This place was overall excellent. The food exceeded my expectations and the cowboy ribeye was delicious. The only thing I disliked was that there were too big parties in the same room, so the noise level was a little loud.

Amazing cowboy ribeye, sides of white cheddar potatoes and green bean and mushroom casserole were also great. Excited about sticky toffee pudding but very disappointed, would not order that again. Service was attentive and nice! Virgin mojito was on point.

THe food was impeccable, the best prime rib I have ever had, and the service was flawless. Upon noticing that it was my wife’s birthday and she was having a hard time deciding between two desserts the waiter, Wally, brought both-one at no charge.
This was literally one of, if not THE, best meals of my life. Can’t wait to return.

We really enjoy this restaurant for its ambiance and vibe. The food is excellent although pricey so we make this an occasional restaurant maybe 2-3 times per year... service was good although was somewhat difficult to get servers attention as seemed to be covering a number of tables... very clean restrooms

We were blown away with this Restaurant and this will be #1 on our list everytime we are back in the Anaheim area. Brenton was our server how has worked here many years and I can tell you that he is passionate about where he is, as his suggestions and knowledge of the menu, ingredients and preparation were very helpful and impressive. I would like to have a team of Brenton's working for me in sales! Let's get to the food, or perhaps I have already given that away?? Everything that we had tried was orgasmic.. for once I was eating the way people should, savoring every bite slowly. This restaurant may not be located in the high traffic area, but this is an absolute must dine anytime your are in Southern California... just get here..
I can't wait to come back here again, as this is now my #1 favorite everywhere, even after traveling the globe!

Was celebrating a special birthday. Ordered an o'dourve that the waiter suggested, both of us didn't care for it, so we just set it aside. We didn't plan on saying a word, they restaurant took it off our bill as they realized we didn't care for it. Was quite impressed that they acknowledged the fact we set it aside. Great wine, great meal, great service, overall it all made the evening quite special.

We had a 5:30 reservation and we were seated right as we walked in the door. The staff was very attentive, polite, and fun. The food was delivered to the table promptly and the managers paid a visit to our table to say hello and ensure everything was going well. We would definitely come back and order the 58oz ribeye dinner. Amazing and cooked to perfection.

Really enjoyed our first visit to The Ranch! Came for my birthday after a day at Disneyland and I’m already looking forward to finding a reason to get out of San Diego for the day and going back to the restaurant! So good and worth the money!

Service was excellent food was a solid 4 out of 5. Appreciated that they offer a kids menu. Casual fancy is the way I would describe the restaurant. They are a little pricey so be prepared to spend a pretty penny. Over all good belated birthday dinner but I don't think I'll be back here since we do live out of town and there are so many dining options but if I was asked about the Ranch I would recommend them.

I visited the Ranch for the first time with my fiancé celebrating our anniversary, a friend had recently dined there and shown me pictures from her dinner. It turned out even better than I could imagine the mood was perfect and the food was amazing. We went on a Thursday and was informed by our waiter DEREK that we would be able to stop by next door for line dance course and club. The staff and food were worth the 5 star rating!!!! And the saloon next door was tons of fun definitely worth the trip and we will definitely visit this place more often now that we found this gem.

The service was wonderful, our waitress was amazing and so so nice. That being said, I really don’t feel like the food lived up to the hype. I’d choose ruths chris over this everyday and I feel like it’s priced better. The starter bread was stale, we got the popovers with the jam for an appetizer and thought they were just ok. We also got a blt wedge salad that in my opinion had way too much blue cheese. That was literally all I could taste. My husband got the filet which was cooked perfectly and super yummy. I got a smoked maple chicken Dish and thought it was just ok. Overall it was still a good meal, but I’m not sure I’d go back like I mentioned I’d choose ruths chris.

We usually enjoy our meal here very much. Started with a delicious foie gras. They did a very good job with the prep on this. Next course was a pasta dish with shaved truffles tableside. Pretty good. We ordered the prime rib with augratin potatoes for our main course. We were brought instead the prime New York. Meat was very tender and tasty but did not like the prep with blue cheese, mushrooms and sweet potatoes. Questioned our server about this being the dish we ordered. He realized he put in the wrong steak. Very disappointing when you prepare for a certain taste. He comped us a free glass of wine. It was something at least.

Our first dining experience here was for NYE 2018, & was a pre-fixe menu. Food was okay, but somewhat was somewhat disappointing in taste. Then again maybe we just weren’t big fans of what they were offering course option wise. We do plan to try out this place again when we can pick from the entire menu.
