Pacific Catch Mountain View Ratings and Reviews
Excellent fresh dishes prepared with a variety of influences, Asian, southern, nouvelle. Staff were attentive and friendly without being intrusive. Our party of 3 had 1 beer, 2 soft drinks, 3 appetizers, 2 entrees, and 2 desserts for $90 (before tip) on a moderately busy happy-hour on Wednesday night. Plenty of parking in the parking structure across the street.
As usual, your experience here will vary greatly, depending upon whom you have as your waiter. Some are excellent, a few just try to upsell from the moment they say hi to you. In general, the restaurant is underserved and the waiters are always rushing around and often out of breath when they talk to you. This should be fixed by management.
You can get a tasty and usually healthy meal here for a reasonable price.
There is a good selection of beers, but the specialty cocktails are very weak and mostly consist of various syrups.
Great service and menu. Food was delicious. We ordered shrimp ceviche, teriyaki rice bowl with steak, and salmon. The waitress who served us and the waiter who was in charge of water were both very pleasant and quick. We will definitely visit again and recommend it to others.
This was my first visit here. We went for lunch and will definitely go back. A good place for casual dining with fresh food. The poke was fresh and tasty. And I loved the coconut shrimp too. Our waitress was very friendly and efficient. I would like to go back for dinner next time.
Ambiance is casual but elegant and airy.
I keep thinking maybe the next time I go to Pacific Catch it will be better and every time they disappoint me. The food was average at best. The service for the first 45 mins was horrible, every staff member disappeared. Because I got their early I went to the bar and discovered it was Happy Hour. The bartenders never made contact and were facing in a different direction the whole time. I had to call out to them to get their attention so I can get a drink. It was like they didn't want me to get the Happy Hour special pricing so if they avoid you, you'd have to pay full price if they stalled for 5 mins when it times out.
The menu is limited and the food was just so-so. The service was slow and they brought out the wrong dish for me & I had to wait while they quickly fetched mine. They did give me a glass of wine on the house for the inconvenience and that was nice. Our waitress was very nice too. It wasn't a total loss, but since my son was visiting from out of town, it was very disappointing.
Wouldn't recommend. Salad with taco's was not complete or dressed. Side order or broccoli did not arrive. Never offered a chance to order drinks. Was talked out of my entree by the waiter with another suggestion which was so spicy it was inedible. Waiter didn't offer to clear the plates from the starter before trying to dump the the entrees on the table - until we told him to. All in all, crappy service. It wasn't even that busy. Pretty subdued atmosphere for a Saturday night. In retrospect it was far too easy to get a table for 6 at short notice on a Saturday, and now I know why.
We have been to Pacific Catch many times before and enjoyed it very much. But, tonight's food and service were mediocre at best. Our waiter was forgetful and seemed preoccupied. We did not receive the edamame and cracker appetizer and our drinks were very slow to arrive. When we asked for lemons from our water for a second time, the waiter presented them on toothpicks still in plastic wrappers and laid them on the table! Both my dining partner and I had a fresh fish special. My salmon was overcooked and paired with an undercooked vegetable ragout. The grilled corn came without the butter and cheese as described. Overall, a very disappointing dinner.
Once again, the experience here varies greatly time to time. First off, a couple of the servers here are just horrible. Surely management knows who they are. But then again, one of the managers is horrible, also. On the other hand, some of the servers do a fine job, although they all try their hardest to upsell the drinks (which are generally poorly made, mostly syrup in the specialty cocktails). The food, by and large, is good. The bowls are the best values, but sometimes the specials are good, too. Overall, it's a fun place to go, but if you have an important dinner/lunch date (business or social), I won't go here because you could end up with a poor experience.
The taste and quality of the food was great. It wasn't very busy and we got to the restaurant at 11:40, we ordered at 11:45 and it took until about 12:15 for food to come. We asked for our appetizer to come before lunch and it came with lunch. One of the orders was wrong but we didn't want to wait another 30 minutes for the correct food to come. So... food was great but attention to detail sucked. It was also extremely noisy so conversation was difficult.
My husband and I have been here 3 times in the last 8 months and my impressions are the same - the menu promises a lot but the execution is only fair. My fish is generally overcooked a bit. The sauces are just okay, nothing remarkable. The waiters try to upsell. I like the ambience better than the Fish Market, but the food quality, preparation and taste of the dishes is far superior at Fish Market. This visit I had Ginger and Garlic Salmon - the risotto was mushy, and took up most of the dish, the eggplant was also mushy and not too tasty and the salmon was overcooked. This place is convenient, and the dining area is fun and vibrant, but the chef needs to do better with the fish dishes.
We really enjoyed this tasty, fresh seafood restaurant. We'll definitely return! It was "wild salmon run" season during our visit. The poke trio was delightful, and both the grilled salmon with masa and the BBQ salmon were succulent and flavorful -- perfect, really. The salmon chowder was also yummy according to my husband. The menu has quite a few playful dishes with interesting combinations of flavors. I think the chefs actually have fun planning the dishes, but those we had worked very well.
I sense that the wait staff may be a little overworked, but they are cheerful and kind. I liked our server. She was no-nonsense, friendly and efficient.
The food was not cooked properly my husband ordered the fish and chips and the French fries were not evencoojed through!! My daughter ordered one of the seasonal specials the eggplant was over cooked and very mushy. Inedible!!! I would not recommend this restaurant nor would I go there again!!! Very disappointed!!
