Great Dessert

We stopped here for deserts. The deserts were great as was the Caffe Mocha. The server seemed to forget about us after bringing our food and drinks. The Lavender Cosmo was not good (we've had it before and it was awesome). When the server finally came back all he said was "yeah, we have a new... read more

Great food - ask for window seat to really see view which we missed. Service was a little slow. Very popular with locals, too.

I have eaten here many times for both lunch and supper. It is my favorite restaurant in Anchorage. If they are on the menu when you go, get the Halibut Cheeks, you can thank me later!

My server was Matt, and he was simply amazing! I tried the halibut and the king crab and fell in love! I am so thankful that I was recommended to this place because since then, I've been recommending it to all my crew!! (I am a flight attendant). The freshest seafood I've ever had, gorgeous draw dropping views of the... More

You can't beat the sea food in this particular restaurant. This is where the locals go to get a good piece of fish. Treat yourself to some great food and good service!

Was lucky to find a table on a busy weekend while in Anchorage. At the recommendation given to me, tried this place. Was very crowded but lucked up in getting a table by the window. Got to see the most amazing sunset along with the best king crab legs I've had. Somewhat pricey but well worth the visit. Upscale restaurant... More

The food was good, but not sure if it was up to our expectation for the price. The booth we sat in was a bit uncomfortable (seats seemed higher than most). If you are looking for good food in a nice atmosphere, this is the right place.

Simon & Seafort's is a great traditional restaurant. The food is consistently excellent, and the service is wonderful. The sunset views across the water are stunning ... unless another table doesn't like sun in their eyes and requests the blinds to be closed. It's well known among locals and tourists and typically crowded with a bit of a wait. The... More

One of my favorite restaurants. Great food, beautiful views, a bit more formal than many other places in town, and that makes it a nice evening. I look forward to eating there a few times every time I come to Anchorage.
