I come here once in a while with my girlfriends, we LOVE sitting in the lounge, ordering apps and catching up over cocktails. The views are always gorgeous, best in the city hands down. Consistently great service, tonight was no exception. Tom, the sommelier is attentive and thoughtful about wine choices. Not hard on the eyes either. The bone marrow... More

My wife and I were vacationing in Alaska in July 2014. We were told of how great the Crow's Nest was. So both of us ordered the New Zealand Elk Loin. The waitress was fine and we were told of the meat that it may look raw , but really was not due to the iron content of the meat.... More

We tried this restaurant on a recommendation of someone who ate here a few years ago when living in Anchorage. Sorry we didn't go by the reviews on here and not waste our money. Our waitress Kim was very nice. We ordered the New Zealand Elk because we eat wild game and enjoy it. Well, Kim told us the elk... More

We ate at this restaurant a week ago. There is seating with harbor or mountain views. We were seated in the the harbor view which was the only space left that night. It was nice, but I do recommend you specify the mountain view. The food was very good. We had the scallops and the salmon. But it was the... More

We had a very nice meal here! The salmon was fresh and well prepared! Sam was a super server! Even got Happy Birthday written in chocolate on my dessert plate!

Probably the best of what Anchorage has to offer with the best views in town and a good wine list and menu.

we just didn't expect a world-class restaurant in a hotel in Anchorage. What a nice surprise. Everything we ordered was excellent, including charcuterie, seafood bisque, scallops, but the high point was the local oysters with a tiny scoop for melon sherbet. Pure perfection. The only negative: there's no mustard for the charcuterie.

We went with a group and enjoyed the meal. Their wine list is quite extensive and their mixed drinks were good. Dinner was delicious - but the view is really the best part.

Went on June 21st to just have a drink and take in the view as suggested by the hotel front desk clerk who checked us in. When we got up there, the hostess was very rude and said "the LOUNGE is full. FULL" yes she repeated it with emphasis. We stated that we are staying in the hotel and we... More

Usually am not attracted to hotel restaurants, but this one is an exception. The food is excellent, the service is superb, and the view can't be beat. On the expensive side, but well worth the splurge for special occasions.
