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 swank O Bar lounge. The menu is peppered with plenty of classic continental dishes such as the signature Châteaubriand for two, which is theatrically flambéed tableside. Mains feature seafood favorites like grilled Skuna Bay salmon with grilled corn-asparagus ragoût, confit potatoes and chive crème fraîche. Some guests come specifically for the four kinds of beef (filet mignon, prime rib, rib-eye and New York sirloin) 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. A lively brunch buffet happens on Saturdays and Sundays and features free-flowing sparkling wine and guests' choice of omelets, waffles, seafood and more set up on a 20-foot-long dessert bar.
