    as we told our waitress, my seafood pasta was really good, my wife's Mushroom Ravioli was AMAZING. It was very busy but our waitress, Natalie, still took the time to check on us several times and made sure the bottle of wine we ordered was good with our food. it was just an excellent evening

    As a first timer, I was impressed. The food came out promptly and was delicious. My friend and I shared fries as an appetizer and it was served with two kinds of sauces: a spicy ketchup and banana ketchup. We were hesitant to try the banana ketchup, but it was actually quite good. It was sweet enough and had a bit of tang to it. It is an acquired taste. The spicy ketchup had enough kick that it didn't overpower the flavor. For entrees, I had the chicken pasta. It was very good, however, it was a bit salty. It was also served with a nice size of goat cheese on top, which I felt overpowered the pasta, so I removed that part. Our server Paul was friendly and prompt and was knowledgeable in the wine selections. The overall experience was great and would recommend it!

    Our reservation for 2 was meant to be for 3, they accommodated us right away by adding a chair to our booth. We ordered three courses and cocktails, our daughter ordered from a children's menu as well. All of our food was so good. We had prime rib and the duck. The bar makes fantastic cocktails (try the Donkey Dines Out) and had a decent selection of Scotch and American whiskeys. My husband ordered a Port with dessert. Wait staff was attentive. The decor and vibe was warm and very social. Great place for gathering for drinks, date night and for well behaved older kids.

    I have been a long time patron of Haute Quarter Grille from back in the Eagle River days; the food is fantastic, the wine list is amazing and the service is always exemplary. The ambiance in the downtown spot is MUCH different than the quiet and cozy ER location was, but that's all that's changed. If you're looking for a spot with great food and a bustling atmosphere then this is the place for you. They have full service in the bar area as well and even some TV's going when you just HAVE to watch the game.

    We made reservations 5days in advance and were given a terrible table. When I asked to move they did not move us. The food was uninspired. The ahi was bland, the crab cakes were a glob of mush and the kitchen covered both of our entrees in heavy sauces. We have lived in Anchorage for many years and would not return to this establishment.

    Another great experience at Haute Quarter Grill! The Duck Confit appetizer kicked off a memorable meal that built through the perfectly prepared Lamb Lollipops with delicious green beans and finished strong with a tasty shared Berry Cobbler. As usual, my wife loved her Maytag Blue Cheese Salad and raved about her Grilled Scallops. Our server was attentive and professional, but too not overbearing, giving us plenty of time to linger over dinner and enjoy each other's company. We really enjoy coming in for dinner and have been fans for years. I know that the evening has a good opportunity for success when I bring out of town business guests in for dinner - always great comments about the food and drinks.

    I recently brought a group here of 8 from out of town. Only a few had ever been to AK, & none of them had been there except for me. The responses I got after the meal were all very positive. Our server Natalie was both knowledgeable & friendly & had good recommendations for us. The ribeye was cooked to perfection, the scallops were very tasty, the king crab legs were pre-cut & not dried out, the jambalaya had the right amt of spice, and the filet mignon kabobs were excellent. The only issue that I had of somewhat concern was the restaurant policy on not allowing substitutes. One of the folks in my party is on a diet & unable to eat starches. The asparagus requested was an upcharge per comp policy. Regardless, the meal was very good.

    RobinHood
    Dined on 10/29/2014
    I went with my wife and friend for an early evening pre-concert dinner. We all had the Prix Fixee menu at $40/ Plate with a $3 Donation to Beans Cafe. We had 2 x Prime Rib which was slathered in a rather spicey sauce, which hid the meat and both were rather tough for a prime rib. Our friend had a seafood pasta which was "unexceptional". We chose a $33 bottle of Malbec which was a reasonable choice at a high price for a $11 bottle. The salads were good, though small. The beignets were rather "doughy" and not light as expected. The server nevr once returned while we were eating to enquire about our meal or to top up our wine and had to be summoned to move to dessert & check as we were time constrained by the concert start time. - Disappointed

    Haute Quarter was recommended by a new acquaintance and we are glad they did. Four of us had a fabulous meal. The wait staff was attentive, the cocktails were well made, and the meal was incredible. Then our dessert choices were a marvelous end to a wonderful evening. We plan to pass the word of a new dining gem in Anchorage to all our friends.

    Food was excellent, service was good except that our waiter was attempting to wait tables and service the bar. He spent too much time at the bar and not enough on his tables. Service was slow, especially when we notified him of our need to depart in time to make a show. We ordered desert with what we thought was enough time. We had to request the bill and leave prior to the desert being served. We paid for the desert even though we had to leave it uneaten at the table because we did not have enough time to have it taken it off the bill. Also, did not receive an itemized total of our dinner, just the credit card receipt.

    Dined on 10/18/2014
    This review covers my 2nd and 3rd trips to HQ. My first didn't deliver and my review said so. Great apps and drinks, salty steak, gooey risotto, dark and slow. I believe in second chances and anyone can have an off day. The 2nd time things were different--the room was well-lit, the service was (almost too) expedient and the food fantastic. Once again drinks and the duck spring roll appetizer set a great tone. My wife enjoyed her pasta immensely and I tried the Wagyu steak special and it was AMAZING! So tender and full of flavor… HQ definitely started the night off the right way. We came back a 3rd time and brought a friend. Once more we were seated quickly and the service was exceptional. We had to wait for nothing, refills, setting & clearing the table, ordering more drinks--the staff was consistently present without being obtrusive. My wife and I each selected the dishes we had on our first visit and this time around our expectations were well-met. The filet and pepper steak were cooked to order and had great taste--I recommend the pepper steak for sure. This time I had no trouble identifying my sides--potatoes and brussel sprouts. Mashed are always a fave so no disappointment there. But the surprise was the sprouts--I don't know how they did it, but mom never made me want to eat Brussels sprouts the way HQ does. YUM!!!! And this time the cheesy risotto was done right--fluffy, cheesy, & rich without being overwhelming. A great companion to the filet. Our friend had a salad and gnocchi, which was wonderfully rich in flavor but not too heavy. There's no chance you will go home hungry here. I regret being so negative in my first review. I recognize any restaurant can have an off night (maybe it was me). And I'm glad we returned. My expectations were high for Haute Quarter and now I can say rightfully so.

    We chose Haute Quarter Grill for our ladies' night out. We were immediately greeted by the hostess and taken to our table, which was close to the kitchen. Our waiter was knowledgeable, personable, and downright fun! We ordered calamari and gnocchi to start and we were not disappointed. The calamari was crispy and tender. The gnocchi was indescribably delicious. We then moved on to Caesar salads that were fresh and flavorful. For our entrees we ordered the blackened prime rib, the pork tenderloin, and the kabobs. The presentation of each dish was eye catching and elegant. Every single element of each entree was fantastically scrumptious! We ended our meal with creme brûlée and beignets. They were the perfect ending to our delightful feast.

    It may be that I just ordered the wrong thing. I got the pork ribs, which indicated were dry-rubbed. I didn't taste any spicing (I had them without the sauce) and they were overcooked and fairly tasteless. And the amount of French fries that came with it was wasteful. I ordered them because my first choice of an appetizer halibut chunks and a side of fries cost more than the entrée did. The appetizers seem to be a mixture of appetizers and small plates. Some of the pricing certainly seems inappropriate for an appetizer. Since I see a small plates selection as a very good thing in a restaurant, I would like to see more restaurants offering smaller and lighter portions for dinner and lunch.

    There were eight of us. We each ordered something different and tried everything. We all liked the individual dishes. My favorites were the Gnocchi(it was fresh made - not frozen), Chicken Pasta and the Kabobs. Others ordered the French Onion Soup and loved it. The Banana Foster was pretty good too. The wine list is great as well. I truly recommend this restaurant for any meal. The service is fabulous, the food is great, and the atmosphere is fun. Go and enjoy yourself!
