Great food, great service and you can't beat 1/2 price wine on Tuesdays! Great place to go for date night.

They have the best happy hour in town. All menu items are 1/2 off from 2-close, in the bar. Great house wine pours. If you want a nice relaxing lunch in a quiet elegant setting this is the spot. It seems like most happy hours have such low quality food, this place does not. Service is usually pretty good I've... More

This is my 1st time in the Seattle area, so this restaurant just happen to be right next door to our hotel, which scores major points on the convenience factor. I did read the other reviews after I ate so as to not...contaminated my viewpoints. Dinner was good, I ordered the 8oz filet mignon (medium rare of course). The steak... More

The service is great, attentive but not overly, brought us everything we asked for and answered questions, polite and friendly. Just great service. The food was amazing, the filet mignon melted in my mouth, even the side dishes were great. Desert was big enough for two to share it was great but didn't overshadow the wonderful dinner we had just... More

Service was great, but the food was just average. Everything was over spiced, making it hard to actually taste the food.

Stopped at the Pacific Grill on a Sunday for lunch, but it was brunch time which turned out to be even better. The brunch menu is small, but it has a nice variety of intriguing dishes. Our server was very friendly and attentive. The food was served quickly and was very yummy! We had a variety from the 1502 breakfast,... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinner at Pacific Grill. Their curbside valet service simplified our parking issue, we were warmly greeted and quickly seated. Our waiter was attentive, their wine and drink list extensive, and their menu included a traditional turkey plate as well as other enticing meat and seafood options. The tyrkey plate was wonderful and one of out... More

We had 10 family members gathered on a busy Saturday night to celebrate my retirement. What a great restaurant this is with attentive waitstaff, top notch food and great ambiance. My filet mignon with wine sauce, broccolini and potato was cooked to perfection and exquisitely served. Others had scollops , steak and street tacos. Sorbet and cookies finished the evening....
