Perfect for graduation dinnerWe had a marvelous dining experience. Our waiter was perfect and wonderful! Food was superb!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMYou Can't Go WrongWe have dined at Cafe Pacific many times over the past few years and have never been disappointed. We usually go there for special occasions.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent food and serviceexcellent food and service for a reasonable price!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe daily special appetizerThe daily special appetizer was wonderful--the best crab cake, all lump crab and no "filler"--served as an entree with a side salad.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were at Cafe Pacific forWe were at Cafe Pacific for lunch. I had a chopped shrimp salad. Before digging in I asked what dressing. In about 30 seconds the chef appeared with a lengthy description of ingredients and why. It was totally delicious. My lunch partner had a crepe salad that he also complimented. The place is a gem, a white table-clothed bistro in a small corner of an upscale shopping center. Service was practically instantaneous and warm. Prices moderate-- actually low for the quality of food. Only downside was the noise. The place was filled with business types and social meeting, all conversing loudly. Otherwise, one could not ask for a better place for lunch.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMHighland Park GemCafe Pacific continues to have the freshest seafood with an elegant atmosphere in Highland Park.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorable Sunday afternoon brunchThis remains one of our favorite restaurants, especially for brunch. The food and service are always impeccable. Thank you for another memorable Sunday afternoon!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA long time standard in HighlandA long time standard in Highland Park, Cafe Pacific never fails to impress with both food and service. Fresh oysters highlighted our meal. Served with three distinct sauces they were fresh and wonderful. Lots of crab on the Crab Louis and if you have never had the Pecan Ball for dessert you are missing a true Texas treat.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMTradition reignsFabulous as usual for the older, traditional, Highland Park residents who have enjoyed superb seafood and service for generations. The opposite of hip and trendy.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSurprisingly disappointedI have been a loyal customer of Cafe Pacific for many years because of its dependable excellent food and dining experience. However, on this evening I was very disappointed with the Rack of Lamb and other food items. The bread which is usually hot and fresh was cool and hard. The Caesar salad was just okay but the Rack of Lamb chops were so tough and hard to chew that even using a large meat knife I could hardly cut it. I even left half of the order untouched. The vegetables were just so-so. One of the reasons I have returned again and again is that the food there has been outstanding. For whatever reason, on this night it was just average to poor. So I don't really know if I will recommend the restaurant again or not.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one of the best placesThis is one of the best places to dine in Dallas....not to be missed.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love Cafe Pacific! It wasWe love Cafe Pacific! It was the perfect dining experience from the moment we walked in!
Fabulous food, service, ambiance and excellent value. A real gem in HPV!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat mainstay!Beautiful restaurant. The restaurant was over capacity and the staff, especially the bartenders, kept it comfortable and exciting. I prefer a big crowd because that is where the action is. The bartenders kept our glasses full without missing a beat. The waiters were on cue. I had the red snapper and it was overcooked, but the atmosphere and service made up for it. I will definitely keep going back. Even though it is seafood, I will be having the rack of lamb next time. It looks incredible.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWait staff were attentiveWait staff were attentive but not overbearing.

The fresh seafood is expertly prepared and graciously served. The location in Highland Park is upscale and elegant without being pretentious. I highly recommend Café Pacific. Ask for Walter, as he is a waiter in the old-world tradition of elegance.3/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Best Seafood In Dallas!The best fresh seafood in Dallas is still Cafe Pacific. The Management and Staff all work to take care of every guest as if they are locals.2/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExceeded Expectations!We were in Dallas for a vacation/work and we compare all restaurants to NYC establishments. We had read how wonderful Cafe Pacific was and decided to try it. It exceeded our expectations. This was such a lovely restaurant - the food was delicious and the portions were just right; the service impeccable - the wait staff was attentive without being overbearing; and the atmosphere was charming and calm. We will definitely return when we come back to Dallas.1/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOld World EleganceCafe Pacific is a neighborhood gem in Highland Park, where the neighbors drive Rolls Royces, Bentleys, Porches and Mercedes. The service is top-notch, old world elegance. Walter is especially good, but the entire management and staff are fantastic. The freshest seafood, experty prepared, is the best in North Texas. The bartender should teach other bartenders how to manage the fast-paced bar scene, whilst still maintaining graciousness, which is an art lost to most.
I highly recomend this restaurant.1/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA great pick for a ChristmasA great pick for a Christmas Eve dinner with family. Food always excellent!
The lights in the trees were especially pretty on Christmas Eve.12/24/2012 12:00:00 AMGreat service and ambiance!Cafe Pacific is a Gem in Highland Park. The seafood is fresh, the filet is fantastic, and the management and staff maintain a high level of service. It is nice to enjoy a restaurant that still has gentlemen in jackets and ladies in dresses.12/22/2012 12:00:00 AM
