Truly outstanding food!

Pacific Rim always serves delicious, well-prepared food. Our absolute favorite dish is the sable fish - please don't ever take it off the menu! The waitstaff are really great - friendly and obliging. We love this place.

I try to get excited about Pacific Rim, given the rave reviews and expense. And, to be fair, the restaurant is one of my favorites in Ann Arbor. You get tasty fare at a price, which is nice -- 1 cup of the house soup, 1 cup roasted squash, 2 ginger teas, 1 zucchini-scallion dish, and 1 rack of lamb... More

Excellent food and service as usual. We sat at the bar as we had not made reservations. Great fun to watch a myriad of fascinating drinks being created. I recommend the sable fish although other entrees are yummy also. Always a treat.

Order anything here and you won't be disappointed! Best Tuna entree in town. Great cocktails, even non-alcoholic. Appetizers are fantastic!!! Love the ambiance too.

My college-aged kids and I started a new tradition this year where we pick a pricier restaurant to try during their break, and this year it was Pacific Rim. What a great choice we made! Calamari was so tender and flavorful, even without the delicious dipping sauce. Perfectly cooked pork roast, delicious goat cheese pierogis, and excellent Korean marinated steak.... More

Nice place to go for something different. Food is always fresh and looks great! It's NOT a place for kids to explore different foods however. Nothing like having brats wreck your dinner by being loud-----

I've had several business dinners at Pacific Rim. It's a great place for a quiet discussion over good food and drink.

We had a great dinner on our wedding anniversary. Calamari and crab cakes were very tasty. Rack of lamb and tenderloin were top of the line.

Anyone who has been here for the past 15 or 20 years may be tired of a place that has literally never changed a thing on the menu (we are looking at you, The Earle), but it is hard to argue with quality and consistency. This is 90s Asian fusion at its good ole best. Good kitchen, it always comes... More

My fiancée and I wanted a special restaurant for our engagement to be formalized. We chose Pacific Rim and could not be more pleased! The food was out of this world and the service superb. We enjoyed the ambiance—lovely soft lighting, very interesting art and artifacts. It was the perfect spot for this very special evening out.
