THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Pacifica Restaurant Review

: From the same team that opened Cabernet, a steak house, comes Pacific, devoted, as one might expect, to fish. The key to enjoying this restaurant is to keep the order simple: raw oysters, grilled fish. Fried seafood seemed over-coated to us. Cooked dishes tend to be over-fussed and over-priced in our view. A pair of crab cakes goes for $24.95, for instance. Anything adventurous can miss the mark: Pan-roasted Diver scallops were fine for the scallops, but the corn risotto was so overcooked, we thought it was mashed potatoes! In an effort to be creative, flavor combinations can get positively weird: ancho mango barbeque sauce with crispy calamari just goes wide of the mark. The wine list is huge, indicates vintages, and offers lots of good values. The Sauvignon Blanc offerings number nearly as many selections as other restaurants offer in Chardonnays, and they’re value choices, besides being perfect with fish and shellfish. There are good options on the by-the-glass list, too, although $17 for a glass of wine seems severe for a selection (the excellent Treana red blend) that retails for $45. Still, with the Canyon Road Sauvignon Blanc at $5.25 a glass, complaining is fruitless. Glassware is decent, too.
