Very unexpected elegance near Fallbrook. Careful COVID protocols, elegant surroundings, great food and service. The walk around in the garden was worth the trip alone. In all, a wonderful place for breakfast or lunch. Wish they served dinner too!

The setting is lovely but was marred by the noisy grass renovation machinery. Sanitation and distancing were great. Food was excellent and well presented. Just the visit we were hoping for!

The service was superb and the relaxed ambiance for lunch was so welcomed. We enjoyed the prime rib and garden docent sandwiches and both were very tasty. We also had dessert, the flourless chocolate torte was very rich but yummy and the lemon berry marscapone cake was refreshing. The food presentation was all beautifully done we enjoyed our delightful lunch at the Veranda.

We love this place. It is like a storybook setting. We were celebrating a birthday and my other 2 friends enjoyed their lunch, but mine was probably the worst omelette I'd ever had (the Del Rey Avocado) with hardly anything in it. I didn't want to make a fuss and ruin our wonderful day, but it was perplexing that it was so uninspiring and dull. Hopefully there will be new items on the menu next time.

The ambiance is so amazing and the food was great too!! I wanted a birthday lunch for my husband since his birthday is the day before Halloween it usually is filled with carving pumpkins so it was nice to plan a bit ahead and enjoy the lunch with family.💕🎉🎂

lovely venue and lunch but the service almost ruined. Just one example among several, my friend and I both ordered salads. They were huge, served with a very small amount of balsamic vinaigrette. We both asked for extra dressing. Fifteen minutes later, she brought one small container of additional dressing. The last of the salad was very dry, taking away from its excellence. We shared a dessert, and were given no flatware to enjoy it. They were, however, very quick to bring the bill and hovered to have us pay it.
some things you can blame on covid, but this was poor management.
i am saying yes i would recommend because of the food and ambiance.

This is the cream of the crop restaurants in North San Diego County. A beautiful lake to look at while you eat on the Veranda. Gorgeous flowers all over the acreage. Needless to say everyone we've taken there is in AWE....... the service and food are wonderful as well! Remember to make reservations well in advance!

If you are looking for a place with an excellent view and the service to match, this is the place! The food was very delicious. IThe breakfast eggrolls and the Wellington Benedict are excellent. The only menu item that needed a little more was the prime rib sandwich. If you like horseradish, then the taste is fine. If you order the horseradish on the side, then ask for salt and pepper because the prime rib has no flavor without it.

Four of us gathered to celebrate an 88th birthday. The food and surroundings were just lovely! Every table looks out over the lawn and lake. The wait staff was very attentive and delivered extra drinks when requested. We were there for 2 hours and never felt hurried to finish and leave. (No one was waiting for a table.) The birthday "girl" said it was the nicest birthday celebration she ever enjoyed.

Our waiter Sava made our experience. He was extremely prompt and had excellent drink recommendations. He went out of his way to make sure our dining experience was perfect! The ambience was lovely and we enjoyed walking around the grounds. We had a delicious wedding day brunch and will likely come back for years to come. Ask for Sava if you would like the most professional, welcoming, and friendly staff member around!

We had a wonderful meal, sitting on the veranda, overlooking the beautiful pond. Most of us had BLTA sandwiches with sweet potato fries, one had the Wellington Benedict, and one had the Garden Docent, and we all loved our meals.
