Great food, great location with a view of the golf course AND the ocean at the same time, impeccable (and I don't use that word very often when it comes to restaurants) service for Sunday lunch. The only reason why I am not giving it five stars is the cost of drinks: a glass of sauvignon blanc (California) was $20.... More

A.R Valentine offers breakfast, lunch; and, dinner at The Lodge at Torrey Pines. With indoor/outdoor seating the restaurant offers golf and ocean views. Ask for a seat outside for the best views. A favorite for lunch is the seared Ahi salad. The dinner menu offers many seafood and meat options. Vegetarian options are available. Service is well paced and attentive.... More

Service, ambiance were absolutely perfect.; quiet, service timely, friendly, knowledgeable, and discreet, in a beautiful setting. Have had lunch there several times, and the food was absolutely wonderful! Brought some friends ( another foodie couple) to dinner after raving about the food. Restaurant was two-thirds empty ; should have been a clue. We all four ordered fish, and made it... More

My wife arranged dinner at A.R. Valentien and it was one of the most enjoyable dining experiences I'm ever had. Just walking into the Lodge is worth the trip. Beautiful fireplace , woodwork, and the smell of a mountain lodge. Service, food recommendations and atmosphere is A+++ Definitely needs to be on your bucket list.

We love this lodge so much that we were married there 8 years ago Dec and had a small luncheon party in the private dining room. Chef Jeff Jackson was so nice and accommodating with the menu and gave our guests several delicious selections. Service was excellent and it all made for a perfect day. We've been back for lunch...

I had the opportunity to experience this hidden gem with friends for lunch. The table was comfortable with an excellent view of the golf course. Our server was attentive, the food was delicious and I would definitely return again for lunch or dinner.

My friend and I booked our Thanksgiving reservation early and enjoyed a delightful meal. They offered a very generous plate of traditional Thanksgiving fare for those so inclined and several beautiful alternatives for the less traditional tastes. We enjoyed the non traditional offerings and were not disappointed. Food was delicious, bountiful and beautifully presented. Fortunately, they had take away boxes... More

The upstairs fine dining room (A. R. Valentien) is excellent, but a simpler (and less expensive) alternative, The Grill, is less well known and often overlooked by those visiting Th eLodge at Torrey Pines. The Grill is located downstairs, at the northwest corner of the facility, right on the edge of the golf course. You can eat indoors out out,... More
