It seems the service is a little lax. They’re trying to be attentive but u can sense they don’t want to be there, sloppy dress code, the personal interaction could be improved, etc., and it affects the customer experience and quality of service. It wasn’t terrible, it just didn’t shine. Maybe it’s their rate of pay, I don’t know. But if I’m going to drop $300 for a dinner out it’s because I want a special evening. Basically I don’t want to eat at home for $6 or go to a mid-level restaurant for $60-80 for two. If it’s a 5-star, I’d like 5-star all around. Portions were also too small and overpriced. Chef made an outstanding meal tho - super top quality. View and building are amazing, but those r ether free or built by a previous generation who gets the credit. Sorry, just one man’s opinion and it’s not personal, just a comment for possibly better business.

Every thing was excellent, the only thing was that we had the scallops and got very sick that night!

This was our first experience at the Crow's Nest and it was everything we had heard about it. We met our friends there and had a wonderful, quiet dinner. We can recommend it wholeheartedly.

The awesome 360 view of the Crow's Nest was overrated as you actually only see the view directly from where you are sitting. In addition, the hostess was snippy about recognizing our Open Table reservation and made us sit in the foyer rather than actually seating us. As near as we could tell, that was to encourage customers from going to the bar while they wait. That said the waitperson was good and the food was pretty good but quite expensive.

Had a great girls’ night out. Was disappointed in the mussels and we didn’t even finish them, however all other dishes were delicious! Of course we loved the view, but it would have been nice to have a touch of music as it was pretty empty when we went in and felt awkward being so quiet. Will come again for our anniversary.

Usually really like this place, but having a bus in the salad was a little much. Told our waiter but he seemed unphased. The rest of the meals were great as usual, but bugs in the salad and nothing done about is is not acceptable at a place like this in my opinion

Tasha was an amazing server - attentive and genuinely friendly. Every bite from the bread, corn chowder, entrees, dessert and even after-dinner grand marnier chocolates was superb! The music and the view were also spectacular. This was our first visit and we decided to celebrate a birthday there. Crow’s Nest did not disappoint and we will definitely be returning.

Great view for sure, however booked a 7.45pm we showed up 10 minutes before just to be told to wait and I am pretty sure our table was ready. Crumbles on the chairs is not a good sign for these type of reastaurants. Our Paella wasn't a great choice for 72$ , in terms of portion , cooked rice and also lacking of prawns that should have been in the plate. Quite disappointed this time.

Service was perfunctory. Serving size miniscule. Don't go there for dinner if you're hungry. Views are spectacular. I've been there several times before.... this was the worst experience in terms of service, quantity of food and value.

Food quality has declined over time. We ordered raw oysters - they arrived loooking very dried out and unappetizing. The waiter admitted that they had been pre-shucked (who knows when). Both of our fish dishes were overcooked and dry. Service was spotty. Prices were high for what we received. This used to be a great place for dining and scenic viewing. Sadly, not any more.

Everything was wonderful except for the vegan meal I ordered. I indicated I was vegan when I made the reservation a day ahead. I also asked our waiter if the chef would mind accommodating me and was told it was totally fine. I was so disappointed with what was mostly a block of unseasoned tofu and bland ramen noodles, especially in cosmopolitan Anchorage and one of the most renowned restaurants. To be fair, I was not charged for my dinner and my husband thoroughly enjoyed his. With whole-foods, plant-based diets being a huge trend these days, I hope the next experience/meal will be more thoughtfully prepared.

Excellent romantic birthday meal for my wife and me. The food was creative, tasty, and rich, but not heavy with oil. The portions were modest but appropriate, relative to the calories in each plate. The service was professional and the servers worked well as a team to ensure we had a seamless experience. The ambiance was "elevated" and lent itself well to our conversation. It was a pricey meal, no doubt, but we had a splendid time and considered it worth the cost for once-a-year fine dining.

My Husband and I went to dinner night before last at Crows Nest. It was one of the best dinners, wait staff, and view we’ve ever had. Wish I had asked our waitress what her name was... she was exceptional ! Will definitely return! Thanks to Open Table.
