We have been here many times before. We were surprised how poor both the food and service was this time. My wife couldn’t cut her ahi tuna with a knife when usually a fork will suffice. My Asian dish was so salty it burned. Three of the four of us left the majority of our meals on our plate. The waiter never stopped by once to ask how it was. Not once. My wife would have sent hers back. He showed with the check after being absent and said to my 6 year old, the only empty plate (plain pasta) and said how was your meal. Didn’t ask the adults. I left a 9% tip which I have never done but both the food and service were bad.
We thoroughly enjoyed PCG while in California vacation!
The place is great . Atmosphere awesome. Only issue I had and did not complain ~ I was there with a friend I had not seen in over 20 years, had requested a table at the front by the water . I was there 20 min early and was told to go upstairs and they would come find me, no one ever did. I was seated at a a table int he corner with a partial view , when my friend got there I had given my name to them for them to come find me , he waited downstairs for over 30 min , so finally by text we met up .
I had ordered a extra dirty martini and there blue cheese olives ~ was served a reg house martini with three mushy gross olives
He ordered two beers and got one and the other one never came and we ordered him another one and charged for three .
We both ordered soup , it was very cold and waitress did not come back for some time so we just ate it and laughed about what a beautiful place it is , and so much potential bit poor drinks and cold food.
I had asked for a special occasion desert , never came.
we gave up . enjoyed each others company and went on ,,
We are not young ~ we are in out 50's and not just complaining for nothing , the gentleman I was with has been in the bar and restaurant business for 30 years.
Your place and I would recommend it. It just sucks to have a $153 bill and $35 tip and get poor drinks and cold food and no celebration desert . Out of our ethic on dining out
I will be back ,,,,but will be a little more picky this time
Really upset. Made special reservations while my mother was in town. Got here early (4:00pm) with reservation at 5:00. Requested special seating outside when made reservation. Arrived early and they said they would seat us at 4:30pm. Come 5:00 they had let random people from the bar take the special seating outside even though they wouldn't seat us with a reservation.
Did not go and tell the randos without reservations to move. Let us wait watching randos on their phones instead of ordering dinner. So ridiculous. Finally sat at 5:05 so 35 minutes later than confirmed and waitress ignored us.
Poor poor service. Haven't even ordered our food. Sitting here neglected and hour and a half after arriving. Won't be back. Super disappointed.
Update: lobster bisque = potato soup. Not good.
Great place to have dinner and watch the sun set. The food was good and the service was excellent. It is closed to our house, so we will be back.
Great service , food and location
Celebrated my friends birthday by having brunch here. The service was good and the food was absolutely to die for!! Not to mention the beautiful view, can’t get any closer to the beach because you’re already on it! Definitely will come back
Had relatives from the midwest in took them to Pacific Coast grill. The entire experience was outstanding. The food was delicious and the service excellent. Our go to place to impress anyone.
Celebrating Valentine's Day on Friday; perfect evening, comfortable booth with Southern Cali sun sent. Food was every bit outrageous as we have come to expect from Pacific Coast Grill. Started with cocktails and half order of oysters, delicious little local fellows, fresh beet salad split for two. My beautiful wife chose 6oz. Filet with 8oz. Lobster and left not a morsel to bring home. I chose Salmon, first time I tried at PCG and it was perfectly prepared, generous portions served with rice and vegetables. Managed a second cocktail and passed on dessert. The only disappointment is we wont be back till next month! FIVE STARS
This is my favorite spot for lunch in California. The outdoor patio is wonderful! The food & drinks, great! It is as close as you can get to sitting in the Ocean while dining. The staff is always friendly.
Great vistas, excellent food, excellent service. An all around very good time.
Great table by the window. Excellent food. Why doesn't the check list above have recommend for dinner? Because dinner was great.
Dinner was so good! Love this place for dinner. It was better than lunch.
Service was good. Food was so so. The sauce on the seabass was too sweet.
Amazing! Always the best drinks, food, and service.
Great ambiance for a Valentine’s Day evening. The food was very good and the service was excellent. My friend actually stopped by to congratulate the manager on the excellent service.
Overall, food was great. My only complaint is my steak/lobster stack was room temperature, while my hubbies paela was steaming. My plate sat a not waiting for the paela.
The best restaurant on the coast! Great coastal decor, view of the surf/ocean/surfers/paddleboarders. Steps from the sand on Cardiff beach. Delicious and varied menu options... sushi, poke, salads, chicken, sandwiches, entrees.... nice, extensive cocktail menu. Our absolute go-to restaurant for us and all of our out of town visitors!!!
The food and service was outstanding. Our waitress, Megan V did an excellent job. Made us feel relaxed and not hurried.
