The Grill at The Lodge at Torrey Pines Ratings and Reviews
We ate lunch and dinner. The lunch was much better. The food was hit or miss, and while the majority of the waitstaff (host and busman in particular) were very good, there was a mix up that left us sitting for nearly 30-minutes before we were waited on. The waitress seemed completely disinterested in serving our table, even after leaving us waiting.
Overall good, not great, experience. Very good service. Very good venue that would be even better during the day when you can see the course. Food for most was really good but tri-tip was really undercooked. Perhaps order a temperature higher than you’d expect. I ordered medium rare and most of it was very rare. Starters all very good.
Lunch at The Grill: Nice ambience and a way-below-average dining experience. Chewy dry chicken made my $16 "Rotisserie Chicken Sandwich" practically uneatable. My wife's fish tacos were subpar. Slow service and a missing-in-action waitress didn't help. Two of our group of five were served the wrong items. I'm a local but I won't be back.
I had forgotten about this hidden gem. We enjoyed our dining experience immensely. Desiree our server was attentive and intuitive about our group who spent more time talking than ordering or eating. She was patient and professional. Hats off to you, Desiree.
Amy our server was awesome. The swordfish I had was dry over salted, very over salted! The seasonal vegetables not edible. Other guests had short ribs were were very good but portion small. The tri tip was smothered in gravy, masked the taste of steak. Ask for it on side! Same seasonal vegetables and comments. The setting awesome. I would chock it up to bad night for kitchen. Someone not paying attention.
The mark of an outstanding restaurant is repeatability. A month ago we had a great meal, with very good service. This time, the previously fabulous corned beef hash, was dried out and tough and the poached eggs over cooked: too much time under the heat lamps. That fits with our server being AWOL much of the time. It’s always risky to return to a restaurant hoping to have a repeat of a a great experience. Unfortunately, that proved to be all too true this time. We’ll be back again hoping this past experience was an aberration and that fabulousness awaits our next visit.
The Grill is outdoors and it’s food is really quite imaginative and staff very pleasant. But the whole thing was spoilt by lack of any view and for the appalling noise of the central cooling system, which we were told is always present there. It was ridiculously noisy and more or less killed the evening.
As usual the ambiance at TP Grill is breathtaking. Try to get there for the sunset.
Unfortunately, the extremely long wait for service is such a disappointment. From the moment you sit down until your drinks arrive, to order, to entree arriving, to the check. Plan on having a great deal of patience because this never seems to change.
The dinner menu also seems to need an update. They do accommodate ordering entrees from the lunch menu. So, take a peek at this menu on line to see if there might be something more interesting.
The prices for a glass of wine are costly. Guess your paying for the view.
The waitress was very kind even though she was rushed. As she approached our table she thanked us for waiting and said she "would take care of us". From past experience this usually means a free drink, dessert or perhaps it might be reflected in the bill. Never were offered any of these.
We had a large group (12) and the only negative was not being able to separate the check when every restaurant we had gone to for a week had no problem. Charging an automatic 20% gratuity and not be willing to separate the check didn't set well with any of us! We have a large golfing group that travels together for a week or so a couple times a year and have never had a problem....
This,place was recommended by our neighbor and we are so greatful he did. We had a fabilous table with view of the Gulf cours. Although I think every table has it. Incredible portions and very delicious.,I had the Ruben sandwich and my husband had the salad with seared Ahi Tuna.
We just loved the outdoor atmosphere with comfortable seating. Servos was excuisit.
We will be back
Sat outside, as it was a beautiful San Diego Chamber of Commerce day. Our lunch table was still occupied when we arrived, so we got a drink at the bar and watched the folks putt. Prime table overlooking the tee with the ocean as backdrop.. great wait staff; friendly, helpful, appeared when you needed her. Food arrived quickly.. hamburger cooked to perfection for one; Rueben another; rotisserie chicken sandwich for me, and a sloppy joe for my girl. Superb lunch with friends at a great location.
