    We were seated on the Veranda but wouldn't you know it started to rain. Moved to the inside and had one of the best meals we have had in a long time. Braised short ribs were fantastic. The bread pudding and the cheesecake smore's were amazing. Will be back soon!

    We were celebrating Valentine’s Day and my birthday. The restaurant notified us ahead of time that they were having technical difficulties and the menu would be limited. We appreciated the heads up and went ahead with the reservation. We enjoyed all aspects of the restaurant .. food, service, open air patio. They even noted that it was my birthday. We will be back.

    Beautiful place for dinner outside. Unfortunately two of us ordered pasta and it was so over cooked it was soft and pasty tasting. They did credit us for one meal as I returned mine as inedible. We have been here many times and this was just an off night.

    Great service and friendly staff. Enjoyed the champagne brunch for my daughter’s 21st birthday. The view was amazing and they promptly raised and rearranged an umbrella to give us some shade. The food was excellent too! They brought her a very lovely complimentary cupcake with caramel & chocolate sauces and fresh berries for her birthday. We love this place!

    We had a delightful lunch today at your restaurant. The hostess was friendly and wished me a happy birthday as soon as we arrived. The Brussel sprouts with whipped goat cheese was an amazing appetizer. Our whole party loved their meals. I had the salmon salad, the fish was prepared perfectly, the berries were bright and juicy. My husband had the steak sandwich, bread was grilled to perfection as was the steak, the fries on his plate and our friends were truly amazing. The chicken sandwich was tender and delicious. The Buddha Bowl had perfectly ripe persimmon pieces that were a real treat. Our server then brought 4 spoons and an incredible chocolate dessert to share. What an unexpected delight! Thank you, we’ll be back.

    Great Christmas dinner! The RB Inn Veranda is going to our new Holiday family dinner destination. Delicious food, cocktails and service! The Veranda “Miracle Bar” experience was super fun and very retro with the Santa Mugs for the Hot Buttered Rum for our after dinner drinks.

    The food was delicious we started with the baked goat cheese. Great, and we used it on the grilled brocolini. Which was also great. Lamb lollipops for me that came with a collard green and leek side.my friend had the sea bass, which was moist and tender, and came with a butternut squash puree. I was surprised at the quality. 4 glasses of wine, two sides and two full dinners for 102 dollars made the value

    This is one of my go to favorites and it’s a Christmas morning tradition. My parents arrived from Chicago, to visit, on Christmas morning. We headed straight to Veranda for our 10:15am reservation. It was odd. There was no one at the outdoor or indoor host stands. We waited for about 20 minutes to get a host to seat us. They were very nice and we understood it’s Christmas. It was bizarre because we were seated and requested to be in the sun with a heat lamp! They accommodated and it was lovely. Suddenly, a table was seated next to us and requested an umbrella and a heat lamp. They took the heat lamp that I requested and moved it to the other side of the other table, so they had sole access to it. Then, they opened up the umbrella, for that table, putting us in the shade and having taken our heat lamp. I don’t understand why they didn’t open the umbrella on the other side for them and why they couldn’t bring them a different heat lamp instead of taking the one I had requested. Our server showed care and tried to remedy the situation by bringing another heat lamp but couldn’t put it back where we had it because they had now opened up an umbrella. The situation was really just “off”. Food was great and our server was lovely. It was also wierd that we couldn’t order the $25 dollar bubbly bottle that they always offer, because it wasn’t “12pm”! It was a holiday and a toast would have been lovely, even at 1045am.

    The menu strives to offer variety - but each dish seems to try a bit too much. The crab sandwich I had tasted a bit fishy, had way too many arugula leaves, and the fries were cold. One of my guests had to ask for BBQ sauce to bring some flavor to his burger. The staff was great, the ambiance was great, the food and the prices not so much.

    Really surprised and disappointed. Food was priced high, but the quality was catering level. Rigatoni was overcooked, macaroni just tasted like butter and cream, bread was barely warmed and tasted fresh out of a grocery store bag, and the cocktails were heavy sugar/batch tasting.

    Service was great, however food was overpriced and just ok. Ordered from the brunch menu, table had the cinnamon roll, steak salad, flatbread, and lobster Mac n cheese. Expected the cinnamon roll to be huge for $19 but it was standard size. Lobster Mac n cheese wasn’t great, flat bread was ok, steak salad was the best thing we ordered and probably the only thing I would order again if I go back. Patio is spacious with a nice view of the golf course, inside of the restaurant and hotel need updating.

    My wife and I met a couple very good friends here yesterday for brunch. It was a lovely San Diego winter day and everything was quite good. From the excellent variety of food choices, to the view over the 18th green, to the service, there were no complaints. And afterward, we took a stroll through the common areas to enjoy even more decoration including several more Christmas trees. A very nice way to spend a couple hours on a Sunday afternoon!
