Hostess (on 10/24) and waiter (Connor) were fantastic.
Great meal at the beach. Good food, good service. Made a reservation and glad we did.
Excellent service and food - awesome location right on the beach in Cardiff.
Every time we travel to the San Diego area, we do a 5-mile beach walk followed by a lovely lunch at the Pacifc Coast Grill. The food is great (fish &chips, gourmet salads, etc), service has always been good, and the views are beautiful! See you next time!
Absolutely amazing experience. Waiter was so polite and the food was AMAZING. 10/10 recommend.
Great location right on the beach. Great food and service-would definitely recommend
Got together with a couple girlfriends to catch up; server was amazing, food was great, view was incredible!
PCG NEVER disappoints. It was my birthday and celebrated the night with my two sons. Such a treat. Top service, ambiance and delicious food. Can't say enough. Come here for it all ❤️
Great food and service as always
Went last month and couldn't wait to go back again. The Poke Bowl ia the BEST anywhere and the complmentary birthday dessert was scrumptious. Treat yourself.
Valet parking, beautifull view, excellent service, delicious food
Waiter Omar was great! Very attentive and timely. My grilled salmon was excellent. Our daughters Sea bass (the special) had absolutely No flavor. My wife’s shrimp dumplings didn’t appear to contain shrimp but rather had a shrimp based mash. Her Dungeness crab cakes were far inferior to others we have enjoyed in the area like at King’s Fish House. Overall, go for the ambiance of sitting right on the beach and enjoy the great service, but don’t expect high end cuisine like you should be getting at the prices!
We always enjoy our visit/meals at the Pacific Coast Grill. Definitely one of my favorite restaurants. The view can't be beat!
Great outdoor seating. Our service was a bit slow and the server was not up to par for the price point, but the food and view were fantastic
The local sea bass is always the best bet if you want a full serving of succulent fish atop garlic mashed potatoes, spinach with a tomato relish . Pair it with a crisp Pinot Grigio and if you have room the chocolate custard dessert is ample for 2. Love the upstairs deck to keep out of the wind with the best view of the beautiful Pacific Ocean.
Steve, our waiter was very nice. There were 5 of us and each ordered something different and we were all very pleased. We each had a cocktail... 4 martinis and they had the tiny ice shards that we all loved and a Bloody Mary that also was great! We sat outside, the weather and the view couldn’t have been better. It was all delightful and we’ll be back.
Beautiful setting and good food! Only negative was people walking by on the public access path right in front of our table.
I met two of my best friends to celebrate one of their birthdays and we were seated outside right by the beach. Service was great! We ordered a cocktail and they were delivered very quickly. One had the mahi mahi sandwich, one had the surf and turf burrito and I had the seafood cobb salad. All were excellent with large portions. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time. This restaurant never disappoints.
My friend is leaving to San Antonio Texas . Been very good friends for a long time . Not sure when her and husband will be back. He left first. She will be leaving this week
Calamari was great. Sliders were okay. Fries were not good.
Great place to take someone on a date. Try the coconut crusted mahi with extra sauce it's amazing.
Food, service and views were excellent. We went back the next day for lunch!
Great expanded outside patio- absolutely love the food and the ambience! Serviced is always good. There was a little confusion on our seating this time, but it was quickly resolved. One of our favorite restaurants!
The guacamole and chips appetizer was disappointing- the guacamole was bland and lacked flavor but the entrees were wonderful. Great service and ocean view
Excellent food, ambiance, service and sunset. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience! Always love the Ahi Tuna dish and yummy pineapple martinis.
We love the PCG and were delighted to enjoy their great food/service/patio again.
First time back in seven months food was great service was amazing my favorite Cardiff spot
The food and ocean view were both extraordinary. The service was prompt and friendly.
It was an ok experience
It was our 3 years marriage anniversary. The food was really fresh and delicious! Cocktails 5 out of 5! The service was outstanding
Our waiter even brought us little dessert as a compliment which was very nice!
Overall just amazing experience and very delicious food!
Typical California elites attitude, Says business casual would have been better in surf trunks torn shirt and crappy van shoes. Went for the date night, dressed up for one another and that was great for us but a waste for this place.
I have been to this place off and on since 2000 and now will not bother except maybe for an overpriced drink and good appetizer.
Food; the crabcakes and garlic truffle fries were excellent. The two fish dinners that we had were just ok nothing special to much sauce it overtook the real flavors of the fish
I am not easily impressed but the food and cocktails were AMAZING. You cannot get a better sunset view either. We had an excellent experience and will definitely be going back for some more surf and turf and the worlds best sushi roll.
Pleasant and professional service. Location outstanding. Food close to outstanding.
Had the lobster and shrimp chowder. Did not taste any lobster and bowl contain 3 tiny shrimp. Taste was good but add more shrimp and lobster. Entree was the seabass which was to bland for my liking. Margarita was great and bread pudding dessert was amazing. Server was great as well.
Celebrated 2 birthdays while there. The service was great. We were on the patio with a beautiful view of the beach and ocean. We received a complimentary dessert to share. All in all, a great place to escape to!
I had a filet mignon and I thought it was cooked a day or two earlier.
Great food and service as always! This is our favorite place and never fails to please. This dinner was delicious, but rushed! We ordered all our food at once, which may have been a mistake on our part but we have done this before here. All our appetizers, drinks, and dinner salad came out at once? We had no room on our table and then our wine and glasses came and shortly after our dinner. We rushed though our apps, before dinner drinks and salad to make room for our main entree. Not sure if its because of covid-19 or because we ordered all we wanted initially. Not sure.
For the amazing ocean views and excellent service, yes, I recommend everyone to go there. For the food? nah, it's not that great... portions are fairly large but quality is mediocre.
Rock and Roll sushi was about 1/3 size of preCovid!!
