Got brunch here on Saturday morning. Food was pretty good, and atmosphere is very nice. Loved the look of exposed brick and cool lighting features around the room. Food was tasty. Had the eggs Benedict and 1502 Breakfast. Servers are quite friendly as well.

This was my first visit to the Pacific Grill. The food was excellent. Everyone in our group loved the food. The only down side was slow service. I would understand if they had been very busy but they were not.
