We believe each meal is our opportunity to create for you unique, flavor-rich, choice-filled dining experiences based on your personal preferences and mindful of your dietary requirements. Wherever and whenever you dine on our campus, all your senses will be satisfied by our menu options, bountiful in their use of fresh, local, seasonal ingredients and from-scratch, made-to-order creations.
Three venues. Award-winning dining. And so many choices you could dine for weeks without ordering the same thing twice!
- The Grandview—your very own on-campus gourmet restaurant, named for the grand view of the Saddleback Mountains. Dine al fresco on the patio–and if the ocean breezes cause a bit of a chill, our outdoor heaters will keep you cozy! Click here to see a sample menu.
- The Cove—our award-winning bistro for superb casual-yet-fine dining.
- The Grandview Lounge—where you can meet up with new neighbors or entertain lifelong friends over cocktails and lighter bites.
