Orange Hill Restaurant
Perched on the hills of Orange, awaits a beautiful restaurant called Orange Hill to give you an enchanting time of romance, great food and offering magical views from Orange County to Catalina Island. Their patio offers a view that will be etched forever in your memory. Set in this amazing background is the chef's creative menu with Asian, Continental and other fusion strokes such as the fresh ahi tower, hot Thai shrimp, drunken mahi mahi, Chateaubriand which is flambeed table side and prepared in a dramatic way, portobello crusted Atlantic salmon with mashed potatoes, braised spinach and a mushroom vinaigrette emulsion, Filet Mignon, prime rib and New York sirloin. Weekend brunch features free flowing wine and a wide array of omelets, waffles, seafood and items from a large dessert bar. Their 'O Bar' lounge is great for cocktail dinners offering a cozy ambiance with hand blown glass chandeliers, fireplace, a customized orange piano and handmade pillows with live entertainment.
Romantic and special. First class place, second class food. A little pretentious. A bit overpriced. I think they are too impressed with themselves. Excellent for special events because of the ambiance and the stunning view. We have been going there for years, each time hoping the fare will be better. Impressive place to bring visitors. Sometimes we eat elsewhere and go to Orange Hill for cocktails on the patio. Try to go at sunset. It's like you're in the cockpit of a 747, looking down on the entire county from Catalina to La Habra.
The best thing on the menu is the lobster special (about $50) which is so huge we split it, and it's still generous. Plan on about $100 for dinner for two with dessert and a couple drinks. Sunday brunch is excellent.
