Pacific Catch Mountain View Ratings and Reviews
It has been my very favorite local restaurant - We go there for special occasions as well as just going out for dinner. This time my husband ordered his usual meal – Korean bowl. Unfortunately it was drenched with the sauce. This has happened one time before. For some reason it seemed extra cloyingly sweet, and I thought the sauce was even concentrated. Unfortunately our server didn't check in with us until we were about 75% done with our meal. She apologized and offered my husband more rice. I usually get a Japanese bowl. But this time I opted for the special – chirashi with three kinds of poke. The server was very accommodating and allowed me to change to half brown rice and half salad greens. It was good but I didn't feel that the flavors and ingredients sparkled like in a Japanese people. Probably because the Poke were a mix of ingredients. I'm hoping this was an "off" night. We have made a mental note to ask for sauces on the side on our next visit.
The food is generally very good here. I had one of their seasonal special "Celebrating Pacific Crab" petrale sole with dungeness crab. It was fresh, tasty and flavorful, and just the right combo of both. The broccolini was done to perfection, crispy and not over cooked. The service was excellent. If you get a chance to go, try this entree before March 7th. You'll love it too!
Crazy Valentines Day, however, the Hostess needs to recognize guests when they arrive vs. answer the phone (waited there 10 minutes without recognition). The food choices were limited, but what was chosen was very good. Will try it again on a less crazy evening.
Young lady at front reception was a bit unprofessional. I requested happy hour menu & she looked shocked & disgust, made my wife & I feel very uncomfortable & unwelcome. Other than that, food & service were excellent. OpenTable made it easy to reserve table for us.
Disappointed in the meal.. We went for the crab week, and ordered the sole and crab combo that was highly recommended by the waiter. The sole was delicious but rather a small portion. The crab meat was spooned on top of the sole, maybe a tablespoon's worth. There was a huge clump of mashed potatoes and some veggies. For $27, we could have eaten much better elsewhere. They compensated us by giving us one $7 dessert. Nice gesture, but they should have comp'ed us one entree to be fair.
Will not be returning any time soon.
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.
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 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.
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.
