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.

Great service. Great views. Delicious food. I would highly recommend.
Veranda never disappoints with their culinary fulfilling selections! 1st time back in the midst of this craziness. Always elegant surroundings likely operating with a minimal, yet courteous service staff. Miss the entertainment, hopefully not waiting too long for their return, especially as we head into summer. Prices increased at least 25% in the 2 month downtime. Still a top 5 favorite! We’ll be back for sure!
We had a great lunch out on the Veranda patio. Lots of space between the tables for social distancing and excellent service.
The special occasion was playing golf and enjoying wine and dining on the patio at Veranda......again, finally!! The view of the 18th hole, with the creek, lake and fountain water feature, is always beautiful, especially on such a clear early evening.
All staff was especially attentive, cheerful and mindful of the extra sanitary requirements without affecting the dining experience. The new wine selection is diverse and excellent. The filet was especially well-prepared, buttery and very tender at medium rate. The trumpet mushrooms and grilled leeks were complemented by the elegant red wine reduction. Of course, the excellent zinfandel wine choice supplemented the meal perfectly.
Thank you, Rancho Bernardo Inn and the Veranda Fireside staff, for a very enjoyable time Friday evening!!
I took a friend there for her birthday luncheon.
The food was delicious our waitress was nice and we had a very nice time
The Rancho Bernardo Inn prepared employees thoroughly for the opening of the Veranda restaurant. Excellent food: we shared brussel sprouts and had individual orders of blackened swordfish sandwich and cavatelli with salmon. Ryan, our server, made sure every need was met.
Ordered a hamburger was just ok. Service was ok. Was a little disappointed in the seating arrangement. Even though a lot of room outdoors, we were seated close to side by side tables with each table seating 6 customers and our table only had two.... it was to close for comfort and when we brought that to their attention, they just shrugged their shoulders.
Their sword fish sandwich was outstanding! Great side salad. The view is amazing and Rebecca was a fantastic Server!
After this horrible quarantine, we went to support this restaurant and felt 100% safe the entire time. Staff was friendly and the food was top notch.
Remember, you need a mask upon entering and if you get up from your table.
Nicole greeted me immediately and was very nice and we sat immediately at a nice table by the fireplace (not turned on, but was requested).
Ryan was our server and all his recommendations were excellent from Wine to Entrees. I was disappointed that they closed at 8pm as reservations were at 7pm; we left around 9:00pm.
Was just so great to enjoy going out to a nice restaurant.
Server was not properly trained to be a server at such a nice place. Very inexperienced. Food was good but $15.00 for a shrimp cocktail that had only 3, yes 3, shrimps.
Server didn't inform me of a split plate charge either. So I deducted that charge from his gratuity.
Everything was perfect. We were seated too close to the speakers and the music
was a bit loud for us. I am sure it was fine for everyone on the patio.
Outstanding in every way.
Our appetizers never came out...after entrée arrived and I mentioned they missed the entrees, they brought out one app afterwards...at no cost of course.
Lovely views of the golf course. Wonderful food. Excellent service.
Beautiful location great food!
You can't beat the beautiful views from the outside patio. They're good from almost every table but "the edge" is the best.
Paper menus and no real place settings until they bring your food. The bar is open to diners and all the servers and ladies at the check in stand we delightful!
Great being back! The food was great! Really like the new wings with the Buffalo sauce. Our server Paul was great as always.
The food was delicious. I highly recommend the salmon entre. Tables were appropriately spaced, hostess & serves wore masks as did customers till they reached their tables. Diners asked to wear masks whenever they left table. Service was great & the sunset & views of the golf course & mountains were gorgeous.
The Veranda team opened up the right way with all the proper protocols in place to make anybody feel safe and comfortable. Paul was my server and is one of the best in the business. Even though the menu is limited that should not discourage anyone from enjoying the evening. It seemed as if they took their best dishes and made them even better with a different combination of sauces and sides. The Atlantic salmon is a must have! The apples and asparagus with the salmon was brilliant!
Excellent service and food. Music was a bit loud, but not an interference.
Delicious food, fast service, and beautiful setting and views. We’ll definitely be back!
Relaxing atmosphere, beautiful view. The Veranda Fireside Restaurant never disappoints. We ordered the California Cobb salad and Heirloom Beet salad. Both were bright, fresh and delicious. A lovely stroll through the gardens was wonderful. Thank you to Jorge for excellent service. Already looking forward to my next visit.
It’s a lovely place and a wonderful setting
Cassandra (manager/hostess) was excellent. Went above and beyond getting us the perfect table and allowing us to order salads earlier than policy.
Emily (server) was outstanding as well. Great service and very friendly.
We sat inside so when the door kept opening, we got a gust of wind which was not comfortable. It would be nice if they could have people enter the side door instead of the main door. The food was very good.
Disappointed in the food we had at dinner the night before it was horrible. My husbands steak tasted like liver it was rancid we had guests taste it also I had to spit my bite out. The mashed potatoes thin no flavor seems like what I imagine how boxed mashed potatoes must taste like. Salmon under cooked I had to send it back came back still under-cooked. Fire the chef would never recommend nor go back. This restaurant failed us twice during out stay. Breakfast was mediocre at best. Oatmeal watery , eggs runny, everything just off and I can't believe the coffee how can you screw up coffee??
Very nice ambience, delicious food and excellent service! I would definitely go back again
Really don’t like the new menu. All 4 of us had same sentiments.
Great outdoor eating in San Diego
A fantastic venue anytime of the year. Our visit was in Feb and we sat comfortably under heat lamps and blankets that were provided. Love the blankets- very Scandinavian. The sunset and atmosphere was delightful. The service was great and food/wine as well.
I brought my sister here for lunch. She needs ADA friendly locations and The RB Inn and Veranda exceeded my expectations. Excellent service from the valet to the servers. Food is very good and the prices reasonable. Great views on the patio overlooking the golf course.
It was a great experience.
A wonderful place to have lunch, great food with nice views of the golf course.
Birthday and was a nice experience
Food was spectacular, and the service was exceptional. Was a cold night but the outdoor heaters made it a non-issue. Will return.
Valentine’s Day treat!
Emily was a fantastic server with help from Brandon. She made great recommendations, checked in on us, took pictures, etc! Ambience was lovely outside on patio with sunset off golf course and overall food was fabulous from the lamb meatballs to the flatbread pizza and swordfish sandwich to the whiskey fruity cocktail. It was a perfect date night!! Only thing we had was a wait for our table which was not long since gratefully we had reservations!!
Beautiful view and excellent food! Had the filet Mignon and beet salad and flat bread with prosciutto! Very delicious!
The service was excellent and the food was delicious.
it was the perfect setting for our purposes. Our server was gracious without "rushing" our time yet was attentive enough to see if we needed anything.
We spent three hours!!! Sorry if we overstayed but it was delightful.
