Perched atop the Del Mar Plaza in the heart of the Village, Pacifica Del Mar has remained a local gem for years as one of the neighborhood’s most sought-after places to dine, wine and gather with friends and family. Their menu showcases casual and inspired fare - like fresh seafood, steak and pasta - complimented by an award-winning wine list and creative cocktails.

Whether you choose to dine on their cozy ocean view patio, or join them in our vibrant dining room or bar, their warm service and great food and drink will provide a memorable dining experience.

We look forward to seeing you at Pacifica Del Mar. Please note that in an effort to give our staff enough time to turn over and sanitize tables between diners, reservations will be limited to an hour and a half for parties of 4 or less, and 2 hours for parties 5+. We thank you for understanding and helping us keep things safe for you.

    We had a really nice dinner at this restaurant celebrating our 18th wedding anniversary! The service was excellent, the food was outstanding, a little on the pricey side, but worth it, especially for a special occasion. I will be back!

    First time in over 25 years that the food was super subpar at Pacifica. Seabass & Ahi Tuna was very bland. Their dessert version of creme brûlée was runny and tasteless. Our service was impeccable & friendly and of course the views are to die for. But the quality of food left us wishing we would have gone back to AR Valentinean at Torrey Pines.

    We enjoyed our Halibut and the catch for the day. They were good and the service was great. The only complaint we have was the parking. It took us about 15 minutes to find a parking after getting the parking ticket. Getting out was busy which took us about 10 minutes to get out from the parking lot. That delay was added to the cost of parking. Free parking should be at least an hour and a half or should be free with validation when eating in the restaurant.

    Enjoying sitting on the patio. I appreciated that the host asked us how much sun we wanted so we could sit a bit in the shade. Cioppino delish, braised short rib huge portion and fell apart as you grab a bite. Poke nachos good as well

    Not the best service or food but very good. We felt a little ignored - never offered bread, no one ever checked on us to see if we enjoyed the meal. Definitely worth trying again.
