Was a great atmosphere on the patio. Plenty warm from the heaters. The food was good and the wine was reasonably priced. Just one comment - it was a bit frustrating to only have one vegetarian option.
But it was a good option.
Very creative, delicious food. Friendly service. The ambiance /decor is a bit drab and too dark. The wine was overpriced and desert options too heavy.
We enjoyed our brunch but the service was slow and not attentive.
Lost Valentine’s Day celebration. Good times, great food and solid service. I’ll be back for sure.
Best burger ever. Period. Excellent truffle fries. Awesome drinks!
As someone who comes from the service industry, I don’t find myself writing reviews ever. But, this one I had me a little upset and underwhelmed. I took my girlfriend out for Valentine’s Day and was recommended this restaurant by a friend. We got sat quickly at a nice spot by the bar. We recieved a Valentine’s Day menu and drink menus and that’s where my review starts. We were not greeted by anyone for 10 minutes. We were sitting there in between tables if people being served and not one person said hello. Finally the manager (in a suit) came by and asked us if we had be started on drinks, and finally go those for us. Our server finally comes back with the drinks and asks for our order. Now I’m totally ok with the Valentine’s Day menu if restaurants only have that for the night, what I’m not ok with is when a restaurant has a valentines menu but doesn’t mention they also have the normal menu if you want that too. Our server didn’t even mention we could order from the other menu, because we didn’t want to do three course meal. We would have much rather ordered off the normal menu but I feel like it was shady to not mention that we could order off that menu. Then we got the first dish which was fine (lobster bisque, and bruschetta) nothing special about it. Our entrees (chicken snetzel and pork chop) were really good. Then the desert came out and that was ok as well. Overall the food was 3/5 but noting special. Our bill came out to $170 with tax and tip and we just felt cheated. I don’t mine spending money for great food, but when the service and the food dont reflect what I’m paying, it really sucks. That being said we probably wouldn’t go back to give it another try, and we really really were excited about this place. Huge bummer. I would hope management addresses the service issues promptly.
We meet with our friends every year on Valentines - 15 years !
Bankers was right at the top !
I LOVE this place and so does everyone I take there.
My wife and I have been here no less than 20 times or more since it opened. Every time has been great including food service etc. This time was different. While the salad (citrus and avo was great) our entree’s the steak and the pork tacos were sub par at best. The steak was tough and bland the tacos were not the original recipes they had a few years ago. Perhaps a new chef tinkering? Not sure but i was just sad for this restaurant. I wont’ be back for awhile. Why pay good money for a bad meal. Service was excellent as always.
Banker's Hill has always been one of our favorite restaurants. We can always count on great food, attentive service, and a lovely ambiance for a relaxed dinner!
As always the service was beyond excellent from the hostess, to the waiter (John), and food runner. Food was also exceptional. Happy Hour had some amazing deals. Great evening. Thank you BHB
10 am Sunday brunch and we were the first there! Great Bloody Mary to start
Hand made cinnamon rolls !!!
Many had the bourbon French toast
And i had short rib “ hash” with an egg which wasn’t hash but was good!
Place filled up by the time our group of 8 left and we all enjoyed!
The service was outstanding. The was food was delicious. We especially enjoyed the avocado and citrus salad. It was one of the best salads we have ever experienced.
Love the food and service, but even when we arrived at 5:30 p.m. on a Saturday night, the noise level rose almost immediately. The only drawback at this otherwise fine establishment...
Great place for Happy Hour; homemade potato chips, beet salad with frisee and goat cheese, taco of the day, beef slider for starters with a nice cocktail. Love the casual but special neighborhood vibe. Parking on the street is easy during early evening hours. Great service, will be back!
Food quality wasn’t as good as usual.
First time visit. Food was decent and so were the drinks. Liked the interior and exterior of this place.
Great dinner and accommodating staff. But please change the front door! Tables near it get a blast if cold air!
Restaurant week was amazing. Christina the server did a great job with the whole experience along with her team!
The food was delicious! We will be back!
Outstanding place to dine. Many choices of excellent food! Never thought I would rave about cauliflower, but Bankers Hill changed my mind.
One of the only places in San Diego right now where I feel like I actually got what I paid for.
We went for San Diego Restaurant Week. The food was heavenly-- honestly!
The the chicken schnitzel and bread pudding were to die for.
Extremely personable server who made us feel special and made the meal that much more enjoyable.
Banker's Hill offers a delight for the palate. The cauliflower is crispy and the sauce adds the perfect finish for each bite. We went for restaurant week and it was a great value for a delicious meal.
Modern/industrial, but warm and inviting. Great friendly service. Delicious specialty cocktails. Very good devilled eggs. Would like to go again.
Great food. Meatloaf was outstanding, especially with the Brussels sprouts.
The waiter was super friendly and the food was absolutely delicious!
A cozy restaurant with wonderful staff serving delicious food. I highly recommend the braised pork tacos, they are exceptional and if I lived closer I would have had dinner there the next night
This is an outstanding restaurant. Most amazingly, it remains good year after year. It’s one of our favorite places and we drive half an hour to get there. Worth every trip!
The food was amazing and the service was great. Everything was fresh and full of flavor. A new favorite
To pay $100 for a 3-course meal w/wine pairing, you’d expect the wine to come out with the food and not after the fact.
Food was ok. If anything waaaay toooo salty!
Excellent service. Price does not match what you get.
Food was exceptionally good. While there was some errors in our service they were very apologetically and quickly made up to us. Will definitely recommend this restaurant and come back again.
One of the best places... I always get the bruschetta #amazing! Best burger I have had! Never had a bad meal here
We had eaten here a couple of times on San Diego Restaurant Week and really enjoyed it and wanted to try it again. We both ordered the salmon as our entrée and it was very good with a new preparation of risotto and mushrooms. Since we had made a healthy entrée choice we decided to split the warm chocolate brownie which had been chosen some months back by SD Magazine as one of the best desserts in town. It did not disappoint.
Good food as always.
I have always loved banker’s hill and still do but my last visit was dissapointing, our food was great as always but the service just wasn’t... our waiter although polite basically forgot we existed, we had to wave to get his attention and even then it seemed forced, no drink updates and at last when I ordered a glass of wine almost by the end of my meal it never arrived... I will go back for sure and hopefully it will just have been a bad day!
What a delightful meal :) We didn't have a place to go for Christmas eve but we were relieved that Bankers Hill was going to be open. The ambiance was great, no rush and very cozy for a cold winter night. Nice vegetarian options were available (which stills seems to be a rare thing to have for most restaurants during holidays) and the meat entrees were extremely good! The chipotle glazed meatloaf was scrumptious and holiday drinks were right on point. A hidden jewel in Bankers Hill :)
Dined for Christmas Eve with my husband. Overall service was 3.5 stars. Food 4 starts.
Great restaurant, wonderful staff, good location.
