The food here is absolutely fantastic! I highly recommend the queso fundido, and the Fish tacos. Their drinks menu is top notch and super diverse - lots of options for everyone’s preference. Our server Rafat was super attentive! Definitely coming back here every time we are in New Haven.

Our waiter was fantastic and the food was superb. We ordered the queso fundido as our starter and scallops for our main dish. The scallops came on top of corn tomatoes and lobster ravioli pand were cooked to perfection. We can’t wait to come back!

Probably one of the fanciest places I've been for dinner in New Haven area. We were here with some clients and wanted to treat them to some fine dining. Service, setup, ambiance, etc. is all absolutely fantastic. Look no further if you want to treat your customers to some fancy dining and hope you get their business! Excellent food too!

The food at this place was SUPER on POINT. I just ate the best paella I have ever had from a restaurant. The app we had was pork belly and jam. They were devoured before a picture could have been taken. I'm definitely coming back to try other things on their menu

Really Awesome food and service. So, I stayed at the Omni Hotel and generally avoid the hotel restaurant in order to see the town. In this case, I GOT LUCKY and decided to eat at Pacifico. A great and flavorful meal with superb wine and service. I am very impressed. Glad to see this restaurant busy during the week as things are bouncing back.

This place is fantastic. Not only great food but the service is unmatched in this town. The pricing on the menu is exact good prices for what you get. Drinks are better than you will get anywhere here. A really good atmosphere. Kid friendly for families that won't make your wallet cry you to sleep after the fact. I highly recommend this establishment for any occasion.

We ate outside at Pacifico this past weekend. The atmosphere was nice and the patio heat lamps were turned on because it was slightly chilly. Our experience was very pleasant and my wife and I enjoyed the food (the grilled shrimp and the beef rib tapas were excellent) and vibe. The tables were nicely spaced and we had no problems with noise, etc. Overall a very nice evening and we will be back.

Pacifico offers a fine dining experience in a variety of color walls and an interestingly designed restaurant. The restaurant was also very accommodating in seating which was much appreciated.

Food was delicious and service was excellent. The guacamole and homemade chips are the best I’ve had and they serve you more chips than you know what to do with. They did a good job maintaining social distance between patrons as well.

Food is amazing, one of my highest ranked restaurants. The atmosphere is very pleasant and the waiters are extremely informative and kind. Expect to drop some money here, but it’s 1000% worth it. We got the raw seafood platter, green mussels, and Shrimp and scallops. Dessert was also delicious, you can taste the quality.
