One of the better places to eat in Fairbanks , even if it is in a hotel. Very diverse selection of wines and menu.

The salmon is good, should try it if you are fish lover. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very good, always full house and worthwhile to stop there to have a full meal before going to see the Northern light !

Always great food. The best place for oysters and Lamb. The bourbon shrimp and seared tuna are excellent

Lavelle's Bistro was recommended to us and we are glad we went. Had a few minutes wait for a table but we had a fun waitress who didn't rush us and helped us make choices. Good food, good service and good environment.

We unfortunately had time only for some appetizers before heading out. The ambiance, the food and the waitstaff all were excellent. We had heard wonderful things about this restaurant from people who live in Fairbanks, and we weren't disappointed. When we go back to Alaska we will definitely stop there for a full meal.

Great menu and a good atmosphere, but have been hit or miss on the food. The vast majority of the time the food has been outstanding, but sometimes they just miss the mark. Still one of the best meals in Fairbanks. I'll keep going back.

This is a lovely restaurant in the only hotel in town worth staying!!! This is a restaurant frequented by locals as well. They have an incredible scotch and bourbon selection not to mention other liquor. The food is very good and the service is prompt. It is a relaxing décor.

We were staying in the Marriott so decided it was an easy option for our first night which was a Saturday. The only place they could put us was the bar, but that was fine. The menu has some pricey options, but we managed to find something on it more to our budget and were very happy with our choices.

We didn't but we waited out a seat at the bar. Glad we did. Started with a cup of soup and dang was it good. Friend had a really yummy salad. Then the entrees, they know what they are doing. The pork chop was tasty and my chicken with mushrooms was perfect. Staff was fun, and menu had a lot... More
