“Fabulous food, good value and a great show...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

We went to Pacific Catch on the evening we arrived in San Francisco. We were looking for something that was good value and near our motel. We chose it on the basis of Trip Advisor reviews. What a fabulous place. We had to wait about half an hour to get a seat but they took our names and we had a drink next door whilst waiting. We chose to sit at the counter which turned out to be great because we were able to watch the team work of the kitchen staff in preparing the food - there is nowhere for them to hide anything, it's all there for the customer to see and watch. The food was prepared freshly and quickly and tasted simply define. We had the Wild Salmon Club Sandwich - who would have thought flame grilled salmon, bacon, avocado and lettuce would work but it really did. The portions were a good size and the price really good value. Highly recommended.

“Best find all week in SF”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

This place was an unexpected gem. Restaurant is smallish but the location (Marina District), selection, food, and service were all excellent. Would definitely go back here. Highly recommend the tacos especially the Pacific steak. The poke was also delicious.

“Great meal and reasonable pricing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Nice meal in casual atmosphere. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. We had a large group of 9 and we were able to sit at one table with a reservation made the same day. We ate at 9th street location and parking was rough. There was a small lot but no spaces available. We parked nearby in the park after looking for street parking.

“So fresh! So tasty! So awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

So this was our first experience with the Pacific Catch group and the smaller branch in Chestnut St took some finding but was so worth it! We had a lunch of BBQ salmon tacos and Japanese rice bowl. Each bite was out of this world. Service was good and friendly, very relaxed vibe. Was so good that we went back to the Golden Gate Park branch for lunch the next day! Again was great but we really loved the salmon tacos at Chestnut branch. Will go out of our way to go back again.
