Diner Reviews
  • "We selected this restaurant because it is a "Cohn" property and we were celebrating a SPECIAL BIRTHDAY. Having read many negative reviews prior to making the reservation, we decided to ignore the comments and judge for ourselves. Bottom line, it's a mediocre restaurant trying to be a high-class establishment. It was just "okay", nothing special at all. The prices are WAY TO HIGH for the quality of what was served. We probably would have paid HALF the amount for a comparable meal somewhere else. Also, the outdoor seating area was stiflingly hot and humid. The ceiling fans were NOT doing a very good job. Although we enjoyed the ocean view, we wished we had been seated inside with the air conditioning."

  • "Recently had lunch here and the food and service was great. Lots of interesting items on the menu and everything that our party of 4 had was excellent."

  • "I never write bad reviews but this is the exception. we have eaten here many times but Friday night the waiter (Dave) was surly and in attentive. Also, the food was terrible from apps to entree."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "The food was decent for the price and that would not have been mentioned if it wasn't for the terrible service. The service was so slow that it overshadowed the entire experience. You don't mind paying the prices for the quality, but when the service is so slow, just hard to think why you'd want to go back. It's too bad, it might have been a long-term dining option."

  • "This was only our second time here. We had visited awhile back after we first moved to Oceanside so we knew it had great food, but that it was rather pricey. I decided this was just the place for us to celebrate our anniversary and it was a great choice. The food was superb and the service was excellent. We actually all had steaks this time and the meat was wonderful! My husband also had their caprese salad which he loved. The creamed spinach was delicious although I could have done without all the breadcrumbs on top. Finally, we had three different desserts and took home some of each because we had too much to eat. The whole meal was great and I would definitely recommend 333 Pacific as a place to celebrate a special occasion."

  • "My wife and I have been going to 333 infrequently forms couple of years. Initially the service and food was superior to other beach restaurants in the same price range but it has really gone bad this year. I had the 3 course special. The salad was good but the yellow tail was not fresh and then overcooked. The bread pudding dessert was a microwaved mess. The service was adequate, but the waiter knew nothing other than the special and had no recommendations on anything else. The restarant was packed on a Tuesday night so my guess is that the location guarantees a full house so they just don't care about the food quality anymore. For the price there are much better choices in north county."

  • "Made our reservations online for our anniversary dinner very easily. Arrived to the staff and manager greeting us with a happy anniversay throughout the evening. Tammy was a wonderful server, very personable. The food, I cannot say enough about the food! Every bite was melt in your mouth delicious. We finished the evening with a specially made dessert to celebrate. All in all, a great night."

  • "There were 6 of us for lunch with 2 celebrating birthdays. The service was very slow and the restaurant didn't seem very busy but not sure the size of area our server was handling. It must have been big since he was gone for long stretches especially after dishes removed and dropping off the bill I get they don't want to rush people who are talking, but it was at least 10 minutes. They did recover well from an unfortunate incident. Half a sandwich fell off the plate as the food was delivered. The half they brought back was large, much larger than the half that hit the floor. The sandwiches were good, nothing spectacular especially for the price. I enjoy the experience and the food at Vintana so much more."

  • "We made a reservation for a Tuesday night. Upon arrival at our specified time. We were given a pager! Seriously! This is a $30. + plate entree restaurant, not Clam Jumper! They then sat 2 waiting couples and then us. 2 minutes! They had to cheapen the evening with a pager for 2 minutes! Everything else was up to Cohn standards. The service which has been iffy and mentioned in many of the reviews was terrific. No complaints."

  • "We went there for our anniversary. I did my reservations via OpenTable and put in a comment that we were celebrating our 30th anniversary. From the time we arrived to when we left, we were told "Happy Anniversary" by the staff. They also brought out a special desert for us that was very nicely done. Great experience overall. The customer service was very good. The manager was really on top of the operation. Besides going from table to table to check on guests, she also brought out plates as needed or took away items as needed. We would certainly recommend 333 Pacific with out any reservation."

  • "Twice outstanding every way. Twice was acceptable every way but the food was not as good. Twice the food was not good ... both special occasions (Easter and Fathers day). Seems when they are very busy, the food suffers."

  • "The location and service is wonderful at 333! My last 2 lunch visits on Fridays has resulted in hit or miss food prep...not enough attention to detail. From their new lunch menu, a little tweaking is needed: A chopped salad should have had more than a 1 x 1 inch square of eggplant but Kwan, an excellent waiter, was able to remedy that with additional eggplant. Their new pork, apricot jam, Brie cheese pannini was just too dry and needs adjusting...maybe thinner slices of pork that is not so dry. We also sampled the water melon gazpacho soup, but felt it was too oily and perhaps too much vinegar."

  • "I have been here several times (more than 7), this is the only time I have received bad service. The waitress was not attentive at ALL. She asked me how the food was after I had finished the food. Other than that, she didn't say anything to us. Took over 20 minutes after we were done eating to get the bill. Food is always good here. "

  • "I've been to 333 Pacific many times in the past and was looking forward to this visit with a new friend. Made my Open Table reservations for an 8:15 dinner. 4 women at the hostess stand all elegantly dressed, and after about 5 minutes of standing in front of them.. one asked if she could help us. She looked up our reservation, spoke to one of the other hostesses and asked us to follow her. We were to a 2 top, without a smile or comment the hostess handed us menus and the vodka/wine list and left? Took 10 minutes for the waiter to arrive and asked if we wanted drinks, I asked for a hot and spicy jalapeno martini I've had on several occasions, but he came back with a disappointing drink with a few jalapenos dropped in it."

  • "We were taken at our reservation time. The food was very good and we were in the protected outside area. Service was good. However, around the bend there was a party of 8 young women who were unbelievably loud. They had voices which penetrated everywhere. All of the diners in the area were annoyed. These loud mouth women should have been seated in a private area which the restaurant has."

  • "This is my first negative review ever and while the food and greeters and support staff was terrific--excellent faro salad and steaks--our waitress left us high and dry. She ignored us for the first 20 minutes we were seated! Strangest thing, but we felt neglected all night by the waitress, and i write only so that they restaurant can get some of those warm folks who greet you up at front area to help attend to you once you are seated!

  • "We were celebrating our anniversary. They seated us outside at a nice table except it was right next to the waiters station. Very poor design on that. Service was attentive. There was a new waiter training who was very nice and attentive. My husband had short ribs and they were delicious but the crab meat that came with them was not good at all. The crab meat tasted old and dry. My filet was delicious and cooked perfectly. I recommend the calamari appetizer. It was delicious. This place is nice for the price point, has great views of the water but food could be way better"

  • "We enjoyed outstanding service and exception food. Will definitely go again. The filet trio was perfection, melt in your mouth good. My partner had the hanger steak and declared it was divine. There was a very pleasant ambiance and we really enjoyed the evening. Based on this experience I would recommend to all my friends."

  • "A completely perfect dining experience was destroyed when my server, in front of my date, informed us they would not honor the Passport card. I was mortified. This was especially frustrating since I specifically mentioned in the Opentable notes PLEASE DO NOT MENTION PASSPORT CARD AT THE TABLE. To compound my frustration. I even called the day before to instruct the hostess, PLEASE DO NOT MENTION PASSPORT CARD AT THE TABLE. Moreover, the second entree should have been honored. When I called back to express my frustration and humiliation I received no satisfaction. I use to frequent all the Cohn restaurants this practice will abruptly end. FYI: This is the first and last time I use Passport."

  • "A great special monte cristo made with prosciutto and brea....the hangar streak Benedict had dry bernaise sauce but they comped that meal even though I said it wasn't necessary. I always pay for extra avocado on my Benedict too. I have enjoyed the Benedict 4 times in the past...this was an off day."

  • "This restaurant is in a fantastic location. We sat on the patio right by a window and enjoyed the ocean breezes coming through the window, and watching the people go by. The restaurant is lovely, comfortable and clean. My friend ordered the lobster roll and said it was very good. I ordered the 333 Market Salad. The greens were fresh and crisp, the dressing was light and tasty. The only problem was the chicken was dry, which surprised me because I have always enjoyed excellent meals at Cohn Restaurants. The service was not quite as efficient as I expected, but very friendly. They may have been short handed. All in all it was a very nice experience and we'll go back. "

I loved my peach bellini like martini. Three of us ordered fish dishes and had no complaints. My husband said his steak was the best he has had at any restaurant, and he wants to go back just for that. We will definitely return when in the area. "

  • "We had a nice night out. Service was good but the food was not. Our meals came out before our appetizer. It was very apparent they sat under the warmer till we got them back. The sushi roll app was good. My filet was cooked perfectly on the half that hadn't been sitting under the warmer. Potatoes tasted instant. Steak was super salty. My daughter got seated ahi. Way over salted and had a funny taste. Her rice was crunchy and bol choy was so mushy and salty it was inedible. Dessert was entirely forgettable. We had a great server and enjoyed our night out, but would not go back here again. "

  • "It was dinner for 4 of us that had just been married that day. The dinner was in celebration of our marriages. The service was great and the food was delicious. But were charged for "Congrats" desserts that we didn't order. The desserts were brought to us as if they were a gesture of the restaurant in celebration of our marriages, which we were most appreciative of. But realized the next day that we were charged $5 each for the desserts. It's not the money, but just the principle!"
