Jacqueline was very efficient. Food was on time, with good quality and quantity.
we were very pleased as always. Carlos and Esther
On vacation, enjoy outdoor dinning. Great sunset view, waitress very helpful on recommendations and service. Very very good food
One of the best restaurants in Del Mar! Highly recommend the sea bass
Excellent food, great service and world-class ocean view.
Everything was great!
The food was delish! I especially enjoyed the sugar spiced salmon!
Waiter rarely checked in on us and thus the meal extended to 3 hours before we could pay the bill. We definitely would have ordered more food and drink if we would have been checked in on.
The host staff, food and ambience are all excellent, but the wait staff makes a huge difference in the overall experience.
We have been dining at this restaurant for over24 years. Unfortunately the current menu does not meet our expectations and is not up to par with their old menu.
The food is not what we were used to enjoy at Pacifica in the past. Even the desert (mocasemifreso) was not the same quality
Lovely restaurant. Staff was good. Food was outstanding and drinks. Great view of ocean.
Thank you for joining us and for your review, Jorge! We are so glad you enjoyed and we hope to see you again soon!
Wonderful evening at The Pacifica restaurant. The service & food was fantastic. We had a great table to totally enjoy the beautiful sunset. Highly recommend !!!!
Thank you for your review and for joining us! We are so glad you were able to enjoy one of the many beautiful sunsets we get to see here at Pacifica. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Beautiful location but the food was awful and the service wasn’t great. No flavor to the food. Caesar salad dressing tasted like cream - literally zero flavor. Was kinda bummed actually. Server could have just been learning since I know it’s been hard for restaurants to find staffing. He tried.
We had to track down our server each time we needed something.
Thank you for your review, we appreciate your feedback. We hope to see you again soon.
Food was not bad, but not up to the standards demanded by the prices, regardless of the great sunset view.
Poor quality vegetables, some overcooked, meat under seasoned, heavy dose of glaze on the fish. Overall just average quality.
Server was polite, but at times we thought we had been forgotten! Over 15 minutes to find out if the bar could make a common nonalcoholic drink, and when they did, it was blended so poorly the ice chunks blocked the straw, not to mention they must have quickly looked up a bad recipe online.
The sunset view was great, that and the creme brûlée were the highlights of the evening, but it is unlikely we will go back.
Thank you for your feedback. We seemed to have missed the mark. We strive to provide excellent food and service for each of our guests, and we hope you give us another chance.
After almost being turned away- though we had a late afternoon reservation- we had a wonderful lunch! Great service, food and ocean view!
Thank you for your review, we really appreciate it! We are so glad you enjoyed your experience with us and we hope to see you again soon.
Thank you so much for your review, we really appreciate it and hope to see you again soon!
Food was delicious!!! Our server Lindsey was excellent, knowledgeable and efficient.
Bus boys were great. Everyone checked on us but not too often.
Hello and thank you for joining us! We are so glad you enjoyed your experience with us and we will pass along your kind words to Lindsey! We hope to see you again soon.
Vegetarian meal was not very creative tasted like pepper Looked like mush

Had a party of 9 for a birthday dinner.
Service was great and they helped in getting us all seated together.
Thank you for joining us for your special occasion and for leaving us a review! We really appreciate it. We are so glad you enjoyed your experience and we hope to see you again soon.
Usually love this place. Today, not as much. Ahi in poke bowl was sinewy and chewy, not tender. I hoped it would be same quality as their amazing seared ahi but it wasn’t.
Thank you for your feedback. We seemed to have missed the mark. Our staff is always happy to fix any situation that leaves you less than satisfied in an effort to remedy the experience.
Our waitress was kaylin? She was great. Food was outstanding. Best in our vacation to CA Santa Barbara to Torey pines trip.
Thank you so much for your review and for joining us, we really appreciate it. We are so glad you enjoyed dining with us and we will be sure to pass along your kind words to Kalyn! We hope to see you next time you are visiting!
Wonderful balcony dinning
We had a great time. Food was terrific. Service impeccable. We will definitely be back.
Thank you so much for joining us, Brian! We really appreciate you leaving a review and we are so glad you enjoyed your experience with us. We hope to see you again soon.
We really enjoyed our dinner at Pacifica Del Mar. We had a wonderful table on the terrace overlooking the ocean at sunset. The service was wonderful and well paced. We enjoyed all the food and will be back to try other dishes. The only problem is that if you haven't been there before, it is hard to find. It is on the third level of the complex, but it is not listed on the directory nor in the address of the restaurant, so it's hard to know where to go once you get out of the garage (but having garage parking is a plus).
The fried calamari was very greasy
Fish taco’s were pretty good but I don’t know about the little
Bowl of tomatoes on the side I think they good of done better
Always a great place in Del Mar. I have been there many times over the past 10 years and have never been disappointed.
I am returning customer and just love this restaurant! The food are tasty and so does the service. They are one of good restaurant has the consistency in quality. Thank you again!
Always great food and great service. Perfect for special occasion or anytime you want a great meal.
Good food and service at reasonable prices.
The place is dated and needs some TLC.
The men’s restroom needed attention.
Most staff did not wear masks.
Their online menu and actual menu are not the same.
Generally, a nice try, but overall I expected better.
We will be back! Great service food and ambience!!
There was nothing special about the food. It was mediocre and edible, but nothing to get excited about. For the prices charged, it was not worth it. Maybe it was an off night, but there are better options in Cardiff and Encinitas, etc.
The most beautiful view & sunset. Food was exceptional & our server Lindsay was a delight.
Great food (salmon and seared ahi amazingly goo as usual)
From walking in and talking to the hostess to leaving it was an amazing experience where my guests and I were made to feel very comfortable-Thank you John Rubino
The seafood was fantastic. Octopus salad, Sugar spiced salmon and the Chilean Seabass were all very good. Great view too.
Food was outstanding! Service was a bit slow, which is expected during these Covid times.
Perfect finish to a beautiful weekend in San Diego. Hadn’t been to Pacifica DelMar in 20 years - was great to dine there !
Our server Joshua was the best ! Outstanding server and made the evening even more special. Can’t wait to be back soon
This is our go-to restaurant whenever we are in town -- the food is excellent, service is even better, and the view is the best. We tried the poke appetizer for the first time and it was only ok, but everything else was fantastic.
for a birthday celebration we were seated at 5:45 at the north west corner of the patio and had a perfect view of the sunset. Wonderful wine list and service.
Thank you for joining us for your special occasion and for leaving us a review, we really appreciate it! Isn't the sunset just so wonderful from our patio?! We are so glad you were able to experience it! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed dining with us and we hope to see you again soon.
Great for my son’s birthday.
