Service not up to par for a fancy restaurant. Server did bare minimum to get by. Didn’t say anything personable or acknowledge it was Valentine’s Day. Brought out check while we were still eating by just leaving it on the table face up and walking away. I have had better service at Denny’s. We still left a reasonable tip as this is probably an issue with management and training. Food was good but overpriced. We ordered the whole fish to split and were provided to serving utensils. Just the normal drop off and walk away that seemed to be the norm at this place.

The views were great to watch the sunset over the sailboats. The service was slow and our waitress did not check in frequently.

We love the place because it is not noisy, the service is excellent as is the food. The view to the boat is very nice and there is plenty of parking. I hate writing a good review because then it will be crowded. It is a secret spot for us.

The food and service are always great. However, it is also always cold in the restaurant and I suggest you bring a coat or sweater, even in the summer. And the music in the bar is varied and enjoyable. I was celebrating a friend's birthday and they provided the most yummy cake for us to enjoy!

Luncheon for five in the Holiday Spirit was great. Menu spectrum satisfies all, preparation and presentation was super satisfying. The room, the surroundings and the staff make a place to visit often.

Will have to try it out again at lunch time. We went on a Sunday night and the dining room was almost empty. Staff seemed disorganized and not ready to do business. Salad was very lightly dressed and even watery. Main course of Salmon was excellent.

I was impressed by the diversity in the menu and wine list.

Overall, it was a wonderful experience at Humphrey's. From the beautiful dining adjacent to the water to the exquisite brunch spread, truely something I would recommend. Our server Laura was excellent. Attentive and warm throughout our stay. The only blemish on our afternoon was the fact that we were celebrating my daughter's 18th birthday and had requested a table with a view. I understand these are simply requests, but it would be greatly appreciated if they would be acknowledged at check in even if they are unable to be met. As for the birthday, a simple 'Happy Birthday!' would have sufficed. All in all, a pleasant afternoon. Thank you.

Beautiful views. Good food. But I felt like I should be in Las Vegas. Decor was a visual overload, average service. I was expecting more based on other reviews.

Humphrey's has one of the best brunches in San Diego. Great value for the money with many great food choices. You can't leave hungry. Great service with keeping your mimosa or other drinks topped off. Great view out the window as well. We went during a non holiday weekend Sunday and it was the same food as during a much more crowded holiday weekend.

Nah. Not worth the effort and expense. Waiting 10 minutes for someone to even acknowledge us arriving speaks volumes to the rest of the service. Just incredible the lack of training.
