Best Tuna dish in town!

Did a wine tasting downtown and hit the bar at Pacific Rim for some apps. afterwards. this is hands down one of my favorite restaurants in town! The apps were great- we did a couple of platters with mixed dishes. They were very good, but I have to say that the Tuna dish on the regular entree list... read more

Pacific Rim is--or used to be?--one of my favorite Ann Arbor restaurants. The entire experience used to be perfect every time I ate there. Recently, however, I have had some less than great experiences. The reek of chemical cleanser in the bar (perhaps disinfectant for the barware?) is so strong as to be almost nauseating. The first time I experienced... More

We've been wanting to try this place for a year now and finally were able to make it work. All of our selections were prepared very well and tasted great! We started off with the Tuna Tartare and Chinese Garlic Chive Dumplings. For entrees, we selected the Tuna, Lemongrass Chicken, Goat Cheese Pierogies and the Korean-marinated Ribeye. For dessert, we... More

This is our very favorite A2 restaurant. The food, drinks & service are consistently great. Our children who live in NY & Chicago, where there are excellent restaurants, always want to go to Pacific Rim when they visit A2. It's their favorite restaurant. Be sure to try their calamari & martinis.

My go-to place in Ann Arbor for high quality food, with a unique twist. The sable fish, the tuna, and above all else, the flour less chocolate cake!

My local friends have frequented this restaurant before. The restaurant was not exceptionally busy this Thursday night in Ann Arbor. There were six of us for dinner which provided a great opportunity to sample various appetisers, spring rolls, calamari and lettuce beef. Our main course ranged from the grilled king prawn, quinoa grilled scallop, five spice duck breast, and the... More

After the great reviews, my husband and I booked our reservation for dinner. Coconut soup was fine, and the spring rolls tasty. Stay away from the pork loin. It comes slathered in purple jelly, dry and tough. UGH. Ditto for the beef tenderloin with wasabi seasoning. Beef was not tough, but rather a limp, dead piece of meat. Overall, our... More

We had dinner here for the first time and we surprised by the menu and quality. As I'm not a real sushi fan we chose this place as an compromise. I had the sablefish and my husband scallops. For desert kaluha coconut ice crew and panne cotta with rhubarb strawberry Awesome

We had a fabulous meal at Pacific Rim starting with the delicious pork belly in a succulent sauce. I tried the sablefish which was wonderful, just like Sea Bass. My partner enjoy the ahi tuna but was a little overwhelmed by the wasabi oil. Our server was very conscientious and offered us a free dessert following our wonderful dinner.
