Any restaurant with football on is not my idea of a great experience when traveling. My least favorite place on our vacation in Palm Springs.

Not impressed with the food. Everything is good, but nothing is excellent. Great service and nice place, but definitely not the place that we will be coming back for more.

We were disappointed with the selection of fish. Food was good, service was faster than expected. Our appetizer plates hadn’t been picked up when our meal arrived. A little pricey for what you get, but nice experience overall.

Always an enjoyable meal here. Even though the outdoor seating is overlooking El Paseo, it's a very tranquil, relaxing setting. They always make customers feel special.

Very comfortable restaurant with a friendly menu. Although billed as a seafood restaurant, there were 3 beef dishes for meat eaters.

Nice restaurant. Food underwhelming for the prices charged. The calamari app was ok. Breading falling off, pieces not as tender as others I have tasted and the portion size was not enough to share. My wife’s ahi tuna main course was sliced too thick, under seasoned and not tender as it should be. My fish stew was just okay, needed some bam and brightening up. The Moscow mule however was delicious and was the highlight of the meal. Sorry Pacifica, will try you again hopefully with better results!

I had the ahi tuna & my husband had the short ribs. Both entrees were the best we'd ever had. The service was incredible. Absolutely perfection. It's a joy to watch them working together.

Excellent spot for seafood in the Coachella Valley. My wife had a bountiful seafood stew and I enjoyed perfectly prepared sea bass. This is a special occasion spot for us. It's pricey but worth it.

My wife and I decided to celebrate our 46th wedding anniversary at Pacifica Seafood Restaurant - it was a great decision. Our server, Yobany, was wonderful. He was very attentive, but not intrusive. The seafood was great and we didn't feel rushed.

We used to go for the “white fish”, that’s no longer on the menu so we switched to “cat fish”, no longer on the menu, sea bass is still excellent

I had a green salad and their dinner special- sand dabs. My husband had the tuna tartare and shrimp Louie salad. The sand dabs was fried and was bland. My husband meal was fine. The server was not attentive. For the price they charge, I expected more, better service and food.
