“Great View of The Pacific Ocean”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

Pacific Coast Grill, nice little restaurant in Carlsbad, CA. Great food, even better view of the pacific ocean, watching people surf, swim, walk the dogs, kite surfing. Great service not an everyday place, little on the expensive side. Great place to go if your in the neighborhood.

“Amazing view, service, food”
Reviewed 27 September 2013 via mobile

We sat at a booth with an amazing view of the pacific. Our server was prompt, knowledgable, and friendly. We had the hot rock appetizer which was interesting it came with slices of raw ahi tuna and filet mignon. There was also a piping hot rock you cooked your own meat on to the temp you wanted with delicious sauces. We also had a quesadilla (can't remember exactly what it was called) and the surf and turf roll that was also delicious.
Our server was able to describe each entree and answer all the questions we had. The steaks were amazing, tender and cooked exactly right. The Mahi Mahi entree was also delicious. It was a perfect nice dinner out for us!

Cocktails and wine list are nice and ample . Very nice selection of apps and main dishes . Staff both friendly and non rushing make for an enjoyable visit . If it gets cool they have heaters and blankets

“Prefect beach views, friendly staff, generally excellent food, and fair prices for a location like this!”
Reviewed 23 September 2013 via mobile

We had Saturday night dinner here, watching the sun set. Gorgeous atmosphere overlooking the ocean. The decor, newly updated, is stylishly beachy (aged wood & industrially chic metal sleekly combined). Our waiter was absolutely tops, from start to finish. The food, despite some complaining reviews I had read on TA, was genuinely delicious. It was ample, creative and expertly prepared -- at our table at least. The specialty cocktails and desserts are noteworthy too. Loved the PCG classic Margarita. And my guest had a berry margarita she loved as well -- NOT cloyingly sweet even. Their crème brûlée would only have been better if it were warm. Happily, it still was creamy and the brûlée sugar topping perfectly crisp anyway.
