    Had an amazing dinner celebrating our wedding anniversary. Our server Jordan was knowledgeable and professional and the rest of the staff were appropriately attending to any other needs. My wife and I both said it’s one of the best meals and special dinners we can remember. The mixed green salad, gumbo, sea bass, and signature pecan roll were all perfect.

    I always enjoy Cafe Pacific, especially the good service and lovely atmosphere. The wait staff are true professionals who never make you feel rushed. It’s a great place to go if you want a nice, unhurried meal. The food is very good, fresh and a lot of options to choose from. It’s nice to have a restaurant that you can always rely on for a good overall experience.

    My wife and I always dine at Pacific Cafe when in Dallas. Oysters were amazing but the service was very spotty. It was rushed which is not the norm there. We needed to speak with an old friend to tell our waitress to slow it down. And before we were done with the oysters the waiter actually removed the platter before we were done! The entrees were great and the Server got the message. The gnocchi with lobster, spinach and truffles were insane. Branzino was delicious too.

    Excellent overall dining experience as usual. The couple we brought were first time attendees. The Rockefeller, clam chowder and crab appetizers great as usual. King salmon and sea bass terrific. Pecan roll and coconut crème desserts outstanding. I have been going here for over 30 years and have never had a subpar meal or subpar service. Our friends were extremely impressed. Top notch - always! Kudos yet again!
