This was such a nice surprise! Enough variety to pacify the pickiest teenager. The place was busy, but our waiter took good care of us. The price was very reasonable for the group, and the children were able to relax. I shall look forward to coming back again.

First time here and I will definitely be back. Our server was great. The food was great. It was a bit loud, but still worth going!

When I booked on Open Table I requested a booth and was told one was not available even though there were booths unoccupied. They reluctantly gave us one of the booths. When booked on Open Table I noted today is my daughter’s birthday. My daughter ordered tacos and sent them back because they were cold. The server took them away and returned with two minutes retuned to the table with the same tacos. No mention was made of my daughter’s birthday so why do they ask when a reservation is booked? We left with my daughter not having a birthday dinner after a long day at work. Very disappointed!

We made a reservation via open table and they had it on their calendar. The hosts were great, very welcoming! We sat in the bar while waiting for our reservation and the service was great. We were helped right away.

Dinner was good. The service was great. We got our food in a timely manner. We ordered an appetizer which came before meals. That was great. All the dinners were really tastefully. We had a grilled salmon. We had the teriyaki chicken bowl and fish and chips. We had the shrimp tacos which were a little disappointing. Each taco had three tiny small shrimp and than filled with cabbage

Overall it was a great place to have dinners

Must admit that I was disappointed. The place was very noisy and the service was slow and not very good. I ordered a dish that had multiple fish and it was all deep fried that I did not feel was appropriate. Parking was also a problem.

I’ve been to Pacific Catch several times now and really enjoy it. I’ve been for lunch and dinner. The food is good value and tasty. The servers are very friendly. Our stroller has been accommodated without an issue. This is now our go-to for a nice (yet unpretentious) meal out.

Good restaurant overall. Food is very good; fresh, healthy and innovative. Server Evelyn was very nice but it took almost an hour to get the food after we ordered. Don't know what the problem was. Atmosphere was relaxed and pleasant.

Sat outside, very noisy. Had marked that it was our anniversary, but no indication that was noticed. Arrived on time for the reservation, had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. Food was good, drinks were definitely pricey. Will eat there again.

I took my wife there for her birthday. It was our first trip, and I selected it based on reviews in OpenTable. We were not disappointed. We started with the coconut shrimp appetizer as well as a bowl of salmon chowder. Both were delicious, but the chowder was extra special!

My wife had a three taco tray, one each of chicken, beef and salmon. The portion size was a little more than she could handle, so I willingly helped her with the part she could eat. I had the yellowfin platter. The food was delicious. It was priced reasonably, especially for such a good meal.

The noise level was moderate, but not to the point of distraction. We had a booth, though most seating appears to be open tables throughout.

I highly recommend this place and cannot wait to go back again.

The primary reason I like to go to Pacific Catch is that they pay attention to sourcing sustainable seafood — and that makes a big difference to me. The food is usually pretty good; not necessarily 4 stars but reliable in a “find your faves and you won’t go wrong” kind of way. The servers (like the nice lady we had this night) usually try very hard to give great service, but the host staff can sometimes be feckless and borderline rude, like when they’re making small talk among themselves while making customers wait beyond their reservation time, seating parties out of order, etc. (I know that seating management can be difficult, but a few kind words go a very long way toward making your guests feel acknowledged and valued). On the whole, I go back to Pacific Catch because it’s a known quantity, issues and all; just imagine how awesome they’d be if they paid even more attention to the customer experience and treated you well from the moment you walked in the door!

I went for lunch to catch up with a friend and was not rushed to finish our visit, which was nice. I ordered the original poke bowl with ahi tuna, but was brought a salmon and pesto poke bowl. Though it looked very good, I sent it back for my original order, and I'm glad I did, because it was very tasty. My friend had the Thai Brussel sprouts , which were cooked perfectly and she had the sushi tacos, one ahi and one yellowtail which she really liked. They now have burgers, both fish and Wagyu ones. We'll have to try that next time. The food is always good and fresh; definitely recommend Pacific Catch.

We visited on a Saturday night, and it was pretty packed and loud. Luckily, we were seated in the screened in outdoor area, which should be quieter. However, we were seated next to a large party that was VERY loud. We had a great server who was very attentive but not annoyingly so. Favorite thing for me is that you can sub in tofu for your protein in many dishes.

I was very pleased with the service and meals. Prices were reasonable and the bottle of wine that we ordered was at an acceptable cost point. I would have ordered oysters but there wasn't much variety and 18 dollars for half a dozen was a bit much. The noise level was truly frightening. Since when do restaurants think that the decibel level should match a high school cafeteria? What I found refreshing is that the manager stopped by and gave us an appetizer gratis, saying that he was sorry that service was slowed by the kitchen being overwhelmed with orders. Nice gesture but we hadn't complained, so he may have confused our table with someone else.

Wonderful salmon entree with flavorful disuse and grilled Brussel sprouts excellent. Chirashi trio of poke never disappoints especially the Serrano flavor.

Spicy Pacific cocktail is fantastic

I love that Pacific Catch is dog-friendly. I had lunch with two friends and it was great eating on the patio so I was able to bring my dog. I dropped by a few days before and asked about bring a dog and the host recommended that I make a reservation and mention in the "notes" that my dog was coming with us, and to make the reservation for lunch as early as I can in the day as the patio fills up pretty quickly, which I did.

Lunch was great, service was outstanding, and the food was excellent as always. We had a terrific time, and my friends were very happy to meet my pup.

Everything was great except that the waitress did not write down our order, and then failed to put in our appetizer order. When she brought our dinners, I asked about it and you could tell she remembered, and she said she did not put in the order. Personally, I have never liked having the server try to memorize my order. Case in point. Write it down! Other than that, it was a perfect evening.

Food and service by Joe great. However , wine service was abysmal. Way overpriced for amount served for carafe. They use mini wine glasses, “carafe” has equivalent of one (maybe) wine glass $13. Really? For house wine??? Never again
