Although I have eaten here and the food is always good, this last visit was just for drinks and appetizers. This place is at the top of the Captain Cook hotel and has nearly 360 degree views. If you want to see a dynamite sunset, book a spot knowing in advance when that will be. They... read more

Probably one of the premier restaurants in Anchorage. Located on the top floor of the Captain Cook hotel, it offers views of the Inlet and the City. A popular restaurant, so reservations are suggested well in advance. Service was excellent and attentive.all of our entrees were superb. The salmon was excellent as well as their filet. Wine selection was very... More

This is my favorite spot in Anchorage for a drink. I stay at the Hotel Captain Cook about every 3 or so months and whether it is the middle of winter or middle of summer, nothing beats capping off the day with a drink at the Crow's Nest bar. The food is wonderful if you are on an expense account... More

This restaurant was a sight to be withheld. The layout made since, and atmosphere only raised my expectations of the dishes to come. We started off with salads, the lettuce was old and lacked body, no one payed attention as of how it had been plated. The outer rim of the plate was not clear of the dish that should... More

Great place to have a drink and enjoy a terrific view of Cooks Inlet on one side and the Chugach mountains on the other. Up 20 floors at the Captain Cooks hotel.

The Charcuterie appetizer is awesome, especially with a nice Cab. The unctuousness of the fat layers in the mouth combined with the sharp finish of the wine gave me a vibrant combination of flavors that was like nothing I have enjoyed before. I followed up with the Duck Breast that was prepared just like I would have done, (although better... More

This restaurant is located at the top of one of the towers at the Hotel Captain Cook. The views of Anchorage and surrounding areas are spectacular. The food is excellent as is the service. Plan on spending around $50/person or more, particularly if you have cocktails.
