    Food has really gone downhill since this restaurant opened. Last night’s poke was like the bottom of the barrel. Hardly any big chunks of fish and WAY too many onions. Service has also fallen off. Seems like high turnover in servers and managers. It’s like the whole place changed!

    Unfortunately this is the third time I've dined there and each time it's gotten worse on food quality and service. They seemd to be very disorganized front and back of house. They forgot key items of the dish such as dressing and then there were bugs in the food. They didn't seem to care to fix the issues right away. Very disappointed.

    I have dined at Pacific Catch five or six times since they opened so this is a compsite review. Excellent food. I especially recommend the calamari and the Baja fish tacos. Service is friendly and competant. Ambience is good but not exceptional. The place gets loud when it gets to >50% capacity. I would give 4.5 stars if that were an option. They are not quite to 5 stars yet. Biggest complaint is that the tabletops are always sticky. The servers apologize but claim that the only cleaner that they are allowed to use doesn't get the job done. Also, flour tortillas should be an option for the tacos. All things considered, an excellent operation for a recent startup franchise. Give it a try, order the Baja fish tacos, and you will go home happy.

    Food was average, abundant but quality or preparation had nothing to stand out. Water was ambient/warm, the place seems to large for the amount of personnel they have. There was a sense of being too busy and tired.

    Food was good. They offer a nice selection of beers and wines, plus a full bar. Service was good. Ambiance was mixed.. young hip crowd mixed with families with baby strollers. To be expected at a mall I guess. On the patio, we had to ask to move to another table as seats were packed WAY too close to be comfortable and social distanced!

    Hadn't been since they opened. Great food. Service was a bit spotty especially since it was quite empty. Unfortunate part was KIDS. Several tables with parents on their phones not watching their 5 kids at one table and 2 at the other. Very distracting. If kids can't behave, please do us a favor and leave them at home.

    This was for a team dinner. Three of us, and one was a pescatarian. Each of us ordered something different - fish burger, hawaaiin plate, korean plate. My team kept saying what a great job I did with picking the restaurant! The only issue was I had an allergic reaction to my food. I am not sure what caused it as I have no food allergies except mild reaction to nuts. It was not a mild reaction. Overall, would come back!

    Reserved outdoor booth was ready when we arrived. Server seemed a little busy, forgetting things like bringing water, but that can happen. Sides with the Sea Bass entree arrived cold, had to request reheating, but they provided another order of the sides hot. Ordered half a bottle of a wine, didnt arrive in a half bottle to be opened at the table, as it does in lots of restaurants, but in a caraffe that seemed like enough for about 1 1/2 glasses. Fish was done well. Still like their menu, Brussels sprouts were excellent, Salmon done nicely.
