Hanna's Restaurant & Bar Restaurant Review

: Rancho Santa Margarita restaurateur David Hanna opened this lunch and dinner spot to meet the area’s need for more fine dining establishments. Located in the heart of RSM across from City Hall, Hanna’s attracts local power players, as well as denizens who come here for dinner and a martini or craft cocktail after a long commute. Hanna and executive chef Sean Reynolds have created a menu that is rooted in classic steakhouse motifs, but allows enough wiggle room for international flair. These touches are especially prevalent in the first course, where guests can indulge in items like hummus mousse-stuffed deviled eggs or grilled avocado toast with yuzu marinade. Entrées are all a little more traditional, with seafood, chops and a selection of ten different cuts of steak, a trio of Wagyu options among them. The venue's popular cheeseburger is an essential lunchtime choice for South OC business types. Rounding out the dining experience are a small seasonal dessert menu and a surprisingly sizeable wine list, which includes "Dave's Private Selection," a collection of cult reds culled from The Golden State.
