Cafe Pacific Ratings and Reviews
Dependably delicious. Nestled in Highland Park Village this restaurant has been a fixture for decades. Though in a highbrow setting, I have always felt welcome and valued by the staff.
We let our waiter know we planned on seeing a movie in an hour and he was very diligent in getting our food (and wine) to us in ample time for us to enjoy it. In fact, we came back after the movie for dessert.
We had a delightful time celebrating a friend's birthday. Everyone enjoyed their food; a particular favorite was the Cobb Salad. And of course, you cannot beat the birthday ice cream with chocolate sauce! We appreciated being seated where we could talk, and not being rushed.
Cafe Pacific is a great place to celebrate a birthday. Even at a table for 6, we can actually have a conversation! What a concept!
Sole was lovely, as was lamb chops, & veal chop.
My companions enjoyed the gumbo, but it was too spicy for my palate and didn't seem to have that deep roux flavor I love.
Pecan Ball and fried sweet potato strings are the real reason I go there!
My friend and I met my daughter and granddaughter for lunch. No children's menu. The chef saw us with our little one, came out from the kitchen and asked if the little one would like fruit? Maybe some whip cream? How thoughtful. Waiter was very good, personable. The manager stopped by, has two little boys. The whole experience was delightful, food terrific. We will be back, maybe sans the baby!
There were five of us for lunch (I was the only vegetarian). But the polenta I ordered was lumpy and cool to the touch (not piping hot). And I noticed another guest picked at her food and I asked her if all was ok. She said the lettuce was wilted and the chicken strips were dry and seemed like they had been re-heated - basically things tasted and looked not as fresh as expected. Overall, we were disappointed as our visits previously had been quite good.
Came here for my introduction to Dallas dining and it was phenomenal!
Outstanding and personal. The menu is solid with great seafood and meat offerings. The food was simply beautiful elegantly prepared. Flavorful and deleicate.
Had oysters, lump crab, and ceviche. All outstanding and Day fresh.
Split the special sea bass which I am certain will make it the menu.
The GM and Service was outstanding, attentive and personalized.
5* all around. Elegance abounds and the best is yet to come for this long time mainstay.
Congratulations and continued abundant success!
