Surprisingly outstanding food & great service.

I'm not usually blown away with hotel restaurants, but since the Pond stopped serving breakfast at 11:00, or closed, or something very confusing we had to go to this other restaurant. I was a little miffed by the huge array of petite chairs, I even asked for a grown up chair but they had none, so I... read more

We enjoyed Devon as our waitress. She was witty and knowledgeable. The atmosphere was non-pretentious and relaxed and our food was absolutely amazing. We would definitely dine here again if we had the opportunity.

We had large family gathering at Aurora. The service by Heather @ one table was fantastic. She was friendly willing to split up checks by family & very accommodating. However @ our table we had the Elizabeth who was cold & told our table she was NOT allowed to give separate checks. She also tried jacking up the check by... More

Unfortunately for the chef, the wait staff and receptionist murdered any chance of us giving this restaurant anything but the lowest rating.

We ordered smoked salmon pizza and spaghetti bolognese. The pizza was good but the spaghetti was greasy. When we told the waitress she said "it is a meat sauce you know". But to her credit she removed it from the bill and we just had the pizza.

Spouse, adult son, and I stopped here for lunch while on day trip from Anchorage. Despite some negative reviews, we found the service and food to be quite nice. No complaints at all. Son had pizza, spouse and I had burgers. They were each cooked as ordered, and mine came with the bun on the side, as I had requested.... More

I came in late, and needed to eat something. After 30 minutes, my pizza was warm, not hot. Still quite good, just could have been better. I heard the waitress giving apologies to several tables, not sure for what. With a little training, this can improve.

The restaurant has a nice view of the tram and Chair 7. The service was far beyond expectations for a hotel restaurant. They offer excellent salads, soups and great pizza. If you have a chance add reindeer sausage to the pizza. The beef is excellent quality. Troy did an excellent job and ensured that every part of the meal was... More
