This is a classic in Dallas for us. We live Houston and visit Café Pacific whenever we go to Dallas. We love meeting our Dallas friends here and enjoying a leisurely lunch. Great food, great atmosphere, friendly capable and courteous wait staff.

Loved it! It's just a great atmosphere with fantastic food. Classic dishes are on point without trying too hard, portions are generous and the execution is consistent. Staff is AMAZING - this is a team that clearly understands what good service is all about. It's a lovely, sophisticated atmosphere that feels neither dated nor stuffy - I love it. The cozy little bar tucked off to the side is absolutely adorable - can't wait to go back.

Each visit is a pleasure, drinks are generous, food is excellent, and wait staff is really good (when they're not over-taxed with large parties). Worth the effort for well-prepared seafood & tasty oysters, too!

The food was delicious, the staff are not pushy at all, they respected the conversation my friend and I were having by not being intrusive. No pressure to hurry up and order. The noise level is low so no issue hearing each other in a conversation. Great food and atmosphere, I’ll definitely return here for lunch again!

What a fantastic lunch! Took my Mum for her birthday as it is one of her all-time favorite restaurants. Food was impeccable - everything was absolutely perfect. Our waiter was a delight and, noticing the birthday cards at the table, surprised her with a lovely dessert and birthday candle - nothing over-the-top, just apropos for the occasion and setting. Definitely need to get this restaurant into my regular rotation of dinner spots!

the restaurant is lovely and the service is impeccable. My only complaint is that when you are just two people, you are always given the smallest table and close to a large table of a large group. Hard to have an intimate experience. However, when we did complain, they did accomodate us and moved us to a larger, quieter table.
