Sea Food Star

I saw this place on channel 9?s restaurant show and had to give it a try. To my delight it?s fantastic. I really don?t use that term lightly. I have had some of the best dinners I can remember here. The place is small. 8 tables and 2 counter seats. The food is best described as simple/basic and just plain excellent. You won?t find any of the usual San Francisco food scene mumbo jumbo here. No foam, no cold carrot soup, and no weird spices in your dessert. The sea food is really the shining star at Cajun Pacific? makes sense! I suggest the New Orleans BBQ shrimp, crab cakes, any fish dish he has. Ono and Tombo Tuna really stand out. Some other favorites are the andouille sausage corn dogs, crawfish beignets, and some random stuff too. Salt house makes a great roasted lamb dish? Cajun Pacific?s is better! Poke?amazing!!!! All this at VERY reasonable prices. Wine and beer selections avail. Another great thing about this place is the menu changes weekly, they e-mail to you if you are on the list and also post it on their web site. Sometimes there are special nights where they feature crab and even fresh Hawaiian fish. The chef is supported by an assistant and a wait person. Here?s the ""catch."" CP is only open Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. Sometimes not even those nights. (They do a lot of private gigs on and off site.) Make a reservation, again it?s a small place and they sell out. The last thing I would mention because it did take some getting used to. Don?t be in a rush. If you are the late for the theater type or just impatient this might not be the place for you, your loss of course. The chef makes everything TO ORDER. It takes a while sometimes but it?s WELL worth it. I?m sorry but I?m hooked!

Nice cajun in the city

While the food is not quite as good as the real deal in NO, it is probably the best you'll find in the Bay Area. The service is slow and the place a bit tight and cozy, but this is pretty typical of a classic New Orleans hole-in-the-wall. Show up with the right (laid-back) attitude, and you're sure to enjoy yourself. The only thing missing is some real NO beer (e.g. Dixie, Abita)...

Horrible Service, Mediocre Food

How long would you wait for a sandwitch? I placed a to-go order for two po'boys and an order of fries. I was told a wait of about 15min. I ended up waiting 30min. The restaruant was not busy, in fact only four tables out of their six were actually occupied. While we were waiting for our order to even be started, we witnesses that friends of an employee of the restaruant were able to place their order and recieve their food before ours had even been statrted. After waiting thirty minutes the waitress handed us our food without a ""sorry about the wait"" or any acknowlegement of our patience. The food: small portions decient quailty ingredients. The service was horrible. If you want to eat some down south cookin' that is actually good try Menphis Minis, where the food is stellar with service to match if not superceed!

The gumbo rocks!

Visited CP for the first time and decided to sample as much as we could. Started with the gumbo, which had plenty of filet in it, which makes it really nice. Add some red jalepeno hot sauce from the windowsill and you're in business. The corn bread is dynamite, perfect for crumbling into the gumbo. After that we had some fried oysters--not the freshest in town, and too much crunchy corn batter. The aioli was heavy with too much mayo in it. After that we had ""da bomb"" and a crawfish monica. First time I've seen a po-boy served on something other than lightly crusty french bread--big mistake; spongy and dense. The catfish was burned beyond recognition, but the shrimp were nice. Don't suppose this is common? Monica was pretty good, with a bit of a mac-n-cheese feel to it. Tons of butter and cream.

Leave Your Attitude at the Door...

...and you'll have a great time at this place. We first ate at CP over 3 years ago, and we keep coming back for their food and cozy atmosphere. This is a tiny, laid back, neighborhood restaurant. We always feel welcome, but if you're looking for some shi-shi, upscale place to be pampered, go somewhere else. However, if you want terrific, authentic cajun food at reasonable prices, go to CP. I like everything, but my favorites are Red Beans and Rice, Crawfish Monica, and The Bomb Po'Boy. Oh, and if you don't get the bread pudding for desert, you haven't lived.

Diamond in the Rough

Cajun Pacific is a true hidden gem way out in the lazy Outter Sunset area. My wife and I like to go there on weekend afternoons when the crowds aren't as large to enjoy their delicious ""Poor Boy"" sandwiches, which grow great with a cup of gumbo. Cajun music is usually playing to go along well with the relaxed feel of this place. The staff is really nice and can usually accomodate special requests (provided they're in season). ;)

Not so positive

I'm not from New Orleans, but have visited over 20x. Searched SF, Peninsula & the south bay for good N.O. eats, and had had hopes after reading the reviews - but alas, this one also does not pass. Crawfish fritters were too doughy and heavy. The gumbo (crawfish/andouille) was OK but a bit weak, definitely could've used file. The Monica was very strange - almost like mac and cheese (who puts parmesan on crawfish? - this is definitely a Californian add). I ate the red beans and andouille with a fork, not a spoon - never did that before -beans were very dry. Did not have a po-boy, though. Service was good, though, for such a small crowded place. Can't recommend the place though.

Hot Stuff!

Like the weekend waiter, the food is great, hot! and makes you want to go back for more. It's casual and a tight-fit, so leave your pretentions at home... it's this atmosphere that makes it unique and memorable. Reccommendation: cornbread, jambalaya and the fries. Good eats!

EXACTLY Like N'awlins

The cool thing about Cajun Pacific is the food tastes exactly like what you'd get in New Orleans. I've been there three times and each time I've met people from new Orleans who were jazzed to finally get a decent Po'Boy outside the French Quarter. Last time I was there some crazy dude in a crawfish outfit was passing around Mardi Gras beads.
