Great time, amazing food!This is the perfect restaurant to celebrate a special occasion. The food is unbelievable-the wagyu beef filet was the highlight of our meal, but the king crab entre, green salad, scallop bisque and goat cheese cheesecake were all fantastic as well. Lots of creativity on the menu and a great wine list. Our server Taylor was very enthusiastic, attentive and knowledgable. The restaurant is very expensive but worth it for a special occasion or visit!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGood except for hostessI had a good experience at Seven Glaciers, except that the hostess was very rude. We arrived five minutes prior to our reservations and she bluntly asked us to wait in the lounge for until our reservation. The table we were eventually seated in was empty that whole time and there was no obvious reason for us to wait to be seated. That started the whole visit on the wrong note. The server was very personable and did a good job. The food was fantastic. The view was perfect. Too bad the hostess started it all off on the wrong note.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMa friend say we MUST get aa friend say we MUST get a reservation at Seven Glaciers while we were in Girdwood. As result, out expectations were very high but we were not disappointed.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMDining in the heavensThe room is quiet and relaxing. The server appears often but not so much that you feel intruded upon and the table is kept free of crumbs at all times. I like how we were able to try several dishes. The view of the mountains and glaciers are truly unbelievable.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMfirst time visit..EXCELLENT!My husband and I enjoyed the food very much. Theflavors were great from appetizers through desserts. We brought our family along with our youngest being 6 years old (of course we had to keep him occupied with our phones) we also requested ahead of time for a corner table and with a view. We got our request. Service was friendly and our waiter was just amazing! I think the portions of the food were just right. The atmosphere really makes it more of a romantic place versus family-friendly. I would suggest leaving kids behind if its your first time..so you can enjoy it all :)6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial PlacesThe 7 Glaciers Restaurant is a truly amazing place. I'm not sure what was the most remarkable; the food, the atmosphere, or the scenic views.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome! coming from a world dinerEverything ordered was delectable . The waygu beef was the best steak we ever had. The scallop , salmon mousse was fantastic. Ordered it both nights ( went the two nights we were in town , it was that good). Nichole ,our waitress was wonderful.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWent to restaurant as a treatWent to restaurant as a treat for a visiting relative. Beautiful scenery, fantastic staff. Have recommended it to others as a special outing.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMSplendor in the CloudsSeven Glaciers was a first rate experience from beginning to end. Sitting atop Mt Alyeska, the location cannot be duplicated. Drinks, service and food were all first rate. The Goat cheese cheescake was the perfect ending to a spectacular meal!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect place to celebrateMy husband and I recently celebrated our 20th anniversary at the Seven Glaciers restaurant, and everything was just perfect. It's not the place to go for a quick meal (we were astonished to discover we'd been there 2 hours when we left), but the service was wonderful. We never felt either rushed or bored waiting for our food as they kept coming to check on us and bringing us samples from the chef. The view was just beautiful on the night we were there, although we did notice when we went up in the tram the next day that the mountains were covered in fog, so I'm sure the view is weather-dependent. The food was simply outstanding. Everything was very attractive and expertly prepared. A perfect place to celebrate a special occasion.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMImpressedWe came for the view, and walked away impressed by the food. At the Space Needle or CN tower you pay for the view and the food quality suffers a bit. We expected the same was possible at Seven Glaciers, but instead the food was fantastic (as was the view!). All four of us did the tasting menu and had one drink a-piece (bill was $130pp after tax/tip). Each dish was well designed -- very tasty -- and artfully presented. For a memorable special occasion, come here.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the Price!The view from the restaurant is fantastic and unbelievably beautiful, and the restaurant is directly adjacent to the hotel were we were staying. You can see the bay and mountains from the floor to ceiling windows.The wine list was excellent and they even had a few wines from the Tuscany region winery my wife and I visited recently. The wines were from all wine regions in the world, and varied in price from $35 to a $2,700 Screaming Eagle. Food was excellent and distinctly prepared. Although pricey, it is definitely worth it for a special occasion in my opinion, and the $20 per person tram ride to the restaurant is included in advanced reservations.
Minor negative items: No one on staff really knew the wine list details; bar service lacking5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce Again- Did Not DisappointI've had a variety of meals here- brunch, casual lunch, dinner, drinks, etc. The view, service, and food never disappoints. Most recently I ordered the Copper River king salmon and it was prepared to perfection. Make it a point to treat yourself at Seven Glaciers!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious and amazing viewOur food was terrific. The view was amazing! The staff was great.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMBreathing rarified air...The trip was great, the service and food superb. The only detractor was the excruciating noise levels from the jackhammering at the Tram exit / entrance up on top. ( The reason for the less than perfect ambience ). Food fit for a king at the top of the world...5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful way to celebrate anythingThe ride up the tram is an amazing (and romantic) beginning to your evening. The mountain views are incredible any time of year and it moves slowly enough for you to really enjoy the scenery (the group before us saw a baby bear)! You can view the restaurant's awards on the wall and peek through the glass to see their vast wine collection. We were quickly seated in a far room surrounded by windows and yet another gorgeous view. We ordered delicious mixed drinks made from house infused liquor. Our oysters came about 30 minutes later, fresh. We ordered the Chef's 5 course meal. They were all amazing, however, we only received 2 courses per hour. Dessert was a substitute for what we were told and wasn't good. I would definitely try again!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMReturn dinnerWhat a great experience. Good was excellent and service was perfect.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful treat!Seven Glaciers is an elegant restaurant on top a mountain. Go when the days are long so you can see the spectacular scenery. On the tram we received a "tour" explaining different views as we rode up to it. We watched the sun set while we ate dinner. The food is very good, very creative. I had the Wagyu filet and my husband had the Wagyu New York steak. Very tender and flavorful. I also had a bisque, I believe it was salmon? It had a scallop in the center topped with roe. Oh my! Wonderful! For dessert I had goat cheesecake with caramelized onions with gelato and fruit. Hard to imagine what that could taste like. It was so good. Everything was delicious. You know the meal was good when you are still thinking about it 4 days later!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe found this restaurant excellent.We found this restaurant excellent. the food was superb. the wine pairing was great, except for not having a wine for dessert included.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMMaybe the best place I'veMaybe the best place I've ever been. Everything was fantastic.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful evening out. GreatWonderful evening out. Great food, waiter knew just the right amount of attention (good service but not overbearing). And as always - a great setting.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall we had a very niceOverall we had a very nice evening. Although I feel that David needs some more training with his service skills. We waited over 10 minutes for him to appear with just water, wine took quite awhile as well as bread service. He was not attentive, when asked for more break never received it, asked a busser and he brought it right away. Again, David was nice enough, he said it was a team of service, well it wasn't no one checked back with any course to see how we were etc. Of course we will be back we enjoy the trip but service was lacking this time.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBest of the best! Can't beatBest of the best! Can't beat the food, service, or view.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI recently had lunch withI recently had lunch with my wife and parents at Seven Glaciers to celebrate my parents anniversary and my mother's birthday. The entire experience, from the atmosphere to the service and the phenomenal dishes, was exquisite. The meal concluded the end of a week-long vacation for my parents and they repeatedly said afterwards that the dining experience was the highlight of their Alaskan trip.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. Better than expectedGreat food. Better than expected even for a fancy restaurant. My wife loved the bittersweet coconut cake cake. Best desert she has ever had!
The ride there on the tram is incredible. Great place for a special occasion.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI would recommend this restaurantI would recommend this restaurant simply for the view. It is incredible. The food is over priced and wasn't spectacular. This wasn't really a bother or a disappointment because that is what you expect when a restaurant's selling point is more about the experience than the food. We had a really nice time and enjoyed the evening view of the mountain. The experience was worth the money even if the food wasn't. I will say, the baked Alyeska dessert was worth every penny. That menu item was excellent.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is delicious, serviceFood is delicious, service perfect, ambiance romantic. Just make sure to ask for a table with a view if you are in a big group (we were facing the entry of the tram and not the mountains unfortunately). Overall, GREAT DINING experience!! I highly recommend this restaurant!!!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAn exceptional view makesAn exceptional view makes this restaurant a must for anyone visiting Girdwood - especially those of us who don't ski and might not otherwise get to see the view from atop the mountain. The food was very good, though not the absolute best I had in Alaska. Still, it's quite a bit better than many other restaurants I've tried with a draw other than the food.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWell worth it!!!People were dressed anywhere from formal wear to jeans and t-shirts. Nice jeans and nice shirts and you are pretty much set and comfortable. The staff was attentive and pleasant. Both of us ordered the chef's menu of the evening and it was very good, even exceeding our expectations!! The view was amazing and the tram ride was well worth every minute! It is spendy even without ordering the wine pairings, but I believe well worth it. Will definitely go again!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMNo wonder it is so popular.No wonder it is so popular. What a unique experience.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Place to DineVery nice ambiance...quiet and scenic. Wine list was outstanding but notably overpriced. Food was good but not crazy good. Crab cake appetizer was so-so, salads were delicious. Rissoto was so-so. Salmon bisque was delicious. Beef entries were delicious however the veggie (brocollini) was over cooked. Ahi was excellent. Overall a nice experience.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOur Go-To place to impressWe have been to Seven Glaciers many times, and have enjoyed the experience whether it would be lunch, a romantic dinner, or with a very large group. We have never been dissappointed, and have gotten great reviews from our guests we accomplanied and introduced to your beautiful setting. Everything is always fantastic and the service and the food prep is always impecable and exciting. It's our Go-To place when we want to impress company. Great Job. !!!!!!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGood for familyThis was the second time to visit this restaurant. Same as the first time, stuff was cheerful, friendly and polite. I visited with my wife, 2years and 4years doughters, so I worried about kids makeing noise and disturbing other customers. Hoewver, they keep corner but good view table and so we enjoyed relaxed time.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe decided to make last minuteWe decided to make last minute reservations for a weekend night at the suggestion of the restaurant website--we werent disappointed! The reservation may not have been necessary (seemed to be plenty of space around 5:45) but it filled in as the evening went along. It's also nice that the reservation includes tickets up to the restaurant. The dress code says 'smart casual'...that must be Alaskan for 'no snow pants'! No need to overdress. Great ambiance, quite a wine selection, an amuse-bouche and palate cleanser from the chef add to the atmosphere. The food was fresh, well cooked, and flavorful. The portions are small, but we took advantage of that to order a few and share. The view from dining room was beautiful even through a snow storm.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service, wonderfulExcellent service, wonderful food, awesome atmosphere!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful way to spend anA wonderful way to spend an evening! We arrived about an hour prior to our reservation to enjoy a drink or two at the bar after hearing that the views of the mountain from the bar area were great. The views lived up to the expectations, and the drinks far exceeded them. We really enjoyed the new old fashioned and the winters rum punch. From there we moved into the dining area where we had a wonderful 3 course meal - the tartare, the king crab, and the sable fish were some great highlights. We also finished the evening off with the baked Alaska dessert, per our server's (Raleigh, who was great!) suggestion and were amazed by how fantastic it was. Wine pairings for our meal were perfect, as well. Excellent all around!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful space, delicious food.Fantastic views and, if possible, even better food! Lots of little surprises from the chef. Beautiful restaurant that I would HIGHLY recommend for a special night out. Definitely on the pricey side but totally worth it.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBravoThe service at 7 Glaciers is definitely 5 star. The menu selection matches the service, and it also is quite nice to have a Gluten Free menu available as my wife is gluten intolerant. My wife had fillet and I had pork both were cooked to perfection as to what was ordered - No over/under cooking. The sauces were totally enjoyable. On the side I opted for a risotto with wild mushrooms - Excellent choice. The Ridge Winery Zin was a fine vintage and after airing for 10 minutes married the flavor to the meal. We would recommend this for those special moments where you need to get away from the crowds, relax and enjoy a nice leisurely meal with a killer view.3/3/2013 12:00:00 AMHoneymoon lunchWe went for lunch durring our honeymoon and it was wonderful. although it was foggy you could see the snow falling and it was very pleasant!3/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe opted for the chef's choiceWe opted for the chef's choice for both food and drink. It was very expensive, but something we will do again. The food was superb - such variety, so many wonderful surprises. The highlight was trout served on a hot rock - very unusual presentation, absolutely scrumptious. We probably will order a modest bottle of wine next time to bring the price down - because I'd like to experience this again, and again. A great way for us to celebrate a belated Valentine's. Many thanks to the chef and staff!2/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBecoming a favorite!This was the 2nd time I had been up to 7 Glaciers. Last time I went when it was night, which was so nice because the candlelight was romantic. This time we went for lunch, the view was amazing! We had lunch & drinks, which were both very good.2/16/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantic with a James Bond feelWhat a great experience! This restraunt sits atop Mt Alyeska, you arrive by Tram service leaving from the hotel, and ride a heated elevator to the top floor of the mountain side lodge. This experience alone made the night but it was made even better by a great staff that works hard to make the dining experience special, the food is excellent, great wine list. I2/16/2013 12:00:00 AMworth the time to get thereIt was out first time eating at Seven Glaciers and we were very pleased with every aspect of our visit. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful from greeting us to offering suggestions about food offerings. We will be going back for sure!!!2/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWon't forget this Place!Tops the list for most expensive yet on a Valentines Date! Worth every penny if it is in your budget! Unique transportation to and from...thrilling to some maybe. Drop the ladies off first and than plan a good walk from the parking lot. A shuttle is available. My dress shoes got a little wet but that was all part of the adventure! You will use every bit of an hour and a half to arrive at your table if you are leaving from Anchorage.2/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!We came here during an Alaska vacation for our anniversary. We had the chefs tasting menu and wine paring- expensive but totally worth it. The food was fabulous and wines were very good. Service was very good except for one issue, they knew we were there for our anniversary and the restaurant was almost empty, however about halfway through the meal they sat a large group with a bunch of kids right next to our table when there were many other tables available for a group that size. Luckily for us the children were well behaved but it did take away from the romance of the evening.7/29/2012 12:00:00 AM
