The Summit House is serving up hearty fare

With beautiful views of North Orange County, The Summit House sits above it all. The exterior looks like an old English Inn with beautifully landscaped trees and shrubbery on the grounds. The interior is dark with a tavern off to the side and a huge main dining room with floor-to-ceiling glass windows so all guests can partake in the view. The tables are perfectly manicured with white linen table cloths and decorative folded napkins. The servers are dressed in period attire making the experience more memorable. All they need is the English accent and you would be transported to Ole England. My husband and I spend a Valentine’s Day dinner here back in the 1990s so we were interested to see if it had changed. Your evening starts with basket of bread (sourdough and walnut bread). I just love the scent of fresh aromatic breads!

Escargots Bourguignonne

Escargots Bourguignonne are served in a Brandy Pernod Garlic Butter. OMG, this is just like I remembered it. The Summit House was my first experience with escargot. Being from Hawaii, we eat lots of sea snails (called tsubu in Japanese). Escargot is so much better as it absorbs the flavor of anything that you serve with it. The Brandy Pernod Garlic Butter sauce is amazing! The escargot explodes with flavor. Tip: when you scoop the escargot from the holder or shell, make sure you dig deep to pick up the garlic chunks on the bottom. If you have eaten all of the escargot, take your bread and soak up the leftover buttery garlic flavor. Your bread is now a beautifully garlic flavored delicacy. Thumbs up, way up!

Caesar Salad

Caesar Salad is hearts of romaine with their classic Caesar dressing topped with shaved Reggiano Parmesan cheese. The dressing is bit too light – needs more garlic and anchovy kick. But I love the shaved parmesan and parmesan croustinis. Thumbs up!

Roast Prime Rib of Beef

Roast Prime Rib of Beef is slow roasted, carved to order, and served with their classic creamed corn, creamed spinach, and individual Yorkshire pudding. I ordered the Castle Cut which is a 24-ounce extra thick cut on the bone. The prime rib was cooked to a perfect rare, tender, and flavorful, but not quite the best I’ve ever had. You’ll definitely have leftovers with this cut. The creamed corn, on the other hand, was out of this world! It was creamy, sweet, and the kernels were still whole and juicily burst after biting into them. The creamed spinach was pretty good as well – creamy and balanced in flavor. The Yorkshire Pudding was rather plain but perfect for sopping up the meat juices and au jus. Thumbs up!

Rib Eye Steak

Rib Eye Steak is a 20-ounce USDA Prime bone-in rib eye, oak wood grilled, and served with straw onions and Gruyere au gratin potatoes. It was cooked to a perfect medium rare with an awesome char-grilled seal. The steak was tender, juicy, and full of flavor. The au gratin potatoes had a splendid brown crust of cheese on top and creamy layered potato goodness underneath. The vegetables were sautéed to perfection allowing them to retain their crispy greenness. The fried onion straws were okay. The dish would probably be fine without them. Thumbs up, way up!

Summit English Trifle

Since we were celebrating my husband’s birthday, they brought out a little something sweet to end our evening. The Summit English Trifle is layers of rum and brandy soaked cake with English custard, strawberries, Chantilly cream, and toasted almonds. I love that they had a little “Happy Birthday” chocolate placard and a candle to make a wish. The trifle was scrumptious and light. This was the perfect end to a heavily-laden meal of beef. Thumbs up, way up!
