Incredible meal! A seat by the fireplace, a beautiful bottle of wine, and incredible food. In one of the oldest homes in Anchorage, the menu changes nightly, and features fresh local seafood. We enjoyed table-side Caesar salad, lobster bisque, seared Kodiak scallops with housemade pasta,...pistachio-crusted Alaska King Salmon, cheesecake, and amazing, friendly service.More

Ate here twice during our 6 day stay in Anchorage. Excellent food, wonderful service, professional staff. Fine dining without being pretentious. Their Caesar salad is the real thing. When in Anchorage, dine here and treat yourself to an exceptional culinary experience.. You won't be disappointed.

Very glad I read up and made reservations for our one night in Anchorage. We had a lovely table by the window which added a lot to our experience. We enjoyed looking through the extensive wine list and ordered a bottle of champagne which was...brought to our table with amazing alacrity. Service is very efficient almost to a fault. The starters came out quickly. The foie gras was delicious and my spouse enjoyed the oysters. We had the sockeye special and the halibut for our mains. The portions are very generous and tasted good. We shared a berry crisp for dessert which was also good though the "crisp" part was quite dry, almost sandy. Though the pace with which our courses arrived was quick, we were not rushed to finish our bottle of champagne or to pay the check.More

An amazing restaurant in downtown Anchorage! With only 14 tables situated in an historic house you must have a reservation. We were fortunate to get an 8:45 reservation for our only night in Anchorage. Co-owner Van Hale met us at the door and showed us...to our table. We ordered a couple glasses of wine from their extensive list, Van’s famous Caesar Salad, Macadamia Crusted Halibut for my husband, and Filet Mignon for me. Shortly after ordering, Van Hale placed a cart beside our table and proceeded to make our Caesar Salad. I balked a bit at the anchovies but chef assured me I wouldn’t taste them in the dressing. He was, of course, correct. He also presented two glasses of a white wine which he insisted would bring out the flavors in the salad - bite of salad, sip of wine. Again, spot on. When I inquired about the type of wine he replied Gewurztraminer which happens to be one of our favorites. The entrees were perfectly prepared and wonderfully flavorful. My husband said his halibut was the best he had tasted. My steak was awesome! For dessert we split a Crème Brûlée and capped it off with 2 glasses of Graham’s 40 year port. Wow! You have to go here!!More

Excellent experience for a table of four. 3 of 4 diners had king salmon with tarragon and considered it to be the best salmon dinner ever. Macadamia crusted halibut also good. Minor quibble, which may be major for some: Wine by the glass was wrong...then and remains wrong on restaurant website & Open Table menu a month later; Marx Bros does not have a 2014 Fetzer Gewürztraminer and I suspect vintage on many other wines are wrong. 2nd quibble: I was looking forward to the Berry Crisp dessert but was told they were out of birch syrup so no crisp was made. These quibbles don’t prevent a 5 star rating across the boardMore

Our son and daughter in law took us here for a special dinner one night during our visit. I am not a 'foodie' and I am fairly picky about what I eat so lots of the gourmet touches were lost on me and I had...a hard time picking anything from the menu as I have lots of food dislikes but the rest of my group was delighted with their selections as were the tables near us. It was fun watching the tableside ceaser salad being made and meeting one of the owners. And I have to admit the service was impeccable.More

I took my girlfriend to Marks Brothers cafe for her birthday because my first choice was closed. She ordered a bottle of wine from a local producer the Bell's winery providing a soft background to a great Caesar Salad prepared table side. I ordered the...scallops a new addition to the menu. My girlfriend ordered the smoked duck. The Caesar was delicious with a EVO that was very creamy. Next came my scallops with noodles and roasted cauliflower florets. The scallops were perfectly done but the noodles were inedible with to much cayenne the raised a welt on my tongue. The Duck breast was perfectly prepared with crispy skin and five Chinese spice flavors the stir fried noodles were a real treat. The staff were great and the cost was reasonable, I just wish they had taken the hint that my noodles were inedible when I said they wer to spicy.More

Tried 3 times to book by phone for 5 people 10 days in advance, left messages in answering machine, got no reply, left one email. In the meantime, booked a table for 4 through Opentable (yes, it was a very special occasion, and the place...had been recommended to me), and left an email explaining that we would be 4 adults and one kid. Finally, got an email 4 days later: there was room for 4 people but not 4 people with a 9-year old kid, although when looking at Opentable two days earlier, there was at least 2 tables of 4 left. Maybe there is an unsaid policy of no kids?… in many other places, even the most fancy ones, the manager would have tried to accommodate the guests. So disappointing…More

I think so. We just parked on the street outside the cafe and I'm pretty sure we didn't pay. But regardless it was very easy.
