The food was very good and so was the service but for the type of restaurant it is I thought it was overpriced. The menu was very small as well and being a picky eater myself I struggled finding something simple.

This was an all around exceptional restaurant. I are here for lunch and was very impressed. The service was exceptional and the food and atmosphere was equally so. The menu is diverse and all items looked wonderful. I had a Cubano Sandwich and my friend had port schnitzel. We loved what we had. I will definitely come here again. I... More

We enjoyed a great meal, but our waitress was a bit off putting. Everyone else was welcoming and friendly though. Try the fresh halibut, you won't be disappointed!

When we drove up we were a little surprised by what looked like an average place in a strip mall. As soon as you get inside, your opinion changes. This is a very nice restaurant with a warm and inviting ambiance. The food was very good - one of the few places we ate at that did fish right. The... More

My family has been dining at south side since we moved to Anchorage, and in my opinion it is the best restaurant in town. The wait staff is helpful and informed, the atmosphere is always great, and you absolutely can't go wrong with the food!

We ate lunch there on the way south on the Seward highway. I had a very fresh seafood salad with lightly crusted rockfish and the freshest greens. We talked to the chef and he was interested in getting the best local ingredients and the freshest fish. My wife had a spinach salad which was also excellent. Service was very good.... More

We have never seen a better bistro menu. They have just started to buy from local farms and the special on our night was an awesome bone in rib eye. The waiter was so knowledgeable that I asked him for his recommendation on the temperature of the steak. He recommended medium because it would give it enough time for the... More

Such a nice surprise near our "home" in Anchorage. Our waiter was really helpful in making our dining choices and my husband and I were thrilled with our meals . His was a perfectly prepared bone in Ribeye and mine was Bolognese. Good selections of wine. Large portions with salads left no room for dessert.

It had been sometime since we visited Southside Bistro but last night, it was better than ever. Before entering wonderful smells drifted out and my husband said, "so why haven't we been here the last few times we hit Anchorage?" We think a reservation is probably a good idea and we find the bar side to be more inviting. Our... More

We stopped in for lunch with 10 people (here on a family reunion) and were able to get two tables with no wait on a Tuesday. Food was good. I had the rockfish wrap and hoped for a better rockfish to salad ratio. The fries had some good spices on them. The waiter was a bit premature in clearing the... More
