Well done, and excellent food. We weren't rushed, and enjoyed a small birthday lunch. Mussels were excellent! Will return!

Came here with the wife for VDay. We did the 3-course meal (duck breast appetizer, waygu strip for entree, chocolate cake desert); all three were phenomenal. I can definitely see us going back in the future.

This place is a hidden gem!! I don't know if I can speak highly enough of this restaurant. The food was fantastic. The atmosphere is classy and elegant. The service was fantastic! Given that we're in a pandemic, they were properly set up to accommodate us while ensuring we felt safe.

The cold draft inside the restaurant was miserable. I couldn’t feel my feet the entire time we were there and I had leather boots on. The broccoli was to die for by the risotto was incredibly salty and inedible unfortunately.

I felt bad. Humboldt has had its glory days, and this place will be a casualty of Covid in my opinion. The food and service was great, but there was just a general malaise to the atmosphere. Also, a mouse ran across the floor. A couple called it out, but no one seemed to care.

Other than the restaurant marked me as a no show for my reservation even though I was the only one there and told them I had a reservation and I got a "how dare you" email from Open table about it, the restaurant was great :)

Picked up my mom and we went to Humboldt for dinner. They are doing their part for social distancing. food and service were very good. Love the trout dip. Risotta was delicious, but very rich.

Humboldt Kitchen and Bar has a perfect menu with something for everyone! The craft cocktails are excellent. Try the Crispy Cauliflower and Burrata, delicious perfect starters! The Steelhead Trout was phenomenal, cooked perfectly and the crispy capers were so tasty! Can't wait to try more on the menu!

The location was great for us, the restaurant was beautiful, loved the look of it. Our appetizer scallops were amazing, if you like scallops make sure to try them. My husband got the Mahi Mahi special and it was very good and I got the NY Strip, my steak was good but not great but then we got dessert since it was my birthday dinner and the flourless chocolate cake was amazing!!! This place didn't disappoint and our server was amazing, he was very nice and prompt.

We were literally sat at the table next to an access door with sever draft when plenty of other tables were available even during covid. 2 out of 3 ordered trout with grits and we all got trout with risotto another item on the menu, likely left over but no mention from kitchen or wait staff. Told last call and assumed drink but last call apparently meant kitchen closed at 9 pm.

Food was the biggest disappointment this time..the menu is incredibly limited (understandable) but then the quality was bad. Had to send back food for temp even.

It was absolutely packed! They did distance as much as they could it seemed.

They are opening back up so staffing is low, idk if they can block out times on open table to cut down chaos to help w kitchen and service. Server was attentive as possible prob and there were a few others running around to help. Def should tell guests they have maybe 90 min during busy times so people aren't just sitting without buying things and holding up the table. But im guessing most understand things are in transition as far as that goes. Biggest most legit feedback is food quality and options..

- groups of the same size who got there after us were seated before us

- big group of people in front of restaurant waiting to be seated - host had no organization of what groups had been helped vs. not

- waitress was good, but said she would take something off our bill, then didn’t

- food was good

- I understand they reopened only a few days prior, but the customer service was poor.

Despite the fact that our reservation was for a standard (not high top or outside table), we arrived on-time and were told our only indoor option was for a high top table closest to the front and patio door. We asked if we could wait for the other 3 seater high top that just needed to be cleaned off and were told no and also told that our only other option was outside despite what our reservation confirmation was. We hadn’t even placed our drink order before the other 3 seater was cleared and other guests were seated there.

We dealt with cold drafts as well as other guests waiting for their table or to-go orders waiting for their food in our space all night. Needless to say; this put a damper on our experience.

There’s no indoor dining right now but Saturday brunch beckoned despite the 25 degree day.
The staff went the extra step tp make sure we were warm with three outdoor heaters just for our table. Everything was great with top awards for the cauliflower appetizer. Thanks for being open!
