Always delicious food
Delicious dinner, nice ambiance, great service! We will go back again and again!
Excellent food and service. Best in the valley
Excellent food. Loved option of half orders which allowed us to split an appetizer and a salad. Liked ease of on line reservation.
The food was fantastic. Great fish choices and half off bottles of wine on Tuesdays! Stag’s Leap, Great food and a fun evening overall.
Great late afternoon dinner - service was superb, food enjoyable & the restaurant had a very pleasant ambience- we shall certainly visit again.
Outstanding in every way, excellent food and service.
1/2 price wine night was added bonus.
Try the ice cream pie.
Sea bass was superbly prepared in a light cream sesame sauce on top of perfectly sautéed bok choy. The half order was just a perfect serving size.
I have enjoyed this restaurant many times. However, on this experience, my guests and I felt very rushed. We ordered salads and they came immediately. One guests who finished hers first was asked at least three times if the server could remove her plate. As the others were still eating, she replied no, she would wait until we were done. When we finished our plates were immediately removed and our entrees were served. This all happened within approximately 30 minutes. If we had left when we were done eating we would have been out of the restaurant in less than 1 hour. Not what we were expecting. While I appreciate attentive service we felt like they were just trying to get us out as fast as possible. That was disappointing.
We always enjoy the amazing food at Pacifica. Love the 1/2 portions!!
This is the only sea food restaurant in the area and they do a nice job. Service can be spotty. And the food is 25% priced too high, but they have no business 5 months of the year so you have to expect to pay more.
Excellent food preparation, excellent service, low noise level...5 star
Had a wonderful birthday dinner. Thank you to our wait staff.
Additional lighting would be welcomed to read menu.
The food, service, and ambience on the outdoor terrace made for a perfect evening!
Good as usual. Only glitch is that now they have this buzzer thing to let you know when your table is ready. Kind of tacky for such a great restaurant, plus it didn't work.
Always a great meal at Pacifica. We were able to score a cabana on the outside balcony. Friends here from Cincinnati and Honolulu. Loved the food and the ambience. Service was top notch. The offering of half meals is great for senior citizens who don't want to overeat. The sugar-spiced salmon and the short ribs are our favorites. Tried the new prime rib of pork and really enjoyed it. Never had a bad experience at this restaurant.
We visit Pacifica each year while in Palm Desert. Arrive in time for Sunset Dinner. Always outstanding with a very affordable price. Service and ambiance are excellent.
Food was great Happy hours the best in the desert. Bar was very friendly and the service was outstanding.
The suger coated salmon was as great as I remember from years past. We always look forward to it.
Pacifica is one of the best restaurants in the Cochella Valley! Everything was perfect (as always).
We always visit Pacifica when in the Valley. Will be back when our Daughter and Son-in-law arrive in a week. Great food and wine. Starting with the warm sour dough bread and butter.
Love eating on the patio. Definitely a must if you’ve never been before.
This is our second time to this place and I must admit I preferred it the first time. The food is good but pricey. The outside patio is nice but when you get a pitcher of water spilled on you with a chilly night you should get some kind of compensation. Nothing which was a disappointment since we spent a lot of money and told the waitress about it. We were freezing because were wet....
The fireplace is a nice setting outside as well.
Give it a try!
This may be my new favorite restaurant. We've been there three times in the past two and a half weeks. The fish stew is excellent, the ahi very fresh and tender. Everything we've had there has been excellent.
Solid as usual. Heaters weird. Scolding hot.
Wonderful find in Palm Desert! Great fresh seafood options with some entrees priced for half portions!
Had a very nice meal for a birthday celebration. Server was efficient and courteous. Food was excellent with nice presentation. Would recommend the happy hour, especially.
Loved the ambience, service was very good. After theatre dinner - close
Excellent food! Was able to sit outside despite the cool evening due to the many lit space heaters.
we enjoyed our meal. Everyone liked their food . My calamari was dry and needed a lot of sauce.
the service was outstanding !
Another outstanding evening at Pacifica with my wife.
Always a great place to dine as food quality is very consistent with numerous options for starters and entrees on menu. The wine menu is awesome with competitive prices for quality wine. The ambience is great particularly on the outdoor patio overlooking El paseo with a view of the mountains. We dine there several times each winter season. Pacifica is one of our favourite restaurants in the Valley.
We had a wonderful visit. Great food, exceptional service by David.
We had a marvelous table outside and waiters insured we were comfortable.
Cant' wait to go back
We especially love the smaller portions! Everything was top notch!
Bad experience. No one seemed to know what what's going on. Hated atmosphere. Seemed like a place where old people gather. Food was average, at best. Will not return.
Our favorite restaurant in Palm Desert. Food is always excellent and service normally very good. Should there be any occasional issues/mishaps, the managers are always fantastic in getting things right.
I've been to Pacifica quite a number of times in Palm Desert and many more times in Del Mar. This dinner with friends was at the "top of my list" in terms of service and quality of food. Our server David couldn't have been more helpful, considerate, or professional. When I couldn't decide between the Seared Ahi or the Chilean Sea Bass he offered to give me a "half portion" of each so I could enjoy both! Everyone in my party had a wonderful meal and we all look forward to returning again soon!
