Its a good while since I have been to Pacifica Cantonese, so as friends were visiting booking a table being a Friday night and Chinese New Year. We all enjoyed it had the Banquet Meal, but far too much ........ we did however have the extra boxed up.
Will definitely be back, the staff being very attentive and looked after us well.

Had a very pleasant evening. The food and service were excellent. Pacifica was recommended by our friends and we were not disappointed. We plan to revisit in February and bring some friends.

We love pacifica, would definitely go back. We were a little surprised to be informed that the staff unless you pay cash don't get the tip, little disappointing, will definitely be paying in cash from from now on as the servers work so hard!

Booked a table for two for our 36th wedding anniversary. Chose Pacifica because open table website showed extensive choice of menu. We were disappointed on arrival to find that the internet menu was very different from Pacifica menu which was quite limited.
The food was very good but the whole experience was let down by the standard of service which was ok but staff were not very knowledgeable or perhaps the communication between diners and waiter seemed difficult.
The main fault was the lack of knowledge of drinks. We asked for an aperitif of classic dry martini before our meal but the Maitre D' seemed not to know what constituted a dry martini and seemed aghast when we asked for the drinks to include a green olive. When we enquired about cocktails he just gave us a blank expression and disappeared into the distance never to be seen again.
The open table website gave us to believe that we would receive 5 star food and service. The fact was that we enjoyed the food but the overall experience could have been so much better.

This was our first visit to the Pacifica Cantonese and we were suitably impressed from the moment we entered the restaurant with the décor and friendly welcome. The selection from Dim Sum to main courses was wide and varied and nice variations on traditional dishes and meal was enhanced by a good wine list .The service by waitresses and waiters was excellent and efficient and contributed to a great evening . We will certainly return

I dined at Pacifica Cantonese on a Friday night with my partner to celebrate an anniversary. We found all the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food we had was very good value for money and the service was quick without making you feel pressured to eat quick and get on to the next course. A very good experience and we would definitely return in the future.

Not particularly impressed. Food was mediocre and not very hot. Waited 25 minutes for our table despite booking. Wine by the glass very limited. Wouldn't visit again. We regularly visit the Yang Sing in Manchester which is far superior.

It took them 15 minutes to seat me although I had booked on-line. It wasn't until 30 minutes after I entered the restaurant that I stated the hors d'ouvres.

Apart from the pancakes for the duck (which were cold and I could not be bothered complaining - I had waited long enough already), the food was excellent and I would recommend it.
