Success! Thanks for posting your review of Pacific Cafe. You’ve done the world some good today.


Incredible coffee. There are a lot of gifted people behind that counter. I love the frappe from here as well, a good buy if it’s hot outside.

You will be hard-pressed to find a better LOCAL SEAFOOD spot in San Francisco!

Go ahead, try to find a better spot. And IF (note that I didn't say WHEN) you do, come back and respond to this review, and I promise I will give your recommended spot a fair shake. Date / date-night? This is your spot! Just the two of you... this is how your evening will go (for the most part): 1. Wait for a seat outside, with some free wine as the fog rolls in (iconically San Francisco) 2. Move inside as the w... view more

Classic Seafood Restaurant

I could not put a con- if you show up at opening or after 9pm then no real wait. If you show up at 6 and expect to be seated in 15 to 20mins go down the street- this place is hoping, grab the pad, put your name down, get a free glass of wine and be nice. Talk to the locals, but not bring your bad energy there it will be felt. This is a very authentic san francisco gem. It is small and quaint. It is in a nice quiet n... view more

Why, oh why do people like this place? Last I went with a group of friends, we had to wait in the freezing cold outside for over 2 hours, and that's for a group of 4! The decor is very '70s, and the cheap swill-filled glass of wine they give you while waiting isn't worth all the hassle. \r \r Moreover, the server was rude and decided to lecture us because we had asked about our salad. A couple of people ordered sou... view more

Best Seafood in the City!

My expectations were high and met! The cheap wine is just the thing to make an hour and a half wait ok (we got there at opening and the line was already long enough to fill every table), and my mom (who is very impatient) was fine with waiting since we had a nice little seat and a nice little glass.\r \r The food! Amazing, prawns with nothing on them and they are just perfect, no need to dip in the butter they brin... view more

best seafood in the city

I've been a regular at Pacific Cafe for years. It is by far the best sea food in the city, maybe even the best on the Peninsula. Always fresh, my favorits is the halibut parmesean. It is small and cozy with a very comfortable atmosphere. Expect to wait, sometimes up to an hour (or more on the weekend) but (and this is the best part) the friendly host will serve you free house wine while you wait!

A Local Gem!

I have NOTHING but good things to say about The Pacific Cafe!\r Let's start at the beginning- You walk in and find this place jam packed full of people; that can never be a bad thing! After you put your name on the list you will be greeted with a free (bottomless) glass of house white wine; need I go on?\r Once you finally get a table, which could be quite a wait - so plan accordingly, you will find yourself in a ... view more

They do seafood better than most places

The long lines should tell you that it's a favorite place to go for seafood. We haven't been back here in years because they don't take reservations but we came early this time at 5:30p and waited one hour on a Saturday evening for a table and struck up a conversation with a fellow resident. There are so many choices. The Caesar salad is really fresh with homemade cheesy croutons and a great dressing. The salmon ... view more

Expect a wait, but it'll be worth it

Great place. The wait was longer than I had expected but the free wine made it better. The service there was one of the best I've had. They arranged for our group of 8 to sit together in the small space that they had but it was still very comfortable. The food was great. Fresh oysters, fresh seafood--and the prices were very reasonable too. I would definitely go there again and take more people with me.

You can't beat this place for excellent seafood. The soups are to die for. The Crab Bisque here is the best I have ever had. And treat yourself to Crab Diablo whenevr fresh crab is in season. It is well worth the price. The waiters and waitresses are always friendly and helpful. The free wine is just a bonus. The regulars always come at 5pm for the first sitting
