Our server David was amazing. We had such a fun time celebrating our wedding anniversary and Pacifica Seafood Restaurant was the perfect place for us to do that.

We set outdoors and had an great view of the desert lights. The menu allows for half plates, which was perfect for us as one of the members of our party choose 2 half meals which was awesome. Vianna was our server, she was great. Ask to be set at one of her tables!

From start to finish our experience at Pacifica was outstanding. Our server was so kind and friendly. He seem to truly enjoy his work. He gave great recommendations and always checked in at the right time. All staff there was friendly and professional. The food was AMAZING! The Chilean seabass was cooked perfectly. The coconut rice underneath soaked up all the flavors nicely. And the soy glazed book choy added a pop of color and texture to the dish, as well as earthiness. I would come back in a heartbeat.

We have been enjoying Pacifica for many years. We love sitting outside. This time we sat inside. The service and food was excellent. We felt the interior is a bit faded and dated. Maybe time for a facelift. We will be back and will sit outside the next time!

The food was delicious! I had the Ahi and my husband had the short ribs. The beurre blanc sauce on the Ahi was sooo good. Our server was great and we had a nice table with a view of the surrounding mountains.

A little disappointed because 3 of the 4in our party specifically selected Pacifica for the Crab Louie and it was not available. Wish we had seen it posted before we sat down.

We were greeted by a very friendly hostess and were seated almost immediately. We were then greeted by the manager who welcomed us to the restaurant. The waiter came to the table and introduced himself. Chris, a great waiter. We were given our menus. Bread and water were served right away. Chris informed us about the daily specials. Everything went very well. We really enjoyed the delicious food, our visit and will definitely return..

Excellent service! Food excellent and the happy hour specials for food reasonably pried. Only negative is happy hour drinks were only allowed in the bar area, not the dining room, even though it was just five feet from the bar area.

We enjoyed the quiet atmosphere even though the bar area was busy. Sat inside and enjoyed the view of the mountains. Halibut special was delicious with balanced Asian flavors. Also tried their Sunset dinner with Caesar salad and seafood kabob of fish, scallops, and shrimp which was very good. Finished up with Mocha chocolate cake so rich and yummy. We come here often to enjoy exceptional food and service.

The food was great. In the summer outdoor eating is iffy. We had a little problem with the sun. It is best to dine when the sun has set. Good service .

I was very hesitant about sitting outside in 110 degree heat, but it was actually pretty nice. With the misters and fans going it was comfortable. Our server was lovely and our food delicious. Definitely will return.

It was not a busy night, restaurant was pretty empty on this Thursday. For but for some reason, service was so slow. It felt like 20 minutes went by for us to get a waiter to take our drink order. Food was good tho.

We had high expectations based on previous reviews but we weren’t impressed. Food was ok, service was lacking, and we didn’t think this was a 5 star restaurant based on other places we have been.

Taken to our table at 7:30. First appetizer arrived at 8:25. Then everything piled up. When finished, had to wait at an empty, drinkless table for 10-15 minutes before finally going to the cashier to pay our check.

Always a wonderful meal at Pacifica! We had a little problem with our food not being hot. They immediately took the plates away and replaced them with perfect temperature meals. Then they sent over a dessert to apologize. Not necessary, but much appreciated. We dine there frequently and the service, as well as the food, is a major reason we return again and again. Thank you for a great dining experience!

We had dinner on the patio, watched the sunset around 7pm. I had the insalata Melania's fruit & salmon salad and my wife had the dungeness crab louie salad, both were very good. Overall, a very nice dinner out, while on vacation.
