very nice food, server was a little inattentive
It was was a busy night at Pacifica's. We decided to eat in the bar area and it turned out great. Our dinners were served quickly without a single problem. The Mustard Catfish was perfect and the Scampi equally great. I was surprised with the best chocolate ice cream desert in the valley to celebrate my birthday. My complements to the bar ladies. They did an amazing job keeping up with the crowds while staying upbeat.
Food was ok but not exceptional, service was excellent. Value/$ understated.
Terrific. Always lives up there your expectations
Always delicious food
Delicious dinner, nice ambiance, great service! We will go back again and again!
Great menu and great service.
Excellent food and service. Best in the valley
We were seated for lunch and our server came over to say hi and get a drink order. That was basically the last we saw of her. She was totally overwhelmed by the tables she had. We asked another server to find ours and she came back and said she was having a hard time finding her. After another 10-15 minutes, the hostess, Tracy, walked by and we grabbed her to place our order. Still, our waitress never came back. Eventually, after our meal was served, she came back to see if we wanted more water. Absolutely unacceptable.
Despite the lack of service, the lunches were fabulous. But, I am not sure if I will be going back for lunch.
When Tracy brought us our check, our waitress's name was still on the top of the receipt. I have never done this, but left her $5.00-less than 10%. I have never done that before.
I was also surprised that nothing was taken off the bill or a free dessert offered for our issues.
I have been to Pacifica dozens of times and have always thought of it as an amazing restaurant with great service. That was not the case today and will definitely think twice about returning based on the service.
We had reserved for the patio. Restaurant called us hours before to let us know that the wind was up on the patio, they had no space inside at our reservation time but that they did have us at the least windy table. We could either keep the table, change the time or cancel. I thought this was excellent service. We decided to try it out & ended up having a wonderful dinner mostly thanks to excellent service during dinner. Short ribs were excellent; not crazy about the ahi tuna, salads were good. Reserve the patio & ask for a cabana. Very cozy even with high winds.
Excellent food. Loved option of half orders which allowed us to split an appetizer and a salad. Liked ease of on line reservation.
The food was fantastic. Great fish choices and half off bottles of wine on Tuesdays! Stag’s Leap, Great food and a fun evening overall.
Great late afternoon dinner - service was superb, food enjoyable & the restaurant had a very pleasant ambience- we shall certainly visit again.
Outstanding in every way, excellent food and service.
1/2 price wine night was added bonus.
Try the ice cream pie.
Sea bass was superbly prepared in a light cream sesame sauce on top of perfectly sautéed bok choy. The half order was just a perfect serving size.
When we didn’t all order drinks party of 3 our server must have put us on the bad list and pretty much ignored us even though I was looking for another drink. Food was great as usual, service took a dive big time. Your restaurant is usually a favorite. Might want to look into some new help that really wants to work there. Bummer.
I have enjoyed this restaurant many times. However, on this experience, my guests and I felt very rushed. We ordered salads and they came immediately. One guests who finished hers first was asked at least three times if the server could remove her plate. As the others were still eating, she replied no, she would wait until we were done. When we finished our plates were immediately removed and our entrees were served. This all happened within approximately 30 minutes. If we had left when we were done eating we would have been out of the restaurant in less than 1 hour. Not what we were expecting. While I appreciate attentive service we felt like they were just trying to get us out as fast as possible. That was disappointing.
This is the only sea food restaurant in the area and they do a nice job. Service can be spotty. And the food is 25% priced too high, but they have no business 5 months of the year so you have to expect to pay more.
We always enjoy the amazing food at Pacifica. Love the 1/2 portions!!
Had a wonderful birthday dinner. Thank you to our wait staff.
Additional lighting would be welcomed to read menu.
Excellent food preparation, excellent service, low noise level...5 star
The food, service, and ambience on the outdoor terrace made for a perfect evening!
Good as usual. Only glitch is that now they have this buzzer thing to let you know when your table is ready. Kind of tacky for such a great restaurant, plus it didn't work.
Always a great meal at Pacifica. We were able to score a cabana on the outside balcony. Friends here from Cincinnati and Honolulu. Loved the food and the ambience. Service was top notch. The offering of half meals is great for senior citizens who don't want to overeat. The sugar-spiced salmon and the short ribs are our favorites. Tried the new prime rib of pork and really enjoyed it. Never had a bad experience at this restaurant.
We visit Pacifica each year while in Palm Desert. Arrive in time for Sunset Dinner. Always outstanding with a very affordable price. Service and ambiance are excellent.
Food was great Happy hours the best in the desert. Bar was very friendly and the service was outstanding.
The suger coated salmon was as great as I remember from years past. We always look forward to it.
Pacifica is one of the best restaurants in the Cochella Valley! Everything was perfect (as always).
We always visit Pacifica when in the Valley. Will be back when our Daughter and Son-in-law arrive in a week. Great food and wine. Starting with the warm sour dough bread and butter.
Love eating on the patio. Definitely a must if you’ve never been before.
This is our second time to this place and I must admit I preferred it the first time. The food is good but pricey. The outside patio is nice but when you get a pitcher of water spilled on you with a chilly night you should get some kind of compensation. Nothing which was a disappointment since we spent a lot of money and told the waitress about it. We were freezing because were wet....
The fireplace is a nice setting outside as well.
Give it a try!
This may be my new favorite restaurant. We've been there three times in the past two and a half weeks. The fish stew is excellent, the ahi very fresh and tender. Everything we've had there has been excellent.
Solid as usual. Heaters weird. Scolding hot.
Wonderful find in Palm Desert! Great fresh seafood options with some entrees priced for half portions!
Had a very nice meal for a birthday celebration. Server was efficient and courteous. Food was excellent with nice presentation. Would recommend the happy hour, especially.
Loved the ambience, service was very good. After theatre dinner - close
Excellent food! Was able to sit outside despite the cool evening due to the many lit space heaters.
