I'm eating at the Surfspot right now. Great hummus, great arugula salad, great pizza. Every Pacifican was so excited when this restaurant opened. Besides tasty and innovative food, they have great bands, volley ball, and outside fire pits. But what I'm most impressed with recently is their catering ability. They were the best caterers I've had in nine years. Courtney,... More

Have not tried everything on the menu, but have enjoyed everything tried! Besides the delicious kale salad (share this!), we love the burgers w/ caramelized onions (yummy thin fries accompany), mussels in broth, and killer appetizers (ooh... those bacon-wrapped dates). Lots of folks order the wood-fired pizzas. Plenty of seating inside. Outside patio in the back is very nice and... More

My high school group held a reunion brunch here yesterday. I just can't say enough about Jennifer and her team at The Surf Spot! I used the online form to inquire about our event, and immediately received a written response. Within several days we had the date and time confirmed, with Jennifer continuously following up and ensuring the menu was... More

After walking the Devils Slide in the afternoon we were tired and hungry when we arrived at 6.30 but although the place was very busy, we were immediately brought menus, drinks, and corn chips with salsa dip. This turned out to be 'Taco Tuesday' with taco specials, and I picked the option to 'build my own' taco plate from any... More

The food and service is always amazing. Their pizzas are so good and Taco's on Taco Tuesday are the best in the bay area. If i am in the mood for a salad, ill get their Kale salad, its always fresh. Their market items are really good too, its always fresh and creative.

Five of us went to lunch on a sunny, warm Sunday in beautiful Pacifica. The restaurant was moderately busy, but far from packed. We ordered drinks after a fairly brief wait. We then waited at least 10 minutes for drinks to arrive and to place our meal orders. The cocktails had come without straws to stir them so we requested... More

I am from South Africa. My girlfriend and I took a road trip all along the coast of California. We decided to have Dinner at this spot for our anniversary. The service was POOR in a MINUS! The waiter that attended us was totally inattentive we only saw him twice, when he took our order and when we had to... More

We went there on a date night. We live in Pacifica and close. We heard good reviews from friends, so we expected a great time. The service in the beginning was slow and the person who seated us was preoccupied with talking to her co workers. Not a good start. Our server was busy with a huge party, so we... More

decent food, it was busy we had to sit out side. But we sat by fire and it was cozy. They need more heaters for the out side, but the service was friendly and fast. My meal wasn't the greatest but it was tasty. Will go again

Surf Spot has been my go to place for a good meal for the last year. The service is good, the food is consistent and constantly changing. They have their regular menu items and will add some chefs specials to spice things up a bit. It's a large place with lots of outside seating. They have live music outside although... More
