Celebrating my Birthday and it was Fabulous
Entrees were amazing and appetizers were amazing. We didn’t order sides to share because nothing tickled our fancy. Service was great as well reserve early for a cabana seat
Food was wonderful, great place
Probably the best chocolate gelato outside of Rome. Seafood stew was just ok. Tuna tartar starter excellent
Matthew was our server top professional
Our waiter was amazing. The food was top notch. We had two small children with us...there were covered cups with straws, colouring placemats and their menu at table five minutes after we sat down. Our waiter, wish I had his name, was so helpful with the menu.... we will definitely go there again when we are in Palm Desert. Deborah Opper, Ontario, Canada.
It was excellent
Can't say enough good things! Fabulous!
Food was excellent! Service was a bit slow, but it did give us plenty of time to enjoy the company of our friends. Our favorite was the Tuna tartar appetizer. It was amazing.
The Crab Louie Salad was one of the best I can remember. The Calamari appetizer was perfect. It was a great meal, a great place to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday.
One of the nicest dining venues in the Palm Desert area , it is not enough to earn it a * review. The service was lackluster as we heard more "be right back " than "how can I help you ". The meal was just fair with my lobster tail as dry as the Coachella valley. On the posItive side, my wife enjoyed her Ahi Tuna entree. Is where I dine more important than what I eat ?? Tune in again for an update.
It’s a pleasure to go into a restaurant and receive magnificent food and service, and also be able to carry on a conversation. This place is pricey, but don’t let that stop you. I had a great dinner for $28.
Great food & great service. We enjoyed our time at Pacifica. Our server, Matthew, was very attentive and anticipated all our needs. My only critique would be the food arrived faster than we expected.
We enjoyed the dinner. The service was good. We were on our way to a concert and wished for a later time but Open Table would not commit to the later time; however when our requested time came there were numerous tables available. That was a bit of a disappointment but our earlier time placed us into a Sunset deal for a smaller meal, which we liked.
Great dinner outside on the deck. We all loved our dinner and will be back for sure.
Pacifica Seafood is our favorite place to eat in the desert. Matthew is a great server.
Great time celebrating a birthday dinner.
The service was tops. Drink a were larger than most other restaurants, but a bit less expensive. The food was very good. And an enormous, complimentary dessert for a birthday topped it off.
Have always had a really good time here, other than special days like Valentine's when the food was surprisingly expensive and the service was slower
Fresh fish was amazing! They buy locally so all ingredients are fresh with healthy choices. Smaller portions are also available. The service is amazing and views from the outdoor seating is breathtaking! Highly recommend!
Great variety of the freshest seafood.
The food and service was 5 star. My only comment would be to select music for the generation of the customers. And maybe lower the volume level a bit. Love the early dinner selections.
Always one of the very best restaurants in the Coachella Valley!
Very much enjoyed this restaurant. I ordered the Chilean Sea Bass and it was pan fried to perfection. The baked scallops were also amazing as an appetizer. Other dishes ordered by our party included a seared ahi tuna and a squid ink pasta with shrimp - both delicious. I highly recommend this lovely restaurant. Great view too!
The food here is outstanding. The one complaint I have is the Maitre D, Waldo. We originally did not make a reservation due to the fact the winter season had not started and we decided to walk in. We were all but turned away at the door, told by Waldo “seating is not available except for the bar.” We went to the bar and I was able to make a reservation right on my phone with several time slots available. When I let him know we make a reservation he then said, “we only have inside, nothing is available for you outside.” We sat by the window and there were no less than 5 tables available the entire time outside. Might want to think about your customer service skills at the front of the house. I thought it was just me, but our entire party felt he was incredibly rude to the point of insulting. We are regular winter residents of Palm Desert and will not be returning to Pacifico, which is unfortunate because the food is amazing. The food is the only reason I rated it as high as I did. To top it off it was both our wedding anniversaries. Waldo, if you read this, may want to work on your customer service. You aren’t the most important person in the restaurant, your customers are.
Although we were ready to order our entire meal, the server insisted on taking our drink and appetizer orders first and left us with the menus. Initially we didn't think that this was a big deal as we were sure he'd come back to take our entree orders before the appetizers came. WRONG. The appetizers came and we were left to shuffle the menus around, which were still left with us after the plates were dropped off at the table. Granted, it was moderately busy that evening, but our server never checked in with us that maybe, we might be able to eat more comfortably if we didn't have all these menus lying around. We finally had to flag him down to take our entree orders and it was only then the damned menus disappeared. We've been here many times before--food is good but service definitely hit and miss.
Great restaurant for any dining experience. Good food and service, along with friendly staff.
Seafood tower was fantastic! Entrees were great. Service was very good. Highly recommend.
Great restaurant and ambience , fantastic service , food quality is first class and wine list is very good , can’t fault restaurant food or service in any way
Just a great experience. The food, the service (both waiter and bus staff) were great. The Maitre D greeted us in a friendly yet professional manner. If you don't go, you're really missing a treat.
Pacifica consistently affords an enjoyable dining experience. My partner and I take lunch or dinner on a near weekly basis, with lunches outnumbering dinners. Our most recent experience was with friends on a Sunday evening when, to our delighted surprise, bottles of wine were half off. Among us, we had orders of ceviche, tuna tartar, swordfish and halibut. The two appetizers were beautifully presented and delicious, excellent of their kind. The fish was prepared precisely to our taste, seared on the outside and flakes glistening. Service was attentive and considerate. We were outside so the noise level was just right for conversation. Over three years, my partner and I have had only completely enjoyable experiences. Salads are perfect for lunch and I particularly like the catfish with mustard sauce. As with most of the better restaurants in the area, the bar produces a thoroughly credible martini.
Amazing! The staff were very attentive and knew the menu in and out! Made for a fantastic night!
We ate outside and it was lovely.
As always—- good food, good drinks, and good service. And decent prices.
Try their salmon, always excellent.
Oysters are always good and usually from Pacific Northwest.
We both had the Escolar and it was perfectly prepared and presented.
First time I tried the sunset menu and was pleasantly surprised. Portions were between half and full size and reasonable priced with the soup or salad. Easy enough to order by 5:30.
Love this place when I'm in the Desert!
Amazing service from start to end, the host was friendly and profesional and our waitress on Wednesday night was top notch ! She was what everyone would wish to have as a waitress when you celebrate an anniversary. Attentive and sweet. Excellent service and excellent food ! Delicious! We would definitely come back when in town .
The food at Pacifica is among the rest that I have ever had. The food was so good we went back the next day so we could taste other entrees. In addition, the waitress was excellent.
