    We are locals and dine here between four and six times a year mostly for special occasions we have come to know some of the staff, particularly Paul I’m always remembers the details. We enjoy and accommodates us. Notably, there is still a standard of service here that has, for the most part disappeared in the industry, The staff here doesn’t simply take your order smile at you and walk away they actually care about what they do and go out of their way to show some style and grace.

    AR Valentien at The Lodge at Torrey PinesResponded 6 days agoDear guest, thank you for your loyal patronage over the years. Service excellence is one of our hallmark values. Your recognition of our staff and world-class service is greatly appreciated. We look forward to warmly welcoming you back soon. Wishing you a very happy holiday season.

The intimate booth seating made the whole experience quite special. We’ve had dinner at AR Valentein before but the chef and the service seem to have stepped up a notch. Hope we can dine there again soon.

    AR Valentien never disappoints. The food, ambiance, views. service, decor are all the tops. The individual service of two kinds of bread and butter to start your meal is always fun to choose from Unlike other places, there is no charge for bread and butter nor is there a charge for parking. The Craftsman architecture of the building is worth the trip in itself. Don't miss it it for the holidays for they will have a gorgeous tree in the lobby that you will want to have your picture taken in front of. Have fun.! You will enjoy every minute.

    My husband and I came for breakfast. We have dined for Dinner many times and have enjoyed it each time. Our breakfast experience did not disappoint. Beautiful view on a fall day. Our server Willow Was the best! Willow gave us great recommendations and was very attentive. I usually find breakfast filling and unsatisfying- this was different. This was the best breakfast I have had- the flavors so complimentary and very satisfying but not overfilling. Looking forward to returning with the rest of my family.

    We lunched here frequently BC (Before COVID), but they were not open for lunch until recently. The food was actually better than we recalled. We had great service from Willow. It’s pricey, but worth it.
