Excellent food and atmosphere!

Very nice place. You can go casual or dressy. We had the lamb and clams. Both were excellent! Service was above par. We will definitely visit again.

I took my wife recently there for her birthday and I have visited the location several other times. I find the service, atmosphere and food very good. Parking can be challenging unless you use the Valet service. I would recommend.

Stopped in for lunch on a busy Tuesday afternoon. Lively place with a whole mix of white & blue collar workers enjoying lunch. The food and service were excellent but I thought $87 with tip for three lunches gave me sticker shock. Even though the high prices I would probably visit again!

The place was packed, so when we arrived early, there was no place to sit down, so we went next door. Service was very good and quick, wine was good, had duck breast with lasagna which was perfectly cooked. I liked the atmosphere of the place and can recommend it.

We were not able to get in for dinner, so we stopped by after 9. We had an appetizer and dessert and it was good. We are looking forward to going back for dinner some time

My wife and I enjoyed a great dinner at Pacific Grill. The atmosphere was busy and yet quiet enough for us to enjoy quiet conversation in our both.

Met a friend for lunch and enjoyed the window view while dining. We both ordered the special bourbon onion soup which was AMAZING! My friend had a steak sandwich that came with home-made potato chips and I had risotto. I have to say the risotto was a bit disappointing. It was cheesy and creamy, but the rice seemed to be...

This restaurant is convenient to the museum district downtown and a comfortable place to take a break in the middle of the day. On top of that, the food was great and the service very good. They also have a happy hour on weekdays with half price food.
