    We were in Anchorage for a short time only and were not staying at the hotel, but heard good things about the restaurant. Having experienced one or two other restaurants decided to give the Crows Nest a visit and were definitely not disappointed in any way. Great food and excellent service. Highly recommend.

    A nice meal with the best view in Anchorage. Fish was obviously very fresh and well prepared. Vibe is much more relaxed than I expected (people were seated wearing jeans, demeanor of waitstaff was quite casual). Not quite up to snuff for those used to lower 48 fine dining, but I’m not sure there are many other options for fine dining in the state!

    Every visit to the Crows Nest is so wonderful!! It’s always a truly relaxing experience (especially in their high back cozy booths). It’s definitely considered a special occasion restaurant for most people. The food & drinks are always incredibly delicious using the highest quality ingredients which are mostly locally sourced which I think many people including myself appreciate. The waitstaff/ bussers are all friendly & attentive and it doesn’t feel pretentious like some fine dining restaurants can be. They have a special birthday plate (complete with a candle to blow out )when you order dessert if they know it’s someone’s birthday. We LOVE the cute little set of complimentary coffee accompaniments of cinnamon sticks, sugar, sprinkles, cream & delicious cookies! We always look forward to the next birthday or celebration dinner here. Thanks for your continued excellence!

    Crow’s Nest was recommended to me by a friend and it was my birthday so we thought that celebrating there would be the perfect start to our Alaska vacation. We were seated in a booth in the restaurant near the entrance to and exit from the kitchen (we did not realize this as this was our first visit to the restaurant). Our drinks and appetizers arrived promptly. After a wait of 45-50 minutes, I walked around the restaurant and realized that we had been steered to the worst booth in the restaurant and there were plenty of good seating locations available. The person at the host station had asked me upon arrival whose birthday we were celebrating and I would have thought he would have tried to make it a good experience. As stated earlier our seating location was near the kitchen entrance/exit and the smell of food cooking became overpowering. We paid for our drinks and appetizers and chose to enjoy my birthday by walking around Anchorage.

    Beautiful setting. Excellent service. The amouse bouche, and bread before the meal were delightful. I ate: black cod with chamomile, with roe and a quinoa cake Tomato soup. The fish was perfectly cooked and delicious with the quinoa cake, the tomato soup was excellent. Otherwise a normal meal.

    One of the highlights of our honeymoon. Beautiful view of Cook Inlet. The service was great, start to finish, but the food was truly the star. We started with a half order of oysters with blueberry mignonette, which were bright and fresh. For entrees, we had the cod (very good) and the salmon, which was spectacular. We then opted for ice cream for dessert: a scoop of bourbon caramel and a scoop of honey lavender, with a cup of decaf coffee. The bourbon caramel was really good but the honey lavender was incredible and a perfect finish to the evening. Definitely recommend and look forward to going back on our next visit!

    We recently visited Alaska for our honeymoon and came to Crows Nest after a family recommendation. The food and wine was absolutely phenomenal! I ordered the steak and my husband ordered the salmon, which were both amazing. The service was also outstanding and the views are unbeatable too. We’ll definitely be back to visit!

    100% perfection! 💎 💎 💎 💎 Four Diamond restaurant, The Crow’s Nest, was everything the hype and magazines promised! Positively exceptional and the perfect way to celebrate being in Alaska! Started with a Sunburned Musher cocktail. Amuse Bouche was a lightly pickled cucumber tomato salsa- divine! Then a king crab and corn bisque. A French Simonnet-Febvre Chablis Chardonnay recommended to pair with my Halibut with pea and apricot accoutrements and sweetened purple potato. Topped off with a Graham’s 10 year tawny port to accompany my crème brûlée! I’m in heaven!! View is pretty great too!

    I've eaten at a couple fine dining restaurants in my day. The food here is not worth the price. Ridiculously small portions and was disappointed with the halibut. Also, the lobster soup bland and gone in 2 bites. Most likely not coming back. The plus side was the service was amazing! The server and bead guy were on there A game. The hostess was a very nice guy and said happy birthday to my girl.
