Date night

Dined on April 24, 2016

My wife and I had a date and decided to go to 333. We have been wanting to try this place for sometime, glad we did. It was great, we will definitely be going again. The service was great and food was excellent. I truly like this place, and the Martinis were awesome!!!

Love this restaurant!

Dined on April 23, 2016

Absolutely love this place, great food and great cocktails. Perfect for special occasions, getting a little fancy, or going out for happy hour. The fried brussel sprouts are amazing, they taste like candy, perfect addition to a steak or eat them just because. Our server was very friendly and attentive all night and made great recommendations.

Anniversary Hit

Dined on April 22, 2016

We booked a reservation to celebrate our 37th anniversary and noted in our request that we were celebrating our anniversary and that we'd like a table outside on the patio. The staff could not have been nicer. We were wished happy anniversary multiple times, got a great table on the patio, watched the sun set, and received a complimentary dessert. I was quite impressed. We love going there for special occasions.

Oceanside Jewel

vip
Dined on April 17, 2016

First time at 333 Pacific and it didn't disappoint. Beautiful setting with many tables having ocean view. We had excellent service for Sunday lunch - always responsive but not too intrusive (which we don't like). The food was very good - lobster roll has lots of big chunks of lobster, although it was barely lobster salad and more like just plain lobster. Husband had eggs benedict with steak, also delicious with tender meat. Nice wine list. A beautiful bar, and I've heard they have a great happy hour as well. Will definitely return.

Poor quality prime rib

Nice seating. Hostess also had the A.C. draft turned off, thank you. Very good Waitress. Filet Mignon was very good. Unfortunately, we requested the sauteed Calamari appetizer to be prepared with very little oil and was soaked in oil, likewise, the Broccoli was not prepared as we requested.

A Top-Tier Restaurant

Dined on April 10, 2016

The staff is welcoming and courteous. The wait staff is helpful, well trained and friendly. The food is top quality, properly prepared and beautifully presented. The filet mignon dishes are superb. I love the Brussels sprouts. Oysters are local and delicious on the half shell. The menu has a numbe of vegetarian dishes. The wine list isn't the best I've seen but is much better than average. If you drink vodka, this is the place for you. The only thing that is a slight negative is that you look across Pacific Street to the ocean. There isn't a lot of traffic but every once-in-a-while a noisy vehicle goes by. It's not the most expensive restaurant where I've eaten and it's not a bargain restaurant. You pay for what you get and you get what you pay for.

Best dining experience in north San Diego County

Dined on April 1, 2016

My wife and I had seen 333 before while exploring downtown Oceanside. The night before my deployment, we decided to splurge and visit 333 as a last dinner. From the moment we got there, the service was outstanding. The wine pours were generous, our appetizer immaculate, and the steaks cooked to perfection. The scenic sunset view was gorgeous, and the ambiance was spot on. Quiet conversations allowed us to enjoy each others' company for nearly 2 hours without interruption. Truly one of the best dining experiences I've had in California. We will be coming back as soon as possible, and unquestionably recommend others try this gem.

A place I use to love appears to have been consumed by its own success. Tried the Easter Brunch for affordability and availability. Obvious others knew the quality of menu and service had changed as the place was empty. Prime Rib was tasteless, after eating small portion the server only question was should he wrap it....with a quick no I expected how was everything - he never questioned my satisfaction. Well for me 333 Pacific is a wrap!

Easter Luncheon

Dined on March 27, 2016

We have dined at 333 many times and usually enjoy it very much. Our group of four were treated very well and the food was generally good as usual. The only downside this time was the length of time it took for service on a fixed menu. It took a little more that two and a quarter hours to complete the meal, and the restaurant was not even crowded. Don't let this put you off, because we know it is not the norm. We'll return again.

Mixed Bag

vip
Dined on March 27, 2016

We went to celebrate my husband's birthday. He ordered the Taste of New Orleans. I ordered the pan seared chicken breast, with brussel sprouts and polenta. The spacing between courses was mixed, first everything came quickly, then too slowly. My chicken and brussel sprouts were over cooked. We were disappointed. In the past the food and service were very good.

Excellent place for special event!

Dined on March 27, 2016

We absolutely loved the service. We requested to sit in the patio area, which they not only put us in, but because we told them we were celebrating a 1st Anniversary Dinner, they also put us in a corner where we could be as noisy as we wanted to be. The food was fabulous, exotic and delicious. The calamari was a perfect way to start the meal. It was a toss up between the herb encrusted bass (catch of the day) and the pan roasted salmon which was done to perfection. For dessert, the peanut bombe was the bomb, although I enjoyed the traditional creme brulee!

Took family for lunch on Saturday of Easter Weekend. Beautiful location, free parking, good service. Very friendly and accommodating to toddler. I like CRG restaurants and this was my first time at 333 Pacific. Food was generally good but lunch menu very limited. Did not care for the Crab Salad sandwich. Chili sauce calamari, burger and fish tacos were good.

Dined on March 13, 2016

This place is great! We took the kids last night and both are picky eaters. Our waitress Maggie was fantastic. She was able to make sure both kids were taken care of and happy. The food was really yummy and good portions. The location is fun if you are from out of town as it is located across from the boardwalk. My kids loved the lively area and we watched the sunset from the restaurant. We started with the tuna tartar dish and salad. Both good. The kids menu had beef filet and it was the right size. Both kids enjoyed their steaks and the kids menu has steaks and other usual kid food. Adults had the NY strip and salmon, again very tasty. I read some reviews about the staff issues..we had nothing but helpful staff from the moment we walked in the door. We were welcomed, the waitress was very nice and helpful, the staff who brought the food and the staff who filled up the water were all extremely attentive. We were really happy with this choice. They have a nice bar too but it was a family night so I can't comment. It was busy so I'm sure you'll be fine with the drinks too.

They sat us quickly. Loud and crowded, not unexpected. Reasonable wine list. Ordered $48 special New Orleans four course meal. Course one was ONE delicious shrimp. Course two was three small (and delicious) oysters. Course three was a small bowl of (delightful) jambalaya. Course five was four beignets...overcooked almost burned. Sent em back. Overall, disappointing.

Disappointed

Dined on February 28, 2016

Reservations were easy to get for a Saturday. Although known for their Martinis, mine was more like that of a slushy Margarita, not strained and therefore tasted watered down. I specifically asked for 3 olives and only received 2. I asked again, she said that she would ensure that I got not only another olive, but would bring back two more...that never happened. My steak was quivering on the inside, not the medium rare I ordered. This was corrected by the manager, but our waitress never noticed. The steamed broccoli side order I ordered was tremendously overcooked. When I asked for a refill of water, our waitress answered sweetly that it would be quickly forthcoming, but again, that never happened. The three other people at the table thought that their meals were tasty, but not necessarily for the money spent.

Wow, we had: • 10/10 - White Fish, Shrimp & Calamari Ceviche - Very nice with warm chips • 9/10 - Cayenne Honey Brussels Sprouts - Cooked nicely and we ate them all, but the touch of sweetness did not get me excited • 10/10 -Cedar River Farms Natural Braised Beef Short Rib - This was slow cooked and had fallen off the bone, just the way I like it. This would be a must order for the next visit! • 7/10 - Fish of the day: Panko Crusted Mahi Mahi on risotto - Fish was cooked just right and served HOT, Risotto was forgettable at best so I just ate the fish (and 1/2 of my wife's Short Rib)
