Rarely you will find a restaurant with great food and an amazing view. You would dine overlooking the beach. The food is tasty, great service and excellent drinks.
Great place for family gatherings, birthdays, any occasions.
Highly recommended.

Ate on the upstairs patio and watched the sun set over the pacific. Beautiful! We were then entertained by a pair of dolphins playing in the water!. The food was good - nothing to rave about...

Views, wine, and ambiance are spectacular! The ceviche and lobster tacos were delicious, the ocean view adds to the lovely experience.

Tried to eat here previously but, without a reservation, there was a one hour wait. This time, reservation in hand, we were seated immediately. I had requested a table for two with a view and that's exactly what we got - right at the ocean front window.
Our server, Lauren, was great. No rush at all and she was always contacting us, with a smile, to see if we needed anything.
We shared a calamari appetizer, which was very good and enough for three people. I had the Cowboy 18 oz. rib eye steak which was done nicely ($40). My wife savored the scallop dish.
So, bottom line, don't come here expecting a gorgeous view and mediocre food. Oh, no. Come here expecting a fabulous sunset and great food - but, you will pay a price.
($5 valet parking plus gratuity.)

The Pacific Coast Grill is an absolute must when in the north county area of San Diego. Four of us dined for lunch--each of us was thrilled with the meal and environment.

The setting could not be any better! The restaurant is situated directly on the ocean. Every table, both inside and outdoor, has an excellent view. There is a mirrored wall on the inside which allows for a reflection of the ocean and surfers.

The shrimp dumplings were outstanding! Each of us had a great meal. I had the burger which was crowned with a shrimp, crab, and lobster topping!! It was truly amazing. The accompanying fries were to perfection.

We look forward to returning soon!
