Enjoy Private Dining at Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa


Caretaker's Lawn - Rented Tables


You want the true Southern California experience under the shade of trees and the swaying of palms—an intimate private dinner for your wedding rehearsal, a post-wedding brunch, a small reception or even a tailored meal during your corporate retreat. Perhaps you just want to celebrate a special occasion with loved ones. There are many reasons people choose private dining at Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa and other Meritage Collection luxury resorts, and guests are sure to find the perfect venue for each special event.

Olive Lawn - Intimate DinnerKnown for its picturesque setting, temperate weather and sunshine, La Jolla is the perfect spot for outdoor private dining, and Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa offers a number of options, including the Olive Lawn, Hacienda Lawn, Garden Courtyard and Pool Terrace, ranging from 1,400 to 6,375 feet. Guests can gather in plush chairs around candlelit coffee tables, enjoy cocktails before going inside or partake in a full meal as custom lighting twinkles in the ocean breeze.

Trinitas Private Dining RoomThose seeking an indoor private dining event often choose the resort’s famed Trinitas Cellars Private Dining Room, which exudes warmth complete with a fireplace and room to seat up to 30 guests.

Like the resort as a whole, many of the private dining options combine indoors and out, such as the Garden Suite, featuring French doors that open onto a veranda, perfect for more intimate groups up to 24. The garden and veranda provide the ideal option for a cocktail hour prior to welcoming guests indoors for a private dinner.

Larger groups appreciate the Adobe el Restaurante location, which closes in the evenings, making the venue an excellent choice for a private reception up to 75 or private dinner for up to 60. The restaurant leads onto a veranda overlooking the beautiful Garden Courtyard.

Hacienda Lawn - Rustic GlamOf course, no private dining event would be complete without stellar cuisine, and guests of Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa can choose between a banquet menu—such as pre-selected entrees or hors d’oeuvres stations—or the Trinitas private dining menu. This seasonal menu can include Trinitas Cellars wine pairings, taking the event to the next level. Guests are able to order restaurant-style directly from this curated menu.

Creating a picturesque, tailored and delicious private dining experience is at the heart of each custom event.
