The restaurant had a line on the Friday prior to Vday - a good sign. Food great but my steelhead not the medium I ordered. Still, good wine, love, love, love the atmosphere. Excellent service, clearly a professionally trained staff.

consistently a great place to dine - good menu and very good food, more expensive than most but a lot better fare and service than almost any restaurant in the urban Seattle-Tacoma area.

A lot of people like this restaurant so I have given it 4 tries and each time was the same; Food was Ok, nothing spectacular and the service was terrible which makes this facility overpriced for the experience. I enjoy fine dining but this facility really misses the mark on pacing. There is a difference between letting the guests stretch... More

I think their prices are a little high for lunch; but you can't beat their happy hour. They have a good lectionaries and the quality is always good.

This is the perfect place for Happy Hour or dinner. Lots of small plates for sharing. or interesting and deliciously prepared dinner options. Our server was fantastic - she didn't rush us and provided perfectly timed delivery of food and drink.

Had dinner and drinks at Pacific Grill. Was packed on a Wed night due to a nearby convention. The steelhead was prepared perfectly and bread pudding dessert was delicious. Even better than the food, though, was the attentive and friendly service. Would return in a heartbeat.

Enjoyed every moment. We arrived early and had a seat at the bar. Ordered drinks and appetizer. Moved to our semi secluded booth and loved the decor. All of the food and drinks tasted amazing. Wait staff were very attentive. We will be returning again soon.

Dinner here was a nice experience. The atmosphere of the dining room is simple and relaxing. The food has great flavor, texture and presentation. The Worcester mushrooms were delicious. The Cioppino was also very well done. The black walnut honey old fashioned was an amazing cocktail, just the right combination of sweet, bitter and savory. The Pacific Grill is a... More
