Argyle is a welcome alternative to noisy and crowded steakhouses. It has a more relaxed setting and the servers greet you in a nice way. Seating is varied and plentiful and for steak lovers the menu features a choice of rubs, crusts and sauces to enhance the meat. My 5 oz filet was more than enough and I thought perhaps they had served me the 8 oz. filet by mistake. I could not eat the entire filet and took some home. The twice baked potato was thoroughly baked and tasty. We did not feel rushed as is sometimes the case. All in all, Argyle is a different and nice dining experience.

Always good at Argyle. I had the ribeye and my wife had the new york. My wife wants medium and I took med-rare. The steaks were perfectly cooked. I did the argyle sauce and it beats anything I've had on a steak. Best part...the argyle s'mores are back!

The Argyle was very elegant and classy. The view of the lagoon and golf course was very relaxing. I had the buffalo chicken salad and it tasted delicious. The rest of our group was also very satisfied with their meals. I will be back very soon to try other menu delights. The wait staff was very accommodating and professional.

The only thing that was good here was the heavy pour the bartender had with my whiskey. Guess they have to do that to make you drunk enough to not be able to taste the horrible food.

Met up with my parents while we were in the area. We were hoping to have a nice steak lunch. We didn’t realize only brunch is available on the weekends.

Food was good and the view was excellent, overlooking the putting green and lake.

Would be wonderful if a lunch menu was available on the weekends.

Last minute dinner reservation. Directions on OpenTable website were incorrect. We called Argyle as we were late. They held the table. We were seated in a small area with four tables for two. Filets were good. Spring Pea side was unusual and very good. Popovers were a pleasant surprise. Bar drinks were well crafted.

Mother's Day brunch. $98/ person. Average food. Prime Rib like shoe leather. Decent choice of seafood. Average omelet station. Very good dessert choices. Overall decent but way overpriced! $98 doesn't even cover mimosas ($20) extra.

Pricey... great food...above excellent service. We had one of our party, who had to go pick up his daughter, before the meal was served. We told the staff. The rest of our food was served timely. His food arrived within a few minutes of him returning, steak still perfectly medium rare, and all the food hot… And the root beer for his daughter. Staff could not have handled it better!

The smell inside was terrible. It smelled like raw sewage. It was even more disgusting in the bathroom. The hostess claimed not to smell anything and then said maybe it was the lagoon. Funny thing for it to be the lagoon when the smell was only on the inside of the building not outside where the lagoon is.

We recently stayed at 4 Seasons, Aviara & celebrated multiple bday milestone: 13, 50, 60, 78, & mom's 95th! Love Carlsbad & come here 5-6x each year. Dining at Argyle is a must, especially following a 30+ person party. Steaks were really amazing. This is the place in Calf. that you will always get an amazing steak. We ordered 8 oz. filets, so flavorful, & usually cooked to perfection, but one was really undercooked. (I'd rather have an undercooked than overcooked.) We skipped the optional crust seasonings (we feel it masks the meat flavor) and shared 3 sauces instead: the wine sauce, the Argyle sauce (like a Worchestershire), and my fave., the Bernaise. We also ordered 3 sides for the 4 of us - women - and it was plenty. (Sides are a la carte.) We ordered charred green beans (so overly spicy that we had to send back), a great baked potato, and asparagus to replace the green beans *but the asparagus never came. With a bottle of Justin Cab. for the table, we were set for a lovely dinner. BTW, It begins with their infamous and complimentary pop-overs. The best I've had. Here's my one very negative comment and something I cannot tolerate: the main waiter (good looking male, 30's, dark hair) was snobby and condescending throughout our meal and we almost asked for a new waiter, but that would have been embarrassing for everyone. "Snobby waiters" should not even be in any statement or any review at any restaurant - and especially the Argyle. Was he disappointed that he got all women? Women not on a company budget, who weren't 30? Who knows! buy your mind goes places..and funny thing, we always leave over 20% tip. It's just annoying, hurtful, and very, very disappointing. The 2nd waiter (maybe Thomas or Tommy?) saved the day with his very thoughtful and friendly nature. Finally, we ended our meal with a lovely, complimentary birthday dessert plate shown in photos. Also featured are the 60 and 95 year old celebrants!

This was our 4th dinner at the Argyle in the last six months. We enjoyed this restaurant for the first time during the dine around San Diego event last year. The restaurant is within a mile of our home and in the ten years we've lived here, we were unaware of it....we're making up for lost time. The Argyle has fast become one of our favorite places to dine. The service is outstanding, the food wonderful.....enjoyable for a middle of the week dinner, or a special occasion.

Usually a lovely restaurant. This time I made the mistake of ordering the Buffalo Chicken Salad. What came wasn't a salad but fried chicken strips uncut on lettuce with no dressing. The dressing was smeared around the outside of the plate. I asked to have it as a salad and they tossed it. When they returned it the tough chicken strips were STILL uncut. I sent it back to be cut into the salad - isn't a "salad" supposed to be cut up??? And no mention on the menu that the chicken was fried - Ugh!

Obviously the menu needs more explanation as another friend at the table got seafood fried on a salad though no mention on the menu. Menu needs upgrading.
