I didn't realize this was a locally-owned restaurant when I stayed at the Sheraton for a meeting at the university. I had breakfast there and was so impressed! Fresh greens, delicious bread, the service was awesome. I highly recommend it for travelers in the hotel.

This restaurant in a hotel had a nice menu with reasonable prices. It was a quiet venue where you could actually hear conversations. Our server, Jade, was excellent. I will go back!

I stayed at the hotel and decided to eat locally on my last night in town. I was pleasantly surprised. The food was Very good. Fresh rolls. Good size portions and not run of the mill.

Wendy our server was extra friendly and efficient during our breakfast. Avocado toast and coffee was good. Great location for anything UCSD.

We love dining at Humphrey's in the Sherator Hotel in La Jolla. The extensive menu has a wonderful variety of favorites. All are reasonably priced . We go there often and we have never been disappointed in the quality the taste. The service is excellent...and we are delighted whenever We have Brittany as our server. She is not only professional but also very friendly and makes the dining experience an especially special one.More

Have always liked Humphrey's La Jolla. Food is good, Service is excellent and wait staff has been there forever. Ask if you go. It is one of the few restaurants that is quiet & you can hear each other talk & no yelling. Prices are...very reasonable. There is no comparison to Humphrey's PT Loma. Two very different types of dining experience. Do try it if you are in the area .More

Caught an uber to go there because of the great reviews. What a joke. Have never doubted TA until now - hotel management need to have a serious look at the staff they employ. The food was warm. And the crab cakes were inedible- The...service was even less attentive- couldn’t wait to leave. We only had five nights in San Diego and ruined one of them by going there. My mistake. I should have known that hotel restaurants are notorious for having staff that don’t give a dam. You could hear them laughing out in the kitchen and they weren’t any in the dining room unless they to dump your meal and run. Look elsewhere .More

Terrific Customer Service and friendly staff, in particular Ever, who is so kind, attentive and a positive attitude. Always a pleasure to dine at Humphrey's Grill. Great food and nice folks who care about the full dining experience. Great hostess and bus staff as well...;-)More

My daughter and I ate breakfast on a cold rainy June morning. Wendy provided incredible service and the food was perfect.
