The Helm

University Club Atop Symphony Towers Dining

The newly renovated upscale dining experience was curated with intention at the University Club to meet the growing chef-driven demands of Downtown San Diego. The Helm offers a handcrafted menu thoughtfully design by Executive Chef Lance Repp to meet the changing of the seasons in a simplified manner. Celebrate, unwind, and enjoy good company as the sun sets over the San Diego skyline or make it a power lunch as you close the deal of a lifetime.

This unique dining experience brings in the soft natural colors of the sea as our team of skilled service professionals work to make every minute memorable. With seating for up to 8 guests, we are available for every occasion as we offer a limited 7-course tasting menu on select nights (reservations required).
