An institution in Dallas dining for over 40 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.

Proper Dress Required (No T-Shirts, Shorts or Flip Flops.)

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.

    I've eaten lunch & dinner here many times. The food is always good. Service is usually good, as it was this time. My only criticism is that my guest this time uses an electric mobility chair & the table assigned to us was not accessible. I had to ask the staff to move the table & chairs far enough out of the way so the electric chair could be driven up to the table.

    This was not a relaxing dining experience. It was very intense from the moment we walked in. Our table wasn’t ready and even though there were many empty tables, they would not seat us. Once the waiter came, the first thing he mentioned was the tip before he even asked what we wanted to drink. The waiter was aggressive and greedy the entire time. Way too pushy trying to get us to order the whole menu. Every employee we encountered was intense and loud. It was also a very noisy place. Too pricey for the portion size and the atmosphere. The whole experience wasn’t good.

    Service was light and fun but, in the end, strangely paced. We felt kind of rushed on arrival (we did have an 8pm reservation), then we had to wait long for dessert and check -when it seemed for awhile that everyone had disappeared from the establishment except for us. Loved the food. All spectacular. Do miss the ceviche, sweet potato fries, and dessert menu of yore. But all of the new offerings are fantastic. For key lime pie-lovers, Key lime tart is not tart, but more sweetened condensed milk- forward. If you want tart key lime, head across the street to Bistro 31.
