    Reservations made for Sunday lunch. Food was delicious. Warm seafood salad, the salmon, and the halibut were all hits. Drinks, listed on the menu, were delicious. Bloody Mary came garnished with one of the best pickles I've had in my life- spicy with a little bit of sweetness. One member of our group tried to order a cocktail not listed on a menu and it didn't seem the server was familiar so I'm not sure if your favorite cocktail might be available here. Service was a little slow, we waited for about 10 min to be seated despite arriving on time for our reservations.

    We dinner on Thanksgiving around 3:30 was disappointed that they crammed 5 adults in a table for 4 people by adding a chair at the end of the table. It is disappointing that a restaurant does this especially when they do it to adults. The food at best was so-so nothing special considering the price. They had the standards prime rib, which was very good, turkey also excellent. The ham was dry and not very hot. The sides were ok would have been nice to have a larger selection. They still had breakfast items out at 3:30 these should have been rotated out for more lunch / dinner sides. The cheese selection was nice; others in the party did not like the fact that the shrimp needed to be pealed this is something that one expects at boil but not at a nice restaurant. Would are party do another holiday dining there probably not it was nothing special.

    Wait staff didn’t seem that busy. Saw plenty of them just sort of standing around but it took 20 minutes to get asked if we wanted water or anything else to drink. Not the end of the world but for the price paid, I’d expect a bit more alacrity. Food was good. Lovely place. Probably would try somewhere else before repeating that tho.

    Thanksgiving vacation out of town with the family. Completely underwhelmed. For $95/pp the quality was subpar, food temperature was inconsistent, and listed items on the website menu were not all provided. The waitstaff was non-existent and we had to ask for water and additional drinks several times during the one hour meal. We went out for dinner later that evening in DT San Diego and the food for 1/2 the cost was 10X better and more flavorful. The service was on point and we tipped 30%. Don’t waste your time.

    Worst holiday brunch EVER! For $95 per person it was extremely disappointing and no champagne included! You could purchase mimosas for seven bucks!. Food was over cooked—ham was so dry it was actually ham Jerky. Turkey was a roll not a real Turkey. No salads, smoked salmon but no fixings. Dessert was really sad! No traditional ones like pumpkin or pecan pie. Just a bunch of tasteless tea cakes. Who in the world made up their menu! I think they just wanted to make a lot of money from a holiday rip-off. Wouldn’t go back for ANYTHING.

    The place was lovely and our food good but we did not get bread to start and when we offered to buy an order of bread the waitress said they don’t have or serve bread of any kind. Big disappointment. We each only had a plate of pasta with mushrooms And the bill came to $91.00 + a $15. Tip. Ambience was beautiful but we can’t recommend it. There are lots of restaurants in SD where you can get good food and get excellent bread to start and perhaps for less money.

    The food and service were excellent. It was our anniversary and I requested a window seat, they made sure we had a table with a great view of the Harbor. The dining room is a large open room and it was a little loud. There was a large party (2 tables with kids) and a wedding reception in an adjoining room that made it a bit noisy. Overall we were happy. I would definitely eat there again.

    This was like a Hidden gem at the hotel we were staying at. The food was high end and so good. The service was fantastic. My friend had a birthday and they brought us a beautiful piece of birthday cake. We went back for breakfast and it was also spectacular. I highly recommend this restaurant. The view was also breathtaking.

    We went at 5:30 thinking that it would be a quiet time. Band was playing next door & extremely loud. I ordered Caesar salad $16 and lettuce was so tough that I had to use a steak knife. Main course was mushroom pasta. It was good but very small portions & expensive. I also shared a chocolate cake with my husband. Extremely expensive dinner & I was hungry when I left

    Never fails to impress!! The food was delicious we had a table by the window and got to watch the sunset behind the sailboats so beautiful. The waitress was very friendly and accommodating. I had a special request to have my Cesar salad with a crab cake and they had no problem making me exactly what I wanted. My Teo friends ordered the halibut and were equally pleased. Eve time I am staying in San Diego I try to make it a point to come to Humphreys. After dinner we went into the bar to watch the live band. It was a slow night, Tuesday after a long holiday so it was a small crowd but the music was fun and the drinks were delicious.

    Brought my wife for our wedding anniversary and everything was wonderful. Our server Rhea was very attentive, and their was someone constantly making sure our glasses were filled. The watermelon and burratta salad was very enjoyable, and the pork belly was perfectly cooked. The crab cake was good as well, but could have been a bit warmer. The Halibut was great, but the rice was bit over cooked. The lobster risotto was good, but it seemed like there was to much butter used in the recipe and it over powered any taste of lobster. The crème brûlée and cheesecake were both out of this world. Thank you for making our anniversary so enjoyable!!

    We met our son and 2 year old grandson at Humphrey's for breakfast on Labor Day. Having only been in the area for concerts, we didn't know much about the restaurant. The food was really good, Mirna and the others helping her provided great service and our grandson was really entertained by the view of the harbor. Thanks for a great breakfast and we will be back.

    We were greeted with a smile by a young woman who also opened the door for us. We were quickly seated at a table which one of the seats was up against the wall and impossible to set in. We asked to move the table out a little, but it wasn't enough. We said thank you and then moved the table a little more away from the wall when the server left. We were quickly served hot coffee and given menus. We also asked for water. It took quite a while before the served returned. The small restaurant was approximately 1/3 full. When our server returned, we made our order, including orange juice, and again asked for water. A busser came to bring the water, but did not offer to refill our coffee. After 22 minutes, our breakfast arrived. The Chilequillas was warm with two soft eggs on top and crispy chips which had been stirred in the sauce. The chorizo was nicely diced and flavorful. The eggs benedict were luke warm and very bland, but the eggs were correctly cooked. We asked for a refill on our coffee and again asked for our orange juice. The juice was brought by a busser a few minutes later. Our server did not return to ask if our breakfast was okay. The restaurant had floor-to-ceiling windows with a very nice view of lots of boats, and it was clean. The ladies rest room was easy to find and clean with all supplies well stocked. However, there was not a trash bin by the door to throw away your handtowel after opening the door. We asked for our bill so we could pay. After twelve minutes, we still did not have our bill. I approached the manager to get our bill, we paid, and got up from the table. As we approached the front door, the manager opened it for us and asked us to have a nice day.

    Good service and atmosphere. Disappoint with food. Had probably the most expensive selection on the menu, but selection and quantity of vegetables was very poor. Vegetable sauces are served and are called vegetables! Left hungry and disappointed. No bread available. Took way too long to have credit card and bill returned to the table.

    We have been going to Humphrey restaurant for over 20 years and it had been fantastic, but this visit was Awful!!! Now here at this restaurant, they no longer serve “Hot” Butter Bread as before nor do the restaurant offer you vegetables with your meal, they just bring you a plate with just the main course, totally unacceptable for us so it looks like we will be looking for a new restaurant, Humphrey Restaurant NO LONGER MEETS OUR Cusine needs as a 4 star restaurant.

    The hostess was not accommodating , even moved us after telling us we couldn’t have a window table and we had a reservation. The service was incredibly slow. Kitchen took over 30 minutes to prepare our food. Food was good but small portions. We won’t be back. It’s very dated also.
