Drove from Manhattan Beach especially for Lunch here at The 94th Aero Squadron. It is located across from a small airfield love the setting with the aircraft and outside dining area, Service was excellent and meal was worth the journey.

My wife ordered the steak kabob, I ordered the linguine with scallops and shrimp....the steak was not tender or very tasty, however the linguine was quite good. We ordered the butter lettuce salad with blue cheese and a very nice light dressing, it was very good as well. The issue was the service provided by our waiter; he forgot to... More

94th Aero is full of rich history. The decor will make you feel like you've stepped into time, you will also hear actual WWI radio communication while visiting the restroom. Time memorabilia are displayed throughout the restaurant and even the back patio. Aside from history they offer an amazing Sunday brunch! Omelet station, carving station, fruits, salads, entrees, desserts and... More

Great dining option for a steak dinner or happy hour after work. Drink specials every weekday. One of the best Sunday champagne brunch locations in San Diego.

Came to celebrate our friend's birthday. She has a love for Escargot and they have a different way to serve it. They serve it in mushroom caps. She was in love. The food was delicious and service was outstanding. The fun thing is the atmosphere.

The Sunday brunch is absolutely amazing. There's such a variety of foods to try. The eggs Benedict was great. The teriyaki salmon melted in my mouth. The desserts are endless. I recommend pacing yourself to try a little of everything. The bottomless mimosas was a true selling point for the price. Well worth the $30 per person. Believe me I... More

Haven't been to this chain in over 20 years when it closed in Orlando. This dinner brought me back. Looks and feels like the way I remembered. The group was 50-60 adults for a weekday dinner. The style of French country farm house over looking the executive airport is unique and cozy even in a group setting. Service was super... More

We came here for Sunday brunch again and we knew this time to make sure to have reservations before hand. We made them for noon and surprisingly, it wasn't too busy from the looks outside. Not too many people waiting for tables because they were all able to be seated. I'm still baffled how they have the buffet line set... More

I used to come here when I lived in San Diego 10 years ago. I was so excited to learn they still did Sunday brunch with the same excellent spread and champagne, and to share it with my husband.

Thank Lindsay P

For over 30 years, one of San Diego's landmark dining destinations and one of the most unique and memorable restaurants you will ever find. Located inside a replica of a World War I French farmhouse decorated with fascinating military memorabilia, antiques, and aviation relics, the restaurant overlooks Montgomery Field Airport, and has a cozy and romantic ambiance, with large stone fireplaces intimate booths, and beautiful views. The extensive menu features mid-western aged beef and the freshest seafood. Here you will find USDA Choice & Prime Beef steaks, slow-roasted Angus prime rib, succulent lobster tail, fresh fish, rack of lamb, veal, chicken, pasta dishes, and fabulous desserts. Their famous Champagne Brunch is currently the #1 Sunday Brunch in the city on AOL's CityGuide poll and is not to be missed. Beautiful outdoor patios, a very popular Happy Hour, and excellent banquet facilities help make the 94th Aero Squadron one of the great dining experiences in all of San Diego.
