Sat outside for the Happy Hour menu and even in the heat, (4:00 PM), with their misters and great waitress bringing glasses of ice, all worked very well.

Pacific is on point every single time! The salmon dish is out of this world. The ahi was pretty great also. They were very kind and brought us out a complimentary celebration desert for our anniversary. Only thing that needs improvement is the Key Lime Martini. That one needs a new recipe. Everything else was absolutely perfect. Great service here every time also!!!

One of my best evenings ever. We were reseated due to low lighting where we were first seated. My swordfish was tender and delicious. Cooked to perfection. Definitely made an impression on my date.

With the restrictions of patio seating only I found the patio to be doable with the fans and misters. The service with Matt was terrific.

Such a lovely place to be on a hot desert night. We sat outside with the misters on and were comfortable. A true escape for a night out.

During COVID-19 restaurants need to be more accommodating. I was a bit disappointed when we arrived not to be able to be seated on the dining patio where is it cooler. We live in an excess heat area, want to support the local eateries but this wasn't good. We were a group of 5. 2 of our guests wanted to order off the bar menu and the others off the dining menu. We were told we could not sit in the dining area if we wanted to order off the bar menu. Really? Bad.

It's impossible not to have a great evening when Natalie is your server. She's the best in the business. The food was excellent and we appreciate having the option to choose one of Pacifica's sunset dinners. A+ allaround.

Pacifica has an excellent setup for outside dining, a patio overlooking El Paseo. My wife and I had an appetizer and a main course that were beautifully prepared. Our food server was very attentive and gregarious. It's one of our favorite restaurants in the Palm Springs Area.

We have been frequent customers of Pacifica and always loved the food and service. Sadly with Covid they are doing a very limited menu and our favorite options were not on the menu. My swordfish was slightly overcooked and the Ahi was cut too thick and therefore overcooked on the outside and therefore chewy. It also would be better served with an Asian sauce soy etc versus mushroom.

The Crab Louie Salad was excellent! Light dressing and lots of Crab. We went at 5:15 and were pleasantly surprised about how cool the patio was at that time of the evening. The outdoor carpet in the patio definitely makes a huge difference with the heat!

We love Pacifica. It is one of our favorite places to bring our guest. The food is great and the staff is great as well. We have never had a bad experience here for happy hour or dinner. Love the cabana seating. Two of our must haves are the scallop and oyster appetizers.

Wonderful food, ambiance, and service! Came here for our anniversary (we were supposed to be in Maui) and were not disappointed. Food and cocktails were fantastic and our server was very attentive. Highly recommend the sea bass, ahi, bacon wrapped dates, and of course the hula pie for dessert!

We enjoyed every minute--and every bite--of our dinner at Pacifica. My husband and I were taking a friend out for her birthday. Because I made the reservation on Open Table, our wait person knew it was a birthday celebration, acknowledged it with good wishes for our friend, and the restaurant gifted her with a great dessert. It was pretty comfortable sitting on the outside patio despite the high temperature. All in all, a superb experience.

Was staying in Palm Desert and wanted a nice dinner to celebrate our anniversary. Chose Pacifica based on other reviews. It did not disappoint! We had reservations at 6:15, it was over 100 degrees out, so I was worried about outdoor dining at this time. They had shaded seating with misters and we were halfway close to the door that we got some of the escaped AC coming from. It was warm, but totally tolerable. We enjoyed a ceviche appetizer,followed by the sea bass which was one of the best I’ve had, highly recommend! We finished with the macadamia nut cookie pie. All so good! They even had 50% off all bottled wines! Our server, Nicole, was top notch. Highly recommend and look forward to going back again in the future!
