Was fabulous! I would go again and again! Make sure to not go for a "quick lunch"--it's the kind of place you want to take your time and also enjoy the incredible gardens.

It's like going back in time on the veranda of a Victorian home with a view of lake and gardens.The food is a treat for the eyes and palate with much of the produce grown on the property.Service was impeccable with no feelings of being rushed.Quiet as well.It was an elegant lunch served as if in a private home.

The restaurant is located
The restaurant is located in GrandTraditions in Fallbrook. The grounds are beautifully groomed and planted with colorful flowers, waterfalls and large shady trees.
We walked the trails before lunch and our table was ready at the reserved time. I ordered a cup of the mushroom soup and next time will order a full bowl,also had a salad and added the chicken it was tasty enough to order again. For the dessert I had a piece of marscapone cake and shared it with my two dining companions. We look forward to lunching there again.

What a absolute pleasure it was to dine here. The food, the view, the service, all was exceptional. This was our first time dining here, and we are putting it on our list of "go-to" places not only when we have company, but also when the 2 of us want that extra special spoil me now moment!

It was a fabulous experience. absolutely a gorgeous place to have lunch or brunch any time.

amazing outdoor brunch
This amazing outdoor brunch is by reservations only, and offers a spectacular view of the gardens, lake, and fountain. Its exquisite ambiance is enhanced by the upscale service and food presentation. Don't let the low prices of the food fool you, as everything was fresh and made to order. We would not suggest bringing young children (under age 8) as the atmosphere lends itself to peaceful blissness away from family restaurant style chaos.

Excellent venue, wonderful experience, great service. It's worth the drive to Fallbrook to experience the Veranda. Be sure to walk the gorgeous grounds. Just beautiful!

Grand Tradition is a wonderful establishment for any special occasion. The breakfast/lunch/weekend brunch is wonderful as you sit outdoors and enjoy the scenic view of the gardens and water feature. Reservations are required, and the food and ambiance is worth the drive.

My grown children and I loved our day with you. We came early and toured the grounds which were prettier than Disney Land. We then had lunch and everything was wonderful and fresh. The manager visits your table to check and see if all is well, a very nice touch. I was interested in having my Bridge group partake in lunch and play Bridge afterwards. We well schedule that for Oct. We were fortunate that the weather was perfect, a gorgeous day!

An afternoon on the veranda
Definitely worth the drive from Point Loma! Have already recommended the Veranda to all who will listen and am planning a ladies group soon.

This is a Gem... Noted for
This is a Gem... Noted for its fantastic gardens...the Grand Traditions is a wonderful outing and its restaurant a pleasant surprise. The surprise is the quality and variety of the food offerings. All tables are outside on the veranda...and covered given the sun and other elements one might experience during the year. Our lunch was outstanding...and coupled with a cold glass of Reisling on this summer day...a wonderful event. You have to make reservatons for the restaurant ahead of time...we did 3 weeks prior to going. The gardens offer a wonderful respit to the hustle and bustle of daily life... Then proceed to the restaurant for a great lunch. Bon Appetite... T.Nelson

Fabulous view - Delicious food
Loved the view and the food! But the service was slow. A bit confusing where to stand to be seated because the waitress was too busy with so many tables and was often in the back, leaving the waiting area unattended. Loved the Caprice sandwich and the avocado roll. I'll be back with other friends! Garden walk is lovely, but a bit expensive if you don't have lunch.

Beautiful special lunch
Reservations were easy, staff was friendly, grounds were manicured and stunning. Appetizers were excellent, we were anxious for lunch, and bingo it was just as good the dessert was delightful. We can't wait to share our experience with family and friends. This was a perfect lunch to welcome my Aunt & Uncle to Fallbrook! Thank you.

Grand Tradition Veranda Restaurant
Perfect locale for a wonderful lunch! Everything was top-notch, from the parking lot attendant to the servers to the grounds to the food. It took me two weeks to book a reservation on a Friday but it was well worth the wait. Prices are very reasonable and the service was excellent. Will definitely be going back--HIGHLY recommend it!

Can't wait to go again
This was the most relaxing, yummy, beautiful, friendly, scenic place of ever been. It's now my little piece of paradise. Planning on returning soon with the family for brunch.
Walked through the grounds prior to lunch. The waterfalls and flowers were beautiful. The lunch on the Veranda was so relaxing overlooking the heart shaped lake. Food was presented in such a beautiful manner that it was an Instagram and Facebook instant hit! The prices were very reasonable, the quality and taste was superb. Can't say enough good about this place. Too bad I'm already married because this one be #1 choice for the venue!

All aspects of our lunch were outstanding---the appetizer, entree, drink and dessert were all tasty and reasonably priced with an excellent variety from which to choose. The hostess and waitress were professionally dressed and very attentive to our needs---both very gracious young ladies. The ambiance was delightful---a very relaxing environment. We plan to be repeat customers!

Lovely Setting for any occasion
We enjoyed our lunch on a perfect day to walk the gardens and enjoy the grounds. The staff were friendly and engaging and our salads were fresh, generous and tasteful. Mushroom soup was fabulous. Will definitely return.

An exceptional experience
Elegant, yet casual & comfortable. Enjoyed the privacy of the limited number of tables on The Veranda & the serenity of the outstandingly lovely environment.

The Veranda is a garden of eden
The food was fantastic, wait staff perfect and attentive, gardens beautiful and weather although cool was perfect, the outdoor heaters made it a perfect lunch. The food is prepared with fresh ingredients, very imaginative dishes a foodies dream come true. I would recommend this for everyone, but leave the kids at home. It is definitely more of an adult venue. If you want to include children, have The Veranda do a picnic basket and enjoy a table in the gardens where everyone can wander around and enjoy the exotic plants. I give The Veranda an outstanding in every situation.
