I liked this place and would love to have a restaurant like this close to were I live. Efficient and friendly attitude from the staff and some really good food. I had never tried Hawaian "poke" before and really liked it, I will try my hands on making it myself back home.

I had lunch here with my mother, and it was fantastic. We had the trio of poki, I will have this every time I go back. I had the California Roll Salad, and my mother had the special Salmon Salad, both were very good. Very friendly service, I can't wait to go back.

The food was amazing and reasonably prices. This restaurant is very small, you will have to wait for a table, but it is worth the wait. Lots of locals coming in and getting take out. Food was original and fresh, fresh, fresh!

Went to the 9th Ave location near Golden Gate Park. Tough place to find parking (10-15 min walk from the park) but well worth it. All of the dishes ordered in our party of 7 looked fantastic. Very fresh which was evident with the Poke that I ordered. Sounds like this location has more tables and space than the one... More

The food was delicious. A lot of it was fresh. The service was ok. Place is small though. After you eat enjoy the scenery. Overall pretty good.

Stopped in for happy hour and it did not disappoint. Poke, tacos and ribs were fantastic. We left full and satisfied for $25.

What a tiny gem in the bustling city. We were staying at the Chelsea Inn a block away and I quickly search TA for restaurants in the area and this one popped up. It was Saturday night, and there was a lot of people hustling about, but we found this little gem. It was so small we almost went to... More

After checking in on a Monday night, we took a stroll down to Chestnut and walked all of the available restaurants. After looking at the menus of each one and assessing the cost, we decided to step into Pacific Catch. We were glad we did. The servers knew that it would be awhile before we would be seated, so they... More

Tripadvisor definitely brought us to the right place when we were cold and hungry at 9pm. It's a pretty small restaurant with only a few tables, but the service staff were highly efficient. We had the fish and chips, which we regretted ordering only 3 pieces as it was absolutely fantastic! The batter was perfect - not too greasy yet... More
