  • Not sure what happened...
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 10/22/2014
    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.

    Tesseract
    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!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 10/11/2014
    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!

    Went on a Sunday evening, not too many people. We were seated by the windows where the view was very nice. The service was adequate and commensurate with the prices paid, thing is, the food wasn't... We had the crab stuffed halibut, which was overcooked and dry, and the seafood étouffée which is best described as...meh. Both dishes carried a hefty price tag and were disappointing. Take note though, we had the scratch grand margaritas and loved them. Overall, go for the bar and appetizers, skip the overpriced underachievers served in the dining room.

    We always bring our guests here for a meal you can count on to be delicious and fresh. Portions are good. King salmon and stuff halibut awesome- Oysters Rockefeller were tasty but not the best we've had. Lemon drop cocktail not tasting like made from real lemon juice- had that bottled taste. Service was appropriately paced. Had specifically asked for a window table when I made our reservations but didn't get one.

    When making our reservation, I put in the comments that it was for our anniversary. When we arrived they had rose petals on the table (which was by the window so we had a great view) and the young lady seating us wished us a happy anniversary. We ordered our appetizer (crab&artichoke dip, steak bites and shrimp), which was so good! Our waiter was awesome, our dinner's perfect, we had absolutely no complaints! Once again, Simon & Seafort's exceeded our expectations! Highly recommend!

    It was a wonderful night! Food was spectacular and the time frame is accurate for waiting. You are guaranteed a tasteful delight when it arrives. The staff was amazing and very polite. The waiter was a hoot! He was most helpful in all questions and recommendations on the menu! I reserved online and ordered flowers on their site.(Which brought tears to her eyes) It was romantic and a very respectful atmosphere. I have to say it takes a team to keep a good business in fine dining going. And I have to give kudos to everyone who works there. You guys made the night happen. Thank you. Keep up the team work! Also..you must try the key lime pie...priceless ;)
