Over 150 vodkas, all something like $6 in the bar with all day happy hour. Also in the bar is probably the best burger in the valley (I know, see food place with a killer burger?! Yes!) restaurant has a great outdoor area with cabanas, somewhat formal for dinner. We eat at the bar 95% of the time...

I have eaten here a few times, 2 lunches and a dinner. I like the offering of 1/2 plate size entree's. You can have an appetizer and not have to struggle through a large main course. I asked for a quiet location and was accommodated. Great seafood selection and very nicely prepared. A common complaint of mine is when the... More

We recently dined at Pacifica and had an excellent meal.we shared Caesar Salad. It was spicey but quite tasty. I had the Ahi while my wife had the Chilean Sea Bass. Both entres were delicious. We had crem brûlée for dessert. It was different from the usual preparation being topped with fruit. Very good. Service was friendly and prompt. Highly... More

We have visited Pacifica Seafood Restaurant a number of times but mostly after Church on Sunday. The food is excellent and fresh and the oysters are awesome. I like a nice Chimay Red to wash my oysters down but they also have a wonderful cabernet. If you're into seafood you must visit Pacifica while enjoying the sunny desert.

To my mind, the zzz restaurant has the freshest and the best seafood in the Coachella Valley. Have never had a bad meal here. Service is good and the restaurant is a pleasant place to be.

After 5 days of self catering at Club Intrawest, the six of us decided to splurge on a night out. The food was great and as Canadians we were surprised and happy we could take our unfinished wine home with us 😃.

I am back! And it is not even the Tuesday night wine special night...it's Friday night! Did love my delicious sea scallops, brussels sprouts, mashed potatoes, salad, Flora Springs Cabernet and creme brûlée. My friends all loved their meals and desserts too! Good service. Sat out on the upper deck. Great fun and food with friends.

We ate here with our whole extended family and found the food to be disappointing. The service was cold and our server seemed to a be in a bad mood...which considering it was Thanksgiving, it left us feeling guilty for being there...even though I'm sure she was making huge tips. The salads were lackluster and over-dressed. The turkey dinner had... More

I love the cooking, the service, and the ambiance of this restaurant. Their fish is fresh and very well prepared. If you like to dine early, they offer a sunset dinner with the same high quality selections with reduced prices. Depending on the time of year you dine there, you can take advantage of their patio seating with partially enclosed... More
