Orange >Orange Hill Restaurant
Server Lied. My husband and I had dinner Saturday night because our next door neighbor had raved about her experience. I wish I could rave about our experience but I am sorry to say I cannot. We had asked our waitress for the specials because our neighbor had mention you could get an excellent dinner for under twenty dollars, the waitress told us that they had no specials. Later that night when I visited their website I found that they offer the "Sunset Dinner" for 19.95. I felt so deceived I don't understand why should would have done this, maybe to earn extra tips? I really don't know. When I tried to contact Orange Hill no one would talk to me, I left messages and no one returned my call. I finally just let it go and we will not be returning. If this happens to you, please ask to speak to the manager right then and there, I wish we did.
I can't say for sure...but just because you saw something later on the website, really doens't mean it was available at that moment/day/or hour. My best guess (especially with the "Sunset Dinners") may be that it's offered very early in the day & you were dining after it ended (which would be the reason your server said "there were no specials".) I think it's pretty harse that you're calling a server a liar, when there may be reasons that there truly weren't "specials".
Great dining experience. I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and we both absolutely loved the views. from the moment we got there, we felt important. it did take them a bit to get us seated even though i had made reservations a week in advance but once we say down, our waitress was great. She made sure we had everything and our cups were never empty not did we ever have any plates on our table for more than a few minutes. The views out of the window were incredible!! The waitress then gave my girlfriend a free slice of cheesecake for her birthday. when we were done eating, we sat on the outside balcony by a fire pit for about 20 mins and had a great time enjoying the city views. The food was a little on the dissapointing side...the cesar salad was a bit lacking, the salmon was a little too dry for my taste and my prime rib was cooked rare instead of medium and my mashed potatoes seemed too bland also. For the price of the food, it definitely wasn't 5 star dining but the entire ambiance and experience of the place made up for it. But then once we went outside, the valet seemed too interested in my girlfriend then getting my car and was very unproffesional in the way he presented himself and the valet service. He kept staring at her as she got in the car and then while i was walking around to the other side kept looking through the door at her...that lost him his tip. there was those few bad things but overall the experience was good. I wouldn't go there again just because i'd like to try other places but i would definitely reccomend it for a special occasion of any sorts
Great food, service, view!. We had relatives in town and wanted to try something new. This restaurant has been around for a long time but I'd never gone. We arrived at 5:45 (reservation was for 6:00) and had drinks in the bar. I asked for a view table but was told there were none available. After drinks we moved to our spectacular corner table with a full view of the city below. (am not sure how that happened!) We were offered the sunset menu ($20 for salad, entree + dessert) and all 5 of us ordered from it. No one was disappointed, in fact every one of us raved about the salmon, prime rib and chicken entrees we were served. I cannot recommend this establishment enough! We all had a wonderful evening.
Very disappointed. We planned to have a happy birthday night but it becomes to a nightmare when we sat for 15 minutes and the waiter never took our order. He attended all table around us but never stop in our. We had to stand up and go to another restaurant. This restaurant is not as good as it seem. I really don't recommend it.
Overpriced and Pretentious. My family and I wanted to have some late-night dessert and enjoy the view. We were told that the dinning room was only for people eating dinner and if we wanted to just have dessert we'd either have to sit at the bar or outside (it was raining). Neither of these horrible options appealed to us and we left. I am still sorely disappointed that the restaurant discriminates against patrons who choose not to eat dinner. If they had allowed us to eat in the dinning room we'd probably be there every weekend. Their dessert is decent - its kind of hard to ruin cakes. But the dinner menu isn't anything special.
The Best. This is one of the best restaurants experience we ever had. The food was of highest quality, service was professional and attentive, great ambiance and wonderful views. We ordered the Kobi Skewers and baked Brie appetizers, Cider Plank Salmon and Fillet Oscar, for dessert we had the Chocolate pyramid and Sorbet, they were all very delicious and well presented, the staff was helpfully and accommodating. We had a great bottle of wine Duck horn Pinot noir. We will be visiting Orange hill Restaurant more often and we will recommend it to all our friends. Thank you for a wonderful experience
Absolutely magnificant. I just got home from CA. I was visiting my daughter in Huntington Beach and she took me here last Saturday night. I have eaten in many places, however this was by far the most spectacular view and perfect staff ever. From the moment we turned up the rode to the moment we sat down, breathtaking. The dinner could not have been better, the desert spectacular. The service phenominal. I would recommend everyone try Orange County. My prime rib was the best I have EVER had. The entire evening could not have been anymore perfect.
Top of the Hill Magic!. Just dined here last night and what a great time! I was extremely impressed with the food as it was very flavorful and beautifully presented. The service was very attentive, knowledgeable and effecient. I was very impressed all the way around we had such a great night before we knew it 3 hours had gone by and we had not even noticed. I highly reccomend this place for dining.
Best dinner and service I have ever had. I have eaten in some of the best restaurants in the world, but this experience I had at Orange Hill was one of the most memorable I have had in a long time. My wife and I recently had dinner reservations on a Monday night. When we decided to eat at Orange Hill we remembered the last time we had dinner there, in the summer of 2000. It was very bad; I remember having ordered the king crab carbonara, which was served very cold, tasted flavorless, and we received it one hour after we had ordered it. I asked for the manager; he came out to our table to see what the problem was and discuss our concerns. While at our table,the manager seemed more interested in my wife than our experience and unhappiness. Anyway, our recent second experience was excellent. I ordered the special that night, a peppered crusted dry aged NY steak with a sour mash whiskey sauce, truffled popcorn, and a stuffed tomato with creamed leeks and chive oil. My wife ordered the swordfish with a reisling vinaigrette and fennel salad. Everybody knows Orange Hill Restaurant's view is great, especially now that the food matches the view.
Keeps Getting Better. Simply said "I LOVE this place!" I have been going here for over 10 years and let me tell you that it keeps getting better and better. I mean come on first of all, how can you do better than that amazing view. We went there last week for dinner with my wife and another couple and from the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were catered to and shown such great service and attention. Now to the food.... We had the most amazing steaks ever! I had their NY with macaroni and cheese (and a leafy green that I cannot remember the name of it; collard greens?...not sure) my wife had their Filet with Pinot Noir sauce and she was very happy our guests had the Lamb and the Filet Oscar and they both said they were amazing dishes. The server was perfect, attentive, courteous and not overberring (hovering... I hate that!). The dishes were beautifully presented as well. We love this restaurant as I already said and we will be coming back many more times! Keep up the good work on the hill!
