    We went dressed up thinking the 333 was going to be a fancy restaurant, but we found others in shorts and t-shirts. The patio is not fancy or upscale, just a regular ole patio, of course you get to hear loud booming music from cars going by that kind of degrades the experience. too. Not on the scale of Vintana!

    We went here for an anniversary and were delighted. All of the starters (clams, mussels, vegetable tempura, salmon) were fresh and prepared perfectly. The entrees (NY steak, lamb, scallops, and gnocchi) were prepared exactly as requested and were delicious. The service was attentive, but the wait for food was a bit long, but no unreasonable. We shall return !

    Mu husband and I went for our anniversary. The food was good as was the service. we didn't enjoy the noise level and the chairs on the patio were uncomfortable. We would go again but ask to be seated inside at a table. It was a Saturday noght and very crowded. We would have enjoyed a quieter environment.

    It was standing room only when I walked in at 6 PM on a Saturday. Glad we made reservations. Got a booth as requested, but as the sun was setting one person at our table got a blinding glare of the sun there was no way to block it as the blinds are on the outside patio and we were inside. Why not just not seat at that table until the sun sets or moves past that position. Other booths were open with no glare from sun. Food was good. My filet, flavorful, had large chunk of gristle in the middle which was surprising. We felt very rushed by our waiter. I hadn't seen my dinner companions for a while so we were catching up we felt pressure to stop and figure out our order, being told the kitchen was busy and we should put our order in.

    Great, friendly service. Ordered the Rib Eye steak and Lobster Tails for two, which included mashed potatoes and green beans. Every thing was fantastic tasting, although there was quite a bit of fat on the steaks. Cream Brulee was disappointing, and the milk served with our coffee was bad. I actually left still hungry. Hmmm. But let be clear about one thing- the service was awesome.

    My husband and I came here for our wedding anniversary dinner. We had a few drinks in the bar, which were amazing! Then we were seated at a table on the patio with a beautiful view of the ocean. This is where the dinner started to go downhill. It took our waiter 10 min to even greet us. Once we ordered our meal, it took about 15 min to get our soup and salad. About 45 min later we had still not received our dinner. Our waiter had not even been by to check on us or let us know why it was taking so long. My husband finally stopped a manager that was walking by and asked what was was going on! They apologized and said the kitchen was backed up. We eventually got our dinner and we had 2 different managers come to our table and aplogize.

    Busy night but still very slow service. Food only so so considering the price. Gnocchi very dry and rubbery with no sauce. Probably a great place for beach goers who like to party loud. Would not recommend for an elegant, quiet dinner. Have been to Ventana in Escondido--take some lessons from them. I will not be back. If you're a beach babe and love to drink and yell, this is your place.

    The service was impeccable. Friendly, with helpful welcome suggestions, non pushy- the best service we have had! James and the Chef catered to my allergy issues with ease, and he recommended an amazing change to my cocktail which I will use from now on! Dinner was fabulous, one of the best, the view of the water was gorgeous, and all in all- we'd say it was up there in our top five experiences of all time. Will definitely be going back when we next visit California. After dinner, the beach was RIGHT THERE to go for a walk. This place is not to miss.

    We have come here for years and love this place BUT these past 3 times (over these past 6 mos) the food service has been really slow. The items we have had before are not prepared completely, until we point it out. I feel bad for the server because it is not their fault. Seems like the kitchen is having some issues. Thinking twice as to whether to come here anymore, which is disappointing, since this was our go to place all these years. By the way, the martini's are awesome!

    Brought my friend here for a birthday lunch, sat on the patio, gorgeous day, spectacular view, and the fresh fish featured that day was yellowtail. I had the special, blackened yellowtail tacos - served with a potato zucchini hash that was also memorable. My friend had the fresh grilled yellowtail on a pretzel bun, served with awesome fries - huge portions and equally delicious. Very impressive! We'd both been here before but we appreciate that they open for lunch on Fridays - great choice!

    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.

    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.

    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!!)
