Immediately after the graduation ceremony this place offered the place for celebration and relaxation with lots of cheers. Good stock of beers and wines with cocktails it offered a perfect lunch with Burrito and and Veggie Sandwich and Ensalada con Salmon with Cubano.

While Yale graduates had family in town, there was comfortable seating with reservations made in advance. The receptionist had us in seats promptly. She said it was a 3 day surge around Yale Graduation but much more balanced after the big event. We had a Price Fixed $55 per person dinner with excellent choices from 1st and 2nd courses and...

Lovely, Spanish themed restaurant, excellent service and delicious food. Sat upstairs and enjoyed view of city, close to YALE University and parking lot was resonable.

This place is good for a night out or when you don't have reservations elsewhere and find yourself in New Haven. But not for a great culinary or dining experience. Here's why: The food is pretty uneven. The yucca fries, for example, are perfect. They are crispy and flavorful with a fun sauce. They are presented attractively in a cone... More

Let me start by saying that the food was fantastic. The service, however, was disappointing, at best. We were seated at 6 PM (made reservations, which I strongly recommend). Our waiter was wonderful, but the food took FOREVER. Our appetizers were brought to the table at 6:45, 35 minutes after we ordered. Then we waited another 30 minutes for our... More

Went on a Saturday, a few empty tables but busy. Host and waitstaff were clearly overwhelmed and didn't try to hide it. We seemed to share the waiters, they tried to be pleasant but I felt sorry for them as they were understaffed - tapas was served before drinks?? Food was good. We enjoyed a selection of tapas and all... More

Each of us (4 of us) had a delicious dinner--> 2 Salmon dinners, a paella bowl, and a shrimp&scallop meal. The food was very good, but then again, after waiting nearly 30+ minutes for it to arrive, we were famished... I think cardboard would have tasted good! Our server was delightful. Friendly, informative, attentive. He brought our drinks and appetizers... More

This was a very, very nice experience. The waiters were very polite and attentive and the food was top notch. What stood out to me most was their guacamole -- we ordered it as a starter and it was very good. Stood out from other places. If you are looking for a more intimate setting request a table upstairs!

We are always looking for restaurants that can cook better than us. Pacifico has a great kitchen. The ropa vieja is amazing, and all their seafood dishes are great in this place.We are always pleased and happy with the food and atmosphere.
