First and foremost, I would like to commend Eduardo on his exceptional service as our server today. He went above and beyond and exceeded our expectations! He deserves the highest praise today.

We came into a small misunderstanding on one of the food entrees but it was quickly fixed. Our food came out in time and was delicious and well presented. The portions were also very full and worth the prices. Fries did not come out soggy and were crispy with each bite!

The view was amazing. Torrey Pines has always been popular for golfers elite, and we can see why. We absolutely can’t wait to come back!

Beautiful view, Out standing service. Great place for weekend Breakfast. Outdoor only because of the pandemic, but a spectacular view of the first tee of the famous Torrey Pines Golf Course. Out door covered patio has heaters at every table so you'll be more than comfortable in the depths of a Southern California winter :)

Beautiful atmosphere overlooking the golf course. Had the ahi poke as an appetizer but surprised it did not come with won-tons or even tortilla chips--it was very tasty however. Had the cheeseburger as well which was excellent. Only complaint is the hamburger was the only handheld that was available for dinner--would think they would have some sandwiches available but was told could only get them at lunch.

we arrived late after flying cross country and checking into are room at the hilton next door. The Hilton's restaurant was closed. Its outside with heaters but what can you do. I had the sea bass unfortunately it had way to much curry and the sauce was more liquid than it should have been. My caesar salad was adequate. My wife's pear salad and roasted veggies was good. My Manhattan was excellent. Very hard to find your way around and back to the hilton so don't stay there if you want food.

What a spectacular view and service. The only disappointing comment I would have to make is that tri-tip option was not available. When my wife and I had arrived they had run out. Overall it was amazing definitely coming here again.

Food was excellent, and so was the service (and of course, the view)! But, the restaurant itself is getting a bit tired, and... "meh". Still, a great place to go since it's a good value - and the food is so well prepared.

Superb. From the moment we sat down to the serving of the meal then the check, our dining experience was exceptional.
Food was terrific, our personal fire pit kept us warm and the service was 5 star.

I have enthusiastically recommended the Grill at Torrey Pines to all of my friends.

Great experience!

The location is wonderful and the hamburgers are great. However the opening comment is you only have 90 minutes to dine which I find offensive. No other restaurant has ever said that to me.

The setting is beautiful, and so were the decorations. The evening was cool, so we were disappointed when they wheeled the portable heater that was close to us, to a private party on the single deck next to the building.
All meals were good except for the biscuits and gravy. Our server was very friendly. Would consider going again in different weather.

This is a great place to grab a bite for lunch. I love their burger and typically get that every time I am in Torrey Pines. The atmosphere is great. Reservations are always treated with respect and you are seated within +/- 5 minutes.

Wonderful food- great ambiance- lousy inattentive waiter- Danny. Sorry kid, but you ingnored us- made us wait 30 minutes for our bottle of Veuve Cliquot, and then did not get our dinner to the table until 1.5 hrs after we were seated...Gave us a 1.5 hour window for seating and then did not even serve the dinner until 1.5 hours after we were eated- and we made the reservation on Open Table....and ordered the champagne as we sat down...Anniversary dinner- we got married there at the NORth course 7th tee-and stayed at the Lodge for our honey moon- Oh WEll- we will be back next eyar- hopefully Danny will have moved on...

We dined at the Grill at the Lodge at Torrey Pines at 4:30 in the afternoon to enjoy a spectacular view and sunset. We were not disappointed. Seated at a table overlooking the course and ocean was simply amazing. The servers and everyone was very respectful around social distancing and safety.

This is a great spot to enjoy a casual outdoor special experience.
