Loved this place! The food was plentiful and the complimentary glass of wine was very nice. Our servers were fantastic and very enjoyable to visit with as well. I would definitely come back if in the area.

Small seafood restaurant with attentive wait staff & good food. Very much appreciated the free wine while we waited 5" for a table! Would happily go again.

Best meal in San Francisco for us! We loved the food and the generous portions. Everything tasted fresh and yummy. The waiters were great and so happy. The space is tight though so if possible make a reservation. We didn’t have one but we lucked...in.More

The food was no match for the reviews, and my friend agreed eagerly. On the positive side, we are both 50 and feel young compared to the clientele.

We thought we had found the restaurant from our first date 30+ years ago but as the uber driver (red hummer) drove further and further out of the city into the Sunset area we doubted it. Even tho it’s been in business over 40 years...- not our first date spot. It was a great find. It’s a neighborhood fav where they serve you full glasses of white wine while you wait. Fish is the specialty and both scallops and halibut Parmesan was as hubby says “unique wine excellent”. Great spot! Highly recommend if you’d like to feel like a local.More

What a find! Amazing seafood restaurant. From the complimentary house-wine while waiting (no reservations) to the attentive waiters and great food, it was a perfect evening. Thanks Pacific Café!

You will mostly likley have a wait, put they offer free wine while you wait, red or white, with refills. Food is amazing and service was great. A definite must for seafood in San Francisco!!
