    Our service was pretty good; if we had to wait too long the Waiter came over to apologize and said it would be soon. Coffee was awful- neat idea w our own pots, but soooo weak. No body to it ay all. Main courses were fantastic; all 6 really enjoyed their meals. Dessert- not so; bread pudding was rubbery and tasteless. Cherry pie ice-cream was made w maraschino cherries? Really? Too sweet. Maybe pie cherries.

    This was a great find. Food was good, prices were moderate, service was great. We ate outside so it was very good for conversation. We will definitely go back or try one of their other locations. We didn't see any kids there but it certainly would be ok to bring them.

    I went twice recently - both lunch and dinner. The food was good (better at lunch!), and the service very good both times. There were three ladies at lunch, and we went a little late - 1:00. We all enjoyed our meals, especially the salmon chowder. It wasn't terribly crowded and we were able to have good conversation. When we went to dinner (two couples) on a Saturday evening, it was so noisy in the main dining room that we all had to shout. (The "energetic" choice for noise level annoys me, because I think it should say "too noisy to talk.")

    If you decide to dine at Pacific Catch in Mountain View, enjoy the outdoor dining space and the festive ambiance. Service is quick and friendly. The food, in a word, is "meh." Everything was good but not great. We had the poke trio: the original, the Californian, and the special salmon poke. Everything was well prepared, but nothing out of the ordinary (I've definitely had better poke). The spicy tuna roll was again, just okay. It tasted fine, but not better than a spicy tuna roll from a good sushi place. The salmon salad was the most disappointing. The salmon filet looked like it was press-formed (think tyson's chicken breasts) and pre-cooked and reheated. Other elements of the salad were fresh. If you like seafood, go to Sam's.

    I took a friend to Pacific Catch for lunch. We sat outside on the patio and it was very nice. We each enjoyed a rice bowl. They are very large so we both took half home for lunch the next day. The food was nice. The Thai curry bowl was very good!

    The indoors noise level is unbelivable, fortunately we were seated outdoors. Service was wonderful, and the poke fantastic. I wish we had stopped there: the entrees were bland, my black cod was very overcooked and the sauce too cloying. Drinks are very good.

    Service was very good. The rice and vegetable and fish dishes were excellent Pacific rim food. The MaiTai was the best I tasted in a long time. Also went with a group from work and the buffet they gave us was filling. The happy hour starters were extensive and inexpensive for the amount of food you get.

    The food was not bad, but the service was very disappointing. Within 5 minutes of arriving at the restaurant, my girlfriend had sauce spilled on her and I was hit in the eye by the hostess. The service was incredibly slow and we were practically ignored when trying to get someones attention. I would probably order out from this restaurant, but likely wont dine in again.

    1/2 of our groups meals arrived cold. Manager offered to redo them, but after a long wait for the food, we said no thank you. They took those items off our bill. Our experience was ruined with cold food, extremely noisy and top it off with a server with no personality that seemed to be unhappy to be at work. we won't go back for quite sometime, hoping they fix some flaws of a new restaurant.

    The meal selection reminded me of my vacations in Hawaii and Tahiti. I really enjoyed the food choices over there, so naturally I really enjoyed the food at Pacific Catch. I was fortunate on this day to be able to take a long lunch to catch up with a friend. This was the perfect place for that. I don't know what it would be like if I had a regular lunch one-hour to contend with; the restaurant and servers were hopping. I, however, had a great time. The servers checked on us twice, it was enough times as we did not want to be disturbed. I'll be back with other friends!

    Literally and figuratively. On the one side, it is kind of in a parking lot, but they have done a great job making it feel like a neighborhood city type of restaurant. the outside dining was fun. Nice decor that definitely puts it a step above the local chains. Friendly staff. We went for a birthday dinner and got a nice booth for 6 in the corner outside.

    Excellent menu with tasty, diverse seafood offerings. Some fine beers on tap, but the "specialty" cocktails are a joke, basically lots of fruit juice and syrups mixed with minimal amounts of alcohol...over-priced and dilute. The major problem with this place is the unrelenting upselling that goes on from the moment you sit down...the waiters (pretty much all of them, as i've been there a dozen times in the past three months) pressure you to buy cocktails, the highest priced items on the menu, and desserts. I imagine there's a team meeting in the restaurant before each shift and the manager pleads, "Sell, sell, sell!" like a used car salesman. Luckily, you can just ignore them and enjoy the very good food!

    We went for the first time and were seated outside because an indoor table was not immediately available (in spite of our reservation...turned out Paul Martin's had a fire which forced both restaurants to be temporarily evacuated) so they were a bit behind). We both had a seared Ahi rice bowl. At Nicole's suggestion we both had half rice and half salad. It was delicious! The tuna was seared perfectly and the dressing was delicious. Half and half is the way to go on this dish.

    We had the salmon entree, poke (3 styles), sushi roll, and cocoanut shrimp with sweet potato fries. All were OK, but low in flavor. In particular, the poke marinades overwhelmed the raw tuna. The marinade on the original and hazelnut poke tasted the same - like a commercial teryaki sauce and very salty with no other flavor. The "California" poke tasted mainly of mayonnaise with no flavor from the "crab" - in fact, the "crab" (which is typically a textured fish) wasn't recognizable in flavor or texture. Service was OK, but the waiter was very insistent that we order his favorite variety of poke and then very insistent that we agree that we liked it. Prices were high for the food served and food was not as good as at many MV restaurants.
