We love going the Cajun Pacific.
It a drive for us but well worth it. Make sure you make a reservation. The place is tiny. Great flavores , fresh ingredients. Cheaper than a trip to New Oleans . Enjoy!
Only seven tables, this place is tiny. The food is fantastic - great seasonal ingredients. Adequate, good-value wine list.
This place never disappoints. Converted front of a typical San Francisco house, small, crowded and noisy, but good food, great maitre d', energetic kitchen.
We have been coming here for many years and always enjoy the food and the intimate surroundings. The place is small, the staff is small but the flavors are big. Authentic Cajun food mixed with fresh California ingredients. The only downside to this spot is how small and tight it is, but I guess that is part of the charm. Great food in the outer Sunset, well worth the journey.
Around the corner from us, so easy to visit. We've been there a number of times over many years. The kid's (now grown up) top restaurant. It is an intimate, cozy, relaxed destination that makes you wait for its consistently excellent fare. Cornbread muffins that demand seconds and could stand thirds, though unseemly gluttonous to ask. We started with unusually delicate mussels basking in flavor of its brilliant broth. When the main courses arrived we were met with plentiful slices of the most perfectly cooked duck draped across a bed of supple polenta anointed with sauce that complimented both... demanding a final finger-sweep to squeegee the last molecules off the plate. The crayfish pasta suffused in an elegant "fromage-y" cheese sauce with a piquancy that set off tender crayfish meat nestled in each bite. Plump succulent prawns pleasured another of us as we shared dishes tastes, and protected our own from depredation by our neighbors. All too soon, we were so full, we sat back in our chairs as if waiting for "one wafer thin mint" to blow us to smithereens. Yet, without shame, we descended upon the bread pudding which disappeared so quickly in a blizzard of spoons that I can't remember it was ever actually there.
Go with close friends for whom long conversations can make you forget how long it takes to be served, and yet never forget how good the slow unfolding meal is. You may as well be in France, where the wait is due to the care in preparation and respect for your evening, not in turning tables. And, signs on the wall are clear in saying as much.. "good things take time"
It's a very small and intimate venue. The decor is lovely and quaint and it feels very homey. It's a fun vibe yet slightly romantic and cozy. Very authentic and still unique!
Great chicken! Cool local slot!
Gumbo was good. Make reservations as it gets packed and the restaurant is really small. A good southern dining experience.
Third time I've been there....enjoyed the meals and restaurant each time. If you're thinking of trying the restaurant, I highly recommend the Portobello mushroom Wellington if it's on the menu that evening.
really great food in a causal, authentic room with nine tables. best soft shell crabs ever!
HAVE BEEN HERE SEVERAL TIMES AND WAS ALWAYS FABULOUS......HOWEVER HAD DESSERT THIS TIME AND MUST ADMIT THE BREAD PUDDING WAS A MISS.....TASTED OLD AND DRY......NEVER ORDER IT AGAIN....BUT MAIN COURSES ARE WONDERFUL AND SERVICE IS GREAT.
great food, wonderful atmosphere, excellent, attentive service….I highly recommend this restaurant
FOOD: food was perfect! Kudos to the chef!
SERVICE: waitress was friendly, hustling to get to all 7 tables (Thumbelina restaurant). Could have used one more wait staff, but I'm not sure if there was room for another wait staff.
PROBLEM: The issue came with getting seated. I wanted to have a good meal and have a chance to really chat with my new boyfriend. I had a 7:00 reservation but did not get seated until 7:35 pm! This was, by far, the LONGEST wait for a table WITH a reservation. Spoiled the ambiance for us. Once we ate, we just wanted to get out.
Our group of six included former residents of the Quarter in New Orleans. They praised the Cajun Style food and said the bread pudding was the best they had ever eaten. Friendly home style service.
Fifteen years. CP has been serving this tantalizing fare for 15 years. I almost don't want to tell other diners how stupendous the food is here. We shared three apps: the asparagus, the gumbo and the crawfish beignets. The asparagus had a light lemon sauce with a soft-cooked egg, much like the dish at Plaj-excellent. Beignets, light and perfectly browned with a zingy remoulade. Cornbread nutty and perfectly textured. My diner mates loved the gumbo-I love a different formulation but the flavors were nice. I had the bbq shrimp w/two sides: ratatouille and blue lake beans. Again, textures, flavors, presentation were perfect. Trout special? Excellent. If you're a wine snob, you may be disappointed, but get over it. Order the bread pudding.
CAJUN PACIFIC CONSISTENTLY SERVES FABULOUSLY FRESH, DELICIOUS FOOD IN A FUNKY SETTING......I'D BEEN THERE BEFORE AND ALL THE POSITIVES REMAIN THE SAME.....AMAZING HOW EFFORTLESSLY THE SERVER MANAGES TO PROVIDE ATTENTION TO A ROOM OF DINERS..TRULY A GEM! WILL DEFINITELY RETURN.
good food but it took an hour and an half to get to out table.
Great food, truly. Portobello Wellington was fantastic, as was every dish we ordered. Oysters with Brie also unbelievable. This chef has a unique talent for food, Cajun or not, we'd imagine.
Food was just OK. Nothing that great. Really like the space. However, the Check Please Bay Area review episode seems to have been filmed a very very long time ago.
am of Cajun descent, so I am picky and know what gumbo is. I had a bowl of the chicken and Andouille version and was not disappointed. The wine list is short but well chosen and reasonable. Having passed the gumbo test (most places don't even know the difference between a gumbo and a creole dish.....) I will be back for something more substantial. I heard talk of the softshell crab po boy and saw a creamy seafood pasta go by that looked fab.
