The waitress was awesome. I didn't rate this a 5 because the size of the place leaves some desires unfulfilled.

Was in the area and it was right there. I had done some research prior to going, for restaurants in the area. I came upon this one (9th Ave location) on my walk, and stopped in for lunch.

This was our favorite restaurant in SF. It's in Cow Hollow; very cute neighborhood. The food here is very fresh, absolutely delicious, and reasonably priced. Favorites for us were the fish tacos and fried oysters.

This place rocks! We almost made a big mistake and went somewhere there was no wait. The restaurant is very small. We waited and it was worth it. The staff worked as a team. They were polite, friendly, and efficient. We had Hawaiian pulled pork sliders as an appetizer and they were delicious. I had a seared Tuna on a... More

Dear Trip-Advisor, How can I give a 6 or 7 star rating to a restaurant. Pacific catch on Chestnut deserves it!!! Were to start. Small restaurant. Cosy athmosphere. Great choices. Our recommendations: 1) Cabo Calamari: I have never, really never tasted such great calamari. The combination with lemon and chili is just awesome. 2) Hawaiian Poke Trio: Three types of... More

We both had the tuna bowls. They were so fresh and so unique with a tasty combination of marinated tuna, brown... More

After a long, wet morning driving around Marin and San Francisco, we arrived at Pacific Catch for a very late lunch. We were tired, wet, and weary so were very happy to have stumbled upon this place. We immediately found the small, cafe style restaurant warm and cozy, the waitress greeting us with a cheerful smile and offering us the... More

Glad we changed our plans and headed down to Pacific Catch. Great tacos and a good location to eat outside and people watch. It's a casual restaurant that offers thoughtful food and excellent service. Everything was really fresh. Will come back if I ever make it back to San Fran.

Ahi tuna wasabi bowl was fresh, delicious, and a huge portion. I could only finish half. My husband had a mixed fried seafood platter which he said was better then the fried fish he had at Cliff House and Woodhouse Fish Co. Service was lightening fast but we weren't rushed. Only a few tables and it was raining so the... More
