Food was excellent. Service was efficient and we did not have a long wait for our food. It was a bit difficult to find the restaurant at the lodge as it is not clearly marked. We arrived 15 minutes before our reservation, but were seated immediately.

One of the guest did not get his food for 15 mins due to a confusion in the kitchen and everyone had to wait until the missing dish arrived to enjoy their food. We did not receive an explanation or apology, and in general the food was not great. Maybe it was a busy night, because we had better experiences in the past.

Not the restaurants fault, but three people on the property (including the hostess) gave us different directions to find the restaurant. These were terrible and all completely different which was confusing. Took 20 min to find it. The noise was super super loud. Hard to focus on our table. Food was very average and very overpriced. $22 for a hamburger that takes similar to shake shack isn’t great. Won’t go back.

We picked this place to celebrate my husbands birthday. Unfortunately there was a special event on that night at the restaurant which we were not notified. Due to the event, all the roads were closed (even the entrance of the facility) We spent almost half an hour walking around the barriers trying to find an entrance to get into the restaurant. It was also noisy, crowded which was not what we were planning for our romantic dinner. There was a live music but because of the noise we could not even hear the music. One note: if you have a very big special event, please either do not open the place for the public or just put a note so that people know what to expect.

The food was okay but the service was not; the drugstore hamburger was tasty but the fries that came with it were pale and not crispy, perhaps they needed more time in the fryer. They totally forgot our shared appetizer and when they brought our main courses we had to ask them to cancel the appetizer they forgot to bring. It was not crowded in the Grill, but we had to look for and flag down a waiter or waitress when we needed something...not at all attentive.

Well, well, well...we expected so much more as we had been to the Lodge before. We decided to try the 3-course dinner which they put together for New Year’s. Salad (endives) was okay but lacked a sophisticated dressing. The main course (steak) was undercooked (not medium as we requested) and so so. The potato was the real shocker. The worst potato side dish I ever had. I felt like sinking my teeth into a raw potato. The dessert was top notch (hazelnut crème brûlée). The wine (CA Cabernet) was recommended to us by the sommelier and was good; nonetheless, it reminded me how good the Italian wines are these days compared to California. The Lodge only offers CA wines on its wine list. So all in all, certainly below our expectations. We didn’t feel we got our money’s worth.

I really like the Lodge. Beautiful scenery, the food is very good, kind staff, and laid back atmosphere. I recommend this place for an evening beer by Torrey Pines golf, for a long weekend lunch, or a nice sit down dinner. My only dislike is that many times I get a mix of intrusive service (staff fill water cups every 10 seconds) with neglect (it takes forever to get your food). If this aspect was improved I'd rank it even higher.
