Restaurants

Valley Kitchen
Voted 2018 Best Restaurant in Carmel Valley by the readers of Monterey County Weekly, is the resort’s social hub, located in the Lodge. Valley Kitchen’s garden-to-table menu by award-winning Executive Chef Tim Wood is reflective of the produce, artisanal products and people of Carmel Valley, the resort’s two-acre organic garden, and Chef Wood’s own philosophy of sustainability. With an ever-evolving seasonal menu, Valley Kitchen allows guests to enjoy a variety of ingredients delivered fresh from the land and sea by our Ranch Artisans and other local purveyors, as well as international cuisines inspired by Valley Kitchen’s diverse culinary team, from classic Californian to Portuguese to Moroccan.  

The Golf Clubhouse Grill
The casual Clubhouse Grill with crackling fire pits, expansive patio, and front row seats to the rolling fairways, is a favorite, whether you’re captivated by the game—or simply the view. On any given day, you’ll find a full checklist of Clubhouse classics—elevated breakfast staples, hearty soups, fresh salads, sandwiches, snacks and sides, old-school desserts, local beer on tap and a full bar—not to mention a darn good burger, flame-grilled. 

River Ranch Café
Our laid-back poolside eatery (housed in our historic 132-year-old building) will have your family feeling nurtured from morning to evening. Equally awesome are the comfy seating and wide-open views. Beyond the Ranch Favorites and farmstead-inspired fare, our rousing ranch-style dinners—featuring themes like Taco Tuesday or Wood-Fired Pizza Night on Fridays—are crowd favorites for hanging with your crew or fellow Ranch families.
