We love this restaurant. Staff friendly. Food delicious. Great restaurant and one doesn’t need to drive Downtown. I think one of the best restaurants in Sacramento. Make sure you order the mussels. Delicious.

This was our first time dining at Plan B. We went to the Arden Town location. The food and service was excellent! The restaurant is contemporary, yet cozy, and the staff are friendly and engaging. This is quite a hidden gem!

Went there for our anniversary. The crab roll appetizer was delicious, the lentil soup exquisite. I had the peppered rib eye which was done perfectly, my wife had the filet which was outstanding. The dessert and coffee equally first tier.
The owner came by several times to check on us and really made us feel special. We will definitely come back. It was well worth the drive (approx 1 hr).

Food was very good and Rodney took good care of us. Looking forward to returning following what was my first visit here. I've also enjoyed the Mid-town location for lunch on several occasions, as well as dinner.

Our dinners were outstanding! One had the quail, the other the mussels, shared onion cheese tartlette and pommes frites. Service was professional but slow. Maybe they were a server short that night. Every table but two was full, so maybe they had more diners than expected. Took too long to get our menus, to take our order, and to bring the wine. Had to ask for bread for the mussel broth. I have been here two times before and both of those times the service was timely, but only a few tables were in use on those occasions.

The owner who sat my date and I wasn’t very welcoming. However, we were met with great service from our waiter, but that was the only highlight of the night. I ordered a very expensive Rib-eye which was incredibly tough, chewy, and overpoweringly peppery.

We always love Plan b restaurant. The meals are usually outstanding, Particularly the lamb and the scallops. The mussels are a bit hit and this time I had linguine with clams. Just the right amount of garlic and heat to make them wonderful

I had not been to this restaurant for many months and was pleasantly surprised. It was less pretentious that previous visits, service was excellent and food, if not exceptional, was still very good. Most of all, the quiet atmosphere allows for conversation, which is not true in many restaurants.

Great service with knowledgeable staff. Pear and bacon pizza was incredible as an appetizer. Pork belly Reuben and pork main dish really delicious. Wines are a bit pricey and it's not the spot for a romantic dinner due to the noise level but fun place for a friend get together.

The service was slow with only three other tables seated. The special was supposed to have three pieces-- there were only two. My ribeye was grisly, overcooked and didn't taste like a ribeye. I love pepper but it was too mucheven for me. Not going back

A nice selection of salads and starters. The specials on the board above the bar are always unique and varied and the wine list is excellent.
A great French restaurant experience.

We always go for the mussels. The appetizers were wonderful as was the gazpacho. The first round of mussels were slightly overcooked, kind of shriveled, dried up. The second round was perfect, plump and fresh. Others had the filet mignon and the duck breast, both very good. Nice wine list.

My family and I have always loved Plan B. However I was extremely disappointed that they have started using canola oil or canola/olive oil mixes in dressings, marinades, etc Canola oil is disastrous to health as it is a by product as well as GMO derived. I am seeing this more and more in high end restaurants who are trying to save a buck rather than keep with true ingredients. I hope they go back to using REAL ingredients so that way I can return more often.

This was our first visit to Plan B for along while, and it was as good as we remembered. Everything prepared and presented beautifully, with very attentive service. My only comment is that the rib-eye, while done exactly to my liking, had too much sauce on it, and, as a result, caused the usually-crisp pomme frittes to become soggy and inedible. I'm confident that particular situation will not arise again. Definitely will come back.

Nice setting with older crowd of diners. Service not overly attentive as they were busy. We usually do not salt our food so the saltiness of the mashed potatoes and green beans was not to our taste. The swordfish seemed to have been grilled on the same grill as the beef so the grill flavors overpowered that of the fish. Will try the mussels next time.

This was our first visit to Plan B. We left wondering why it had taken us so long to go there. We stayed at our table, talking to a friend we hadn't seen for a while, for 3 hours. There were just a few people left when we did. The owner was very gracious. We'll return in the near future because everything was superb.

I really hate to give Plan B A positive review because then everybody will be going there. But there's no way I cannot recommend this restaurant! I have the pleasure of going to many nice places for dining, and plan B is definitely up there with the best. I've been going there since they opened. The small intimate atmosphere coupled with great service and great food, make it an terrific place to dine. I took friends that have never been there and they loved it as well!

So please read this review and go somewhere else and definitely don't tell your friends about this place. :-)

This was a great choice for our anniversary dinner. The owner greeted us at the door and seated us at our choice of available tables. Conversations around us were quiet and the background music was just right.
The food was terrific - we split the Salmon Stix to start. Nice size servings and done perfectly. A side of pomme frites and a salad led to the roasted chicken entree. Once again, done perfectly.
The wine list wasn't too long but nicely selected for variety and quality.
Our waiter was right on point all night. He never interrupted us but was there quickly at all the right moments.
It was wonderful to linger over a slow meal for almost 3 hours to celebrate our anniversary. And the owner escorted us to the door as we left.
