    I have to be honest, I really do not enjoy writing bad reviews on a classic establishment that has been around so long. I had never been to the 94th for brunch but heard it was good. Oh my god was it not very good! Scrambled eggs by taste and texture were powdered, bacon really salty, most everything was no better than luke warm. They did have a decent selection but nothing I wanted to go back for seconds. The Beef Roast was absolute shoe leather. I watched a worker stocking the desert bar, putting out bottles of Flan out of the box they bought it in. Now on the good side, our server was really great although she had way too many tables. The champagne was not good but that is to be expected, we did get plenty of that to make up for the food! On the good side. The crab was ok, the eggs benedict tasted pretty good and the pork sausage was tasty. Sorry we cannot recommend anyone going here for the brunch.

    I was so disappointed with our visit here. We have eaten there dozens of times over the past 7 years. The time before this visit was mediocre but this visit was abysmal. The roast beef was so far over cooked I could barely even cut it. The scrambled eggs were definitely powdered eggs. At $60 a plate I expected much better. We won’t be back.

    Place was empty except one other couple on the patio. We arrived at 430 pm We were originally seated outside but after 10 minutes or so , no one had approached us. We then asked to be moved inside. Our Server was nice but being new , didn't know the menu very well. Food was good but not outstanding for the price. My soup was good but my fillet wasn't even hot enough to melt the butter. I had put on reservation we were celebrating our 48th anniversary. I wish we had gone somewhere else

    Overall, 94th is a beautiful restaurant. I love sitting outside and enjoying the view. However, the quality of the food has gone waaaay down. The eggs benny were awful- the English muffin wasn’t even toasted. The frozen chicken tenders and egg rolls made no sense, the mahi was bland and undercooked, some of the food was very salty, the desserts didn’t look like they were made in the restaurant anymore… just terrible food. It’s unfortunate because we love this restaurant and we hope the owners are listening to customer reviews. For the increased price, I really hope they make an effort to make good food again. I would hate to lose such a gem in San Diego.

    My family and I have been coming here for years. Whether it’s a hot date with the Mrs., or a family meal, this place does not disappoint. When my kids were younger, the chef would purposely do those little fireball flareups in the kitchen to keep them entertained. That, and the ability to hear the air traffic control tower of the adjacent airport on headsets was a real treat for the kids. Now that they’re older they’re paying more attention to the old Word War artifacts and pictures all over the place. It really is something to see. The food is just a little pricey, but so worth it! It really is that good. They have Friday night hip-hop for those times when you want to go out and party or sit and relax in the nice and quiet dinning area. They also have Sunday brunch that out does itself. The staff are polite, warm, and know their stuff. All around, this is a great place. Come dressed up, or come casual, this place does not disappoint.

    So glad to have this restaurant back! We enjoyed Mother’s Day Brunch on Sunday and had a delicious assortment of fresh fish and seafood! 84th Aero Squadron Restaurant is well known for its Sunday brunch so it was a sell out crowd but the staff handled it all with grace and humor. Add wonderful champagne or Mimosa’s and a small gift bottle of champagne for everyone to take home it made for a very Happy Mother’s Day for this Mom!

    Mother’s Day 2022 with 1345 resets for party of 4: Terrible management of reservations, awful, sub-par quality of food. Kitchen could NOT keep up with demand. For $80/person, our party had Costco appetizers and bland, bottom of the barrel scraps in the food warmers. Our server did his best. Overbooking by management. Overall quality has really hit rock bottom. Will not return.

    Mother's Day brunch was a flop, and my wife was upset! Our reservations were not honored due to poor front desk management. So many people were forced to wait 30-40 minutes out front in a line with nobody to explain or just inform us. Once inside the food quality was marginal to good but serving trays are found empty and not warm food. When issues became problems for me, it was pointed out to management and was corrected.

    It was a horrible experience. Our waiter ignored us, the food was cold and not restocked for the Mother’s Day buffet, we were seated outside after waiting a long time(we had reservations) and our table was short a chair, we had to go borrow a chair from another table, ourselves, and ask the people seated if it would be alright. We had cold scrambled eggs and bread and some other cold items that were unremarkable. We left an all you can eat buffet hungry because there was not enough food, they were out of things and no one was restocking. A patron next to us asked a waiter if they could help him and the waiter told him no, I’m not your waiter and walked off. The staff was rude, I will never be returning. It was a horrible horrible experience. To top it off, we were charged $80 per person. It was a ridiculous price for an absolutely awful experience.

    Our server was good. Unfortunately, the poor kid who was by himself at the check in desk was overwhelmed with checking in and setting guests. He should have gotten some help managing the long line. We've eaten Sunday brunch here before woth no issues but regardless if it was Mother's day, management did a horrible job of planning foe this day. There were guests that were scraping off of what was left of food. Food was not properly replenished and a lot of people were waiting for food. It was so bad that the carving station was only giving small pieces to people trying to make the Prime Rib last for other customers. The dessert area was poorly displayed and looked half hazardly. I dont remember it ever looking like that during brunch. For the price paid it was not worth it. I'm sure due to the shut down and possible new management and under staffing, it would helped the restaurant and customer experience if they planned properly and limited reservation and capacity.

    The $80 price + auto tip was too high for the lack of service and food availability on Mother’s Day. We bussed our table ourselves. Servers were spread too thin and exhausted, and apologized for repeated delays. Management was non/existent.
