Pacific Catch offers several different poke dishes, including the excellent Serrano Poke with an extra bite to it. The single serving was perfect for a light lunch, and the generous serving comes with wonton crisps. My first vist, and I will be back!

Perfect location in the heart of San Mateo. Right next to the movie theater. Nice atmosphere for parties or dates. Good food and drinks too!

I've been there with a friend for dinner. Both of us just took a salad, with chicken and crabs. Nothing special at all. Average taste, average quality, average price. Good for a quick meal.

Dropped in with a bestie from SD and had an awesome table by the fireplace. Perfect for sipping wine and enjoying dinner on our rainy night. Food is always yummy and quite good!

Though this restaurant is next to the Cinemark Theaters in downtown SM, I'd never eaten here until yesterday. I had been expecting a genetic seafood place, and wow was I happily surprised. The food has a pan asian feel, including Hawaii ~ and everything was...More

Went here on a date for Valentine's Day. Atmosphere was nice. Food was above average but not excellent but would definitely come back and try something else. Obviously by the name there are sea food options but the selection just didn't seem great. But what...More
