Visited our preferred restaurant during restaurant week and was treated to an excellent dinner. Our daughter and friend joined us for their first trip to Pacific Rim and they agreed that the dinner was unique and excellent. My wife and I started with a crab cake appetizer that tops all crab cakes we have tried (different but great). The salmon... More

Favorite restaurant. Food is fresh and easily worth the price. The tuna entree is beautifully presented and consistently delicious. We all got different things and were all pleased. Tables are spaced pretty far apart so you can actually converse. Don't miss!

Definitely one of our favorites in Ann Arbor!! Order the Tuna. Do it. You will be so happy with yourself. Also enjoyed the spring rolls, lemongrass beef skewers, creme brulee tasting and the korean marinated ribeye. Excellent wine selections as well!

Pacific rim is definitely one of the most expensive restaurant in Ann Arbor. I've heard mixed reviews from my friends, a lot of my friends believe that this restaurant is totally overrated. After tasting 2 appetizers, 2 side dishes, and 2 entrees in this restaurant, I felt everything was barely average except the braised lamb shank. This entree definitely saved... More

Very special flavors. Can say that every single dish was delicious and very well executed. If I have to choose 2 words if say - fresh and bold. Will definitely come again.

Thoroughly enjoyed the evening at Pacific Rim. Service was attentive and informed. We enjoyed different entrees...duck, tuna, salmon...and chilled avocado soup. All were splendid! We will look forward to returning.

Pacific Rim consistently delivers----wonderfully prepared and presented food, excellent understated service, calm lovely atmosphere inside or out. Spring roll was light and crispy, and avocado crab soup interesting mix, but seared tuna was the favorite with truly rare fine tuna and enhancing accompaniments. Crusted pork loin also an interesting mix of favors. Unfortunately we had no room for our dessert... More

This was a business dinner but the meal was superb. Attentive servers, understated decor, quiet to boot with an ambience that allowed the team to talk. As advised, the tuna was a delight - beautifully presented and fresh. Wasabi sauce was a lovely counterpoint. I'm usually not keen on fish but was glad I had taken up the recommendation. We... More

This restaurant offers the only Asian/western fusion food in Ann Arbor, and does it very well. The chef is creative, the selection of dishes is large, many of them are delightful, and nothing disappoints. The wine list is interesting and fairly priced.
