    Spend $182 for 3 people but get worst experience ever. While I appreciate the overall ambiance, our experience with the front desk waiter, Emoire, was disgusting. I had made a reservation for 7:30 PM one week earlier, specifically requesting a table close to the windows. We arrived at the restaurant at 7:00 PM. However, Emoire informed us that there were no special requests noted on our reservation and attempted to seat us at a different table. When I reminded her of our request for a window table, she checked the system again and then acknowledged the request but claimed that all window tables were occupied and we would have to wait due to a first-come, first-served policy. Shortly after, we noticed an empty table in a desirable location and asked if we could be seated there. Emoire responded that this table was reserved for others who had not yet arrived. Thankfully, the manager intervened, seating us at an alternative table temporarily and promising that we could move to a window table if one became available. At approximately 8:10 PM, after 1 hour wait, finally a suitable table became available. However, as the manager was about to lead us to it, Emoire suddenly directed another party of two to the four-person window table, despite several other two-person window tables being available for them, and Emoire stated she already let the customer seated so there are no available table again. Once again, the manager had to step in to resolve the situation by relocating these customers so that we could finally be seated at the window table. This series of events not only caused considerable inconvenience and delay but I can also notice Emoire is intentionally disregarding our request and discriminating us.

    The most incredible meal of our trip (and maybe of our year). Not a bad food or drink the whole night. I couldn't recommend Pacific's Edge enough.

    What a beautiful restaurant! Service was top notch. Food was okay. Nice, hot and full of favors. Not a big vegetarian selection but happy there was something for us to eat. The veggie burger would’ve been better if grilled and seasoned.

    This is my second time there. Because of the crowds, the noise level was too high and service was very slow. It seemed understaffed. There was no ocean view during the dawn because of the fog. Overall experience was not good.

    Very energetic place, with great food (short rib with polenta & root vegetables was too good) (filet with mashed potatoes and carrots-leeks was amazing), friendly people (knowledgeable, helpful, but no hovering 😎), and views that you see usually only get to see in photographs. We dined here on out honeymoon in 1986 and return every few years only to find just enough to remember it well but also watch it stay current with the times, see you in a few!
