We celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary with another couple and were seated at sunset. The views over Torrey Pines golf course are amazing. All four meals were very good. The duck entree and creme brulee desert were amazing. Great wine selection. This is fine dining for those not on a budget but well worth a visit. Dress is resort casual... More

We were staying at The Lodge, so decided A.R Valentien was a must for dinner; it was a good decision. We had eaten at The Grill, but wanted something a bit more formal/upscale. The food and service were excellent. A great place to celebrate our anniversary!!

We celebrated our anniversary here, and had a fine dining experience. Our server was attentive, the food was exquisite, and the setting refined. We could have made a meal out of the appetizer choices, but opted to include the entrees instead. We did have the smoked trout, and stuffed squash blossoms for our first course. We will have to return... More

Very classic menu with few changes over time. Never terrible but also never exciting, we are far from star restaurants in Los Angeles, Chicago, or New York. Had a couple of real disappointments over the many times I have been at Valentien, including a supposedly creative declination of Meyer's lemon desserts that made us call the chef. On a brighter...

Great food, great ambience (overlooks the Torrey Pines golf course). Good for special occasions (my 50th birthday, my husband's 60th) and romantic nights out. Have a drink on the patio before your dinner, or in the cozy bar, especially during winter. Super fireplace. Craftsman decor with an old California painting collection. I love this place!
