We enjoyed our first visit and plan to return in the near future. Lovely meal and great service
Always love this place! Excellent service. Delicious food. Love, love the escargot and the duck. I consistently recommend it as a special restaurant for fine dining.
Marvelous food and great food.
Excellent food and service. Wait staff is attentive to customers needs. I'll be back.
Amazing cozy night date spot. Extremely courteous and kind
Excellent service and food. They gave us some complimentary drinks as it was my daughters birthday
This is somewhat of a hidden gem. We were here about 7 months ago and it was empty. We usually don't return to a restaurant no matter how good we want to keep trying new places. But our first choice right down the street had a 90 min wait for a party of 3. Quickly got on Open Table found reservation in 15 mins available and had another fantastic brunch. People continued to walk in and were seated, while down the street at the Hash place people were still in line when we walked back toward Balboa park. Highly recommend.
Great Menu and great service
We went twice in our one week vacation to San Diego. Enjoy the specialty cocktails and the wine pairing option - not premium wines but well paired. The onion soup was sinful. We ate the pork chop, the trout, the mussels and the steak, all delicious. The menu is quite limited and we explored most of it.
This is one of San Diego's "jewels". The place is cozy and quaint. The service is fantastic. The food is delicious--every time.
Lovely little place. Felt like we were back in Paris. Delicious food. Great service. And a perfect French 75! Highly recommend.
I got there early so i expected the food would be great as it was not busy. The onion soup was typical with lots of cheese but nothing special. I had a salad which was very ordinary. The dressing was not special. The 2 stars is because I had the trout which was not fresh (fishy taste which shows lack of freshness). The trout was overcooked in a very unappealing sauce which added very little flavor. A fine restaurant would never offer trout as a main course when there are so many better choices of fish to serve in San Diego. I was totally disappointed with my dinner and cannot recommend this restaurant. I went there based on the glowing reviews I read online. The people that wrote these revues should try other French restaurants which are far better so they can write more informed reviews.
This is our favorite neighborhood restaurant. The menu is small, but each dish is beautifully prepared. The service is impeccable. The ambiance is quiet and sophisticated. The staff is attentive but not hovering. This is our go-to place for out-of -town guests.
Great gem in Hillcrest. Small but intimate. Service is terrific and food really hits mark for French with country flair.
Unexpected jewel. Food and service were excellent and we could actually hear each other speak. Plan to return.
Bonne Table never disappoints. Incredible food, fair prices, great servers, good wine. Always a perfect time.
Great service, fabulous and authentic French food. My French born wife loved the French specialties. The French Onion soup was as good as anything we've had in France! Small restaurant but did not feel crowded. Quiet for conversation - which is becoming rare!
What a lovely place to be. The food and ambiance transported us and allowed us to feel as if we had discovered a lovely cafe in a quiet French neighborhood. The service was pleasant and the food was impeccable. Looking forward to another meal there in the near future.
We had a wonderful experience here. Very gracious staff and delicious French cuisine. The restaurant is quite small which makes for a very romantic setting. Can’t wait to return.
What a gem this is!! As close to Paris as we can get here in San Diego!! Don’t miss this great food experience!! Bon appetit!
Great restaurant. Very very nice
Great location, very authentic decor, delicious food, and impeccable service
We had a wonderful time! Cozy, charming set up. Authentic French food and ambiance. Great service. We Went to celebrate my husband’s birthday and they were super attentive with us. When in San Diego, we will definitely return!
Excellent atmosphere. The food is incredible. One of my most favorite restaurants when visiting San Diego. Extremely attentive wait staff.
Another great meal!
I have eaten at La Bonne table many times and have never been disappointed yet. The food is excellent and the ambiance is also very good. I truly love coming here
The food and wine tasting was excellent. I would like to see new things on the menu.
Wonderful as always
Charming, quaint, bistro. Great for a date or with friends, as we were, for brunch or lunch. All round pleasant.
Very good brunch, but the service was a bit slow for such a small place. Given that, really need to get a reservation. Anxious to try it for dinner.
Always great with everything
This is a small, intimate setting with great service and excellent food! One could feel transported to Paris!
I've been twice now and both times it was a great experience. Traditional French food, great wine at good prices. The menu changes seasonally so I can't wait to go back!
Excellent service great food pleasant atmosphere try the lamb shank delicious
I enjoy going to this locally adorable restaurant. Their menu is creative, cheeses are delicious and they have a good wine selection. We were very surprised to have such large entree's. Usually, French equates to small plates. Neither of us were able to finish our meal. I had the lamb. Though, it was tender, I thought it lacked depth of flavor. My son had the mussels, it was delicious.
Valentines dinner was pre-fixe at $65 pp and choices were varied with something yummy for every taste bud. Lobster bisque starter was fantastic and salad was salad, meh. Salmon entree and steak frites were great, dessert was included. I opted for wine pairing ($25 extra) and should have specified red wine preferences as I was served two whites, which were fine, but my fault for not being specific. The serving staff aims to please, so feel free to ask questions. Ambiance is total charmsville.
We have been wanting to try this place for a while now, especially since we live within walking distance. So, we made Valentine's Day reservations a month ahead. It was great and we will definitely be back. It is very authentic French cuisine, very intimate and pleasant. Wine selection was very nice and the service was friendly and prompt. You won't be disappointed.
This place continues to wow us. My husband and I have tried many eateries across San Diego and this one always comes out on top. The service is excellent, the food is consistently fresh and delicious and the atmosphere of the place is relaxing and attractive. It's almost like sitting in a best friend's living room for dinner. The wait staff has not changed for years; the two gentlemen who serve take great care of us without going overboard. We also like that they have a small menu with good selections; I'm always wary of a place that offers a huge number of dishes--how can the chef specialize in all of them? Anyway....this is our go to restaurant.....it's five stars in our book.
The main objection I had to this place was the price. We paid over 100$ for two of us. The "30$ and under" quote is rather ridiculous. We had an entree and soup each. We had no salad and no wine!
On the other hand the food was delicious. The pork chops were excellent, as was the potato/cheese side. My companion also loved the onion soup, though I did not like the use of brown bread in it instead of white and wish I had been given an option.
Most of the other tables were occupied when we arrived, and so the noise level was a bit high. It diminished to a good level by the time we were finished with our meal.
The waiter was very attentive and obliging.
One of our favorites! Superb from service, food, ambiance, wine, etc. Top notch!
We are regular visitors and are never disappointed. The menu is small so it gets lots of attention from the chef. The staff are efficient and attentive. It is a good special occasion venue.
