Great place for lunch

Needing a nice but not overly priced place for lunch, I was very pleased with Southside Bistro. The food was fresh, ample serving sizes, attentive service all at a fair price.

My husband and I cook home a lot and make super dishes that rival any high profile dining establishment. Maybe that is the problem. But, once in a while, we choose a local restaurant to check it out to see what they can offer. My appetizer of roasted eggplant was very very salty topped with so many unnecessary red peppers...

We had a graduation celebration. The food was great, nice servings and good portions. Desserts were yummy. The maximum for a large party is 14, so we had to 'disinvite'... to make our party work. Our daughter's dessert had a congratulations message in chocolate. Friendly service, that checked us not too often, but enough. SSBistro is one of our friend's... More

Love this place -- really good food, nice atmosphere, and very friendly staff. Nice salads, grilled selections, pasta dishes, and other favorites. Good wines, too.

We where given a gift certificate by friends for my birthday. Now for what I had read on line about the SS Bistro I was all 'twitterpated' / excited about going. Made a reservation, went to the restaurant and were seated. Our waitstaff was friendly and KINDA knowledgeable about the menu, but no help whatsoever on choosing wines. I don't... More

I often say that service in Alaska is a very mixed bag, and depending on one's expectations, this fact may be infuriating or charming or anything in between.... The food and wine were terrific. The menu's available choices were terrific. The waitperson was terrific, which was a pleasant surprise. But...the young man who brought water and and a basket of... More

We've come to consider this place our regular spot. The service is always attentive, quick and friendly. The decor and atmosphere is slightly above casual, but comfortable. The pasta I had was cooked perfectly... still with a bit of tooth to it, and sauced reasonably. I've never had a bad experience here in about 5 separate visits.

John, the Bartender, always makes you feel your appreciated. Excellent wine list for Anchorage with many verticals. Predominantly domestic wines - over 400 wines. Food is very consistent. Recommend the Mediterranean Eggplant, Southwest black bean chicken pizza, and the Rack of Lamb.

I cannot say enough about Southside Bistro. Their management, wait staff, and meals are absolutely the best one can expect. Jens and his staff are to be applauded for their efforts.
