Cafe Pacific Ratings and Reviews
This is a wel established restaurant in Higland Park Village. Everything about it was special -- the food, the wine, the service, and the atmosphere. We met friends for a catch up dinner and it was easy to talk and hear everyone. Reservations are accepted 30 days out, so plan early. It books up fast but is well worth it!!
We have been coming to Cafe Pacific for years. It has always been our special place - an oasis of civilized dining and superb food. This trip was short of the mark. While still civilized, the menu is stale, even the specials were mundane. The sole was so encrusted you lost the delicacy of the fish. The waitstaff we had to track down for dessert and check. Still the best martini in town though!
My husband and I went to Cafe Pacific to celebrate my birthday. We love the traditional decor of the interior: dark wood, beveled glass, and the classic black-and-white marble checkerboard floor. Our greeting by the hostess and Maitre d'Hotel was very warm and engaging.
My husband's split pea soup was very good; my butter lettuce salad disappointing: the lettuce was not as crunchy fresh and the whole salad was not as tasty as it should have been.
I had the daily special red snapper topped with lump crab meat, asparagus, and Hollandaise sauce, which was excellent. He had the fillet of sole, which he liked a lot.
Since it was my birthday, we were served a complimentary delicious vanilla ice cream dessert with chocolate sauce and almond praline, which was delicious.
We were impressed with the reasonable prices on the nice wine list. I would have appreciated more choices from domestic producers; most of the wine was French (which of course is always reliably good).
We stopped in on our way home for a late lunch. We were both a little tired and a lot hungry. After the waiter seems to all over us to order we wait and waited for our food to arrive. The waiter was no where in site. When the food arrived mine was lukewarm at best and my wife's cold. By then we were really hungry so we said nothing and just ate it. About a third of the way through the waiter comes over reaches for my plate and asks if I want him to box up the rest. After we were done the waiter comes over laughing saying "I never thought you would finish that". You make us wait and wait for cold food, you try and take it way before we are done and then you make fun of us for eating it? You have a very nice play but your wait staff leaves a lot to be desired. We won't be back.
The level of service provided at Cafe Pacific was second-to-none! I had requested a special table, the finest server, along with special accommodations awaiting upon arrival. All were completed beyond excellence resulting in a once in a lifetime experience! I recommend Cafe Pacific to anyone looking for a great atmosphere with phenomenal food and incredible service!
We had a 830 pm reservations and got seated at 910 pm. The General Manager just bumped us for people he knew and then seated us next to the kitchen. He realized we were very irritated and brought us complimentary calamari, but the evening was partially ruined anyway. That said, John, the bartender was great and so was the rest of service staff. Food was awesome.
Very disappointed with our servicer, Julia M. Had to ask the maitre'd to have our bottle of wine sent to our table. Then had to ask to have our waitress return to our table to take our dinner order. She claimed that our dessert was complimentary but we were charged. To make matters worse we had brought another couple who had not been there before.
Classic institution always outstanding. Upscale French bistro style with excellent fresh fish options. Pepper steak frites is superb as well. Polished, professional and very warm service from long tenured servers - a rarity in today's trendy dining scene where hipsters with attitude are prevalent. Another bonus - the wine list is surprisingly affordable and approachable considering the quality of the restaurant. A long established restaurant with a proven track record and excellent pedigree.
Primo. Very classic and elegant atmosphere. Traditional white linen type service. Waitstaff right on cue with service. Pleasant and helpful. Food was delish, beautifully prepared and plated. Nice menu with offerings for those who want to splurge on some gourmet calories and those who are watching their weight. I had the grilled salmon with tomato basil sauce and asparagus--it was perfectly cooked. We left very happy. Will definitely go back the next time we're in town.
