Description: The Lodge’s signature restaurant, A.R. Valentien, highlights regional San Diego cuisine served in an elegant, timbered indoor-outdoor dining room overlooking the 18th hole of Torrey Pines Golf Course. Executive Chef Jeff Jackson sources only the best local provisions, and the menu changes frequently based on seasonal fare available. The restaurant takes its name from a talented early 20th-century California artist whose works are exhibited throughout the restaurant.

Great food, superb service and wine! Had trouble deciding to eat my Argentine flank steak with or without the exquisite French style sauce! Great special 70th birthday dinner. Nice and darkly romantic!

I was really excited when we decided to spend my birthday weekend in La Jolla and immediately made a lunch reservation on a Monday at AR at The Lodge. We were able to get a table outside and they even customized my menu with a birthday greeting. The local chef's menu was tasty and the butter poached lobster was delicious. Service was wonderful. We will be back for dinner for sure.

What a wonderful experience to discover the delicious food at a fantastic resort!! After a nice relaxing cocktail it was even nicer to sit down to a perfectly cooked steak at A.R. Valenien's. To be so relaxed in such deluxe accommodations was the beginning of an extra nice visit to Torrey Pines.
