It's hard for me to rate anything but the Tuna because it's all I ever get at Pacific Rim. I never do this at other restaurants but at Pacific Rim it truly is the best. Other favorites in my family are the Five Spice Duck and the Sable Fish. The hot chocolate lava cake is a must. Cocktails are interesting... More

This restaurant started as a small family run Korean place near University Hospital. It has since moved and become one of Ann Arbor's finest restaurants. I especially like it for its fabulous fish-beautifully prepared with yummy sauces that are not too overpowering. This is a place for a lovely evening out. Book a table, order a drink, sit back and...

All entrees and I've tried the tuna, the sable fish and the scallops are scrumptious. Truly delectable. Service is excellent. It's one of my favorites.

Where to bring your sister who lives in the City of Light? Perfect - always excellent for any occasion. Never disappointed.

Overall I thought the meal was okay. We read a lot of reviews prior to coming and a lot of people said they loved the Sablefish. I personally thought it was kind of fishy. I'm a seafood person and I wasn't too keen on this plate. My boyfriend had the ribeye and his was much better than mine. We started... More

This is the restaurant that I always go to for my birthday dinner - 62 just this past Saturday. Love the food, love the atmosphere, and love the chocolate cake which is the birthday prize. Plenty of restaurants in Ann Arbor give the birthday girl a free meal but I prefer to stay at Pacific Rim.

Four of us (two couples) ate dinner on this restaurant on February 8, 2017. We did not have a reservation and the restaurant was crowded. We were seated in a few minutes after a table was cleared. We all had ginger tea to drink which is excellent. It is brewed for hours and flavored with honey. We did not order... More

We went with a friend who is a huge fan of Pacific Rim. We were beyond impressed! The atmosphere was outstanding. The service was excellent. And the food choices were truly amazing. There were 7 of us, we ate the lamb special (unbelievable!), the scallops, the special soup and desserts - all of which were excellent. The appetizers were all... More

The fits here is just ridiculously good. Their Korean-marinated ribeye is all kinds of delicious. They also have the best happy hour in town, because their cocktails and appetizers are AMAZING, and $5 is a steal.

Our family celebrated a birthday at Pacific Rim and was fortunate to get a reservation on a Tuesday! It is a popular place and now I can see why it is. Every dish from appetizer to dessert was delicious and unique. My avocado soup was both refreshing and rich. The ginger tea was a lovely surprise. Other dishes that I... More
