My wife and I had lunch today and got a great meal...we are ready to return when we visit Tacoma again. It is located as you enter the Tacoma Mall as well as 3 blocks from the Costco Store. We had Rigatoni with Bolognese Sauce that was very flavorful. They have full dinner sizes and prices..and I had the smaller... More

Food is flavorful, service is attentive, and the wine menu is extensive. We had fun watching the pizza maker tossing the pizza crust high into the air--obviously an expert!

Burger, lasagna, spaghetti and meatballs and Steelhead dinners were all good. Really live this place as the food and service is always the best. Look forward to the next time.

Good, thoughtful service, excellent food, great selection on menu, good lighting, lovely decor. Prices are a bit spendy, but not out of line for the quality.

Good service. Good salad. The restaurant has a 'been there for a long time' feel to it. Bathrooms were clean but the menus were grungy. (We asked for clean menus). This was an early dinner with friends. They were not very impressed.

We did not need a reservation on a Sunday night, but having the reservation got us a quiet booth. The four of us (all adults) were all very happy with our crab cakes, pastas, shrimp, and chocolate cake. Service was attentive and pleasant. Entrees were so large that everyone had take-away.

The lighting was dim which made it difficult to read the menu without additional light. We only ordered appetizers and wine. The mushroom soup was delicious and the clams were good also, but they were way overpriced. Very good wine but small portions for $11 per glass. Our waitress was pleasant and attentive. We were visitors to this area, so... More

Great looking restaurant with nice decor. Best part of dinner was this rum cake aka tiramisu I was not a big fan of the #BBQ pork pizza (lack of BBQ pork) or the Cobb salad too tangy for my taste. But the dessert made up for the rest of the meal and was to die for loaded with rum so... More

My wife and I have missed this place since becoming parents of twins 3 -years ago. Now getting the gumption to go out again, we were pleasantly surprised to find that fine dining can also be kid friendly- and without having to be 'overly kid friendly.' The staff at Adriatic Grill is always top notch and attentive, such that you... More
