Pacific Catch Mountain View Ratings and Reviews
Wouldn't recommend. Salad with taco's was not complete or dressed. Side order or broccoli did not arrive. Never offered a chance to order drinks. Was talked out of my entree by the waiter with another suggestion which was so spicy it was inedible. Waiter didn't offer to clear the plates from the starter before trying to dump the the entrees on the table - until we told him to. All in all, crappy service. It wasn't even that busy. Pretty subdued atmosphere for a Saturday night. In retrospect it was far too easy to get a table for 6 at short notice on a Saturday, and now I know why.
We have been to Pacific Catch many times before and enjoyed it very much. But, tonight's food and service were mediocre at best. Our waiter was forgetful and seemed preoccupied. We did not receive the edamame and cracker appetizer and our drinks were very slow to arrive. When we asked for lemons from our water for a second time, the waiter presented them on toothpicks still in plastic wrappers and laid them on the table! Both my dining partner and I had a fresh fish special. My salmon was overcooked and paired with an undercooked vegetable ragout. The grilled corn came without the butter and cheese as described. Overall, a very disappointing dinner.
Once again, the experience here varies greatly time to time. First off, a couple of the servers here are just horrible. Surely management knows who they are. But then again, one of the managers is horrible, also. On the other hand, some of the servers do a fine job, although they all try their hardest to upsell the drinks (which are generally poorly made, mostly syrup in the specialty cocktails). The food, by and large, is good. The bowls are the best values, but sometimes the specials are good, too. Overall, it's a fun place to go, but if you have an important dinner/lunch date (business or social), I won't go here because you could end up with a poor experience.
The taste and quality of the food was great. It wasn't very busy and we got to the restaurant at 11:40, we ordered at 11:45 and it took until about 12:15 for food to come. We asked for our appetizer to come before lunch and it came with lunch. One of the orders was wrong but we didn't want to wait another 30 minutes for the correct food to come. So... food was great but attention to detail sucked. It was also extremely noisy so conversation was difficult.
My husband and I have been here 3 times in the last 8 months and my impressions are the same - the menu promises a lot but the execution is only fair. My fish is generally overcooked a bit. The sauces are just okay, nothing remarkable. The waiters try to upsell. I like the ambience better than the Fish Market, but the food quality, preparation and taste of the dishes is far superior at Fish Market. This visit I had Ginger and Garlic Salmon - the risotto was mushy, and took up most of the dish, the eggplant was also mushy and not too tasty and the salmon was overcooked. This place is convenient, and the dining area is fun and vibrant, but the chef needs to do better with the fish dishes.
We really enjoyed this tasty, fresh seafood restaurant. We'll definitely return! It was "wild salmon run" season during our visit. The poke trio was delightful, and both the grilled salmon with masa and the BBQ salmon were succulent and flavorful -- perfect, really. The salmon chowder was also yummy according to my husband. The menu has quite a few playful dishes with interesting combinations of flavors. I think the chefs actually have fun planning the dishes, but those we had worked very well.
I sense that the wait staff may be a little overworked, but they are cheerful and kind. I liked our server. She was no-nonsense, friendly and efficient.
The food was not cooked properly my husband ordered the fish and chips and the French fries were not evencoojed through!! My daughter ordered one of the seasonal specials the eggplant was over cooked and very mushy. Inedible!!! I would not recommend this restaurant nor would I go there again!!! Very disappointed!!
I had lunch outside on the patio and really enjoyed it. I had the fish tacos and they tasted very fresh, with just enough spice. I felt the value for the price was quite good. Service was great and I appreciated the quiet atmosphere, where I could actually hear the conversation.
I've been to Pacific Catch restaurants before but this looked to be the most comfortable and spacious. we had a great time on the patio - our fried sashimi appetizer was lovely -- and my oysters cooked perfectly. the crab and avocado salad was delicious...topped off with a bottle of wine and the malasadas dessert - it made for a terrific luncheon. our server was friendly and helpful. we both thought we should bring our group of gals here for a dinner sometime soon!
Unfortunately the noise level and service were a problem on this visit. Eventhough I asked for seating away from the bar they put us near the bar and it was very loud and our waiter dissapeared . We resorted to flagging down waiters as they came by. Not a good experience.
It had very good food and I would go back there again. I got the fish tacos which were a bit too spicy for me and the other guest that was with me and had them. The other guest with us had the steak rice bowl but our waitress so kindly suggested she might want to do half rice and half lettuce because all the rice could get a bit too filling but just a suggestion. Our guest that ordered that did do the half rice and half lettuce and liked it that way very much. Next time I think I would order the steak rice bowl with half lettuce. That looked very good.
We were extremely disappointed with the waiter and bar service. Our party ordered 3 drinks that called for dark rum, when the drinks arrived they didn't have them. We questioned our server and said they drinks were not right. He then informed us they were out of dark rum. We should have been told that before the drinks arrived or at least given another drink. Our server also forgot to put in one of our orders.
Went on Father's Day. The restaurant was out of salmon, crab, and potatoes for French fries. When they substituted sweet potato fries for regular fries (because they ran out of regular fries), they added the additional fee for the sweet potato fries. When I asked about this, the management wouldn't take the fee off the bill. It's a small amount, but it says a lot about how this place is managed.
