It was excellent. I boughtIt was excellent. I bought the Chef's cook book... Fiesta Latina. It has a lot of the recipes from their menu in it. Awesome!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious LunchWe had the prix fixe lunch and everything was delicious! Shrimp and Corn Chowder, skirt steak empanada, duck quesadilla and steak sandwich. No complaints at all!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place in New Haven for groupWent on a Monday so it was quiet, need to see what it is like on the weekends. Service was very good, our waitress was pleasant and attending but lacked a spark so I can't give an excellent rating. Servers and bus crew were amazing. Food was excellent, we ordered a few tapas, drinks and desserts. Highly recommend mojitos, margaritas, guacamole and duck quesadillas.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall experience was greatOverall experience was great - Excellent place to eat before a show, we will definitely go back! For apps - the duck quesadilla was outstanding and the tuna tacos were small but delicious. Ceviche was pretty standard (good but nothing to write home about). For dinner - Currasco was amazing but the and the Camarones y Vieras was the best dish of the night - WOW. Service was good, only reason I put a 4 instead of a 5 was we had to ask for the bill twice (we were running off to a show and needed to leave quickly).5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food overall was veryThe food overall was very good, though the Gambas al Ajillo was served more in a broth than the usual garlic laced olive oil that it the shrimp were sautéed in. There this was a very insipid dish. The other dishes were good and we would go back again.
The ambiance was just right…not too much noise, but enough to make it interesting. Great colors on the walls.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had the duck quesadillaWe had the duck quesadilla and sirloin empanadas as appetizers - both were delicious. Then we had the pork tenderloin, which was very good (didn't blow me away, but still enjoyable), and the vegetarian paella, which was just okay - too many vegetables proportionately to the rice. Overall, though, a very good experience, and we will certainly be return in the future.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBrought a friend from outBrought a friend from out of state here this past weekend.

Special Restaurant Week fixed price menu had some diverse choices, with the exception of desserts. Servers were friendly and helpful.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe dined on a Tuesday nightWe dined on a Tuesday night during restaurant week. It was a 3 course prix fix for $32. Lots of choices, something for everyone. Our table ordered crab croquettes and quesadillas for our apps-delicious! Entrees ordered were honey glazed salmon, seafood paella and bacon wrapped pork tenderloin-also excellent! You will not be disappointed at this restaurant.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMI would recommended PacificoI would recommended Pacifico to others on certain conditions. The tapas portion was very small -as it is supposed to be- but too small for the price. As an entree, I ordered the paella palomino which was excellent and able to be shared with another diner. The service was excellent, fast, and was very accomodating for special requests. If it weren't for the cost of the food and drinks (happy hour is only at the bar) I would try it again, but too expensive for this place to be on my regular list.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceI have already started recommending Pacifico to all of my friends in the New Haven area. The food looked like a work of art and everything my group ordered was fantastic. The inside was vibrant and inviting, and all of the people who helped my group were friendly. I hope to be back again!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was very good. ServiceFood was very good. Service almost too much. Our waiter checked in a few too many times. He seemed very concerned that our food wasn't arriving faster, we were not.A bit too noisy for me, we were there for dinner but also to catch up. It was hard to hear.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was all very fresh andFood was all very fresh and well-prepared. Dressing on the salad with dried cherries was especially tasty. Forgettable table bread.12/21/2012 12:00:00 AM
