We eat here often and it has always been a great experience. But the last two times we were put in a corner by the speaker. It feels as if they forget us. Our drinks took forever, and we waited 45 minutes for our appetizer only to get our meal five minutes later. We were seated right by the speaker which played techno music that was more appropriate for a club rather than soothing for dinner. I’m sure we will continue to go because the food and the environment are phenomenal, but I feel they need to readjust now that summer is here and they are overly busy.

Our waiter John tempted us with Palomino's Paella and tasty Tapas. His personability and knowledge was engaging. The outdoor ambience was rustic. The food was decorative and delicious!

Best dish was the Ceviche - four shrimp, a little spicy and a little sweet. Guac was freshly made and good, although the homemade chips could've used a more salt. Crabcakes were decent, - careful if you're sharing the tapas. We ordered one to share, got two and were billed for two, so specify how many when you order. The steak tacos were unremarkable and a bit bland. Maitre 'd offered some tobasco sauce when they arrived, we quickly found out why! Blood orange margaritas were very good! We would go back but sit downstairs where it's more casual for apps & drinks.

The food was excellent but service was poor. As soon as the waiter learned we were using a Groupon his service level stopped. He wasn’t a bad waiter as I watched him with other tables, he was attentive to all others. Even with the Groupon I would normally have tipped highly- more than I would for a regular paid meal because I had already saved money. With the lack of service, that didn’t happen.

Quickly becoming one of our favorites - love the many small plate options - Pork Belly is outstanding, Fish Tacos- very tasty, Short Rib Empanadas - excellent....and I have to figure out how to make the vinaigrette on the beet salad....delish!!!

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.

Start with a pitcher of sangria. Order at least two appetizers. Remember to leave room for the house made desserts.

My daughter’s 21st Birthday celebration could not have been better! From the PERFECT server Oscar (and team!) to the prompt hot, delicious meals, Pacifico truly rose to the occasion!! Best feeling in the world, when you spend a significant amount of money and come away with such high value and a great memory! Thank you for a wonderful (and covid-safe!) experience.

Dinner was delicious however very expensive considering the entrees are extremely small. I had the shrimp and scallops over raviolis (only 2 small ones) My husband had the salmon dish served only with kale. The jumbo crab cake was the size of a golf ball. I would go back for appetizers and drinks not for the entrees.

Nice atmosphere. Not too loud. Not too quiet. Service was great...almost too quick as we were in and out in just over an hour. tables were divided with plexiglass and food service and hosts were all masked. Apps and drinks were great. Entrees were good. Well presented but could have used a bit more seasoning.

We dined on the second floor of the restaurant. It was very cold and uncomfortable, compared to the first floor dining area. My date and I were tempted to wear our coats but we didn’t want to look awkward. Otherwise, the food was great as always. The restaurant was very clean and has taken many precautions for COVID-19 safety. The service was fast and consistent.
