    Been the first time visiting, i can say i have had a great experience as my wife and I walked in. The noise level sold us in as we were enjoying the music and the decor around the entrance. Wait time was not more than 2-3 minutes as we were greeted and asked if this was our first time here. We were delighted with the options we had for the brunch that day as I was eager to just jump in and my wife was enjoying the site with the fixtures and wall art been shown there. we were seated as we felt like we were living in another era in time. Upon walking to the restroom, you can hear a speech by the appointed president talking about world WWI as i was been addressed of current events. I felt a bit of what the americans would have felt like hearing the radio in the wake of WWI. Overall experience was fantastic and would definitely come back on a weekday.

    Our dinner was not very enjoyable! The onion soup had no taste and seemed to be ‘watered down “, the lettuce wedge was not chilled and crispy, the salad dressing was so bad that we didn’t even eat it. The salmon was very good, even though it was slightly overcooked. The short ribs had a delicious flavor but they really skimped on the mashed potatoes(only gave about 6 tablespoons worth). Service was definitely below par! We needed a knife to eat the entree and I had to stand up and wave to the kitchen staff to get someone’s attention since there absolutely no servers, bus boys, anywhere in sight. Desert took over 15 minutes to get, although the waiter repeated our order to us twice during the wait. Unfortunately, the cheesecake was not worth waiting for! The cake was watery and didn’t taste like New York Cheesecake.

    They had a loud night club DJ 90s club music playing so load. People from night club walked over a just stood near fire pit which was In the middle of dining patio area and talked load right beside us. The food was terrible, we went during restaurant week , it was a set meal which was fine but, I got prime rib that I ordered med rare, it was cold when they brought it so I ate a few bite thinking I could dip it in Au jus to warm up but that was lukewarm as well. When the waitress finally came back, she took both plates and warmed them up making them well done which not what we wanted and it was bland. In addition, they served Instant mash potatoes. Salad was ok. The dessert was crème Brûlée and that was the only thing good. It was $50 per person which was not even close to being worth it. We left as fast as week could. We will never go again. The waitress did a good job and the issue we had was not her fault.

    This is a quiet cozy place to eat at I had the prime rib with garlic mashed potatoes and a salad. I had pineapple upside down cake. The food was good. They had plenty of parking so it was nice not to have to deal with the crazy downtown parking. I love the airplane theme at the restaurant. Our waiter Chris was the best.

    Delicious meal among friends. We visited tonight for an early dinner, getting together for ones birthday. Two of us had the early bird meal with prime rib and one had French onion soup & 94th ceaser salad. I started with a cup of the mushroom bisque. So good! My friend had a small ceaser salad. Both really enjoyed the salads. The steaks were delicious, seasoned just right, very tender. We both had mashed potatoes that were good. We enjoyed the orange sherbet for dessert. Love the 94th and we hadn't been there for years. Hope to be back soon!

    Birthday Weekend Dinner. Wife’s Oppa (fish) was super well done/overcooked. Prime Rib was cool when delivered to table. Ambiance was great and very cool set up. Server was fantastic. Price to the quality/value of food does not match. Chef needs a big upgrade in training for the restaurant to charge 40-70 dollars a plate.

    This is 2nd time here. 2nd time I ate and chicken was undercooked. And birthday man porkchop was overcooked. We paid and left. Waiter was amazing and gracious. Left him tip. Idk maybe cook was about to close due to club but very disappointing experience after giving it another chance. I wish you all the best during these challenging times...

    I'm convinced everything came from the costco freezer section. The omelets were pre-made. When I ordered the grabbed a skillet with eggs already done added my fillings stuck it in the oven to melt the cheese and gave it to me. The food definitely doesn't justify the $65 price.

    For many years 94th has been our go-to restaurant. Post covid and ^inflation we have to rethink this. I had the halibut on an unusual bed of fruit salad. It was a glorious new experience and I loved it. However, we were seated up and away from the windows. The 94th has always had subdued lighting but yesterday where we were, it was annoyingly dark. Barely could see at all. The wait staff brought 3 ineffective lights. You need to really do something better! The thing that severely annoyed my husband who was celebrating his 89th birthday is that there were no bread plates until way late in the game. He was so upset he did not even eat his dinner. He was using the napkin as a plate to catch crumbs on the table.

    Ordered Prime Rib. Cut of meat was excellent and tasty but served cool. Mashed potatoes like library paste... clearly just mashed with no butter, milk etc. Horseradish was mixed with mayo instead of sour cream. Not like a normal visit here. Usually everything is excellent. So many restaurants in San Diego have had problems returning to their previous standard of food quality. It's like they're hiring short order chefs instead of "real" chefs.

    It was great to go back to an old place & celebrate my friends birthday. The halibut & prime rib were great! The service was very good and the waiter Kris was very patient with all of my special diet questions and even found me a gluten-free bun. It was great to read about the squadron's actual WWI history.

    We celebrated a dear friends birthday with 7 of us in the lovely gazebo in the garden surrounded by roses and tropical flowers. We all had the Early Flight Special (4-6pm) and we’re delighted with our delicious three course dinners. The prime rib was excellent!! You can’t find a lovelier venue for a romantic dinner or celebration in the area.
