    This gem in the middle of Fallbrook offers a unique dining experience. Seated on a wide veranda of a Victorian house, looking out on a pond and carefully tended gardens, one could imagine being almost anywhere. The service is always attentive and thoughtful. The food is very good and beautifully presented. Regarded by locals as a special occasion restaurant, it is always busy so advance reservations are a must. It’s known as a favorite site for weddings. The couple next to us were returning after having been married here 25 years ago.

    One of the nicest Restaurant experiences I can remember. In addition my partner lost her keys while at the venue and staff was extremely helpful in finding them within the day. Can't say enough good things about this experience. Food is first class as well as the staff and help. In addition the impeccable surroundings and landscaped grounds will take your breath away. Can you tell I liked it? I say 6 stars and beyond. Extremely satisfied.

    Outstanding ambiance looking over the perfectly manicured grounds. Our waitress was super sweet but the kitchen has issues sending us the wrong food several times. Walking the gardens after brunch was a lovely finish to our visit there. We will definitely try it again.

    Veranda has become one of our favorite restaurants. It is in a magical, beautiful location. Sitting at brunch on the covered patio overlooking acres of beautiful gardens is reason enough to go there. Then- your food comes- and it is so delicious. The beignets alone are worth the trip. The servers are wonderful and the entire experience is special. Then, the best part is after you eat, you can take a walk through acres of some of the most stunning gardens you will ever see. It is a bit of a drive for us to get to Fallbrook, but worth it for a memorable and delicious brunch.

    What a perfect place for a relaxing get-together with friends. This is definitely a special venue, serving good food in a beautiful garden setting. Everything here is impeccable - location, patio setting, food, service, and gardens. Would recommend this restaurant for any special occasion or just a nice lunch.

    Quality food, I have the best tasted prime rib sandwich ever; reasonable price, great services with unbeatable garden view. One couldn’t ask for more to celebrate - my wife is very pleased with the selection. Just hope it would open more days to the public!

    The Veranda Restaurant at Grand Traditions Estate and Gardens was absolutely beautiful! The view was stunning and the food was really good as well. Walked the grounds after breakfast - just a serene and breathtaking place to spend a morning or early afternoon. Get your reservations in advance. They book fast.

    Food was very at a Reasonable price for what you get ... The food took way to long ( 45mins ) after ordering (2) Hamburger and French fries & the Waitress seem to forget about ours drinks & refills in a Timely manner 10 - 15mins waiting for them .. This being the first bad / poor Experience i've had there .. Overall its a very nice setting with Nature

    Impeccable service.... the chef(s) were having a bad day tho. Soup was luke warm, poached eggs were almost hard boiled. Took longer than it normally does to receive our food. Usually I give this place 5 stars... but , as I said the chef's seemed to be having a bad day.

    The Veranda was an absolutely beautiful experience! I went with my mother, a highschool girlfriend and her mother. The lavish hanging flower baskets, the immaculate lawn, the heart-shaped lake with gazebo were just stunning. In addition to the beautiful ambience, the food was sooo delicious and surprisingly it was very reasonably priced! We all thoroughly enjoyed out time at The Veranda.

    Wonderful location for a special brunch! Food is great and friendly staff. Eating outdoors on the terrace in CA is a treat. The only downside was that we were in full sun for the first hour of our meal. Some shade cover would have made the experience so much more enjoyable.

    The ambience was amazing. The BLTA was a BLT since they failed to include avocado. The bread was so hard it hurt the roof of my mouth. The bacon was somehow flavorless and too crunchy. The waitress didn’t check on us, and I had to flag her down. The sandwich was so bad they did take it off the check and were very polite about doing so. Others in my party did enjoy their food. May go again but won’t order a BLTA.

    Beautiful landscaping to look at while dining. I love the fact that if you dine there you can tour the botanical gardens at no charge. That’s a $7.50 saving per person. The menu is fresh and bright and always tasty. Service was excellent and very friendly.
