We found Summit House by eating there after we had just been engaged with my now wife. We were sitting there thinking the Prime Rib was absolutely amazing and the view was stunning. We thought, "This is everything we wanted in a wedding venue, good food and a beautiful location. We wondered if they were also a wedding venue."Sent on 07/04/2017
Little did we know, Summit House was one of the most popular wedding venues in the area. I've since hiring Summit House, known so many people who have been to a wedding there or had their wedding there. I've vetted all the nearby venues and none could compare to Summit House. They give you the venue space for the entire day and were always there for you from the initial planning to our final wedding day. I am so glad to have had Mark and his team to work with on our wedding day. On the day of our tasting, they gave us so much food and every dish was absolutely delicious. If food is the most important highlight of your wedding day, Summit House is the perfect fit.
Special shout out to Marco, the maître d', for being there on our wedding day. This man deserves a raise! He was there from the beginning and making sure we were properly hydrated throughout our photo-shoot and making sure our photographer could get the shots we needed. Marco is incredible, really went above and beyond, I could not have thanked him enough. He made sure everything went as planned and also helped take care of the little changes that came up on the day of.

Amazing wedding venue!
After looking into multiple wedding venues we decided upon Summit House Restaurant for the following reasons:Sent on 01/26/2019
1) Close to home. We didn't want distance or driving to our wedding to be a pain in the butt for people. And Summit House was perfect in that most of our guests were from Orange County or LA.
2) Beautiful venue with outdoor ceremony & indoor reception. I loved their ceremony site with the gazebo & how guests would be sitting up on hill so they can witness our ceremony without any obstruction. Plus I wanted the reception to be inside due to weather concerns.
3) Reasonable Price. Honestly weddings are expensive but Summit House had very competitive pricing and was very reasonable.
4) Good food. Both my husband and I are foodies. Therefore, we did not want the food to suck... and the food at Summit House was amazing! On the day of our wedding the food tasted better than it did at our tasting. We were both very impressed.
5) Plenty of parking. Summit House has complimentary valet & self parking.
My husband & I got married at the Summit House this past weekend, 1.19.19. Honestly, it was the best decision we ever made. So glad we went with them and not another place!
Once we booked Summit House. Planning our wedding was like a breeze. LeeAnn and Mark answered all my questions regarding our wedding via email. They were quick to answer even the minor questions I had. Paying for venue was easy as well & they take CREDIT CARD!!! Score with the mileage points!!! Plus the tasting is an awesome experience for the family. It was like a meal with full plating of the dishes! Our families all enjoyed the experience!
We decided to do the Tudor Package & Buffet. Tudor Package comes with chivari chairs plus 3 passed appetizers & champagne & wine served at the table. I think it's a great deal if your guests drink! For those that dont drink they had martinelli apple cider for our guests. My husband and I didn't get a chance to try their apps bc we had to take our wedding portraits but our guests said they were delicious!
I went with the Buffet even though it was slightly more expensive bc I didn't want to worry about who's going to eat what & it was a good idea! People got to choose what they wanted to eat and not eat. Plus people were given the option to go get seconds if they wanted! My groom took advantage of that! Plus we had couple kids with severe allergies & Summit House made a separate plating of food for these kids and served them directly at the table. One the kid's mom praised Summit House for this and mentioned that it was the kid's first time trying green beans and that he loved it! Plus the groom and I got served with a plate full of everything from the buffet. I have heard of horror stories where the bride & groom doesn't even get to eat at their own wedding. This was not the case for us! We were so full from dinner!!!
The hosted bar at our wedding was a nice touch! Some people were taking advantage of it but it still didn't even hit our budget of $2000 since there was champagne & wine being served at the table. The bar was nice at the end of night when people were dancing they could grab drinks as well. Our bartender was nice & even took some pictures for us. Lol :)
Honestly, if you have your wedding at Summit House you do not need a wedding coordinator... unless you are REALLU bad at planning OR you dont want to plan. I am a planner & I planned everything from the day we got engaged up to our wedding day. But Summit House executed everything I wanted for my wedding on the day of since I personally wasn't able to.
LeeAnn & Cristina made sure everything was set up the way I wanted on the day of while I was getting my hair & makeup done in their bridal suite.
Mayra helped us with our wedding ceremony walk thru during rehearsal and on the day of. She made sure the ceremony flowed smoothly.
Cristina made sure reception went as planned & made sure to feed us! :)
Sam stayed thru out our reception and made sure everything ended nicely.
There were so many people at Summit House who made sure that our wedding went well. For that they were wonderful! I knew on the day of that I can just let go and let them handle it!
I most definitely recommend Summit House for your wedding venue! If you are contemplating... JUST DO IT! You won't be disappointed.

If you're thinking of having your wedding here, DO IT!Sent on 10/27/2017
The first time I step foot in here, I knew this was going to be our wedding venue. It has a romantic countryside feel to it that is also elegant and classy. Aside from the obvious beautiful view and building, I wanted our wedding to have AMAZING food (prime rib here is top notch)
But the part that surprised me the most was the service. Marco the banquet manager is AMAZING. He was like my 6th bridesmaid. He was there whenever I needed him (fixed the train on my dress for photos, held my bouquet, offered to bustle my dress if we didn't know how, brought us drinks, set up all the decor, etc). Not only did my fiancé and I notice how well he took care of us the whole evening, my family noticed too. That is a huge compliment. You can't buy service like that anywhere. Our server Cris was also superb. She'd check in on us with our beverages in between photos and during dinner time, she made sure we were taken care of. The staff made sure the wedding was a great time for everyone. Also I love my prime rib cooked medium rare and so I requested it that way for the wedding. I made a note on the invites that it would be served that way in case some people can't eat it then they can pick something else. Unfortunately I did see some plates be sent back to the kitchen for being too pink. I felt so bad for the wait staff for the trouble but they took care of my guests regardless. It really was the best day ever and it would not have been as amazing as it was if it weren't for the staff here. Thank you for making our wedding day PERFECT!! Again especially to Marco!!!
Summit House Price Rates
The Summit House is an extremely popular Ceremony and Reception Venue in Orange County. There are several reasons why. 1. It has a great view of Northern Orange County as it sits in the Hills of Fullerton. 2. The Grand Summit Ballroom is beautiful, well maintained so it doesn't need extensive decor to make it look fabulous although it does look even more breath taking with some floral and Up Lighting. 3. The food and menu is out of this world and let's just say your guests will impressed with the quality and talents of their chef. It is a restaurant so you'd expect the food to be tasty right? 4. And the biggest reason why this is such a highly sought after venue? Their service is phenomenal! The sales team, on-site coordinators and banquet staff all go out of their way to make sure you are well taken care of from the moment you book until your guest depart. Not only do they provide a great experience for you and your guests but they've always been extremely accommodating to our needs as DJ Entertainment. It's obvious that they totally understand that we are all part of the same team and that our ultimate goal is to serve you, the client. The Summit House has been doing this consistently since they opened in the early 90's and it is a testament to their success.
