I like the setting at the bar for just 2. The lighting, great bartender, overall beautiful atmosphere in this classic building is wonderful. Great wine selection. Dinner was amazing. I had the grilled salmon (not overcooked-perfect!) & would recommend that if you don't care for beef (hubs choice). A very nice menu selection is offered. The cassoulet looked scrumptious as...

Enjoyed our time at the Pacific Grill. Service is great we were never rushed. Food – appetizers - salad – entrées - Desert all very good. To complaints that are minor but still affected and kept it from being a five star. 1. It may just be me, but if I'm paying $170 for dinner then don't charge me for... More

OK for the occasionsal dinner, although T-town has a variety of other restaurants that have great food at cheaper price. Lunch is a better bet.

Service is quick and unobtrusive. Food is fresh and tasty. Prices are expected. Atmosphere is calm and relaxed. Everything has an air of luxury, but on a very comfortable level.

I had a meeting at this restaurant and had the steak sandwich as well as oysters. Where I would not come in for an intimate time, it is good for a lunch or dinner break. The oysters were amazing, had a few different types. The steak sandwich was not as great. Soggy baguette and the meat was average. For the... More

This is a great spot! The place is old school sophistication. Sit at the bar. Bartender was crazy knowledgeable. Award onion rings are super interesting but the star was the smoked steelhead app. TOTALLY worth it! Parking is a challenge and the ticket police are enthusiastic. But seriously. Put this on your list!!!

I'm really not overly picky (don't review a lot, but normally give great reviews when I do). My wife and I went to Pacific Grill for the first time for our 30th anniversary. My wife had the Steelhead, and the carrot curry soup. It was great. I ordered 6 oysters on the half shell and they were great as well.... More
