We had heard good things about the restaurant. It was pricey but we decided to try it. Can you spell disappointed? It was pricey and the food was just okay. Good service and niece ambiance. Just not worth the price.

What a great place. We have all ways enjoyed dining there. The staff are polite & friendly and give good advice on the menu items. They also offer 1/2 portion which we find leave just enough room for desert. Will return soon.

Attentive service. Option to order small portion (half) or regular portion for many entrees. Noise level on the patio was quite intense and we had some difficulty hearing each other at our table for four during prime dining hour when all tables were full. The noise level improved after 7:30. The salmon (sugar/maple) was delicious.

Every year Pacifica hosts veterans and active duty to a complimentary entree. This is so greatly appreciated. The food is always wonderful, both in preparation and quality. I had the spiced salmon and it was delicious.

Every Veteran should support this wonderful restaurant. On Veterans day they said " pick any entree on the menu it's on us" and the food and service were exceptional.

Service was not good. My husband and I got his soup and my salad spaced way far apart. Then brought him a salad he did not order. Charged us for it. Food was very good.

This is my go-to favorite place to enjoy happy hour, lunch,! and fine dining for special occasions. Order the Crab Louie; if you love fresh crab, this is incredibly satisfying and filling.
The happy hours in the lively and friendly bar are also great.

Service was terribly slow! The restaurant was busy but the wait staff was inattentive. We normally grab a seat at the bar but had a party of 6, do sat in the dining room in a back room. It was almost like they forgot about us.

This is a very popular, and very busy restaurant. Many of the service staff have worked there for years, which (of course) is a good thing. Very good seafood, and one of the better Happy Hour restaurants in the marketplace. Their Sunset Dinners are also a great value, but you MUST order before 5:30, which we slightly missed. No problem, the regular dinner menu provided us with a very enjoyable dining experience.

The food and service are always OUTSTANDING at Pacifica. For my friends Birthday and for a guest visiting from Miami Beach it was a great Birthday visit. The "huge" slice of IceCream Cake with candle was lovely. Thank you.

 (San Francisco)·Dined on November 9, 2017

We typically look forward to eating here every time we are in town. This time was such a huge disappointment! Maybe a new chef? It was my husbands birthday and I thought a romantic dinner at Pacifica was just the thing to celebrate his day. Our waiter was wonderful. I splurged on wine and the evening started out great! After quite a what our food finally came. I had ordered the petit filet which was more like a dry hockey puck. It was accompanied by a cabernet sauce that was overly thick and salty. The potato gratin had to have been from last week, maybe even from the freezer. I chose not to make a big deal about it because it had taken so long to get our meal to begin with. Before we left the electricity went out and crashed the cash register. We sat for nearly an hour in the dark listening to nearby tables say they were leaving without paying. We did pay and I did leave a comment card for the manager but never received a reply. I don't think we will be going back again. Such a disappointment! And there are so many other options for Great food in the desert.
