A word from Cafe Pacific
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.

Diner Reviews
  • "We eat there so often we feel like family and CP did not disappoint last Friday night. It truly is a great place to go for a nice pleasant dinner. Be sure to go to the bar and meet the bartenders- they are the greatest."

  • "loved the sweet potato fried strings.I liked the summer tomato salad but don't know if others would since I was surprised at the paucity of fresh tomato yet it was topped with sweet pickled rind, and the fried okra atop the salad were warm and crispy and good...definitely a unique salad."

  • "If you are in the mood for delicious seafood, ambient atmosphere, and a charismatic staff, Cafe Pacific is a terrific restaurant to eat at. The entire staff from door to table were sociable, prompt, and made the evening special. We had cocktails at the bar which were perfectly made and the bartender was highly engaging with us. At dinner, we enjoyed our appetizers, salads, and main course of sea bass and shrimp dinners that melted in our mouths. Our waiter Ruben, was entertaining, informative, and took care of our every need. We ended the night with coffee and relaxed in the ambiance of the restaurant. My wife and I highly recommend Cafe Pacific for a wonderful evening."

  • "Our first time. It was good and i would recommend but it was not what I thought it was going to be. It's definitely an older crowd feel and clearly a neighborhood haunt (lot of folks knew each other). Again, we enjoyed but we just thought it was going to be something different."

  • "We enjoyed having lunch and celebrating our anniversary at the same place as we shared some twenty four years ago. Do you remember what movie was playing across the street?. It was Pretty Woman, and I had lunch with my pretty woman and the marriage worked, maybe it was the food. Thanks again, we will return."

  • " We have always reserved Cafe Pacific for a place to celebrate an event with an elegant meal in lovely surroundings. The quality of the food, the measured attention of the wait staff, and the lovely ambiance of the restaurant make it a diamond in a city that thrives on noisy, flashy dining places. Whether you are there for a business conversation or to stare into your loved one's eyes, you can feel alone in the midst of many other guests."

  • "The food is very good. The sweet potatoe straws really make it for me and those are automatically placed on the table! What we really enjoy is the atmosphere. The bar scene is fun and the bartenders are the same year after year. That says something in and of itself. Beautiful atmosphere. I disagree with some of the reviews talking about all of the grey hairs that dine here. Yes, there are many older people, but it is an institution for them and should be for any of us. It is great food and a beautiful place."

  • "Cafe Pacific is one of my favorite restaurants. I have eaten there many times and have never been disappointed. The simple grilled salmon is the best around, delicious, not fishy or too oily. The red snapper with the corn relish is wonderful also. They have added a few new menu items that sound good. I also recommend for dessert the fresh fruit in the delicate almond cookie cup. "
