A restaurant that bills itself as a place for sea food ought to have a greater variety on its menu. We were offered exactly two fish choices. That said dishes were well prepared and attractively presented. Wines are very reasonably priced. In all, we had a very pleasant evening.

Food, and restaurant was a solid experience! Waiter was average, when asking for the heat to be turned he disappeared for 15 minutes ignoring our requests. When looking for the bill I had to flag him Dow waiting another 10 minutes.

Pacifica is a lovely indoor/outdoor space right on El Paseo, overlooking the street. We sat outside under heaters & had a great dinner. I’m from the Northwest so I’m picky about my salmon, and I had some of the best salmon I’ve ever tasted on my salad, the Insalata Melania (which does not refer to the current First Lady.). The sides of Brussels Sprouts and corn risotto were also delicious. Service was first-rate, professional, and friendly. We can’t wait to go back!

We had a wonderful 13th birthday celebration dinner for my daughter and five of her fiends. The service was great and the food was as well. Thank you so much to Pacifica and their staff for helping to make our dining experience so fabulous!

Outstanding meal in every way. The server was attentive and efficient, and the food was excellent. We plan to have at least one meal there every time we visit the Palm Springs area.

We had the Mustard Catfish, a regular favourite of ours, and as usual, it was prepared perfectly, the fish was flaky and light, and the 1/2 price Tuesday bottle of Pacifica-labeled Cabernet Sauvignon was beyond reproach. Service was quick but not rushed, and the setting was outstanding. Always a lovely evening at Pacifica!

Had guests in town and had requested outdoor seating but unfortunately we were put in overflow outdoor area at the back of the restaurant which cleared quite quickly leaving us all alone for about the last hour. Our server was great but it was a very odd experience to be put in the equivalent of the ‘broom cupboard’ while the rest of the restaurant was buzzing. As a regular at Pacifica, we expected better....

We always have good experiences, service and food while dining at Pacifica however this evening they were overwhelmed and service was a unorganized. Our poor waitress offered apologies for the food delays and cross orders. We truly did feel she meant it and stated the mistakes that happened. But because we were there to eat and no rush to for anything thereafter we felt her gratitude for the mistakes and/or problem occurred should not be burden on her for any misunderstanding. You cannot plan for a influx of people into a restaurant but they at least acknowledge and offered to make it up with desert and food credits. All in all, we were very happy and fulfilled.

Loved the location with patio dining and view. Food was good overall. Starters were great - baked oysters and the bacon-wrapped dates. Tuscan-style Escolar was an enjoyed and solid entree, but the twin lobster tails could have been more flavorful as well as the lackluster sides. And being the most expensive entree on their seafood restaurant menu, I expected more. Birthday dessert of their macadamia nut ice cream pie was welcomed and enjoyed.

I booked Pacifica well in advance and requested a table overlooking El Paseo.
It the second time I was moved to a different table. It was on the patio but in the interior area. Much noisier and you. Feel rushed.
We were 3 guests and the tables I requested were occupied by 2 people (deuces) at tables for four. Not sure why that happened.
Really, how much in advance do you have to reserve a table?
