our family and friends had the entire terrace for the dinner...wonderful seafood appetizers, tidbits being served around the room, great buffet with lamb, lots of delicious selections ..very friendly service...wines were very good...all in all, a most pleasant experience....PLUS...our hosts managed to have the sun set right out in the ocean off the beach...a true Hollywood extravaganza. Will try it... More

My daughter and I visited Pacifica on a recent Sunday and had a delicious lunch. The view was gorgeous, it was a perfect Del Mar day. Our waiter was very attentive, gave wonderful suggestions, and we enjoyed our visit. We tried the ahi appetizer--great! My daughter had a hamburger and loved it. I continued with the seared ahi soba noodle... More

The service, food and view were better than I expected. The fact that I closed the deal I was working on was just icing on the cake. My clients had never been to Pacifica before and plan to add it to the regular stops after our wonderful evening.

Our group of 4 really liked Pacifica. It's located on the second floor of a shopping area, a couple of blocks off the beach but still with a view of the ocean and the sunset. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was the service was OK, but not great. It was a Saturday night and they had... More

I love this place! I had to change our dinner reservation time 3 times and they were super accommodating! The food was absolutely delicious, some of the best I've ever had! I enjoyed the salmon, my son had the pan roasted chicken, they were both to die for! Great wine selection also. We sat outside on the wonderful patio and... More

Pacifica is a perfect place for a romantic glass of wine and appetizer while watching the sun set. The only downside is that the outdoor patio is reserved only for those eating dinner; if you want only a drink and also want a view, choose the two high cocktail tables that are directly inside along the restaurant and you'll have...

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
