Great food, lovely setting... a perfect place to celebrate our daughter's college graduation.
Excellent atmosphere, service, and food. Picked PG for a graduation dinner and it did not disappoint
If you do a brunch, don't pass this place up! I've had great dinners there but, the brunch is amazing, tempura fried thick slab bacon and dirty fries with ice cold beer is near heavenly!
Although the food was good, I felt in general it was over priced. Also very disappointed they didn't have a Pinot Gris or Pinot Grigio by the glass. Bottled wine was expensive, too.
Absolutely wonderful meal and service. This is a special occasion type of restaurant, but the prices are worth it for the quality you receive.
I would recommend it with some reservations on some of the menu items.
My husband's dish with steel head trout was very good. I had the steamers and they were really lacking in flavor. They were very bland. I would not order this dish again. The specialized drink menu was a bust as it turns out we were at the end of the time period before the menu was being switched so the wine and the cocktail we originally picked were both out. Overall it was OK. The dessert menu was not impressive to my taste. It seemed like almost everything had nuts except one ice cream or sorbet item. For the size of the dessert menu I didn't see one thing worth spending the calories on. I'm sure I'm pickier than most on desserts.
The food was wonderful and the service was excellent. The inside of the restaurant to very beautiful
Pacific Grill is one of my favorite places to have a special dinner with my daughter. Love it!
We chose this restaurant due to the location and yelp photos. When we walked in for our 8:30 reservation, we were told it was 'happy hour' and seated at a table by the window. The window seating was nice, but there was no tablecloth on the table, the tabletop was laminate, and it seemed rather informal compared to the photos online. I asked to be seated near the back where it looked like the ambience was nicer, but they were closing down the other seating and wanted us to stay up front. When our server came over she asked for my 19 year old niece's photo ID after she ordered water. We were told we could not sit 'in the bar'.... This was a fairly large area by the front window with tables and chairs, it didn't look like a bar area. Anyway, that was awkward, so we were moved to the other area that we previously had requested, fine. The food service was very rushed afterwards. Ordered oysters, salad and entrees. Food was average at best. Disappointing.
Nice place, a little dark. My avocado eggs Bennie was not very warm, tiny English muffins- nothing special, especially for cost- but my husbands hash was good and my friend's chilichiles was as well. So hit and miss. For the cost should be all around excellent. We did enjoy the bottomless Mimosas :) I'd give it a try again.
The food was very original and tasted so very fresh...
I drove 2hrs to get there and it was well worth the drive.
I will be going back :)
Nice atmosphere and great location but way over priced. Oysters were minuscule, main dish was over salty. Was hoping for seafood, but limited menu. Pork chops were overlooked. Potato soup was delicious but was exorbitantly priced at $9.95. Was planning on purchasing a bottle of wine but there were no selections under $60. We enjoyed wine by the glass and had a very nice Pinot.
Our server did nothing to make our experience warm or special and did not offer service as would be expected for the prices on the menu. I would not recommend Pacific Grill.
Our waitress was really great. Everything was, actually, until we headed out and stopped by the bar for a glass of sipping tequila. The 'tender was surly and when we tried to have a little fun banter with him he said, "...and I have the right to refuse service as well". It was completely uncalled for and put a real sour taste to an otherwise wonderful night.
Brunch was great the added bottomless mimosas & Bloody Marys were a bonus. Service was attentive and friendly.
Good but not great and for the prices they charge they can and should be better
We had a fantastic meal. They went above and beyond in making our birthday guy feel special while still being professional. Frankly nothing I can complain about!
The service is excellent and the menu is diverse. Food is delicious and portions are filling. On the expensive side, but a memorable experience for a special date night. A 15 minute walk to the Pantages. Another great bonus. You can walk off your dinner and catch a great show. Loved it!!
Dinner before the theatre. Handcrafted cocktails were delicious. Followed by oysters on the half shell and then entrees which were superb. Friendly waitstaff and very helpful with menu and wine list. Great experience!
We are regular diners and love everything about Pacific Grill! Valet parking, wonderful friendly people, delicious food, excellent wine, great atmosphere and perfect timing though every course.
The best dining experience in Tacoma; concierge parking a must! Be clear when making reservations that if you need it designate booth or booth and seat.....
Yummy pork chops! Awesome service!
after making reservations and ask for a table in the back away from the noise of the bar area , when we arrived the host insisted we took the table by the window next to the bar, when I reminder her of my request . She acted annoyed and made us wait for 15 minutes while she kept sitting people that were arriving with out reservation . When I went and stood in front of her desk she finally gave us a table. The two ittems from the menu that we order were not longer available, our second choices were swimming on fat. The waitres was pleasent and attentive and we did finally get a quiet table in the back . But over all no worth the drive from Vashon .
By Far The Best In The City...Foodie Paradise For Sure...Loved The Boozy Brunch
Great service great food. Had the Waddell omelet- fantastic! Oyster shooters are a must-have.
Went here for my Mom's 40th Birthday on Sunday and the food was AMAZING! We all had something different and paired it with either bottomless Mimosas or Bloody Mary's. The mimosas were fresh and delicious, and my mom and friend said the Bloody Mary was easily the best one they have ever had. We got Steak and Eggs, Avocado and Salmon Toast, Shrimp and Grits, Tortilla Mexican Breakfast Hash, and Mimosa Monkey Bread, and between everyone exchanging bites, we were all impressed with everything! We also started with the Tempura Bacon, but how to you go wrong with breaded and deep friend bacon?! The only complaint I have is that we told them it was my mom's birthday when we sat down, but they didn't do anything for her or even mention it, and my friend asked for a dinner menu to look at their options for future visits, and they never brought it. Other than that, it was a wonderful experience and the Boozy Brunch is a must have experience. We will be back! Don't wait, go to Pacific Grill as soon as you can, it is so worth it!
Very friendly staff. Great wine choices. Amazing ambience. Prices a little high for quality of food and drinks. But overall good experience. Will return.
Great food and drinks
All-day happy hour is a great deal. Seating in front with outdoor light from view windows is nice, and you can order off happy-hour items (half-price) as well as dining room menu. My smoked salmon canapes were prepared with all the goodies I like, and the spice cake with vanilla ice-cream made a great ending to the meal. Coffee was bold and flavorful too. Definite go-to place in Tacoma.
Love this place!!! Brought my sister from Florida to have a great dinner after a long day of traveling. K8 was great and took care of our every needs paying close attention to detail without disturbing our conversation. Our waters were always full and she checked back to make sure our cocktails and wine were perfect and also kept full! We started with the Cheese Toast which was perfectly seasoned and melted to perfection. My sister had the New York with cheesy mashed potatoes and mushrooms (she doesn't even like mushrooms and she ate them all)!!! I had the Cauliflower Steak which was also AMAZING and a great vegetarian option for an entree! After dinner we moved over to the bar where Matthew took great care of us as well!!! His flair and genuine service was a perfect ending to our night! Thank you Pacific Grill for making us feel special! :)
We went to Sunday Brunch and was it not only delicious but the service was phenomenal!!! Definitely going back!
We celebrated my birthday and the birthday of a close friend and had a great time. Lately the device here has been hit or miss but it was a hit tonight. Terrific food & service. This continues to be one of favorites dinner spots in Tacoma.
Had a very enjoyable evening. Service was very good and the meal was outstanding. Very good portion although I would have loved one more shrimp in the pasta.
Good food, happy they kept our reservation when we were 15 minutes late
Great! This place has great food, atmosphere and decent priced menu items. Great place for a date, friends etc.
I will defiantly visit again!
Everything was good. Our waiter was nice...food was good. Table was ready but the hostess did not acknowledge me upon entering.....kind of odd as a 51 yr old man being ignored by what looked to be a teenager. She was occupied with the computer but not on the phone...I stated that I would like to check in on my reservation and she said "one moment" and finished what she was doing. I stated that I was 30 min early and just wanted to check in and wait in the bar. She turned to a youger hostess and said table 22 without once looking up. Not a good start for a place that I normally enjoy. Probably wont be back as I can go to Asado or Over the Moon and not have that happen.
The menu is confusing and the offerings seem random.
The service was a bit off their normally exceptional service. My soup came without a spoon and it took me more than a few minutes to wave down the waitress. My client asked if they had hot tea and when she was told yes ordered it, but had iced tea served to her. Everyone can have an off day - I will go again and I am sure it will be better.
We made reservations for dinner and were seated promptly in a booth upon arrival. Our server was friendly and knew all the details about the entrees and their accompaniments. Our choices exceeded our expectations. It was a great experience overall.
My husband and I went for our 5th wedding anniversary on 2/28 (we're a leap year couple). The food was beyond amazing. The service and attentiveness of the wait staff was amazing. I will most definitely go back. Have recommended it to many.
The overall experience was quite nice. Since it was our first visit to your restaurant we only had our friends' reviews to go by. And it did live up to the our expectations.
