Good menu selection, food quality, presentation and service made for a good experience. The views create a superior ambiance. Wine list was pretty good as well.

Had a great dinner in Aerie. Restaurant is located on the 16th floor of the hotel and you get a great view of the area from all sides. Ordered just a bunch of appetizers and everything was great. Wait staff was very attentive as well. Pricey but food, service, and view were worth it!

On the 16th floor of the tower at the Grand Traverse Resort. An incredible outlook over Lake Michigan. And the food matches the view. I started with the oyster chowder. Very tasty, but hard to choose over the white gazpacho. My wife loved her grilled Caesar salad with white anchovies. We split the potato crusted snapper, crisp and tasty, accompanied... More

Incredible views from the top of the tower restaurant. Food and service were excellent. Portions on the small side for the price with no sides.

Something has happened here recently. At 11:30 on a Sunday, there were six tables for Sunday brunch. Part of the problem was the lack of cohesiveness of the brunch itself. It was particularly weird yesterday. There used to be a marvelous smoked salmon and other seafood table. That's been replaced by a salad bar of the same caliber as, "Ruby... More

We enjoyed Aerie during Restaurant Week this year. Restaurant week can be a time to really wow people, or to do the bare minimum because it is often a more inexpensive price point for the finer restaurants. Aerie made us want to come back and order off the regular menu, for sure. Interesting menu offerings for the 3-course prix fixe... More
