To start with, the restaurant is beautiful inside and out, and the inside ambiance is fantastic.
The staff is all knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient.
The food and the drinks are outstanding, and very fairly priced for the quality.
Please note this: Everyone must try the quail appetizer. One of the best things I have ever had.
Special thanks to our outstanding waiter, Robert!

Truthfully, we were 100% disappointed. Rob, our server, was MIA half the night. Didn’t seem like he cared about our table much. From start to end, just an overall
Lack of hospitality. One of our guests had a filet that was “stringy” and was sent back but never replaced. Server never apologized. Finally the manager stopped by and apologized but at that point, nearly 20 minutes had passed. In the end, they comped a dessert. Totally fine if you are chili’s, but not for a restaurant of this caliber.

Won’t be back

Food was excellent with the exception of one appetizer. We ordered the Hamachi Crudo which was $28. 5 slices of sashimi swimming in plumb ponzu sauce and little dollops of black bean mousse. Way too much sauce and the black bean mousse had no business on the plate from a flavor perspective. Entrees ordered by our group included Chilean sea bass, New York strip and braised beef short rib which were all superb. Also tried the PBJ & Milk Chocolate Bar and the Milky Way desserts. Both great.

Service was slower than normal and food took a while to come out. We were there for about 2 1/2 hours for party of 4 and the restaurant wasn’t busy. Probably a side effect of understaffing due to COVID which I can understand. Overall great experience and highly recommended. Not our first time here and certainly won’t be our last.

Amazing. Love The Ranch. We make this a must-stop every time we are in the area. Cocktails are delicious, food is amazing and the overall vibe is perfection. I have a weakness for the prime rib here and the pb&j dessert.

Extraordinary quality, preparation, and service. We have been to the Ranch many times and they never fail to amaze. Every dish has a signature preparation twist that makes it uniquely their own. Example: the onion soup, made with 5 distinct types of onions they grow on their own farm. It will absolutely ruin you for onion soup anywhere else.

We came to The Ranch to celebrate my 24th birthday. We had a reservation and were seated very quickly. Our waiter was very friendly and was very prompt to provide us with whatever we needed! The ambiance of the restaurant was relaxing and romantic.
For drinks, we started off with the Now You See Me. It was very tasty and refreshing. We ordered the wagyu beef carpaccio, five onion soup and caesar salad to start. The carpaccio was so tender and fresh! The arugula and truffles were the perfect compliment to the yummy, soft beef. The soup was absolutely delicious and rich in flavor! The salad was a perfect balance to cut the richness of the soup. For our entrees we ordered the cowboy ribeye and the braised short rib with a side of the lobster mac and cheese. WOW WOW WOW!!! Everything was so delicious and cooked perfectly! We were so full, but our waiter was kind enough to offer us a dessert to take home for my birthday!
It was a wonderful experience and I would definitely visit The Ranch again!

We like sitting at the bar. We usually come in when Christina is working. Excellent and friendly bartender. There is also a new manager. Although she has been with the company for awhile she is new to the front of the restaurant and is a great addition.
