    The quality and freshness of the food was outstanding. The wine was excellent for it's price range but they don't have any big hitters. The cheese platter was good, but they need to put in some higher end cheese.

    Table 926 is a wonderful restaurant using the freshest of ingredients sourced from local vendors in the San Diego area. I had the sriracha pork wings with pickled okra and other veggies, and it was extraordinary! The love that clearly goes into the preparation by Chef Matt is obvious. The pork was braised, grilled and then flash fried for texture and to make that sriracha glaze stick to the bone. My starter was the roasted cauliflower soup -- it was also smooth, creamy, not too rich, and delicious. I live in Toronto now, but every time I come back to visit family, I always stop in and have a meal here. Service is also done with a smile and efficiency. 2 thumbs up, WAY up!

    We had a great dining experience coupled with excellent service from our server, Ali. The food was innovative and tasty with a great wine selection (again, help from Ali) and a mouthwatering dessert. The restaurant is tucked away in a business area and a little bit off the beaten track but we found it OK and had a very nice time. I Highly recommend looking this place up!

    Matt Richman the Chef / Owner has been doing his magic for years now. On this occasion he had a guest South American Chef, Chelsea, Zeballos-Shean and together they performed a new culinary memory. Argentinian wines paired with delicious food flavors from Peru and Argentina. What a night. Thank you both and hope to see you soon.

    they stacked our party of 4 against the wall right in-between two other groups, when the entire remainder of the restaurant was open. The wine was very good, even though they poured us less than half a glass. When the food came (at different times), I was suprised to see that my youngest daughters pasta portion was tiny. I mean, its pasta. they can't fill up at least half of a bowl? What does pasta cost them. You could actually see the bottom of the bowl. I got the lamb shank and it was greasy and had lots of fat all gummed up over it. My wife had the fish (forgot what kind) and she liked her portion). We left the restaurant less than impressed and will probably not return when the Fishery and enoteca are nearby and so much better.

    This place had good food and good service, but it looks like it went through a "Makeover my restaurant" show. The design was simple, but so simple it didn't have any character. It looked very sanitized and plain. If this restaurant was ice cream it would be sugar-free vanilla. But maybe that's what they're going for. North PB is a very white, yuppie and older crowd. That was exactly the demographics of the restaurant patrons.

    My wife and I travel extensively and always like to find unique dining experiences. Table 926 fit the bill from the great food and service to the interaction with a local couple having a date night away from their 3 children "for the first time in a while". My wife had a vegetarian dish highlighted by Gnocchi and an array of mushrooms. My Golden Grouper dish highlighted by a light but smokey flavored broth that his the spot.

    Every bite was worth the calories! Great service even though they were quite busy on a Sunday evening. My elderly mom and I were splitting an entree and they even brought it out on separate plates for us!D Such attention to detail on all the dishes. Caesar salad with bacon AND good anchovies - sublime! Merguez sausage and pasta, Hog cheeks with polenta, tenderloin with chutney, clams with chorizo - all different and each was yummilicious! All 5 foodies were happy as we left. The chocolate dessert ( with carmelized white choco bits sprinkled around) was even worth the calories. Wish I lived closer, but every time I visit my mom, this will be my go to spot.

    We've eaten at Table 926 a few times now. (The owner is a friend of a friend.) They have a small, purposeful menu - with something for everyone. Their concept is to use as many local, fresh ingredients as possible. As such, all of the sauces are made right there at the restaurant - and the flavor is amazing. Our favorites so far have been the fish dishes we've had - and the tempura squash blossom tacos. A flower. Fried. In a taco. Seemed crazy but was great. There was music when we were there - and the place was busy, so the noise level was high, but didn't impede conversation. We'll definitely be back.

    If there were a ten star rating, I would award it to Table 926. Absolutely the best and most creative food we have had in a long time. Jazz music playing and delicious food being served all around. The combinations are unique and mouthwatering. A true GEM! The empanadas we reminiscent of those in Brazil. Delicious crust and moist chorizo filling. The Ceasar salad was a beautiful change to the norm. And, the clams were to die for. I didn't think it could get any better until the fig tart arrived. Truly a gastronomic delight!!

    I want to see this restaurant succeed. It has a contemporary, elegant look and feel, and could be the perfect neighborhood spot. Continues to have very good service, great wine and beer list and tasting to help you get the right choice, a generous pour, and interesting ideas in a small menu. Our first visit, the food seemed like a revelation, hit almost all its marks, but each return there are a few disappointments. Last night's halibut cheeks were a lovely, tasty presentation, but overcooked. The chorizo and salt overwhelm the clams. Would love to see the grouper again, that was excellent.

    Always love this restaurant, but wine prices continue to climb. Higher prices don't always mean better quality. This is a situation where "you get what you pay for" doesn't apply. They do have some good wines but they're not worth what is being charged.

    Would fully recommend. For groups, make a reservation to be sure, but they will fully accommodate you. Went on a Tuesday which is $12 for 3 wines or $10 for 4 beer flight night. Each of 6 got something different and everything was delicious, from the pork cheek to the burger. Specials not listed on the menu were also fantastic. Our server, along with the other wait staff, was wonderfully attentive, provided great recommendations and service. Although it was a little pricey for a weekly haunt, it is definitely somewhere I would go again and tell others to visit. They had a pretty sizable wine list with glasses or bottles ($60+) for purchase. A hidden gem of North PB tucked off Turquoise Street.

    We waited for a special occasion to visit, but I don't know if I'd return to 926. Menu selections seemed pretty limited, and to be honest I can't remember what I ordered. All was well-prepared and tasty, but lacked that extra "something." This is a fairly expensive place for a neighborhood staple. We went for celebratory birthday dinner, and the service was really nice. We tried several wines, and our sever made excellent suggestions. I just can't remember the food... guess that's commentary in itself. Concrete floors, rows of tables, and hard surfaces would make this small place really noisy on a busy night. Not good for romantic, intimate dinner. Decor unremarkable. I only had one glass of wine, so lack of memory is genuine. Cheers!

    My husband is a good cook -- and a tad Scottish stingy. So getting him out to eat in and of itself is a challenge. Before we had even ordered at Table 926 on May 5, he had declared that he "loved this place" based on the low noise level, simple decor, chalkboard specials and local-hits beer list. He and our Cordon Bleu-trained friend both ordered pig cheeks on grits and cleaned their plates. We loved the roasted brussel sprouts as an appetizer, too. And when our waiter realized he'd entered the wrong item for one in our party, the kitchen recovered double-time, comped the dish, and threw in a dessert, too. Great service, great ambiance, great food -- and a check my hubby has happy to pick up for our party of four. Table 926 is a gem..
