Veranda Fireside Lounge & Restaurant
Inspired by the olive trees, gardens and villas that overlook our 18 hole golf course, making The" Veranda" a place one simply has to experience.
Fresh and modern, Veranda's new menu features California contemporary cuisine. Each dish is carefully constructed by a team of chefs using locally-sourced ingredients and freshly grown herbs from our own garden.
Veranda is the perfect place to meet and enjoy a snack, meal or libation (try our signature bread and Tapenade.....we'll give you the recipe), dine under the stars or gather around the fire with a cocktail or local craft beer . Come and enjoy live entertainment, featuring local artists. You're sure to have an experience to savor.
lovely casual setting. We had good service and they were very accomodating. The only suggestion I can make is to improve the salad dressings. They tasted like they were out of a bottle and not very good. I would expect homemade dressings.
The food was good, however, the room was very cold. The waiter brought over a blanket for one of my friends.
Pleasant outdoor option in very tranquil setting! While at lunch Red Tail Hawk rested on fence on the patio separated from the restaurant by 75-100ft. Allows one to forget issues of the day.
Very disappointing in terms of value. Lunch salad selection was $15 without any protein, but to add shrimp or salmon it was an additional $12, which is absurd. Went for the Restaurant Week specials instead. Cup of lobster bisque was excellent and generous, but the squash salad was nothing but greens with a few pieces of squash and grapefruit. No bread was offered, which would have helped. The golf course location and nice view does not justify the poor value regarding the salads.
Very nice view of the golf course and friendly staff that addresses you by your last name, but not sure if it was because of Open table reservation. Went for SD restaurant week and had the 2 course lunch. The Lobster bisque was flavorful, but would have been nice with a few little pieces of lobster in it. The prosciutto wrapped chicken, was a bit dry, but flavorful. Would suggest adding some pine nuts in the center to give a little crunch with the cheese. Wine selection by the glass was good, but a bit high priced. Would be good for business lunch or just unwinding.
First time at Veranda. The restaurant is a little more causal then the other restaurant at the Rancho Bernardo Inn. The meals were very good. Service was great, fast and accurate. We would go back again.
Service was subpar. After being seated and ordering our champagne, we had to call over the waiter to place our order after a 20 min. wait. After getting our order our waiter didn’t come back and check on us but one time and we were ther over an hour. Didn’t ask if wanted dessert.
The food was very nice, the pizza even better. However occasionally we were waiting on a server to come back to our table, even though it wasn’t busy. Great food though and nice place overall
Wednesday night/prime rib night was the choice for a surprize birthday dinner. The meat was very good and cooked to our specific likeness. Presentation on a pile of mash potatoes and 2 very small carrot sticks was unimpressive. The salmon/mashed potatoes presented to one adult was visually and tastefully unacceptable. The salmon was gray and tasted "outdated".. inedible. It was returned for a prime rib substitute. Frankly, I and my family were amazed this salmon dish got past inspection (visual and taste) from the kitchen. Salads and dessert were outstanding. Service by Vickie was above outstanding. She was gracious, fun and accomodating.
This was my first experience indoors. Previously I have had lovely lunches on the outdoor patio.
Happy New Year!
Cold night lots of heaters,so few with gas or functioning! Move inside to dealing roar of people sitting right next to each other screaming as part of normal conversation, I guess?
Beautiful view of golf course. Loved the fire pit.
Everything was perfect. Thank you for all you guys did to make the event and business meeting perfect
The server was very rude and condescending. When I asked for a manager she argued with me. The wait time is very long to get seated even with a reservation. They didn’t even acknowledge us for 20 minutes and did not apologize. Food is great atmosphere is great but the service is horrible.
The food was excellent! I don't eat red meat usually and I had ribeye and it was so good.
A favorite place for lunch on a beautiful day! Food is delicious.
Excellent food and service. Outdoor seating exceptional for lunch especially!
This was the perfect place to have a friend’s birthday lunch. Everyone found something they really liked on the menu. Sitting outside on a cool sunny day was blissful. Our server was attentive & knowledgeable. The birthday dessert they presented to my friend was outstanding.
We met with friends we haven't seen in a year. Vicky was our server, and she is brilliant! Great service and great attitude. She made our time there even better.
Awesome fairway views and great brunch!
The ambiance is always great at the Veranda Fireside Restaurant. It was a bit cool to sit outside the day we were there, but the inside tables are also nice. We love to go here with friends for a quiet lunch and good conversation. The service is excellent and the food is great.
Was expecting quality Mediterranean food at the dinner hour. The menu selection consisted of fish n chips, and .mostly sandwich type food. I wanted some type of fillet mignon or other beef but there was literally none on the menu. I chose grilled salmon which came in a soup bowl with over salted broth and a few sprigs of over cooked mini carrots and snap peas. It was terrible. My husband got a sandwich. The meal was over $90.00 Very disappointed. So t go back
Best not to eat here if you need allergy accommodations. They aren’t able to do that. Staff was nice but overwhelmed. They tried their best for service recovery but I’m still going to bed hungry....
Food pricey for what you get...
Wine list ridiculously high.
Band was way too loud for dinnertime (6 pm)
OK or lunch, patio is great.
But food is so-so and priced
Service is poor and terrible the waitress takes a very long time to see how you doing. Meal portion is very small. I order the salmon but it felt like an appetizer. My wife ask for A1 sauce for her ribeye steak the waitress brought in a empty bottle. It was my wife birthday and they bring in a frozen dry cupcake with a frozen chocolate cover strawberry. Terrible service
Nice outdoor patio. Great place to go for lunch. Very peaceful location. Service and food are good too.
I took a date here and it was great experience. The atmosphere was romantic the table outside spaced far enough apart for privacy. They bring out heaters if you need at your table. The service was great and so was the food. They also had live music from 2 talented musicians. All in all it was a great experience.
All tables at the Veranda are great - good view of the golf course's 18th-hole. The menu is varied and the items are excellent. It's my occasion restaurant.
It was an awesome experience at this place.
Emily . D who was our waitress made the experience all the more special.
She was very polite and attentive to our needs.
Great! Staff was friendly and helpful and the short rib quesadilla was really good!
An excellent time. Great food and service. Always enjoy the Veranda patio area!
Peyton was very quick to greet and seat us. Lovely to talk to and made us feel very welcomed. I went to lunch with a colleague for a quick lunch and we ended up staying and chatting for almost 2 hours because it was so relaxing out on the veranda. Great service and food too!
This is a great place for a casual but very good dinner. We sat outdoors on the patio and it was wonderful. Heaters in close proximity to every table. WE ahd the scallops and steak entrees and both were very well prepared. Will definitely come back to Rancho Bernardo Inn and will dine here again as well.
After living in San Diego for many years, this was my first time at the Veranda Restaurant. What a lovely experience with a friend. I would highly recommend the restaurant for the location, delicious food and attentive staff.
We had Rebecca as a server and she was outstanding! Attentive, efficient and allowed us plenty of time to enjoy our lunch and conversation. Beautiful day, enjoyable setting, great valet parking! Thank you!
The best part of this restaurant is the ambience. The weather was great and when it got chilly in the evening they turned on the patio heaters. The View was relaxing and the sunset beautiful. The music was just the right level to be able to have a nice conversation. Very soothing and romantic. The food was good and yet a bit overpriced. The portions are not overly large, which is good if you order an hors d'oeuvres and dessert and yet if you don't , you may be a little disappointed on how much you paid for it. About I would definitely recommend it for a special occasion. If you want bread with your meal, ask for it they won't be bringing it to you unless you do.
The food was overpriced! The service was poor...out waitress was friendly but very slow in returning to the table throughout our entire meal!
The filet mignon was cold and our salmon was very over cooked!!!
We will NOT be returning for a meal!
It was a belated bday lunch for one of my friends and we both enjoyed the french dip. Service was ok. It was a gorgeous day and we sat outside so you don't notice much of anything else.
Very nice outdoor dining with great personal service from our host
Great dinner for our anniversary. The view is beautiful, the food really good and the service we had from Vicky was perfect! I would definitely recommend this place.
