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.

We are faithful customers of the 94th Aero Squadron. Each year San Diego holds 2 "Restaurant Weeks" that have included the 94th Aero Squadron and we go every year. Each time we have company, we've taken them to the 94th for Sunday brunch. In former times, the 94th has offered one of the most stupendous Sunday brunches in town. Most... More

We have been here for previous brunches. It is a great alternative to Humphrey's if you are looking to save some money on brunch. Go early since there is not a lot of room for the brunch line and it gets crowded.

Great food, good sized portions, the freshly backed bread loaf is wonderful!! A bit high in price, so it's not someplace to go on a whim. There was a wedding happening in the garden the evening my husband, adult son and I visited. Husband and son are aviation buffs -- so they enjoy looking at the decorating items. Wanted to... More

Sunday brunch on holiday weekend - really glad we booked as the wait list was out of the door by some way! Buffet was kept well-stocked and the service was good. Food was tasty, drinks flowed and a reasonable price ($29.95 all you can eat for adults). Quirky and fun atmosphere with the aircraft/WW1 aviation theme too.

This is a nice restaurant with a very interesting theme, and the food and service is very good. However, on Mother's Day it was oversold and the crowds were crushing. I would not recommend going again unless they did a better job in pacing the reservations. The crowd and confusion was very unappetizing.

Built as a WWI theme, 94th Aero Squadron is a fun place to visit. They have headphones at some of the booths and you can listen to traffic at the tower at Montgomery Field next door. We had great Service and the food was delicious. We also love to go here for the Sunday Brunch. They put on quite a... More

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.
