The food is pricey but good. This place has a great salad bar. We love the view at night of OC. Great place for a dinner date, very quiet and relaxing.

We were there for a buffet dinner/birthday party. The food was delicious and the view of the city lights from the dining room was fantastic.

Very casual, food is okay, kind of dingy inside, I must say, they have an awesome salad bar! We go there about once a year.

The meal was great. The salad bar was a little interesting. It was a bit noisy for a Sunday evening, but the view was great. We had a colleague in a wheel chair and they were able to accommodate.

One of our party had just had knee surgery and this place is not equipped for people who might have problems with stairs. The multiple levels require the use of stairs and this started the evening out on a... More

Made reservations for 6 people at 630pm on a Thursday night - took 35-40 minutes to get seated only after some serious comments by our party - Why? In a 30% full restaurant. food was expensive and honestly not that good - Chicken BBQ was bland and very salty.

I went to this restaurant last night for a birthday celebration for my daughter-in-law. The on-line photos show a fantastic view of torange county from the top of the hill. The restaurant is laid out in a design where you cannot see the view from 80% of the restaurant. Very disappointing. The only thing more disappointing was the food. Holy... More

Being an OC native, I have been coming here for decades. We live nearby, and enjoy having a light dinner on the patio during happy hour. Getting a finicky 6 year old to eat can be a challenge, but the soup and salad bar is a real savior - and also helps me eat lighter. Beyond the salad bar though... More
