Enjoyed my experiences here for breakfast. Good service and the wait time for the food is just about right. If you can eat here you should do it

My wife and I didn't want to drive anywhere while staying next door at Homewood Suites. Walked over to Bistro 39 and ordered an IPA and the short rib pizza. The pizza was awesome, bartender Adam made sure the service was first rate. The menu isn't huge, but the food was excellent. Nice surprise for a lobby bar/restaurant.

I was surprised at how good the food was! And service was great too! The chips and queso was delicious, as was the free bread. The kids meals were included if we purchased and entree which was a good deal and made the kids a big pizza which was amazing we all ate some. The Halibut and Filet Minion were... More

We ate here twice over our two day stay. We were staying next door and came here first for convenience and then came back because of the excellent service and food. Adam, the bartender/server, was awesome! He was attentive and quick even though he was really the only one running both the bar and restaurant. The food was excellent. I... More

I am a Hilton Diamond member so I get breakfast comped when I stay at HGI. As such, I almost always make use of the restaurants in these hotels for morning meals. The combination of cold buffet and made-to-order hot dishes are always agreeable and this location was not an exception. The food was up to standards and the service... More

Stayed at hotel and did not expect to eat there. Did once and kept coming back. Better food than surrounding restaurants. Best chicken sandwich I ever had and great breakfast. Service is top notch.

Nothing overly fancy, but perfectly-executed. Hot, fast, cooked-to-order breakfasts (huevos rancheros one day, eggs over easy with sourdough the other). Friendly, fast service. Great room service (sandwich and sweet potato fries were very well-seasoned, cooked hot/fresh, delivered quickly). Perfect.

We decided to eat at the hotel we are staying at, Hilton Gardens Inn in Del Mar, as we didn't feel like driving anywhere. The restaurant was actually quite good, and reasonably priced for a Hilton restaurant. The seating is really part of the lobby, so ambience is making a bit, but it's well lit and not cramped. Service was... More

Stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn for two nights and decided to try the $12.95 breakfast from Bistro 39. This was a mistake. Tried some oatmeal, way overcooked. Then went for the eggs benedict. This was a disaster. It came out without any Hollandaise sauce on it. They took it back to add sauce. The eggs are supposed to have... More
