From start to finish the meal was terrific. We started with a selection of Spring rolls, Tuna Tartare, Beef lettuce wraps and an order of dumplings. as main courses we shared the Salmon, Big Eye Tuna and Pad Thai. The warm Chocolate cake and Creme Brulee topped it all off. Drinks / wine portions were decent. The overall atmosphere was... More

I have only been here once but was quite impressed. Delicious food...I had the sablefish which came with a tiny salad. Also had one glass of wine. Total with tip was $55. If I rated on food alone this place would get 5 stars. I deducted points for the surly man at the door and the terribly uncomfortable booths. Also,... More

I've been to this restaurant dozens of times, and it's my favorite. Not only in Ann Arbor but possibly anywhere. On my birthday, you will find me at Pacific Rim having the ginger tea, the tuna, and the warm chocolate cake. Best dinner ever. The service is always exceptional too.

In all the years this restaurant has been open (and also its predecessor Kana) we have never been disappointed with a meal or the service. In a town flush with good dinning venues, PR is always our "go to" choice when we want to eat someplace special. Their dishes are Asian but are so unique in their presentation and flavor... More

We had not been to Ann Arbor for a football game in more than 10 years, so we weren't sure what to expect downtown the night before a game. We studied all the restaurant websites and made a reservation at Pacific Rim based on consistently high ratings. Let me just say, they were all correct. This is not only one... More

Excellent service with a leisurely pace to dinner. This is fine dining, take time to relax and enjoy the beauty and taste of your food. We each tried a different glass of wine and entree. Everyone agreed that the tuna was amazing!

We have been here twice and all of the appetizers, entrees, desserts, and cocktails have been first rate and delicious. Great ambiance and service as well.

The staff was very accommodating to us as we had our 17th month old. They didn't have 3 person tables available for our time slot but made an exception. They also found a seat near the window where he could be entertained by the people walking by. The food was amazing. Great taste and just the right proportions. Lots of... More

I was skeptical of this restaurant and worried it was more trendy than quality. Wow was I wrong! It's a locally owned restaurant that's been around since the 1980s. The food was awesome (good sized portions-- I really disagree with the reviews that said they were small). However, the most impressive part were the people who worked their. Our waiter... More

For me, best food in all of Ann Arbor. Although fairly expensive, great food and wonderful service. Some of the best Chilean sea bass ever. Desserts are also a must. Quiet and cozy atmosphere, a romantic place with great food.
