This is our go-to five star restaurant in San Diego. The food is consistently good, the staff are warm, helpful and friendly, and the view overlooking the ocean is lovely. I always leave looking forward to my next meal at Pacifica.
Pacifica remains our number one favorite eating spot in all of San Diego! Our meal was out of this world as was the service from everyone on the floor. AMAZING is a good description!
Excellent Shrimp and Grits
Always great service! I never get disappointed every time I visit Pacifica Del Mar . I have brought friends and they are always impressed w the food and service :)
We frequent this restaurant. It’s service is the best in SD and food always top quality and great taste
Incredible food and view! We found Pacifica Del Mar using a Google search for a lunch spot while on vacation in the area. We choose the location based on its proximity to the ocean, but were really wowed by the view when we walked in. What's more, the service - from reception to servers - was outstanding. It was quiet when we went so had a lot of time to visit with staff - we felt like they were new friends by the time we left. Food choices were plenty - salads, sandwiches, entrees, etc. Try the Mocha Semifreddo for dessert (we shared it, and it was plenty). Validated parking made it free to garage park and not worry about finding a spot in what can be a busy area. We will definitely come back when we're in the Del Mar/Torrey Pines area next time!
The views at sunset are very spectacular; if you get seated on the roof area at sunset, you will enjoy a west coast sunset that is second to none, give the elevated height. Highly recommend.
Great food and a great view!
Took college kids out for a nice meal. Got the early bird special so not only was it easy on our wallets, it was a good learning opportunity for them that there are ways not to pay full price. Food and view well worth the price even when it isn’t early bird.
Good food, nice view
Pacifica Del Mar is great and has been very reliable for 20 years or more. The food and service continues to excel and the value per dollar is very good.
Really great menu and wine list. Excellent service
Great find while visiting Del Mar. Look forward to returning for a sunset.
We had a lovely birthday dinner ...Food was great...service awesome
Pacifica Del Mar is a regular stop on our date night tour. And its because the food and service are outstanding AND the view is an added bonus.
The view of the sunset over the Pacific is gorgeous. The bread is steaming and delicious. The signature Sugar-Spiced Salmon was perfectly prepared. My husband and I both ordered the salmon. There was a dramatic difference between our pieces of salmon in portion (both were small.) Sitting inside was warmer and less noisy but getting water or utensils that were not provided was tough. Whatever you do share the Mocha Semifredo dessert. You won't regret it.
Visiting San DiegI, we always try to include a meal at Pacifica and we did this on Saturday for brunch with three other people. Fish tacos and calamari are two standbys that once again proved the drive to Del Mar was well worth the effort!
I had several friends in from out of town and I couldn't wait to meet them at Pacifica, it's one of my favorites. The service is impeccable, a wonderful mix of attentive but not stuffy. Our glasses were always full, the recommendations were excellent and everything was served in just the right amount of time! I love everything about Pacifica except for the fact that it gets so loud. Maybe it's because the tables are so close together but I just wanted to turn to the lady at the table next to ours and her to please use her "inside voice".
My friends were impressed and there wasn't anything about our food that we didn't love.
Made our reservation and asked for a window table. We got there on time and were seated immediately at one of the 4 tops closest to the windows. We had a great view of the sunset.
All four of us had the Sunet menu. Three had the salmon, which was excellent and the fourth had the Mahi mahi. She thought it the best she had ever had.
The service was timely and attentive, without being intrusive.
The Sunset 2 course meal for $25.75 is a good bargain. The wine list is good and reasonably priced.
We had a great meal as usual and will be back soon.
This was a birthday lunch celebration. Our waiter, Kyle, made this dining event such a pleasure with his friendly demeanor. Food was delicious, and the ambience made for easy conversation.
Food and service very good. Noise level was extreme. Could not hear my wife across the table. Guys talking and laughing level very loud. At least 20 feet from us. No one from restaurant asked them to quiet down.
Wonderful meal, a bit pricey but good food. Our meal was spoiled however by a loud, boisterous table next to us of 6 men whose noise level prevented us from having a normal conversation. There was no attempt by the wait staff to tone down the loud noise.
Server was only fair. Asked for a refill of bread. Never got it. Never asked how my dish was. I like foods spicy but mine was almost too 'hot' to eat. Brought our friend's birthday dessert but never asked us ahead of time if we wanted other desserts or coffee.
Although we made a reservation, our seat was not very good. Service was rushed and careless.

The food and service was great! Waiter was great! Everything was great!
Has been a great experience for many years, even though it has changed owners. The manager and service staff are both friendly and professional.
My fave restaurant for monthly special occasions.
We come here whenever we are in delmar.
I love the beet martinis and the food is consistently good.
Great happy hour specials and early bird menu. Although the regular menu is quite outstanding.
Great food. Great service. The view was spectacular
Waited 20mins to be seated.
Excellent as always. It was hopping on Saturday night but the service and food was excellent. Definitely on the repeat list.
I was glad we made reservations as the place was quite busy on a Friday night. The service/server was un-attentive and a bit overwhelmed. Drink glasses were empty and we had to flag her down for a refill. Ordered a starter salad and it never arrived. The presentation of the food was thoughtfully prepared and tasted good. You could tell that they were lacking in waitstaff and/or chefs. It was busy and very noisy. We wanted to pay our bill with a gift card and the remainder in cash. That was a FIASCO!! Once again, un-attentive...
It was awesome! Julius took care of us and he was the manager that night. It was a night to remember. The food was amazing and I loved the tuna and salmon. I will definitely come back!
went on Valentine's Day--great food and very reasonable prices given that most restaurants jack up the prices on days like this
It was very easy setting up an appointment through Open Table. There was ample parking underneath that will be validated on your way out. After being seated, we watched the sun set over the ocean through the clouds. The three of us, (my mom, wife and I) truly enjoyed the ambiance for Valentine's Day. The food and wait staff were outstanding. And, there was a great selection on the menu. Of course, they had a wide variety of wine and other delectable beverages to choose from. I've been here many times and have enjoyed my experience each of those times. Highly recommended.
I WAS EXPECTING A ROMANTIC DINNER OUT BUT THE BAR WAS SOOOOO VERY NOISY THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE RESTAURANT & IT TOOK FOREVER TO GET THROUGH CROWDED & RUDE PEOPLE IN THE BAR TO GET TO THE RESTROOM FROM THE DINING ROOM. OTHER THAN THAT IT WAS PERFECT
Wonderful evening as usual. Enjoyed great creatively prepared seafood, attentive service and beautiful venue.
We enjoyed our 2hour+, no rush and great Sea food meal. Thank you!
Outstanding service and was pleasantly surprised by drink and food specials.
We had a great time. Only complaint is it’s really noisy sometimes.
