Cafe Pacific Ratings and Reviews

We made a point of telling the hostess that I was celebrating a birthday. She could not have cared less and at no point in the evening was the occasion acknowledged. There are many fine restaurants in Dallas. I strongly suggest that if you are celebrating a special occasion that you not choose this restaurant. We were very disappointed.

All the food was very, very good.I would have rated the place much higher except after we were seated we waited quite a long time for a waiter. Many walked right by us but near stopped. Then from across the restaurant this waiter named Mark sees we are just sitting there and comes over. After talking with us he goes for a manager and then comes back and says I'll take care of you and he did - he was excellent .
This is a really nice place - to nice for this kind of gaff.

I have been dining at Cafe Pacific for many years and it is one of the best and most consistant restaurants not only in the Dallas area ..but anywhere...great food,ambience,service and they will celebrate with you if you ask them to..

Truly an iconic classic in the Dallas restaurant scene... not to be missed! Great seafood... and awesome steaks for date night! Definitely an older crowd but don't let that deter you! The lump crab cakes are always excellent to start with... my date had and shared the onion crusted sea bass with me... beware it's a huge portion! I shared my peeper crusted filet in cognac sauce with her... augmented our dinners with the twice baked and grilled mushrooms... no way we could finish let alone even consider dessert! It always seems to be a few years before I go back... but over 30 years now is a testament to great service and good food!

Dinner at Café Pacific is outstanding as ever. The service, the attention to detail, the ambience and the food, are all impeccable! Considering the longevity this restaurant has been around, it is still a favorite of ours. We are not locals, but it is such a treat to dine there when we are in town. I would highly recommend this jewel of a restaurant to anyone! Thank you for an incredible gastronomic experience!

Everything was excellent, which was not a surprise after several visits. But the outstanding part of the evening was out server, Olivia. She is bright, charming and became a part of our evening without being intrusive at all.

My first impression was that it was wonderful being back in the 50's again when service, atmosphere, charm, and courtesy was so important to fine dining. We were greeted immediately and our seated promptly and our server introduced himself within two minutes of our seating. Our drinks were served promptly. All items on the menu sounded appealing, but all four in our party stayed with the Restaurant Menu. Our waiter answered all questions and all enjoyed our meal. Most importantly, we all could converse pleasantly without yelling.
This will definitely be a popular spot to visit on a regular basis.

We loved celebrating our 47th wedding anniversary at this lovely spot. The food was delicious on the "Restaurant Week" menu, our waiter, though a bit harried, was good, and we got a table for 4 just to give us some extra room. The decor is conducive to talking and elegant without being kitschy or over done.

I always love to have my birthday dinner here. Cafe Pacific is superb always. Food, atmosphere and service alike. We also make it a point to have dinner (among other times as well) during the holidays. It's decorated so beautifully. If we lived closer, we would come a lot more often! But it's definitely worth the 45 minute drive. Thank you again for another memorable evening.

Our meal was delicious, and the service was impeccable! The menu choices could appeal to just about anyone! We especially appreciated the "celebratory" dessert, as we were celebrating two guests birthdays! Cafe Pacific is our "go to" place for all events worth celebrating! Our sincere thanks to the entire staff.

The experience was adequate, but I don't think we'll be returning. The food was decent, but not for the prices. The main course of seafood paella came out lukewarm and the meat slightly overcooked. There was a bit of confusion on drinks that were ordered as well, with a sidecar served with ice and a sugar rim which is definitely not traditional and not a great way to enjoy that drink.

Best fried calamari ever. so tender, yet perfectly brown and crisp. Wedge salad always good. Onion Crusted Sea Bass very nice. Sole almondine either lacked almonds, or they were ground up as a crust, and very over cooked. Pecan Ball was a favorite as always with the most wonderful almond cookie/candy/butter brittle.
