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.

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!

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 have eaten in the restaurant many times and have never been disappointed until I brought some friends here for brunch on Sunday. This time things were very different! Our reservation was for Sunday brunch right at 11:00 when the restaurant opened so the server and chef should have been fresh and ready to go but not true! Our service was just terrible! One example was that one of the people in our party ordered the bagel and lox and had to wait at least 10 minutes to get the cream cheese that came in a tub that looked it was from a fast food restaurant! We wanted refills on drinks that took forever to come. I should also say that we waited a very long time for our food. The waitress told us it was coming right out when we were finally able to get her attention and the food took another 15 minutes to come out! The bagel that came with the lox looked like a lenders frozen bagel! The french toast was very mediocre to say the least. I had the vege omelet. The had 2 big globs of goat cheese and a little bit of spinach and mushrooms plus it was luke warm.

I have to say that after all the wonderful meals I have had at this restaurant, this meal has left a very bad taste in my mouth and will think twice about returning.

My husband and I had a number of events to celebrate, so we chose Pacifica Del Mar. We had dined there before and enjoyed everything about it, but this time all was beyond expectations. We had a salmon salad and an ahi tuna salad--both were superb, full of interesting textures and flavors. Rachel warmly greeted us and Joshua was our server. We felt like royalty.

Everything was really good. Tacos could have used more sauce. Unlimited $15 mimosas with your juice of choice great. Not a great domestic draft list...no Bud Light. Waiter was not familiar with beer or cocktail menu.
