Has anyone been to Noble Experiment yet? Is it hard to get in? Any special thing you need to do to get a reservation?

  1. Haven't been yet, but from what I hear it's just call or text to get a reservation. They have a website that is purely a link to emailing them, but it has their phone number on it too (619-488-4713). According to Yelpers they're open Wed-Sun.

    How do you post links as actual links, btw? Can we write in HTML here?

          Sorry for the multiples duplicate posts. Either my internet or Chowhound had an internet fart and now there are three of them.

        2. I went over the weekend. Really excellent. Reservations are a must.

            "Really excellent"

            Can you break it down?

              Their website is all jacked up. When you click on it, their e-mail function opens up. I am not optimistic at this juncture.

              1. re: Dagney

                I assumed they did that on purpose, as they want you to call, text, or e-mail to make reservations. And they want to keep their air of mystery for at least a little while longer.

                  Oh.

                  Just what the San Diego food scene needs, more schtick.

                    Wait until Searsucker opens.

          2. Let Antony make you a drink,

              He made my cocktails - Dark & Stormy from the drink list (the best I ever had) and a follow up cocktail with rum as a base liquor. No food scene here just great drinks. Once you find the place it is very friendly and comfortable.

            2. How is this place compared to Prohibition in the Gaslamp district?

              I was pretty disappointed by Prohibition because they didnt enforce their "strict" dress code and the band they had playing was so loud you couldnt even talk - seemed like they were trying too hard

              made a solid cocktail though

                Noble Experiment > Prohibition. No dress code, but the clientele are generally nicer. Volume is fairly low-key.

                Cocktails are simple in the style of M & H, but very well balanced (and of course, they are always happy to replace a cocktail you don't like). One thing I find very nice is that the bartenders are extremely receptive to feedback as well. Overall, drinks are better than Prohibition by a fair amount.

                  Ok sounds good for the next visit, my understanding is that you have to text them 1 week before you go and not email, is that still the case for the resos

                  1. re: Dapuma

                    Text for table seats. If you want to sit at the bar (which, frankly, should be the only way to go), they accomodate walk-ins.

                      ok thanks

                      will have a group of 4 so the ladies will probably prefer a table, but yeah always like to sit at the bar if just me and the mrs
