    The menu offers a variety of interesting and different selections. The food was absolutely delicious. I was disappointed in the noise level which made it difficult to hear everyone at our table. I asked for an inside table and was escorted to the patio. I had to request that we move inside which happened but it rather tainted waht I was hoping would be a smooth dining experience, especially as we were hosting a group of VIPs. The service was disappointing as once we ordered and received our meals we did not see our server again. We would have ordered drinks. The ambience needs work as it appears rather bland which is out of sync with the delicious and beautifully prepared and plated food. Seriously, trays??? The dining rooms is confused - is it trying to appear like a cafeteria, fast food restaurant or dining room? In spite of the appearance of the restaurant and the rather disappointing service, I would dine there again

    Another excellent dinner at Pacific Catch. We had a bit of a snag trying to substitute the Mac Salad for fries. Our waitress told us "the chef doesn't do substitutions". What? When it is easily substituted why not? We ended up getting what we wanted for a $1 charge. That was silly, but fine. And who is this chef that says what a diner can and can't have? He's a freaking Corporate Chef. If he wants to have that kind of say - open your own restaurant and see how long you keep it open.

    For some reason they initially sat the five of us at a table for four but then after awhile they realized that we were not going to fit so they changed us to a larger table. Haley did a great job as server.

    The floor under the table where we were to be seated was filthy. We asked for a nearby table and were told it was part of a large group reservation. Later we observed that was false. Our server didn't seem to know what he was doing and was curt to a member of our party. When we needed assistance, nobody was to be found. However, the worst part was the food quality and taste wasn't close to our first dining experience. We will NOT be returning.

    My husband and I eat here frequently. We had family in from New England and they wanted to do some shopping. So we decided to do a late lunch at Pacific Catch in UTC. We love how dogs are allowed on the patio because we always bring our pups to UTC. The food and service were outstanding as always! I always get the sea bass with chimichurri and two vegetables as sides. It was so good! The vegetables are so good. I love how easy it is to eat healthy yet interesting food here. Everyone loved their meals. The service was efficient and super friendly as always.

    My husband and I saw this place in an article for best Tacos in San Diego so we had to try it while on our vacation. Well, it did NOT disappoint us at all! Our server, Dannah, was such a sweetheart and gave us great suggestions from the menu. The best were the Hot Fish tacos and Viet Hot Fish burger (definitely going back for those)!!! Fries, black beans, and miso salad were great as well. My husband had the island mule and he really liked it! There wasn’t anything that we didn’t like. We’d recommend this place in a heart beat and will be back soon.

    First time in that particular location. The food was well presented and tasty. The service though was terrible. The location is also good next to ample parking. But we are debating returning because of the service. Our waiter Wesley was polite but very abrupt and demanding that we stop telling him our order because he was slow. It took 9 minutes to take our 4 plate order and kept telling us "stop, slow down"...!!! A lady that acted like the dining area manager was also very abrupt. She brought our food without a smile or even say "here you go" or something like that. It is shame because we liked this place and its food.......

    Food has really gone downhill since this restaurant opened. Last night’s poke was like the bottom of the barrel. Hardly any big chunks of fish and WAY too many onions. Service has also fallen off. Seems like high turnover in servers and managers. It’s like the whole place changed!
