Veranda Fireside Lounge & Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Located in the Rancho Bernardo Inn, the Veranda Fireside Lounge & Restaurant has transformed into a romantic, comfortable setting with well-crafted food. This stylish yet casual al fresco eatery serves up hearty breakfasts like buttermilk pancakes or lighter bites like egg white omelets with arugula, shiitake mushrooms and vegetable hash. Lunch calls for California Cobb salads or juicy Angus burgers. After a day of golf or spa lounging, fresh ingredient-driven cocktails a berry mule prove to be perfect sippers with small plate nibbles like grilled mahi mahi tacos. Dinner might feature hand-rolled pasta, beer-brined chicken, filet mignon or seared diver scallops. End on a sweet note with bread pudding or crème brûlée. As the sun sets and the firelight flickers, Veranda is further enchanted with live music.
