    The purpose for attending the restaurant was the view, which was amazing. The food was okay and our waitress was really nice!

    Michael was our waiter. He was slow moving. He said he’d bring our bread. We waited and waited then my husband had to ask for our bread. I ordered soup. We waited and waited. My husband had to ask Michael for the soup. The soup was barely warm. By now we were really annoyed. Even our water didn’t get refilled fast enough nor often enough. Same thing with the entree. After waiting, we were told it would be out “ in two minutes.” Well, it took about ten minutes. Same thing with dessert. It took too long to get our dessert. Michael needs to hustle. His personality is adynamic. The food was good, but the service was poor.

    Aerie has always been one of our favorite restaurants, but on this visit we were disappointed. Very few items to choose from, chicken was tough and chewy and branzino was just so-so. I hope they return to their prior quality.

    This was supposed to be a special place. Disorganized, brought a bad drink had to refuse it. 2 for dinner, 2 different menus, wine mix up. Food was poorly prepared. Service was disorganized, staff not knowing what was going on. The only thing good really was the view. Very sad. They should be ashamed. Waste of money. Eat in downtown TC. Far better value.

    Great service and meal, in terms of taste. Our entree could have been a bit larger. There was a large groups of men eating together who were quite loud, but that’s not the restaurant’s fault Overall a very memorable evening!

    They are amazing because they took our party of 20 people. The Brussels sprouts are the best we’d ever had. Every dessert is amazing. Service was great! My only issue was that every steak ordered (at least 10) were WAY over cooked. Steaks ordered rare didn’t have an ounce of pink. Overall the experience was great, next time we will put more clarification on RARE.

    The best thing about the restaurant as would would guess is the view! Very limited menu, and a bit pricey for what you get. Very problematic with noise due to the fact that the level above the restaurant is half walled and if there is a function going on up there it pours over into the restaurant. Unfortunately, very disruptive for an upscale dining venue.

    The food and service were great! We will definitely make our future reservations after 7:45 next time. Otherwise, you have to eat dinner with the sun in your face. Wish they would invest in some kind of shades.

    While the food quality was excellent, as was the ambience, the portions were a bit small for the price and service was uneven at best. Our server could not have been nicer or friendlier, but there were some missteps. She brought Chardonnay that was room temperature. An ice bucket helped but the wine needed to chill in it for some time. Also, she would disappear for 10-15 minutes at a time and offered to refill wine glasses just once (when it was not really needed). I ended up with the wine duties. She vanished again for 15 minutes after dropping off dessert menus so after getting tired of waiting, we just decided to have dessert at home. The load that night in the restaurant was not heavy and there was ample staff. We have enjoyed fine cuisine at Aerie 3 or 4 times before but there are places nearby in Traverse City where the food is just as good and the service outstanding.

    Went there yesterday, and the whole experience was dull and awful, my little girl accidentally spilled my wine on the entrée mix that, and no one offered to replace it or do anything about, the wine glasses were so thick they looked like water glass. Anyway, all we got is an entrée and wine then left. We simply had the worst experience between food and service there and won’t be going back there or recommend this restaurant to anyone else

    We came for dinner. My husband ordered the chicken dish. There wasn’t even a whole chicken breast to the meal. The rice was cold beneath the chicken. The steak was over cooked. They gave you one slice of potato beneath the steak that was cold. Definitely not worth $65 per plate. This place was a total disappointment. Wouldn’t come here again.

    Great view and good, but not great food. Service was good but our server had more tables than he could handle. It seemed that they were out of several things and couldn’t provide everything on the menu. A great example is that their espresso machine was broken and so there was no espresso or cappuccino.

    Had reservations at 5 pm, arrived at 4:57pm no one was in restaurant, wait staff asked us to wait in lounge for 3 minutes. Strange. Drinks very small Dinner bread even smaller, I would be embarrassed to serve, Only good thing my wife and I laughed about it all night long. Menu very limited and over priced View was amazing Salmon pretty good Restaurant has a lot of potential, needs new management
