I prefer more challenging food, but it is fine for what it is. Better than the Red Lobster and Arthur Treachers.

Visited midweek around 7pm and had at most a 10 minute wait to be seated. Service was outstanding, food was delicious, with generous portions cooked to perfection. Declined dessert but they brought a us a sample anyway to encourage us next time!

What a great seafood venue!. Every dish is sourced and prepared as though this was the Tour D'argent.in Paris. I had the swordfish. Far too many line chefs cook swordfish until it is tough. Not at Pacific Cafe. The wine list is modest, but they've...More

Oh I am so sorry to tell you that they are only open for dinner. They open at 5 pm. And I believe part of the fun is drinking wine on line while you wait your turn to be seated. No reservations. Hope you get to go... More
