This place is open for dinner. I had the ahi. No kidding. The best ahi in my life. And I eat ahi a couple of times a week. My favorite place in San Diego for 20 years. I'm a Texan but when I'm in San Diego I come here if at all possible.

On January 4th, my parents went to Humphrey's to celebrate their 64th wedding anniversary. Dena went above and beyond to make it special! She gave them a special table as they are hard of hearing and shut the door so a nearby conference would not disturb them. She gave them each a special dessert, took photos of them and was... More

The restaurant and service felt like something out of a time capsule. The staff were friendly and well intentioned, but did not have a full grasp on the menu or how to manage customers at a restaurant that clearly wanted to be high end. The food was a mixed bag as well, as some of it was presented almost as... More

This is a breakfast review. Ate breakfast here and it was fabulous. Great service, great food, and great decor. Little pricey, but definitely worth a visit. Recommend for adults.

This was one of the first places we visited when starting our trips to San Diego years ago. Now that we live nearby, it’s extra special to us. The food is always good and the atmosphere is a classy but relaxed marina restaurant. Lovely place for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The only negative I can offer is that service is... More

Very nice staff. Our bartender, Stefan, is the best. If you have a cold or flu, order a Mexican Flu shot. Your ails will be cured! Plus the brunch was top notch!

This restaurant is a bit outside the city center, we took a taxi here. We enjoyed a dinner and it was perfect. Really great service (Cyndy). Food was excellent, I enjoyed Scallops as a main cource and they were absolutely delicious.

I found this establishment clean, with appropriate staff and very busy. The regular Sunday Morning Jazz Campaign Brunch is a crowd pleaser, requiring reservations. San Diego sparkles in the morning air as the backdrop host for this very nice restaurant and jazz club. Needless to say I will patronize this establishment again, finding it as delightful as the food and... More
