the best Filet Mignon, until I had this one.

Great quality, well prepared steaks in an upscale, energetic (i.e. loud) setting. I liked that the actual tables were large, giving each party more than ample room to spread out and get comfortable. Some custs were dressed up, while others were classy-casual. Had a great wedge salad and a solid NY strip, along with a special (great!) bacon old fashioned cocktail. Each was easily an 8 out of 10. Would recommend!

Great restaurant just a little difficult to find the first time you’re there. I’m taking the entire family there for a birthday celebration. They have a kids menu which will help keep the cost down. The quail appetizer was awesome as well as the French onion soup. The petite filet was cooked to perfection. Can’t wait to go back.
