great food poor service
The food was excellent but my service was horrible.I usually have Michael as my server and he it's the best. Fast efficient and courteous.the lady I had seemed like she was tired and she didn't want to serve my girlfriend and I. The food was awesome as usually. Any way my food was great. To make the experience better hire more Michael's and give me my Michael.

Overall good experience
The Hawaiian Ahi Tuna was delicious...definitely made the experience worth it. The only critique we have is it was a little on the expensive side and was really no vegetarian options. Other than that, everything was overall great.

Always a stop when I'm in
Always a stop when I'm in Town. Food and wine are first rate and the service is wonderful. Look forward to my next visit.

A Perfect Dining Experience
On this specific evening, I was visiting my mother (from PA) and had wanted to take her someplace special for her birthday, as she does not eat out much. Pacific Grill had solid reviews and an attractive menu.
Because my mother is older and disabled, I wanted to make certain that she would be comfortable wherever we were seated, and the hosts with whom I spoke were very understanding and helpful, making sure that a booth was available for our party. Our server was polite and patient with my mother. Our orders were perfectly made and delicious. It was absolutely wonderful to see my mother enjoy herself in the way that she did.
As both a customer and a person who works in the industry, Pacific Grill effortlessly earns a five-star review.

Birthday Dinner Done Well
I took my husband and some friends to Pacific Grill for his birthday dinner. We were seated immediately and given prompt attentive service. The menu is wide with some very nice specifics. I highly recommend the "Faux Gras," with a smoked apple overtone and my personal favorite, the blue cheese tater tots. Enjoy!

New menu revives an old favourite
Since my last visit a couple of months ago, PG has shifted to a new menu which allows a lot more flexibility in how to build a meal. This now offers the ability to get several sizes of a given dish, allowing to do everything from traditional entrees to a series of shared small plates for a couple or group. Dish quality remains good, though the seafood/fish selections were a little on the sparse side. The highlight for us was a smoked steelhead chirashi, which was delcious and well presented. We went on a Tuesday night, which was half-price bottle night for wine. This is the only thing that makes the bottle price acceptable since they run ~400% of lower end retail. Overall recommended, but a little spendy for what you get.

Great menu, attentive service
The menu is different, not only in content, but it portions. The small size options page is large, varied and good. We tried several and enjoyed them all. They would make great accompaniments to drinks in the bar or for light appetites. And the prices were good. The "regular" menu was varied and again had large and small portions which is much more enjoyable for all diners. Highly recommend for good food and and enjoyable evening. John was a great waiter, too....lots of fun and knowledgeable.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food...a real winner!!!
Although I was somewhat disappointed that they changed their menu it was still very very delicious.
Their desserts are to die for.....we will make it one of our favorite resturaunts from now on.

Fresh, innovative and truly special
I took my parents when they visited and the experience was lovely. I choose several small plates because it was nearly impossible to choose from such a strong menu. Local seafood, plenty of sustainable choices, and excellent flavor and presentation. You get what you pay for (though the price tag certainly isn't exorbitant). Free parking in the convention center lots (except c), so no circling the block. Knowledgeable, experienced and friendly service; our server had five years at PG and it showed.

My husband and i went here for our anniversary, and the food was amazing! I had scallops which were perfectly cooked and delicious.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was really really good. I am let down by restaurant food these days since I married an amazing and experimental foodie and cook. This was as good as homemade. Very fresh ingredients.
Impressive menu for vegetarians and meat people.
Nice atmosphere with lots of people on dates who stayed a long time.
The only drawback was the music devolved into cheesy nightclub stuff at about 9 for bar-appeal
We had the Potted Salmon app. Very delicate and happy
Then, my wife had a kale salad which had a lot of life to it. I had the steak salad which was very tasty and well-balanced but heavy, which seems normal
Then, we shared the scallops. Way good! cooked with potatoes and excellent bacon.
Great cocktails too
I will recommend the place and return!

A Great Find
This restaurant was close to the Hotel Murano so we walked there one night for dinner. What a treat! Since we had dinner there on a Tuesday night, the noise level was fine. It was also half off on most wines so that was an extra benefit. Server was great and the food was wonderful. We recommend the cheese platter. A nice place if you are in Tacoma!
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice little restraunt
Good food. Tables for 2 a little large, takes away some intimacy. Appetizers ready at the same time as meal. Other than that great dood and friendly staff.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect for any occasion, either night out with friends or loved ones. Perfect for dinner with family. Amazing wine list (they have moet!!!)
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Chef Gordon's new menu is outstanding. All of the new additions with the small plates that are perfectly yummy to share, the crudo items, plus some of his staples.....and incredible dinner.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Hats off to the chefs at Pacific Grill. Great flavors, beautiful plates.appreciated the valet attendant's good cheer, and what a great gesture to offer free valet service to our military!
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were pleasantly surprised, the food was awesome, the food was perfect and the service was incredible, we look forward to our next visit. We are from Portland OR

A gem in Tacoma
It was a great dining experience with excellent service and delicious food. Menu has an appropriate variety. It is a very comfortable restaurant in Tacoma, WA.

Happy Hour Happiness
PG is o1 of the best places to go for Happy Hour if you are near downtown Tacoma. You can enjoy a great dinner w/ their HH menu. Tuesday's are 1/2 price wine night & this is also available in the bar. We enjoyed the chopped wedge salad w/ shrimp...it is huge & could easily be a meal in itself. I also ordered the fish & chips (thinking the salad would be much smaller); I ended up taking most of that home. The salad is delicious-I would highly recommend it. The fish&chips are yummy too. They use rosemary while preparing it, which I am usually not a fan of, but I enjoyed it in this dish. Their house wine is good- at $5 a glass during hh it works! They do not watch their wine pours very carefully-hubby got ALOT more in his 2nd pour than I did.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
An excellent selection of gluten-free items for my gluten intolerant spouse. Nothing ruins a special dinner out like an allergic reaction . I'm a vegan, and was satisfied with my options and thrilled the prices weren't marked up to match the price of a steak. Our food was clean, delicious, and the service was superb. Finally, a romantic place that satisfies both out dietary needs. Thanks, Pacific Grill!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
1st time--very nice
1st time we went after numerous recommendations from friends---a wonderful meal, with fantastic service in a great setting---we were very pleased and also felt that the prices were reasonable. We will return and recommend to others.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic Food & Service
The waitor was friendly & funny. Provided us with a good choice of wine.
The stuffed avacado was superb.
I had the tenderloin steak cooked perfectly with yummy grilled asparagus.
The cheese cake and carmal ice cream was delicious.
The atmosphere was warm & friendly. I would highly recommend The Pacific Grill to anyone. Can't wait to go there again.

Thi was for my grandparents 50th anniversary and they said they lived it. Thank you for making it a great night for them.

Wish we'd found it sooner!!
We've lived in the Tacoma area since June of 2011 and just recently went to Pacific Grill. We wish we had gone sooner!! By far our favorite restaurant we've been to in the area! A must go to place!
10/3/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great location, ambiance and food. All around a nice time.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent, as always
Outstanding service, ambiance and cuisine. Our long time favorite restaurant in Tacoma for romantic dinners. The filet mignon with potato-gruyere gratin never disappoints, and the lobster risotto is wonderful. We like that there are two sizes available for most entrees, and you can also make a great mix-and-match meal out of the tapas-style "small plates" too. The menu is an eclectic mix of flavors from the Northwest and around the world.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Gluten Free Options!!
They have clearly marked gf options and are willing to make substitutions.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was great, loved the steak frites... Just enough food for dinner! Desserts were delicious as well! Very nice of them to offer free valet parking for military :)
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful service, great food.
My wife and I have dietary issues and Pacific Grill was great in checking for our needs by changing, and recommending some different choices. The BLT salad was superior and we both enjoyed the Cauliflower Steak. My Steak salad was very good as well.
The atmosphere is very good making for a nice evening out!
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent restaurant for chit-chat
This is my 2nd time in this restaurant...and the menu selection is fantastic. Service is excellent and this time was again with guests. We had a great time, especially with the appetizer - slices of bread with olive oil, seasoned tomatoes and garlic. Just an awesome place to bring customers, a loved one for a romantic lunch/dinner, and friends. Highly recommended.
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was our first time at Pacifc Grill and it was an amazing experience. The setting is very romantic and we are glad we dressed nice as you would not want to wear jeans to this place! Server was very pleasant and checked on us regularly. Food was excellent! The Kansas City Strip steak was mouth watering along with the optional add-on petite lobster tail. The deserts are very unique as they don't have your run-of-the-mill stuff. We had the cheesecake which was great but only wished it was larger in size and had the Rockin Rocha Brownie which was outstanding and you have to try! Overall, would highly recommend going especially for a date or anniversary.

I was thankful to have a reservatio
I was thankful to have a reservation because the restaurant was packed, but we were seated relatively quickly (compared to those who were waiting without a reservation). However, because the restaurant was quite full, it took a long time for our main course to arrive. Our starters came out quickly, but then we were left waiting abnormally long for our meals. The waiter was very apologetic and obviously was frustrated by the situation. I think it would have been nice if we were offered bread while we waited, especially since we had cocktails (needed something to balance out the alcohol). We finally asked for some bread to help counter the effects of the alcohol, and we found out that we were charged $2 for it! Oh well.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
We went to the Pacific Grill to celebrate our anniversary. The server went out of his way to make it special for us. It was a very memorable night. Highly recommend.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
A Gem of a Find
The menu is outstanding and a wide variety staff are great.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a great experience. All the preparation in advance paid off. The staff was prepared for my visit and they treated us like royalty.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food is prepared by a chef, Everything is special and it shows.... ***** 5 stars
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
The place looked amazing, server was great, everything was perfect... except the steak... I ordered the Kansas City strip en lieu of the New York as the do not serve one. The steak was tough to get through and I had to resort to picking it up. Honestly though, everything else was exceptional.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Well Matched Food and Service
The only time I've been disappointed with the food at the Pacific Grill is when they no longer offer something on the menu that I loved. For example, their bisque-like parsnip soup was absolutely wonderful, but possibly they didn't get enough people to try it. Otherwise, the filet mignon (larger portion) and their scallops are always perfect. This time we really loved the creamy polenta. I also loved the scalloped sweet potatoes that accompanied my steak. Much better than the regular white potato version. Our server, Daniel, answered questions and made sure everything was perfect our us.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
I came here on Thanksgiving
I came here on Thanksgiving with my wife, and her brother and mom. The atmosphere was very relaxed, and they had a good menu for the night. The drinks were unique and pretty good. The food though was great. We got turkey dinner, filet mignon, kansas city strip and a steel head. I thought the filet and steelhead were the best dishes. Waiter was pretty good too, didn't bother us much but made sure we had what we needed. This isn't the first time I have been here and they have been pretty consistent in every category, so I will keep coming back. It's definitely pricey but I think its pretty worth it for special occasions.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was our first time at Pacific Gril. I had heard great things about it and wanted to try it because it it local. This is a special gem in Tacoma. What a wonderful suprise when you enter behind the long velvet drapes. The ambience is great a real nice adult dining resturant in Tacoma.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Love Pacific Grill!
Pacific Grill is becoming one of our favorite restaurants. The smoked steelhead appetizer is amazing as are the weathervane scallops. Taryn was our server the last two times we were there and she is great. She is very knowledgeable about the food and gave us great recommendations. Planning on skipping the Meeting Pot and going to the Pacific Grill for my birthday in three weeks.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Sharing a favorite restaurant
My wife and I took our son and his wife out to celebrate his birthday. We haven't had a chance to just sit and talk with the two of them for years. Usually the grandkids and activities dominate. We treated at Pacific Grill in downtown Tacoma. Our server, Luke, did a good job for us even though it was a crowded evening at the restaurant. They enjoyed the food as did we. Since we were very familiar with the selections we made recommendations. The food was excellent, of course. They enjoyed the bbq pork loin with red banana ketchup as well as the scallops and filet mignon. We had a nice evening. We'll have to do this, again.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Pacific Grill is noted for having one of the best happy hours in town. For our anniversary we ventured away feom our happy hour standards and had dinner. We had excellent pork chops with a house mad chunky applesauce. The BLT salad, wild mushroom soup, and Devil's Eggs did not disappoint. Hubby raved about the apple donut dessert as well. Nice exposed brick interior and flawless service.
12/1/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and service, Pacific
Great food and service, Pacific Grill works very hard to cater to dietary concerns and has come up with great options for my gluten and dairy free diet. Try the Cauliflower Steak, it is a great appetizer or substitute for potato, the BLT salad is a must! The Tenderloins were done to perfection. Best Manhattan in the city!
12/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Service was great
Our server was great. We always had a full glass of water, but we never felt like we were being hovered around. The food was great on top of that. Gotta try the Asian Steelhead, so good!
12/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a great time. The food was very good, but the service and ambience were outstanding. The server did a wonderful job making recommendations as to what to eat! Both of our steaks were cooked just as we requested, and our drinks were divine. We decided to go all out and get dessert, and we write so glad we did. Everything was outstanding!
