"We were pleasantly surprised by the wonderfully delicious dinner. We loved the decadent lobster macaroni and cheese, the filet mignon was cooked perfectly medium rare and topped with a fantastic brown sauce, and my sea bass was mild, yet tasty. But then we were blown away by an absolutely perfect cosmopolitan martini! Mastro's has some stiff competition. Service was outstanding all evening long."

"I'm not sure how you can have a limited menu for lunch and then still not make edible food. I ordered a simple chicken sandwich. It was tasteless and mostly bread. Was wondering where the chicken was. There was a red pepper aioli. The only thing that was interesting was the bright orange color, but there was no flavor. Service was abysmal. My order was taken, and food delivered, but that was about it. Even hard to get the bill. Oy."

"Your server TJ was on the spot and quite accommodating. We had been dealing with the traffic at the cove and needed a refreshing drink so we asked for root beer floats. But since you don't have root beer he made us Coke floats! Great and hit the spot."

"Torreyana Grille was nice, the service was good, the food fair, but it was not worth the high price. La Jolla has a lot of high priced restaurants where the food is great, the view is exceptional, and the service is over the top for the price. Unfortunately Torreyana Grille does not one of them."

"Our family took our mother this past Sunday for Mother's day brunch. Having never been there I was very impressed by how nice the restaurant is and how beautiful the view of the golf course and the Pacific Ocean behind it is.
Having 11:00am reservations and it being Mother's Day, I thought the place would be a whole lot busier than it was...which frankly, I enjoyed not being crowded. The food was great without being anything mind blowing. Except for the desserts, being a sugar fiend I love my desserts and these were divine. The service from the wait staff was excellent, what I'd expect from any restaurant inside a Hilton Hotel, especially in La Jolla.
All that being said, we probably could have eaten just as good food at another local for about $250.00 instead of the almost $600.00 for 7 of us that went. We definitely paid for the location and the view."

"Very expensive entrees , this is a place to eat when you are stuck in the hotel, with no other alternative. While it looks great on the paper, you end up with a cold plate with no flavor. Better stay with the appetizers!"

"I have eaten here are two different occasions. The brunch here is pretty decent with a variety of selections. if you want to eat before you leave and save some time i would recommend that. i have also eaten dinner here and i have to say the food isn't bad, but it isn't all that great either. The shrimp and crab nachos seemed a bit soggy and the New York Steak was okay. For the price i would say drive down and find something else."

"We went to the Torreyana Grille for Thanksgiving, and it was all we could have hoped for. The setting was lovely, the food was delicious, and the service was excellent. Notable: The roast beef was the best I've ever had, and the swordfish was perfect. We also especially enjoyed the dessert bar. So many selections in portions small enough to try several without guilt. We're so happy we discovered this feast on this special day."
