Only complaint was being out of the tuna which is in a few dishes. It was only 6:15 pm. But otherwise great.

The service / management is just never there at this location. Just not professionally run. Seems to have been a little better this time but not where it needs to be. Great value for a family of 5 though.

The food was okay, but the service was lousy. We were there for 2 hours just to have a main entree and dessert.......way too long. I had a crabcake salad, my husband had 3 tacos, my grandaughter had calamari, my son and daughter-in-law each had salmon. Fist my salad came, then about 5 minutes the tacos arrived, then another 5 minutes the calamari arrives, and then 1 salmon dinner and 2 or 3 minutes later the other salmon dinner. I worked food service for many years and you never serve a table until all of the food is ready to go and then it is all brought out at once. The same thing happened with the dessert. It took forever for the check arrive and then we had to send it back because we were charged for a glass of wine that we never received. It took another 10 minutes before we finally got a corrected check . We took the check up to the counter so that we wouldn't have to wait any longer. It is hard when you have to park a block away and keep your mind on the clock or get a $45.00 dollar ticket! Very disappointed in the service.

Went to have dinner with the family. Very friendly staff and quick to greet us. We were seated fast and our waitress was quick to attend to us. We watched the staff on the service line and they were very efficient. Food came out and was very delicious. We look forward to coming back to try the other menu options.

This restaurant gets a single star because of a serious and dangerous error in our order, and mostly because of the way the General Manager responded. Restaurant is fine otherwise. Our server, Justin, was excellent and the rest of the staff was friendly.

Four for dinner, one of whom has a serious allergy to citrus. In placing an order for her meal this was explained, and the order was "Plain fish - no seasoning and certainly no cirtus". Server acknowledged and repeated that he understood. When the dish arrived, there was a lemon on the plate, touching the fish, lemon in the sauced drizzled on the fried rice and lemon sauce covering the fish. Note: it's not unusual for restaurants to have difficulty with this request - most often it is the expediter who grabs a plate and squeezes lemon without checking the ticket. We know it's a challenge and are apologetic about the special order and gentle about calling attention to the problem.

When we pointed this out, the server said, "I'll get a manager" - which made me laugh out loud as I thought every organization had learned to give the front-line employee the authority to fix such a simple problem. What was this, 1950? The manager (I think she said General Manager, but she also didn't give her name) arrived and when we shared what had happened, she immediately began to argue, saying "they don't put lemon on it". Pointing to the actual 1/2 grilled lemon and the sauces, she continued to claim it couldn't happen, "well, the grill a lemon, but don't squeeze lemon". Taken aback - I've never had anyone in a restaurant argue like that - we offered to have her taste it and pointed to the sauces. At this point, she agreed to have another dish prepared. When that arrived, it was as ordered.

The negative review is because of the manager's response to a very simple problem. Another manager came by later to check on us, and they did offer a free dessert as compensation for the error. We also got sympathetic nods and

Crab Louie is just a chopped salad with shreds of crab in it. Big disappointment. I would not order it and expect a Crab Louie!

The food is fabulous, so many wonderful options to choose from. I enjoy the bowls and every time I go I choose a different bowl and change the protein. All are delicious. I can even bring my vegetarian friends since grilled tofu is a protein option. All 3 pokes and the seared ahi are outstanding.

We were seated right on time but the waitress was too busy to say anything. Not even hello. Fortunately the hostess recognized this and took it upon herself to help. Shortly after that the GM came to check on us also....
The food we oredered was served wonderfully and tasted excellent. Special Thanks to our hostess who took charge. We will go back!

it may have been a off night, but probably won't go back. Service poor. Waited forever for wait person, water, and drinks. Then when served, orders were not exactly as ordered. Only think received quickly was the check.

Food was tasty combination of Pacific Ocean coastal food. Tasty and nicely prepared. 6 to 8 tables for 2 were in curtained off outdoor area and was very uncomfortably cold with fans on high.

Hi. Granted it was Valentine’s Day. Our reservation was for 4:45. We had to wait a couple minutes before being seated Many open tables but I’m sure there were many reservations for later. My wife and I sat a our table close to the bar area and not to extradite we sat there for over 20 mins and not waitress buser or hostess came by. No water no nothing not even a “ we will be with you in a minute “. We left and wished the hostess good luck. Ended going to Zio Alfredo’s and treated great. And yes they were very busy.

I absolutely love Pacific Catch and go there whenever possible. So many wonderful choices on the menu it's hard to choose. I usually get one of the bowls with grains and greens, never disappointed, always delicious. The fish tacos are great too and so are the sushi rolls. If you like seafood, this is the place.

My boyfriend and I went to Walnut Creek Pacific Catch for the first time Saturday. It was so good and we can't wait to return! There were so many items on the menu we wanted to try - it was so difficult to choose. In the end, my boyfriend had the ahi tuna burger that was AMAZING! He had sides of sweet potato fries and a coleslaw. They were excellent. I had the Opah fish prepared with basic sea salt and sides of charred broccolini and crab mashed potatoes. Delicious! The bartender, Candace, was so nice and welcoming. We are so glad we found Pacific Catch and we'll be returning often.

We sat in the bar area and took advantage of Pacific Catch happy hour. We ordered 2 appetizers, a poke bowl, a salad, and one cocktail. The service was surprisingly slow for that time of the day. My cocktail barely made it to the table before our food. The coconut shrimp was very good and I would order that again. The Calamari was not so good. The rings had a soggy coating and the rest of calamari seemed to have an "old oil" taste. The salad and poke bowl were both good.

The menu has many options for fish. We had opah and the Poke chirashi. Both dishes were flavorful, spicy but not overpowering. The restaurant while busy, felt relaxing and quiet enough for conversation. While some past reviews were rightfully saying that the service can be slow, it was what we wanted. We did not want to be rushed and therefore it was perfect for us.

Oh, where to even begin - my husband and I went there on Saturday night, and everything (except the food) was way, way off. Even though we had reservations, we had to wait almost 30 minutes to be seated. (We were told that we had checked in late, which was true, but that was only because the waiting area was so crowded we had to wait politely behind a long line to even check in.) After we finally were seated, we ordered right away because we were starving. My husband and I ordered the same dish, which is very unusual and the reason why I remembered what he ordered. When the dishes finally arrived, his dish was something totally different from what he ordered. When we were seated, I also ordered a mocktail (Dry January for me) but the drink didn't arrive for at least 15 minutes and only after all of our food had arrived, and we had already started eating. I tried to flag someone down to cancel the drink when it finally arrived. The manager did offer to comp us one of our entrees for the ordering snafu and the long wait. I asked the manager if I could have a to-go cup because I couldn't finish the drink. I could have worn that he said that he was going to comp us for the one drink, which I thought was nice. No one stopped to check on us until the very end of the meal, when the waitress stopped by to offer dessert -- again, I could have sworn that she said that it was on the house because otherwise we would not have ordered it -- we were anxious to leave by this point. We ordered one dessert to share. When we got the bill, sure enough, the late drink and the "free" dessert were on the bill. We didn't say anything because we were worn out from such an incredibly bad service experience and honestly just wanted to go home and forget our bad experience. Sadly, they have lost two faithful customers, but they don't seem to care. It is one of the few times that we left a poor tip because we couldn't seem to get across how poor the service was that night.

WE had to wait about an hour for our guests because of the parking situation. They didn't know where to park and were puzzled about the underground parking that said "retail parking." Sarah was our waitress and was so lovely, patient with the situation. We really enjoyed our experience. I was awed at the faucet in the women's bathroom...wow, didn't know air was going to come out of it.
