The reviews do this place no justice. I’ve had only the best experience, every single time I’ve come here. Service A++ food is even better!

In terms of taking someone for a special occasion this would be a top choice. The selection of seafood was perfect, not too much to make picking difficult but not short either where you're left wanting more. Situated in a perfect place to either walk the pier or to catch a movie after makes the location a prime spot. The noise level however was my weak spot for a review. For an upscale place like this, I would expect the noise level to be slightly less to enjoy a conversation without having to raise your voice to talk across the table.

It was our anniversary and everyone from the server to the busboy wished us a happy Anniversary more than once . Great food and service was amazing. The noise level out side was quite loud as there were two parties that were a little too loud!

The food was wonderful & our waiter was very very attentive, only 1 thing we are not happy about it was , we are celebrating our friend 79’s birthday, our waiter bring him a small piece of cake for his birthday, we find out it was change half of the price of that little dessert we didn’t order & though it was Complementary. It’s not a big problem for $5 , but it just not what we expected.

Great food as expected from a Cohn restaurant. The noise level in the restaurant probably couldn’t be any louder. We go there for the good food.

I love the ambiance and food at 333 Pacific. It can get loud, especially if you are seated near the bar area. The quieter areas are away from the bar or in the patio area.

Food was really fantastic and our server was great. Nice selection on the menu. I wasn't expecting much since most places on the water focus on the view not the food but this was really a very good dining experience. I would definitely go back.

Husbands steak was overcooked and my steak trio wasn’t anything special. Not too impressed with this restaurant.

I took my mom out for a nice dinner. I asked the hostesses if we could have a nice seat and a friendly waiter they looked at me like I was being rude I tried make a light joke.

They continue to seat us in two different seats that were completely horrible in a restaurant that was only half full. We just so happened to meet a waiter as we were looking for a seat named Spencer he invited us to sit in his section he was Very accommodating, knowledgeable and an awesome host.

We had great cocktails and a delicious dinner. The only small complaint What is my moms mahi mahi was a little salty.

Our party of four, enjoyed our evening very much. Service was attentive, and of course the window table was fabulous for out of state guests. We started with 2 ceasar salads and 2 baby wedge salads. The salads were fresh, crisp and perfectly dressed. The 2 orders of trio fillets and one salmon were enjoyed by each person. I was torn by the house special of chilean seabass with saffron risotto and trio, so next time if they have that special I will give it a try, sounded so good. One diner who ordered the New York Steak commented the meat was tough, but flavorful. When I suggested sending it back, she balked as she did not want to wait to have her main course re-done then of course would be eatting alone. This was her choice, I am sure the kitchen would have been fine to prepare a new steak. Anyway, a good time was had by all and I woud recommend this restaurant to friends.

Reserved a table for 4 for a very special occasion. Table was waiting upon arrival and we were seated immediately. Having viewed the menu prior to arrival, we were impressed by the unique selections. The Calamari appetizer was fabulous. We enjoyed the New York, 20 oz rib eye, tenderloin and sea bass selections. All were delicious and arrived quickly. Drinks arrived quickly and the wait staff was very attentive. Everyone agreed this was a very special dinner and wish to say a sincere "Thank you" to the great management and staff for a wonderful evening!

Been her many times. This time we all got the Sea Bass special with Lobster polenta and it was fabulous. Sat on the porch outside looking at the O'side pier. For a Monday night it was certainly an off night and not crowded. Great time to go. Service was great. Food was excellent. Always a good time at 333.

We always reserve 333 for special nights or events. Very nice atmosphere, jumping bar, service always has been good! Was my husband's 89th birthday and he received a nice desert...… food very good, although for the first time, my husband ordered clams, and were very chewy. Not a good choice.

We enjoyed our orders: brussels sprouts appetizer and ahi bruschetta. The bread rolls were warm. I felt as if our drinks did not come as soon as expected. The linguini, cioppino and meatballs were all excellent. I alerted our server to my husband's birthday which was that evening. He received a nice complimentary hazelnut dessert with "Happy Birthday" etched in chocolate syrup. I know that the Cohen family restaurants add a 4% surcharge, but in our opinion, we do not care for this practice. Just raise the price of the menu items.

It was a very busy night but our cocktails were made just right, the food for all four of us was just what we expected. But the shining star was the wait staff. Very attentive and with a smile for all our wishes on an extremely busy evening. Fun festive place we will come to again and again.

The menu was outstanding. It had dozens of items I was looking forward to. Unfortunately, at 3:30 PM I had to order from the lunch menu. But, it was OK. My wife and I ordered drinks, wine, appetizers, main dish, dessert and wine. Only the wine was good. The food and drinks looked great, but they were terrible. The spicy Bloody Mary had some strange very acidic spice that was upsetting. My wife who is Mexican and likes spicy food but found the drink terrible. Then I had my Lamb Lollipops, which is just the trendy name for small lamb chops. They were cooked more than well done, which is a cooking sin for lamb. Then I had the fish special, which was Mahi Mahi. I like fish undercooked, but raw fish needs to be thin, not over an inch thick. It was brown on the outside but tough raw in the center. It was terrible. Then we had two deserts that seemed like they were leftover and not fresh.

But, I really enjoyed the Merlot and the view.
