Amazing view. The crab Louie was outstanding and the fish and chips abundant
Great food, better wine, and the BEST view from the patio!
Great food, great view and wonderful service, call ahead to request a window seat.
Great brunch as always. We were fortunate enough to have Carlos as our waiter again, he is the best
We arrived early for our 9:45 brunch reservation and were seated right away, being given an option for indoor or outdoor seating. We were fortunate to be seated under a large umbrella, however the sun was still pounding. We asked to be moved but then changed our minds and the staff was so very accommodating and nice even after we changed our minds. The food was plentiful with much variety and it was flavorful. Our only issue was perhaps our waiter was not as experienced as he did not frequent our table nor did he ever bus dishes from our table when he came by to check on us. Two tables down we saw their waitress come by repeatedly and bused many empty plates and brought them additional drinks. From seeing the service they received vs what we received, we felt that our experience here was mediocre. Sunday brunch is an exceptional value here with endless flowing champagne and fresh squeezed orange juice.
Friends from out of state. We loved everything we ordered.
The service and ambience was outstanding. My lobster roll was very good, as always, but the brisket was very tough. Both my husband and our guest said they would never order it again.
What a wonderful dinner. The view is amazing and the food was excellent. To top it off we got to watch a spectacular fireworks show at Petco Park. What a fun night!
Had a brilliant lunch here with our two boys - ages 6 and 9. Grilled salmon on kids menu made a great change from the usual kids fare! Amazing views across the bay to the San Diego skyline. Service was excellent as was the food. Would definitely recommend.
Our first visit. The wow was the view from our table outside next to the glass railing.
Our server was good.
The food was not that good. My chicken was very dry, as we my husband’s fish special. The others in our group rated their meals from ok to good.
The interior dining area of this restaurant needs a big overhaul. It’s one huge dining room w/out any dividers. Quite frankly, it looked like a mess hall!!
Would be great for a huge wedding party. But, there is another room I saw which could be used for “banquets.” I was not wowed, and therefore, will not return.
Great food & service A+
Birthday dinner with friends
One meal was excellent, the other was slightly below average.
Awesome! Loved the ambiance, service, & food. The calamari was super delicious!
Great view of the San Diego skyline. Slow but good service. Food was good. Prices about what you expect. 50 pp.
Excellent value. Outstanding views. Good food.
Loive it. Twelve of us are looking forward to the "Parade of Lights" on December 16 at table 72.
July 4th and perfect view!
Fabulous views, delicious food, excellent service.
Very noisy set of families. Nothing that the restaurant had control over
Been going here for years and love the place. I was disappointed today because when we were getting another round of food, when we came back to our table - our table was cleared and cleaned out. Granted it was the last call, I still had my purse and jacket there to indicate that we were going back to our table. I just thought that was kind of rude. So I just decided to take the next table. That was rude.
great ambiance but food was marginal at best no flavor in either the paella or the fish of the day all rather bland
On June 30th my husband and I had a delightful evening eating dinner at Tom Ham’s Lighthouse. Although we sat outside and it was pretty cold, it did not detract from the excellent meal. We shared an appetizer of calamari which was delicious, crispy and came with a delicious dipping sauce. We agreed it might have been the best calamari we have eaten. My main course was a special for the day, a yellowtail, that was perfectly prepared and came with delicious roasted vegetables. My husband had bouillabaisse in a most delicious broth that he ate with the sourdough bread which was crusty and warm. Our excellent dinner coupled with very attentive staff made our decision to return at a later date very easy.
Tom Hams never disappoints. I always bring my visitors here!
Food was disappointing. Fish & Chips we’re heavily battered (the fish, that is) and must have come from a mediocre frozen food supplier. A colleague had salmon which was not to her liking. Other colleague added shrimp to her salad and received only 6-7 shrimp for inflated price. Definitely not worth it. A neighboring table ordered burgers which looked great. If I return, I might try a burger. But really, why go to a fine dining establishment for a burger?
Service was not special. Not bad but not great. Not memorable. The view with our patio seating was memorable. That was the best part of our experience. We weren’t rushed either. Since this was a business lunch, we could wrap up our conversation before getting ushered out.
Great view of the water! Beautiful.
We made reservations for this restaurant for our last night of vacation while in San Diego. This was a great find, and we both would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a perfect, romantic dinner.
I was in San Diego on business for a few days, and dined at Tom Ham's with friends. We sat outdoor, and the view was spectacular. Another restaurant claims to have the best view of San Diego, but I can tell you that the view from Tom Ham's is the best.
Our server was great. She took care of us without being intrusive.
The food...good, but not better than good. I had the paella. It was good, but not the best I have ever had. It needed more flavor.
We had a pleasant experience, but I can only rate the food as good.
The view is to kill for, but the quality of food is sub-par.
Had to ask for the whole fish to be cooked twice and then it was still red.. so we just did not eat it.. we had two orders of this.. Waitress ask me what I wanted to drink.. but never asked my wife what she wanted to drink. Very disappointing and confusing.. the first three times I ate here it was great. But not this time
It was a great time. Loved the seafood platter appetizer, great view, drinks, food and service.
We arrived early for our reservation so that we could enjoy Happy Hour in the bar and the view. . . what a view! We then moved into the dining room were seated for dinner at a corner window table with sweeping views. Our waiter, Davor was excellent. He was attentive, extremely knowledgeable about the wine list and menu. The scallops were delicious but rich, so we balanced them out with a simple salad.
The food was average, but the atmosphere and setting were great.
This was a wonderful experience in all respects!
I hadn't be to Tom Ham's Lighthouse in years. Two friends and I were in San Diego for a wedding and I suggested we revisit the restaurant and see if it was as good as I remembered. It lived up to my recollection! The food and drinks were excellent. We ordered the Grilled Asparagus, Cheese Plate, Bouillabaisse (2), Pan Seared Maine Diver Scallops, and Rye Manhattans. The waiter was courteous and efficient. He answered all our questions and we were very happy with his recommendations. As always, the views were spectacular and lights from downtown topped off everything. Definitely will go back when I'm in town.
So disappointed with the food
Got some colleagues together for a business dinner here. Wonderful views of the bay, combined with delicious food and an extensive, but not overwhelming, beer and wine menu. Service was excellent. I also appreciated the spacing between tables. Many times, restaurants try to pack in more tables to increase their profitability, resulting in a ruined ambience. Tom Ham’s lighthouse did not do that, resulting in a more spacious and laid back atmosphere.
As always, the food was great. Our server, Ally, was wonderful. Attentive to our needs, friendly, and professional.
Our first anniversary was recognized by the staff with selecting the sweetheart table which was a huge surprise. I teared up at the view of the harbor. Breathtaking! Our service was beyond amazing, food delicious, and we even had dolphins swim by before sunset. 5 star experience. The surprise cake at the end of dinner earned them an extra star! Thank you so much for an unforgettable evening.
