    I have eaten heavenly mussels on the east coast and for years I was always disappointed whenever I ordered it on the west coast…until now. Plan B is THE go-to place for mussels. In fact everything was cooked and flavored to perfection, from the lobster risotto to the tender chicken to the salmon (although the fish could’ve been a tad fresher). We loved the melon soup so much we ordered it again for dessert! But what made the meal most enjoyable was the kindness of our server (manager?) who displayed exceptional patience with our young son who’d had a long day in the heat and was not in the mood to be cooperative. If you think a French restaurant is snobby, think again. Even the other customers contributed to keeping my son engaged, calming him down by making faces across the aisle and mimicking him. Thank you all for such a positive experience.

    We took our friends who live nearby the restaurant but have never been there before. We happily spent a few hours over a leisurely dinner with all the courses and a few different wines. I especially appreciated our server Lenny who was very likable and knowledgeable about the food. He was able to recommend dishes that could be adjusted to make them dairy-free for me. His wine pairing recommendations were spot on for us.

    The service was really great from start to finish! The host, waiter, and bartender... everyone was super nice. Unfortunately, the food was really back. The salad dressing on the beet salad did not taste good... too acidic and ruined the taste of the salad. The Salmon dish came out lukewarm, the veggies were watery, and the actual fish was of poor quality. Tasted like a frozen fish from Walmart. The only thing that was pretty good was the lava cake, but it was too much lava and not enough cake (still good though... especially compared to everything else). The wine and bread wasn't great either. It was our first time and we really can't recommend it. Too bad since the staff was so nice.

    Food and service were acceptable, but not outstanding. Noise level was close to deafening. Lobby area nonexistent. We were always in the way. Reservation promptly honored. Too expensive for what it is. Parking good.

    I had the mussels poulette with celery, pancetta, thyme, cream. The mussels were meaty and tender and the broth was sooooo good I could not resist ordering bread to soak up the extra. The pommes frites were excellent -- thin, crispy, salty. My friend had the salmon and we started with spinach salad, pear soup, and the prawn stix -- all excellent! Restaurants this good are few and far between in Arden Arcade; this one's a huge winner!

    Nice place hidden away in a plain shopping center. It felt like a downtown place but not downtown. The food was great, though the space was a little noisy and pretty busy (as expected on a Saturday night). I will definitely try it again!

    Service was a little slow but it was a busy Saturday night - at the end of COVID - but is was very relaxing and we had a most enjoyable evening. Would like veal more often on the menu as well as halibut without the bell pepper toping. I like the way Fabians emails the menu each week.............

    The food and service are always very good. The level of noise in the restaurant is always loud inside, between people talking and live music, it is difficult to hear the person your dining with. So the restaurant is loud. If your okay with that it’s a great place for a meal, if you’re not okay with loud then it is a very good place for a meal.

    Very very noisy and busy. Hard to hear. Service was excellent nevertheless. Food was good to very good but not outstanding. Might have been better if they weren’t so packed with people at the bar as well as tables. We will return. A definite step up from what it was years ago.

    I have dined at Plan B several times in the past five years and always found it excellent. Last night disappointed. The caesar salad was comparable to the bagged Caesars at Costco--chopped lettuce, one anchovy and a bland dressing. The tartlet special was bland and the crust dense and hard. The rack of lamb was excellent, but accompanied by pedestrian mashed potatoes. The Monkfish was very tasty, but only three, silver dollar sized medallions on a large bed of uninspired rice. The papparadelle with pheasant and carrots was also disappointing. The pheasant was shredded and lightly spread across the top. It was also tasteless. The noodles looked like they came from low-end American pasta (e.g., Barilla)--bland in both color and taste. I suggest the you drop by Corti Bros. some time to see what real papparadella looks like. The diced carrots in the sauce (more of a broth) were quite good. The apple crostini was good (more of a gallete), especially the dense ice cream that accompanied it.
