Our waiter Mano could work in the finest restaurant in the country. He was friendly and knew serving rules.
The food is top shelf and variety would please all diets; the prices are a little $$ to be expected these days. The tables are roomy and the space in between each felt safe. The air flow was very good and they do have heaters.
The only negative was occasional very loud airplanes that made diners pause.
Would return to try many of the items and enjoy the ambiance.

Server was very friendly and helpful. Felt we waited too long (10 minutes) for our wine and cocktail. We felt a little rushed because the appetizer, salad, and main course were all served at close to the same time. Food was very well prepared and tasty though!

Our reservations were for outside seating. When we were seated the noise being created by an air pressure driven hammer driving metal posts into the ground around the putting green was so loud that we were forced to move inside. It seems that preparations for the golf tournament should have been scheduled outside the lunch hour.

Thank you for your feedback Lyn. We are sorry to hear that your meal was disrupted by the equipment used in preparation for the upcoming golf tournament. Please know that this is an uncommon occurrence, and one that we, unfortunately, cannot regulate as Torrey Pines is a municipal golf course. We appreciate you dining with us and hope that you come back to a more peaceful dining experience.

The Grill at the Torrey Pines Lodge has been our choice of dining experiences for special occasions for several years. We don’t mind being charged above average prices because whatever we are celebrating warrants the cost. That said, our recent experience has changed our opinions. The food and service were sub-par to say the least. When you pay $200 for lunch for 6 (with no cocktails, appetizer or desserts) I think it is unreasonable to expect the food to be served hot and fresh and not to have every man at the table be addressed as “boss”. Suffice it to say in the future we’ll be looking for someplace else to do our celebrating.

The Grill was pleasant and cozy for New Year's Eve 2021 (and also extremely reasonable cost-wise). The prix fixe meal had great choices, and my chosen Seared Ahi Tuna in a celery root sauce with tarragon was one of the best ahi dishes I ever have had. Service was very solicitous and enjoyable.

Server was excellent. First course shrimp, crab and avocado cocktail was okay. Bread had clearly been sliced and left sitting out for a long time. Old fashioned cocktail was classic and great. Issue is repeatedly the main course. They have one steak on the menu and their definition of medium well results in still bloody, red juices. I can't believe it.

The location and the views of the golf course are pretty. The food is good, but it doesn’t have that “OMG” effect, when you feel like reaching climax…Anyways; the waitress was super nice and attentive. I went for breakfast and had omelette with salmon, which tasted very good. The French toast was good as well. I think the place is ideal if you’re on a date and want to go something different. But if you want to eat delicious food without spending much money, I would go somewhere else.

Restaurant is nice. Appetizer was good. Server did not really understand menu, which seemed odd. Chicken was underdone and tasted metallic. Mentioned to server and received "sorry about that" and nothing more. I understand that good restaurant help may be hard to find, but this seems to be a larger problem.
