We ordered sea bass which we often had before! The waiter asked
If we wanted the regular which we always had before! Or the bigger sea bass, he confused 3 of us and we ordered the bigger one which was totally unnecessary.
We were not being cheap but it was definitely too much!
One gentleman asked for a larger glass which was not given to him!
I found Attitude to be a problem from the beginning,

we went as a belated Father's day dinner. the weather was too warm (110 degrees!!) to eat outside, but some people chose this . there are misters outdoors. the choices were all interesting, and creative. We loved every appetizer we ordered, and ate all the beautifully presented fish dishes, along with out dessert. We will be back.

Very expensive and overall we found the food to be good but not great. We had the baked scallops for an appetizer and could hardly find the scallop. We also had the baked oysters which were good. One dish we had was the special of the day which was cod in a sauce which I can't remember what it was as it was just ok and not very memorable. The ahi dish was very good, the swordfish was a bit dry and the sea bass was very good. Side dishes were additional at $6 each which we did not have. My son had the key lime tart for dessert which we all shared and it was very good. We did not leave full as the portions are only 7 oz. of fish with not much else on the dish. Not sure if we would return.

Pacifica has never let me down yet. I always love their food and the service is excellent! Love the sea bass, ahi and salmon. I prefer to sit outside when it's not sweltering out there, but inside is great too. It's a great place to go for a special occasion! I highly recommend!

Pacifica is without doubt the best seafood restaurant in the desert. Not only is the food delicious, but it is prepared and delivered with amazing consistency. The calimari is always cooked perfectly, the soups and salads are tasty, and the honey-glazed salmon and the miso-soy glazed, sea bass are wonderful entrees. For lunch there is nothing better anywhere than their Crab Louie salad. Tuesday's are half price wine nights and their sunset dinners are a tremendous value. The recent expansion of the kitchen not only makes the skilled cooks happy but it enables Pacifica to turn out consistently excellent meals no matter how busy the restaurant is. Every trip to the desert we visit Pacifica two or three times. Dave and his outstanding kitchen and wait staff can always be counted on to produce a memorable meal that never disappoints. If you haven't experienced Pacifica yet, make sure you dine there on your next trip.

Had to ask for lemons 3x for our water before receiving. Was served bread that was hard as rock. Our waiter was busy attending to a large table, therefore forgot about us. We are regulars, think it was an off night, we will be back.

Love Pacifica! Food, atmosphere, service are always fabulous. Everything's great here--this time we went for some clam chowder (best I've ever had), mussels, shrimp cocktail and oysters. But I always love doing a half-portion entree, too--especially the sugar spice salmon or short rib. And the wine list is awesome!

You need to check with Pacifica about table reservations, Your confirmation said twice no reservations excepted for inside or outside dining. When we arrived and asked for 2 tables nobody was sitting at, we were told they were reserved and were seated in the middle of the room. Pacifica said they always take requests but not guaranteed.

We had a nice evening. The food wasn't as fabulous as I expected. Their desserts were definitely above average, and the drinks were very good. For my particular palate, I don't care to have my foods mixed together. I ordered halibut, which was cooked to my liking; however, it was served on a bed of mediocre wild rice with cranberry - not great with the halibut. We also ordered lobster tails and found them to be very tough.
The restaurant itself was great, the staff was awesome, but the entrees were not too terribly special

The food was good, but nothing special. I ordered the short ribs. It was a little mushy but flavorful. It needed more sauce, but I could've fixed that. My friend ordered the catfish. It was a little dry but flavorful.

Thanks to Pacifica, I had a wonderful 31st birthday. Our waiter was very attentive and even brought us a birthday dessert - much appreciated! Our food (baked oysters, steak, and simply grilled fish) was absolutely delicious. I was worried about what I might be able to eat as I'm 7 months pregnant and my appetite has not been great - but I ate everything on my plate for the first time in months! Thank you!
