Celebrated my wife's 74th birthday at A. R. Valentine and had a great time. Each of the 8 of us agreed the food and service were excellent. I and two others enjoyed the duck confit recommended by the server, and it was the best I've ever had--by far! We have eaten there several times, always a wonderful experience. Food and... More

Whether for a special occasion or simply making a glass of wine on the porch a special experience, A. R. Valentien is by far the most beautiful, customer oriented, delightful food experience in San Diego. Also, there is nothing like spending time in an authentic Arts and Crafts building that overlooks the Torrey Pines Golf course. You can't go wrong.

Wonderful night out with friends and Valentien's provided the perfect food and environment. The close location to the Hilton Torrey Pines (short parking lot walk) is also convenient. Thanks!

We've enjoyed lunches and dinners here and it's always a special treat. The service is consistently top-notch. The outside seating area is covered and nice when you want to be a bit more casual and inside is cozy and elegant. We like to bring out-of-town guests so they can sample this only-in-San Diego treat. The food lives up to its... More

From the moment you arrive you find yourself in a world of understated elegance: all achieved with natural and local respect for the ocean and the environment. Pass through the warm and wooded entry, force yourself to ignore the warm large sitting area dominated by ocean views and a wonderful fireplace to gather around. the treat is found in the... More

Perfect place for a business lunch. Attentive service, great food, good selections. Good wine selection. Also nice for couples - beautiful grounds for a pre or post meal walk. On the pretty vey side but the value for dollar is there.

The craftsman style decor was very attractive. The service was good and my swordfish was prepared perfectly. The view out the window across the golf course was pleasant. We would return for an occasion that warranted the expense.

This was by far the best meal we ate on our trip to San Diego. From the nice outdoor seating with heating lamps overlooking the pool to service and food, everything was 5 star. The duck 2 ways was the best duck I have ever eaten, and to me very reasonably priced. We ate at Addison and were very disappointed,... More

My family and I stayed at the Lodge and had our first dinner after arrival at this restaurant. Regardless of late hour the food and the service were great! My daughter could not make a selection from the regular menu and the waiter made suggestions as to what the Chef can prepare off the menu. He came up with beautiful... More
