Waited 30 minutes after table was cleared for a check. Then another 20 for the server to collect it, process the payment and return the card. It took nearly an hour after the meal was concluded to actually leave. For a meal that costs as much as this, it’s kinda unacceptable.

Our second time here. Great environment/view. Food average. The worst service we’ve ever had in SD. I’ve been to so many different restaurants all over town, but this is one of the worst services. The server simply disappeared throughout our meal. We had to find her to order our food. Then it took us more than 15 mins to find her to get our check. Last time when we dined here, we added an item but it never arrived (after half an hour)... this time just simply extremely poor service.

If you want a pleasant dining experience, don’t come here.

Ambience and food were great. The amount of time for the food to come out was much longer than expected. At one time we were told our meals were being played but it took another half hour.

Maybe they were just busy. The manager apologized and took off the appetizer which was appreciated especially with the wait time.

Because of that I give the restaurant the benefit of the doubt and would go back again.

Went to Veranda for birthday celebration with friends. Our food was delicious and everyone’s arrived at the same time. The servers were so attentive, quickly moving the umbrellas so we were never in the sun. Live music on the patio while we were there and it really added to the celebration. I would recommend an evening on the Veranda patio to anyone!

This is a perfectly lovely place to dine! I brought my daughter here to celebrate her birthday. My pokey bowl was delicious and my daughters risotto was a bit bland but still OK. The service was great! And the ambience is always superb.

Bad service and ignored by waitstaff. Never a refill on water or ice tea. This was my friend’s first time at your Inn and I know we will never go back. I used to be a regular and always enjoyed time with my family. The only nice thing about dining with you was time spent with a good friend. Left very unhappy!!!

Lovely as usual, one of our favorite places to dine. While making the reservation thru open table I indicated we were celebrating a birthday and requested a table with a good view. I still didn’t expect the greeting and seating we received. The hostess immediately asked who’s birthday and promptly wished my husband a happy birthday. After being seated at a table with the requested perfect view our waitress also inquired who’s BD. And again wished a happy BD. I don’t care if it is breakfast, lunch or dinner, we love coming here. It truly is the whole package, service, food and ambiance.

We were told that the Brunch items were closing out at 12, which we were disappointed since their website says brunch is from 11:30-3. It would be nice if the menu on Sundays was a bit more variety. Felt limited.

We had the pizza and I would have preferred a thinner crust. I like being able to sit outside and enjoy the view during the nice weather. Will try some of the weekly music events and daily specials with friends.

My husband and I were very impressed with this romantic setting for our first evening at the Rancho Bernardo Inn. Our waitresses Vicki and Lauren were very attentive and helpful with dishes that we loved. The sun setting here is well worth the experience. We wish we could spend additional time here.

Recently several friends celebrated a special birthday lunch. We chose 3 of the appetizers to share. Our waiter suggested those appetizers easier to split. The selections of short ribs quesadillas, shrimp bruschetta and pear arugula salad were delicious & enjoyed by all. Our waiter (Alejandro) attentive as needed. He brought a complimentary crème brulee with candle & stemmed Gerber Daisy. The only negative was the noise as sometimes hard to hear one another. It was a lovely lunch & time together.

This is a very nice restaurant and the service was great. I wish they have healthier food options and more vegetarian/vegan dishes. Their food tastes good but some sauces are too heavy.

Lovely outdoor patio dining with a view of the 18th hole overlooking the golf course, with music and the food was delicious. We started with the lamb chops and then we enjoyed the sea scallops. With happy hour adult beverages. Was delightful.

A bit disappointed in price and quality. $35 "center cut" ribeye was nothing more than what we usually buy at Vons. The appetizer braised short rib stuffed potato skins were totally bland. Such a shame cause the outdoor ambiance is really nice. Guess you're paying for the view cause the food sure wasnt worth the price.

Service was excellent and food was delicious. I recommend the breakfast buffet, huge made to order omelettes and delicious fresh baked pastries. The little muffins are to die for.
It was raining that morning but the view of the mountains and golf course were still breath taking.

The Veranda was an amazing experience. Even though it was raining they automatically moved our reservation indoors. It was mine and my husbands anniversary so our waitress Vicky made sure we had a very special experience. She even comped us dessert! We cannot wait to come back on our next weekend getaway.
