I would go there for lunch to avoid the crowds. Fish tacos are great, but all dishes wonderful. We sat at the bar and watched the chef make the fool. I would definitely go back.

Food was generally good, like higher end tavern food that's common now (fish tacos, ahi poke, etc). The place is tiny and if it's cold the door brings in a strong draft so try to avoid sitting right in front of the door. Better for really small groups of four or less. Carrot Ginger soup with Coconut Shrimp was good.... More

In the area for an errand we searched Trip Advisor for seafood and this was the top rated place in the neighborhood. It's a tiny dining room but we lucked out and were seated immediately. This was around 1:30 on a Wednesday and while we waited for our food a steady stream of hungry potential customers were told they'd have... More

After my husband getting takeout last night and enjoying it so much we decided to try again but eat in this time. Attentive staff, great tasty food and quick service. Ordered The mixed catch basket and the fish tacos, melt on your mouth food. Highly recommend a visit 😀

Stumbled upon this place while out in the area and glad we did. Food was fantastic and pretty cool to be seated right in front of the kitchen. The portion size was amazing and price was reasonable to. Wait staff were really good as well

I was looking for a good seafood restaurant in SF, for a Monday dinner, several were closed or offering more oysters and crabs that we didn't want to eat at this moment. So, Pacific Catch seemed to be a good compromise, we had both raw and cooked fish, the portions are the perfect size, very tasty. I'm not sure that... More

Pacific catch offers a great menu with lots of hearty and healthy choices. We had the special of the day and the hawaian teriyaki both with mahi mahi. The fish was perfectly cooked, moist and full of flavour (the rest of the dish was equally good). We also tried the fried calamari which was good but did not appreciate the... More

Was in the area and a coworker introduced me to this place. The food was very tasty but this is a very small and cramp place. There's a bar counter that sits around 10 people and 4 tables two of which were for couples while the other two had 4 seats each. Definitely recommend the tacos and pokes.

Our two families of eight total stopped here for lunch directly from the airport. The service was wonderful and the food even better. We ate everything from the fish and chips to the crab melt to the coconut shrimp, baja tacos, and rice bowls with Hawaiian poke. It was all wonderful. We highly recommend.

Thank Michelle W

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.
