    I would certainly recomend someone to try this once but it's up to you after that. I think cocktails and apps are best. The service was decent, but I wouldn't say phenomenal. The food was about the same. I would say it was a bit pricey for an average experience.

    First time dining at Pacifico and the food was very good. The fried oyster and calamari small plates are a must try, even for those who don't usually like oysters. The paella was fresh and loaded with seafood...plenty of food on its own. Our server was very knowlegeable and catered to our every need. We did get one dessert, the flourless chocolate cake, which left a little to be desired. Overall, a really good meal.

    My husband and I had a great time last night! We sat at the bar for happy hour and had an amazing time. The bartender was hilarious and really made us feel welcome! The portion sizes of the happy hour apps were just enough and the mojitos were to die for! I've never had one quite as good anywhere else. As we got ready to wrap things up the bartender actually came around from behind the bar to shake both of our hands and asked us to come back soon! What a great staff Pacifico has! It was one of he most warm and welcoming places we've been to in a while! Please, if you haven't gone yet, check this place out! You won't be disappointed!

    Looking for brunch that's delicious, without crowds, a little different and yet still get great French toast and pancakes? Here you can make reservations and eat a delicious brunch and even order some of their wonderful tapa plates to ease you into the lunch part of "brunch". Very attentive and friendly service. Live music was starting about 1:00 pm. Love the colorful ambiance. A nice surprise!

    I was excited to go to Pacifico and looking forward to trying some authentic food. The experience was dismal to say the least. First off the place was almost empty and they still did not have our table ready when we got there. There was to many sloppy bums littering the restaurant. That was a real buzz kill. The food was even more dismal from dull fish tacos to under seasoned entrees. My wine tasted flat and dull and the place was so noisy I could not hear myself speaking. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. The only good thing I can say was the service from our waiter, I think his name was Miguel, was excellent. He should find a job at a better restaurant.

    First let me say Miguel was out of this world! The food and drink selection was sufficient without being overwhelming - the overall food quality was good to very good and the prices were reasonable for the location. I did find the noise level to be a little loud but that added to the intimacy of the dinner - it might have been a challenge if there were four people trying to engage in a conversation but for two it was fine.

    I usually love eating here. The "usually awesome" guacamole was terrible this time. The avocado slices weren't quite ripe yet, it wasn't mixed together at all ("deconstructed guac?"), and once me mashed it together it had no flavor. Needed salt, lime, and spices. BIG let down. Waiter messed up my order (bringing wrong starch), but the fixed it. Medium rare burger was over cooked. Usually have great food here, but this was a really bad experience this time. : (

    It was both my boyfriend and I's first time at the restaurant, I choose that place after going back and fourth in my head with different options. It was his birthday I wanted to take him some place nice. We both enjoyed it there very much and the food was very good. Cocktails are a little pricey and so is the food but it's a good place for a nice dinner. The restaurant was quiet we were the only people there ( I'm sure it's because it was a Tuesday) however we enjoyed it. I would recommend Pacifico to a friend and plan on going back!

    Lovely decor. Fantastic service. Boring food. Salad was excellent. The main course was inedible. When it re-appeared (chicken) it was hot but tasteless. Not a drop of salt or pepper. No seasoning at all. And the mashed potatoes win the award for the worst ever. Again no salt nor pepper. This is not a cheap restaurant. They should be ashamed of themselves. The manager argued with me when I sent back the main course because it wasn't hot. Also not a good thing. I will never go back there.

    We've often eaten here as their food is always well prepared and served, and it is a nice change from the standard Lehigh Valley fare. Especially liked is their double serving of Pacifico Paella, a good bargain with plenty for two people. Nice and convenient to the Promenade Shops for a casual stroll after a big meal.

    Lovely atmosphere, attentive waiter and busboy, terrific sangria and delicious guacamole appetizer. Main course food presentation was fantastic, but flavor of lobster quesadilla was just ok. I felt the same way about the Ensalada de Remolacha, although I enjoyed that more than the quesadilla. A feast for the eyes, but not always the palate. If I return I'll try something different and update my review accordingly.
