Pacific Standard Coastal Kitchen in San Diego

We dined as a guest of the venue


When I heard about the opening of the hottest new dining destination in San Diego, Pacific Standard Coastal Kitchen, I couldn’t wait to make plans to go to San Diego for an epicurean adventure. When making plans to dine at the new restaurant, I learned that a new hotel, Hilton San Diego Downtown/Bayside, just opened next door, making it the perfect opportunity for a family staycation.


After spending the day exploring downtown San Diego, our family had worked up quite an appetite and were excited to having dinner at the chic new restaurant. The minute that I stepped into the restaurant, I was in love with the decor. The restaurant features cool colors, modern light fixtures, and golden silverware. Before I even had a chance to taste the food, I was already in love.


We were seated in a comfortable booth where I sipped on a glass of chardonnay while looking over the extensive menu. There were so many great options to choose from, and the server took the time to help navigate me through the menu and select the perfect items to satisfy my taste buds.




Dinner started with a beautifully presented charcuterie board that featured a wide variety of flavorful meats and cheeses. The appetizer was perfect for our family and offered a little bit of something for everyone to enjoy at the beginning of our meal.


The children’s menu at Pacific Standard Coastal Kitchen is very impressive. While it has the traditional cheeseburger or chicken fingers, it also offers healthier choices like salmon, that my older son selected. His meal came with a generous serving of salmon paired with freshly cooked vegetables that gave him the nutrition he needed to get a good nights sleep.


Since I was in the mood for some fresh seafood, the server recommended the lobster spaghetti. The dish featured pasta, chunks of lobster, wild chanterelles, corn, and tomato. The dish was light, flavorful and left me craving more.


The serving sizes at Pacific Standard Coastal Kitchen were large enough that everyone in our family was too full to enjoy dessert, which leaves us with a great reason to return to the restaurant in the future.

When planning your upcoming family San Diego getaway, make reservations to dine at Pacific Standard Coastal Kitchen, and make a staycation out of your drive down the coast by booking a room at the beautiful new Hilton San Diego Downtown/Bayside.

Pacific Standard Coastal Kitchen is located at 2137 Pacific Hwy, San Diego, CA 92101. Reservations are available by calling (619) 819-0090.
