With a 4.5-star rating out of 26 reviews on Yelp so far, Be More Pacific has already made a good impression.

Manuel M., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on March 3, wrote, "I was very impressed with the service and response time the staff had, especially since it was extremely busy... All in all, this is the best Filipino restaurant/bar I have visited in Houston! We will be coming back to try all the other drinks and dishes we couldn't fit on this day."

And Vanesa V. wrote, "So glad we decided to tough out the wait and have dinner here tonight. We waited a little over 20 minutes for a table of six. Great food and service! Every dish we got was so good. My favorites were the fried chicken skin, daing an bangus (milk fish), salmon sinigang and chicken adobo."
