Fat Ptarmigan is located in historical downtown Anchorage, AK. We serve authentic, wood fired pizza in a warm, inviting environment with a focus on service and attention to detail. We reach this goal with our wood-fired oven, house-made mozzarella, and specialty ingredients. Pop in for lunch or dinner and get a warm cup of Cafe Del Mundo's Black Cup coffee or a locally brewed beer along with your meal. Afterwards you can split a plate of our Cannoli's or a cup of divine gelato.

We had made reservations, through Open Table for Saturday evening prior to a show at the PAC and when we arrived we were advised that Fat Ptarmigan had no record of our or anyone else's reservation made through Open Table. I had a copy of our reservation and showed the desk staff and they were great, finding us a perfect table for 2 near the windows. Our meal & drinks were enjoyable and our evening went smoothly from there.

Whatever the problem transmitting reservations to the individual dining establishment should be examined and repaired since our good experience could have been ruined.

Just a quiet and causal dinner date with my husband. We’re always pleased with our meals and try to order something other than “the regular” every now and then. Very friendly and well timed service from the wait staff. I highly recommend Fat Ptarmigan and I doubt you could go wrong with anything on their menu from my experience 😁

Was only able to book 4 seats through Opentable, but added message that we would like 6. Never got reply. We showed up to a table for 6. Would have been nice to know ahead of time so we could have brought another couple.

Food is always good. We got some standards pizza and Mac and cheese. 12 bucks a bowl is a bit steep for the portion size.

Food came quickly, but server was mostly missing. Not very attentive.

Bill was $99. We paid with $100 in gift cards. Had to ask for my not empty card back. Yeah, it’s only a buck, but it was my buck.
And, yes, I did leave a tip. 20%.

We typically only come here on New Years Eve because it’s close to fireworks. Guessing we won’t be back until then. Hopefully we’ll get better service.

Good food, waitress I think was having a tough evening. Forgot to place our order for appetizers and then put onions on pizza when she was told twice that the wife is allergic to onions. No matter ended up a good evening. Food delivered in a timely fashion and pizzas were delicious. Overall a solid experience.

Great service, great food! Considering it was New Years Eve, we were in and out in a timely fashion and never felt rushed or that things were taking too long with how busy it was .

Really great pizza here, but I would be sure to double check if you order gluten free crust that it's actually gluten free crust. We found out when getting the bill that it was not gluten free crust although that's what was written down. We will return because the pizza is excellent for what we order, we will just be extra sure our order is correct before we eat it all next time.

Overcrowded, understaffed. Had reservations but was never asked about that, nor would it have sped up the check-in process.
Pizza was great, but overall craziness not worth the price.

Food was not bad. At the time we went service was not so great. Once we were able to get someone to seat us we did get a bit more attention but not as much as we would have liked.

Service was a bit slow, but very nice and professional. We were there during off hours. Not sure if that was the issue.

We had caprese salad and a house salad with cheese bread. Nothing special.

I spent a vew months living in Italy and quickly learned to love wood fired pizza. Fat Ptarmigans did very well with their pizza. Great crispy crust!! The only recommendation I could offer would be in add more traditional ingredients. While I greatly enjoyed the pepperoni pizza my favorite, Hawaiian, was not available nor my wife’s veggie choices. Not everyone enjoys designer pizza.

The Fat Ptarmigan— what a great name for an Anchorage eatery. The menu offered wonderful and tasty variety of flatbreads, salads and brews. Our wait staffer was personable, helpful, and friendly in helping us decide on beverages and salads. We had an early dinner and it was easy to chat across the table.

Had the Hot Copa pizza it was excellent. I was disappointed that one of the limited time craft brews was no longer available. You would think they would stop advertising it on the specials menu if they no longer served it. Wish they had a smaller size pizza, the 12" seems to be all they make and its a bit much when eating alone (although I did eat it all).
