Outstanding food, service, and an incredible view!
Fabulous view! Great food
Perfect night. Food was great. A bit pricy but good. Nice venue. Will return soon
Food was mediocre (paella very salty, bouillabaise just a few piecees of seafood dumped in an uanappetizing tomato base. Waiter didn't offer bread, or coffee with dessert, brought entrees before we finished appetizers (clam chowder was lukewarm). Not a great birthday dinner, views were great, though.
Food was excellent delicious in every way service a little slow
Food was great, service was very attentive. Will be coming back soon
Although I didn’t remember the name of our server, he was outstanding. My wife and I will definitely stop by again.
We celebrated Father's Day for my husband and he was in seafood heaven . We all loved the meal selection . Raymond was our server and he was warm and attentive . The venue is very ADA friendly !
Service wasn’t good. Dessert was terrible— wouldn’t go back.
Allie was an amazing server!
Food: depends on the dish. Branzino and its accompaniment, delicious. Paella, awful - it’s not paella. Clam pasta, ok. Calamari, good but sauce was not a good match.
Service: very nice
Staff is accommodating
If you’re looking for great seafood this is the place. All the food was fantastic. Service was great; the staff was very attentive without hovering and offered to take pictures of our group. Beautiful view of the bay. Love the Bali Hai Mai Tai - enjoyable to sip throughout the entire meal.
The food was generally good. The Cesar salad could have used a little more dressing. The whole fish was very tasty and the catch of the was good. Desert was just ok. The wine was good and the service was excellent. Now we come to the bill which ruined the dinner the cost was $130 then they get picky add a $3.90 surcharge supposedly to pay the kitchen staff the higher minimum wage. Just raise the prices a dollar on the main course and the drinks. We won't return
Great food. Great service. Great view. Loved it!
Brunch was incredible! Can’t wait to come back.
The only issue I had during my first time with the Sunday brunch was the line for the buffet. I wish there were two lines (you can access food on both sides instead of one side only).
Best food, best service we've ever had! We'll be going back the next time we are in San Diego.
Breath-taking view and delicious food. Outstanding service and friendly staff.
Always the first choice for a celebration, to bring friends who are visiting from out of town, or just for a fabulous meal with an amazing view.
This was soooo great sat outside on tthe water. Watched the dolphins play Ryan was our server and he was super great ask for him but they are all great have a bar food was fantatic. We started with the mussels. And both had paella amazing and finished with chocolate mousse cake and cream brulee. If you visit around San Diego you reallly should not miss out on the lighthouse you definitely would regret it for sure im from Texas and would comeback just to bring my family its that good
As always they impress. It was loud in main dining area, thank goodness the weather was amazing so we ate brunch on the patio with their timeless view. The staff clearing the tables had a bit of a mishap, stepped on a cup of desert that fell off the tray and it blew up all over my long black skirt. The poor gentleman apologized profusely as he attempted to clean the custard off the ground and offered a napkin for my skirt. Accidents happen. I think he felt bad because not 20 minutes before, and within minutes of my husband and i sitting down, the table behind us spilled their mimosa which also found its way onto my skirt. It didn’t ruin my morning, nor did i gripe about it, as i totally understand how busy it is and every part of my outfit was washable. Our waiter came right over apologized again, and when he brought our bill an hour later, my $54 brunch was comped! What a kind gesture, and i was truly appreciative, though totally unnecessary. Another reason we love this place! The professional staff and service never ceases to impress.
The buffet was well worth it! Carlos was my waiter and he was very friendly and attentive! I will be sure to come by anytime I visit San Diego again!
We were celebrating a birthday and the waiter brought us cake with a candle! Nobody had even asked, they just did it. The waiter was super friendly and helpful. The food was great, we had an indoor window table, beautiful view, great service. We had a service dog and no issues or questions at all for her. Fantastic place!
Love this place! Highly recommend. Wish brunch was more days
One of the best places to sit on the patio and enjoy a good meal with beautiful views of San Diego and the bay. Loved the grilled corn and asparagus salad too!
Not only was the food delicious, but our waiter (a nice young man) was stellar. Kudos to Tom Ham's Lighthouse!
It was a great experience. Great view, great food and staffs.
Place was recommended to me by some friends. It is definitely the place to go for celebrations and special occasions as the view and ambiance are hard to beat. However, the menu and food were good, just not great. Been once but not sure I’d come again unless given a reason.
Celebration of my granddaughter’s year end recital.
Very good food, service was excellent, great location.
Although it was a very busy Sunday brunch service, our waitress’ Diana was amazing.
beautiful view and amazing scene. Would definitely recommend for a fancy date night!
Went for a pleasant dinner with my wife. The drinks, food, and service we're great. We were seated at their sweetheart table looking at the bay for sunset, outstanding. The only downside was the bass coming from the DJ at the wedding downstairs, it raised the noise floor in the restaurant.
Great food and such a breathtaking view, that we came back again today for drinks!
The perfect place for lunch in San Diego! From the to die for views of the downtown San Diego Skyline and San Diego bay, to the professional and helpful servers, and the amazing food, it is the perfect place for a business lunch, gathering with friends, or impressing your out of town guests. When the weather is nice (when isn't it in San Diego?) request a table outside and enjoy watching the boats and jet skis on San Diego Bay. You can't go wrong with lunch, brunch or dinner at Tom Hams!
I visit Tom Ham's several times a year, and have never been disappointed. Always take out of town friends there. A special place!
Tom Hams is one of our favorite San Diego restaurants. We had an OpenTable reservation, but had difficulty being seated due to many large parties. We were seated in a booth for 6 people but they did not seat anyone else there - one of the few good things... Our dinners were very good and the bottle of J Chardonnay was excellent. Our server was spread pretty thin - so the manager stopped by frequently. Our view of SD was great, but it was my husband's b-day (noted in the reservation) and it was not even mentioned. I still DO recommend Tom Hams. DO have a reservation! GO early for a better experience...
We had an excellent experience celebrating the graduation of our daughter from college. The service and food were excellent. We all enjoyed our time there
Beautiful views, great menu. Definitely recommend this restaurant.
This was our second time for Sunday brunch. We came last year and it was phenomenal so we had to come back. Crazy thing was, we had our same waiter as before and he was just as great! The service is excellent and the food is delicious!!
