    I recently took two clients there for lunch during mid week. The food was as good as always but our waiter was rushed & kept pushing us for an order though we'd only recently sat down. Once he took our order we never saw him again until the end of meal to ask who was getting check. I had to flag down wait staff twice to ask for drink refills. I've always gotten much better service than this at Pacific Rim. While I would return, as a salesperson, I doubt I'll bring clients again because I expect better service for business lunches.

    We were celebrating our anniversary early, and I had a craving for sushi. Since my husband doesn't like sushi, I googled "Sushi and Thai restaurants" and we landed on Pacific Rim Bistro. So glad we did. The food was amazing, they volunteered to take our picture (I think they thought we were tourists which we almost were, since we're new to Atlanta), but then, when we told them "Yes, we're celebrating our anniversary, we'd love a picture," they not only took a great pic, but gave us a complimentary ice cream (green tea, my favorite, plus vanilla and mango) as a gift for our anniversary. They even boxed up our leftovers. I was blown away! Check them out, even if you just like the bar scene. They had quite a happy-hour crowd!

    We decided to have a meal out while we were in town for a large convention. The sushi was good and about on price for what you'd expect for a good sushi restaurant, though some of the specialty rolls were on the high side for my tastes. The restaurant was rather busy with the influx of people in town which did play in the detriment of service; however, once our server was aware of us we didn't have to wait too much for drinks, food, etc. All in all a good experience.

    Pacific Rim is a gem of a restaurant, nestled in among the high rises of downtown Atlanta. The service is great as is the food Love, love, love the Obento box choices. There is also a sushi menu from which to choose. Great people watching spot, especially when something is going on in town.

    The food was OK, nothing great. I had a shrimp dish. The sauce was heavy, and obliterated the taste of the shrimp. A group was having a big birthday party, and even far away from them, the noise was so loud I couldn't hear myself think.

    One block away from the Marriott, if you're looking for a change from hotel restaurants. Had a lovely spot outdoors for a group of 6. One thing that really impressed me was the hostess asking our group if anyone minded smoking as they were potentially going to place another group next to our table. That was a fabulous consideration. Everyone was courteous and professional and the food divine. I highly recommend the apple dessert, it's shareable and absolutely wonderful, everyone loved it.

    My boyfriend and I had a date here on a Friday night. We had made a reservation for 8 pm and showed up 15 minutes early, and were seated immediately. The starters we ordered were very tasty but a little pricey. We then ordered two different sushi rolls, which came out right after we finished our starters. Overall a good experience.

    I was looking for something near the Marriott Marquis and spotted PRB. I checked out their reviews - which were very good - and decided to give it a try. I wasn't disappointed. The ginger martini was great; Hamachi was fresh and buttery and reasonably priced (it comes plain so I would recommend adding a side of ponzu and jalapenos - great flavor combo). The duck was the best I have ever had - perfectly cooked, crispy skin, moist inside, and the flavors were classic Asian. We will definitely be back next time we travel to ATL.

    The bento boxes at Pacific Rim are always good, and this visit was no exception. The miso soup is always good, the salad is fresh and the dressing tasty, and the masaman shrimp curry was delicious. The prices are reasonable, especially considering the downtown location, and the restaurant is spotless, with a courteous staff. The arrival of the food was noticeably slower on this visit than is typical, but the restaurant was packed. Our waiter was serving inside and outside tables, and we could see that he was hustling, so the kitchen apparently got a little backed up. I was happy to notice that the latest health inspection certificate for Pacific Rim had a 100 (highest possible) rating.

    My husband and I were in Atlanta on business, and were given a list of restaurants by a friend. We choose this one based on the menu we saw on the website. It completely lived up to the expectations. The staff was extremely friendly, the service was great, and the food was fantastic. We eat sushi often, and we were very pleased with the variety of the menu. There was a lot of different dishes we had not seen before in other restaurants. We will definitely be eating there again on future trips.

    We went in for a 7:30 birthday dinner and we did not leave until 10 pm. Everything just took a long time. The server did not split checks and he could not remember what anyone had. We had to do that for him. It was kind of a mess. The restaurant seems nice though, and the sushi was very good; although a little pricey.

    I was there for dinner with a customer of mine. The food was great. However, the service was not at the same level. We sat down for about 5 minutes before someone asked us if we have been helped. This is a little hard to believe since we were there at 6:00 PM and only two other tables were ahead of us. Everything was good once we get started.

    Liked the look of the place and high hopes for the food. The fried dumplings were spot on, good dipping sauces. Sashimi was very good. The biggest disappointment was the Thai basil prawns. The prawns lacked flavor, just wanted more flavor in this dish. Friendly service. Would not return.

    We got there early on a Saturday night and the place was quiet but started to fill up as we ate. Very quiet and relaxing. We enjoyed the steamed dumplings appetizer (special) and I loved my pad thai with shrimp and chicken. I like things a little spicier then how they prepared it but I requested some hot chili sauce, so was able to boost the temperature to my liking. Service was pleasant.

    We have eaten at Pacific Rim a number of times of the past years and have always had an enjoyable dining experience. The restaurant was moderaltely crowded when we arrived and had a lively bar clientele. We were seated quickly and the wait staff appeared quickly. Drinks arrived quickly. Ordered the Vietnamese spring rolls and Mongolian beef soft tacos. Both were delicious. Wife ordered the shrimp and scallops and I had the Seven-season beef. Once again, the food was delicious. We have never been disappointed.

    We had a great dining experience from start to finish. The sushi was fresh, the main meals plentiful and tasty. The atmosphere is nice, simply done with a modern edge. Totally recommend this restaurant if you are staying in the downtown area. It will not disappoint. Also, the service was spot on, they didn't try to rush us, even though the restaurant was very crowded. Our server was attentive to our every need.

    I was excited to try this restaurant, the menu looked great. The atmosphere is very nice. That is the end of the goodness. The service was the worst I can ever remember having. We were never asked about drinks until after ordering dinner. The coconut chicken soup was primarily tofu, the sushi was fine but not that good, and the sea bass was most likely not sea bass, it was tough and stringy. Since we had essentially no waiter it was not easy to return it. A very lackluster meal. especially for the price we paid. After ten minutes of waiting for a check we had to find the waiter and ask for it. I was really astounded with how consistently bad this restaurant was... AVOID AVOID AVOID
