a note to our guests

During this time, our thoughts are with those affected by COVID-19 and we thank those who are working to stop the spread of the virus in our community and worldwide.


We want to extend our gratitude to everyone who ordered to-go or delivery from us this week – we appreciate your support during these challenging circumstances. As the situation within our community continues to change, and in the best interest of our employees, we decided to temporarily close our restaurants until you, our guests, and staff can return to a healthy and safe environment.


We look forward to celebrating with you and your friends when we beat this together. Stay strong and stay healthy, Tacoma.


To continue to support our business during this unprecedented event, we welcome you to PURCHASE A GIFT CARD ONLINE to use once we open again.

We look forward to serving you once again when we reopen our doors.

- The Rhein Haus Tacoma Team

Each with their own separate ventures, James and Deming first partnered to open Bastille in 2009, a Parisian-inspired restaurant in Ballard. The success of that opening solidified their partnership, and the subsequent development of JWD4 Design, a consulting partnership that specializes on the design, layout and atmosphere development for restaurants, cafés, hotels, bars and breweries. The opening of Poquitos was borne from their collective desire to offer authentic presentations of Mexican cuisine in a space designed with the Spanish colonial aesthetics of Mexico in mind. Together with their business partners, they have gone on to open Macleod’s Fish & Chips and Scottish Pub, three Rhein Haus locations, Stoneburner, and Beer Star.
