“Fantastic”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

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 or ignored. All the food was either very good or excellent. One of the appetizers had us moaning - and how often do you do that over broccoli and cauliflower?

I believe prices are fair for the quality of the food, the staff, and the atmosphere (it's beautiful inside).

It's a bit pricey to be a regular meal, but I would happily go there again.

“Good Tacoma dining near Hotel Murano”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

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, and most entrees got very positive reviews. Recommended for downtown Tacoma dining.

“Poor service tired food”
Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

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

“Worth a visit!”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

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.

“Classy but comfortable”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

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.
