    in a very expensive city this is a restaurant that actually gives quality for the price. the recipes may not be 'foody' but there are culinary gems to be found on the menu amongst closer to 'comfort food' items. if you play their menu wisely you can have an excellent dinner here!

    Pacific Catch has solid food, and not just seafood. The variety of options here is amazing. We always order the Salmon Poke, which they've changed recently, but still great. Servers here are very knowledgable about what they sell. The beer selection is unmatched in the neighborhood, and the cocktails are craft. Parking in this area is horrible, but they do have a parking lot, if you're lucky enough to get a spot. Happy Hour every day? What? The bar was popping when we arrived, full of Happy Hour folks. Their Happy Hour menu has great offerings, and the bartenders are the best around for sure...no mustaches here. Go later if you want to avoid the kids, clearly families love this place. Overall, a good choice, even for a beer.

    Came for dinner on a Monday night. The restaurant was filled with a mix of families and young couples. The noise level was high, just bordering on headache producing, but the noise was from people not piped in music, so it added to the lively atmosphere of the restaurant. Food was good and the server was helpful in explaining and recommending dishes. We ordered the coconut shrimp appetizer, which came out still hot and crispy. The poke bowl was excellent and the rice bowl was flavorful. Prices are reasonable and portions are decent. There is also one out in the Marina if driving to 9th and Lincoln is too far out of the way.

    This is a great place to have lunch or early dinner if you're visiting the museums in Golden Gate park. The ahi wasabi bowl with brown rice and salad keeps us coming back again and again. The ahi is always fresh, the wasabi dressing has the perfect kick, the mix of greens is very nice, and the portions are generous. We mix it up a bit ethnically and as far as we're concerned their margaritas go very well with the rice bowls. On Tuesdays there is half price wine. What's not to like?

    This is in my commercial district, so I have been here several times, and it is my favorite restaurant in the 'hood. They are usually celebrating some seasonal seafood and this time it was salmon. I had the salmon tacos, and though the salmon was good, the tacos seemed less tasty than usual. Often I order a poke here and they have always been superb. Part of my problem was that I was in a group of 4 and we dined outside in front of the restaurant, adjacent a very busy intersection. Between the music playing and the street noise, I had a difficult time hearing conversation, but then I have hearing problems anyway. I recommend going inside, where the ambiance is very lively and light.

    I love pacific catch. I've been eating here for 5+ years about twice monthly. Whether it is their creative california cuisine, or new specials that are always there, this place is hands down one of the best. Probably the reason it is crowded all the time. Fresh food every time we've eaten there. Fish is always super fresh. Don't miss this one. Right across from Golden Gate Park at 9th and Lincoln, great location!

    Solid experience, every visit we have there. The pokes are authentic, and the rice bowls are iconic seafood SF. Our server this visit was very knowledgable, and accommodating to our needs. This is a very well run establishment. Decor is appropriate, cocktails are amazing. We continue to come back here for the great service and awesome cocktails. The host was very pleasant, and recognized us as an Open Table user. We had two managers stop by to make sure things were going smoothly. What a nice touch, that doesn't happen anywhere anymore... We will be back again soon. Parking is sparse, loud for some. Great up-and-coming neighborhood.

    The manager and kitchen were absolutely fabulous addressing severe allergies to nursing newborn infant who is allergic to dairy, soy, beef, wheat (baby has blood in stool for 4 days). They used a new pan with non-soy oil and reviewed all ingredients/sauces with my guest. Manager (5:30 pm on Tuesday June 17) anticipated needs of our party which included 5 kids under 6 and wheel-chair bound elderly. Waitress was pretty calm about all the requests.

    It was Father's Day and I went under open table to see what could possibly be available for dinner. It was close by and there was easy parking at the park even though I read there was a private lot which is another great thing to have. The Asian bowl was fantastic and with the brown rice with half rice/half veggies, I felt I ate something very healthy. The one piece coffee mochi I had was just enough. The server was very nice. The only downside as reported by my son was that there is very limited bathroom space and it was a bit of a line when he even attempted to go by. Thanks for asking!

    Excellent food and excellent service. We tried the rice bowls and sushi. Extra large serving size for both dishes. The size of the sushi can be smaller because the extra large pieces make a mess while eating and make them look more American sushi than actual Japanese sushi. The flavor of both the sushi and rice bowls were excellent though.

    My family went to Pacific Catch on Mother's Day and had a very nice time. My daughters loved the food. My wife got the Poke trio sampler and thought the flavors were a little too harsh and took away from the taste and freshness of the fish. I had the Ahi Tuni sandwich which was quite good.

    I love coming here for friendly service, a quick open table rez can be made minutes before you arrive and the food is always consistently good. I love having seafood in the inner sunset - I've lived here for years and something this casual and reliably good is great to have around - good drinks although I wish the selection was better and that they could blend drinks - but it's pretty easy to find something to order off the bar menu. It gets busy and a little loud but it's a great place for a quick sit down dinner with good service.

    We loved the food and the service was great. We got stuck in traffic heading to Pacific Catch, so I called and they were great about it. When we did arrive we were seated right away. Had the coconut shrimp appitizer delicous also shared a california roll which was amazing and real crab not the fake stuff. We had mahi tacos, salmon sandwich and also the 2 fish specials which were a swordfish dinner and a salmon dinner. All was cooked perfectly. Service was amazing too Diane took great care of us , our drinks were always full and the meal was timed perfectly. We will be back and the sooner the better.

    I went with my boyfriend for our weekly date night and was a little disappointed with the loud, kid-friendly atmosphere. Its a great place for families but not very romantic for couples. The service was outstanding, a little too quick actually! We sat down, ordered, served, and done within 30 minutes. It felt a little too fast food like and rushed. The food was good. Our calamari appetizer was a litte soggy though.
