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.

Get a table outside (they have warmers), get there while there is light, watch the sun set over the golf course. Food is a touch precious and expensive but it is worth the splurge.

A. R. Valentien was far and away the best meal/service/ambience combination I have ever experienced. Every detail was masterfully crafted and executed. The tasting menu with wine pairing was a wonderful selection that was a joy to experience from beginning to end.
I cannot recommend this highly enough!

Stayed at the Torrey Pines Lodge, so had the opportunity to eat in this restaurant several times. Service was impeccable and the food was excellent at each meal. If you can sit outside on the deck, take advantage. The hostess even took the time to explain the art work in the restaurant ante room before we dined which was a nice touch. Manager came over at each meal to ask if we needed anything or if something was not to our liking

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!
