Aerie Restaurant & Lounge Ratings and Reviews
Very disappointed with my entree. Over spiced (not indicated on the menu). And I could barely cut through the eggplant. Salad was very good and service was exceptional. Lounge was nice as always. Being a local, I wish I could say this was on my list of go-to restaurants. But the food is always mediocre. Wish I could give a better review :(
Overall experience was good, however, our waiter's customer service was not the best. I did complain to the manager whose explanation was, they were short staff due to whether and the staff was a bit overwhelmed. I personally feel that when it comes to customer service, that explanation was not sufficient but an excuse for poor service.
Our food was so good! Our service, not so much. Our waiter was short with his answers then while tending to our table he was quite rude to the table next to us. He was very nice in the end. It seemed as though he had a tiring day or was irritated with something else. Other than that, our food was so good, we absolutely loved it!
Thanksgiving Day self serve buffet. Had to wait 20 minutes to be seated with our reservation. Food was fine; just not the excellent caliber we are used to at Aerie. We had the final reservation time of the night (6pm); some offerings were plentiful, others were all gone. Had to seek out wait staff for water many times. Wanted to order a bottle of wine, but took so long for server to return, we declined as most of our party was finished with their food. We REALLY wanted coffee with the desserts. No one around. Finally asked another waitress to bring coffee. Our waiter did deliver it, but a good 15 minutes after we asked. At this point, the majority of the patrons were gone, so we were perplexed as to the lack of attentive service. We were a party of eight, the bill was approximately $300. I left a 15% tip....very unusual, as our minimum is normally 20% or more. But as we pretty much took care of ourselves, it seemed sufficient .
Amazing from start to finish. The only thing that could have been better is a fabulous sunset..it was a cloudy evening but the views were still spectacular with the fall leaves and the misty clouds.
The neighboring table of ladies was having a hooting great party...they were having fun...we were looking for a quieter atmosphere but we had a lovely time, fabulous food, great wine, attentive service. I will definitely be returning :)
This was my first time at Aerie with my significant other. We walked in and we're immediately blown away by the view. It was absolutely beautiful as we got there before the sun started setting and got to watch it go down. Jenny, our waitress was ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL. She was so attentive to us, gave great descriptions of the food and excellent suggestions after asking us a couple questions. The food was so delicious and the portions were out of this world. Definitely recommend if you're celebrating something special and want the perfect ambiance!
The service was outstanding. Our wait staff took very good care of us during our visit. The food overall was excellent. Only minor cooking related issues but overall awesome. The view is unbeatable. Pricing is on the high end so this is not a value option. Best for special events more than a daily spot to go. Great for the experienced foodie.
We had our Anniversary dinner here...everything was excellent..our waiter David was amazing. His recommendations were spot on...we will definitely come back every time we are in Traverse City. If you want awesome food at reasonable prices, this is a must, and the views aren't bad either.
We also had dinner there the night before. Special Jamican menu.. a bit disappointing all the way around. Service was an issue. We had to be asked if someone was taking care of our table
and then felt we were getting substandard service. At dinner had to tell them how to make my
dirty martini.. and at brunch had to wait on coffee because we we were told they couldn't keep
up because it was so busy.. Although there were empty tables. Also had breakfast at Sweetwater friday morning.. and again advised to get breakfast buffet as ordering off the menu
wasn't a good idea because they were so busy.. empty tables as well..
We were attending a conference and chose Aerie for a small client appreciation meal. We ended up choosing wonderful appetizers, wine and dessert and the views and ambiance were spectacular. I look forward to the next opportunity to dine here and visit the Grand Traverse resort.
Worth it. And far surpasses the terrible service and mediocre menu at Sweetwater Bistro, and the bar food at Jax. The food was excellent, and a fabulous drink menu. Make a reservation though. If you don't they will not allow you to sit in the restaurant but will ask you to sit at the bar which has a limited menu. It's weird.
Our server was not good at refilling drinks, clearing table between brunch courses, etc. She seemed too busy and distracted. The food was good, not great (main course selection was limited to 2 items, and pecan pie was burned).
Staff needs some additional customer service training to be serving $$$ brunch. But the view was wonderful.
Aerie has always been one of our favorite places; it's a special destination for us. On this trip, we dined there on two consecutive nights. Our servers were Jenny the first night and Michael the second. They provided excellent service with care and enthusiasm. The food at Aerie is alwas top-notch, and the servers go out of their way to make the evening even more enjoyable. The sunset photo was taken from our table on the second night.
