Great Food, great menu and great view. Sit outside if you can (there are heat lamps if it's cold), the ambience is so much better. The wine selection was excellent and everyone in our party enjoyed their meal: from seafood to steak, all of it was delicious I would come back again.

We went for dinner with our dog and sat on the side patio. You have a nice view of the sunset and good people watching. They won an award for best Happy Hour and I'm not suprised. They have some tasty, original drinks and lots of small bites at special prices. Check their website for times. These deals make for... More

We spent a few days with friends in Del Mar and took them to dinner to say "Thank you/" We insisted that they choose where they wanted to go and they chose the Pacifica Del Mar. My wife and I have never had a dinner there and were delighted to try "something new." The ocean view is fantastic, the ambience... More

My daughter and I were looking for somewhere different in the San Diego area to have lunch and are so glad we selected the Pacifica Del Mar. It is in a great location. We both had salads that were delicious. The view is beautiful, staff efficient and the location was good for shopping after lunch. They will also validate your... More

We ate dinner here, after a recommendation of some friends. The patio is great, but fish tacos were not very good. Our service was slow and waited quite awhile to get our bill and another wait to pay it. We probably would not go back.

I ate here twice. Once for dinner, then the next day for lunch. his was our second choice for dinner. We actually left another restaurant, which will remain unnamed, that could not accommodate gluten free and dairy free requests in a delicious manner. I had the ribeye for dinner, chicken for lunch. Everything was delicious. No problem with orders sans... More

The food, the ambiance and the location are great. Love to watch the sunset while sipping on a cosmo surrounded by beautiful people. Their salmon is a must . BTW, love it for breakfast, lunch, happy hour and dinner.

This restaurant had been highly recommended (as the best seafood ever!) by someone we know from Canada (17-year old friend of our son) and we purposely made the effort to dine here while visiting San Diego. We were able to arrive during Happy Hour and had some delicious 1/2 price appetizers, namely rice balls, lobster rolls and poutine (of particular... More

We came here a few times for brunch, mainly due to the great location. However, the menu was a bit pricey for what they offered and the quality of the food was just ok.

The restaurant is located on the 4th level in an upscale shopping center right on Camino del Mar, the Main Street in Del Mar CA. Parking in the shopping center is limited and can be a bit challenging with valet costing a whopping $ 8.00. Ascend via elevator to the top level and take in the view of the gorgeous... More

Hi Lynn, Just reading your great review of us... thanks!!! One question for you... we do reimburse for valet if you spend more than $50, was this not communicated to you via your server or our host? If that is the case I apologize and would love to send you $8 plus a gift card for your next visit. Please... More
