Even though we were late because of an accident on the freeway, they sat us and treated us very well. My meal was later than my friends coming out so they comped it. Food was excellent.

We took my mother in law for a birthday brunch. We had a toddler, a teenager and 3 adults. Everyone enjoyed the food so much. There was something for everyone on the menu and we did get a scrambled egg (not on the menu) and fruit for the littlest one. The grounds and view from the table were gorgeous. We toured the gardens and took a walk around the pond after brunch and everyone enjoyed that so much. We are looking forward to coming back. This is truly a hidden gem and we are so happy we found it and got to enjoy it.

Great food, beautiful tranquil scenery, and good service, what not to love! Visited for a Sunday brunch. Seated on the terrace overlooking the pond and beautiful green grass. Ordered hummus platter as an appetizer, it was so good and quite filling. Entrees were the burger & prime rib sandwich. Both were delicious! Prime rib was juicy, savory and flavorful meat smothered in Gouda cheese, just delicious. I would definitely visit again and bring other family and friends for the experience. After dining took a walk around the lake and to the waterfall area. We didn’t visit the garden but heard it was just as spectacular. Next time! Nice hidden gem with great ambiance.

A unique and beautiful venue. The food, the service and the view are all a “10”. Worthy of a drive from Delmar or La Jolla.

We were warmly welcomed and seated. There isn't a table without a gorgeous view. Everything gave a feeling of healthy cleanliness but did not interfere with the ambience. Service was excellent. Friendly and knowledgeable. Food was delicious. There was a variety of choices. Prices were very fair and appropriate. I will definitely return.

The Veranda Restaurant is my favorite! The service, food, and garden ambiance are exceptional. It is worth the drive and having to make the weeks ahead reservations. I was married at Grand Traditions and it is always special to walk through the gardens.

A lovely day with two friends celebrating their 75th birthdays! From mimosas to Crabcake Benedict to Lemon Mascarpone Cake, we also celebrated getting both doses of our vaccinations. We savored every delectable bite and every moment of happy conversations!

This was my third visit to The Veranda Restaurant at Grand Traditions Estate. First, even though it was Easter, they were flexible to allow me to change the time of my reservation at the last minute. Food was great and service excellent as usual. The grounds and gardens are absolutely spectacular! The afternoon was so relaxing and enjoyable. I highly recommend it!
