    This was my first visit, met a friend there and we were both pleased at the design and open airiness of this place; very light, relaxing and welcoming. The food selection was sufficient and organic. We ordered the yellowtail and mahi mahi, both were very fresh and seasoned and cooked perfectly. The chimichurri sauce for my mahi was great-not salty or thick as it can sometimes be, but a perfect balance and nice addition. Their sides are really good and a very generous serving. We ordered the broccolini, Brussels sprouts and kimchi fried rice (what a pleasant surprise-try it for yourself). Can’t wait to visit again!

    The service was excellent and the food fresh and tasty. They had difficulty making crispy fries for our friend, but otherwise, everything was spot on. I had the small Japanese poke bowl which was delicious. This was probably our 3rd or 4th time there, and we have not been disappointed. We sat in the comfortable, casual and well-shaded outside area.

    The food was lackluster and smaller portions that we had in Nor Cal. The service was fine but there were a couple struggles. It was humid and I was sweating. Hopefully, next time it will be like we remembered when we had good food at the Not Cal Pacific Catch restaurants

    My first visit. With reservations we were seated immediately for dinner. It was noisy inside so we decided to sit on the patio. The fish and chips were good, the cod tasted very fresh. The Wasabi Bowl (I think) my friend said was delicious. Decent beer selection. The service by Jacob was the best part. Thank you, Jacob.

    I really had high hopes for this place. Their menu was awesome to look at. Unfortunately, the execution , at least for my food that day was not very impressive. I ordered the lobster roll. The lobster was under seasoned with salt but over seasoned with dill. My fries were cold and wilted and so was my slaw. You can tell it’s been sitting out for a while. Our waitress was awesome at least. However, the guy who served us our food was kind of unprofessional. We asked him kindly if he could take a picture of us. He immediately declined our request and as he was walking away, he said he can’t as he was too busy. I was so appalled by his gesture. I would’ve understood he if he just said I’m sorry I can’t but I will let your waitress know so she can assist you. So overall, our experience that day was not very good. I’m hoping this is just a bad day for them. Not sure if I would return anytime soon.

    Disappointing. After we had dinner here some 4 weeks ago (which we enjoyed a lot), we came back and left unimpressed. We first shared the Guaca-Poke, which was nice. We then had the Fresh Catch Yellowtail and the Salmon. While the sides, especially the brussel sprouts and broccolini, were very nice, the supposed main feature of both dishes, i.e. the fish, was dry and overcooked. Service was also very slow. And then the icing on the cake was that we found a “3% Living Wage Surcharge” on the bill. I don’t appreciate such plump ways of lifting price or tips and hence deducted this from the tip. All up this poor experience will not see us come back.

    Second time coming here, the first time I thought it was good (grand opening) so I came back. I was disappointed in the food overall. I ordered a fish taco and shrimp taco with beans, chips and salsa. Tacos were a little cold and the tortilla fell apart trying to eat the tacos, overall the food was just ok. The only thing I did really like is the coconut shrimp.

    My co-worker wanted to try this place, so we booked a table. Parking was a breeze and having a reservation meant we didn't have to wait - which would not have a problem either. Our server was very good and friendly. Food was pretty good and nice portions. Bill pay was very efficient - like that it was table side as well. Would definitely go back for lunch, maybe even dinner!

    Unfortunately the service was not very good. I cannot really fault the server because she was busy serving several tables with no additional support from several Managers. Unfortunately the restaurant lacks leadership. The server lacked support and that doesn't make for a good dining experience. No busers, and no support from managers leaves a dirty and messy table. Kind of bummer because the food is actually really good.

    The menu offers a variety of interesting and different selections. The food was absolutely delicious. I was disappointed in the noise level which made it difficult to hear everyone at our table. I asked for an inside table and was escorted to the patio. I had to request that we move inside which happened but it rather tainted waht I was hoping would be a smooth dining experience, especially as we were hosting a group of VIPs. The service was disappointing as once we ordered and received our meals we did not see our server again. We would have ordered drinks. The ambience needs work as it appears rather bland which is out of sync with the delicious and beautifully prepared and plated food. Seriously, trays??? The dining rooms is confused - is it trying to appear like a cafeteria, fast food restaurant or dining room? In spite of the appearance of the restaurant and the rather disappointing service, I would dine there again

    Another excellent dinner at Pacific Catch. We had a bit of a snag trying to substitute the Mac Salad for fries. Our waitress told us "the chef doesn't do substitutions". What? When it is easily substituted why not? We ended up getting what we wanted for a $1 charge. That was silly, but fine. And who is this chef that says what a diner can and can't have? He's a freaking Corporate Chef. If he wants to have that kind of say - open your own restaurant and see how long you keep it open.
