Pacifica Seafood Restaurant
日曜日 - 木曜日 20:30 - 23:30
Excellent service & food!
Admittedly the food was good and we both ordered the Chilean Seabass which was really good, but the strangest and most unpleasant evening at this "fine" dining establishment. We were seated and asked to move out of the main corridor which the hostess agreed to. We then met a lovely waitress who took our drink and appetizer orders and came back to order our meals. Then suddenly a "manager" came by to tell us our waitress had ended her shift...and we were introduced to another waiter. The new waiter had no idea of the status of our orders and promptly disappeared after we told him we had already placed our orders.
Now that would have been ok, except our original waitress was still in the restaurant, still waiting on new tables and we never saw our replacement again except from a distance. Never once came back to check on anything and the staff brought out our food, picked up our plates after eating and we sat there. No one came by for more drinks, dessert or "how is everything". After waiting a full 20 minutes after the table was cleaned, we walked to the front and asked for our check...PLEASZZZ....
Another manager at the front stand acted so innocently and apologized and said he would halve the bill. He did, but that does not make up for the lack or organization between wait staff, management and between floor managers. It spoiled a great evening, even with good food.
No we will not be going back.
Great place to spend with family lots of options, prices are reasonable, ambience is awesome! Would highly recommend!
Always fabulous food n good service. Best swordfish anywhere
First class food, service and atmosphere. Great patio dining.
Loved our food, the service was great and Chris our waiter was awesome...
Great service DAVID! Thank you.
Great food, service and ambiance. Eat on the patio!
Wonderful food with great options of full or half of entree. Server was extremely nice.
Great location for a business meeting. Staff and chef are very accommodating and ambiance is perfect. Fancy but not over the top.
Great Meal. Had Dungeons Salad. Female Manager on Duty was Excellent and accommodating.
Will definitely return. Had 2 couples from Canada with us. We are full time residents of Palm Desert.
Beautiful setting for a birthday celebration. Waiter did a great job of making it a special experience. Smaller portions available which I appreciated.
As always, the food was perfectly cooked and presented and our server was outstanding.
We arrived at 7:15 for our 7:15 reservation and were seated right away. They brought water and then took our drink and meal order. The wine came right away, but the meals were delayed more than 30 minutes due to an issue in the kitchen, they were very apologetic and made us happy. The meals were excellent and we will return when in the area again.
What a lovely restaurant and the honey roasted carrots for an appetizer were spectacular!!
It was very noisy, couldn’t visit across the table of 4. The fish of the day was doused with way too much sauce.
Thoroughly enjoyed dinner and the service.
Always a go to place for a wonderful dining experience
Great fresh tasting seafood. Wonderful al fresco dining area in beautiful southern California.
We had a wonderful experience. Your food was out standing and we would have the same thing again and again. Thank you for your generosity on Veteran's Day. We love your patio view.
One of our favorite places to take guests for dinner.
However, my rating of 2 stars "overall" and 2 for "service" is based SOLELY on the man who greeted us, saw our reservation, and told us we could only have a table inside. Upon being seated, I looked outside on the patio to see 7 or more empty tables with seating for 4. Knowing your policy of "first come, first served" to outdoor seating, I asked the nice girl who seated us to please go back and ask why we could not have one of the patio tables. She immediately returned and reseated us outside.
I had not seen that matre'd before. But I would hope he is trained better for future customers. This WAS NOT up to Pacifica standards at all!!!
That being said, the food was the best ever, as always!!!
Annual Veterans Day dinnner
This is a fabulous restaurant and we have been there many times. Our recent experience was a little off in the service department... Veterans Day freeby for vets and it was packed. Had to ask for bread and again for butter and again for lemons for our water. I completely understand that they do not staff for one time occasions
Celebrating veterans day
The restaurant's support of veterans keeps me coming back, the great meals and happy hour bar food rank among the best in the valley
We for dined for lunch outside on the patio. The sun was a little bright next to the wall, but the problem was solved by adding an extra chair at the end of the table. We had whitefish, sea bass, and sand dabs. They were all very good. The friend who had the sand dabs thought they were the best she’d ever had and wanted to go back the next day. Friendly server. All and all a good choice to have lunch catch up with friends.
Great service and delicious food. Enjoyed the swordfish with corn salsa and breaded sanddabs with zucchini risotto.
Our server, Cameron, was exceptional! Great asset to the restaurant.
Amazing food & service for my Dad's 75th bday!
Went out of their way to make a big deal of the occasion & have it feel special.
Always great service. Exceptional food! We eat here every time we are in the area and the food has always been a ten out of ten.
Always wonderful and along with the entire staff, it is always a perfect dining experience.
Wonderful seafood, excellent wine list; and the opportunity to get half portions of many of the entrees.
Love this place. Salmon is the best I’ve ever had by far. Gina is a wonderful server.
Service was great. Food was excellent. Will definitely go back.
Food was Awesome
Definitely will be back !
Excellent service and ambience. Wine selection is very good, great place to dine for special occasions or with family & friends.
Catfish entree was excellent as was the short ribs.
We are recent transplants from New England, so we tried not to have high expectations when folks recommended Pacifica as the best seafood restaurant in the area. We were pleasantly surprised - nice selection, they prepared the food as we liked it,. If I had seen the dessert menu before I ordered an appetizer, I would have opted to try one or more of the enticing selections. However, the large shrimp cocktail and abundant main course left me no room for another course. As it was, both my husband and I took home a good portion of our meals. And, the service could not have been more outstanding - Cameron was our server, but there were a host of others who ensured we did not lack for anything. Overall, a great dining experience- we will definitely go back.
Food was great. Atmosphere was great. Waitress was wonderful. Can't wait to go back.
