“A delightful night in Ann Arbor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

My husband was delighted with my choice for an evening out in AA. Made a reservation noting that we had Ark tix for that same night for music after dinner. Host let me know the venue was right around the corner so we had time for a relaxing dinner. Had a glass of the rose from 2Lads. Not typically drinking rose found this very nice. My husband had the curry soup which he loved followed by the fabulous sablefish. I enjoyed the special seasonal salad and then the quinoa scallops. The passionfruit chocolate mousse was a great finish. The waiter and host both commented on our evening plans -- outstanding service, fabulous food, and a wonderful ambiance! Thanks! We'll be back!

“excellent Asian fusion menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

The Pacific Rim is our favorite restorant when visiting family in Ann Arbor. The decor is simple but elegant and the menu is full of excellent options.One cant go wrong with the Thai calamari or the Unagi and avocado terrine for starters and the main courses are excellent- whether scallops, sable fish, tuna or rib-eye. The wine list has lots of interesting options at reasonable prices. The service was relaxed but highly attentive to details. An extra warm touch- one of our party couldnt join us due to illness so our server sent a serving of winter soup home for them!

“Can't wait to go back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

My wife and I went out for a special evening and were not disappointed. The 5 spice Old Fashioned might be my all time favorite drink and my wife really enjoyed her ginger grapefruit martinis. Appetizer sampler and calamari were both excellent. The Japanese sable fish and scallops were also delicious. Pricey, but worthy of the ranking - looking forward to our next visit...

“deliciousness”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

Whenever there is a restaurant week in Ann Arbor, Pacific Rim is our go to. The korean marinated ribeye is generally our go to dish as well. Service and ambience are always great. While it is a bit pricey, it is reasonable value for the quality of food and dining experience delivered. Definitely one of the better places in A2.

“Best restaurant in Ann Arbor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Pacific Rim is a standout restaurant in a town with a lot of good options. Everything I've ever tasted has been outstanding, from the cocktails to the entrees to the desserts (do NOT miss out on the chocolate cake with sake-marinated cherries!). The service is attentive but not obtrusive, the surroundings are warm and comfortable, and while it is not a cheap experience, I believe the quality of the product matches what you are paying for. Highly recommended.
