“Great Food, Value and Service”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

After researching dinner options on for a late Saturday night meal, we found Pacific Catch. And while the menu isn't vast, these chefs are doing amazing things with a key set of ingredients. The coconut shrimp - wow! The tacos (shrimp, cod, mahi)- yum! And the fish and chips - delish! Had we had another day in the city, we would have made a second trip. The service was attentive, pleasant and helpful. Don't let the smaller capacity deter you, its worth the wait.

“In town for the America's Cup? Another vote for excellence”
Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

Visiting San Francisco for the America's Cup, and being from Norfork Virginia which has great seafood restaurants, I was skeptical about going to a fish restaurant Labor Day. However, I couldn't pass this restaurant as it was so highly rated and I got there early enough to get a seat with little waiting. i sat outside on Chestnut Street and watch the passersby, a treat in itself. I had the catch of the day, a nicely spiced trout, and the dessert that was told was the staff favorite. Great experience.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

We decided to try Pacific Catch after reading reviews on Tripadvisor and we're really pleased we did. It's so teeny tiny in there but obviously very popular as people don't seem to mind queuing. We sat at the bar, watching the chefs hard at work and chatting to our really friendly server. We didn't want a huge meal so ordered a few starters and had some wine (Pinot was very good). At the recommendation of our server we had Original Poke (raw tuna in a soy sauce and five spice marinade served with wonton crisps) which was absolutely delicious. My husband is normally a bit of a wimp with this sort of food but he loved it. We also had coconut shrimp, sweet potato fries and Korean ribs, all of which were fantastic. All in all we had a superb evening. Would highly recommend especially if you're staying in the Marina District.

“Great seafood, so well spiced”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

We always leave this place thinking about when we can return! Sweet potato fries are mandatory, best fries I've ever had. Try to taste all the tacos! They use spices very well and the fish is so fresh. Place is small but worth a wait. Excellent value. Is a few blocks from Marina Green.

“Best. Salad. Ever.”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

For an easy & budget friendly dinner, this was amazing!! We'd just arrived in San Fran and arrived about 8pm on a Tuesday...it was busy but we were seated right away, admittedly right at the back at the bar - not the best seats, but it didn't matter once we started eating!! Ordered a bottle of wine (happened to be half price on tuesdays) tacos to start, then I had the Sashimi-grade Ahi Salad while my husband had the fish & spicy fries...EVERYTHING was utterly delicious!!! One of the best salads I have ever had, and the fish & chips were equally fantastic...we were so delighted with the food and amazed it came to less than $70 with tip. Service was quick and friendly. Serious this place is awesome and we will be back. YUM YUM YUM.
