Really enjoyed celebrating our anniversary here. Food was even better than I anticipated and the view was breathtaking. Sun will likely be in your eyes in the evening but we made do. Only course we didn’t like was the flourless chocolate cake (too bitter) but everything else was perfect.
Fantastic experience. Only issue was when it came down to presenting the bill. Our server handed it to me and said" I assume you paying for this since it's his birthday." I understand the gesture but I did not enjoy the assumption because it was HIS birthday that I the female was paying the bill.
The view is wonderful; probably the best in the Traverse City area. While the menu was more on the traditional side, the food was very good. The staff was attentive; there was only a short wait for food after it was ordered. Given the ambience of the restaurant, light classical instead of light pop rock from the 60s and 70s would have been a better choice (personally) for background music. Easy parking. Overall, an excellent experience; I would go back for special occasions and with visitors from out of the area (if for no other reason than for the view.)
Everything was wonderful. From the cocktails and appetizers to the dessert and port selections. Highly recommend if you are looking for fine dining experience.
Great view, great food and good service. Always a must stop when in TC.
Our dinner was outstanding as was our waitress, Katie
Not as many food choices as hoped. We had put “Anniversary” on our reservation but got no recognition.
The food was good. The cod was great as was the asparagus. Very low key but that was ok.
Excellent good and great service. The best view available anywhere in the area.
Spectacular view, friendly and attentive service. The food was quite good. Price was reasonable but on the high end.
Very upscale yet not pricey. The view is outstanding from shopping area to golf course to the bay.
Bronzini Was delicate and buttery with rich creamy sauce and sweetcorn crunch. Barrata cheese paired well with arugula pesto but not the balsamic 🍐 pears. Ahi cooked just right, awesome and large portion. Server a lovely person and well trained. The view was superb, matching the cuisine. Must return to sample the desserts.
We chose Aerie for our anniversary dinner because we wanted a view of the bay. We were not disappointed as the view was spectacular. The food was delicious with very special sauces on everything from the mussels for an appetizer to the sea bass entree. Our server, Patrick, did an excellent job and Max was helpful with our wine selection.
We came here for our 5th anniversary for fillets and bourbon and it did not disappoint, the view of the sunset over the bay is one of the best I have ever seen.
The presentation of the salmon entrée was outstanding. The accompaniment of prosciutto wrapped asparagus in a Hollandaise was excellent. The roasted pork entrée that my wife was served had a "kick" and was very tasty. Patrick served our table. He was knowledgeable of the menu items, had good timing, and was just chatty enough to make us feel welcome. We have already lined up friends for a dinner there next week!
Always enjoy the brunch and the amazing view. But there is always something strange with the wait staff that does not match the rest of the experience. This time the dirty table cloth from the previous guest was rolled up on one of the chair and the waitress kept trying to clear plates before we were done. Nothing that distracts from how much we enjoyed our visit, just out of sync with the rest of the expirience. Looking forward to our next visit!
The staff from the manager Mr. Truck to our waitress and the bus staff were outstanding and went our of their way to make us feel welcome. We had a grand meal and a grand time.
It was good. No flexibility in moving to a better table even though the restaurant was not busy. Servers having sections was the excuse. Expected a bit more flexibility. Food was good, liked the plate presentation. Service was above average but could have increased the average check if he was reading our table the right way. Timing of meals worked out well. Cocktails were very good. Restaurant needs to update their glassware, it was more Banquet style than restaurant look and feel. Update the uniforms as well please. Should be more progressive than using a Banquet server style best and black pants. But overall, it was good. The salmon and steak were cooked perfectly.
We were spending several nights in the Grand Traverse Hotel on business, and decided to eat in the hotel restaurant, Aerie, the first night. We had planned eating in Traverse City the next two nights. Our meal was so outstanding we spent each night of our stay dining in house. The food was delicious, unique and original, beautifully presented, and an absolute find so close to our rooms. The waitstaff was attentive and the service perfect. We will be back!
Word class views. Server Rose was knowledgeable about menu and helpful with selections. Artichoke appetizer was terrific and the tuna entree was outstanding. Good selection of scotch and nice wines by the glass. Beautiful evening.
Sunday brunch for Mother's Day, excellent variety and quality of breakfast and lunch foods with a dessert bar. I really enjoy their maple flavored sausage, and the eggs benedict, substituting smoked salmon for Canadian bacon, were the best I ever had. Sixteen floors high in the Grand Traverse Resort offers an outstanding view over the bay.
Excellent menu and venue. Staff was gracious and accommodating.
Beautiful view..lovely place for a special dinner
Everything was good food could have been a little warmer...
We had dinner at 7:00 PM on a Wednesday night. Great view until fog rolled in but you can't control the weather! Staff very helpful and not pushy at all and since it was our first time Patrick was more than helpful explaining the menu and options.
Great food. Service was quite slow but luckily we were in relax mode. Nearly 75 minutes to receive our main entries.
Bronzini was sort of fishy. Very pricey. Could have used more menu choices.
We went to Aerie to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. I requested a view not knowing that there is not a table in the restaurant that has a bad view of the bay. It was breathtaking to see the sun set during dinner. The food was amazing. It was all very fresh with many local ingredients. We went back for Sunday brunch and the selection was impressive and delicious. It was an amazing way to start and finish the weekend for sure.
Always a joy to dine here, with fantastic views of the Bay, good service, and interesting regional food selections.
We did the Sunday brunch because it was recommended by a coworker- 10 stars! It was beautiful and delicious. Sitting on the 16th floor with the view of the bay was breathtaking. I don’t think there was a bad seat in the house! Our server, Pat, was super friendly and asked about our weekend and gave us ideas of more things to do. I wasn’t sure about the $22.95 price tag but it was well worth it! This is a must if you’re in Traverse City!
Our dinner was a special occasion - birthday and anniversary. Staff was professional and very friendly. The view (and sunset) was spectacular! I highly recommend this restaurant.
Definitely recommend for the Sunday brunch. Omelette station was excellent and many other choices! Patrick, our server was awesome. An overall excellent experience!
We enjoyed a delightful dinner, at every level, at Aerie!! Would highly recommend this amazing spot for its outstanding service, quality and presentation of our dinner and the scenic atmosphere. The restaurant is a true gem!
Everything was awesome, Devin, our server, was was very good. Couldnt ask for a better anniversary dinner.
Really love this place. Came last year for our anniversary and we are going to make it a yearly event.
We were extremely excited about Easter brunch on Sunday, but were disappointed with selection and service. My wife and I are both managers in the hospitality industry and maybe our expectations are higher then most, but the service seemed chaotic and not consistent. No one seemed assigned to tables, and I think we counted four different types of server uniforms, including a couple servers without name badges. It all went down hill from the moment we entered the room, the hostess seemed bored and unenthusiastic and no attempt was made to make light conversation. This was our first time in your restaurant and weren't quite sure how it all worked so a little small talk would have went a long way on the way to our table. The food selection was decent, but nothing stood out, especially dessert. I have to say the omelet station was very good and the gentleman working was very polite. Another opportunity missed was that we were never offered additional alcoholic drinks after our first free one. We were willing to have a few more, but were never approached. I expect to pay higher prices for this type of event, but felt we didn't see the value on the very basic things expected from a venue such as this. I apologize in advance because I know what its like to get these types of reviews, but felt I should be honest, thanks for your time.
We had Rose as our server and she was absolutely the greatest!!!
We love this brunch!!!! Our favorite place. The food is outstanding
The server, Jenny, was very friendly and fun; as was the manager/sommelier. The wines recommended were fantastic. The food was presented well and delicious. Half of our group lived in the area and the others were from out of town. All were impressed and would come back during daylight hours to really see the beautiful view.
