    Reservation for three at 7:15 pm made a couple weeks in advance for a special occasion (82nd birthday). Arrived on time the evening of and was told we were going to be seated out on the patio. We corrected that we did not make a reservation for the patio. Frankly, didn't even know this restaurant had a patio. Hostess essentially insinuated we were liars, insisted we did make a reservation for the patio, and sat us out on the patio. We were too polite with this treatment and should have stood our ground. Weather was ok but we did not arrive dressed to sit outside (December 5). Cafe Pacific for us is not that kind of restaurant, nor did we want that kind of dining experience at this restaurant. Restaurant was busy however. Something must have been up. Their error. We pay. Table outside was not ready. Service at first was neglectful. None of the heating towers around the tables on the patio were working. Thankfully the birthday person in our group was in good spirits and did not mind. One in our party was getting cold, but stuck it out. Food was excellent and well-timed once the wait staff started acknowledging us. Outdoor ambience is good, but not what we planned when we made this reservation at this particular restaurant. If we wanted a cantina experience, we would have planned to dine elsewhere, and dressed appropriately.

    We were celebrating a birthday. Our waiter was excellent. He never interrupted our conversation but was quickly available when we needed him. He gave us a yummy ice cream covered in dark chocolate and pecans with a candle on top. Everything was perfect.

    Wonderful food and great service. It's a bit like walking back in time - white table cloths, cloth napkins, helpful but not too pushy wait staff. It's a constant in an ever-changing food landscape. I always know it will be an enjoyable meal.

    The experience was perfect, however the lobster with truffle pasta was not flavorful and too watery. The 9oz fillet was perfectly wonderful. I love scallops but last time I had them at cafe Pacific they were too undercooked so seafood has been somewhat disappointing in the last few months when previously it was exceptional.
