We live in Ann Arbor and this is our favorite restaurant. We have celebrated special birthdays and anniversaries, as well as hosted out-of-town visitors here. I almost always order their sablefish which is rich, flaky and tasty. The Monsoon Platter is a good way to sample a bunch of hors d'ouevres.

Dinner and service were both excellent! We were a party of four and had a calamari appetizer and a zucchini scallion appetizer that were both delicious. For our entrees we enjoyed the big eye tuna, sablefish, rib eye and lemongrass chicken dishes. All were excellent with the tuna being my favorite. My husband did not stop talking about the tuna...

My husband was delighted with my choice for an evening out in AA. Made a reservation noting that we had Ark tix for that same night for music after dinner. Host let me know the venue was right around the corner so we had time for a relaxing dinner. Had a glass of the rose from 2Lads. Not typically drinking... More

The Pacific Rim is our favorite restorant when visiting family in Ann Arbor. The decor is simple but elegant and the menu is full of excellent options.One cant go wrong with the Thai calamari or the Unagi and avocado terrine for starters and the main courses are excellent- whether scallops, sable fish, tuna or rib-eye. The wine list has lots... More

My wife and I went out for a special evening and were not disappointed. The 5 spice Old Fashioned might be my all time favorite drink and my wife really enjoyed her ginger grapefruit martinis. Appetizer sampler and calamari were both excellent. The Japanese sable fish and scallops were also delicious. Pricey, but worthy of the ranking - looking forward... More

Whenever there is a restaurant week in Ann Arbor, Pacific Rim is our go to. The korean marinated ribeye is generally our go to dish as well. Service and ambience are always great. While it is a bit pricey, it is reasonable value for the quality of food and dining experience delivered. Definitely one of the better places in A2.

Pacific Rim is a standout restaurant in a town with a lot of good options. Everything I've ever tasted has been outstanding, from the cocktails to the entrees to the desserts (do NOT miss out on the chocolate cake with sake-marinated cherries!). The service is attentive but not obtrusive, the surroundings are warm and comfortable, and while it is not... More

A great meal with excellent service. I ordered the lemongrass chicken- the best chicken I have every ate !! Perfectly done- tender and very flavorful-the others in our party ordered the salmon and were very pleased. The rice was perfectly done. Would go back in a heartbeat .

Our meal was fabulous. I started with the special soup (squash) which was slightly sweet and topped with a swirl of cream and sprinkle of chives - it was excellent. Our table shared 2 tuna tartar appetizers and taro chips. This too was very flavorful. There were 5 of us for dinner. I had the salmon, my husband had the... More
