    Terrible waitress. She came over, got a drink order - then didn’t return for 20 minutes. We got 2 out of three drinks and the last drink came after our food did and it was supposed to be a glass of wine. She came back 3 different times with 3 different drinks and not one of them was correct. We told her to just forget about that drink because we were almost done with our food by that point. All the other servers seemed great and really capable so we were just really disappointed. I understand some people could be new but then I wouldn’t put them in the busiest section so they don’t get too overwhelmed. I don’t know if she was new but no one came over to see if we were satisfied or anything. For the price of this place we expected much better service.

    The server wasn’t super into helping us. Took our order, we ordered two drinks and a dozen oysters to start. Came back and dropped 6 oysters and 1 drink off and didn’t say anything. He came back to check on us after a half hour and by that point we had decided to go eat next door at dos santos, which was amazing! We used to come to humboldt weekly but it just isn’t what it used to be, the last 3 times I have been the service lacked (which is where they previously excelled, maybe he was new and just needed training but to get 2/3 of our order wrong without checking just doesn’t work for me.

    For some reason we were placed in the back even though it wasn’t that busy. That area was very hot and we figured it would cool down and didn’t realize how bad it was until we left and walked through the very comfortable main area. Service was a bit off. When our food got delivered they didn’t put down the food for one of our party who was in the restroom neither did they ask if there was a 4th person. They simply took the food away and we had to hunt it down. Strange! Other than that the food was solid, the coffee is great and our server was kind and well-intentioned.

    Food and selection was good however, the kitchen was behind and food took quite awhile to come out. When it did finally come, both brunch dishes we had came with out the eggss...Eggs Benedict and Steak and Eggs and they forgot the eggs. Wasn't that big of a deal they did get them for us. That combined with the long wait time for the food we thought they would buy us a drink or take an app off the bill. But no compensation was offered. I would still give it another try.

    The Humboldt has delicious food, especially any of the fish dishes, and outstanding service in spite of the crowd on a Friday evening. We didn't feel at all rushed, nor neglected. Staff strikes the perfect balance. This was out second time there and once again, we enjoyed it immensely.

    Visited with my wife last night for our anniversary. The building, atmosphere, and interior design is wonderful. Very tasteful. It wasn’t too busy so it was nice that we could hear each other talk, though I imagine it could be considerably noisier when full. Our cocktails were great and didn’t skimp. The food was decent though not remarkable and not an especially good deal. The cheese on my steak sandwich resembled Easy Cheese and the side of fries was droopy, not crispy and hot. Honestly on balance I probably would enjoy a McDonald’s meal as much or more. Our server was pleasant but not particularly well trained, or just not engaged. Our entrees arrived before our salads indicating that they were forgotten about so we had to ask for those. The server did not return after the food was served to ask if everything was OK. We were not offered a second round of drinks. She did not wipe the table down after a messy appetizer. On our way out we passed by her and she didn’t acknowledge us. Overall I’m not inspired to return but I think others should go see for themselves.

    Great service. My main complaint would be that there weren't enough "breakfast-y" options on the appetizer menu. The apps menu was mostly lunch/dinner stuff that was good. Would have benefitted from a meat/cheese or pastry plate. The food was great, portions awesome. Love the space!

    Not as special as the price tag. I had the sole and it was good but the sole tasted like fish with Panco with no seasoning (it was cooked perfectly) but the grilled tomatoes on the side were the best part of the meal. My wife's seared tuna salad was ok. Unfortunately our cocktails were served about half way through our meal, not a huge deal but it is nice to get them before eating, when you are conversing with friends.

    Excellent Mother's Day Brunch. We really enjoyed all of our menu selections, and the service was excellent. We loved our corner, round table which was perfect for our group. Those with difficulty hearing might consider it a bit loud due to location near the kitchen, but we felt it was great. The menu itself was diverse and had a little something for all tastes and dietary considerations. Seating was fast, service was prompt and all requests were addressed immediately. I look forward to returning.
