We almost didn't stop here: we weren't excited to eat inside a hotel on a coastal sightseeing trip... BUT We are so glad we did! Best clam chowder...maybe ever! Turkey ciabatta and personal pizza were terrific too. Friendly service, interesting art on the walls, and attractive Embassy courtyard made for a nice experience.

Pacifica Cafe is the only restaurant for Embassy Suites in Seaside, CA (next to Monterey). The menu is attractive, but somewhat limited. The service depends on what time of day you go, but servers are attentive and helpful.

As we were without a car, it was convenient to have meals in the hotel. Apart from breakfast, we ate 3 lunches (soup and freshly cooked bread rolls) and 2 dinners. They were all nicely served and enjoyable.

We had the calamari for an appetizer and it was actually very good. I had the caesar salad with shrimp and didn't eat half....my husband had the caesar salad with tri tip which was over cooked. The service was excellent which is why it's getting a higher rating....

We were given a complimentary dinner for two because my shower was not hot enough and I would take a lukewarm shower again to enjoy the food at Pacifica Cafe. We had the Filet Mignon which was cooked perfectly! The clam chowder was excellent and would have had my vote at Pismo Beach's Chowder Fest this past year! The restaurant... More

The ranch dressing was very watery. I felt bad for the one staff who had to wait tables, bartender, deliver room servicd while a man in a suit walked around asking if every thing was ok.

Had the Calamari appetizer and really enjoyed it! Very tender and cooked to perfection. The bartender even remembered my non alcoholic beverage of choice!

We ate there late on a Saturday night and actually had to sit in the bar area because they were closing soon but that was okay. The waiter was very friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable of the menu. We started with a grilled artichoke appetizer that came with several sauces to dip in. My wife and I agree that is one... More

decent food good pizza. the restaurant is inside the embassy suites and has no water views. there are other nicer places to eat. It's good if you don't want to leave your hotel and like complimentary drinks during the manager's reception.
