Just now paying the bill for late lunch. The onion soup was fabulous. Very light and creamy. The chicken parm sandwich was tasks. Chicken was not overcooked which is often the case with chicken breast. The fries were cooked perfectly. The only reason I didnt give it five stars is that we waited a while to be noticed at the...

First, this restaurant does not take reservations :( The front desk told us that we did have a reservation for our party of 8 but upon arrival we find out that they don't do reservation and they offered us a seat at the high-top table in the bar area. No real problem with that except for the miscommunication (read, bad... More

We just stopped buy for some drinks, the service was impeccable and the martini & wine were excellent. It's a nice cozy lounge and the views are unbeatable. Can't wait to get up to the top by the tram and have dinner up there.

We generally eat at the Aurora Lounge once during each of our stays at Alyeska. While the food has always been solid, the service has seemed to be overall a bit slow. Overall, you can't really go wrong eating lunch here, or enjoying some drinks later in the evening.

Both meals were good. Nice atmosphere. Good view of the tram and ski hill. Soups were good and so was the pizza.

Great service from Devon, great drinks. The blueberry basil drink was not as great as I had hoped, but the fireweed tea was just what I needed to satisfy my fruity-drink craving.

We ordered the chicken club and crab dip. The chicken club was pretty good, the crab dip was very mediocre. I would try the pizza next time it looked really good! Kids loved the chicken strips off the kids menu but did not care for the spaghetti.
