Don't even think about eating here. Worst meal I have ever had. Twice the price, 1/2 the portions. Our waitress was great, but...

Although there are no views from this restaurant, the decor is very nice and the menu eclectic! I had a Caipirpina (a play on the traditional Caipirina drink) with pineapple in it! My ribeye steak was thick and boneless and tasted more like a filet mignon than a ribeye. It was cooked perfectly, medium rare. It came with a tasty... More

The Marriott in Del Mar is only made better by this outdoor lounge. There are so many comfortable places to relax, read, sleep or get together with family and friends. The indoor bar and outdoor pool are but a few steps away. If you a re an early riser this is the place to go while waiting for everyone else... More

I've been going to Arterra since it first opened. Like any business it's had its us and downs. But it is definitely on an UP--a big UP. Today we had a phenomenally delicious lunch with exceptional service. Bravo to Chef Evan Cruz and server Chris Meyer. I was celebrating birthdays with two friends. We shared 2 appetizers (empanadas with chimichurri... More

I had the Caesar salad with salmon ($24) and it was one of the best Caesar salads I've had. The views are nice and the service was superior.

What a delicious breakfast and excellent service! This item is on the menu and described as Housemade Corned Beef Hash (Poached eggs, scallions, hollandaise sauce). I wanted scrambled eggs without the hollandaise sauce. It as awesome (see picture attached). Chunks of corned beef and potatoes, yum!!! Service was great and unfortunately I do not remember the name of my server,... More

I had the Eggs Benedict and they were so good, the hash browns were even better. I would have to say the hot chocolate was far from the best I've had, but they had real whip cream not cheap stuff!

I ate here almost every night during the week as I was a guest for a couple of months between October and December, of the San Diego Marriott Del Mar in which the restaurant is located. As such, I've eaten almost everything on the menu including the sushi bar. Food has been consistently very good. I've not really had a... More
