    Everything took forever. We had a reservation and it took 15 minutes just to be seated. They said they would bring waters without taking our other drink order. They brought the eater then got our drink order. They brought the wrong juice for my son after the wait. To fix the problem took another 10 minutes. Thankfully my son got his food first. 30 minutes for scrambled eggs and bacon. We finally got our food and were all finished up by 1pm from our 1045 reservation! The staff is very nice and attentive but when you do ask for something it takes 10 minutes at least to get it. Waitong for creamer for the coffee had the coffee cold in the meantime. What makes this fantastic is the view. That is why I'll be going back. The food is also thoughtful and tasty.

    No disappointment here. Food was very good, service was excellent and the ambience can't be beat. I had the BLTA with chips. The best I have had. My wife had the omelet which was also good. I strongly recommend the restaurant.

    Our meal was so delicious. The hand made potato chips outstanding and because we dined we got free entrance to the most lovely gardens with waterfalls and lots of places to stop and digest the food and meditate.

    The food was great, the ambiance was pleasant, but the service was appalling. Our appetizer order was taken in a timely manner but we waited close to 25 minutes before it arrived. The entree followed closely behind, but after it was delivered we NEVER saw our server. After asking someone to find her, Holly appeared at our table as if waiting over 30 minutes after finishing the meal was normal. She gave multiple excuses, none of them were acceptable. She did give us a small discount, but all in all, it does not make up for being literally ignored for most of our time there. I would recommend this restaurant but with a warning about the service.

    Great view from the veranda. The tables are close, which contributed to the elevated noise level. Service was average. We stood waiting for 10 minutes for our table even with a reservation.

    I have been to The Veranda many times, it is always beautiful. Unfortunately, we were there during a heat wave. The deck area really needs some misters to help with the heat. They do have fans and it is shaded. But the poor servers were exhausted in the heat and the service was very slow. They could not seat people inside due to a wedding being set up. Food was good.

    The Veranda is of our absolute favorite restaurants in San Diego County. Always feels like a retreat to go here. You feel like you are in an English garden. The food is always fabulous, and the ambiance is amazing. And it's such a treat to walk in the gardens after brunch.

    Another fabulous experience with friends at the Veranda. The food and service was exquisite as usual. I had the prime rib sandwich and every bite melted in my mouth. Always have the beignets as they are delightful. The view of the lake and the gardens are breathtaking. A tour of the tropical gardens and waterfalls was gorgeous, it’s a must for out of town visitors or makes for a nice day trip from Orange, LA and Riverside counties.

Bring your out of town guests to "wow" them with the unbeatable peaceful ambiance, overlooking the graceful park-like grounds and fountain. The food and service match the surroundings and will not disappoint you. Warning: Make your reservations long in advance!!

    We were sat right away to wait 15 minutes on a server who was on overload. The first thing the server asked was if we were ready to order. We hadn't looked at the menus-No greeting or drink order to start. Then the coffee came, lukewarm, then the food order was messed up and also lukewarm. Terrible service, mediocre food. The gardens are pretty though.

    This is an absolutely beautiful venue and the service was great. Sitting on the veranda and looking out over the lake and fountain was spectacular! Walking through the gardens after our lunch was a joy. My only complaint would be that I felt the food was mediocre. It started out promising, with a complimentary dish of fresh vegetables and fruits with dipping sauces, which was great! But the champagne cocktail I ordered was just okay, and not cold enough. I had the BLTA ,which was just bland. The sweet potato fries were good. The carmel crunch cake was not good or fresh. My sister loved her chicken chipolte wrap, however, so I may have just not made the best choices for me. They have a variety of choices on the menu; when I go again (and I will!) I'll try something else.

    The food quality was very poor compared to the Ambience of the restaurant and Gardens. The avocado that was served with my omelette was all brown and half inedible. The omelette was very plain without flavor. The potatoes looked like they were frozen and just quick fried. My friend had a Caesar salad and she said the salad dressing tasted like bottled chemicals. Very poor quality food for an upscale restaurant. The gardens are magnificent to walk around, I would just go to see the tropical Gardens and waterfalls. Hopefully they will improve the quality of food in the future, it’s such a nice place.

    The Veranda Restaurant owes its appeal to its surroundings not so much the food served, although the menu looks mouthwatering the taste is less, although I only can speak for myself. Others like it very much. The service is excellent and they would do everything to make the clients happy and content. I would definitely recommend it to a friend and will come again and try something else on the menu

    It is a very beautiful setting for brunch. the grounds are very well kept. the Beignets were excellent, definitely try them. The Club panini and Estate Burger were just okay but the fries were very good. I was disappointed with the Beverly breakfast sandwich, would not order it again, the potatoes that came with it was unappetizing and couldn't eat it. But we enjoyed the walk around the garden after our brunch, they provided us with ice water to take with us.

    This was our second visit to the Veranda. The prime rib sandwich was so good the first time, we had it again and were not disappointed. The sweet potato fries were crisp and delicious. For dessert, we had the cheesecake for superb finish to a delightful lunch. We will definitely visit again and plan to bring family and friends.
