    Dined on 9/14/2014
    We've been taking guests to eat here for many years, but our recent visit was a very poor experience. Our food took an extremely long time to arrive - despite us having a couple of drinks & appetizers. Our waiter seemed have disappeared for 15 minutes and someone else brought our food, and it was lukewarm when it arrived. The broccoli was dark green and overcooked. I did let the server know. He asked if I would like another plate, but I told him all our dishes were lukewarm and we did not have time for another round of food to be prepared (I didn't want to make a big deal of it). They also offered us a complimentary dessert for the table to share but we had other dessert plans. The view is great.

    I made the reservation and dove in.A lot of good reviews, the hostess greeted right away, shuffled us to the back corner of the restaurant must have thought we were underdressed and did not meet their "high standards".Our first server took our app order, then we got a different server which took our entree order.A third server checked up on us, we asked for the check and the when they came back to us and must have been very put upon that night commented "would you just give that table their check". Sorry for spending our hard earned money to get classless service and mediocre food.Do your self a favor and go to more popular "Alehouse's nearby to get better service, and better than average food".

    Hoped for a quiet table & exceptional food to celebrate wedding anniversary. Got partial view table in very loud area. Food was good but not worth the $30+ per plate & $18 appetizer. Waiter was quite good but was over-tasked with too many tables.

    We have a team dinner here and were hoping to sample some good Alaskan seafood. From our team of 8 people, 3 meals had to be sent back, and at least 2 others had complaints. When one of the members of our party who sent their (cold) fish back decided not to order a second option, she was promptly served with her bill (for wine) as an offer that she was free to leave the establishment. OVerall, none from our party was particularly impressed by the food or service. It was really too bad, because we had all been looking forward to a nice experience. I would not recommend this restaurant to a friend or business colleague.

    We frequent this establishment, it is my wife's favorite. Halibut cheeks were not aviailable this time around but they offered to prepare the halibut the same way they do the cheeks, that was very thoughtful. I had the prime rib which is excellently seasoned (minus horseradish). Had to send back as I recieved it with horseradish on the rib. I recieved the same cut of meat back with the horseradish removed, the flavor unfortunately was still on the meat (wiped or washed off?). The waitress who was excellent (Denise) offered to return, but I told her not to (meal delay already). Simon's is excellent and I hope this was just an aberration. Will return though for this is my wife's favorite place.

    We celebrated a family birthday milestone. This was the perfect location. With a variety of diners with different particular dietary concerns, our server made sure everyone was well taken care of. He was fun and very knowledgeable of the food and willing to be sure we had everything we needed. We would certainly make this a special event dining location again!

    Great food and service. It was very busy and as a result service was slow. Nearly cancelled an after dinner cappuccino because it took so long to get. Otherwise, a good place to take guests. Waiter was doing the best he could with the workload.

    Dined on 9/4/2014
    S & S is usually a great place. This time my MEATLOAF was dry, the SEAFOOD ÉTOUFFÉE had WAY too much hot seasoning (my guest couldn't eat it) and my Vodka Collins tasted like syrup. My waiter/bartender tried to tell me it couldn't be made less "syrupy." Shockingly lame, but I didn't want to make a scene. I ordered beer. Love this place. Hope my less-than-good experience isn't the beginning of a decline. Will try again and continue recommending.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 9/1/2014
    My husbands steak dinner was requested rare, medium rare. His plate came out with steak that looked burnt, cooked nearly all the way through, and mashed potatoes that were hard and crusty from sitting under the heat lamp for so long (we are assuming). Requested dinner be taken back, and refund for his plate. Management apologized, and did not argue the fact.

    We first ate at Simon & Seafort's in the summer of '98. My husband is a loving of crab. Since we would be in Anchorage again we reserved a table. Once again the service was friendly but outstanding. All the staff made us feel special and welcome. The crab we ordered was fresh and abundant. The shrimp were huge and the chowder delicious. We had an excellent meal. The price was fitting with the amount of food you received.

    We had eaten at Simon and Seafort's 18 years ago and we're inamored with their crab legs. However this time the crab legs were a big disappointment. They were not very tasty, and were served only warm, not hot. We Also hAd The Prime Rib But It Was "Chewy", Under Cooked, And Not Very Hot. However The Service Was good. Was Way over-Priced For Whst We Were Served.

    We, a group of 7, met up for my birthday dinner. It was a great time, food was good - kind of lacking in the burst of flavor that it used to have, but still good. I should have gotten a to go box instead of force eating and I could have enjoyed it the next day too. I have loved this restaurant for almost if not 30 years and go there whenever I can for a nice dinner. Downsides - the drink, a virgin daquari, was alcohol tasting - although they replaced it it was still in the back of my mind. Friend had a really salty scallop dish, they did replace it without the sauce and it was better My free dessert was brought originally as the wrong one. All of these were fixed and taken off the bill but I feel it could've been better.

    The bar was dirty and odoriferous, loud, there was no obvious effort to clean tables for people having a drink while waiting to be seated despite the obvious concerns that a large population of cruise ship people bring to the table. We ordered the red king crab, which was served partially heated, with soggy shells. The biggest disappointment was the so called famous au gratin potatoes that looked and tasted like they had been reheated, at least once. The price point was very high. This was the biggest disappointment of a restaurant we have had in a long time.

    Not overly impressed while food was good when it finally arrived.However We had a Reservation for 8pm and we were not seated until 9pm and then didn't see wait staff until 9:15 by then already frustrated with service.. Server Apologizes we never heard from management.. This Restaurant was highly recommended to us, However, I don't feel it was worth the time we spent there getting service.. They clearly overbooked and understaffed... If you have a choice or don't mind spending 3+ Hours getting dinner then by all means stop by but bring your sleeping bag and a snickers bar you may be there a while...

    I've given Simon and Seaforts many chances, each experience worse than the last. It seems they have a knack for over cooking their food from dried out halibut, to soupy mashed potatoes, with an exception to beef, which has a tendency to be undercooked.
