Fodor's Review

Champions of in-season, fresh-today produce and seafood, executive chef Jeff Jackson and Chef de Cuisine Kelli Crosson have made this cozy room in the luxurious, Craftsman-style Lodge at Torrey Pines one of San Diego’s top fine dining destinations. Their food combinations are simultaneously simple and delightfully inventive—duck breast with celery root risotto; ahi tuna with grapefruit and crispy quinoa; or swordfish with chorizo and charred scallion salsa verde. Lunch and dinner tasting menus ($40 and $75, respectively) are like a walk through a farmers’ market. Still there are menu perennials like the silky chicken liver pate. In good weather, enjoy meals plus ocean views from the terrace.
