We dined at Aerie on a snowy Sunday in January, and sadly, the views that I'd heard about were nonexistent due to blizzard-like conditions. All we could see were clouds of snow. So, our experience rests upon the service and the food, neither of which were impressive. First of all, when we arrived, the host was not there to greet... More

Overall, the dining experience at the Aerie was very enjoyable. The restaurant atmosphere was elegant - cloth table cloths and napkins, clean surroundings, beautiful views. The food had an air of elegance, with unusual ingredients used by the chef. Presentation was very visually appealing. Prices were about what we expected, and portions about what was expected as well, although not... More

We chose to celebrate our 48th wedding anniversary at Aerie. There are so many great restaurants to choose from in the Traverse City area. The restaurant is beautiful but we were totally disappointed in the quality of the food. We began with the house salad @ $7.00. Was shocked when a plate of white romaine arrived with a few sliced...

The service was great, the restaurant beautiful, but the food was just plain not good. Very small portions, and ultimately flavorless. For a $135 bill, I expect more.

Located on the 16th floor provides a great view of the colorful fall leaves. The food presentation was excellent. However, the taste was not. The kobe meatballs were good, however, overall the food was not good. Several of us did not enjoy the food. And, the service was very slow.

Aerie has moved to the top of my "short list" of best area restaurants. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone visiting the Grand Traverse area.
