For years, this was one of my favorite dining places. Great drinks, great everything including service. The last two times, food has been average and customer service poor. (prices still high) example: arugula salad - very woody, hard to chew (replaced by more of the same; calamari appetizers - bottom of the barrel (small pieces, couldn't taste the calamari) To...

I love...love...love Pacifica. The View is the best ever...food is always good and the wait staff is very friendly. Sometimes I will go for a late lunch and have my choice of tables with the outstanding view. Their happy hour is always fun with great food and prices. Nice wine list!

Try to get a table on the patio for the best view, especially if you're there for lunch. Sunset for an early dinner would be rewarded with a terrific view. The bar seating is particularly popular with locals so try to secure your spot if possible. The martinis at the bar are excellent and they complement everything on the menu.

We stopped by for a cocktail before dinner. The bartender "Cameron" was incredible. His knowledge of famous cocktails and making custom drinks was very interesting, including giving us some tastes of things he uses in them. Wide screen TV's, very open and airy with Ocean views. We noticed several special dishes of food being served and can't wait to return... More

Attended hosted dinner with a group of 20 on a Thursday night in March. With a tripadviser rating of #4 in Del Mar, had hoped for something really special. It was nice and food quality was better than average. Seated outside under clear awning - setting was nice, but ocean view was across the street beyond the street-scape and not... More

One of my favorite places to sit and relax after a fun day at the rack track. The food and service are good. Get there in time to watch the sunset into the Pacific. Then walk off the dinner with a stroll around the village.

Four of us had an early dinner at Pacifica. We sat inside near the window as the sun went down. My wife and I shared a filet mignon with mashed potatoes and green beans which was very good. The others had black cod and Pacifica classic salmon dinner which they said were very good. The main courses were so delicious... More

Food was very good and great service. Just wished there was more options on the menu for people with nut and shellfish allergies.
