The host staff was a bit snobby, but our waitress was great. We sat outside so we could get a table. We shared a flatbread which was delicious. My meal was the halibut and chips. The halibut was delicious and the best I've had in a long time. The batter was just a bit too peppery, but had a sweetness... More

Dinner was on our minds and a good meal was enjoyed by the entire family including my Grand Daughter of 16 months. Lot's of local brew to sample as well.

We had a salad and it was great. The halibut with apples and sauce would have been great if they had not over cooked This got great reviews but I thought our experience was so so

At first the staff was beyond pretentious, inattentive, and annoying. The meal was actually quite tasty. After the meal the staff seemed to warm up a little. The whole vibe of the place is unnecessarily pretentious and over rated. Stop there if you have to or if you're way better than everyone else and you know it......

We ate here at the beginning of our cruise tour, so I can't compare it to other Fairbanks restaurants. It was recommended by several people as the best in town. There was nothing special about the menu or ambiance. Service was excellent. I can't really rate the value because I'm not familiar with this market. Would I recommend it? -No.

We stayed at the Springhill Suites and wanted a convenient restaurant. Lavelle's is attached to the hotel, but not part of it. The food and service were excellent. We enjoyed cocktails, and a first-class dinner - more than we expected in the "wilds" of Fairbanks.

The house salad with house dressing is one of the best I have ever had. French onions soup is also outstanding.

We were tired after a long day at Denali and the drive to Fairbanks. We just wanted to have a quick bite to eat so we decided to eat at our hotel restaurant. We were fortunate enough to have it be Lavalle's. We had a thoroughly wonderful time. The food was delicious and the service top notch. Larry and Jason... More

We were seated promptly. Our server Tammy was very good. Didn’t write anything down and the entire order was correct. We had the Potato Crusted Salmon (very good), Meatloaf (surprisingly good), and Grilled Flat Iron (very good). All three of us had soup, but I can’t remember the name. All of them were very good. We didn’t have any dessert,... More
