First time we went here it was terrible. There were 4 of us and 2 of us ordered our steak med. rare. It took a long time and our steak was burnt. We complained to the waitress and she went to talk to the kitchen. She came back and said "Gordon said, you can eat it and we will take... More

My wife and I dine out most every evening in the Greater Tacoma - Gig Harbor area and even though this establishment gets some good hype, I find it is just that, hype. We have been here more than once and have found the only consistency was poor service, mediocre food and high prices. This area has many really fine... More

All of the food at Pacific Grill is amazing, down to their macaroni and cheese! The food is prepared with the freshest of ingredients and packed with flavor!

Great local eating establishment if you're not afraid to spend a little extra on dinner. Group of about 14 in a private dining room just off to the side of the main dining area.

Not much I could complain about here. Multiple drinks and appetizers followed by entrees, and all were good on a recent date. Server was attentive without overbearing, and left us alone when he seemed to realize it was a date - yet he still checked in appropriately on occasion. We were there over 3.5 hours and we never felt rushed... More

Several golf buddies and I shared a great meal at Pacific Grill, as part of a golf trip. The restaurant kindly accommodated an eleventh hour request to move our reservation so we could watch an NCAA Sweet Sixteen game (which we watched elsewhere, as the restaurant bar is just that, a nice bar with no TVs). Service was very good,... More

Poor service, cold plates, over cooked pasta, feeble (pretentious) sweet potato salad. Waiter attitude - if you're ordering wine why are you bothering me Out of fresh fish and salad of the day at 6:15 Frankly I'm not surprised Don't go here

Excellent personal service, carefully selected wine list, tremendous scallops, very good steelhead. Everything from reservations to seating to advice from the wine steward was handled professionally.

We find the Pacific Grill to be a nice place to have appetizers and drinks with friends. I also like going for lunch when I have a client to impress. The décor is beautiful with great art pieces.

We joined with friends for a quiet evening out and enjoyed the food, service and setting very much. It's well worth it, especially for a special occasion.
