Pacific Cafe is a cozy comfortable friendly affordable bit of a splurge place out almost by itself on a corner amidst a relatively quiet neighborhood of homes. They do very fresh seafood in a simple straight forward cooking style. Since 1974. We started going here back in 1976. There are no reservations. I can still remember the disappointment when I saw all the people out on the sidewalk the first time we arrived for dinner. That glum feeling soon changed to delight when I was handed a nice glass of house white and we started chatting with the others. It was like an impromptu little house patio party. Except it was out on a sidewalk on a pleasant fog shrouded SF evening in front of a restaurant in the outer Richmond not far from Land's End and the Pacific. Well, happily they're still out there doing it the same great way. I think every restaurant should adopt the free wine while you wait policy. They also price the entrees in odd amounts - like the Filet of English Sole for $14.77. Their entrees include a salad or soup plus a choice of red potatoes or rice and also bread and butter. A bottle of that house white wine is just $14. Depending on how long you waited, because it can get very busy, it is possible you will have a refill out there on the sidewalk, you may only need another glass or maybe not with the meal. The Sole Newburg is quite nice, as well as the Fried Oysters and whatever is on special. Quite a few of the entrees have been on the menu since we first ate there. When we lived in the City this was our go to place for seafood - not Fisherman's Wharf.
