This is a bit of a Asian fusion restaurant with a bit of a flair for artistry and food. I was not quite sure what to expect in a college town like Ann Arbor, but we were not disappointed. The service was polite and friendly. The martinis were great and the food was excellent. For appetizers, we shared the Unagi... More

We with friends on my recommendations. largely an Asian infused fish restaurant with a limited menu. My friends enjoyed the bourbon sampler and the combo appetizer platter. We had the pot stickers and eel terrine. My wife enjoyed both I thought the eel tureen was superior. Two of dinners had the lamb shank, which they devoured with gusto finishing with... More

Always a great meal..presentation, dish composition and personable service are the best. It is also a great place for business meeting or small gathering given the soft/ quiet acoustics..And if by chance you have a dietary preference or just desire for something different they will deliver, making it a favorite of local AnnArborites!

I love this location especially in summer when you can enjoy a lovely bottle of wine with your meal on the patio. Fantastic people watching right in the downtown of Ann Arbor. The food is excellent. I eat here several times a year.

Beautiful restaurant with fantastic food. Don't miss the calamari - much better than what you usually get when you order that!

First time ever eating sablefish. I had high expectations and they were exceeded. The fish with the rice, vegetables and sauce was an unbeatable combo. I wolfed it down before the wife was done with half of her meal. I can see why this is the number 2 rated restaurant in A2 on TripAdvisor.

We ate here on a Saturday night. The food was magnificent. I loved the tuna tartar. The waitress was lovely. I would eat here again!

The menu looks much more exciting than the dishes. The appetizer combo failed to intrigued us. (Spring roll is dull. Sauce for beef too sweet. Soy sauce is too salty. Beef is tough.) Korean-Marinated Ribeye is chewing and served lukewarm with Americanized Korean-want-to-be sauce. My husband has the scallop dish with undercooked vegetables on the side. I cannot understand how...

Found this place by accident, thought we should gave it a try. If you like Asian Fusions, then you would probably like this place. All dishes were creatives. Overall, it's not the best, but it was good. Excellent service! Very attentive.

It's Sat night, just before 6, and we decide to go to a play in Ann Arbor which is near downtown at 8pm. Where can you go? I booked a table at Pacific Rim for 6:15. Luckily I found a parking spot on Liberty St so we were on time. We picked fresh salmon and 5 Spice Duck. The waitress... More
