One of the best restaurants in town. The calamari & sauce is the best I've ever tasted. Try a grapefruit infused martini. You can't go wrong at Pacific Rim.

Asian inspired menu. Restaurant had a good vibe and was quite full, although we were seated right away at 7 pm on a Monday evening. I would think it would be really crowded on the week-end. This was my first time here and I loved the scallops. My husband had the steak and it was great as well.

This a great restaurant. Excellent service and ambiance. It's rare to find this level of pan Asian food in the Midwest. We have been many times over several years. We've had just about every dish on the menu and it's been delicious. Tonight we started with the crab cakes which were so good. A lovely flavor of green onion, cilantro,... More

While it is true that the menu has virtually stayed the same over the past 8 or more years that we have dined at the Pacific Rim, what they offer is done very well. In addition to the printed menu you can count on a second featured soup, an upgraded salad and a special entrée being offered on every visit.... More

As residents of Ann Arbor, we have been diners at Pacific Rim on a fairly regular basis, a couple of times a year. While the menu of this downtown restaurant is interesting and varied, it has changed very little in 10 years. Prices for the entrees are a bit high but wine prices seem outlandishly high. If you are in... More

One of the very best restaurants in Ann Arbor. Mostly an Asian flair. The food is outstanding - creative, fresh, and always prepared perfectly. Ahi Tuna is a favorite but I have never had anyting I don't like. Great wine list. Service has always been great. Nice décor in a smaller more intimate setting.

I love all their food but when we go I usually order their Ahi Tuna, it is the best thing in the menu!

I look forward to going to Pacific Rim during restaurant week when it's reasonably priced. This week happens twice a year in Ann Arbor and it's always a treat to go to Pacific Rim. The food is some of the best Asian fusion that I've had. Everything I've tried on the menu has been tasty. It may be a good... More

The Pacific Rim has really good Asian food. The menu has dishes from many nations including: Japan, Korea, Vietnam, to name a few. They did not have any items on the menu from Thailand the day we visited.

I have a difficult time with this review because although the food and drinks are outstanding each time I come here the experience is poor because the man who seats us is so rude and pretentious. I have always suggested the Ginger Grapefruit Martini. It is not on the menu but is the best cocktail I have ever had in... More
