    When I set our reservation I reserved for the "high top" seating and when we arrived they gave us regular seating. When I asked about the high top seating they had no idea what I was talking about. Our server wasnt very good. I feel like I got bamboozled into buying something I didnt want. When we ordered our food she asked what soup or salad we wanted with our meal. I was under the impression we got to choose cause it came with the meal. Then when I got the bill, I found it was a seprate charge. When I asked our server about the extra charge she acted like she had no idea what I was talking about and stated everything on our menu is charged sir. Had she informed me it was an extra charge instead of seeming like it comes with our meal I wouldnt have agreed to the salad. Yes this restaurant is "fancy" for people like me. The last thing I would expect is to feel like I got shaded over a salad. But it happened.

    We sat near the entrance/elevator where the ceiling is very high. We felt a bit isolated, as the restaurant wasn’t full. The food was very good but priced high. Scallops excellent, filet excellent, chicken very good. Spent pre-dinner time at the bar, which I would highly recommend. Friendly server, good charcuterie board, good drinks, good view.

    This was New Year’s brunch. The tables were bleak with no centerpieces or decor to signify that it was New Year’s Day. …It was disappointing that there was no festive feel for a holiday whatsoever. Our service was fine, but it was a buffet brunch where the service was really our own. The food was cold, ( think cold eggs Benedict…ewwwww….) the sausages were dried up like sausage jerky. The Buffet table had food and crumbs all over it. The carving station served beef that was well done and dried out. Honestly, there wasn’t anything I ate that was good at all. This was absolutely one of the worst dining experiences I’ve had in recent memory. It’s a shame because the venue has the view. But the restaurant has done nothing to add ambience, and the food was beyond horrible. The Grand Traverse resort is undergoing a renovation and hopefully that will include this restaurant.

    We were there for the New Year's Brunch Buffet. The food was not the greatest, much of it was overcooked from being out to long. The omelet and roast beef were great. The deserts were good except for the Creme Brulee which should have been heated on top just prior to serving but was just sitting out and cold on top (crusty). The atmosphere and service were top notch.

    Buffet choices were limited and cold. No staff closing the buffet lids meant all the entrees were cold. This used to be a wonderful brunch, now definitely sub-par and very expensive for what you get. Dessert table, in contrast, was excellent.

    For a special event the service staff was not up to par. Upon arrival they tried to seat our reservation for 6 at a larger table set for 10 and we had to ask twice to be moved to a table set for 6. Our server could not remember who ordered which cocktail and we had to pass them down the table to the correct person each time. Dinner service was slow when we were one of only a few tables in the restaurant for our 6:45 reservation. Five of the 6 entrees were served at the same time but the 6th (Vegetarian) came out at least 10 minutes later than the rest of ours. It was embarrassing to have all of us eating but one person. Although the food was good, I would say the preparation was not on par. The salmon and the starch served with it were very dry. The Octopus was very tough/chewy. All six of us were happy with our appetizer and dessert courses.

    We were disappointed that there was no prime rib offered.😥😥 The cake with berries and whipped cream on it was delicious. The ham was also very juicy and tender. I never got there in time for strawberries In the fruit dish. The room was very cold to the point where I had to go get my coat. We were very happy to have a place open on Christmas Day to serve us a good meal. Please have prime rib next year so my brother and husband can be delighted🤩🤩

    Food was complicated. We were looking for more traditional fare. The chicken dish was unappetizing just looking at the colors. Adobe brown and Avacodo cream. It was tough and no flavor. Cold cabbage as its counterpart didn’t add anything to the dish. I picked it cuz I love chicken, my mistake. My husbands steak was very good but the presentation surrounded with huge amount of Brussels sprouts was too much. It was a big plate of brown. I expected a more elegant presentation to match the restaurant. I would recommend the restaurant with conditions.

    Sad to say the food was very high priced and not worth the price. The food itself was mediocre.... The service was very good.... The menu is very limited, not many choices. Very sad because it is a beautiful venue. The place was almost empty. When all the other good restaurants in Traverse CIty were full with no reservations available.. it was easy to see why there were openings here. Sure hope this could improve... thank you

    Our server did not meet our expectations. She seemed to be either very new and/or very distracted. She had to be reminded several times to bring bread and our beverages. My husband overheard the people at the next booth over telling the same server, "We aren't going to eat our entrees because your fingers touched the food." We are Bear Club members and she had no idea what to do with it, i.e, she did not apply our discount to our bill--I assume this is a training issue. She was pleasant but the level of service is not to what we're accustomed to at Aerie.

    The view is what you pay for at this restaurant. This is the most expensive food I have ever paid for at a restaurant. My husband's 6oz sirloin was $68 and my piece of salmon was $45. And when I say "piece" I mean that is all you get. It sat on some kind of puree and was surround by two 1-inch size cubes of squash and one small pearl onion. Needless to say, we were hungry again in a couple of hours. The service was impeccable but not enough to justify the prices.

    The Aerie had great food and service when we went 10 years ago, so we came back to celebrate our 10 yr anniversary and we were very disappointed. The noise level was quite loud but dealt with it. The food was extremely overpriced, small portions and bland. The filet came out way undercooked for what was ordered. Ordered medium rare and it came out rare (raw and cold and barely seared), medium came out medium rare and cold. It took approx 45 min to get our appetizer and drinks. Salad is not included in the expensive dinner, just a couple slivers of carrots and a small pealed chunk of undercooked potato. No seasoning, no sauces and no salt and pepper. We left the Aerie after 2 1/2 long hrs and went downstairs and order pizza at Jacks Taproom which was amazing.

    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.

    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.
