We were dissatisfied with our table location and the staff was not particularly receptive to changing the table location. Considering the prices and reputation of the restaurant, the tables were bare and had no table cloth or place mats. There were to flowers or other decorations that one would expect from a restaurant like this.
Finally, for a simple standard Thanksgiving dinner, the price was very high and was not advertised in advance.
I have had much better experiences for less money.

I expected considerably more for the cost.
The service, while friendly, was mediocre at best. The food was overpriced and underwhelming. Ordered 5 Oz Wagyu, they cut it in half AFTER cooking it. Of course this is going to result in all the juice to run out. Sure enough a dry Wagyu steak??!!

Considering the price range of this place, get some white table cloths! Is this Outback Steakhouse? Probably would have had a better steak, more money in my pocket, and better experience had I gone there instead.

We loved Argyle! The service was stellar. The food was excellent- I had swordfish with a lemon butter sauce. We shared the sides among the group. The popovers are worth the trip ( served instead of bread or rolls). We had a party of 8 and had our own private dining area.

If you go for happy hour be sure to order the Asian chicken wings and truffles popcorn.

We went to Argyle as local first timers to explore their restaurant week menu. The food was great, but we felt like our server did not give us regular attention (did not check in after we got our food). We felt like we didn’t get the regular level of attention because we weren’t spending as much as other tables.

Food was excellent, service was attentive but not "classy" to match the setting and the menu. (At our table for four, server stood beside one guest and reached around and across to deliver items to all four.) That's poor training, not so much the fault of the server. Not a deal-breaker, but disappointing.

Four of us went during the first day of the San Diego Restaurant week and had that menu.....it wasn't much different from the regular menu. The ceviche was very fishy and we could not eat. The pazole was good. The turkey sandwich was dry with 2 thin pieces of turkey on hard bread. The bread and butter were good. The dessert that came with the 2 course lunch was about 1/4 the size of a normal piece of cake...not worth the price of the restaurant week menu. The service was good and waiter was very helpful. The view was nice. I had noted it was for an anniversary....no one even mentioned that during the entire lunch.

Great food but the ambiance was not that great. The furniture looked like the lunch cafeteria at a golf course and my seat was so old! I had to use my sweater under my rear to feel comfortable. There was a disconnect between the delicious high end food and the shabby old furniture. I paid over $100 for a 4ounce steak alone and the atmosphere felt like a golf club at brunch.

The negatives out weigh the positives and I would not return. Positives: Excellent service and food. Negatives: 1. The corkage was $35.00, which is an insult. I don't care what other restaurants charge, this is an insult. $20.00 is plenty. 2. Noise was very high. This place needs acoustic tiles in the ceiling. 3. A large family group - three families and half a dozen kids were placed in a large table at the center of the location rather than the very back. As might be expected, the children had not been trained on "inside voices." Very noisy kids with parents ignoring them, which is distracting and really interfered with our enjoyment of the meal. Being a resort affiliated restaurant is no excuse. Put groups like this at the back. 4. A restaurant that has the best quality of beef available, which provides the opportunity to choose from four types of steak knives should have table cloths. I suspect that the knives were a holdover from prior management. A resort typically has their own laundry services; get table cloths and a new manager. The chef deserves better management support.

We went there for a Birthday Dinner for my wife. We sat on the patio with a beautiful view of the 18th hole and lagoon. Our waiter, Jesse, was fantastic. Attentive and friendly but not too much.
The crab corn chowder was outstanding. My filet was a bit overcooked and just ok. The choices of sauces and rubs were great.
Overall a great place for a special occasion.

Steak was devoid of any juice or flavor as it apparently had been baked in oven. Its exterior had been coated with some rub that had a slight burn taste. The steak's appearance closely matched the leather menu cover! Salad was served in 1/4 Romaine lettuce heads. Flatware doesn't cut it. They should have cut it up or provided steak knives for the purpose. Serving food in iron cooking utensil is unattractive. I didn't know it was campfire cooking. It certainly qualifies as a Resort Rip-Off!
