There's a reason why this is the go-to for romantic events and special occasions. The atmosphere is gorgeous, and the food is spectacular. Dinner isn't cheap, but well worth every penny.

Sensing a theme? The Prime Rib is excellent served in a English tutor manor type feel. Very homey, this place is pricey, but enjoy the views, relax and dig in.

My husband and I ate Thanksgiving dinner at the Summit House. The restaurant was nicely decorated for the holidays and we fortunate to get a comfortable booth for our meal. I thought the traditional turkey dinner was quite good including a salad main course and desert and my husband enjoyed his prime rib. The only downside was there was a... More

The Prime rib is second to none. The service impeccable. The view spectacular. Salad was crisp and the blue cheese was to die for. Happy hour is a good bargain in the bar and patio area. Sliders are good. They pour a nice cocktail

My daughter and I visited. We shared all our food. The salad was not well split. Wonderful plate of cold cuts and cheese. The roast beef, well, not to our liking. Nice dessert. Fantastic site, nice setting. Overall, not worth 150 dollars.

But still Sunday night. We were seated in a nice booth against the wall. Pros: friendly staff responsive to table needs like more sourdough bread and water with out being asked. No rushing to finish quickly Cons: prime rib served raw food stead of medium. Staff quickly corrected the problem when it was pointed out Worst escargot ever. No flavor... More

A special night out was everything but special. In an effort to accommodate as many guests as possible, the dining room was so crowded it was uncomfortable. There was less than 2 to 3 inches between our chairs and the table next to us - on two sides. That is not acceptable. Two of us had fish - halibut and... More

When we arrived at 6:20PM the place was jumping. Thanks goodness for valet parking. The we very early for our 7o'clock reservation. We asked again for a window table since it was our 50th. The other couple had not arrived. We got our window table before 7PM & it had a great view of the lights below. The only thing... More
