Seafood
An institution in Dallas dining for over 31 years, Cafe Pacific embodies sophistication while remaining decidedly unpretentious. Our friendly "neighborhood seafood restaurant" has garnered praise both locally and nationally for its casual elegance. You’ll dine in the warm glow of dark mahogany, rich marble, etched glass and polished brass. The walls are adorned with art from the owner's collection.

Cafe Pacific is nestled in Highland Park Village, Dallas' premiere shopping locale, where pampering is the order of the day. From the complimentary valet parking to the outstanding service from our knowledgeable veteran staff, Cafe Pacific offers you sophistication without a hint of snobbery.

Anniversary asked about when booked reservations but totally ignored at restaurant. Not made to feel special or that they welcomed the business. The waiter was not helpful in wine selections. The food was excellent.

Great HP staple with nice ambience. Chowder was fantastic, scallops were too salty, as was the rub on the NY strip. Service was stellar, although the kitchen got one of the orders wrong. Would recommend.

We were celebrating our anniversary, and everything about our experience at Cafe Pacific was exemplary - from the atmosphere, the service, the food, the wine & the desert. We could not have asked for a better experience on our special occasion. We would highly recommend Cafe Pacific to anyone wanting a superb dining experience.

Terrible service, salmon supposed to be grilled, pan fried, over priced and over cooked, “fresh heirloom and tomato” side had two cherry tomatoes and pickled cucumbers. Bread and garnish were hard and stale. Took 45 minutes to be served. Manager apologized and was excellent but the special night was ruined by never getting the waiter to give two older women the time of day, only checked on tables with men. Will never go back or recommend

Always a special treat to have a reservation at Cafe Pacific whether for brunch, lunch or dinner. Service is always impeccable: attentive but not intrusive. The food is excellent, no matter what is chosen. Ambience is intimate but not stuffy. One can actually hear table companions (a novel concept for some of the newer restaurants in our city). I could eat at Cafe Pacific all the time.

We had a great time, great service, and great food overall. Only reason I gave the food a 4 was my husbands New a York Strip had a lot of gristle in it which I thought to be very odd for highly recommended premier restaurant. Other than that, our food was fantastic!

We had a fabulous dining experience at Cafe Pacific during Restaurant Week. Cafe Pacific had one of the best pre selected menu options for Restaurant Week. The seafood risotto was delicious. It was our first time dining there, and we will definitely be back! Service was phenomenal with Peter as our waiter. 5 stars all around.

Cafe Pacific was perfect for our lunch get together. Ruben started the afternoon off beautifully with his humor and suggestions for lunch/brunch. As expected, the food was delicious and presentation was very appealing. Everyone ordered a different entre and each was very pleased with their selection. Must share dessert, carrot cake and key lime pie were prepared on site. Absolutely a wonderful experience.
