    Very good food. We've been here before and will come back again. I gave 4 stars for service instead of five because the prices are too high. We had tea and a low-end entre and the tab was about $75/person including tip. The food and dining experience were good but not twice as good as a "regular" restaurant. We would come more often if the prices were more affordable.

    We waited forever for our appetizer and it took forever. The attempted to eat the over breaded tempura that we usually have. After picking up our plates the waiter asked us if we would like coffee with our desert.... I asked him what course did he think we were on? He thought we had finished as the kitchen was bringing us our desert. I had to inform him we had not had dinner yet...Embarrased he went to the kitchen and the food was still no ready. Three times he went back. Finally food came and was not edibile. Overcooked, even the second try not right. Still no manager...well enough said...we probably wont be going back

    333 is one of our favorites and we chose it for a birthday celebration. The food and drink was fantastic, but ruined by a server who could not get anything right. I expect she was inexperienced, untrained and not ready to be on her own.

    After being seated, we had to wait 15 minutes before being greeted by our server. She took our drink and appetizer order and told us we would have water and bread soon. She returned 10 minutes later with drinks. Still no water or bread. Our appetizer arrived but she disappeared for awhile. We were almost through with the appetizer when we had to ask for bread. The seafood tower was OK but not the quality expected for the price. The bread was also disappointing. We left without ordering dinner. Went someplace else and were happy we did.

    I am used to quality at a Cohn restaurant and 333 Pacific doesn't disappoint. The food and service were excellent. My hubby & I shared the Tempura Veggie Basket and it was an ample hors d ouerve for the two of us. The dipping sauces were tasty and complemented the veggies very well. I had the special which was a penne pasta with lobster, bacon, yellow bell pepper, & tomato. Delicious but rich. My husband had the pork wellington and it was fabulous. Presentation on both dishes was perfect. This was our third visit to 333 over a period of 6 months. It's a very nice restaurant with beach views if you dine on the enclosed patio (which we opt for as the inside bar area can get noisy). It is on the pricey side but well worth the $$$!

    We have been going here for special occasions for the last few years. The food has been great in the past but lately it seems that quality control has been slipping. I ordered the scallops, and although they tasted good, the presentation was poor and the consistency in the size was really bad (think 5 medium scallops and 1 miniature). My husband ordered the Filet trio and the center one was completely raw. A few weeks ago when we dined at the restaurant we were even billed for a bottle of wine we didn't order (that was corrected but should not have happened). I don't know if they have changed cooks or if someone is not checking the quality as of late, but we will be trying different restaurants for our special occasions.

Our seats provided a beautiful view of the pier, ocean, and sunset. The food was absolutely perfect in everyway and the portions were large! This restaurant is definitely the best in Oceanside!

    Have been to 333 Pacific a number of times and have never had anything other than stellar service. This time though, our server seemed to have forgotten about us. Never mentioned the specials and only came by the table once at the end of the meal to check on us. I know he had an off night though, he dropped full glasses on the floor two different times at other tables. Food was terrific, as always. Highly recommend the compressed watermelon salad, the cucumbers were marinated in something that was salty and basil flavored and contrasted nicely with the sweet watermelon and balsamic. It was our 30th anniversary but the first anniversary couple next to us had a different server and was treated far better.

    Rode the train up fron San Diego. Yummy appetizers and fun choosing from huge selection of Vodkas in the lounge. Dinner was delicious and view spectacular. Great people watching. Servers were attentive, prompt, and fun! We were celebrating our upcoiming wedding and they brought us a surprise special dessert to eat on the train back south. Very fun evening. We will be back with friends! (Appetizers in the bar could have been a delicious meal in themselves but you don't want to miss the view from the dining area!!)

    Dined on 7/6/2014
    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
