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.

Proper Dress Required (No T-Shirts, Shorts or Flip Flops.)

Everything here was top-notch. My lobster omelette lacked a bit of flavor but was overall still quite good. My mother had the crab benedict which was polished off completely. We visited for a mom/daughter birthday brunch and we enjoyed the special time together. Would recommend.

Our evening was all we wanted it to be, from a well made cocktail, to an outstandingly fresh crab cake, topped by their signature Sea Bass entree. Our old world server Walter, charmed us with his attention and absence at just the right times. I’ve dined on every continent, and warmly return to Cafe Pacific for those special meals that you want; a lovely meal in a setting you look forward returning too.

Had been here a few years back when they were in the location across the street. Really disappointed this time. Food was bland and only average at best. Service was polite but unprofessional (waiter reaching across the table for things, coming back every few minutes, etc.) Restaurant is nice and all, but the food was just way too underwhelming for the price. Absolutely nothing special about it. The other two people in my party said the exact same thing about their meals.

This hidden gem in HP Village has great food and service! We had oyster rockefeller, escargot, Caesar salad with extra anchovies, lobster, filet, risotto and pecan ball for dessert. Of course, we over ordered and took some home but it was all delicious. Don't forget to order a flirtini with vodka and more champagne! Definitely a special occasion or client business meal place since it is expensive.

Always consistent, always good. I ordered the burger which is so tasty I made it one of the 2 times per year that I eat beef! I usually get seafood or a salad but the burger was perfect- juicy, not fatty and done to perfection along with yummy crispy fries. If you are going to have a diet meltdown- this is definitely worth it. Service is impeccable as always. We always feel welcome and cared about here.

Cafe Pacific has become our special occasion restaurant and once again they were outstanding as we celebrated our 36th anniversary. The seafood is amazing and always very well prepared, the wait staff is knowledgeable and attentive (not overly so), and the General Manager Dieter checked to see that all was well. Highly recommended!

Timeless classic menu and service is consistent and guest-focused. Even though it is in Highland Park and the general clientele is in the upper income level (which we are not), the staff does not discern between what folks are wearing or ordering. Everyone gets first class treatment. They never try to push a table through to accommodate this popular spot. Make it your special go-to spot and you'll never be disappointed.
