Grand Opening March 29th.

Pacific Catch is a WestCoast Fish House dedicated to delivering high quality sustainable seafood with a unique perspective. From the day we opened we've been mindful about where our ingredients come from and how to bring to life the vibrant flavors and feeling of the Pacific.

It's our commitment to our guests to keep things interesting, innovative, wholesome and thoughtfully sourced. That's why we've formalized our relationship with the Monterey Bay Seafood Aquarium's Seafood Watch, James Beard Foundation's Smart Catch and the Surfrider Foundation by becoming a partner and bringing on a director of sustainability to help steward these efforts.

We will be following the most stringent protocols on cleaning, sanitization, social distancing, and protections for employee health including temperature taking and the use of protective masks and gloves.

Our first dining experience post-COVID, so we were a bit apprehensive. The waiter (Ian) made us feel comfortable and was very attentive. The food was delicious, fresh, fast and hot. Will definitely be back!

This place is so beautiful. However, our server Taison was terrible, didn’t check on us at all, just to drop the check and was rude about it. He ruined our night
Management team should be on top of customer service.

The new Pacific Catch in Santa Clara has a nice outdoor patio and a covered area. It was a little windy, but the set up was nice and there was plenty of room to keep everyone easily spaced out. Our server was knowledgeable about the menu and recommended her favorite items.

Cannot do better than the Poke trio platter. And the side of Brussel sprouts and excellent MAUI IPA made this a wonderful vaccination celebration.

Service was great, friendly - food was very good. If you book a reservation via Open Table, just be sure staff marks you as present when you check in. I went to my 2 pm rez and Open Table emailed me that I was a no show. The restaurant manager rectified it quickly and given that they are still really new, I think that is an easy mistake to make. We will probably be regulars- oh, I was hoping to have some steamed clams but didn’t see it on their lunch menu so maybe it’s a dinner item. I’ll find out next time we go.👍🏽

Broccoli was grilled and blackened, tasting charred. Battered fish tasted like a pre-frozen piece. Waited a long time for restaurant to open. Not sure we'll return. Definitely not the quality of the Fish Market!

Our waitress did not seem very 'well' trained. It wasn't all that busy and she could have come around more 'often' to check on our Iced Tea, water situation. She DID ask how our appetizer and food were (when those arrived), but it was slow due to the 'soft opening' and we felt we should have been better attended too.

However, we did receive a 'to go' box and our points were put into our PC account quickly and politely. And she 'assumed' we'd want dessert after a large appetizer and lunch (which we didn't). But, she did try and upsell....

Wished you had a 'bigger' outside patio area (can you add chairs and tables in front of the front door)? Loved the new location and decor.

This was opening day, and the food was as good as the other PCs, and the service as well. We had a new waitress who really wanted to learn the ropes, and did really well for her first day at PC.

Went for the soft opening. Staff were incredibly solicitous from front desk to waitress to bus boys. We asked for and got a corner table on the outdoor patio so as to be isolated from others...nearest table was 12 feet away and the restaurant had carefully created lots of space between the tables.

Portions were large and we loved the turmeric coconut sauce in the grilled yellowtail with totally amazing caramelized Thai Brussels sprouts side dish. The firecracker roll appetizer was excellent with a touch of complexity added on the fried shallots used to garnish the salmon nori roll with sprouts. Even the fried dulce de leche roll filled with mascarpone cheese and drizzled with caramel was excellent.

Very pleased all around!

My wife and I attended the practice dinner. We had the three sushi tacos for the starter. There was a generous piece of ahi, salmon and yellowtail. I highly recommend this as a starter. My wife had the west coast style grilled salmon bowl. A large bowl with many veggies with a quinoa base. I will try this dish on our next visit. Since I have tried fish and chips in multiple restaurants on both coasts, I tried the fish and chips. A 4.5. This would be in the top 10% of of the fish and chips I have had in the past. The seasoned fries were excellent. The only reason I rated Pacific Catch a 4 was because of this being the practice dinner. We will go back again after the opening to see if a 5 is warranted. I highly recommend Pacific Catch.
