    We made a reservation online and in the "special request" box mentioned that it was our anniversary. Our table was strewn with fresh rose petals--a very nice touch. At the end of our meal, we were offered two dessert choices for free. We chose to eat a different dessert, but the waiter offered to put one of the free desserts in a box for us to take home, which was very nice. The food was excellent, the waiter was appropriately attentive, and there was no obnoxious music or other distractions. Unfortunately, the cost of the meal does mean that this is a special-occasion-only restaurant for us (there are few entrees in the $20 range and none below that), but it was a great experience.

    Overall, we had a decent time. The food was good and our server was nice, but it was my birthday and all I got was a few pieces on confetti on the table. I left let down because anywhere else you would get a small dessert and candle or something to that affect. Maybe they could start doing this. It'd be a nice touch.

    A group of us went here to celebrate my wife's birthday an was no disappointed. We had reservations and were quickly seated a window table with a nice view. The server was very personable and providing us with quick and courteous service. The food was excellent, especially the prime rib which several of us ordered and was prepared perfectly. Yes it is a little pricey but still a great location for special occasions.

    I have eaten at this restaurant many times and have previously enjoyed it. Not this time. The salad was just a bunch of bitter lettuce, an old time dinner salad would have been much better. I had the crab stuffed halibut which I've had before and enjoyed. Not this time. The halibut was tiny and there was not a scrap of crab.

    We've been in anchorage for 5 years and just visited this restaurant for the first time. Everyone raved about it so we thought it was time to try it out. The food was ok, at best. My burger was grossly overcooked when I asked for medium. The prices were ridiculous for the portion sizes. I just don't get the hype. There are plenty of other nice restaurants in town I would pick over going back here.

    Consistently good. One of best places to eat in Anchorage. I can't say that I have ever been disappointed here but I have elsewhere. I was not wild about the bread pudding desert but the macadamia nut and crab filled halibut was a fine meal. Very good chardonnay as well. It is hard to beat Simon and S.

    Placed our order rather quickly, and then waited over an hour for our dinners to arrive. This was an unusual experience at this restaurant. It's never happened before, but this time they really dropped the ball. I can only think that something went wrong (lost order?) - but no apologies. We would have ordered desert, but were too afraid of how long it might take... I would usually give this restaurant a very high rating, but that night, it was just mediocre.

    Dined on 10/14/2014
    We just had the most wonderful dinner at Simon's. We caught a stunning sunset across the inlet - all pinks and oranges. Just lovely! My companion had the 1/2 and 1/2 halibut cheecks and crab stuffed macadamia halibut. She thought it was delicious. I went with my perennial favorite, the chicken dijon. One of the beauties of Simon's is that for the last 25 years, it's kept some of the most popular recipes as they always have been so you always know you're not wasting your money. I highly recommend the teriyaki tenderloins appetizer but beware - if you can't eat hot items, avoid the pineapples. For dessert, I had the creme brulee from the only restaurant in Anchorage that actually knows how to make it. Thanks for a lovely dinner!

    Visited on a Saturday evening, which is always a busy night. However, the noise level was so overwhelmingly loud that no one at our table could make themselves heard across the table without almost shouting. And, my husband's Seafood Fettucini Alfredo had pasta that was undercooked, almost non-existent seafood in it, and a pittance of sauce - definitely not enough to cover all the noodles adequately. Denise, our server was outstanding in the service department - very pleasant, efficient, and always there when we needed something. We keep trying to go back to Simon & Seafort's in the hope that things get better, but we continue to be disappointed by the food and ambiance problems each time we go. This was not an outstanding night out.

    We are in Alaska 42 years. Started giong to S/S since opening. Our last visit for diner - awfully bad steakes - not tender at all. Prime rib (medium) thin tough an hard - returned and replaced with fillet mignon (medium). Again, not tender, tough and hard, oversmoked as well as mushrooms on steak and not edible with somebody with dentures. Even people sitting next table who vitnessed our situation told me while leaving that their lobster dinner was not as advertized. We are (vere) visiting this place in Anchorage since it opened and food quality is going down. Service excellent. In December for our 50th aniversary it will not be Simon/Seford.

    The view is spectacular. The food and service was merely adequate. I arrived early evening and was directed to a seat with a spectacular view of the inlet. Although it was early evening and the restaurant was not crowded, service was merely adequate. I found the food to be adequate yet pricey. I located this restaurant by searching for Anchorage's best seafood. Next time, I will rely on the suggestions of locals.

    I've lived in Anchorage my entire life and have been frequenting Simon's since I was about 10 years old with my parents and now with friends and loved ones. It is still my favorite place in town. It has beautiful views of the inlet (try to get a window seat, but all seats are good). I've had almost everything on the menu. The Artichoke and Crab Dip on the Appetizer list is my fave! Last time I was there I had the Creole Chicken Fettucine. It was a first for me and it did not disappoint. Their cocktail list is great too (try their Scratch Margarita, Brandy Ice or Long Island Ice Tea) All are phenomenal!!

    i can see where this can be a very good place, pricey, but good. but when you start off by being sat in the back (when 90% have a GREAT view) and then the waiter is more concerned with his party of 16 than your party of 4 (hence most of your food is luke warm) it does't work out to a 5 star ...............for me.

    Our lunch was disappointing. The food was lacking flavor and color on the plate. The salmon was over cooked and also lacked flavor. The service was also not to the standard that's expected at Simons. If you're going to go to enjoy the view, be sure to sit in the bar. And stick with the bar menu. The service there is always excellent and you're never disappointed with the bar items. I say this every time I'm disappointed with the dining room and full dinners. It also took 30 minutes to pay after we got our check because they couldn't find the rewards program information.

    Brought mom for 89th birthday dinner. Early dinner but still pretty full with lots of noise, not able to converse much. Her prawns were very good and artistically plated. My New York steak was not tender and under seasoned for my taste. The portabella stuffed mushrooms were great. Good wine at moderate price. Attentive server with pleasing personality. All staff we encountered were solicitous. Couldn't ask for a better view!
