    Wonderful dining experience. The almond crusted halibut and filet mignon were delicious. We enjoyed our salads, caprese and Greek. Also, the yummy desserts. All the staff were very friendly. It was a great place to celebrate our anniversary.

    From the moment we were greeted and quickly seated, the entire experience was wonderful! After a couple fresh oysters, we each enjoy the house salad. My entre was the double cut pork chop and my husband had the duck breast. Both were delicious!

    We had the special. The meat needed to be cot better. Large chunks we’re attached to other large chunks. The noodles undercooked and the sauce bland. Disappointing at best. Suggestion… if you offer bacon covered dates, serve 6 so no one has to fight over the last one. Over priced and disappointing. I’ve waited 20 years to go in to Kinleys. I won’t come back. Sorry

    One of the best meals EVER! Husband and I shared bacon wrapped dates- delicious! My entree was halibut cheeks, risotto and vegetables and husband had almond crusted halibut, rice and vegetables. Our server, Kristi, recommended their chocolate dessert- both delicious and beautiful! Wish I had taken pictures. Great service, great food in a beautiful restaurant. Highly recommend.

    We love Kinley’s and this experience justified our feelings once again. The only thing that didn’t go as requested, and maybe I wasn’t clear when ordering, was that I wanted our appetizers (we ordered several) to come out one at a time instead of all at once. Other than that, everything was great!

    Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable about menu. We had Alaskan oysters, Kodiak scallop special and the pecan crusted halibut. Everything was fresh and prepared to perfection! Cocktails and wine list were great! Good beer selection. Love the Oosik beer tap! We sat at a high top in the bar. Overall great food, great service and a great time with an old friend visiting Anchorage requesting a seafood dinner. Thank you!

    Have some friends up from Canada and fatter a days’ excursion wanted somewhere we know to be reliably good. Unfortunately our guests thought that his dish was overly salty but when mentioned to the waitress she said the kitchen could be a bit heavy handed with the salt and she’d mention it to them. Not really the response appropriate in my view. The wine ordered wasn’t available although it was the most expensive white in the list, a chilled bottle wasn’t available. Bit sloppy overall which was a disappointment but my fish and chips was delicious, so some pints scored. Nice cocktails and still better than a lot of places in Anchorage.

    The food was great and the service was good. I was a little disappointed in that I indicated we'd be celebrating our anniversary when I made the reservation, but nothing about that was mentioned during our visit. A simple "Happy Anniversary" would have been nice.

    Excellent restaurant. Luckily I made reservations 2 months in advance. The couple ahead of us at the door had to be turned away, because it was fully booked. We tried to book right before leaving, for 5:30 on a Tuesday and there was no availability. The food was excellent. Salmon is a common dish, and I had it three times in Alaska, but this dish was fantastic. Others had the halibut and rockfish and loved them. Service was great. We went early, so it was quiet. A young child at the table next to us did well up until their meal was over, so no issue there. We stayed at Embassy Suites and were able to walk to the restaurant easily.
