My FAVORITE airport restaurant date...

I don't know about the rest of you, but I get extreme anxiety before I get on an airplane. My boyfriend and I stopped in Bankers Hill before our flight so I could get a cocktail, and it was love at first sip. I ordered their brand-new cocktail, the Balboa Constrictor, which is made with white rum... read more

I asked for Grinch fried and for stone additional shipping sauce which was an 1/8 cup more than what came with the fries, and she told me that I world have to pay $3.00 more for the extra sauce for the fries. This place socks. The service is the worst

Starting with the hostess, she might have had a personal problem and seemed sad when she sat us and didn't ask me about my reservation or say anything to us. Our waitress DID SEEM nice and cheerful but never ordered our appetizer or checked on us during our meal. We left and nobody said thanks for coming or anything all... More

Suffering through a flight delay in the San Diego airport, I decided to find food. The line were long at the burger places, and I wanted something better, anyway. I found really good food, excellent friendly service (Lindsay) and a surprising variety of bourbon choices at the bar. If you are looking for a drink or a good meal in... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant based on the positive Trip Advisor reviews. It was not close to where we stayed. We dined before walking into Balboa park to see a show at the Old Globe theatre (walk took about 20 minutes). We were really impressed. We arrived in time to partake in some of the happy hour food...

Found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. Had some good reviews and decided to try it. Although we had to take a cab from the Hyatt it was worth the trip. The food was delicious and the decor different. Had trouble finding our way in with unusual doors. The food was delicious and our server was very attentive. The only reason... More

We were in San Diego for two weeks, ate almost all our meals out and this was our best dinner of the trip. Although we like beet salad, lately most restaurants seem to serve it with goat cheese. Since we are not cheese lovers we usually don't order it, but Bankers Hill prepares it with radishes, lardons and whole grain... More
