FAT PTARMIGAN IS AWESOME! EVERYTHING WE HAVE EATEN THERE IS INCREDIBLE!
IT WAS AWESOME! HAD NEVER BEEN BEFORE AND WILL FOR SURE GO AGAIN!
It was chilly at our table. The food was very good. Service was good, server was very friendly.
We ABSOLUTELY love Fat Ptarmigan, the food and their staff! Superb experience every time! Did I mention the food is amazing?!
Love Their wood fired pizza
They lost our reservation and, despite appearing to have many open tables, they told us they could not accommodate us and were not willing to try.
Dinner following The Nutcracker, I’m so glad I made reservations as the entry way was packed with other hungry performance attendees! We were seated right away and the food was delicious!
Great service, awesome food and reasonable prices!
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.
Great waiter and wonderful food.
Snotty, arragant hostess with a terrible attitude.
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.
Server was great! Friendly and polite bus boy too!
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).
The Parma pizza with blue cheese was excellent! The Salmon pizza was very good too! Enjoyed our lunch thoroughly!
our lunch was tasty and the wait staff were friendly and helpful!
Great food, great service and really affordable!
Hadn't been in a few years. Menu changes were still excellent. Steak & Stilton pizza is still amazing . Beer selection top notch .
Very very loud when place is busy. A must do when in Anchorage .
Sparse toppings on the pizza for $2 a pop. Need to ask for Parmesan if you want it on your pizza; It wasn't offered. Service was lame.
Good downtown pizza.
They did not honor our reservation on this site! And we’re exyre rude about it.
I've eaten at Fat Ptarmigan about 4 times and each time tried different menu options... I've always been delighted each and every time.
Outstanding oven-fired pizza! Great selection of beer and cocktails!
This was the 3rd time that I've eaten at Fat Ptarmigan and each time was a good experience. They have great pizza and I highly recommend the mushroom pizza.
Great pizza. We enjoyed the "Beer Cheese" za. Friendly service and relaxed atmosphere. The restaurant has 2 sections: Bar and small table seating, and larger tables. We were seated in the larger table area on the "5th Ave side" and it was loud with kids. If you want quiet conversation, I recommend waiting for a table in the "E Street side." However, the "5th Ave side" is great for people watching. Reasonably priced. We'll be back.
Delicious! Great food, great service, fun place to go with friends.
Were waited on and serviced in a timely manner, but when we asked for our check it was a 15 minute wait to get checked out. Had to finally walk up to the front and track down our sever.
Good food and not busy during the off-season... a little spendy but the food was very tasty... would have liked more from the appetizer... great for a bite before a show.
Service was poor. Dining room was cold. Don’t get the pretzel, you’re sure to be disappointed. I have no idea how this place can be in the top restaurants in Anchorage. I was looking forward to trying them out but now wish I hadn’t.
Only 1 waiter, he did a great job considering he had no back up help from hostess, bussers or cook. Food was excellent but would have like to see them work as a team. Fyi it was paint night too in the back room so maybe just don't go on those nights.
Wear your coat if you are going to dine at this restaurant. Over the last two years I've been there 4 times. Three of the times I have worn my coat and sat on my hands to try to keep warm!
On this visit I ordered the Caesar salad and Creamy Garlic Chicken. Items I have ordered previously and liked well enough to order them again. There must have been a shortage of garlic and salt at the restaurant the night I visited because dishes were very bland and the chicken was only luke warm when it arrived at the table.
The food always seems to be very good. Just had pizza this night and it was great; however the service was not up to par and it was cold and noisy. Usually not a problem but it was a date night and I thought we might get a table away from the middle of the floor (which is where we were). FYI - it was paint night so the room was off limits to regular diners.
Tyler was great! Food was great!
The host was smug and not welcoming. We waited 10 minutes before even being acknowledged by our waitstaff. This was 5:00pm on a Sunday so it was not busy. Food was mediocre at best and definitely not up to par with the high end menu price. Overall unimpressed. Will not be going back anytime soon.
Made reservations for Valentine's day. Long story short, was about 10 mins late (called to let them know we were looking for parking) and they gave away our table. Finally got a table 30 mins later. Ordered food and never got our kids food. No apology from waiter/management. Horrible service.
It was Valentines Day. We arrived half an hour early for our reservation, thinking we might have to wait, but they were able to seat us. Wonderful pizza. Fun atmosphere and attentive staff.
We were going to a show at the PAC, a short walk from FP, and planned to have dinner before the show. The food, drinks and service were outstanding. We will certainly return again.
It wasnt really the fault of the restaurant (it was January) but it was uncomfortably cold inside...
Pizza has a very good flavor, only thing I would mention is that the bottom of the pizza gets too burnt.
