Locals Love It!

In a small strip mall is a restaurant that the locals love. We celebrated my brother's birthday with a good meal and very good wine. The mussels were good but smaller than what I have had before. The garlic soup was also good. I really liked the veal medallions but we thought the cheese burger... read more

We heard a lot of great things about Southside Bistro. Our experience was fairly average, with a big price tag. The service was exceptional, and dessert was wonderful. Nice decor and atmosphere. However, my salad and main course failed miserably. The salad was brown and had spoiled. I had duck for the main course; it was tough and overcooked (I... More

Beautiful presentation and some of the best food in Anchorage. The wine list is rotated and lovely. The decor and atmosphere is the perfect spot for a cozy night out with your sweetie. My only complaint is the staff is very snooty. I've been here a few times and each time the service has been lack luster. I'm not just... More

Service is good and fairly fast on busy nights (Friday). Menu covers all the bases and never have been disappointed overall. Sometimes things aren't "just right" but . . . where are they ever perfect. Will be there again!

The lunch I was served had mixed baby lettuce that was rotting (like you find at the bottom of your plastic container of grocery store lettuce that you left in the refrigerator too long.) The french fries were shining with excess oil that I dabbed off with a napkin. The bun was dry, and shriveled around the edge (old, like... More

Southside is a favorite; nice mix of bar, bistro and fine dining. We usually reserve Southside for date night, but brought our 10 and 16 year old kids this time. They were able to find items on the menu they liked and it was a wonderful experience for all. I appreciate that the waiter was not rushed and spoke to... More

We have been going to Southside BIstro for years. Whether it is a fancy shmancy meal, or appetizers and a drink, this is the place to be. The hostesses are charming and accommodating, and the wait staff is second to none. The food is consistently delicious and the presentation matches the flavors. We especially like the Bistro side near the... More

Tucked into a neighborhood mall 7-8 miles from downtown, this is clearly a local's favorite and we now understand why. Quite spacious inside with lots of seating, still plan on waiting for a table. The eggplant appetizer was delicious and the scallop appetizer even better. The veal piccata entree was delicious, although the portions was medium sized. Their tomato-crab soup... More
