Alex the manager what above and beyond for me to propose to my future wife...... I deftly made the right choice by choosing your restaurant being a first timer to Traverse City I would highly recommend it to anyone I know. The scenery was beautiful looking forward to Staying at your resort in the future

We made a reservation thinking it might be busy. When we got there, there was only one other table with people at it. Within five minutes of sitting down, we received water, from a woman whom I’m not sure was our waitress or not, as she did not speak a single word to us. I was waiting to order a drink but she never asked. We waited 15 more minutes, with no interaction from a sever or anyone else in the restaurant before deciding it was not worth waiting around for and left. No one even took our drink order. We were visiting for our anniversary and it was the worst part of our stay at the resort, which we took advantage of all amenities, including the spa and golf at two out of three courses. Disappointing to say the least.

The views were excellent! My wife’s filet was slightly undercooked to her taste but the server did send it back for a quick re-fire. The risotto was well cooked and had good flavor. The mojito was watered down and most likely had been sitting for awhile prior to serving it to me. It was a slow evening but we were seated near the kitchen area and you could hear most of the staff’s conversations. Not really what we expected from a fine dining experience.

We went for a couples trip to TC, and wanted to end the trip on a high note. This fulfilled it! Great views and due to Covid it was not busy at all. We felt very safe from walking in to the hotel with sanitizing stations and the temperature check for every guest. The food was delicious, not many options but that worked better for us.

Limited menu and overpriced main dishes Excellent views and we had an excellent waiter but the place was very noisy. A lot of loud women made everyone annoyed. Need some sound proofing or a private room for these people

The view was beautiful. Our server was great. The presentation of food was beautiful, unfortunately it was very very bland. We had mussels and salmon and both were very underwhelming. This was one of the more expensive dinners we had will visiting Traverse City and while the view and presentation were great, the food was not worth it.

Have been to Aerie on multiple occasions on our annual trip to Traverse City. Spectacular panoramic view of the area in a beautiful contemporary dining setting. The food is exceptional and well priced. Well done highly elevated classic dishes!! Highly recommend the truffle fries as an appetizer with a cocktail...delicious!!Entire staff is attentive and welcoming. We will absolutely return!!

The restaurant was really struggling with help as they were just coming off the COVID lockdown. They did their best but there were some frustrated people in there. Alex the manager and Chad behind the bar did a great job working through it and kept us there. Glad they did as our meal was excellent and well worth the wait.

The view is the best! Great service too. It was very quiet, but I assume during normal times there's a little more energy about the place.

We had a wonderful experience. We did go during restaurant week, so we didn't try their normal menu. But the food was outstanding, (except dessert), service was perfect and the value was there. Really nice place to have dinner.

Dessert felt like they just tossed in some desserts that you could buy at Meijer. Most of the other restaurants in town really seemed to make an effort on all 3 courses, but the desserts fell short here.

We went with another couple to Aerie during restaurant week. The food was amazing and was enjoyed by everyone. No complaints. The restaurant was busy so service was just a little slower than normal but was still excellent. The restaurant manager, Alex was helping bring meals to the table and kept wait times to a minimum. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. The view is spectacular and we were able to watch the sunset from our where we sat.

Food was way overpriced for what they offered and mediocre at best. Could have gotten the same food at Applebee’s and it would have tasted the same. Disappointed to say the least.
