Outside on the patio is better - inside the noise is rather loud and bothersome, especially since we were near some larger groups. But food and service excellent.

service was quite adequate with the waiter there when you needed him. Food was very tasty and the smaller portion of my shortribs and wife's sea bass was the right size. finish off dinner with the ice cream pie and you have a hit!

For a seafood restaurant this place has a very limited choice. Four or five options only. I went to have seafood but ordered chicken!

We were greeted warmly by the hostess. We were seated right away and the attendants and server were friendly and professional. They brought water and warm bread right away. Our meals were absolutely delicious! We had the salmon, swordfish, and sea bass, all that were so tasty and beautifully presented. Our server checked on us regularly and we never lacked for anything. This was our first visit after wanting to come here for a long time. We will be back!!

Food was awesome; best salmon I've had in a very long time. Service was very attentive. Unfortunately it was too hot/humid to sit outside; love the views.

Always fantastic. Always great food and service with a smile. The spiced salmon dish is the greatest salmon dish at any restaurant we have gone to. I would skip the Whiskey Sour drink on the cocktail menu however. That one fell short. Wish that they would carry Casamigos tequila. The shrimp pasta dish was fantastic and so was the Ahi Tuna app!

We went to Pacifica just before 5:00 p.m. to take advantage of their sunset menu prices. The sunset menu gave you two courses for $25. We had the clam chowder, mulagatawny soup, seafood kabobs, and salmon. Everything was delicious. The portions were a good size as well. For dessert we split the chocolate mocha torte (not sure if that was the name exactly), it was a perfect way to end our meal.

Salmon was a little strong, mashed potatoes over refined and thin green beans overcooked.

We always enjoy the food at Pacifica and have been here several times over the years. We did notice that the leval of service is suffering a bit this time. Seems to be understaffed.
