    There was plenty of great food and with reservations, we were seated within 10 minutes of our time. For a huge buffet, it was delicious and plentiful! They kept items filled and hot, or cold... Seemed to have plenty of staff, we only had one problem when my husband ordered a glass of wine and it was never served, so he asked to make sure it wasn't on the tab. She did apologize and took it off of the bill. It was kind of expensive, but there was a wide variety of traditional and non traditional Thanksgiving food.

    Thanksgiving Dinner - staff provided unclean dinner plates and did not resolve the matter for at least 10 minutes while other diners were using these plates. People stood around buffet waiting for salad, mashed potatoes and gravy. Stuffing was watery. Turkey was in a serving dish floating in water. Very unappetizing and unsanitary. $85 for this?????

    We used to go here a lot before the pandemic, the first time back. The service was excellent and the food was good. The menu is greatly reduced [some of my favorites are gone} and the hot bread has changed to stale rolls and sadly no more creamed corn. Prime rib was wonderful and I enjoyed the biggest baked potato I have ever had. We will try it again in a few months and give them time to recover and maybe bring a few things back.

    A Hidden Gem. 94th Aero Squadron provides a restful setting (particularly for Sunday Brunch) to enjoy both your company and good food. It avoids the people and traffic chaos that typically accompanies more popular eating establishments located at downtown, Corona Island, or Del Mar.

    Brunch was great, lots of choices. Crab legs were poor, probably not restaurants fault. It was probably what was delivered to them. No meat inside legs (few flakey pieces). Other than the crab legs all was good with excellent service.

    Been the first time visiting, i can say i have had a great experience as my wife and I walked in. The noise level sold us in as we were enjoying the music and the decor around the entrance. Wait time was not more than 2-3 minutes as we were greeted and asked if this was our first time here. We were delighted with the options we had for the brunch that day as I was eager to just jump in and my wife was enjoying the site with the fixtures and wall art been shown there. we were seated as we felt like we were living in another era in time. Upon walking to the restroom, you can hear a speech by the appointed president talking about world WWI as i was been addressed of current events. I felt a bit of what the americans would have felt like hearing the radio in the wake of WWI. Overall experience was fantastic and would definitely come back on a weekday.

    Our dinner was not very enjoyable! The onion soup had no taste and seemed to be ‘watered down “, the lettuce wedge was not chilled and crispy, the salad dressing was so bad that we didn’t even eat it. The salmon was very good, even though it was slightly overcooked. The short ribs had a delicious flavor but they really skimped on the mashed potatoes(only gave about 6 tablespoons worth). Service was definitely below par! We needed a knife to eat the entree and I had to stand up and wave to the kitchen staff to get someone’s attention since there absolutely no servers, bus boys, anywhere in sight. Desert took over 15 minutes to get, although the waiter repeated our order to us twice during the wait. Unfortunately, the cheesecake was not worth waiting for! The cake was watery and didn’t taste like New York Cheesecake.

    They had a loud night club DJ 90s club music playing so load. People from night club walked over a just stood near fire pit which was In the middle of dining patio area and talked load right beside us. The food was terrible, we went during restaurant week , it was a set meal which was fine but, I got prime rib that I ordered med rare, it was cold when they brought it so I ate a few bite thinking I could dip it in Au jus to warm up but that was lukewarm as well. When the waitress finally came back, she took both plates and warmed them up making them well done which not what we wanted and it was bland. In addition, they served Instant mash potatoes. Salad was ok. The dessert was crème Brûlée and that was the only thing good. It was $50 per person which was not even close to being worth it. We left as fast as week could. We will never go again. The waitress did a good job and the issue we had was not her fault.

    This is a quiet cozy place to eat at I had the prime rib with garlic mashed potatoes and a salad. I had pineapple upside down cake. The food was good. They had plenty of parking so it was nice not to have to deal with the crazy downtown parking. I love the airplane theme at the restaurant. Our waiter Chris was the best.

    Overall good experience and good food. Although the back patio felt very cluttered. There were dirty dish bins left everywhere and there was a crate of glasses left on the fire fit the entire time. Seemed a little messy for such a cool place.
