Fantastic meal, superb view! Best birthday meal ever!
Enjoyed the view and ambiance. Food was a delight and the service good..
Great food, excellent service. Extraordinary Is of downtown SAN.
It was our first trip to San Diego and Tom Ham's did not disappoint on a fantastic meal, polite, helpful, and well timed service, and amazing ambience. It can be a bit noisy sitting out on the patio due to traffic in the bay but it's well worth it for the view. An experience I'd recommend for anyone visiting San Diego.
Other than a good view of the San Diego Harbor, food is ok - the service here is disappointing.
Server told us they are unable to provide virgin mix drinks because they don’t have a blender, no lattes either just regular and decaf. We ordered a whole chilled crab and requested to NOT serve it in a bed of ice - and was told that they can’t do that. That it had to be serve a plated by the kitchen staff. He served everything we ordered but not the crab. When asked, he said he thought we don’t want the crab anymore because they couldn’t serve how we were requesting it but if fact he asked us if we want whole or half order which we replied wehole. Ordered gelato and no spoon was serve with it, we have to ask him for the dessert spoon.
Celebrated our Aniversay and it was fabulous!! Environment was great and huge food selection that was on point.
I took my family there past Sunday for Sunday Brunch. When I made a reservation, I notated it's a celebration for my children's birthdays and anything they could do to make their day extra special but it wasn't acknowledged. 2 years ago when me and my husband went to the same Sunday Brunch for our anniversary and we had a little treat so I thought they would do the same this time but they didn't. That's a bid of a disappointment. But the kids enjoyed it. Me and my husband are not so much of the seafood so we basically just ate some omelette and desserts. The price has gone up to $54/pp plus service fee.
High noise levek
Wonderful location, great food and excellent service. We use Tom Ham's for special occasion Sunday Brunches. Thank you.
We had a wonderful brunch with excellent food , champagne flowing and incredible views !
It's fun to 'play the tourist' in your own home town! A lot of the diners enjoying a view of the spectacular moonrise over San Diego were from out-of-town. But we would certainly go back - that view doesn't get old, the food was good, and it's kinda fun to be surrounded by people who are so excited to be in San Diego!
The food and our server Eddie was amazing
The appetizers were excellent, however, the entrees were just okay. I’ll definitely continue to make Tom Ham’s a happy hour spot but would choose another venue for dinner.
Great service, good food and the outdoor terrace is the best thing to do.
The views are beautiful. The ambience is elegant and classic. The wait staff is accommodating and friendly. We were celebrating my brother’s promotion.
In three words - timeless, memorable, delicious
Wonderful view of the bay and downtown in the moonlight! Food very good but not exceptional. Clam chowder had too much bacon and a little sand. Chorizo in the clams with pasta detracted from the wonderful clams and pasta. Grilled yellowtail tuna was good. Orange cream gelato was great. Bar music detracted from the ambience.m in
Spectacular view. Superlative food and service.
Great views of San Diego Bay. We arrived while it as still light and by the time we left it was dark. Both views of the city skyline were impressive. We dined outside and enjoyed the sounds of the water. Many choices on the seafood menu - I had the yellow tail. Everyone in our party of four said they liked their food selection.
Terrific waitress. Loved the quinoa/watermelon salad. Very nice outdoor seating.
Roger M did not provide good service for our lunch. Very disappointed because this is one of our favorite restaurants. We ordered the ceviche app, and he brought it AFTER the main course. And the fish of the day was too oily.
Amazing views, outstanding service and delicious food!
This is one of my favorite restaurants in all of San Diego. It has some of the best water views of any restaurant and the food and service are always top notch. We were celebrating a milestone birthday on this occasion and the waiter brought a special dessert for the birthday girl...another nice touch!!
Great service, beautiful view on the patio at sunset. Raw bar feast was delicious!
After years of going here for special occasions, we were a bit disappointed this time. We often had dirty dishes sitting on the table, and never had a bowl for the lobster claw debris. We usually tip 20% but didn't this time. Service just wasn't what we've come to expect.
Awesome as always! A great setting.
Good as usual. Never disappointed at Tom Ham's. The food was great and the view was one of the best. San Diego Classic
It was awesome! The seafood platter is an awesome value. We bought two orders of the chefs selection for the oysters and our favorite was the sweet petite!
Great lunch and beautiful view. Both of us had a lobster roll.
Near the top in terms of spectacular skyline views across the harbor. Good food and excellent service are a bonus.
Arrived they didn’t know about our reservation. Food took a very long time to be served no bread offerings prior to us arriving. Despite there was hardly anyone at the restaurant dining. Location and view was AMAZING!
Our waiter was friendly, efficient and recommended a great dish which we absolutely loved.
We had a table right next to a window and had a fabulous view of the harbor. Our waiter checked on us frequently and made my birthday celebration fantastic.
From Vermont where we live with a view up Lake Memphremagog into Canada to San Diego and Tom Hams Lighthouse. A very cool contrast. From rural and no need of a wall to the absolute interception of food, culture, money and sunshine. We had Maine scallops, PEI mussels, oysters, beef. If you can blend the senses and appreciation about the best. This was the best for me!!! You will want to come back for the view, the view, the view...….excuse me I am perseverating… the view. Why did we not go there earlier??? Everyone was fantastic!
One of my favorite locations in San Diego with gorgeous views and sublime food.
Best seafood in San Diego and amazing views
This is one of our favorite restaurants in SD! You can't beat the beautiful view! We were there for lunch and sat on the outside patio. Ordered some oysters on the half shell, and shared the Fish & Chips and the Crab Louie Salad. All the food was delicious! My husband dared to try the famous Bali Hai Mai Tai and he loved it (but only had one!) and I had the Island Sunset which was also refreshing and tasty.
Server seemed too busy- while we enjoyed our time: orders where wrong- food order taken 10 min after appetizer was already eaten- drinks not refilled timely. Food was great
Great food, great ambience, great service, great view of San Diego Bay. The only downside was that the A/C did not work so it was a little warm and humid inside in the dining room.
Food was horrible. Calamari was grease an had chunks of breading from some other fish. Clams an pasta tasted horrible, no let me change that it had no flavor an was watery with 6 clams the size of a penny. The scallops were dry an cold. Overall this was my worst dining experience in years.
Another amazing Brunch at Tom Hams Lighthouse! This is our go-to-place for brunch and special occasions. The Cold Bar of Crab, Lobster, Oysters, Shrimp and Scallops is our favorite. The Prime Rib was perfect as well. A brunch lesson I learned years ago is grab a dessert on every trip to the buffet so you aren't too full to enjoy after the meal.
Great customer service, great view, great food and great friends.
