    Since discovering Club M two years ago, it has continued to be our favorite place for dancing: the bands are great, the waitstaff is courteous and prompt, the food is excellent. We especially like the option of sitting indoors while still being able to step outside to cool off between sets. It's classy and upscale.

    We went to Club M to see a band we were interested in having play at our wedding (we loved them and are going to book them, so that's great!). Otherwise, we probably wouldn't have had occasion to go to Club M. The food and drinks were great, but the prices are frankly absurd. I understand that it's a very nice facility that likely has very high overhead costs, but come on...this is a "Club" at a hotel in inland San Diego...this isn't New York City or Vegas. Probably won't attend again, but if you have occasion to go there, know you will find good food, but just be prepared to spend more than you otherwise might!

    I had been wanting to visit The Grand Del Mar for years ago finally decided to check it out online on Mother's Day to see what was happening. I was pleasantly surprised to find an available reservation at 1pm for Mother's Day Brunch at Club M. I must say that I experienced The Best Tasting "Eggs Benedict" that I've had in San Diego...so far :-)

    I really enjoy being able to dance to a live band that plays up to date tunes and I don't have to go out late to do it. this was the first time I have actually dined here as well as dance, and I was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of food and service. There is a good wine selection and tapas selection as well. It was very quality food. I have already recommended it to many of my friends.

    Dined on 3/22/2014
    Everything about Club M is great and I love to have a classy local place to go with friends and dance but there is one major issue that my friends and I fear will keep us away forever from this local gem and that is the growing numbers of riff raff crowd that seems to slither in the place. Some of the people that come here are down right nasty and getto. I urge Club M to first off enforce a strict dress code. We saw guys on the dance floor in wife beaters & saggy pants & another guy in shorts and sandals. This is a five 5 resort guys, not Pacific Beach!!! A cover charge would also be a great way to filter out the crowd. Keep it classy Club M or you will lose the clientele that can actually come and do bottle service.

    The food was tasty enough but I had five hours of stomach pain that night. Lost sleep And was so uncomfortable. Maybe I was allergic to something because my husband was OK. But we probably won't go back again even thought it was lovely, And one of our favorite places. We've dined there before with no problem.

    Search the world and finding a venue as this would be difficult, unless you're willing to spend a ton of change in some posh digs in an exotic location. Right here in River City (read: San Diego) we are treated to the finery of opulence and superb service in an unmatched location where faux cascades blend with the impeccably manicured landscaping. Undoubtedly, Club M is not a profit generator, however, gracias Mr. Papa Manchester for maintaining this gem as a courtesy for us.

    My husband and I enjoyed the live band and the drinks. However, the food was not worth the price. We ordered sliders, calamari, fish tacos - a variety of appetizers. The food lacked taste, very mediocre and we expected something better considering the price of each tapas.

    Dined on 9/14/2013
    I like this club overall, the food and the music are very good, except the drinks whether it's a cocktail or wine always give me bad migraine next day without exception. Maybe the quality of the drink is not as good as it seems. I order same drinks from most other places, I know when the cocktail supposed to be made with Grey Goose vodka gives me a headache the next day, it was probably not made with Grey Goose as described. Hope they get to read this review and stop replacing with different kind of alcohol. I don't mind paying the higher price for the alcohol, and I expect them to deliver it.

    There are none like this is San Diego. You can dress up, dress down, order from one of the county's finest kitchens upstairs. This is all you want an intimate dance club to be, without the vulgar representation of the more common element. Look no further for a cross between Anthology and Humphrey's Backstage, but with that sophisticated, aristocratic setting only the Grande has. What a find! This is like a retreat from the hurried world beneath.

    This gem is around the corner in Carmel Valley and often times overlooked by locals. Great breakfast with the family, my niece and her fiance'. The service was fantastic and the food very good and the dining overlooking the course was really great on Sunday. We ordered some pastires to srat to take our time and catch up, then onto the menu with numerous options. Those that had huevos rancheros raved about it and the egg white frittata and omelettes were all meet with yum! Been here for lunch too and always go away happy! Try this local gem and you too will keep coming back!

    1. We had to ask to be served 2. When our food came they gave us the wrong order and tried to argue with us to say we ordered wrong. I told the waitress to show me the menu to prove we did not order wrong and she did not bring the menu. 3. Food was okay, but I would rather go somewhere else to eat after playing 18 holes @ The Grand. Nice course, okay food.
