My 1st time here. Your Staff is AMAZING!! You should be proud! The weather changed and we came inside. They were helpful and made sure we were comfortable.
OMG! The Grilled Yellow Tail was WONDERFUL! The only thing was not enough non-carb choices (picked cucumbers,
Radishes, something fun) the Broccolini was good 👍🏾!
I’ll remember add them because you do serve them with other dishes (ie. Salmon mububi). Don’t worry I’ll DEFINITELY BE BACK!

We had a great time! Still not ready to dine inside so they’re outdoor seating was perfect. Loved the happy hour items- ribs, guacamole! Super nice server! Japanese wasabi poke bowl is my favorite!

Poor experience from start to finish. We ordered cocktails to start, but they were exceptionally bitter (which was not expected from a passionfruit drink). Then we ordered guaca poke to start. We asked if we should wait to order our main dishes, and the server said "no I will pace them for you." A short time later they brought our main entrees. We gently reminded that we had asked to receive our appetizer first (and had been promised it would happen) so they took the main dishes away and brought the appetizer. Only a couple of minutes later they brought the entrees back, but they were clearly the same ones they brought before, and ice cold. The server said she would take them back and have fresh entrees made. When she returned they were the exact same entrees! By then not only cold but old and gross.

Shame on management. If your server makes a mistake (which happens, they are human!) your policy should be to make a new plate. Trying to save a few dollars by returning the same cold food to me is bad practice.

The food was ver good but it took a long time to get to us. I think currently that Door Dash is the priority and the actual tables are secondary.

The place seemed a bit disorganized. Took awhile before our server came to our table. Our server was okay but the food was served warm, not hot. If I’m going to eat fish and chips, aka fried food, I want it piping hot. I didn’t complain or send it back because I was hungry enough at that point to eat just about anything. The soup we ordered never came out prior to the main course as requested. The waiter offered to bring it with our entrees but we elected to cancel it to simplify things. All in all, not terrible but pretty mediocre. The Margarita was good:)

On a Friday evening, we were looking for a relaxed dining experience that would offer us a seafood option when we fell upon Pacific Catch. Indeed, it was relaxed - it came to us that the decor suggested a take on a McDonald's with alcoholic beverages and fish on the menu. We chose the fish an' chips with sweet potato fries, a dish that suited our mood just fine. My companion had a glass of pinot grigio and I had a nice Asian beer. It all worked out. The wait staff was attentive. Our food was served hot and tasty, and we went home satisfied - the perfect restaurant experience for a casual evening after a week of purposeful activity! We're likely to try it again when in possession of a similar disposition.

We met another couple for dinner. It was our first time. The food exceeded expectations, the cocktails on point and the service good. We were seated on a curbside table and unfortunately it was windy and the heater wasn’t working. Otherwise a wonderful meal.

Very enjoyable meal. Our server was super friendly and very attentive. My rainbow roll was delicious as was the fish and chips. We ate outside cause of Covid but were able to enjoy the gas logs next to us.

We must have selected an off day (Monday). Service was slow and there was only a handful of diners. There were 3 of us and it took the restaurant over 30-45 mins to bring out our food (two of us had salads) Appetizer arrived with meal. Food was o.k. Fish was over cooked and dry. Nothing ordered was spectacular. Then we ordered desert and it took about 25 mins to bring out (one order of mochi). Lunch took over 2.25 hrs. I would expect this to happen in SF, not Walnut Creek. Can't say we'll be back..

Food came out warm, the order was not correct. Instead of correcting the order with a new order, they literally tried to correct the order by removing items and serving it to me a second time. Eventually, I got a new order, and the manager removed the item from the bill. In spite of that experience, I paid in cash and tipped 20%. As I was leaving, a young lady who was not my server accused me of not paying the bill. I remained calmed and indicated I paid in cash to my server. I asked, did she really think I was trying to walk away from my bill? She stated and I quote, " I do not see it on my electronic device and I only know what I know!" She walked away with no apology. After the embarrassment of it all, I walked away thinking I will never return to this restaurant.
