It was our 67 wedding anniversary and on our menu they congratulated us which was very special. Great service and food.
world-class location. Wonderful architecture with views of golf course and swimming pool.
Given the pandemic, we were concerned about dining out. We decided, however, that AR Valentien would do a great job to keep their clients and workers safe. We were right. They did a very good job, enabling us to relax and enjoy being there.
Wonderful table on the south facing patio - off by itself. We were seated at 5pm with no other tables occupied. By the time we left at 6:30pm, most of the tables were occupied. Food fabulous; server Nick was attentive and thoroughly professional. We felt safe in that environment.
Food always amazing. Service impeccable, comfortable, perfect without being stuffy. There is never anything wrong here. Beautiful setting. Staff cannot do enough to take care of their customers.
This place never disappoints. Service is always top notch. Food superbly prepared and presented. Menu always food with interesting twists. Expert sommelier on hand. Best California wine list you'll ever see.

Anniversary celebrate with friends. It has been a while since I have been here and still does not disappoint. We got to see one of our favorite bartenders Dan he is one of the best in San Diego. Had the honor of being able to chat with Paul who is always amazing and so good at his job.
It was a pleasure to welcome you back to A.R. Valentien! We appreciate your kind words and look forward to welcoming you back again soon!
Great ambience if you get the right table. We moved ours for a better view of the grounds.
Yummy food. And presentation and service. The host was very gracious and gave a glass of port wine complimentary to the cigar that my husband bought.
We enjoyed the whole experience and it rekindled the romance in quarantine.
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are delighted to hear that you had a relaxing evening with your husband. We appreciate your kind words and look forward to welcoming you back again soon!
Overall, the food was delicious. I thought there was not enough variety but could have been due to fewer patrons due to Covid. The highlight of the evening was the rib caps. They were perfectly cooked and medium rare in the medium. Very succulent. The salmon with polenta was good as well. However, I wasn't a fan of how much butter was in the polenta. I also think more substantial portion of vegetables was needed to really make dish shine. Ahi tuna charcuterie was just ok. All breads that were brought to the table were awesome.
It was our pleasure to have you here with us! We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed overall dining experience! We appericate your detailed feedback and have shared it with our culinary team. Thank you, and we hope to welcome you back again soon!
The outdoor patio atmosphere was amazing. Add the sunset into the mix and you couldn’t ask for a better place to dine. The service was fantastic and the food, AMAZING! From the drinks, to the appetizers, main course and dessert. Everything was sooooo good!
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us! We are delighted to hear that everything from the service to the sweeping views of the Torrey Pines Golf Course and the Pacific Ocean was amazing! We hope to welcome you back again soon!
It was my husband’s birthday. From the moment we arrived until we departed we had an excellent experience. Wonderful attentive staff, the food was prepared perfectly. They did a great job with physical distancing along with allowing enough time to enjoy our dining before the next reservation. Paul the sommelier was very personable and graciously extended a taste of an additional wine.
We had a very special dining experience.

Went to celebrate an anniversary. The hostess, Rachel, was super hospitable. I asked if she could take a picture of my boyfriend & I before dinner and she took the time to get the perfect picture for us knowing I wanted to post it on social media. She made recommendations on the menu and was great the entire time.
Don’t remember our server’s name, but he was helpful and kind. Definitely didn’t make us feel like we were one of the last tables to go and he wanted to leave. Very appreciative of that treatment.
The MOD was incredibly friendly and courteous. He made us feel so welcome. We were having trouble getting an uber back to our hotel and he graciously gave us a ride back since it was just next door.
The whole experience was wonderful. Would 100% recommend and will be returning.
Thank you for joining us and we appreciate your recommendation! We are delighted to hear that you had a memorable anniversary dinner here at A.R. Valentien and look forward to welcoming you back for future celebrations to come!
We dropped $250 for dinner for us two, 2 nights in a row, and it was worth it.

Thank you for joining us for such a special occasion! We are elated to hear that you loved your dining experience and hope to welcome you back for future celebrations to come!
There was one woman that kept walking around without a mask and that was uncomfortable. She was a guest of the restaurant and I understand not wanting to take a stand with a guest but it does make the other guests not comfortable.
Thank you for dining with us and we appericate you bringing your concerns to our attention. All guests must wear a mask when not seated at their table and we are truly sorry to hear of this situation. We have shared your feedback with management and hope to welcome you back again soon.
Even in these uncertain times, our experience was amazing. The food was delicious. The service was impeccable. The chocolate mouse was the best!
