Not a cheap date – Unlike many of the restaurants in Baltimore, Pazo has great ambiance. It is an extremely chic restaurant with dim lighting and sofas to lounge on and mingle. However, despite all of these attributes, the menu is a let down. When ordering tapas, expect to get one or two nibblings on a plate, which begin around seven dollars. Because you will need to order about four plates for a table of two, don't be surprised if your bill adds up and you still walk out hungry. Bottom line...its a place to mingle with a drink, not a place to dine.
Scintillating, Sparkling, Scrumptious – Its everything you could ask for in a tapas restaurant--including beautifully-blown, clear, *stemless* wineglasses. My one piece of advice to you: get invited to this place (so you can eat lavishly, without an eye to the pricy menu)!
SCINTILLATING. The dark cherrywood interior combined with perfectly-lit chandeliers and deep rust orange and maroon furnishings are welcoming, to say the least. Plop down with a sweetheart on one of the oversized plush sofas in the restaurant's "living room," decked tastefully with low-hanging wooden "coffeetables" and plenty of space for larger groups. Order tapas y sangria at the bar or from your sofa, but leave plenty of room for dinner.
SPARKLING. The wine list is extensive, ranging from deep burgundies and warm reds to crisp, sparkling whites. If you ask (and sometimes, if you don't), Pazo waiters will give suggestions for pairing different wines with dishes. Tapas can be ordered in single-serving portions or, for groups with fewer tastes, in "double" or "triple" amounts. The apples and gorgonzola dish is a good starter but, no comparison to the "goat's cheese agnolotti" which, at $8 for a small plate, can actually serve as half your meal. If you opt for a few tapas and a pizza, Pazo will wait til meal's end to serve the pizza: a creative way to ensure your dining experience is well-balanced (and that you don't get too full, too quickly).
SCRUMPTIOUS. I've been to 24 different tapas restaurants the world over and sampled some of the Mediterranean's most divine tapas. Pazo is not the Mediterranean but, it certainly brings the coast to you. The portions could be larger but, the atmosphere well makes up for it. Definitely a date-place. And certain to impress Baltimore businesspeople. My only hangup: our waiter informed the 4 of us that a carafe of sangria would only suffice for 3 (and that we should therefore order more); turns out, it was plenty for the table.
