Argyle is Amazing. Gem of Carlsbad
My wife and I eat there often. We love it every time. The food is fresh and perfectly prepared. We always bring our out of state friends when they come visit us. Highly recommended.

Fantastic food and service!
Fantastic food and service! Great experience! The complimentary popover rolls were delicious. We had the warm spinach salad for an appetizer, which they split for us without being asked. For an entree, we both had the California organic 8 oz filet mignon... cooked and seasoned to perfection! The lobster mac and cheese was a must. It was very rich and delicious.

We've gone twice for brunch and it is simply awesome for the price and view! Food is excellent with a great selection. Lovely place for that special occasion brunch (or not special occasion)!

I went for steak. They offer two qualities: California Prime and Wagyu from Idaho at twice the price. The Wagyu in touted as being fork-tender but at $68 for a Filet Mignon, I opted for the less expensive California variety Filet. It was prepared perfectly but the meat itself was a bit fatty and tough. This is a nice optional restaurant when staying at the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort or as a neighborhood restaurant but there is no comparison to Fleming's or the magnificent Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. One excellent little surprise at the Argyle though is their giant popovers served instead of bread. Amazingly good! The desserts were delicious as well and our waiter was outstanding. I'd go back, but I'd splurge on the Wagyu beef next time.

Prices are steep but the Wagyu beef is definitely worth trying. For a small eater, the option to purchase only a few ounces (which can be paired with prawns or fish) is a treat. Service is excellent and friendly.

Breakfast or brunch at Argyle is a breath of fresh air. Delicious food, elegant setting, hospitable service and beautiful views. It's at once high-end and fancy, yet comfortable and relaxing. Food and beverage choices are flavorful and varied, with unique and traditional dishes - something for everyone. Argyle's location on Batiquitos Lagoon is off the beaten path, so you have to know you're going there. The result is that even when ithe restaurant is full, it doesn't feel crowded or noisy. The other nice aspect is that, although its part of the Aviara Golf Club, the public is welcome and a golf theme is decidedly understated. Go for the food, for the views of the lagoon, for a breath of fresh air.

Argyle Still Excels
I was leery about having dinner on Father's Day (holidays are notably bad days to dine out anywhere) and we had been hearing rumors that the food had gone downhill here lately. However, my husband wanted to give them another try and chose it as his Father's Day present from our kids.
From the very moment we arrived it was perfect! Every detail was attended to..we had outgoing and very efficient waitstaff. The steaks were over-the-top delicious and prepared exactly as we ordered. The sides were very good and the popovers were outstanding as always. Where else in San Diego can one find popovers??? Nice touch.
Argyle is back on our list as the number 1 place to have a great meal. They beat out Flemmings, Ruth's Chris and West!

My husband and I have been to many Steakhouses all over the country.. This was absolutely amazing food, service, technique with their cuisine. The steak was melt in your mouth delicious, tomato mozzarella salad so fresh.. Lobster was perfect along with the sauce

We enjoyed the patio setting overlooking the golf course. Food was great. Pork carnitas tacos are recommended!

Marvelous place to dine. The only caveat was that the waiter was extremely slow to take our orders and deliver them.

Celebrated my 40th birthday with girlfriends. Brad, our server was wonderful. He took pictures of us, was attentive to our dining needs at all times. The weekend brunch is delicious offering traditional breakfast as well as specialty lunch entrees. The atmosphere was quiet, intimate, and the views were spectacular. I would highly recommend Argyle for a day of dining, reminiscing, and walking off the brunch on their georgeous resort grounds priceless.

Great service, good food
From the moment we arrived until we were done we were treated extremely well. The staff recommendations were very good and the overall meal was very good. The popovers were wonderful; my wife's Spinach salad was so much better than my Caesar salad, which was still very good. The steaks were very good but not the best we've ever had. The mushroom side and potato tots were very good. Overall it was a great evening and a very good meal .

Welcoming and charming setting in the lap of the Aviara community nestled in the Batiquitos lagoon. Veranda dining at its best offered in North county. Turkey club is always a favorite....Petite deserts with coffee are a delight. Will continue entertaining my visiting friends and family.

Surprising to find a Chicago or New York quality steakhouse in a north San Diego beach town. When you walk through the front door the Wow begins and the Wow does not stop until you walk back out that door.

Great food and service
this was our first time at Argyle and it wont be our last. The food was great and the service was excellent.

Excellent food, steaks served
Excellent food, steaks served black and blue as requested. Attention to wine service very poor.

Best kept secret in North County
Amazing just for desserts too! Apple pie ala mode with homemade vanilla bean and homemade root beer? Child please...amazing!!

Overall, very good, but...
While staying at the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort, this is a very nice choice for dinner in restaurant or drinks/snacks in the bar. Ambiance is top-notch. Service is, too, as at all the Park. Wine list is small, and except for a dearth of French wines (even for California), well composed. Steaks were very good, but at any price, I've had better quality elsewhere (Harry Caray's in Chicago). At Argyle, the dry-aged Ribeye had excellent flavor, but much of the connective tissue in the meat had not broken down as you would expect with a proper dry-aging. I suppose I should have asked "how long?" when ordering. I would not pay the higher cost for the dry-age. Overall the restaurant is very good, but not great.

Lunch to perfection
Went to lunch for a family occasion and was thoroughly impressed with the food, wait staff and the restaurant so much that we asked for the general manager and expressed our satisfaction. The food was uniquely prepared and had a tough decision on which item to choose. Everyone had something different and everyone agreed it was fantastic!
HIGHLY recommend for an upscale lunch.

First time there
Took my whole family. Waitress scored points by flirting with my 8 month old grandson... Very cute and enjoyed by all! Very very expensive, but all enjoyed the cuisine.

Superb Attention to Details
This is a promotion celebration and the whole experience contributed greatly to the feastivity. The wait staff was excellent: attentive, but never intrusive. Our meals were beautifully prepared and garnished with tasty sauces and "crusts". The piping hot popovers that cam before the meal were wonderful. The aged meat was as flavorful as I can recall. It is rare to find an entire table of people raving about every detail of their meal. This was that kind of occasion.

Best Steakhouse in San Diego
Not many people know about the Argyle and that in and of it self is sad. The food is GREAT, and the menu choices are even better since the last time I was there. They use local fresh ingredients and our server Blaine was fantastic as always. I can't say enough good things about this place, and I hope all steakhouse lovers have an opportunity to visit here soon!

Fine Country Club Ambiance
Enjoyed our lunch at the Argyle Club. I had the "hole in One" and it was excellent. Will definitely be here again wheI'm in Carlsbad.

We had a wonderful meal at
We had a wonderful meal at Argyle and were so happy we decided to go back after not being there in a very long time. The food was outstanding and the service excellent! Everything from start to finish went beyond our expectations. We have been so disappointed in many of the North County Restaurants, but Argyle did not disappoint. We will definitely return!

Dinner w/the Kids
We took our two kids (ages 11 and 13) with us to dinner. They have a decent kids menu, but our kids wanted things off the main menu and they were nice about that. The food was really good - the steaks were cooked as we ordered them and were very good quality. The seafood appetizers we had were terrific. Desserts were also varied and good. They also have a decent wine list. Overall, a very good experience.

Booked this while on vacation
Booked this while on vacation for thanksgiving dinner, service was great and the food was truly amazing. Everyone in my group raved about the quality of the food, even my kids loved all of it and they are very picky eaters. Price is a bit high in comparison to similar places but for me the quality of the food made up for it.
