This is one of my favorite restaurants in San Diego. It is unique in that they change the menu all the time so you can't count on your last wonderful meal being on the menu every time. It is all local organic produce and meat. i have found every dish to be so different, so fresh, smaller portions, so good... More

Sad to report that Local Habit was not that great. I have heard great thing and have been wanting to check it out for a while. When we arrived there we only a few other people inside and we took a seat at the empty bar. There was only one person working but hey they went busy so its ok.... More

Very good service, great choice of beers - will have to go back to try some of the other ones. The first two things I tried to order were out, which was a bit of a shame - also, for me, the portions were a bit small. All the dishes food tasted very very good though, which is the most... More

Great thin crust gourmet pizzas, but MY favorites are their hard cider and their friend green tomato sandwiches! Busy in the late afternoons and evenings, but a quiet spot at lunchtime. Very friendly wait staff. I believe they feature all sorts of great beers, but I always order the hard cider, which is almost as good as that in Wales!... More

Had a great pizza. It was quick and friendly too. I'd go back for sure. The atmosphere was fun and interesting.

"When in Rome, eat like the Romans" is my motto so I found this neighborhood eatery to experience San Diego and its fare. I could not have been more pleased with the atmosphere or food. Some of the best Brussel Sprouts I have ever had - made me cry (Horseradish sauce-really its excellent). The chicken was cooked perfectly and had... More

Went here for a casual dinner while in San Diego. It's a very casual neighborhood restaurant. The menu is limited and though there are some non-pizza items I would suggest sticking with pizza as I did. Lots of beer on draft. The special pizza was bacon with brussel sprout leaves (two of my favorite things). Very excellent crust and they... More

If you're a beer lover, Local Habit has to be a stop for you while you're in San Diego! The list of nano/micro brewery beers is updated daily, sand features primarily Californian products, although the occasional import creeps in too. If they have Hanger 24 products on the list, the Slow Roll and Tail Slide are spectacular. These beers are... More

The menu is simple, organic with an emphasis on buying locally. They have a pretty extensive list of craft beers and creative pizzas (Not your basic pepperoni style) that complement their beers. The fine dining menu has some excellent choices as well. I had the blackened chicken breast and it was cooked to perfection, probably the best I've had. Don't... More

Four of us just had dinner at Local Habit tonight. It took three samples to find the right beer, but once we identified it we really enjoyed them, some Port that smells like coffee. The pizzas are delicious. The whole wheat crust is excellent. The pork tenderloin was very tender and mildly seasoned. But the best dish was the steak.... More
