Orange Hill Restaurant. Prime Steaks, Primo Views and an Unparalleled Weekend Brunch

Sep 27, 2022

The last time I visited Orange Hill Restaurant was pre-pandemic for a friend’s bon voyage party. Though I am certain that the menu has changed here and there since that time, the quality of its culinary offerings, absolutely breathtaking views and stellar service have not changed one iota.

Perched on the hills of Orange County, the restaurant offers panoramic views of Catalina Island, downtown Los Angeles, Disneyland’s nightly pyrotechnic extravaganza and the gorgeous SoCal coastline. Pair the views with a glass of wine from the award-winning house list, or partake in a hand-crafted cocktail.

A contemporary California steakhouse, Orange Hill features aged butcher-cut steaks (including a new menu item - the Steak Progressive showcasing four different cuts of premium beef) and the freshest of seafood (think miso-marinated Chilean sea bass, coconut shrimp and lobster and shrimp risotto).

Crab Cake Benedict

If you’re searching for a wonderful weekend brunch, this is where Orange Hill truly shines. Start out with a bottomless mimosa mixed and matched with your choice of unique flavor pairings - dragonfruit and watermelon, fresh cucumber mint, lavender-activated charcoal lemonade or pineapple jalapeno.

Raw bar offerings include chilled oysters on the half shell, salmon tartare (miso soy, citrus edamame smash, pickled Fresno peppers), Alaskan king crab legs and citrus poached shrimp cocktail.

A la carte entrees range from traditional favorites like fluffy thick-cut brioche French toast topped with cognac roasted golden apples and three-egg omelets. The “Brunchy Smash Burger” arrives as a cooked-to-your-liking double patty with Tabasco aioli, fried egg and applewood smoked bacon while the Hangover Hash is made from mouthwatering braised prime rib accompanied by roasted potatoes, poached egg and signature Hollandaise.

Love bennys? Orange Hill’s serves up several delicious signature benedicts - Classic, Crab Cake, Smoked Salmon and a trio of beef specialties: the Cape Grim Filet, Prime Zabuton and Dry-Aged Ribeye - all accompanied by Hollandaise, blistered tomatoes and my personal favorite ... chimichurri (an incredibly flavorful traditional Argentine sauce made of finely chopped parsley, minced garlic and olive oil that I can literally consume by the spoonful).

Whether you’re celebrating with friends, gathering with family or out for a romantic date night - come to relax, refresh, or reimagine - the possibilities here are lined up like the sights from the patio. All you have to do is drive up the Hill.
