    It was a friends birthday. Every-time we go, we have to look for someone to greet us and then they take forever to take us to our table. Drink order was messed up twice. The food tasted really good but the service is super slow and it is not the first time.

    Very nice welcome, staff are friendly. The ambiance is lovely with a spectacular view except we went for dinner so no view but still very special. The food is delicious. My one critique would be that a fine dining restaurant is charging for bread service. The bread is homemade sourdough and really good but they charge $15 for the bread if you want it. Most fine dining (and many) restaurants, it would be complimentary. I also asked for more butter and was charged an extra $2. There was a very loud gentleman at the next table talking the whole time and that put us off our meal a bit. The wine list is very expensive. We had German beer on tap and it was delicious and paired nicely with the German cuisine. There is something on the menu for everyone but the Chef is German so try one of his homeland dishes! Can’t beat the view!

    Overall: Great location to have a meal. Service: Pitiful. Server was very nice, but perhaps overburden with larger tables on other side of the restaurant. Took 9 minutes for a drink order and at times coffee and water cups empty for a similar length of time. Spent 2H10M at the venue and did not intend/want to. Food: Hard to mess up brunch. Quite delicious. Hollandaise sauce was delicious and not too rich. Ambiance: Beautiful location with stunning PNW views. Some furnishings needing update.

    If you're looking for a quiet fine dining restaurant Alpina this is the place. They pay attention to all the small details and that's what makes this a fine dining establishment.

    First off I would like to say a massive thank you to all of the wonderful staff that were working on New Years Eve. It was my partner and I’s first à la carte menu dinning experience. We had no idea what to expect as we had thought the regular menu was to be provided as well (an expensive mistake lol), but I can’t even pretend to be disappointed because the food was absolutely AMAZING and in my opinion worth every penny. The Lobster Ravioli with black truffle cream sauce was to DIE for and I think they need to add it to their regular menu yesterday. My partner went out of his comfort zone and went with the veal tenderloin for his main course (he doesn’t eat beef very often), he said it was his favourite dish of the evening! For my main I went with the wrapped halibut which was also delicious. I have very few complaints outside of the fact that I did feel that for the price of the meal we would’ve love the bread to have come out warm, but this is just me getting nit picky. The atmosphere was very nice and quiet which I much prefer to the loud dinning experiences you may have elsewhere. Overall wonderful dinning experience! We will be back to try their regular menu items as well.

    We had the best Christmas dining experience at Alpine Restaurant. Visiting from San Francisco, we looked for a restaurant that not only has an amazing cuisine but also presents with ambiance and service that would make this special meal memorable for us. Alpine Restaurant greeted us with warmth and personal attention that allowed us to enjoy the ambiance and each others' company while tasting professionally executed flavors that left us speechless. Thank you Alpine Restaurant for making us feel right at home.
