Cafe Pacific Ratings and Reviews
Cafe Pacific not only is one of the older restaurants in Dallas , but among the best. Great location in Highland Park Village. Excellent menu, with great fish and steaks on the menu. A Variety of choices, good appetizers and salads and perhaps the best dessert "ever" in Dallas - the pecan ball. Worth a visit. Great service.
Cafe Pacific is my favorite seafood restaurant in Dallas. It is so nice to go to a nice white table restaurant with an old world feel. I had picked it for my birthday and thought I had made a reservation at 8:15. I have to commend the staff because even though I had made an error in my reservation they still managed to fit me in at the same time I had booked (a week later).
That is class!
No wonder Cafe Pacific is still in business after so many years!! It's always consistent with service, great food and just making you feel special!! It had been a while since my last visit and I was so pleased to find it's still excellent from when you pull up to the curb at valet until you leave!!
Every time we visit Dallas we always make it a point to dine at this restaurant it never disappoints, no matter what you have on the menu. They keep adding new things to keep it interesting. The bartender is top notch as are the waiters. Make this your favorite place, been coming for over 20 years.
I was extremely disappointed when I requested that my vegetable be sent back and cooked until it was well done. It went back to the kitchen but still came back al dente. It seems chefs think everyone likes half cooked vegetables. When you ask for well cooked vegetables they should accomadate you. I can not stand half cooked vegetables and feel that fine dining should be able to do this.
This is one review I hate to give, for I cannot say at how wonderful this location is! (and I don't want anyone else taking my table). The location is nothing less than perfect. The "human" treatment is better than any other location in Dallas. From the valet to your entry to you table service, the food experience, to your exit is awesome! Please stay away so I can get a table! Unbelievable experience.
Absolutely wonderful as usual. I hosted a luncheon for 8 and as requested was given a table in a quiet semiseperate space. The table looked lovely with vases of red roses. Lazlo was our waitperson. He paid attention to our every need. The entire staff make you feel like an old friend. The food is consistently excellent lunch or dinner. Thank you Cafe Pacific!
Although this is highly rated restaurant, I am not recommanding it because every time I dined there I was seated at the table next to door leading to the kitchen. To furher improve the ambiance, along the same wall is the bathroom. Rather than enjoying my evening I got to monitor kitchen and bathroom traffic.
The server never asked if we wanted coffee or after-dinner drinks and handed us the bill before we were done with desert.
Overall, not a pkeasant experience.
I was well aware of the "Dallas Institution" status of this restaurant and the generally fine reviews which is why I was so disappointed that an inattentive waiter with incredibly poor attention to detail put a damper on what should have been a great night with old friends. Food and drinks were exceptional, nice vibe and an attractive space but server consistently made errors and then pulled the disappearing act assuring his place as a main topic of conversation.
