It’s not just a meal.. it’s an experience!

The Lodge’s signature restaurant, A.R. Valentien, takes its name from a talented early-1900’s California artist whose works in ceramics, watercolors, and oils are now valued collectors items. A.R. Valentien features fresh regional San Diego cuisine served in an elegant, timbered room overlooking the 18th hole of Torrey Pines Golf Course. The restaurant’s decor also includes an exhibit of original Valentien artworks.

Craftsman architecture with metal-strap post and beam:

The restaurant itself is a tribute to Southern California heritage and Craftsman architecture, with a metal-strap post-and-beam structure, handcrafted wood-framed windows, stained-glass lanterns and a frieze painted with pine boughs. The layout of the restaurant is also conducive to elegant San Diego fine dining, with several small rooms and plush booths to lend intimacy.
