It was a great Father’s Day lunch with the airplanes taking off just outside the restaurant fence.

94th for brunch is always a great idea. We had a lovely Father's Day meal, as usual. Our server, Melvin, was attentive and very helpful. Thanks for everything, 94th!

94th Aero Squadron at the Van Nuys airport always has an amazing brunch. For Father’s Day they added a beer garden and gave away poster-my 11 year old daughter thought that was sexist because it wasn’t done for Mother’s Day; I wasn’t doing to debate the economic winfall that is Mother’s Day.
The food, service, and ambiance are excellent Sunday after Sunday. My only advice, if you plan to join them for a special holiday Sunday-book ahead time!

We hadn't been to 94th Aero Squadron for many years and thought it would be a great place for a mini family reunion. Since we had a group of 9, we knew reservations were a must. We were seating promptly but that unfortunately was the best part of our experience. Our waiter was inattentive and forgetful. Management had him spread to thin throughout the restaurant and we paid the price. Drinks were slow to arrive, we waited at least 20 minutes before our dinner order was taken. When the food arrived, most everyone's entree was overcooked to the point of being dry. For many, this was their first time at the restaurant and I suspect it will be their last. So disappointing.

Our family had a great time and table was as requested, corner cause we talk a lot. Poor Patrick, our waiter, was swamped though, and food was not all that hot (temperature), but still enjoyable, and we all love the building and decor. Mighty fine selections on menu, and for being pre-Father's Day, our evening was pretty good and definitely a good time. Thank you, we'll definitely return.

Had a fantastic time, food was great, reasonable prices during lunch. Service needs assistance, we waited at least 45 minutes before our meals came. Drinks were slow, in our servers defense, she had a couple of large parties outside, the manager should of provided additional help.

What a wonderful time we had at the 94th! It was our first time, and we were greeted by a lovely lady at the hostess stand who gave us a brief history lesson about the restaurant and explained our dining and happy hour options. She was obviously proud of the restaurant and it's story. We chose to sit in the bar area and were taken care of by Corie, who could not have been more professional or helpful. She greeted us with warm bread and a lovely pesto. There were three of us in the party, and we each had a few glasses of an excellent Sauvignon Blanc while enjoying complimentary roasted potatoes and chips, plus three happy-hour priced food items. We chose the fried calamari, chicken wings, and hummus. Each item was excellent, although the hummus was a little drier than other hummus we've had. Though drier in texture, it was freshly made and delicious. We really liked the interesting history of the restaurant and it's memorabilia, the view of the airport and the planes coming and going, and the bar area was quiet enough for a real conversation. We will definitely return--next time for dinner or brunch.

The service was bad, we only saw our sever a few times as we we getting up and getting our own drinks, water, clearing our own table etc. The food was also poor quality.
No one was at the carving station to carve roast or turkey.
The French toast fingers were stale. The cheese blintzes were a weird consistency. The Roasted chicken tasted like fish. The enchiladas tortilla was stiff. I was afraid to eat the seafood because it smelled very fishy. What I did like - the omelets were made fresh, the fruit was very fresh and sweet, deserts were delicious,Mashed potatoes and gravy were good. Over all not a good value for $50+ dollars.
We sat outside- you do have the plane noise but it is not bad and it’s fun to watch the planes. I will probably go back but not for brunch.

Unique atmosphere. Fantastic interior.
View on a not busy Van Nyse airport.
You can observe small jets landing and take off.
Food was good too.

We had the most expensive dishes, drinks and desert.
Very pleasant experience. I'd recommend this place to everybody.

Only negative is the bathroom's need some updating. They have a little bit of an oder and old.

We enjoyed our dinner sitting next to the window watching the planes fly in and out of the airport. We were celebrating my husband's birthday, and he loved the cheesecake that he got at the end of his meal in celebration of his special day.

Fantastic place for families to gather for brunch. Great food...always delicious, fresh, hot and plentiful. Servers are attentive and friendly...mimosas were in front of us almost immediately! And if that weren’t enough, you can watch airplanes take off and land! Wish the one in Orlando was still open.

Horrible service, mediocre food at best. The most grossly over-priced holiday buffet I have ever been to. The charcuterie table was laughable. On four separate occasions I had staff simply just be lazy and not want to help me. I mean, all I was asking for was bread. The location was really cool thoough. That's all I have time to write.

The food needs to be warm. They also have to increase their food selection. I absolutely did not like that the best thing was the Belgian waffles and they would run out in a second. Then you would have to wait 15-20 minutes for another 4 pieces to come out!

But the overall view and mimosas were great!!

Food was horrible. Couldn't find anything worth eating. Everything had no taste. Warm oysters and sushi. Korean ribs were doused in Hoisin and you couldn't taste the meat. Roast beef had no flavor. Enchiladas were dry, with no sauce at all. I could go on. This used to be a marvelous brunch. Not any longer.

The food we ate was fantastic. My prime rib was so over cooked I had to send it back. When the finally came back to tell me it was all that way the other person was done eating. So I didn’t have dinner. I never got a second glass of water until they brought desert. My friends desert came after I was done eating so again, separately eating. Sad because it is such a great building, and so poorly managed. 😔
