Seafood
An institution in Dallas dining for over 31 years, Cafe Pacific embodies sophistication while remaining decidedly unpretentious. 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.

Have been coming often over the years. Service was good but were out of lobster. The restaurant seems to be going down hill. Very sad was one of my favorite restaurants

Service was wonderful. Initial table seating was ridiculous. Party of two, initially tried to sit us one on end and one on side of a table maybe 16 in x 24 in. We passed three couples sitting at either a four top or a six top. Red snapper was dry, overcooked. Bronzino was cooked perfectly. Brussel sprouts were disappointing w little flavor. Tomato caprese was great as was key lime tart. Have enjoyed restaurant prior. Unsure if we will try again.

We had traveled from Louisiana to Dallas for a dance competition and decided we wanted to branch out to a new Restaurant. This was a marvelous choice!! Everything about our visit excelled from the sophisticated atmosphere that was also friendly to the excellence of the food. Our waiter was able to anticipate what we wanted to drink once we mentioned we had danced for 10 hours that day, he knew the right champagne and kept it flowing as we relaxed and celebrated. The entire wait staff was friendly and over extended their courtesy to us with laughter as well as professionalism.
The food (the Lemon Sole and Sea Bass plus Ceviche) was marvelously prepared. As we we left, our spirits were high and our appetite wonderfully satisfied. I highly recommend this jewel in Dallas!!

The steak was perfect. My wife’s fish, not so much as it was a bit raw on the inside. The strong oder kind of gave it away that the fish may not have been as fresh as we would of like it.

For many years I’d heard about Cafe Pacific and as much as I love an exceptional meal, I dislike the hoity toity feel and atmosphere so many fine dining restaurants seem obliged to present. I can tell you without reservation, if you desire a splendid dining experience, a lovely wine list, an approachable waiter and relaxed, yet elevated dining atmosphere, this is your spot! We had an amazing dinner with impeccable service and felt completely at ease and comfortable. What could be better? Dine here and often. You will not be disappointed!

I ordered the half lobster and steak expecting a fresh lobster. Very small and unfortunately it was filled with a green substance which ruined the taste. Waiter later told me it may have been a female and those were the eggs. Not good at all and the smell was horrible. Steak was cook well.
The waiter tells me later that they could de-shell next time. I recommended they make that recommendation upon placing order.
