Love, love, love the food! Some of the best food I've ever had. There is also a lot of variety on the menu. You can't go wrong. Oh, and really good pastries and treats as well. Their eclairs are to die for!

we had scallops on potato medallions and crab stuffed pasta envelopes, wonderful salads all with fresh local produce and fabulous rolls with lemon-dill butter.

I can't believe it took me this long to finally stop at this restaurant. Everything we had was delicious. I'm not a fan of octopus, but my dad ordered it and I couldn't resist to take a bite. It was SO good. All of our entrees, appetizers and desserts were wonderful. Any restaurant we went to after just couldn't compare.... More

Our night began with the house made "cocktails" which were loaded full of syrup and tooth achingly sweet. After two of them we gave up and stuck with wine. Sadly, it didn't stop there. The various appetizers were all completely over seasoned and/or drenched in dressing. The soup was quite nice and the presentation of the dishes were beautiful but... More

This restaurant could be the best in Alaska. It is certainly better than any restaurant in Fairbanks. I had the golden masa soup - incredible flavor. light, but rich. My dinner companion had oysters which were beautiful plump little things, and spot shrimp with home made pasta. My little crisp pork-belly was served with a watercress and apple salad in... More

We've eaten here many times over the years when we go to the Park. My halibut was over cooked. The scallops used to be huge, but now they're just regular sized. The atmosphere continues to be somewhat casual. Lots of hard surfaces translates to a noisy experience. We actually prefer dining now at the Denali Grande or the Princess Hotel.

The staff did an outstanding job with our group of 13, we obviously had a reservation. The food was delicious and the presentation was very attractive. Meals were served at the same time and were hot. A festive place for a fun evening. Desserts were delicious, too!

Someone local recommended this place as the best place to go in summer in Denali, and we weren't disappointed. We had a flatbread pizza for appetizer, I had main course of duck and my wife had miso baked cod. Each were great. Service and atmosphere were equally good. Highly recommend it.

We had our 2nd dinner with two other couples and the meal was just as fabulous as the first time. The food shows the dedicated creativity of a chef who is passionate about her food. She sources locally and Alaskan, I think the menu changes daily. This is a restaurant for foodies and unexpected considering the location. A comparable food... More
