We had a lovely lunch at Cafe Pacific. We all chose the two choices option. You can get two different items for lunch for a very reasonable price and there are a lot of options. I got the seafood salad and clam chowder. You can choose from soups, salads, fish entres etc. They brought their popular dessert with a candle for my friend since we were celebrating his birthday. It was the pecan ice cream with almond cookie. We chose the restaurant also because it is quiet- my mom can't hear very well so it was more comfortable for her too.All in all it was a terrific lunch.

My two guests and I had three different fish dishes. All just ok. Would expect more at this price and for at least one item to be exceptional--they were not. Tired neighborhood haunt in Highland Park that stays busy with the older patrons of the town.

We went there because I saw the Pecan ball dessert on TV and I wanted to try it. I got the Seabass dinner and my husband got the scalloped dinner, both were over the most delicious risottos. They were absolutely perfect, cooked perfectly n they looked perfect as well. The service is impeccable. The pecan ball was not as fantastic as I thought it was going to be but we enjoyed it still. I would recommend this place. There is a dress attire code so keep that in mind.

I would usually rate this rest with 5 stars but, I think I just had a waiter who was off this night. We ordered a grilled red snapper that unknown to me came two differents ways, ( that the waiter did not explain ) so when dinner arrived it wasn't what we expected and ... to be truthful I was very disappointed. We didn't want to make an issue out of it so ....... we just ate it, paid the bill & left.

Café Pacific has always been a special place for us through the years, although this night was
disappointing. The hostess made it very obvious that, even though we had reservations and were on time,
many tables were being held for " regular customers", and we were directed to two different tables for
four in less than favorable locations. After she talked to the manager, we were seated in the main dining
area where there were 4-5 empty tables. Very annoying and rude. Of the four dinners ordered, three were
very disappointing. We'll skip it next time, we're not part of the "good old HP boys" crowd. Back to Del
Frisco's and Al's.....

Cafe Pacific is always top notch. The service food and ambience are classic. I recommend the clam chowder., oysters Rockefeller and sole amandine. The halibut was nice, but slightly overcooked. Dessert was a really nice ice cream/chocolate/ caramel/ pecan mess which was really lovely. All in, a really good dining experience. My first time here was in 1984 and they are still top notch.
