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.

This was my second time at Cafe Pacific and it was a lot different than the 1st time. The service was not good and there must have been a new chef in the kitchen because everything we ordered lacked seasoning. I was really looking forward to getting one of my favorite desserts of all time but I was too disappointed in my main entree to order it. I feared being let down. I may give this place another chance but it won’t be anytime soon.

It was an unalloyed pleasure to return to Cafe Pacific after a Covid-forced absence. We were continually reminded of all the fine old touches that make this such a beautiful restaurant. We were welcomed by the staff like long-lost friends. Our shrimp, salmon, and sole were all as good as we remembered. We hope to return soon and often.

Very slow. We ended up spending over 2 hours at the restaurant

Bad service. Not sure what was going on but there may have been a language barrier. Waiter (says Fernando on my receipt) messed up on a handful of orders. Had to fix my bill twice

Overpriced food. Appetizers and desserts were okay but the entrees were quite disappointing. Further, the menu advertised online was not provided at the restaurant. We had to settle for an “abbreviated menu”

We celebrated our anniversary on the patio and it was terrific. It was very private yet we could still see the lights of highland park village. Food was outstanding, as was service. Great place for a special night out.

We celebrated my wife's 60th birthday with dinner on their new patio area. The food was outstanding, service was great, and Dieter and Executive chef Terry (a friend of ours) continuously checked to see that the evening was going well. Cafe Pacific remains a wonderful destination for special events.
