Pacific Catch Mountain View Ratings and Reviews

our party of 4 was easily accommodated and had a table ready at the time of reservation. Two of our group had the salmon, another had the sole and crab combination, and I had the swordfish. Everyone said their fish was well cooked and tasty. There was a good variety of vegetables to accompany the entree. Service was good too.

On arrival I was ignored for a short time then, being five minutes early for our table, told to wait with no offer of seating. The restaurant had about 4 tables occupied of about 30 total!
Eventually our server came and escorted us to our table. She was courteous, helpful and efficient; a welcome contrast to the reception.
Great food, pity about the Front Desk.

Despite being a busy night (new year's eve), service was friendly and you could still carry on a conversation without shouting. My salmon rice bowl was a good sized portion and tasty, and the calamari was a table favorite.

A small group of us have lunch together every day at work and always go out for special occassions - such as our Annual Christmas Lunch. This year we chose Pacific Catch and really enjoyed ourselves. Our server, Tony was very cordial and played along as well as possible with our forever wise cracking group member. We did get him to laugh - not sure if it was with us or at us though...we are crazy! Service was great, proces were extremely good and the food came quickly and was perfect looking and even better tasting! They also receive a giant PLUS for allowing seperate checks for each!!Thank you Pacific Catch - we will be back!

We waited about 45 mins before finally getting our food. Server told us a few times that the food was coming up soon; so did the manager. Finally the manager said the food was coming up, and he'd comp the meal, which it finally did, and he did comp it, but it wasn't worth the wait. But it was free... We've come here many times before. Never had a wait this bad.

Went on a Thu night. The swordfish tasted like steak- my dinner mate also ordered it and had the same reaction. Calamari was good. The "creme brûlée" was literally pudding with a burnt top. So basically the dishes were not what we expected. Service was spotty- attentiveness followed by long waits to get someone's attention. It wasn't a great experience. I've eaten apps at the bar before and that was fine.

We've been here many times. Always appreciate the complementary sparkling water and early snack. The miso glazed cod was absolutely delicious, with nice tempura veggies, spinach and rice. I'd have that dish again!

We ordered the fish of the day (Black Cod). It was mediocre at best, served on a bed of soggy brown rice and extremely salty. Very disappointing meal. If you go to this restaurant, stick with the fish tacos and/or fish and chips. Paying up for a nicer entree was not even remotely worth it.

Our server, who was also working as host, was superb. She was knowledgeable about ingredients of dishes - important for me as I have a food allergy - and both prompt and courteous with food and drink delivery. Thanks to her.

Pricey for what you get. Not good for date-night. Went at 6pm on a Friday - loud, not romantic if that's what you want. Portions are big enough. Didn't order any soups/salads/desserts so can't comment on those. The food is ok - not complaining, but I've had MUCH better seafood. Will definitely seek out better places to eat fresh fish.

Have been meaning to check out the place with my family. Excellent restaurant, great service, excellent food from fresh local ingredients and very fresh seafood. Ordered from the Mexican specials for the month - the seafood stew and swordfish + the steak from the main menu. Started with grilled artichoke and two of the Mexican appetizer specials - Shrimp Sopes and Ceviche. Will be back again.

Not as good as usual tonight. Host seemed bored, food was a little bland, server was friendly, but not detailed. Note to restaurant ... Some customers choose to sit in the bar area to avoid other people's noisy children. The bar was completely empty when we arrived, but a table of 6 (with 2 small kids) was seated just across from us after our food arrived which really ruined the bar atmosphere.

I love Pacific Catch. The food is always great. This was our first experience at the Mt. View restaurant. For some reason, our waiter was MIA. He took our order, mine came out wrong, but the expediter handled it quite fast and efficiently. Our waiter never came to check on us once! No exaggeration. I needed a tea refill, but we couldn't even flag him down. He showed up at the very end and asked about dessert and gave us our bill. Wish I could have paid attention to his name. I would still go back for the food. And give them another chance on service.

I have eaten at Pacific Catch several times. On this occasion I was meeting up with a friend from out of town. We both love fish. Unfortunately, I ordered the Mexican Pulled Pork Sandwich, which was way too hot for my taste. I only ate one-half of the sandwich and was still hungry when the dessert menu arrived. I actually think I burned he inside of my throat, as I've been sore and coughing ever since I ate the sandwish. My friend ordered the fish tacos (one with prawns and the second with mahi-mahi) and she was pleased (at least that's what she told me). The pineapple upside down cake for dessert was great. The service was very good and I will be back!

Hot water for hot tea comes in a big teapot but by the time I got to my second cup the water had cooled. Also - had to ask for a teaspoon to stir my tea - maybe bring it automatically with any order for hot beverage? Otherwise, food, service and ambience was great.

Good place to go with family and friends. Nice comfortable booths. Our food took awhile and they took $15 off the bill since it was late and the manager even came out to apologize. I had the fish and "chips", which was delicious Alaskan cod - very light, perfectly battered and sweet potato fries. Could have used a bit more seasoning, but it was good. My Aunt had the tacos and demolished them. We shared the cheesecake egg roll for dessert - to DIE.

Usually a decent place for a meal, but all too often the front desk does not accomodate reasonable requests regarding where to be seated. Also, the waiters seemed burned out much of the time, even when not busy. The food is ok, although the prices keep creeping up beyond the acceptable level for the quality given.
I think they are getting a bit complacent with service, food and price point.

We really liked our waiter selection of beverages and booth. We wanted Seafood and there wasn't much to choose from that was not spicy. We could not even get regular -non jalapeño tartar sauce, or even cocktail sauce. Maybe better for happy hour with friends who can take the heat

The food was disappointing. The drinks were too sweet. The soup had so much lime juice in it, i almost couldn't eat it. The salmon was not at all appetizing. The swordfish was thin and the fried rice was tasteless. the free dessert sounded interesting, but the brownie was dry and inedible. The service was great, and our server was charming. that made the extra star for me.

The wild salmon was tasteless and chewy. When I told the waiter he told the chef who supposedly said "no one else complained." We are regulars and never complain, so I think the meal should have been credited. Not sure I'm returning.

I booked this restaurant because I had a $20 Open Table coupon. The food was better than anticipated. I had the grilled salmon which was very good. My husband had the sole which he liked a lot. He also had the soup which he really liked. We shared the "egg roll" with cheesecake filling with a scoop of vanilla ice cream - fantastic! My only complaint is that our server rushed us through the meal. The soup and entrees came out quickly. Given it was a Saturday night on a holiday weekend (despite that we had an early reservation) the waiter rushed us through our dinner. I would go back to this restaurant again.

My wife (who has a gluten allergy), my brother-in-law and I had dinner at Pacific Catch on a Friday night. The place was pretty crowded, but with reservations we were able to get right in. We each ordered our own appetizers and an entree.
We ordered the tuna and crab poke, the bay scallop poke (a special that night), and the rock shrimp special for appetizers. The rock shrimp and bay scallops (which were gluten free) were great. However, the tuna and crab poke (also gluten free) was disappointing. There seemed to be mayonnaise mixed in which just left the dish with a bad texture and masked the freshness of the fish.
For dinner, my wife got the green curry shrimp bowl, which was okay but spicier than expected and the shrimp were small and overcooked. My brother-in-law had the fish tacos which were solid. I had the mixed fish and chips plate, which was okay but was way too much fried food on one plate (probably my fault for ordering that dish and being surprised it was all fried!)
Overall, it was a good experience in a good location for a decent price.

Aas usual, the seafood is fresh and very tasty. Service always exceptional
On this visit, my only complaint was that the size of my Fish and Chips was a lot smaller than on past visits, in fact, the 3 Cod pieces were all in the shape of half a circle ..... Wuz up with dat ?
