This restaurant seems to be permanently closed. Although we had made a reservation, it was not open, and the website says it has closed as of June 1st.
The food was incredible, the service was excellent
I have been there 3 separate times and each time the food was beautiful, fresh and delicious. Most recently my mother-in-law and I celebrated her birthday with an early dinner. Dinner was fabulous and service was wonderful.
Carnitas tacos and tortilla soup were great,
as always, but $8 for a glass of wine that had barely an inch of wine in the glass was a
ripoff. Service was good,
Food was good - a few misses - not crazy about the octopus nachos (they were good, an interesting dish, but wouldn't order them again) or the tuna tacos (to his credit, the waiter tried to steer me away from those), but the carnitas were excellent and so were the duck taquitos; decent beer selection; hipster-y service. Was surprisingly empty for a Saturday night at 7:30, maybe only 8-10 other people there. Would like to see ABQ support this good local business, especially since it's feels a little by its lonesome there on Lomas and 7th. And they still haven't fixed the wall in the front, but it doesn't interfere with your meal, so you shouldn't let that deter you from going there. Would imagine that the more folks go, the sooner they'll be able to fix it :)
Everything was delicious the salad was too hot I kept coughing
Always love this place. While the food leans to fried, it's tapas, so not like one heavy item. The service is always fabulous - gracious, friendly, well-paced. Second year I've gone for the January birthday special, and Chef Elvis came to our table and made the Plantain Bananas Foster right there. Love this place!
Very unique food options - ended up getting the green chile cheeseburger. Oh Wow - my search is over as this is the best.
Always excellent food, prepared and presented. We enjoy the variety, it's Latin not Mexican food. My wife and I both enjoyed our meal, sampling each other's: I had the Fish Tacos and my wife had a Brazilian fish stew. The staff was available and helpful, suggesting an appropriate beer to go with our order and left us to enjoy our meal when it arrived. The check was a pleasant surprise for the delicious and different food, in a quiet atmosphere.
excellent food and great service. I also appreciate the atmosphere. You can have good conversations with your excellent food!
Excellent tapas. The ceviche was to die for and the elote was delicious. Our server was very attentive as well.
Hmmmmm. What to say...... My wife and I came here on one of our rare nights away from the kiddos. The sparse handful of people there at 6:30 on a Saturday night, foreshadowed the experience to come. Our first encounter with the waiter was "So are you guys ready to order". The waiter seemed like a nice enough young man. Obviously just under-trained. After some prompting he did offer some recommendations on the menu. Sadly, our food was not the best and we left feeling like we had wasted one of our few opportunities at a nice meal together. I'm hoping this was a one-off experience and not the norm.
Great food and fun menu
We always enjoy our visits to Pasion Latin Fusion. The food is imaginative and delicious and the service is friendly and attentive.
Amazing food with interesting complex flavors!
Pasion does not use open table. I was glad they had room for us!
This place had some really nice flavor combinations that made for tapas that my wife and I hadn't tried elsewhere. The spinach goat cheese empanadas were very good. The curry cauliflower with cashews was nice, although it was more Mediterranean than Latin and rather large for a tapas dish, even sharing it between the 2 of us. My wife's favorite was the jalapeno margarita. The crunchy fish tacos encased in banana-chip fusion tortillas was my favorite.
Not far from Old Town, it's convenient to get to and worth trying, especially if you're looking for something a little different from the traditional New Mexico food.
The food was superb. Many menu items were stuff you won't typically expect. The duck taquito was our favorite. Try a portion of the sweet potato chips. Service was friendly and efficient. Highly recommended for a casual meal.
Exceptional flavors and creative dishes. The tapas sound wonderful! We had the banana chip fish tacos which were deliciously crunchy and flavorful. Great happy hour margaritas too!
Different. Guacamole was great. A blending of different cultures
The food is amazing if heavy on fried items. Our group tried just about everything on the tapas menu. The only item that some of us didn't like (and that seemed to all of us to be out of place) was the Moroccan cauliflower. There were several misses with the service, including forgotten orders, an incorrect bill, and difficulty accommodating a gift card. However, the staff was friendly and the food was worth the inconvenience. We will return.
This was not our best experience. We asked the waiter to bring soup first. Instead he brought all our guests food and he ate by himself. When soup came it was lukewarm. We did not say anything because our guest was already finished and we hadn't started.
Great time with kids for lunch, great service and wonderful food!
I bring all my out-of-towners here. This time it was son & his wife, both foodies with SF sophistication (!). They loved it (of course!). Only problem ever at PF is that the food is so wonderful, each dish so unique, the service with just the right pacing, that we all overeat - because no matter how full, we can't pass up the scrumptious desserts :)
Interesting blend of flavors.
Great food and Mitch was a knowledgeable server. Will be back again soon to try more menu items.
This was my second time here but this time we came with friends. We many several tapas which were all delicious. The restaurant is calm and cozy and our server was very attentive. Get the avocado panna cotta for dessert!
This was our second visit to Pasion Fusion because we had had such a great experience the first time. We went for lunch during restaurant week. The food was really good. I had the olive dish for the appetizer, the fish tacos for my entree, and a wonderful chocolate cake for dessert. The fish tacos were delicious and the cake was perfect in that it was really tasty but not too sweet. I did find that the entree was served a little too soon as it came while we were still enjoying the appetizer. The only other negative wasbthat the restaurant week menu was confusing in that the appetizer and dessert were shared items, but this was not described on the menu. Despite the small issues , I would definitely go back.
This is my favorite place in town! I always bring out-of-town friends here. Food is fabulous, and the service is unbelievable - personable, attentive but not intrusive, warm and friendly. Just a gem!
Very unique twist on Latin Food. Nice selection of tapas. Not many entrees but what we had was very good.
Don't get the pitcher of margaritas because it is a rip off. A pitcher only gives you 2 1/4 margaritas for $20. A single margarita costs $6. Do the math and you will see the pitcher falls quite short. The service staff was not on it. More training can be done for them. The place is much better after it was renovated by the FoodTv Network show.
Amazing food, Mich is THE best server in the world! Definitely recommending to all our friends and for sure coming back to this gem!
Pleasant ambiance. The food was delightfully different. We went as a couple for a quiet dinner and were not disappointed.
Excellent food and lots of variety!! The white sangria is delicious, too.
I have been to Pasion Latin Fusion several times. I bring all my out of town visitors, and this time was a local who'd never been before. She agreed! Food is fantastic, and regardless of which server, the service is always extraordinary - friendly but not intrusive, perfect timing/pacing. Fun to go with a small group as you can order so many tapas to share, but even with two, can't be beat.
This is great restaurant for meeting friends to catch up over sangria and tapas. The service is fantastic and they understand that sometimes you just want to spwnd hours sharinf good food and good stories. They are nwver in a rush to have you clear out for the next table.
Creative treatment of comfort food classics with quality fresh ingredients.
If you are in downtown Albuquerque walk on over to this restaurant. The vibe is nice, the wait staff are nice, and the food is nice too. Just be certain to leave your large group elsewhere. The restaurant is not equipped to handle tables of 15 or more.
Wonderful neighborhood spot. Creative vegan and gluten options as well, which are delicious whether you eat a special diet or eat everything as I do! A must in downtown Albuquerque. Dependable nice service, good quality food.
The food at this place is absolutely amazing! Both of our dishes had carnitas and they were hands down the best carnitas we have ever had. Their take on the Cuban sandwich is very unique and is a must-try. Would definitely come here again.
