Orange Hill Restaurant Restaurant Review

: In the mood for a little American romance? Orange Hill, as its name suggests, sits above Orange County, offering a one-of-a-kind view, especially during and after sunset --- longtime servers say there’s one marriage proposal here almost every night. Indeed, the panoramic cityscape enhances the venue’s elegant dining space, and it provides a fine backdrop for the sleek O Bar lounge. Executive chef Eric Mickle, who was formerly with restaurant groups governed by Gordon Ramsay and Michael Mina, oversees a menu that's peppered with plenty of classic continental dishes like the signature Châteaubriand for two, which is theatrically flambéed tableside. Mickle augments the traditional fare with a wealth of contemporary options bearing progressive touches, from the blackberry-chipotle BBQ duck tacos to skirt steak with braised cipollini onions. Mains feature seafood like miso-marinated Chilean sea bass with black Thai rice and Chinese broccoli. Some guests come specifically for various cuts of beef such as filet mignon, prime rib or rib-eye or the surf ‘n’ turf combos. An always-on-hand sommelier can help you select from upwards of 300 labels on the wine list, which includes well-known California names as well as obscure boutique bottles and notable French selections. Two types of brunch are available on weekends: an à la carte menu on Saturday and a massive buffet on Sunday.
