We were very impressed with the gardens and the Veranda restaurant. The gardens were well manicured and very peaceful. The food was delicious and well presented. We will definitely return and bring other friends.

This restaurant is set in The Beverly Mansion in Fallbrook, CA. We sat on the veranda of the restaurant for Sunday Brunch. Indoor seating is available, but the veranda overlooks the gardens, the man-made lake and the beautiful gazebo. Amazing food and wine list. Jolene, our server, was very attentive and informative about the menu choices.

This is the most serene place for a meal with quiet conversation time. Diners can easily converse with each other and hear quiet chatting. The view is great too.

Our visit to the Gand Trradition was exquisite! The setting it breathtaking, the ding area is perfect and very relaxing. We met friends and it was great to be able to chat as there wasn't any noise to deal with. Now about the Food! We all 4 loved every bit of our meal! I had the Wellington Benedict... oh my what a foodie delight!! Two people had sandwiches and one had a Belgian waffle, everybody was happy and sufficiently suffonsified. We will mostbdefinittely be returning.

This is the perfect restaurant for folks who like to have quiet conversation during the meal! So many restaurants are so noisy! Patrons can unwind from their stressful lives in a beautiful garden setting. This is now my favorite restaurant with delightful menu choices! A rare gem hidden in Fallbrook!

1. Snacks provided on the table (vegetables with dip) looked old and limb. Upon request to have them replaced we were told they all looked that way and had just been placed on the table for us.

2. The champagne we ordered was flat (hardly any bubbles left).

3. Food we ordered was so so.

4. We were offered to buy tickets for the Garden, even though it had already closed for the day.

5. Nice service, but slow (it wasn't very busy).

6. View and ambiance was great!

This restaurant was recommended to us. Overall we were disappointed -- unfortunately.

This was my first time. A friend treated me to the Sunday Brunch.
The meal was delicious. Walking the beautiful gardens and surrounding grounds was a wonderful experience. I have visited the town of Fallbrook on several occasions and had no idea this beautiful place was here. I will definitely return.

I had friends staying at the Welk Timeshare Resort. While the men played golf, my girlfriends and I took a trip to Fallbrook to have lunch at The Grand Tradition. It was a cool (low 60s), but sunny day. The heaters on the veranda kept us comfortably warm. The environment was relaxing and perfect for quiet conversation. The tables had linen tablecloths and napkins and the chairs were quite comfortable. The menu offered a good variety of food selections and nice wine choices as well The food was fresh, colorful, well-prepared and delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and since my friends were visiting from Chicago and Kansas City, it was particularly enjoyable to have an outdoor meal in early March.

My favorite place ever! The most beautiful scenery sitting outside on the lovely Veranda over looking the pond and manicured gardens. Wonderful food and a menu providing a wide variety of choices and very reasonably priced.
After lunch or brunch, you can walk through the fabulous colorful gardens. A perfect day!

very very nice garden view with fountain. Food portion is proper. Love the avocado egg roll and waffle. The prime rib sandwich was a little heavy and the french toast was a bit over sweet. Great service, friendly staff. Very good experience overall.

The Veranda offers picturesque views of the lovely landscaped grounds. There's plenty of shade on the veranda. The service is excellent and the ambiance is quiet and peaceful. I gave the food a 4 because I ordered the avocado omelette and found it to be bland. My daughter ordered the beignettes and loved them! The avocado rolls were exceptionally good!

It took a long time for us to get our food,and it came out warm. The portions were small and one of the order's was incorrect. They apologized and offered to bring the item out after most of the meal was gone. Then they charged us full price for the item.

The menu is simple, not very large, and our meal was alright. The kitchen made several mistakes on our order, but the waitress was very good and not to blame for the meal being "so so." Were offered two deserts on the house for the kitchen's error. Atmosphere is amazing-especially with cooler weather. Will return again, with family and friends. A great little secret hidden away in Fallbrook.

Such a beautiful place to go to. Doesnt matter the reason just a great getaway. Seating over looks the lake as you get to see all the birds fly by, flowers, and full of life trees. The servers and other workers are all great. They help eachother out and always check in at a great time. Lovely place. Highly reccomend.
