Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Service was SUPER. The food very good to excellent! We enjoyed the scenic location and friendly staff and outstanding location for a special day. Thanks for having another spot in the M properties to enjoy."

  • "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!"

  • "It's been awhile since I've heard such great live club music. Republic of Music rocked it! Drinks were fantastic, and the big opening to the patio provided great ambiance."

  • "Stephen is absolutely a gem he has some of the best customer service.He made my first experience at Club M very comfortable, charming. He's busy but efficient he doesn't ignore you or take forever to take care of you as if you were the only one there. All the staff were friendly helpful.I loved the patio food and my drink , fabulous"

  • "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 :-)"

  • "It was my turn to pick a place for our weekly date. My husband really enjoyed himself and it was fun to surprise him with a place he's never been before. Great ambiance for couples and singles alike. Service was great and so was the food and bevs."

  • "We love going as a group and dancing together to a really good band. The tapas are good and fun to share. "

  • "Limited menu, but food is wonderful nonetheless. Staff are helpful and accomodating."

  • "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 4/4/2014
  • "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."

  • "It is not a restaurant, it is a bar. OK club. Not a hip crowd. Poor band."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "The tapas were very good. The drinks were average. The service was good. The live band was very good and the DJ was excellent for dancing. Overall, a very nice Valentine's Day evening."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "My friends were late, so we had to give up our resos at 6:30. We arrived at 9:25 pm, and they were able to see this at a table right by the dance floor right away. We felt so lucky. It was my girlfriend's 50th birthday! We danced the night away."
    Dined on 1/30/2014
  • "I ordered California fish taco for $11. Got 2 tiny fried fish. No salsa. Decided to order Tiramisu for desert. The cake was something that came out of the vending machine. Not as described. However, I came to see the good band that performed there. Nice club. Vegas price for the drinks."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Quiet elegance, quality dining experience! Great place to being guests and out-of-towners!"
    Dined on 1/14/2014
  • "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."

  • "Combo Libertad, great band, great people, great time! Nice friendly service. Elegant atmosphere. Beautiful decor."
    Dined on 11/1/2013
  • "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 10/19/2013
  • "Food was ok, service was not good and it was very loud inside,would have rather have been outside or in the sports bar section of the restaurant. Great for a party atmosphere with a group but that was not what we were looking for. Will now better next time to either go with a group or request outside seating"
    Dined on 10/5/2013
  • "Always a nice time for apps early on being able to listen to a nice live band and then dancing later in the evening."
    Dined on 10/5/2013
  • "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."
    Dined on 9/14/2013
  • "We are fortunate to have a spectacular venue as this in San Diego. It is like dining or dancing among the crowned heads of Europe. An oasis in the mundane world outside, this is a world unto itself."
    Dined on 9/7/2013
  • "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."
    Dined on 8/24/2013
  • "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!"
    Dined on 8/18/2013
  • "I had a nice time but, I lost my blue topaz and gold bracelet. It probably got knocked off when I was dancing. If you find it, I would appreciate getting it back. Thank you, Patricia Please leave a message at, 858-774-0650, 858-333-5979, or 858-762-2287"

  • "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."

  • "Good professional crowd with good dance participation. Mighty Untouchables are amazing. Shrimp quesadilla is delicious."
    Dined on 6/8/2013
  • "Tapas was very good, it's a club scene for sure, service was less than desirable for the price. luckily we had reservations for a table since the wait for drinks and even the check were delayed. The people watching was entertaining. Not for good conversation since the music ruled the airwaves. both band and dj were good and dance floor was crowded"

  • "Club m is a very nice place for breakfast-however the menu selection is quite limited -beautiful atmosphere outside-reasonable prices for location."

  • "THE menu is tapas, but they are excellent. When there is a live band, make a reservation then move into the club room for a reserved table for the live band."

  • "It was the first time going to Club M at The Grand Del Mar. We specifically went to celebrate a birthday and for the band that was playing. The music, food, drinks, ambience and service were all excellent. It was a great evening. We look forward to patronizing the establishment again soon."

  • "We had a party of 10 for a birthday party. The food was awesome, the service was excellent. It was very disappointing that we sat next to gentlemen (3 at different times) who smoked cigars. For three hours we had to smell cigars. This is apparently a place that cigar smokes congregate and that is fine. I just think that we should be alerted to this fact on the web-site or when we made the reservation. If you want to eat good food while smelling cigar smoke, dine here."
