“Lunch outside is a must!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2010

Really a pleasant start to our time in Del Mar. Hotel concierge recommended and we were really pleased with everything that we tried (predominately the seafood dishes). Nice sitting up top overlooking Del Mar. Every place has heaters so you can enjoy even if cool outside.

“The Early Seating menu can't be beat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2010

All the positve reviews are accurate. The service is wonderful, the food is really good, and the ocean view is great. Moreover, the early seating menu, with 2 courses for $21.75, is a real bargain. It also seemed to me that their rewards program was a really good deal for people who eat there regularly.

“PACIFICA IS ONE OF THE BEST DINING OPTIONS IN DEL MAR”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2010

My family enjoyed a terrific time here. The service was great, they were accomodating even with our young daughter. We had 3 adult meals, prawns, sea bass, and filet mignon. Everything was delicious. Coming from Las Vegas where there are great restaurants, you can tell which ones are interested in a great meal - not just presentation. Pacifica service and the chef were top notch.

“Food and Service that Match Spectacular Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2010

Recently had dinner with a large group and everything was top notch. A restaurant (such as George's) could make it with such a location alone. Pacifica kicks it up a notch with outstanding food and service. Everyone had nothing but raves about their meals and we had 15 people, ordering most of the menu. Attentive and professional service. Highly recommended.

“Great location, great food--make a reservation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2010

Pacifica is justly popular and therefore very busy. Locals gather after work and mix with tourists in the bar. The food is excellent and many locals told us that "Pacifica is the best in town." I thought several other places had equally good food but there is no doubt that this is THE gathering spot. If you don't have reservations, expect to wait.
