Let me start by saying I love the decor and atmosphere here: very clean and uncluttered, with a good mix of wood, metal, water elements. However, I cannot in good conscience say this is the best dining experience in Ann Arbor. A very good dining experience yes, but not the best. We have been here a few times and always... More

Ambience was great, but the service was subpar. The spring rolls appetizer was fantastic and the dessert of the mouse was great but the scallop entree was forgettable. For a college town I thought this was a really nice restaurant, worth visiting, but I was disappointed in at least my entree selection.

The bartenders can do wonders - you can order off the drink menu if you sit at the small bar. The meals are good. Especially the Big Eye tuna. High quality dining.

From the moment of walking into Pacific Rim's serene and uncluttered space, I was impressed. This restaurant is a cut above the average Ann Arbor dining experience. Although the restaurant was completely full, the noise level was low and our party of 5 was able to have a great conversation at the table without ever having to raise our voices... More

Had the steak, seared tuna, and miso-teriyaki salmon. We all shared and all of them were great. Highly recommend this place. Prices aren't cheap, but you're not coming to this place if you want inexpensive food. Would come again.

This review is a little late. My husband and I spent a weekend in Ann Arbor back in September. Our son is a freshman at UMich, so we take him out for three meals a day. Pacific Rim is in my opinion, the best meal we have had so far. There were no complaints - the staff was very kind,... More

Our youngest son is about to graduate from UM, so we wanted to take him out to a very nice restaurant in Ann Arbor to celebrate. Pacific Rim was outstanding! We had the roasted quash soup, house salads, lamb shank special with roasted root vegetables, grilled sable with sticky rice and stir-fried vegetables, and three different in-house made ice creams...

Great location and service. Excellent food though fish not that fresh..compared to Seattle, SF, LA....for obvious reasons. Very, very good.

We had a two course lunch here, and appreciated the quality of ingredients, as well as the originality of the dishes. Slightly on the expensive side, but definitely a good place to eat.
