The food was amazing, the service was the best we'd ever had, and the view was gorgeous! I would highly recommend Seven Glaciers, especially if you are looking for a romantic place to dine for a special occasion.

    Dinner with another couple from out of state. Kind of hit or miss on the food, some was incredibly good, some just very average. Service was quite honesty, pretty poor. Twice our server forgot items we had ordered, and another server spilled gravy on my wifes coat. Their response was to bring some wet-wipes. King Crab cakes were bland. Everything else pretty good. A good wine list with surprisingly reasonable prices. Giant plates for smaller portions. You're definitely paying for the location and unique experience. We probably won't go back.

    After not having dined here in 6 yrs, decided to impress a very special someone who recently reunited after 30yrs. Experience was nothing less than expected. Started with half dozen Halibut Cove Oysters, never disappointed by Kachrnak Bay shellfish, fantastic. Followed a pre dinner martini with an '06 Renwood Vine Zinfandel from my library. The $25 cork fee was worthy, the California only varietal was mature for the occasion. Dinner selection consisted of a tasting of salad/entrees featuring mushrooms from various regions, following the 'Fungus Festival'. Servings reasonable, with the final entree 4oz filet being more like 7oz. The blueberry-raspberry custard topped dessert was delightful. Impressed she was, evening's finish, EPIC.........

    Wait staff is a little too young and inexperienced for a fine restaurant. Food was very well prepared. Portions small but adequate. Wait moderately long. Wine over-priced and unavailable to sample, then out of stock when we ordered.

    The Seven Glaciers is the high end restaurant at the Alyeska Hotel. The menu is limited but every item is wonderfully prepared and very delicious, even the desserts!!! If you're in the area or at the hotel, you must visit this restaurant, it's a unique place with a million dollar view.

    The experience of taking the tram to the top and viewing the valleys below from the table was breathtaking. This restaurant is great for people who have money and do not have kids. The restaurant is quiet and the people aren't distracted by their electronics! The food is a little expensive. 2 steaks, a potato dish, two salads, 2 coffees, 2 rootbeers, 4 desserts, crab, and a glass of cheap wine totaled to about $400. Exceptional service when you first come in. I would dress between a nice (not holy) jean and a button up shirt or a suit. For girls, a nice pair of jeans and a nice shirt or a cocktail dress and heels. Great for locals or tourists! Make sure to bring a jacket, it can get a little chilly! Have fun!

    Considering that the tram ride is included with your dinner reservation, everyone in our group considered dinner at Seven Glaciers to be a bargain. The food and service was outstanding. The "foodie" in our group was impressed; she said she'd never had better salmon. Since all five of us chose the salmon as our entree, I can't speak to any other dish, but all of us were very happy with what we were served. Orders included levels of doneness from "rare" to "medium well", and no one was disappointed. We've rarely found that to be the case. We received good advice about wine and appetizers, and we loved the changing view. Our table had windows on three sides, and the clouds and rain that evening enthralled us.

    Seven Glaciers is a wonderful restaurant; food was superb, wine fantastic, service was great but the best part of the experience was the tram ride up to the restaurant and the views from the top! A bit on the pricey side but this is one of those places where you can truly say "that you get what you pay for"!!

    We celebrated our anniversary at Seven Glaciers on a cold, rainy summer night. The evening was lovely in every respect in spite of the weather. The mountain views, both from the tram and the restaurant, were breathtaking, the service was warm yet unobtrusive, and the food was delicious and well-timed. (The bisque was particularly outstanding.) We've decided to dine here on all of our future anniversaries!

    The drive out to Alyeska, the ride up the tram, the restaurant,and the views are all noteworthy of what Alaska is all about. I would definitely do it as a special occassion as the setting and food fare are not for budget conscious visitors. It was a great time with friends from different parts of the lower 48 and we enjoyed the entire experience. Something I would do again

    My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here and what a wonderful evening we had. The tram ride up to the restaurant and then the breath-taking views were just the start to a memorable night. The staff was very accommodating, pleasant and knowledgeable. From the start with my wine and my husbands mojito to the cheese plate(loved the lavender encrusted cheese) to the main course(filet and strip steak) and ending with dessert(gluten free), words do not do the food justice---simply excellent!

    Our reservations were for the first seating, and it was a beautiful sunny evening. Unfortunately, we were seated right beneath a speaker, and the music was very loud and annoying, a type of music not appropriate for high class dining with such a view (jazz, opera). My dinner companion wears a hearing aid, so this loud noise exacerbated our ability to communicate. Fortunately, the waiters, who agreed with our assessment, turned the sound way down and also changed the type of music. That done, we ordered wine, a salad, dinner and were very pleased with all of our choices. The choices for all of the courses are creative preparations of popular main dishes (beef, fish, etc), acccompaniments, and desserts. The fish was perfectly cooked.

    Amazing views from the bar and restaurant. We went for the views but were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. We both ordered the salmon, which was served on a bed of pea purée - one of the best salmon meals I have had (and I lived in Vancouver for 10 years! ). Service was good. Would definitely return given the opportunity. I would also note that it is only about a 40 minute drive from anchorage and definitely worth the drive.

    Our first anniversary dinner was at Seven Glaciers was spectacular. Our 6th Anniversary dinner was just as wonderful. We'd had a late seating for 4 at 8:45. The table was ready, the server attentive and helpful. We were given the choice of having our dinner in courses or served all at once which was a nice option. The dinner was fabulous. Perfectly medium rare beef, exquisite scallop bisque. The men wished for larger portions but the ladies were very happy with the servings. We will visit more often!

    Our July visit to the 7 Glaciers restaurant was excellent. The food , service and a table up over the clouds viewing the mountain tops and glaciers was a special night. You can pay $576 for a bottle of wine but we found an excellent chardonnay for $36. The tab is about $100 per person having the full monty. PS ..try the rockfish....the last ride down on the tram is 11:30pm.

    We are locals and have enjoyed Seven Glaciers many times over the years. Food was good, but the customer service not so. I made my reservation by email, mentioned it was for a birthday, but this did not translate to any special greeting on arrival or décor at the table. Each course arrived painfully slowly - bread came well after appeteizer were already served; sparkling wine was whisked away to chill (rather than at our table) and we had to wait for each refill. Birthday girl was finally aknowledged after I made a comment but desert had already been ordered. But of course, nothing can beat the view and the ambience. Cusotmer service is what makesa a good restaurant great - and it was not great last Sunday!

    Our experience began with a complimentary tram ride up to the mountaintop restaurant. We enjoyed the chef's taster 5 course meal and opted for the wine pairings provided. Everything was amazing with each course providing something new and different from poached halibut to braised duck breast to steak filet. The chef crafted a perfect evening of delights.

We were only able to purchase appetizers and the portions were perfect. The dessert was phenomenal! Our waiter was friendly, respectful, and efficient. The embiance was romantic and the view was spectacular! I would recommend this to anyone looking to treat themselves to a fine dining experience on a budget.

    The view was great. The table by the tram cables was a little annoying. We couldn't get in our first night stay as they were booked. I wish the concierge would have told us to make reservations before we arrived. The chef's 5 course recommendation wasn't worth the $79. The filet had grizzle. We never got any bread to start as other tables did. The other two dinners were fine.
