Pacifica Seafood Restaurant has a welcoming atmosphere and service was attentive and helpful. The food was very good, and portions were generous. I had the grilled swordfish with chipolte corn salsa which was excellent. Other diners had the lobster tails and halibut special, which were also very good. Side dishes were excellent, especially the brussel sprouts. The only disappointment was the iceberg wedge salad which lacked originality and was very bland. The caesar salad on the other hand, was quite good. Not the best I've had, but pleasing. A nice touch is that entrees are available at either full or half portions, which is a welcome option for those with smaller appetites. All in all, Pacifica Seafood Restaurant is a very good restaurant, and the best fish we've had in the desert. Prices are reasonable, food presentation is nice, and the service very good. We look forward to coming back on our next visit to the desert communities.

We celebrated birthdays...seafood lovers enjoyed the perfectly cooked mussels as appetizers that we ordered more. My salmon was perfectly cooked as well after learning to tell the waiter my preference. The steak-loving hubby of my friend enjoyed his steak. We enjoyed the leisurely dinner at a far corner so conversations wouldn't be disruptive. What more can one ask? We didn't have to -- the birthday cake came with candles.

Five of us had dinner, everything we ordered was just great. Wait staff was very helpful and efficient. Drinks were good. We had two appetizers, both superb. The dinners were as well, and I wish I'd been able to have dessert. Maybe next trip.

Good thru Labor Day: Happy hour 3 - 9:30 p.m. daily at the bar area. Great happy hour menu. We like to order the baked scallops, salmon brochette, and shrimp scampi. Goes well w/ a glass of sauvignon blanc at only $5/glass. Service is fast and friendly too.

Always fresh and interesting menu. Favorite lunch item is their Dungenous Crab Louie salad. Dinner has many fish and seafood items, always good. Good atmosphere, expecially dining outside overlooking El Paseo Dr.
