    We visited with our two 20 something kids who live in PB, so we chose 1 pm for brunch. Unfortunately, they ran out of biscuits and gravy. They brought us the last of their 3 homemade breakfast scones and they were fantastic. Everything we ordered was fantastic and of course, made from scratch. Our son, who had a birthday, said; I will be back for the biscuits and gravy. I stated we were celebrating a birthday and lo and behold they brought him a gift card! Isn't that great customer service!

    Tucked away between PB and La Jolla, Table 926 is a hidden gem of a restaurant. The sauteed gnocchi with pork belly, poached egg, arugula and root puree was fantastic, all the flavors perfectly harmonized together and the portion was quite generous. It was presented as a starter, but could also be a great entree. The brown ale braised pork cheeks with corn grits and tamarind glaze was delicious as well--the meat was so tender, there was no need for a knife. Delicious sauce, well balanced dish. The ice creams were good, and the chocolate lava cake was good as well, but they were a bit boring in that you can get ice cream and chocolate lava cake at many restaurants. There is room for more creativity in the desserts, but otherwise yummy!

    Came here for dinner last Thursday. Requested a different table than what hostess lead us to and she made a displeased face. Our male server was very friendly, the bussers were as well. Our short rib appetizer was very fatty, but the paella was pretty good. We live downtown, so don't think we will be trekking back here anytime soon.

    First the noise level was very high, probably because of the flat surfaces everywhere. Food....the restaurant week menu was not too bad but not worth $35. Companion ordered tuna that came Well Done with a glob of tapenade on top! I wish the food were better as it could be a nice local restaurant.

    We came during restaurant week and loved our experience. Brought two kids and they loved their pasta dish, high chair was challenging though. I liked the menu, but didn't love the restaurant week menu. Great wine! Friendly staff, walking distance from north pb, dessert was tasty. All in all we will most certainly be back and back and back again.

    We had a great brunch at this restaurant. The french toast was fluffy and very tasty. The berries on top were splendid. The lobster omelette was very good. The scones melted in your mouth and had a lot of flavor. I liked the variety. The side potatoes were just the perfect amount and had a lot of flavor.

    Had read about Table 926 and finally settled on an intimate birthday dinner to give it a try. Although the dinner menu selection isn't huge, studying it closely we could see the emphasis on novelty, and quality and TLC in meal preparation also became apparent. Just how many choices does one need anyway?! Every dish was delicious. Our server was friendly and professional, advising a wine suitable for two very different entrees (paella and lamb). Dinner ended with a birthday candle in a scoop of goat cheese ice cream that tempted us even though appetizer, salad, and entree had fully satisfied. Modest indoor dining space but that very enjoyable evening was not spoiled at all by ambient noise. No question that we will return!

    The food and service was wonderful. Our corner table perfect against the usual noise level...however, the day after Labor Day turned out to be a slow one so noise level was not a problem. The four of us totally enjoyed our evening. This is one of our favorite dinner spots. We also want to try brunch.

    This is one of our favorite neighbood restaurants. There is a seasonal menu with nightly specials based on what is local and in season so everything is quite fresh and tasty. It's a good place to get small plates or things to share for the table. Our party of 4 shared an excellent flatbread as an appetizer. Everyone was quite pleased with the main dishes (in our case 2 types of fish) and with the dessert shared among us. The restaurant is casual with friendly service and upscale food. Also good for a special occasion. We will return soon!

    Our third time with Alex as a server and he is incredibly knowledgable, fun and great at what he does! We had brussels sprouts, the Caesar salad, pork tenderloin, short ribs and yellowtail and each one was fantastic! This is accessible fine food. Enough of the trendy touches for foodies, yet quality cuts of meat and fish and just the right touch of seasoning.

    Took a good friend here for her birthday. All of the food was fantastic (even the bread was warm and smelled amazing). We were sat quickly and attended to in a timely manner. The server and bus boy were both friendly and personable. Even offered to take our photo. We ordered the scallop penne and the salmon dishes. Both fantastic and I even cleaned the plate with the bread (I was starving, but that shouldn't take away from the fact that every bit of food was worth the bite). We were also comped a delicious dessert for my friend's birthday. It is a small place, but there is a small parking lot. I'd highly recommend it for small groups.

    The dinner was a special wine maker dinner and, well...the wines were great but the food, although tasty, didn't pair well in most courses! I was a little disappointed in that aspect. One course had pickled okra that was so spicy I couldn't even taste the wine after. The food alone, good. The wines alone, great...the combinations just didn't always work. The service, however, was stellar!

    this was an excellent fins during a recent trip to San Diego. Although a little way off the Pacific Beach seafront, it was still only 15 minute walk from our hotel ( Pacific shores Inn). The menu was short ( I prefer that!) but included some specials and catered for most tastes! We all tried something different ( Seafood Pasta, Hanger Steak, Pork Cheeks and Pork Tenderloin). All were delicious and combined with some unusual ingrediants! Portions were generous but not over facing, so you may have room for puddings of which the deconstructed banyan split was the star! Give this neighbourhood resto a try, you will not be disappointed. Service was great too!

    If you're in the area, it's a real no brainer - but we live pretty far inland. We still try to get here a minimum of once a month. This time, it was for their Father's Day brunch with my inlaws. They had a great selection of sweet and savory items (they had 3 kinds of BBQ today which my father-in-law loved!). It's always a welcoming atmosphere and the food is top notch. Really unique and delicious flavor combinations. Perfect for dinner or brunch.

    We love this little neighborhood place. Food is very good and gives you a farm to table attitude. My mom would be so proud of me eating Brussels sprouts without a fight. The Yellowtail was a little salty, so the olive tampenade on it went to the side and was smeared on the basket of french bread. I might ask for that as an appetizer for the next visit.

    Excellent service. Our waiter was knowledgeable and helpful. Two seafood dishes on the menu were not available because the chef felt that morning's delivery was not up to standard. I think this speaks to the high standard of the food. The substitute fish dishes - halibut and yellowtail - were very fresh, interesting and delicious.
