    The best seafood restaurant in SD in my opinion. Weather permitting sit outside and watch the waves of the majestic Pacific Ocean!

    Service, drinks, appetizers and ambiance are always amazing. Main entrees, not so much. The pan seared sea bass was absolutely tasteless, veggies cooked nicely, but again…zero taste. The paella was way too saucy and the shell fish overcooked. Coconut crab crusted mahi mahi-mahi just ok and the cowboy steak was very fatty. I think they’re trying to be too fancy and not focusing on just making delicious food.

    The food was properly prepared and served in a very timely manner. Our server,Misael, was professional and congenial . He was very attentive, yet not overbearing. The other service staff assisting him were very courteous and helpful. All in all, it was a very pleasant dining experience. I am a seasonal resident of the area and have dined often at the Pacific Coast Grill and I have never been disappointed.
