Our waiter was very attentive and spoke English very well. The chef, Wolf, came to our table twice to see if everything was okay. The food was delicious as it... More

We found this place densely packed with tables and so noisy that a good conversation over dinner was impossible to keep going. Menu offers the typical southern California choice, and the fish dishes we had were overcooked, for sure not freshly prepared. Quite pricy for that.

Back yesterday at Pacifica after a two-year absence and all was as it should be. This long-running Del Mar favorite never ceases to satisfy with good food, excellent service and a great wine list. Bravo.

Packed and no wonder - great atmosphere, delicious food and a really great ambience - yes it's expensive but as the L'Oréal advert says 'you're worth it'. Went Saturday night and booking essential Highly recommended

We met old friends at Del Mar, found Pacifica but walked a considerable distance to the restaurant from the parking garage. That being said, upon entering this place it was expansive and well designed. Although busy the orders came in a timely fashion. The luncheon was presented well and the food was very very good. I had a club sandwich... More

Hey Kipp My wife and I have enjoyed several Pacifica locations and often bring our Clients because we know the food will be GOOD and priced right. Several months ago we asked the Staff about the changes and they were positive and Yes, we found the meals were different but still very good. The Breeze is our perfect stop on... More
