Great restaurant. True modern fine dining. I liked menu, good fish choice. Our waiter Joe was very knowledgable and provided detailed descriptions that matched what we tasted later.
The 3 of us were all eating keto diets and found the Seafood Cobb perfect for this meal.
Although the view was beautiful and the food was pretty good, it was so noisy it was difficult to have a good conversation at a table of 5 on a Monday! So noisy we declined to order dessert. The service was alright, even though we weren't asked if we would like a second cocktail. Worth a lunch visit.
Pro: Very nice scenic view, good food, and attentive service.
Con: Terrible parking situation, table cleaning not thorough, when asked for straw was dropped in front of me bare-handed.
One of our favorite restaurants! Food is always delicious and the ambiance is great. Sometimes service can be a little slow but it's not bad. LOVE LOVE PCG!
Food and view was great, service was slow and they seemed unprepared for us
Wonderful outdoor patio dining right on the beach, a rare opportunity in Encinitas. Gorgeous restaurant, excellent food! Great cocktails. We went with friends from out of state and it blew their minds. Great wait staff, very attentive.
Great ambience! Beautiful setting! Delicious seafood! Wonderful service!
We had a very pleasant late lunch celebrating a birthday with family. The service was excellent -we didn’t feel rushed. And they were very accommodating when I called to ask if we could move our reservation out due to family members stuck in traffic.
A simply fantastic afternoon. Really good food, moderately priced and you can't beat the view. Great service and friendly hostesses.
We enjoyed so much that we ate there twice this week. The views are astounding. Absolutely beautiful. The food was fantastic. We especially liked the lobster tacos and the chicken sandwich. Highly recommend! Go check it out. We will be back.
What an amazing experience. The staff was accommodating and very attentive. We had made a request for upper deck outdoor seating and the hosts and servers kept us informed on the status of our seating. They were able to seat us outside within 15 minutes of our original reservation on a busy evening. The food was fantastic. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
The downstairs inside is noisy. Food is good and cocktails were a little weak. Decent moderately priced wine list.
I used to be a fan of PCG, but not any more. We were a table of 7 adults and 2 kids. I know that is a large table but this is a restaurant that is used to serving big groups and is typically busy on all evenings. However, when our food came it was average in quality and in a couple of cases barely warm. We ordered a bottle of wine before the entrees arrived. It didn't arrive until after everyone in our party had finished their entrees. We were told that only the manager could get the wine and he had been busy with another party. This seemed a fairly lame excuse for a bottle that was only $60. (l can see why a manager might be required to access the special, top end $250+ bottles). PCG has a great location but we won't be hurrying back.
Was overcharged for an item. Didnt asked for claims as it was 3 $ more. But would like to make a note of it in future when they bill customers.
Great place we visit every time we come to California!!
Outstanding food, service, and ambiance. DIned in the outdoor seating and enjoyed the view of the Pacific.
Been there before we really enjoy the view and service. Food is beautifully prepared and presented. The location is fabulous and is family friendly.
Outstanding venue, food and service. The hat trick for restaurants! Great view of the beach, super friendly servers and AMAZING food.
Food was great and our waitress was there for our every need.
Food was OK. Nothing really special. Service was good (Lane). Noise level was oppressive. Could not hear across our table. Setting along beach is super IF you have a beach front table.
It was fabulous! Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the service was excellent and food very very good! Must come again!! Dk
Great restaurant with amazing views. The selection was varied enough for even the pickiest eaters. The fish was fresh and prepared perfectly. Book a table at sunset for amazing views especially if you are lucky enough to get a patio seat.
Pacific Coast Grill continues to be our "first choice" for dining out on any occasion we're celebrating. We've dined her four times since Mother's Day...group of six for Brunch, outstanding food and service the best ever; two private dinners for my wife and I, one just a night out and most recently a celebration of getting re-engaged (new engagement ring that we couldn't afford in 1962)...ANOTHER TOP-NOTCH NIGHT!
All was great sitting outside and watching the sunset. Great service and ambience. Only small thing was that the Ahi tuna was too chewy in spots like it wasn't seared quite enough. All other dishes were perfect.
Delicious food! Excellent customer service! I think our server was Trish? She radiated kindness! We were there on Sunday 7/1 celebrating my boyfriend’s birthday. The hostesses were very sweet as well!! So great !!We will be back, hopefully soon!!
We have ate here at least 10 times. Always great service and great food. I believe it’s one of the best restaurants in San Diego, and we have ate at many.
Great food and service as always!
Great service and food. Best location possible in the area. Overall, a great place.
Wonderful meal, as always! Steaks were all cooked perfectly snd today’s special was outstanding.
Some of the best food going in Cardiff/Leucadia area. Great location - wonderful view. Excellent wait staff.
Beautiful birthday celebration. So happy we spent it at PCG.
The view of the Pacific Ocean is so "southern california" I grew up here and this is what most people can relate to when they see pictures of SOCAL coast line. The food was excellent the fish and chips supurb, great batter and very tasty fish. Their Bag O BOnes was also great with the Hawaiian sauce.
Service top notch waiter remembered it was our friends birthday and came out with a nice cheesecake dessert. I will go back in an instant. Bring out of town guests here but make reservations as this is a favorite summer spot.
Food was good, great ambience and the service was great!
Great place sitting right by the window for our 35th anniversary! Food, drinks, ambiance all excellent!
Very good Martini
Wonderful lunch on the beach! I love this restaurant!
great place. Upper patio a little noisy but the view is fantastic.
this is my number one place to go for the perfect dining experience. Well run, valet parking, the Ocean! is right there, great service, wonderful menu, food is fabulous
Muy buena comida y excelente atención
