Beautiful view, great food and drinks, nice atmosphere, superb location. Could be difficult to find parking sometimes, and the wait could be substantial - but well worth it. Highly recommended.

Everyone knows there are issues with Del Mar. For example, parking is extremely constrained but parking enforcement is not. In addition, traffic (particularly during the San Diego County Fair and Race season) is more like a parking lot. Well here's another issue with Del Mar that you should know about. While I generally enjoy Il Fornaio's happy hour, they have... More

We shared a dinner with friends here on a recent trip to the San Diego area. They live here and selected it for the sunset views. Unfortunately, the sun did not cooperate, but the setting was very nice and the outside area very comfortable. Our friends brought their own wine (which we would not have known you could do, and...

Had a delightful dinner with friends who are local so they made the selection although it was on our radar as well. If the weather had cooperated our sunset view would have been lovely. The food was very solid, prepared well and served at the appropriate temperature. My vegetable curry was loaded with big veggies, bok choy etc with a... More

I hadn't been to Pacifica in years and decided to meet my family for my birthday celebration. Great service, delicious food and a beautiful ocean view patio setting. Everyone's seafood choices were wonderful.

Excellent food and wine list in the heart of Del Mar. This place was packed with locals which is always a good sign. We went for our anniversary and were thrilled to learn that Thursday is half price bottles of wine. My husbands ribeye was cooked perfectly, my halibut was good too. I was able to order the small plate... More

We had an evening meal here on the patio - what a beautiful setting. It was very busy but the service didn't suffer. The seafood was delicious and we even received a free dessert after the server found out we were on our honeymoon! Would definitely recommend.

The view alone is worth the visit. The patio overlooks the ocean and is a lovely place to enjoy lunch or dinner. We were a group of six with many special requests. Our waitress was patient and informed and managed to meet everyone's needs. The service exceeded expectations and everyone enjoyed their meals.

We went back to experience the great fish dishes, especially the house salmon specialty, even though our waiter disappeared for a long stretch on our first visit. Second visit went without any hitches and the dishes were delicious.

Whenever I'm staying north of San Diego and want a great meal, with great service, and a great view, this is the restaurant I visit. The most recent visit was my 4th or 5th time, and I've never been disappointed. On this occasion, we celebrated the 1st Anniversary of some really good friends -- a romantic spot for all. Valet...
