My 9 year old son and I were staying at the Marriott, and we're looking for a little bite in the eve. This place is right below the hotel, so we peeked in. Looked lively, hip, elegant, and I was worried it would be too upscale for a quick bite. It was perfect. We each had a drink. He had... More

You can read the other reviews for specifics on the food, I can just say that everything we had was excellent and the service was extremely good. I am a gin drinker and was delighted to find they actually had seven different varieties to choose from. The steamer clams were excellent and the sauce made perfect dipping for the bread.... More

From the hostess greeting to dessert, this is a top notch and well managed restaurant. Much attention is given to the details that make a difference in your dining experience. Incredible local dishes abound such as the Alaska King Salmon that I enjoyed. My wife had Clam Linguine that had ample and very tasty clams. Perfect evening lighting and low... More

We had booked a stay in the area of the Tacoma Dome and arrived in the late evening. Driving around the area of the Dome, we were surprised to find relatively few places to eat. We finally decided to try the Pacific Grill and are we ever glad we did, The food was amazing! My 9 and 12 year old... More

We were so happy to get such an amazing dinner at the Pacific Grill in Tacoma! The deviled eggs to begin with were relish. Enjoyed a wedge salad as well as the BLT salad. My husband enjoyed his salmon entrée as well. Only wish we could have ordered again after we had eaten it was so good.

Had an hour for lunch while at convention center and chose Pacific Grill because it was easy. Food was good and served quickly. They had a bar menu which was half price and due to lack of time and being by self, ate there. A good variety of items, well cooked, quick service, and friendly staff. Would eat here again.

Being a seafood eating Pacific Northwester, I often eat in seafood restaurants. This place is a must. Being in the same building as the Tacoma Marriott Courtyard makes the visit even easier. The restaurant probably holds less than 70 people making it rather quiet and quant. Very high ceiling and indirect lighting adds to the atmosphere. I would like some... More

We had a really good time in this restaurant. The food was excellent, we took the salmon and it was delicious. The selection of wine was good too. The server did a small error on the dessert, but it was corrected quickly.

We were in town for a wedding and had the groom's family get together at this restaurant. A couple of us had the salmon and being from the East Coast I thought it was like nothing i have ever tried. I went with the waiters recommendation of medium rare and I felt as if it just melted in your mouth.... More
