A word from Pacific Grill
Pacific Grill is Tacoma’s most Award-Winning restaurant. A stunning urban space, at home in any major city that is perfect for romance, great conversation & world-class food.

Gordon Naccarato—a former winner of Food & Wine’s TOP TEN BEST NEW CHEFS in America—describes his food as fun dining-not fine dining with dishes perfect for sharing with a group of friends, entertaining business clients or celebrating your special occasion.

The extensive menu features everything from fresh local oysters & raw Beef Carpaccio to delicious Tacos & locally smoked Steelhead & includes many Vegan & gluten-free options. For smaller appetites, many of the menu items such as Angry Pasta with Prawns or Classic Clam Linguine can be served as half-portions. Order a Chopped Wedge Salad & get the bone-in New York Steak all for yourself, or share tapas-style & try many appetizers like the famous BLT Salad.

Located in the historic Waddell Building in the heart of downtown.

Diner Reviews
  • "Had the steak sandwich was a little too much pepper"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Loved the food, great choices from meat fish and vegan even. The wait staff was a little slow, at a restaurant like this one should not have to wait and look to find the waiter to get help, though the staff was friendly."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "We had excellent service starting with the hostesses which were very pleasant and attentive. I would venture we had one of the best servers ever. He was knowledgeable and honest about the menu, and he was there when we needed/wanted him but without being obtrusive to our evening. Perfect. Now, the food. Delicious. Two of us had the duck, and it was very good - cooked as requested and tasty, though I would like the fat to be rendered out (I just put it to the side). One had the pork tenderloin, and it was fantastic; moist and perfectly cooked, and the creamed corn had great depth of flavor (w/bacon & jalapeño). The Steak Frites, delicious. Don't miss the Broccoli Cauliflower Fritto, a unique and amazing great shareable side. Fabulous!"

  • "We were looking for sophisticated seafood at the end of our stay in the Puget Sound area and Pacific Grill delivered. Both wife's steelhead and my clam linguine were well prepared and very satisfying. The wine list was WA and OR - centric, with many potential good choices. I had dessert for a change, and the rhubarb based pastry was delicious. Service was very good. Our waitress was welcoming and pleased to tell us about the Tacoma area."

  • "Food was delish however prices were way over priced and portions were way to small especial for the cost . We spent $112. For two main courses and two beers and left hungry out waitress acted liked she was a scared mouse . Also not alot of food choice. But the little bit of food we had was good"

  • "Pacific Grill was recommended by everyone we asked and we were very happy they did. Dinner was very enjoyable, the food was excellent and the small portion was just right. We will recommend it to anyone who asks us."

  • "Had the smoked Steelhead salmon small plate off bar menu. Way too much sauce that overwhelmed the salmon. As main course had the Weathervane Scallops. Menu descriptions is great, but they came overwhelmed with pepper, so you didn't get the delicate flavor of scallops. Kitchen doesn't understand how to feature the flavor of the main ingredient rather than overwhelm it with uncomplimentary flavors."

  • "We were sat promptly, and the atmosphere was nice a warm...We started off with a couple chicken ceaser salads, which ended up being one of the best salads I've ever had...I highly recommend a steak...Cooked to my liking and awesomely seasoned...The deserts there were really good as well, I would definitely return here..."

  • "Our service was wonderful. We were celebrating 2 birthdays and while they don't do the traditional cheesy things, we had a great time. We sat near the back away from the bar so it wasn't noisy at all."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "Really had great time! My daughter had recommended it before since she goes often and my friend and I were celebrating my birthday! Super fun! And delicious!"
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Very pleasant atmosphere in an historic building next door to the Marriott hotel. The service was attentive, the raw oysters were fresh with the aroma of the sea, and the luncheon entrees quite adequate. The bar was extensive so I imagine that at times it could be very lively."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • " Great energy from a happenin' Tacoma DT spot! It is too bad the place is super noisy. I kept leaning in when my spouse was speaking because I could barely hear a word he said. I felt as though we were yelling at each other. I even asked to be placed in the quietest spot in the restaurant on my reservation. They had apologized and said that the place is real loud no matter where you sit. Other than that, the waiter, David and the food was excellent; however, the kitchen service was slow. We had reservations for 2 at 8 pm on a Friday night and it took them over 1 hour to send us our entrees. (The appetizers were sent upon 15 minutes of ordering.) Be advised not to come here hoping for a quick dinner. "

  • "Hands down one of the best server experiences we've ever had!"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "They were very accommodating and I thoroughly appreciated the waiter explaining everything about the menu. Very helpful and kind staff. The only complaint I would have is that it took a little long to get each course of our meal. Other than that... GREAT PLACE for people who love fine dining."
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "I had expected this restaurant to use fresh ingredients, but I was utterly disappointed. It's easy to tell if a scallop isn't fresh, and even easier if the menu item stated that they are supposed to be Weathervane scallops. There was no sweetness to the scallops like they should have, rather a fishy taste, indication of it not being fresh. To think they charged $32 for 4 of them, I really should have sent them back, but I'm not the type to do that. "

  • "My girlfriend and I have been coming here for three years, it is a great place for a date. The food is always great and the staff is very attentive. You will pay a little more so I would save it for special occasions."

  • "Great food, service and atmosphere for a special event that we had honoring our son, who graduated from UPS. Would definitely come back the next time we are in Tacoma!"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "I took my wife to Pacific Grill for her Birthday after joining the rewards club and receiving a $25 gift voucher. It was prom night in Tacoma so there were dozens of beautifully dressed teenagers looking delightfully awkward to enjoy watching. The chai thai spiced margarita my wife had was undrinkable and my old fashioned was way too sweet. The halibut and salmon cakes were amazing - but TINY. The raw scallop crudo was very flavorful but, again, tiny in portion. We tried the "famous drumsticks" but found them overcooked and dry. My wife had the scallops and I had the black cod - both were outstanding. The bill was $143 which was knocked down to $118 with the voucher. Our server was pre-occupied with the prom kids so service was poor."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Overall, the whole experience was just as others had mentioned it would be. Hands down one of my favorite restaurants! "
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "This is a solid dinner spot for a business event. "
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "You can never go wrong with this restaurant. Consistently wonderful food & a staff that caters to your every need. The bar is lively, gorgeous and always friendly! Lounge fare...to die for but don't miss the revised menu that offers an amazing variety of shareable plates to creative entrees, (all at affordable prices). Never disappointing!"
    Dined on 7/24/2013
  • "Always have a great experience. Food is always top notch, as is the service. The fact I make it up here at least once every few months, braving Friday night Fort Lewis traffic says something. There's nothing I hate more than sitting in traffic. Would recommend and I'll be back again for sure. "

  • "If you own a restaurant, please take note that Pacific Grill excels in all areas. I wish more dining establishments were of this caliber. They work hard to make perfection look easy. A 5 star experience , and a "must see" when visiting Tacoma for restaurants with a great ambiance. From the cheerful hostess welcome, to the attentive ,yet unobtrusive waitstaff. Our server was well versed in the food prep and ingredients. The menu was superb with many delicious choices including vegetarian/vegan and gluten free options. Fresh and sustainable seafood selections were varied in preperation and inspired in their flavor profiles. Thank you to the owner(s), Chefs and support staff for making an excellent fine dining experience for me and my guests. "

  • "This is a great place to go for a special occasion and a possible romantic evening. It's a little on the expensive side, but the food and service is excellent. There is even a valet for $10 with your reservation. (Valet is free for military after 5pm). They have an extensive wine list as well as specialty drinks. The menu is great and sophisticated. It usually has a fish of the day or something special featured on the menu daily. The servers are very attentive and will ensure you are taken care of. Great place to treat yourself to. "
    Dined on 4/23/2014
  • "Everything we ordered was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT -Kudos to the chef! Our waitress was wonderful - she knew her menu, was helpful, positive, and attentive. I thought it was thoughtful (and a pleasant surprise) that they also offer free valet parking to military."

  • "Pacific Grill has been doing great business in Tacoma over the years, and it's wonderful to see! We truly appreciate their effort to include and identify Vegan options on the menu. (Gluten-free is also identified, which seems to be the norm most places these days.) The food was great and the service was excellent. A few of the vegan options could be a bit more adventurous in a restaurant such as Pacific Grill, but we thank them for having them! "

  • "Our waiter was very good . Was attentive but not overly attentive. It is great for special occasion. We were there for our anniversary.The food was delicious . The building is in an old brick building and the view from our table to down town was good. The price point is not for everyone and it was worth every cent we paid. I now know why it is full every day at lunch time. "
