As residents of Ann Arbor, we have been diners at Pacific Rim on a fairly regular basis, a couple of times a year. While the menu of this downtown restaurant is interesting and varied, it has changed very little in 10 years. Prices for the entrees are a bit high but wine prices seem outlandishly high. If you are in... More

One of the very best restaurants in Ann Arbor. Mostly an Asian flair. The food is outstanding - creative, fresh, and always prepared perfectly. Ahi Tuna is a favorite but I have never had anyting I don't like. Great wine list. Service has always been great. Nice décor in a smaller more intimate setting.

I love all their food but when we go I usually order their Ahi Tuna, it is the best thing in the menu!

I look forward to going to Pacific Rim during restaurant week when it's reasonably priced. This week happens twice a year in Ann Arbor and it's always a treat to go to Pacific Rim. The food is some of the best Asian fusion that I've had. Everything I've tried on the menu has been tasty. It may be a good... More

The Pacific Rim has really good Asian food. The menu has dishes from many nations including: Japan, Korea, Vietnam, to name a few. They did not have any items on the menu from Thailand the day we visited.

I have a difficult time with this review because although the food and drinks are outstanding each time I come here the experience is poor because the man who seats us is so rude and pretentious. I have always suggested the Ginger Grapefruit Martini. It is not on the menu but is the best cocktail I have ever had in... More

I visited here with friends twice recently. This place has been around for ages, yet they still shine at service, presentation and variety of food. The first time was solely a bar visit, the second was dinner late in the evening. Service was attentive and timely, just right amount of attendance. The atmosphere was fresh and vibrant, not tired as... More

Pacific Rim is one of those places that you've heard about, read about, people rave about; so is all the fuss warranted? Yes, yes and did I mention yes? The restaurant has been described as Asian with American accents. Another accurate description would be professional and classy and never deviates from that. It really doesn't matter what you order- Tuna,... More

Somethings are fine: the wine is generous and good. Prawns are nicely seasoned and presented. Salads are a notch above Friendly's. But more things are weird. The booths have the comfort of bamboo flooring (which they are). Quaintly shaped bowls and implausible chopsticks send a mysterious signal. Vegetarian crepes turn out to be zuchhini latkes. And instead of the red... More

Very nice restaurant with reasonably priced food and drink. We had a number of dishes which were all excellent. Very appealing decor. Would definitely recommend and will definitely return if given the opportunity.
