Pacifico - New Haven, CT
Dinner Sunday - Thursday: 3:00pm- 10:00pm, Friday & Saturday: 3:00pm - 11:00pm
Great food. Great service. My favorite place in New Haven.
Great food, pomegranate sangria awesome. The burrata was really nicely complemented by the tomatillo, the fish tacos were outstanding. Short rib empanada delicious, and the pork belly had a sweet yet spicy accompanying relish that really accented the flavor!
Food was excellent. We went for an early dinner so it was very quiet at that time. Service was excellent, staff was friendly and welcoming. Would definitely recommend.
The food was good - we ordered small plates thinking we would get more than one round of dishes. Unfortunately, the first order took so long that we weren't able to get anything else. We left hungry and wishing we had more.
This place is buzzing with lots of working professionals. I went with a group of coworkers and was served a variety of tapas. The food is Amazing. They bring you 2 to 3 courses to share at a time. Great service. Definitely recommend.
Consistently excellent for years. Food is delicious and menu has a wide range. Wine selection is lovely, sangria is very good. Bacon wrapped dates, shrimp in garlic oil and chicken entree (I never order chicken anywhere else) are top favorites. The staff is friendly and service is on point. Some of the staff had been there for years and greet repeat customers warmly which is a plus. The GM Walter is professional and friendly. I love this place! Best Spanish tapas in New Haven without question!
We had party of 5. Was perfect not too noisey great for conversation, food was great and a fair price. I would recommend this place and will be back.
Loved our food, loved the ambiance. Very warm interior, we had a tabl3 overlooking the street. Could not think of a better way to end a fun day of shopping and theater in New Haven. Great cocktails also.
Amazing place! It was a last-minute find for a Friday night outing with friends. Relied on lots of positive reviews and gave it a shot. And all of us really enjoyed it!!! Will definitely come back and recommend to friends!!! Tasty flavorful food, delicious cocktails, great service, cozy ambiance. Great place for a date or a night out with a group of friends. Totally recommend
Amazing tapas! Everything we had was delicious! Lovely wine too and very attentive, friendly staff.
Food was great, music was a little loud but great service
Had a very enjoyable evening on Saturday. Food was very good and had fun trying many tapas plates. Waiter was pkeasant and attentive and did not make us feel rushed. Very relaxing and will go again.
I had a variety of tapas and enjoyed them all (pork belly is a must have.) Service was amazing from when I entered until I walked out the door. I will definitely come back for more.
Very busy evening as it was the last Evening of Restaurant Week.
We were running a bit late due to traffic and the weather but I had called ahead and we were seated promptly.
Good Food & Better Service...
Went for restaurant week and everything was prepared beautifully and tasted amazing. I highly recommend going for dinner
Great restaurant week lunch!
They need MUCH better ventilation. My nasal passages were plugged from the time entered until I left. The blue smoke was visible coming down the stairs from the 2nd floor dining room. It's been two days and my coat still reeks of burned food smoke.
The soup was delicious but the “fajitas” were basically a bowl of white rice with a few strips of steak, some onions and a tiny bit of pico de gaio(?). It was totally dry and did not look like others I have had at all.
My friend and I are both new to the area and gave Restaurant Week a try. The server was very attentive and helpful. The food was tasty and appropriately portioned. The ambience was pleasant and we would definitely come back!
I expect in this special week have more seafood dishes. It was just asinine.
John was a great waiter, very friendly. The churrasco was very well made - hefty portions, we had to take to-go boxes.
the restaurant was busy but incredibly attentive. the rest of the customers were so friendly despite some of the wait. it was such a welcoming and service-driven experience. and the food was absolutely top notch. the level of service and quality was above and beyond.
Food was great. Service impeccable
Flies and some kind of 100 leg bugs crawled across the table. Over cooked and dry food had to be sent back. Would not recommend.
The churros in this place took me back to my childhood years! They were SO GOOD!! The waitress was so great, everything you would ask for in a waitress. She was accommodating, funny, polite, and she made the best recommendations!
We were a party of 5 & and 3 were disappointed with the meal for the value. Appetizers were very good.
Delicious food and even better service. The service was impeccable! Came here with my brother for a nice sit down and were amazing with the food. Everything we ordered was cooked to perfection and the staff helped make the experience even better. You can tell that they put a ton of time and effort into training their team to work meticulously. The manager recommend us a couple of new amazing drinks from their new cocktail menu made with mescal awesome recommendation!
Fun, lively, and incredibly fresh food. Loud at night, so go for an energetic evening. Our server was wonderful!
The menu, particularly the specials, was wonderful. Our server was knowledgeable and enthusiastic in his recommendations. We asked for substitutions of the accompaniments and the kitchen graciously accommodated. I had not been to Pacifico in some time, but I will not let that much time elapse again.
Had tapas and Sangria. Everything was delicious and the service was top notch!
As always, superb. I've reviewed Pacifico before... always positively!
Easy reservation. We were a party of 5 and seated at a window seat. Food was delicious! Service was great. We will definitely visit again.
Food def wasn’t the best at all & all 4 of us in our party thought so. The lomo Saltado doesn’t even compare taste wise to a Peruvian Restaruant & the salmon wasn’t good as well. I also requested that they put a candle on the desert when it is ordered (twice via the reservation & when I came in person before everyone as else)....they still forgot to do it 👍
I love Pacifico I would recommend it to anybody this time I brought for friends who had never been there they have joined me and loving Pacifico.
I went with a group of 7 for a birthday lunch. Had a great experience. Service was good and friendly. Everyone really enjoyed their meal.
The Caramelized Salmon was one of the best Salmon dishes I’ve had. Our waiter was attentive, fun and personal. Overall a very nice experience. I would definitely recommend it and I will return.
After years of noticing a long decline in service and food quality at Pacifico, we were surprised last winter when we went with friends and had a nice meal. Thinking that the restaurant was rebounding, we went there for my wife's birthday dinner. Unfortunately, last winter's visit was the abnormality. This time, the service was so-so and the food was uninspired. Large chunks of avocado in guacamole with brown spots, soggy cauliflower, mediocre calamari, etc. The only bright spot was the duck quesadilla, which was tasty despite being a bit on the soggy side.
Went for pre-show dinner and was fairly underwhelmed. Haphazard service and under-seasoned food plus a fairly depressing ambiance. Nothing special and feel like there are better options in the area.
We had a fantastic experience here, grabbing a bite before a show at the Music Hall. The place is both cozy and lively, and even though they were short-staffed, they never missed a beat. Our server Manny suggested some great dishes (try the dates!) and we left feeling very satisfied. 5 stars on the food, but some things are pretty basic--basic is great, when done right--and nothing fell short, in my opinion. We agreed we'll go back!
I took my mother in law and aunt visiting from out of town for a late breakfast/brunch time meal. I have never been to Pacifico and I was really hoping it would meet everyone's expectation! I can say it really did. The food delicious and the service on point. I was also on Whole 30 and could find plenty of options to eat!
