Cafe Pacific Ratings and Reviews
We were celebrating our son's graduation from college, 8 people. All adults and one very well behaved 5 yr old.
Our server abandoned us halfway through dinner. We had to refill our own wine. Dishes were finished and not removed. The table next to us left because it took so long to get their entrees.
Maybe she was having a bad day, but it was a celebration for us.
Great for lunch! Have never been there for dinner, but I'm sure it's great. The food is always amazing. All quality. And the people are so polite and professional. Just love it. Crab Louie salad is loaded with large lump crab! All the fish plates are perfectly cooked. Just go!!! Everything I've had was great!
This was my first time, but my wife and daughter had dined at Cafe Pacific before. The food was great and our server, Mark, was smooth and efficient. One thing that stood out was that if another waiter notice you needed a drink refill, they didn't hesitate to ask what you were drinking and it would magically appear shortly thereafter. The crew seemed to work well together which is always nice to see. Not cheap, but if you want great food, expertly prepared and served well...you pay for it.
It's hard to believe we had not dined here, having heard about it for so many years, and we were not disappointed. As sometimes happens, one of our orders was wrong due to a miscommunication between diner and server. That was not a problem, but it took a good while for the correct order to arrive. When we mentioned the delay, the manager showed up with apologies and desserts for the table, which more than made up for the inconvenience. And that was consistent with the attention we received all evening. It was like the way dining at nice restaurants used to be - or the way I seem to remember it. Also, for such a nice place I expected an extravagant wine list, but I was very pleasantly surprised by the reasonable selections, and the moderate number of wines - not a 10 lb tome's worth. The food was very well executed, and it seemed all the better in light of the service and atmosphere. We will return soon.
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).
