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.

I would give five stars, but there was one issue I couldn’t ignore. I requested a table in advance in a nice location, as this was a special occasion. I definitely wanted to avoid being seated at the “penalty box” tables near the kitchen. We arrived about 30 minutes early to have a cocktail at the bar first. We were told our table was already ready, but we chose to go to the bar first. When it was time to be seated, we were put at a penalty box table next to the kitchen, which was exactly what I was trying to avoid. They sensed my disappointment and moved us to a better table. We have no interest in dining there at one of those bad tables. It’s a bit pricey, but has wonderful food and excellent service, which makes it worth it. However, being seated at an undesirable table pretty much ruins the experience. I notice others have complained about this same exact issue. So I took one star off for that reason, as that was quite annoying.

Two of the women ordered the oriental chicken salad and it was so bad that they had to send them back. Tasted like horseradish was how they described it. The brought out another salad for them to share but they had a bad taste in their mouth. My meal was delicious so not sure if we just can a bad day.
