My guy and I came out to this restaurant many times over the past year and a half, and have been consistently impressed with both the service and the extremely fresh seafood. We have had fun tasting 80 to 90% of the menu. I am partial to the pan fried oysters, and the duck Carnitas. The decor in the restaurant... More

We went for happy hour because of the mixed reviews here. Thought we could stay for dinner if we liked. We didn't. The bartender described the house white (blend) as tasting like an unoaked Chardonnay. It more closely resembled a peach wine cooler. There were only a few items on the HH menu. We each had a salad which was... More

Went there for dinner finding choices in Pacific City extremely limited. Should have known we were in trouble when it was empty and they asked us if we had a reservation. Service was extremely slow and salads were poor and not as described at all (how does one screw up a salad?). Crabcakes were good, but plate with oysters, shrimp... More

We went with some friends to this darling restaurant. When we walked in we were surprised to see the white table cloths and lovely decor. Didn't expect to see that in casual Pacific CIty. We had reservations and I would recommend that for a weekend. It did seem to fill up. One reason could be that the weather was beautiful... More

My wife and i dined here and we were less than impressed. Food took over an hour to come out, steak and fish were over cooked, and speakers were blown above us. We were ready for a five star dinner based on reviews. We got 4 star service and 1 star food. Hearing the kitchen cooks say "we have a... More

Came here based on Tripadvisor reports. Pacific City is a bit sleepy and we were not sure what to expect, but this was great. Service was excellent as was advice from the owner on wine - happy for us to have a sample before committing to a bottle. All the food was freshly cooked to order and was pretty much... More

We had a family of 7 and an 18mo in our party and they were wonderfully accommodating. Everything we ordered was wonderful and the service excellent. The owner came out and gave the baby a stuffed animal. The ambiance and view out the back of the restaurant were lovely. Overall great experience! We all loved it.

The restaurant is nicely decorated and very clean. The bar is very nice, too. The prices for the meals are a little expensive but, when it is a special occasion and you want a delicious meal, this is the place. It is connected to a motel on Brooten Rd. and is hard to tell it is a restaurant. The whole... More

For the sleepy beach town of Pacific City, this place serves up dishes that one would be more inclined to find in big cities. Many menu items to choose from. Love the tomato soup in the homemade puff pastry. Paired with a good wine, you should not leave here dissatisfied!

Asian bouillabaisse was probably the best soup I've ever eaten. Crab cakes were magnificent. Our server was wonderful fun and we regret we didn't get her name. The chef was nice, the owner was nice, even the wine distributors were nice. Amazing food. Great atmosphere. 10/10 would recommend.
