    If I could give six stars, I would because it was that good. The food, service, presentation and experience was at a different level. If you want a special dinner in Alaska, this is the place.

    What a fantastic dining experience we had at Marx Bros Cafe! The service, the ambiance, the food….all wonderful. Don’t miss the Caesar salad for 2, my husbands steak was prepared exactly to his liking, as was the fish special I ordered. They have a wonderfully extensive wine menu. You won’t find a better dining experience anywhere in Anchorage!

    Unfortunately Marx Brothers did not have scallops or shrimp the night we were there so I ordered 2 appetizers. I can say the halibut cheeks in black bean sauce were excellent. The neopolitan mousse was just okay— super mild. Husband had the venison which was not gamey at all and quite tasty. The little historic house is cute but decorated really old school with old artwork, carpet, etc. and it’s a small space so tables are VERY close together. Prices are high because it wants to be known as fine dining and mostly succeeds.

    Food is amazing. But they couldn’t do the Cesar salad, the were out of many items and service was very slow. Also the check had errors. But that said it is one of my favorite places because the food is exceptional and worth the wait.

    Upscale yet approachable, top-tier established dining destination with a loyal local following. A wonderful alternative to the myriad of tourist oriented restaurants downtown. Special app for the evening was Halibut Cheeks prepared to perfection with a delightful Asian inspired seaweed salad and salmon roe. Jeffrey’s table side Caesar Salad is a must order, classic preparation, large portions - good value for the price. My wife had the Loin of Venison with fresh morels in a currant demiglace, smashed fingerling potatoes, fennel- Brussels sprout and candied bacon confit - and it was cooked to perfection and unbelievably delicious! I ordered the fresh caught white king salmon and received a generous portion that was also a treat but a little over cooked and personally I thought the quinoa and cauliflower sides were less than inspired. This is a wonderful restaurant with attractive dining rooms, a service team that worked seamlessly and a kitchen that knows what it’s doing. We’d definitely go back and highly recommend that you give them a try!

    We go to Marx Brothers for special occasions and it never disappoints. The service is amazing and the table side salad is one of the best....house favorite! Marx Brothers goes out of their way to make a guest's night feel special. The main dish was a little bland this year but the fresh vegetables are delicious! Thank you for a great evening!

    Was not the incredible dining experience we were hoping for. Maybe because of all the hype, the food was just okay and the prices were pretty high. Had to leave a credit card to keep our reservation because of a mix up with open table reservation. Overall a lot of trouble and didn’t feel like it was worth it.

    The meals were absolutely perfect. We had the steak dish and the halibut. The steak was one of the best I have ever had. It was extremely tender, tasty, and cooked to perfection. The halibut was excellent. We had the table made Caesar salad which is always great. We would recommend to anyone traveling to Anchorage or for locals like us.

    Marx Brothers is easily the best restaurant in Anchorage. Everything on the menu tends to be excellent. Van's famous Caesar salad is, of course, and essential element of dining at Marx Brothers. The attentive, professional service is comparable to what you would encounter in the finer restaurants of Chicago or San Francisco, which makes the Marx Brothers Cafe unique in Anchorage, if not in all of Alaska.
