“Excellent scallops”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

Entrees were outstanding. Went for a business dinner. Everyone raved about their meals. My scallops were perfectly cooked. Browned on top but nearly raw in the center. Good-looking wine list.

Good service and excellent food. Very convenient if you are staying at the Courtyard or attending a convention across the street.

“Great Food, But Expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Great food, impeccable service, and nice atmosphere even if a bit noisy. Even the bathrooms were nice. The Arctic Char was excellent. A Duck Breast was extraordinarily tough, but that could have been a fluke, The wild mushroom risotto is sat beside was scrumptious. The wine list was short, but offered a tasty array of reds and whites by the glass. My greatest criticism? The prices. You can get fine dining and great service in many places and pay much less. If you have lots of discretionary income, this is the place for you.

“Always great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

First of all I love going to Pacific Grill at night. The interior is especially beautiful with the beautiful lights and decorations. Nice place to be during our long dark winter nights. The food was excellent as well and definitely one of the best restaurants in Tacoma.
