The food is absolutely amazing without a doubt. My fiancé and I came here for our anniversary and I noted it on our reservation with open table. They wished us a happy anniversary and even wrote it in chocolate on our dessert. Sometimes it’s the small things that make a big difference.

My wife and I drive by this restaurant all the time and have heard nothing but great things. We were celebrating our 8th anniversary and thought that would be a perfect occasion to give The Ranch a try. Boy were we right! From the moment you walk in the door, every ounce of the experience there was superb. Ambiance: amazing classy western touches. Service: beyond comparison. Food: to die for. Can’t wait to come back!

We’ve been to The Ranch about 6-7 times. The food is always excellent. However, the service was subpar this last one we went. 1) It took a very long time to order when the restaurant was not busy. When I noted the long wait to the server, he sarcastically said sorry. 2) Our server didn’t remember our order and had to come back to confirm. 3) We had to ask for refills on my iced tea 3-4 times. When we found out that one of the wait staff brought my iced tea to the wrong table, our server proceeded to grab the misplaced drink (which had been sitting at the other table for quite some time) and bring it to me. Not sure if my drink had been drunk by the other party. Either way, not very sanitary or professional IMO.

From the greeting we received at the door and the bar, to being seated at our table, to our waitress (Megan), my friends were blown away. I’ve eaten here previously and suggested this for our monthly get together. We ordered appetizers (heirloom tomato salad and French opinion soup) and two had prime rib, I had New York strip; as always, this place ROCKS IT ALL. The prime rib and steaks were prepared perfectly. The sides were tasty and enough to share. The Ranch never disappoints.

Really enjoyed my dinner at The Ranch. The interior is well designed, presenting a nice mix of ambiance and comfortable dining. The lighting levels were perfect, as were the various decorations. There was a decent amount of noise inside, loud enough to provide a pleasant hum of activity, but not so loud you couldn't hold a conversation without raising your voice.

The food was excellent. The cerviche appetizer had a great variety of flavors, all of which were presented tastefully. The freshly baked multi-variety bread roll was a lot of fun to eat - the various types of rolls made for an enjoyable bit of dining.

The steak we ordered was spectacular - although, perhaps a little overdone to be medium rare. The dry-aged meat was flavorful, chewy without being tough, and tender without being soft. The sauce was maybe a little too fussy in terms of flavor compared to the steak, but since it was on the side that's not as big of a problem.

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.

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!
