Menu
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 and world-class food.

Chef/owner Gordon Naccarato—a former winner of Food & Wine’s coveted 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 menu is extensive and features everything from fresh shucked local oysters and raw Beef Carpaccio to delicious Tacos and locally smoked Steelhead and includes many Vegan and 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 and get the bone-in New York Steak all for yourself, or share tapas-style and try many appetizers like the famous BLT Salad with the world’s best bacon.

And don’t miss their Pastry Chef’s decadent desserts.  The Bar area is packed with guests enjoying Tacoma’s Best Happy Hour as voted by our guests—even beating out our restaurant friends to the north in Seattle. Located in the gorgeously restored historic Waddell Building in the heart of downtown.

Food was good, a little pricey for the portions. While the server was friendly the service was not what one would expect from a venue like this. And to my amazement every table has a reserved sign on it. The hostess then seats you depending on what I'm not sure. My coworker and I, both women, were sat at a small round Corner table while the 2 "business " men were seated at a nice table for 4. In addition a $14 salad does not come with any bread option. You must purchase a loaf. Gotta say I liked the atmosphere but would not recommend it nor will I return. :/

You get what you pay for, it's no surprise this place is on the pricier side. #1 tip, during the week sit in the bar; happy hour is all day, m-f, with probably the most extensive menu in Tacoma.

4/7/15 - While the food was quite good my meal with a group of customers was ruined when I found a 1-1/2" coiled metal wire in my grilled scallops. The chef would not acknowledge it came from the kitchen. The waitress was extremely apologetic as we both agreed it looked like a wire from a flat-top cleaning pad. Our waitress was very kind and offered 2 free desserts. I was amazed that no one from management or the kitchen made any apology or even acknowledged the event. They left our poor waitress hung out to dry. She was a total class act, however I'll never recommend or return based upon how those in management completely mishandled the event.

Bradley, I am very sorry about your experience at Pacific Grill. Our General Manager was not in that day and she would like to talk to you about what happened. If you could email her at Carol@pacificgrilltacoma.com or call her at 253-627-3535 she would appreciate it. Thank you, Jacob Rose Pacific Grill

Great Surprise, we were in the area and used Google to find a local restaurant. All day happy hour in the bar had great small plates for me and my girl to share. Since we didn't have a specific type of food we wanted, it was great to have samples of all. The staff was really polite as well. I wish Seattle had one of these.

Why can't they cook a vegetarian risotto? Just take the meat out and use vegetarian broth instead. Don't have vegetarian broth, which that would be weird anyway bc it's easy to find, ok... so use your imagination. After all you are a chef! Work with what you've got. Such an expensive restaurant and can't improvise? Wow... so I had to eat the same meal that I had it before bc I didn't have any other option. Also had an appetizer, but it was so tasteless that I didn't even remember what it was.

Outstanding service. Lovely cocktails. The food was... hit and miss. The appetizers we had were solid and satisfying- bacon wrapped dates, seafood cocktail, kumamotos, charcuterie. All good. Cheese was cold, a detail I would have expected a restaurant charging 35 dollars for three scallops would not have overlooked. The entrees just didn't merit the price. And I have gleefully paid 50 or 60 dollars for an entree elsewhere. The plating was lovely, but the execution left me wanting. Maybe an off night? I'd happily go again, but probably for happy hour rather than dinner.

I had the crab cake sliders off the happy hour menu, for what you pay at half price they are amazing. This price is very very pricey if your not ordering off the happy hour menu. The chips that came with the slides were tasty but rather dry. Service was great.

Service slow. Salads were terrible and overpriced and a charge to switch to different potatoes and veggies is wrong.

This recipe was provided by chef Jessica Armstrong Sewell, from Pacific Grill, during our recent Do Something Healthy event in Tacoma, Washington.

Jessica took her inspiration from everyone's favorite dish — fried rice — and substituted quinoa, a super food packed with nutrients and very high in fiber.

Look who Chef Gordon was spotted dining with last night:
Thierry Rautureau (or whoever manages his account) just tweeted "Spotted at LUC last night for dinner on the patio! Tom Colicchio, Thierry Rautureau & Chris Constantino[sic]." Meanwhile...
