One of the best restaurants in New Haven, and love the atmosphere in addition to the food. Like many other reviews, the churrasco was great, and is one of my favorites. This time I also was able to try the Seafood paella, and this was also nice, service was outstanding.
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.
Absolutely magical. Pacifico is a place you go on a special occasion. It was our anniversary so I thought it was fitting; It certainly was. This was the first time ever trying octopus as well. It was an amazing first impression to say the least. The food was phenomenal and the service matched just that!
Great experience! They have a great safe setup indoor.
The team were very friendly and helpful, providing great suggestions for wine.
The food was beautiful and delicious! We had the shrimp and scallops and the NY steak and its tough to decide which was better!
Delicious food and wonderful service! I had a small intimate brunch with my best friend and it was wonderful. I will definitely be returning.
Wonderful experience and amazing food. Me and my partner ate some salads and appetizers, and drank a few glasses of Rioja wine. Very delicious! Our server Rafat was very friendly and very professional. We will definitely come back. Thank you!
this was my second time the first time was great the second time was awful the server had a attitude the whole time and when we would ask for more drinks from the bottomless mimosas he would do it with an attitude you could just tell he also tried to cut us off before the 90 min limit. i was also charged 18% tip for two people unacceptable i went two weeks before that and there was 3 of us and no tip was added. WILL BE NOT COME BACK
The food was fantastic. The sea bass in particular was wonderful. Great service too.
Food was delicious, service was excellent! The only thing I didn’t like was the music choice but that’s just a preference and doesn’t reflect the food or service
It was an amazing afternoon! Myself and six others went for brunch for my girlfriends birthday and the food and drinks were great, service was awesome and my girlfriend had a great day! Definitely recommend Pacifico to anyone for brunch, lunch or dinner!
We had such a great experience. One of the best restaurants in CT, and love the atmosphere and also the staff. Very tasty dishes especially the paella was great. I will come again and again.
My boyfriend introduced me to Pacifico for my birthday. Needless to say, it was exquisite. The wine selection was top of the line and the manager and staff was well-versed in cuisine. Chef and his kitchen staff sent out food that inspired me and brought about a whole new appreciation for the culinary field.
My most loved plate is the octopus. I was so intrigued with the plating and it’s overall presentation.
Walter and the entire team made me feel so appreciated for my special day. They exceeded my standards. I highly recommend pacifico!
An iconic restaurant with an iconic dish located near an Yale landmark. Dining outdoors is still a little bit scary with the pandemic but the food made us forget about the outside world for just a moment. Incredible service was a plus too.
Incredible food. The staff is so kind, personable and helpful. We had a really great time for my wife's birthday. We both got the four-course tasting and it was absolutely with it. Extremely expensive, though this was expected. Surprisingly, it was nearly worth the cost.
Pacifico restaurant was truly the best! The foods and drinks were quite yummy. Besides, I should be honest that I greatly enjoyed my visit to your restaurant. It was satisfying and worth it. Even the waiters/waitresses that were working there were all respectful, nice, and accommodating. The place was also very captivating, for it was clean, comfortable, and big. I will surely bring my friends next time here. Thank you!
Great food!!!! CustomerService was excellent ....even better location
Staff was very good. Music level made conversation impossible. Nice food selection and good (but not great) execution. Will try again as pandemic dining is likely no restaurant’s shining moment.
Absolutely loved my paella! I also tried the octopus my friends ordered and it was delicious. Cocktails were amazing.
Our server, Denny, was amazing! He was very attentive. We had reservations and were sat immediately upon arrival. The food was timed out perfectly. The fish tacos and paella were delicious!
Fantastic food, view, and service. All aspects of my visit here were perfect and fantastic. Unbelievably good atmosphere and service, This is a very elegant place to visit. The food is amazing here and was all affordable. I have been back multiple times and will continue to do so!
The best customer service ever....the atmosphere the food and the drinks. If you like a semi sweet cocktail...you need to try "Tequila French" in the cocktail menu.Top top of the line chic spot. I'll be back.
Last night was the first time we came to Pacifico. But It is obviously not the last time. We enjoyed the evening very much with the courteous service, with the magnificent cooking and fine drinks and with the honest price. We will absolutely come back again.
Went on $28 sangria pitcher night... Awesome. Between the four of us we each enjoyed our dishes. Ceviche was great too.
Friendly staff, great paella and the best Pisco Sour I've had in a while.
Super good and pleasant, warm atmosphere and attentive service!
Outdoor with a party of 5.
Service and food outstanding!
We will return.
I think considering covid and the sheer number of people they had, and the fact that the wait staff has to run up and downstairs, they did a fantastic job. The gambas could have been a little more flavorful, but we had a great night out.
Really good food consistently. The cocktails are delicious 😋
One of my favorites for lunch. Great food, usually quick.p
Delicious food, amazing mojitos, and great ambiance! A little loud inside but I was still able to hear my date and the waitresses with no issues. 10/10 would recommend!
The mojito’s were the best I’d ever had and the Chips and guac were delicious!
We have been here several times and I have not found any dish I didn't like, service is top notch, will keep going back...no doubtp
Superior food & service. Excellent dining experience Everytime we go there, which is frequently!!
Ordered wine and tapas for a few friends. All the dishes we tried were excellent and the service was good as well.
This place was so good. The server was very friendly and attentive, the food delicious, and the prices totally reasonable especially for the Downtown.
One of the best skirt steaks I have ever eaten. Also great vegetarian food. The drinks were amazing as well, absolutley love this place!
Wonderful food and service. We love the Shrimp and scallops and the sauce is to die for. The mango mojitos make you feel you are far far away from the city. Walter and his staff are the best and we love eating outside during the pandemic and have enjoyed eating inside pre-pandemic. If you want a great taste of Latin food, Pacifico is the place.
Amazing place,delicious food good music great service our waiter was friendly and the food came out fast the place was pack and the prices are good .if u ever in New Haven you need to try this place I highly recommend it..
The food was amazing and the staff was very attentive. I particularly loved the lomo saltado. Such a cool and fun atmosphere - we loved the bottles and candles on the walls.
Amazing food! Loved sitting outside on the patio and how open the front area is. Very nice high-end Latin restaurant. Highly recommend this place.
