    Overall the food is quite good. The noise level can be a bit irritating if one is seeking pleasant conversation. The menu is not extensive but the food is well prepared and tastefully presented. This was my first visit to this venue. I would not be averse to returning. Not as upscale as I prefer but still acceptable.

    Had a great server. Ambiance was boring—bright and empty room. $350 for 3 people, too expensive for what you get but I suppose that’s similar to most hotel restaurants. Just not really worth it.

    This was the worst thanksgiving buffet I have ever attended. It was way overpriced for the quality and selection of food. There was only turkey and prime rib offered as entrees. There was no mashed potatoes and the turkey was tough and dry. The desserts looked like pastries you bought from Vons. For $85 per person/ $ 525 for our party of 4 I could have gone to the best steak house in San Diego and spent less. As a long time Hilton Honors member I was thoroughly disappointed with this meal and will certainly never visit again. Worst thanksgiving ever for my family. I will never recommend your restaurant

    Love the convenience of this restaurant when I’m going to the Shell. But something has slipped since it first opened. My husband ordered the pasta ($28) and wondered why it wouldn’t be served, at least, with a piece of garlic bread. The chicken was dry, but the accompaniments were lovely. Service was competent.

    We decide to try Hudson & Nash which is located in the Hilton Bayfront San Diego. We stopped here because we were headed to a show at The Shell and this is a convenient walk close to the venue. The food is good but way overpriced but I guess that’s what you pay for by the bay in the tourist area. We had drinks and shared a food dishes. View was amazing. We sat outside in the patio overlooking the water.

    Our second meal at this restaurant ahead of a concert at the shell. Service was great, as noted previously. Food was generally well prepared and quite tasty, if a little bit on the expensive side. Drinks were especially expensive, going for about $20 each regardless of the order for cocktails or wine. Wonderfully convenient and better value than the food court at the shell, but very few items on the menu and we have probably ordered all that we cared for. Will check the menu again for any changes before we return, because we can have a very pleasant meal in the Gaslamp for about the same cost.

    I was looking for a convenient venue for dinner when attending Beethoven by the Bay - this restaurant was part of the Hilton Hotel where we were parked. First impression was that this was awfully quiet for a Friday night with a concert and a ball game happening. Service was attentive - Chelsea, our server, understood that we were sensitive to timing and sped the dishes along. My wife's selection of salmon was quite pleasant - well caramelized on the outside but medium rare and seasoned well. I selected chicken jidori which was grilled, but unfortunately for too long, so it was dry and unpleasant. We ordered a peach crumble dessert to share, topped with a salted caramel ice cream, and this was the best part of the meal. Overall, not a bad dining experience and worth trying again.

    I went on Saturday for lunch during Comic Con. My husband ordered the smash burger. It was not a smash burger. The patties looked previously frozen and had edges like they were made mechanically uniform. Smash burger patties have irregular crispy edges. The patties were also dry. I ordered the Reuben which tasted good, but the bread was super oily. The french fries tasted frozen. The wait to get food took way too long. The dining room wasn't even full.

    We had a reservation for an outside table at 11AM. We did not get sat until 11:30 because there was a line of people and we had to check back with the hostess twice. She let us know that they sat too many people outside and now we don’t have a table out there - even though we had a reservation they sat walk ins before us. My take away is don’t make a reservation here as they prioritize walk ins first.

    This is my third meal at Hudson & Nash; the food and service both have been consistently great. Really enjoyed the Atlantic salmon, prepared with pork belly and pozole -- innovative and super yummy! I hope San Diegans don't miss this spot, thinking it's just a hotel restaurant. Definitely worth a visit, pre-Padres game or concert at Shell (or otherwise!).

    Salmon was very salty. Bucatini Bolognese looked like a child's plate. Out server, Carmen, was delightful and attentive. We noticed people eating nice looking burgers and fries. When we asked the server why we didn't see that option, she said its on the bar menu and you need to know to order it.
