Veranda Fireside Lounge & Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
This is a place where you want to sit outside on the patio. It was raining the night we were there, so patio was closed.
It was miserable sitting inside.
The place was noisy. We were seated right next the kitchen. Constant activity, impossible to relax. Meals were cold and under cooked.
Just awful that night.
i've been going to this restaurant for many years. seems to have a management issue now in that we waited 15 minutes for a server while there were only a handful of tables with diners and numerous employees standing around. finally i got up and asked if there was a server for our table and we eventually got one, although he was not very attentive during our visit.
i do like the venue and the food and perhaps the problem was the manager that night.
Seated immediately and ready to order within five minutes , we left after 25 minutes, bus staff said they would get "her" to help us, one blond-haired (pony tail tied to the side) waitress walked past us multiple times, never took order, restaurant nearly empty: only three other parties in restaurant at the time, never will return. We were there for special New Year's dinner.
As usual outstanding service and ambiance. Christmas Eve early dinner outside on the patio with lovely views. This restaurant is one of our favorites and never disappoints. Had the prime rib which was on the special Christmas menu and it was delicious. We always enjoy dining here at the Veranda.
Overall a “meh” experience. We made the mistake of sitting inside. Would have liked to see our waitress a bit more. Needed stuff like silverware, water, wine, our check.
Disappointed with the food. A baked baked potato is hardly a masterpiece. No toppings. No sauces for the chicken.
Won’t be going back.
The ease of using open table makes this experience even better.
To be able to walk into a crowded restaurant and have your table waiting for you is 1st class. I appreciate the professionalism the staff have and it's carried out throughout the meal. The menu is just a little edgy which allows me to try something a little different
Eating outside with such a spectacular view brings the whole experience to the next level.
I took some business clients here for an authentic California experience. I was a little concerned since it's November and the evenings can be chilly. No worries, as they have plenty of patio heaters which did a fine job of keeping us all comfortable. The outdoor seating, ambiance of the fire places and light live music, as well as an exceptional meal, got me a lot of points with my guests! The wine list was great and the prices were reasonable. We'll definitely use this as a venue for future business events, and I've already told my wife and some of our friends this will have to be a "date night" spot!
We were invited to eat at The Veranda a few weeks ago with our realtors. We liked the food, and we loved the view from our patio seats. It was quiet and very conducive to conversation. Even with the live music in the background, we could hear each other speak. The food was unique and tasty. We liked it so much that we decided to bring out of town friends to the restaurant. They enjoyed the evening and said it was a very good choice. None of us had alcohol that night because we were busy the next day, but it was great to be there for a good meal in a great atmosphere. We also really liked our waiter who was very good at taking care of us, and we specifically asked for him the second time we visited.
We had Chris Stone as our waiter and the attention to detail on his part was wonderful. We never went without drinks or bread and tapenade. Our food was served promptly and served hot. Although we only ordered happy hour, we were still treated with utmost care and attention. We send all of our out of town client to Veranda and when they get Chris Stone as their waiter, we ALWAYS get a great report back. Thanks Veranda
We waited for a hostess for 10 minutes and there were people in front of us, so it took another 10 minutes. After 20 minutes we were seated and was not approached by anyone for another 10 minutes. Finally a waiter came by and apologized for the delay and said he would get to us shortly. Five minutes later we placed an order for food, salads only. We skipped a drink because of the possible delay. The salad came within 15 minutes. The bill came fast, after we declined dessert. The waiter checked on us twice within 5 minutes to see if we paid the bill. It was very loud, but not crowded. I will be waiting along time before I try going here again. My friend had not been there for a year or so and she said she would not come back. I must say I was very disappointed.
The temperature was too hot for comfortable outdoor seating so we opted for the comfort of indoor ac. There were no free "table nibbles" unless you ordered something. Too bad since we waited awhile for lunch. The food was good but disappointedly, nothing new is ever on the menu. It'll be awhile before we go back to order the same old thing.
This was my first time in San Diego and I knew I had to make it worth it. I searched for about 3 days to figure out where I could go to dinner. This particular restaurant kept popping up. I did my research through several different websites and most of their reviews were amazing. I had an event earlier in the day, and they were able to accommodate my late reservations. I was also late and they were still so kind about it! The hostess was amazing!!! She was so nice and welcoming. The entire place is gorgeous and the food is amazing. My boyfriend loved the Surf N' Turf. I loved the Salmon! What I loved the most was the teamwork. Our waiter plus the other servers all helped each other out to ensure we were fine.
Definitely, can't wait to go back!
