Even in the heat of the summer, Pacifica is packed. That pretty much says it all. The bar is great, but we also enjoy sitting in the dining room and enjoying a quieter setting. Love the new decor!!!Food always a “10” and our server, Matt, was most attentive. We’ll be back very soon!
Matthew is an awesome server.....
Dave the GM is such a great host and has a great management team — the entire staff is professional but very friendly...
Our favorite restaurant in the desert...
We enjoyed the service and the food fairly well (excellent but pricey seabass, though one could go with the half size which was then more reasonable) but the ambience was not great, no patio available but it was 100 temp so probably not good anyway. The patio was under remodeling. No great views being on second floor of a fancy mall. The way the restaurant is situated it is not easy to look out, the tables way too close to each other, not a sense of upscale in this place.
Excellent food, we enjoyed our short ribs and can’t beat the 50% off on wine bottles.
They offer 1/2 portions for those who want to eat
Perfect birthday dinner with friends!
The food was good, the main waiter very friendly but the other wait staff that assisted at the table forgot when we requested bread. The place was noisy as it was packed and the terrace was closed due to remodeling. It is a good restaurant and I will return in the near future.
We liked the half portions and the extensive list of wines by the glass. Attentive service and management presence produced a quality experience
A friend and I went for dinner and our reservations were early enough for the early bird dinner. The food, wait staff etc were excellent
Our favorite place to eat. The food is always the best! And we had a really great waitress!
Sunset dinner specials are a great deal. The waiter and bus boy were the best we've ever had at this or any other restaurant. They were always around but never in the way.
The Dungeness Crab Louie was superb. If you don't go, you'll miss a really great experience.
Went for the balcony but under contstruction. We requested but not told of construction.
Great food and service. The sea bass was delicious!
Beautiful restaurant. Nice atmosphere. The salad was overdressed, not fresh. I did not taste the maple vinaigrette that I was excited about...I ordered the mustard catfish with mixed veggies underneath, not seasoned enough nothing to write home about. I tasted my husbands grilled salmon. The fish did not taste fresh at all. Ordered the apple pie dessert.. it was better the the entrees. The host did bring us a free shrimp appetizer that was pretty good. Overall...was not worth the $100 we spend ):
Great for seafood, service and cocktails are always great. Outdoor seating right on ElPaseo if you desire, we come often, it's a favorite.
Our most favorite restaurant in the valley. The food and service is superb and they are making some renovations currently but you'd never know it. It will be better than before but it was marvelous.
Great place but very poor waiter. Food was wonderful and overall setting was giid
Service is everything, our server made our visit extremely enjoyable!
Food was served hot, fish was over cooked.
Presentation was nice.
Service was good.
food was wonderful but service was too fast ! I wasn't finished with my salad and they brought the entree. Dinning not eating is the difference.
Server was excellent, food was great. The lights were very bright in the restaurant we were there enjoying conversation for 2 1/2 hours and still a few other tables, they started turning lights off. I felt very put off by that. $200 meal for 2 and turning lights off, very odd.
UPDATE. upon my review management reached out to me personally. Very impressive! They explained remodeling is taking place staff having learning curve with switches etc. Great to know a review does not go unnoticed by the establishment. We will be back for sure!!
Pacifica Palm Desert never disappoints. Drinks are a generous pour, food outstanding and fresh and excellent service. Amazed how busy they are even in the absolute heat of the summer! We love it there!
We tried this for the first time and loved it! We had Martinis with blue cheese olives and a seafood tower to start. The stuffed clams were amazing! We also had the ribeye steak and ahi tuna! I highly recommend this place. I look forward to going back!
Another outstanding meal. I had oysters, clam chowder, and Dungeness Crab Louis on early bird special.
My wife again had the salmon which she always. And you can eat at the bar if you get there early.
Freshest seafood in the desert, and definitely the tastiest seafood platter around. Better than Mastro's crab legs and claws. Excellent service from friendly staff. Enjoyed the meal and had a great time, topped off by an incredible macadamia ice cream cake.
We had spent a hot day playing golf and were looking for a good dinner to end our week in Palm Desert. Booking was easy via Open Table and the staff were helpful and friendly. Our group voted the dinner as our best in 3 weeks in the US. Food was generally superb, especially the crab cake. Only disappointment was the Special fish which was a bit dry and boring. Wine list adequate and cocktails good.
Oysters on the half shell were very good.
Went for our 32nd anniversary and were thrilled with all aspects of the evening. Scallop appetizer was exceptional, and a great start to the meal. Hubby had the pork chop and I had the salmon. Both were cooked to perfection and more importantly ... delicious! David the manager showed great concern for our experience and sent us a dessert to celebrate. I highly recommend Pacifica for a great meal, and great customer service.
Pacifica is one of our favorite places to go. Never disappointed in the food or drink. We often take friends there for dinner.
Excellent restaurant. Like the option for lighter meals.
This is the second time at Pacificia to celebrate my Mom's birthday. We celebrated her 94th and this was her 96th. We have also dinned there in between birthdays. The food is excellent and the staff wonderful.
They brought her the most delicious ice cream cake ever!! If i lived in the desert (i just visit) i would be a regular at Pacifica.
While the ambiance was ordinary the service and the food as well as the wine by the glass offerings were excellent. The Ahi tuna was done just right and was definitely fresh. My wife opted for the filet which was also very good. Overall a very satisfying dining experience.
Outstanding as always. One of the best values in the desert
Excellent as always, Pacifica is doing a renovation, yet didn’t miss a step with quality. We prefer this restaurant when visiting Palm Desert
Wonderful food every time! Great value! Everything very good! Favorite place for seafood.
Early bird special is the best deal in town.
Staff was very attentive and courteous
I came here for my moms bday dinner, they didn’t acknowledge it at all. Our waitress was blah, but there was this other waitress who checked on us even though she wasn’t our server and she was amazing.
The place will be going through remodel so kinda dingy inside. Anyway, blah dinner. Go to Tommy Bahama instead!!
Had a wonderful Anniversary Dinner at Pacifica. Service was great..choose the "pre 5:30 menu"..very
good value!! And, thanks for the wonderful Cashew Ice Cream Dessert..it was fabulous!
Food is always consistently good. We enjoy it as a couple and also with friends and family.
