The Brussels sprouts and cocktails were all phenomenal! I was just disappointed that the 20 dollar ahi tuna salad just had little chunks of tuna, not a big filet.

Humboldt is a regular for us. But we wanted a date night out that was close by and reliable. Humboldt is always a good choice for wines, cocktails, appetizers and entrees. The calamari was especially delicious as was the ahi tuna salad as an entree. My partner really enjoyed the sirloin.

We like Humbolt and enjoyed outdoor dining. We ordered two different fish from the specials menu. Both were overcooked and dry. Our server was wasn’t very present, but we understand that many restaurants are understaffed. We’ve had lunch here recently and that was great.

Went to this restaurant years ago and thought it was amazing. What happened!? This was by far one of the worst meals with some of the worst service I have ever experienced. Waitress has to be consistently tracked down to take orders, clear our table and bring the check. Never checked on our table. Not once. The crispy broccoli was bland. The buratta was so hard (yes hard) that it didn’t even resemble mozzarella and was served with greasy bread. The special was Panko crusted sole. Over cooked, bland, and soaking in oil. Seriously the grossest meal ever

I reserved a patio table and arrived to see someone had just been sat alone without their full party at our table. The host was unapologetic and then sat us at an awful table that we had to request a different one. Once sat the food and service were amazing. The host should have called to confirm our arrival before giving our table away.

Nice place to stop before or after a baseball game. Not very busy on the Saturday we visited (might have been the 4th of July weekend). Excellent wait staff (thanks Alex), good drinks, food was a bit heavy but everything we ordered was tasty and the portions good for sharing.

I enjoy the calamari appetizer, but I thought that the fish tacos were too heavily breaded. My friends really liked the trout and sole dishes.

Loved the restaurant, not the area around it. The homeless camps are very close and they do not offer valet parking now. I did not feel safe walking a few blocks to and from the restaurant .

We’ve been here a couple times and have really loved our dining experience. This most recent time we left feeling pretty disappointed. We were sat for lunch in the bar section and had very slow service, despite being one of the only if not the only table in that section with diners. It took 10 minutes for us to be greeted and get waters. We ordered our drinks and meals at that point because we’d been sitting for so long. It took another 5-10 minutes for our drinks to come and when we checked to see if our food was put in, our server only had written down 1 of our meals. When our food came out, the meal was very yummy so def recommend for the food. We were never checked on again by our server so never received water refills until the very end of our meal. The server dropped a water bottle at the table and checked to see if we wanted another drink which was silly since we were fully done with our meal. We expected the check to come since we’d said we were finished but instead we watched our server actually clock out without saying we were being transferred to the other server. Overall very terrible service.

Went with 2 friends for a Sunday afternoon brunch. We sat outside under the shade and was very comfortable despite the hot weather. Ambiance was great. The veggie omelette special was fantastic, however, my friends had the salmon eggs benedict and the Chilaquiles and both thought they were just ok. The brunch drinks were very good.

Good food, great ambiance and excellent service. Great cocktail list with reasonably priced options. The beer list can use some help (from my viewpoint).
Most entrees and appetizers are over-priced, but several good lower-cost entrees are available.
We'll definitely go back.

Sat on the patio on a beautiful Colorado evening. The grilled oysters were excellent, followed up with the octopus also excellent, and topped off with the seared tuna salad.
The wine list is very good with plenty of by-the-glass offerings.
