Wonderful Dining Experience
I had dinner with a friend at Pazo for Restaurant Week, the menu for restaurant week had an excellent variety of options. The chorizo and croquetas tapas were delicious, the pork shoulder was tender and juicy (and well complimented with the potato purée). The service was helpful, carefully responding to questions we had, and provided plenty of time for us to enjoy each course. The only negative was that the restaurant was quite loud, but this may have been a function of being a Saturday during restaurant week.

Restaurant Week Dinner
I was slightly unimpressed by the restaurant week menu, but overall enjoyed my experience at Pazo. I've eaten here many times and the combination of ambiance, service, and amazing drinks make me always leave satisfied. I find the food to be somewhat simple and unimaginative and the restaurant week menu was especially so. Despite that, Pazo is a great place to enjoy good, simple food, great wine and cocktails, and historic architecture.

Pazo is a superb restaurant with great food and service! Our waiter was fantastic and recommended wonderful dishes for us to eat!

Don't miss it
This is my favorite restaurant in all of Baltimore. Since we moved from Baltimore in 2006 we go back at least once a year and make sure to eat at Pazo. We even considered getting married there even though we live in Charlottesville, Va. The food, ambience, and prices are always perfect.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Every time we eat at Pazo we have a fantastic experience. The food is excellent-we've never had something we didn't like. We always have a bunch of tapas and get to try a large variety of food. The atmosphere is great, too.

This is a really special place. The food and the atmosphere are quite unique. Don't miss it.

Great Birthday Celebration
A tapas menu in a lovely atmosphere was a perfect way to celebrate our daughter's 18th birthday with the family. Thanks to the waitstaff and kitchen for making the evening memorable!

The food was excellent ! ...loved the empanadas, service was super, special thanks to Collin, he was our waiter and was very very attentive. My wife order a whole fish, but Colin offered to slice it, fillet for her, Collin was an expert and knew which wine to order with our meal. Out table had a great view of the chef ordering the food and making sure all was done on time and right, had a chance to talk to Mario, and gave him my appreciation of how well he was managing the kitchen. We were very impressed with this restaurant, only had one experience like this in New York, but this had to be the best experience so far.

Great restaurant if you love
Great restaurant if you love food and trying different takes on entrees. The restaurant itself is a great spot with great atmosphere. The chefs menu is a good way to try a broad range of items at a decent price point.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
All I can say is WOW! What a great find my husband and I were given a gift certificate at Christmas and decided to use it for our Anniversary, from the time we walked in the door until the time we left we were catered to. The staff was outstanding and I wish I could have remembered our waiters name He was awesome. The food he suggested tasted even better than he described. We will be back.

Birthday dinner for two
The food was excellent and the entire staff - from the bartender to the bussers - was very knowledgeable of the fare. This was a birthday dinner, which I indicated at the time I made the reservation, and the hostess that greeted us wished a happy birthday as did our server. With the dessert, they added two candles to the plate. It was perfectly understated - a simple yet effective acknowledgement without the over-the-top singing by the entire staff. We decided to dine "tapas" style. I highly recommend the skirt steak - superb! The trio of chocolate for dessert was fantastic.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pazo is always truly fabulous
The tapas plates were each absolutely delicious; we had superb service; we loved our Table 2 on the main level. This really is my favorite restaurant. Being a vegetarian, I really appreciate all the vegetarian options, which many other restaurants seem to have abandoned in recent years.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Server & Manager were extremely pushy for us to order the chefs menu. When we didn't they insisted they pick the amount to order of the items we wanted despite our clear expression against it. Was a slow night, so server hovered over our table constantly pushing for additional food, yet one of my party members sat with an empty drink for almost an hour before he was prompted for another. I have been here once before and had an excellent experience, but this time was par at best mainly due to pushy management and waiters. I'll give Pazo another try in another year or two, hopefully the experience will be better.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
We always enjoy our meals here, but it seems to take a little while for the food to get going, then once it does it comes fast. Be ready!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great looking restaurant inside - set on the edge of an old neighborhood. Service is outstanding - mostly couples or small groups dining in the open spaces. Can get expensive - good for small special occasions.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place is beautiful and the food (though pricy) is amazingly good. The wait staff is also excellent. It was hard to choose one of their amazing wines or one of the fabulous cocktails.
PS: Get the FISH!
9/7/2013 5:00:00 PM
I am bias because this is my favorite restaurant!! The ambience is amazing. I love tapas and everything was spectacular. YOU MUST TRY THE MOSCATO WITH THE ROSE PETAL IN IT!!!!!!!
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great room, dynamic, interesting and energetic. But every time I go I expect better from the food than I get. I just find the preparation to be uninspiring. If you want a very cool place to hang out, look at Baltimore's "beautiful people" and enjoy a great ambiance, Pazo is for you. But if it's all about the food, you can do better.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome Night after a Ravens Win!
Great night out with friends. Very knowledgeable wait staff, interesting and delicious food, great specialty bar drinks (make sure to try the Mojito with bar-made apple syrup). Recommended for all.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
our favorite restaurant in Baltimor
Pazo has it all, style, elegance, beautiful (and friendly) people right down to the valet,, and best of all, a great kitchen. We take out-of-towners here whenever we are hosting guests. Truly the best of the city. It doesn't get old.

We started with tapas and
We started with tapas and were impressed with the many unique and delicious dishes but we were still hungry so we split an entrée - the lamb - it was also excellent. It was a bit pricey but worth it for a special night out
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent with a hitch.
A superb dining experience slightly marred by an inexplicably long wait between courses. Servers (not the host) need to speak above the overal noise of the restaurant as well. Still, would recommend.

The food is very very good. The service is very attentive, perhaps too much so.

What a great place!! I loved their tapas. Highly recommend the tuna tartar.
I went with a friend from out of town and her clients and everyone left very happy.
Their ice cream is also Devine.

Never Fails to Pleased
My wife and I have been dining at Pazo regularly for several years and the place never fails to meet our expectations. The food is creative and well presented. The changing menu gives the diner an opportuity to try new dishes while some old classics remain on the menu continuously. The service is always attentive and friendly. The serving staff knowledgeable. The wine list is outstanding with several wines very reasonably priced.

Absolutely a great experience from the moment we walked in to the door. Had a group of people and the host could have been more accomadatting, our service Claudia was knowledgable, polite and professional! We let the chef choose are dishes and they were spot on and listened to some special requests. Strongly recommend and will return.

Enjoyed the food. I did feel
Enjoyed the food. I did feel like the waitress was a little pushy. It felt as if she were trying to rush us to finish.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great scene, very good food
Pazo is like walking off the street of downtown Baltimore into a high end New York City restaurant. The crowd and the decor are amazing. The food is very good but a little pricey for what you get. The staff are respectful but I would expect a bit more stylistic flair for such a nice restaurant.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Go to spot for company dinners
Great ambiance, wide variety with vegetarian and vegan options. Not ridiculously expensive.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great date night spot! Lighting is great, food was amazing. Love tapas
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
We arrived early on a Saturday evening so we could enjoy our meal before the restaurant got crowded and noisy. We took out-of-town guests who also enjoyed sampling an assortment of tapas. Each dish was bursting with flavor and was a delight to eat. Pazo is definitely one of our favorite Baltimore restaurants.
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
GREAT VIBE, SERVICE, SMALL PLATES
Short and simple:
GOOD - Ambiance, decor, service.
BAD - Bar service
If you're expecting huge plates, lots of food....this isn't the place for you. My girlfriend an I were fine with it since we don't enjoy being stuffed after dinner.
Tuna tartar - Great
Bristek - VERY small but good
Pizza - Excellent
After dinner we asked our server for recommendation on Sherry. Very knowledgeable on different Sherry's available and made a wonderful recommendation. A very pleasant evening. Our service was excellent. I'm a hard grader on service and I could not have been more pleased. Also liked the music playing which just added to the already great ambiance.

this was my second time at pazo and the experience was delightful as always. the service is outstanding and well paced. the food is delicious.

Epic Flavors throughout..
Started with a few drinks then some appetizers to include a roasted red pepper Bruschetta, 3 orders of Tuna Tartar, and calamari. All with excellent flavor but the Calamari, was a bit chewy inherent nature? Then we received our main courses. Foie gras cooked well done as asked, had a flavor that was so amazing, the first bit brought notions of bacon to mind, yet there was none to be found....Mmmm? I had a flank steak asked for medium trusting the waiter...came out bloody, wasn't pleased, but the rest of the night ended fine. just not what I asked for til that point. no desert, enjoyed a margarita and a Mojito and left.

Tops for Tapas
A group of seven came to Pazo while attending a convention. We began the evening in the luxurious bar drinking a variety of Spanish wines. Dinner began with an assortment of tapas with a modern American flavor followed by several wonderful main dishes,including monkfish, beef, and chicken. Service was very helpful, making some excellent suggestions on starters and wine pairings.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
After being open for several years now, Pazo is still my choice for a special outing. It is a great alternative to the high-end steak houses. Much cooler vibe, amazing bar scene, beautiful interior, and small plates, so you don't find yourself stuffed at the end of the night. Not cheap enough for daily dining, but well worth it for a special occasion.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, and great wine!
Simply outstanding. Listen to the wait staff for the best food options and the wine suggestions.
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Another great meal at Pazo
Went as a couple and started at the bar, then moved to a table. Service was very good and made helpful suggestions about selecting between small plates, salads, sides, and entrees. Everything we had was excellent, especially the seasonal, local ingredients in the arugula salad to the pear tart.
The noise level (it was a Tuesday night, early-ish) was surprisingly good for such an open space. We had no trouble talking across the table or at the bar.
The decor and the space are just lovely. I would go back with a date or with a group (they have group seating in a large loungy area) without hesitation.
10/28/2013 5:00:00 PM
Excellent food, uniquely prepared and beautifully presented.
Exquisite atmosphere. Wonderful service. One of my favorites restaurants.
