Pacific Rim never fails. We always have a very special meal there. It is always the choice for birthdays. My daughters and husband are vegetarian, one being vegan(no fish), and they did an amazing job, special for my daughter. Their drinks are absolutely divine! I love the beef with the fried quail egg on top. The Chilean Sea Bass is... More

You will be hardpressed to find a better Asian Fusion restaurant anywhere on the planet. This place rocks and it is walking distance to both Ann Arbor's Main Street and University of Michigan's Central campus area....If you are looking and hate food diappointment, look no further than Pacific Rim....

We used a gift certificate, so we had drinks and dessert, as well as the entrees. Everything was great--nice choices for drinks, we both had seafood entrees which were absolutely perfect, and a little ice cream for dessert. First visit for me, and it made an excellent impression!

My husband and I were seated at a very small table very close to two other couples. I was distracted by the people talking next to us. I felt like my conversation wasn't very private. Most everything else was fantastic. I had the seared tuna, which was perfectly done with a wasabi sauce drizzled artistically on the plate. The coconut... More

After being seated, I inquired about the booth seating since all of them were open. He said he could move us but only if we finished eating by 7pm (we were there at 6pm). We didn't... More

Every once in a while when I eat at a restaurant, there is a meal that I cannot stop thinking about. I have not been to Pacific Rim for over 2 years and I really missed the Tuna dish. It is the perfect combination of spicy, sweet and juicy. We had a romantic dinner this week at Pacific Rim and... More

A very complete restaurant and probably the best in Ann Arbor. We had dinner with friends and enjoyed every bit of it - food, service and drinks. The menu suggests wines to accompany the different dishes and these can be purchased by the glass. This way, customers are not limited to the one bottle of wine they might have purchased.

My birthday dinner --- Called a number of "upper tier" A2 restaurants asking how vegetarians/vegan can be accommodated. No help until the host at Pacific Rim answered the call. He carefully and patiently explained menu options as well as special dishes that the chef would prepare. Although the first available reservation was at 8:30 busy Friday night, he assured us...
