We ate there last night, and we had a terrific meal with excellent service. I had filet minion, which was better than ones at steakhouses I have patronized. My wife's halibut was excellent. Our deserts were very good. I will be back sooner than later!

Had breakfast here on Thanksgiving. Pricey. Tipped but not sure why. Left my Zella yoga jacket. Came back minutes later and it's gone. Guys at front didn't care. Won't be back.

my apologies for the missing jacket. i have quizzed my staff and they did not see your jacket or take your jacket. if is unfortunate but one of our other guests must have taken it by mistake or on purpose. i do not think this warrants a one star review but you have your opinion and i respect that. this...

The view was amazing. We had appetizers and drinks on the patio. Servers were attentive with drinks and different appetizers were endlessly flowing. We had a 3 course meal with 3 options for each. The food was delicious. This is a must try. I will definitely make this restaurant and the area a must on my next trip here.

Nice coffee shop with a patio and view. Good drinks and validated parking. Good to relax in and enjoy the sights.

It is a very nice place either dating, family party, or co-workers gathering place. In general, the foods are good, price is $$$, decor is very nice, too. You can take a outdoors seating to view a great sunset.

My girlfriends treated me to a birthday dinner here during a recent girls trip to Del Mar. Located on the second floor above Camino Del Mar, this open air restaurant offers up the dining trifecta: Great food, great ambiance, great service. While fresh seafood is their specialty, there are many, many options for non-seafood lovers. I started with the roasted... More

We came with a group of 7 for a work dinner and the service and food was great. The warm bread with butter was a tasty start. We shared appetisers of the ahi tuna, calamari and fries with a few people getting soup, before moving onto mains. Everyone ordered something different and all meals were so large, tasty and filling... More

The ambience and presentation were up to expectations, but our entrees were so salty as to be inedible. The staff did their best to make things right, but it was too little too late. We will not be back.

my apologies for the over salted entrees on your recent visits. no excuses, we blew it. my understanding is we quickly replace the two entrees, checked back that they were to your satisfaction and provided complimentary desserts. restaurants are not perfect unfortunately. lots of moving parts. if you are interested in returning to Pacifica if you will respond to me...

This is a review for anyone taking their kids out for dinner. I went to Pacific Del Mar with my three girls, ranging from ages 6 to 12. My wife was enjoying a girls weekend with her best friend and I needed to end the day with something special (I had already taken them out for breakfast and to Dave... More

We came with a friend whose company frequently entertains clients here. Arrived about 4:00 and settled down at the very attractive bar as the dining area didn't open until five. Turns out it was happy hour and we were taken care of by two very professional and attentive bartenders. Beer was served ice cold with chilled beer glasses to match... More
