    We had a great dinner, the lamb rack was excellent, cooked as I like (rare) and my wife enjoyed the Alaska King Salmon. Beautiful view on the mountains from the restaurant. Only the bread could be better, but as we are French, we are very demanding for the bread. We would definitely recommend Crow's Nest!

    Caesar salad was classic and excellent. They accommodated excluding the kale. King Crab legs were expensive and you don't even get a vegetable included. However, they were excellent and totally prepared for easy eating. Bananas Foster was outstanding even though it was a struggle to get it for one person. The bread was awful. Especially after the outstanding bread at Simon & Seaforts. I had a struggle to get plain ordinary butter. Biggest issue is the wine list is very outdated. Also Sommelier did not follow through. Not impressed. I had asked to speak with the restaurant manager to discuss a future reservation. That also was a frustrating process. Because of the food they are a solid 4 star. Otherwise would be 3. Definitely not 5 stars. Also their menu on Opentable, which is their main site for dining reservations, is not accurate. Restaurant team blamed "third party sites". But who's responsible for this when the business chooses to use Opentable???? Frustrating. I had been looking forward to scallops for several days. Nope.

    Love the food an ambiance of the restaurant. Everything tasted lovey and the drinks were delicious. Our service was great, I only gave it a 4 because last year it was a bit better but there was nothing wrong with it. Just a different waiter. He was nice and helpful.

    Approachable Fine Dining in downtown Anchorage What a delightful evening from the moment we got off of the elevator. Professionally greeted and seated so that we were both facing the spectacular view. Our waiter was very professional and knew the menu. We ordered the oysters - large, plump, semi-briny oysters super fresh followed by the fresh halibut and fresh king salmon and we’ve never had such perfectly cooked fish - wow! The Chef’s compositions, presentations, flavors and cooking skills are worth a special trip to dine here! The Sommelier was so approachable, knowledgeable and engaging- able to quickly ascertain our preferences and recommended a wine that paired perfectly with our entrees. She’s a true professional who represented the restaurant and her profession extremely well! It would so easy to be drawn into the many tourist oriented restaurants in town, but we’d highly recommend you ride up to the Crow’s Nest and dine like the locals

    6 of us celebrated 2 birthdays at a great table with a view of the mountains, busy but quiet enough for us all to hear each other. Ryan was our server and tended us well. We enjoyed gourmet courses accompanied by the chef's in-house breads, "taster" appetizers, and post-dessert chocolates. Two shared the bananas foster dessert with great table side flaming drama. Wines well chosen, cocktails original and refreshing. This was extra special also after two years of health restrictions. We highly recommend the Crow's Nest for a special and elegant occasion.

    Fabulous… I had my mom and grandma in from Indiana visiting. David, our server was amazing, attentive and so kind. Our food was beyond good…. It was the best we have had in a long time. One thing I had a question for was a decanter for a cognac bottle I saw at the bar. I am still hoping to purchase or attain in somehow. Overall, an amazing experience.
