My girlfriend and I were making a day of it with shopping and hanging out. We decided to go for a glass of wine and a couple small dishes. The decor is bold with the contrast of red and white. The chairs were cheap and uncomfortable. We were sat at a table first next to a family with small children,... More

NANA is the new management team for the Muse Restaurant in the Anchorage Museum. While not as excellent as Marx Brothers, the former management team, NANA presents a very good menu with excellent choices. Do drop by; you will not be disappointed. They do have a happy hour menu from 4:00 -> 6:00 PM.

I thought the Anchorage Museum only had a small coffee shop, imagine my delight in discovering a full service restaurant that is open for lunch and dinner. The décor is artistically modern. I love the deep red accented walls and matching chairs. The restaurant was decorated for the holidays and I enjoyed the view of the whimsical Alaskan animal sculptures... More

After visiting the latest traveling exhibit at the Anchorage museum, we stopped for a short happy hour before dinner. What an amazing surprise. This bar/restaurant had creative delicious apps and good prices. The cozy atmosphere made me wish we were staying longer. I hope we can try it for dinner next time I am in town. Nice extra, you can... More

This restaurant is inside the Anchorage Museum and has a bright clean decor. The service was very slow and the waiter confused the order. The food itself was good but a bit expensive for the poor service.

The architects almost forgot to leave space for a big restaurant, but the long, narrow space has been turned into an elegant restaurant, which is run by Nana Corporation. They know how to make the most out of this venu, and the food is always varied, good. It makes for a nice evening when one goes to the muse first,... More

I thought this was a pretty average restaurant, with Alaska size prices. To start with, it doesn't offer a full bar; just wine and beer. The chardonnay that we ordered wasn't chilled so they kept us waiting while they "flash chilled" it. The menu is a bit limited. You should be able to get good hailbut fish and chips in... More

Couldn't believe a museum cafe --visited as a break during an extensive museum visit--was a place I'd CHOOSE for a dinner out, were it open later, but it is! Flights of beers, extensive wine list, best-ever broccoli cheddar soup, and spinach artichoke dip to die for. Too bad Anchorage is so far from home...
