    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

    We both had Scallops, they were not cooked the same we had 1 cooked perfect 2 undercooked didn't have the same sear on them. The risotto was good, but the summer vegetables consisted of 1 thin slice of carrot. Service was good beautiful view.

    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 had a nice sunday family breakfast here. The food was amazing, the little touch of a grilled tomato on all the breakfast entrees was great! The menu is a little overpriced for breakfast, but you are really paying for the amazing view and ambiance. Service was great, but a little slow.

    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. Thanks for the memories!!!!!

    I made reservations remembering how Humphry's Sunday Brunch use to be. Humphry's now is too quiet, the service is slow, and the food selection is limited. I do hope they plan to get back to the good old days when Humphry's was the place to be on Sunday , Good food and good music

    I have always loved Humphreys brunch, but I was so disappointed for the Father’s Day brunch. The selection wasn’t great and the food was cold. This was supposed to be a nice Father’s Day brunch but no one enjoyed it and I felt bad. It was not worth the price at all and quite sad as this was always my favorite brunch.

    I haven’t been to the Humphrey’s Sunday brunch in years and I was so disappointed. I came for Father’s Day and was expecting the same food and service that I once had years ago but things have definitely changed here and I will not be coming back. The food selection seemed a little smaller and the food was not so tasty at all, I only enjoyed 2 items I tried out of the selection. The only food items I enjoyed was French toast and ribs. The prime rib was cold, omelette had no seasoning, and several other items just tasted bad/old for example the cheese and the salmon lox I literally spit out. I didn’t even bother trying the desserts after because I was so grossed out. Our server was pretty nice but was not very attentive and it took us 20 minutes to receive the bill. We ordered drinks before we went to get our food and when we sat back down we still didn’t have our drinks. It wasn’t until we almost finished our plate that we received our drinks. When we finished and were ready to go we asked for the check, our server looked at us and nodded. 15 minutes goes by and we watch her helping everyone else. We asked a busser if he could ask our server for the check. When our server finally comes over to us and she asks us if we need anything we have to ask once again if we can please get our bill. At this point we’ve waited 20 minutes for our bill and we’ve been disgusted by the food so it just was not a good experience especially on Father’s Day. I want to add that not all tables were sat, so it wasn’t a situation where it was a very busy day/time and maybe that’s why it was an off experience. We came around 1 so I think if there was a rush it had already passed. Definitely not worth the 70$ ish per person plus drinks.
