94th Aero Squadron - San Diego Ratings and Reviews
Needed a place to take family visiting from Canada. They had a little one that was tuckered out from Legoland, so we needed a dining venue that was not frenetic. Aero Squadron delivered. The adults had a delicious prime rib dinner with dessert. Their child continued to snooze in comfort in his stroller.
The visitors commented on the ambiance of the venue as it was an WW1 farmhouse that was right by Montgomery Field airport. There are actual planes onsite and lots of memorabilia. Headphones hang conveniently by your table where you can listen in on the transmissions from the control tower.
My daughter told me that Sunday brunch was excellent here, too, as a variety of food choices are offered.
The atmosphere feels almost like you are in a museum, with all the memorabilia from the World War I era. The food was great. I like how everyone gets a side dish of creamed corn, regardless of which entree you ordered. All in all, a fine dining spot, excellent food and a quiet calm atmosphere.
I have been here many times and have always come away with a satisfied feeling. This visit was different in that it seems there has been a change in the kitchen staff and the usual degree of attention to detail in the food is now lacking. My wife's Scampi dish came to the table barely lukewarm and instead of remaking the dish the correct way the kitchen staff simply threw it into the microwave, nuked it, replated it in a new dish and served gummy pasta and rubbery shrimp.
I am heading out of town and would be away from home for Mother's Day. I wanted to do a early Mother's Day brunch for my wife before leaving. The 94th was recommended by a friend. I went on line to make reservation and the slots were filling up quickly. We caught the 12:30 pm brunch slot. Check in was shortly after my reservation due to the crowd but my wife didn't like the location of our table. I informed the check in person at the front desk. She indicated we would need to wait a few minutes for another table. A table was available shortly after. The waiter was very friendly and attentive. The food was very good. We had to make sure we didn't overeat from all the great choices. Our glass was never empty from champagne. There were few other groups that were there for early mother's day meal also. Overall it was had a great atmosphere, delicious food and excellent customer service. I would recommend 94th to friends.
This is my favorite restaurant by far. However the last 2 visits have been sub-par, albeit perhaps more due to bad luck than anything else. On this visit, we were seated in a window seat on the east end of the restaurant. The club music from the disco was so loud, I could not even hear the "house" WWI-style Jazz music that I love so much. We asked to move to the opposite end (west end) of the restaurant, which they complied. The music was much better, but now we were seated next to a table with a lady whose voice was so loud and carried so far, we couldn't hardly hear ourselves throughout our entire meal, and instead got treated to a rundown of this woman's life. I did request they turn the music up, which evidently they did, although I did not hear much of a difference. The food was not as good as usual, however, I'm sure that was more due to my ordering the gluten-free pasta rather than the regular. The rest of the meal was amazing as usual. I was treated to a dessert for my birthday, which was nice. Our server was quite nice as well. I think my biggest complaint is that stupid nightclub. It's loud, obnoxious, aggressive and could not be more opposite of the intended décor and ambiance for which the restaurant is famous. And I was highly unimpressed with the security guards/bouncers outside the door. I waited in the lobby for a few moments for my husband to get the car, and the bouncers were chatting with each other, but every other word was a curse word. F-this, and Sh-that.. I'm certainly no prude but this is an upscale, refined restaurant and this behavior is unprofessional and unacceptable. I will continue to return because I love the restaurant, I just have to be very specific about where we sit. And I wish the nightclub had a separate entry where the two venues did not have to mix.
My family and I dined at 94th Aero Squadron for Easter dinner. We had 4:30 reservations but we waited nearly 50 minutes before we were seated! The waitress apologized and explained that it was because the Easter Brunch crowd took a longer time to leave which caused them to run behind schedule in getting set up for dinner. Our waitress was pleasant enough. Once we ordered, the food came out at a reasonable amount of time but there were some issues. My Mom ordered her steak dinner medium but they brought her a medium well steak so we had to send that back. My son ordered shrimp fettuccine but ended up not eating it because the noodles were not quite right and they stuck together plus there was very little sauce and very little flavor in his dish. My daughter had the shrimp and scallops pasta dish. She ate the shrimp but only took a bite of the scallop. I tasted her scallops and could immediately tell that they weren't exactly fresh! And once again the dish was bland and lacked flavor. I had the parmigiano crusted chicken with garlic mashed potatoes and a side of vegetables. The chicken was a little overcooked and a little dry, the vegetables were a little too aldente and the mashed potatoes weren't very garlicky. Honestly the highlight of the meal was the cheese beer soup which is amazing, the bread and butter and our drinks! The bartender did a great job on our drinks. I had raved about the food to my family only to be thoroughly disappointed! Maybe the quality of the food was not up to participate due to the longer than usual Easter Brunch diners. I certainly hope so. I'll give 94th the benefit of the doubt and another chance. I really hope they were just having an off day!
We were very disappointed in our service by our server, it was a female with dark hair our reservation was under Renee Wells. And we were there at 9:00 so she didn't seem to be too busy at first and there was only 3 of us. Two of us were drinking champagne and one coffee at first and the other beer when she would actually come around! You would think she would check to see if he wanted more beers to raise her check, but I guess not! ( I used to wait tables) I normally ask for Kevin he is AMAZING always on top of it, friendly and courteous and helpful but he was not there. I come there a lot, for brunch only, I didn't even use my birthday email discount you sent me I probably should have, I absolutely love your brunch spread and normally receive pretty good service. I worked for Nordstrom for 8 years in management so I know all about customer service, hence why I am writing this email. Thank you for your time. I picked your restaurant for a reason to celebrate my birthday!
Have been a fan of 94th Aerosquadron's Sunday brunch for many years. Sitting outside is such a pleasure in good weather, with the small planes taking off, and the pond with the ducks. The buffet is always the same, but always good, lots of choices. Service is usually very good, Cheryl is our favorite waitress.
Went for Sunday Brunch. There were 4 of us and had a great time. We had a waiter named Steve. He was the best. Great service. The food was great as were the food choices. The Desserts were very tasty.
Would recommend everyone try the Brunch out. Priced very reasonable.
We both had the early flight dinners, great value. I had the tilapia with lemon caper sauce and my husband had the Parmesan crusted chicken. Our food came promptly and it was nicely prepared. However, the dessert choices included with dinner was pathetic - neon- colored sherbet, or vanilla cream with a freezer taste! I would have expected more from this restaurant.
Started out pretty good service but seemed like we were forgotten after the appetizer was served. There were only 5 of us, celebrating a birthday, and we were there for almost 2 1/2 hours for a 3 course meal! The food were pretty good but it was overpriced for the kind of service they offered!!
The food was delicious, especially the omelette station and dessert table. Service was wonderful. We were seated minutes before our 1 pm reservation. Getting the food can be awkward, it's a strange layout. The decor is dark but interesting. We will be going back.
We've been coming to the 94th Aero Squadron for over 15 yrs. We love the ambiance, the delicious food, which is consistently excellent, perfectly prepared. The service is always excellent, and we always bring our friends & recommend them to this restaurant.
