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.

My wife and I went for our anniversary, the food was amazing. We had some oysters that were some of the best that we have ever had. The Salad special was amazing and the wedge was great as well. I had the Colorado double cut rack of lamb, it was probably the best lamb I have ever had. My wife had the sole almondine which was also delicious. It is a small restaurant and the place has not changed in years. The food is always outstanding and love this place. The server was very nice just not real personable and when asked about his opinions or recommendations all he could say was its good and as I watched him interact with the server assistant he seemed he was a bit rude. However we had good service just would have liked a more personable server and someone that could articulate the menu items better.

The service was outstanding! Our waiter was so incredibly nice. Cafe Pacific is one of the few restaurants in Dallas where you don’t feel rushed. A perfect place for a business or social lunch, when you want to be able to talk and eat.

Brought my father to Café Pacific for brunch to celebrate his 70th birthday. Outstanding service from start to finish. We began with cocktails, crab cakes and shrimp cocktail for the table, I had the best ham and cheese omelet ever and my girlfriend had the seabass. We had a table by the window and took advantage of the bar for a few hours after brunch. A special day in a special place.

We always enjoy Café Pacific as the food is wonderful and the wait staff exceptional. We were celebrating my sister's 50th birthday and Walter, our waiter, took excellent care of all of us!
Bon Appetit!

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.

The entire meal was amazing. I loved the little sweet potato fries. My fiancé had the sea bass & I had a ribeye and both were cooked to perfection!! Also, I would suggest saving room for the pecan ball, it’s a very delightful treat! Will definitely be back.

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.

This was a Birthday special occasion this time as we live in Tyler and get to Dallas occasionally . We go to Cafe Pacific around six times a year and always enjoy our meal there. We wish we could go more.

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!
