Decided to have dinner here with my spouse on our first night in San Francisco, as it was highly recommended on websites and the Chestnut street locale was also close to our hotel. It's a tiny establishment and you may have to wait a few minutes for a table, but the food makes it totally worth it! Fantastic Hawaiian-Korean fusion... More

This is my second time to go to Pacific Catch. My wife has been here plenty of other times but this is the first time to review it. We both got the fish tacos and they were fresh and tasty with the toppings and sauces. We had a poke bowl to start and it was super fresh with a great... More

We read about Pacific Catch on Trip Advisor & decided we had to come here on our last SF trip. The restaurant is pretty small – not a lot of seating. We were here at the prime time of lunch but, surprisingly, only had to wait 20 minutes. They’ve got a huge menu, so we easily killed that time deciding... More

We had to wait for about 1 hour for a small table inside, however the food was delicious. I had the taco sampler, it was delicious. I had mahi-mahi, shrimp and skirt steak tacos. The sauces were great, delicious sweet potato fries and the tacos were amazing. Highly recommended.

You cannot make reservations at this restaurant but it was well worth the wait of 30 minutes on a Saturday night. Jeffrey, our server, was most attentive and suggested some great dishes. All the food was great. The fish and chips were nicely cooked with a light batter and the rice bowl (suggest half salad, half rice) was very filling... More

This place is all about flavors. We went there with friends for casual lunch and we tried a few of their dishes. The Tuna salad, the Salmon salad and the fish tacos were all fresh, good size and excellent. The appetizer we share which include 3 different tuna serving in what looks like ceviche, was absolutely spot-on! This place is... More

We visited this restaurant with a friend who said the cocktails were good. Unfortunately we ate! We saw a Japanese restaurant right next door, wanted sushi, but she took us here. We ordered thai soups which were good, and sushi which was absolutely not to our taste. I suppose generously you could call it fusion, but sushi filled with mayo... More

Last night in San Francisco and we decided to try this restaurant and we are so glad we did. It is very small with very few tables, we were very lucky that it wasn't very busy. The waiters are so nice, the ambience is great, service is quick and food is lovely. We tried the soup of the day, tacos,... More

On the trip advisor listings as of October 2016, Pacific Catch is ranked 14, out of 4260. Now that is impressive. Maybe there are some places with better food , or some with better service, or some with a better location or better staff. Well yes, maybe. But this restaurant (it really is a busy cafe), has got the total... More

Staying in Marina District

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to the Marina. Originally the location for the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city. With the picturesque bay setting as its backdrop, it’s no surprise that the area has hosted numerous movie productions. Daytime activities focus on café culture and boutique shopping, while the evenings turn this neighbourhood into a party-going hotspot.
