The last time I reviewed Pacific Rim I was pretty hard on it, and I kept away from it for a good long while because of my extreme displeasure. Finally I succumbed to meeting friends there for dinner one evening in September. All was redeemed! The wait staff was excellent, the meals divine. I was so happy with it that... More

Excellent atmosphere not too big, not too small. Service is exceptional. Been there twice and everyone from the host to the manager to the wait staff are top shelf. Food is well crafted and presentation is elegant. I would highly recommend.

My spouse and I both had delicious dinners: The Salmon and the Lemongrass Chicken. Both entrees were excellent but we thought the Salmon was our favorite of the two dishes. We were celebrating my spouse's birthday and she was served a complimentary desert of warm choclate cake with coconut ice cream----very very yummy! Our waiter, Mac, was very good. Also,... More

We ate at the Pacific Rim based on reviews on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed. Beautiful room, the food was amazing, and we went early(5:30 PM), so we had good service. Parking is a problem, and we parked in a parking garage about 2 blocks away. Not much street parking at all. They do not have Valet parking, but... More

but could have used a bit more crab in the patty. I had the sable fish with veggies, it was so such a light, delicate and clean fish, it was really tasty. We both had the market salad, which was good, but too big with all of the food we ended up with in the end. My BF decided to... More

On my first visit to Ann Arbor my friend took me here for my birthday. What an excellent choice. It's hard to find a place that is equally successful across all fronts -- food, drink, service and ambiance. The craft cocktails are definitely worth sampling and the bar area was busy. The food is fresh and delicious. Both the crab... More

Awesome food. Get there early if you don't have a reservation and you may get a table. Sablefish and Tuna are great.

Came to celebrate my wife's birthday. It was my second experience there and all expectations were achieved again! Service was perfect! Started with a Tuna tartare and had the Japanese style sablefish...Delicious! My wife had the Big eye tuna and loved as well. At the end, the restaurant offered a complimentary chocolate cake that was a great finish to another... More
