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.

It's always a treat to dine at Cafe Pacific. We were so happy to have Reuben as our waiter on Sunday. He really added a level of fun to our celebration.

Our server was AWESOME!! It was our first time we were dressed not in our best outfits and he didn’t treat us any different than others since it’s located in the highland park area. I loved loved our server made me feel so comfortable since I felt out of place 🙏🏼

One of the best meals and experiences I’ve had in a long time. A little expensive but well worth the $. Service was great. The ceviche outstanding. The pepper steak was perfect. Then there’s that pecan roll. Every bit as good as I had hoped. Highly recommend.

My martini was ordered straight up. It had ice in it and became watery. I should have sent it back. The oysters and red snapper were outstanding, as was the service. The side of spinach was steamed without a hint of butter, lemon, salt, or any other seasoning -i.e., pretty boring and tasteless, albeit healthy, no doubt. This is a lovely, old fashioned venue which hit some high points and missed on some others.

Cafe Pacific is a classic! From the elegant classic interior, the friendly greeters, the professional and knowledgeable wait staff, the food and service. All requests are handled quickly and professionally. We always know when we go to CP, we will never be disappointed by food or service. Being from a multi-generational Dallas family, we appreciate the class of service CP offers and never disappoints over many years. Keep up the good work!

Cafe Pacific has for many years been a favorite place for our family. This visit we took some friends who were visiting from San Francisco to dinner. Thanks to the delicious cuisine, creative drinks and impeccable service, the evening was a rousing success! We look forward to our next visit very soon!

You can always count on Cafe Pacific. Yes, it’s expensive, but so are many Dallas eateries, most of which not in the same league. The food is exceptional, the service professional, and the overall dining experience elegant.

We had an excellent birthday dinner for my wife. When one appetizer (escargot) was overdone, it was removed with agreement and apologies; its almost instant replacement was perfectly prepared. Our entrees (seabass and filet) were very good and our server, John, was world class; his wine advice led us to a label we'd not tried which was wonderful. I think Café Pacific just gets better with time.

I had the famous lemon sole almondine and it was fabulous. the fish was fresh, very lemony and flavorful and a nice texture of the almond crunch. If you don't like fish this is one to eat it is what they're known for. (The lobster was not so good it was hard and overcooked the steak was so-so. This was the Valentine's Day taste menu). Everything else was fantastic I think it may have been an off night. Don't forget their famous pecan crunch ice cream ball. It is a must for any time you like a nice, classic, great ambience dinner.

We made a reservation on one of the busiest days- Valentines. Fortunately, OpenTable was able to assist us with this task. Hard to pass up with the shoe string seeet potato chips. Somehow, we managed to take and break -to order. We ordered a Moscow mule and dirty martini, oysters and smoked salmon. In addition, we ordered salmon entrees. Start to finish the customer service was on point. Everything was delicious. We’ve been dining here for years. Needless to say, we will continue to do so.

We were there to celebrate Valentine’s Day and had reservations for 12:15pm. We were seated at a very tiny table. The table was too small for our appetizers and our water glasses. We noticed we were the only party of 2 seated at a tiny table. We were on top of other people as well. We dine here for every special occasion so we higher expectations than was delivered. Thus experience ruined our Valentine’s Day.
