    Get together with my mother before she goes out of town for a few months. Our experience was phenomenal. The only thing that didn’t work was the two of us being sat next to a 6 top. It was just too loud. Next time I will request a quiet booth. Service was professional without being stuffy, and the food was amazing as always.

    Ladies restroom was horrible! Dirty. Needs updating. Our server Lily spoke SO FAST and never smiled. Disappointing although I know how hard it is to get wait staff. Maybe she was having a rough morning.

    It was a perfect anniversary dinner. The Sole Meuniere was incredible and the waiter helped us pair a wonderful Sauvignon Blanc go with it. We don't live in Dallas, but we always go to Cafe Pacific when we travel there.

    This restaurant is my go-to for taking friends and family for a wonderful meal in an elegant - but not stuffy - setting. The food was excellent and perfectly prepared as usual. I have known Peter, our service person, from my first visit here. He is a gracious, attentive waiter who senses the pace you prefer and times his service around that. It was the perfect evening.

    We were there for my wife's birthday. As we were paying the check, I thanked the waiter and said we would ask for him next time we were thee. He said no need to come back and no need to ask for him. He made us feel as if we did not fit in or belong there. When I spoke to Manager, we were told that's the waiter's attitude and no concession was offered. Truly a negative experience for my wife on her birthday and being 7 months pregnant.

    Overall had a very good experience. The food was very good. Our waiter was friendly and engaging, but we were a little disappointed in the amount of wait time between courses. One of the hostesses seemed to notice and intervened on a couple of courses/drinks. It was almost like she was our waiter and not a hostess.

    Cafe Pacific is an extraordinary restaurant and truly the premium of Dallas. Recently they have added a two course lunch menu for $16.50, you can't beat that anywhere in town. The service is impeccable, the food is amazing and it is my go to lunch from this point forward!
