OK so we went here in February, and I cannot even remember what all we had or what we did. Not enough to write a proper review. But I HAD to finish this draft review just to say -- my family of six are all still talking about, and dreaming about, how AWESOME that Japanese-Style Sablefish was. Go there and... More

Our recent visit to Pacific Rim provided properly cooked tuna (that is, seared only) with excellent sesame-ginger-wasabi seasoning, and they know what they are doing with seafood. But the waiters were confused on drinks, serving a martini that wasn't made with the requested gin, and slow and forgetful generally. I found the food well-cooked and designed, but not innovative- modern... More

This was my second business dinner at Pacific Rim in the last 6 months and -- as with the first visit -- there was no disappointment. My wife and I were there with two Japanese executives and everyone was very, very pleased with our experience. My wife said it was one of the best dinners she has ever enjoyed. Three... More

We recently visited this restaurant with friends from AnnArbor. Our friends told us this is one of the best restaurants in Ann Arbor. We were not impressed. While the food was beautifully presented, it lacked flavor. My husband ordered the pork special wrapped in bacon. It was lukewarm and tasteless. I ordered the ribeye with rice. The ribeye also lacked... More

The service is outstanding and the food delicious each and every time I visit. The atmosphere is quiet and rather elegant - a nice place for a date.

Too many people stay on Main St when in Ann Arbor. Little do they know some of the best restaurants are just a block or two away on the so called side streets. Pacific Rim is among those. Located on Liberty, it offers beautifully presented Asian fusion food in a quiet grown up atmosphire. Imagine? No sports! Table cloths and... More

While this place is kind of on the pricey side, I KNOW I will always have an amazing food experience here. I always get the Seared Ahi Tuna... which is amazing. It is a very asian-inspired plate. Also, everything you will ever get at Pacific Rim is photo-worthy. It is the place to go to if you have someone you're... More

Pacific Rim is a favorite of mine and my family. The menu is interesting and flavorful. I order the tuna every time I go. It is like butter and presented beautifully. Entrees come with a nice small salad. The service is attentive and pleasant. Do not miss the Chocolate lava cake that must be ordered in advance-Delicious!

We had a great meal at the Pacific Rim, staff was incredibly friendly and the drinks were delicious. I really enjoyed the desert selection (my wife says 'figures') and the entrees where diverse, delicious and and wonderfully presented.

If you're in Ann Arbor, don't leave without trying this restaurant first. This is one of the best. Amazing food. Great service. Creative meals. Asian twist on classic seafood dishes. My family and I come here whenever we can.
