I did not know what to expect from this restaurant and I was pleasantly surprised. Everything was perfection! I was afraid that going during Restaurant Week might compromise the quality, but I was wrong. For appetizers we got spring rolls (described by my husband as the best he ever had), beef lettuce wraps (that were heavenly with just a tiny... More

Tasty Asian food exquisitely presented in a quaint atmosphere. Eating there felt like I'm sitting in a restaurant somewhere is West Hollywood. The difference is the better service that you get from here. Food was good, price reasonable. A good find.

We stumbled onto this place as a result of poor planning as the grill restaurant next door was closed. I am sure glad they were as we made this nice discovery. It was a bit late so they were not busy but our waitress was super friendly and inviting. Everything we tried tasted fantastic and the portion size are big... More

Went here expecting to be blown away after reading the reviews and seeing the ratings. Service was excellent, food was very good but not great. Would definitely recommend it, nice ambiance and overall a good experience.

Had a lovely dinner at Pacific rim this past weekend and was impressed with the quality and presentation of the food. Our party had four different entrees, each beautifully prepared and delicious. The wine selection was rather modest for a restaurant of this quality, but the prices were reasonable. Service was very good but we did take issue with their... More

The food was very good. Nice selection of Asian Pacific food. Waitress was very nice although delivery of our dinner took quite a while with no explanation (I think she forgot about it). The sablefish was buttery and delicious. Reminded me of Roy's Hawaiian Cuisine butterfish. We shared the sampler appetizer which was good but some dishes just came with... More

Pacific Rim is one of the better restaurants in Ann Arbor. Service is excellent, atmosphere is cozy but minimal. Love the bar. The menu is limited but interesting. The salmon is fantastic, the prawns are delicious and the pad Thai is better than most. Had a special lamb shank last night - I tried it because it didn't seem to... More

We had 2 fantastic cocktails and 2 great appetizers (Tuna Tartar and the Unagi Terrine) and for entrees we had the Scallops (hers) and Braised... More

The last time I reviewed Pacific Rim I was pretty hard on it, and I kept away from it for a good long while because of my extreme displeasure. Finally I succumbed to meeting friends there for dinner one evening in September. All was redeemed! The wait staff was excellent, the meals divine. I was so happy with it that... More

Excellent atmosphere not too big, not too small. Service is exceptional. Been there twice and everyone from the host to the manager to the wait staff are top shelf. Food is well crafted and presentation is elegant. I would highly recommend.
