Although we enjoyed the atmosphere and the quietness I was very disappointed in the food. The steak was cooked good but not much for a side. The Alaska Seafood Paella was very dry.

Very nice setting. The host seated us right next to a group of 4 and 9 (in a confined section of the restaurant). I couldn't hear the waiter or my wife speaking because of the neighboring groups. I requested to be moved to a more quiet setting because we were celebrating our babymoon. The server moved us to another area and continued to check on us throughout the evening. It was prefect.

The view is spectacular, the wine list extensive and the food incredible. Everything we tried was excellent. The one thing that I did not like was the new team policy that you have to have a reservation or pay $30 per person to ride the tram to the restaurant. That makes it ridiculous to just ride up for drinks and dessert.

We had the filet and found it to be average, nothing special, however, it was cooked perfectly to order. The entree came with broccoli which was done right, and a multi-layered concoction of mashed potatoes and sliced fried potatoes. A simple baked potato would have been a far better choice.

Service was excellent, and the ambiance was what only Seven Glaciers can offer.

The food was very good and in good portions. I had been warned that the dishes were not very big. I was very surprised at the size when delivered. Also my wife and I don't get out of our comfort zones but we tried some new dishes and we were very happy when we finished.

Woman who seated us was very rude after asking if we had reserved a table. Food was overpriced for practically nothing and some of the items on our tray seemed like they’d been sitting out for a long time. Very disappointing.

We had a fantastic experience at Seven Glaciers - excellent service, excellent food, and excellent atmosphere! We highly recommend asking for your server to be Christopher (or I believe he also goes by Chris B. as there are multiple servers by the name of Chris there)! Even though he is newer to Seven Glaciers he was extremely knowledgeable and had great recommendations. The amazing dining experience we had was largely thanks to Christopher’s service. Thank you!!

The views are 👌🏼👌🏼 you get a free tram ride if you have a reservation to seven glaciers. Pricey but worth it. We have a lunch and a dinner scheduled here during our week stay at Alyeska. We ordered what our server recommended. Scallop bisque and crab cakes. My husband got the crab legs and I got a petite steak for our kids with veggies and butter noodles. It was the perfect amount of food and a little bit of everything for us all. Loved the vegetables that came with the steak. Service was exceptional from the hostess to our server and the food runners and bussers. We are coming back later this week for dinner. I recommend booking before you come we booked whatever was available

We went for lunch. Be prepared to ride on the tram with a lot of people covered in snow and in snow gear. Also will take some time. The view is beautiful if you can see it on your way up. Luckily the way down was less busy so we could enjoy the view. I ordered salmon with a side of mac and cheese. The mac and cheese was bland but the salmon was tasty. There was a small child that made the ambiance a little less romantic due to noise. Service was ok but there was only one main server that I could see and she was having to deal with a needy table of guests. I expected more from the amount we paid. Maybe dinner is different?

Stunning views overlooking Alyeska. They have some standout dishes (try the bisque!), but we've twice thought the fish of the day could use a little more seasoning.

FYI, they don't seem to answer their phone line, so you won't be able to make last minute requests or changes to your reservation (unless you can do so online). My reservation couldn't be modified, so we couldn't tell the restaurant we were running early, and they weren't too keen to seat us before our reservation time.

I’ve eaten here many times and have enjoyed the food. This occasion was the first time we have ever had to send anything back. Moreover, the menu had way too much pork on it. Lots of the dishes had pork in them even if it wasn’t a pork dish. I was not impressed with the menu. Hopefully this gets fixed.

First came the bread and butter. Both were tasteless. How do you make butter tasteless? Then came our main courses. The bison steak special was tough and the entire dish underwhelming. The bison patty melt was actually a bison burger with an over dry bun and not too tasty. The filet mignon was good, but the rest of the plate was unimpressive. The chef needs to pay attention to the menu and get some feedback from staff.
Speaking of staff, they were great.
On the value question, overpriced bad food is never a good thing.
We are going to wait and see if the new owners get through the learning curve before trying a meal again. Until then, you will see us on the bar side. The cocktails and wine selection is awesome.

We were acknowledged right away, had a beautiful, quiet table that gave us an appropriate level of intimacy without feeling isolated. That’s tricky. We were not rushed and every request was handled quickly and completely. It felt worth the effort to get there & we were completely satisfied. Thank you!

Normally, this restaurant is a 6 out of 5 stars but our dining on Saturday was terrible in every way. The ONLY thing positive about it was the company we were with kept the evening fun. Our server I believe was new, but that's not a good excuse when you're dropping over $1000 on the whole table. We initially ordered two bottles of wine for the table. When folks switched wines, new glasses weren't given - even from red to white! We didn't order any appetizers but we ordered soups and salads and our empty bowls sat there for 30 mins. past when we finished them. Then, our food arrived TWO HOURS after we initially sat down, and after paying $59 for steaks, they were all cooked wrong and most definitely not the high quality beef that we ordered. Again, let me remind you we didn't order appetizers. One friend ordered wine before the dinner showed up and it was brought after dinner was over like it was "no big deal" for being late, we declined the glass. Then, after dinner was over we sat for an additional 20 mins. before we even saw our waitress to ask if we wanted dessert. We all declined because we just wanted to leave because it was so late. We ALSO were celebrating a 40th birthday. Not a single candle was brought. I don't expect a bunch of free things, but on the initial reservation it was noted. Then, when the check was brought, we asked her to split it, which generally is something VERY easy to do. All that was said is "no, but I can run different cards" so we as a group separated out check. Servers at a diner will separate checks for you. Overall, it was just incredibly disappointing to drop this much money and have nearly everything go wrong. We brought 2 couples who hadn't ever been before, and likely won't ever go back. We talked this restaurant up to them and they also were most definitely disappointed. I hope this service will change quickly. It hurts to spend this much money on such a lousy experience. It won't happen again for us.

Wonderful setting, oysters excellent, steak was okay but other items on the plate were tasteless and muted, side of crab leg cold and questionable quality, bisque could have been canned but single scallop made the dish, braised pork was cold and fatty more fitting for barbecue, wine was a 2004 not handled very well be the server she knew nothing about the wine which was expectedly heavily sentiments and should have been decanted, dessert was requested to go and was dumped into large boxes and ice cream placed in a very small (2 table spoons) without a lid and the server called it “a ice cream shot.” I have been here a number of times and this was the most disappointing experience I have ever had.

Service was below average: inattentive, distracted, uninterested. The first cup of coffee was not fresh and I asked for a fresh cup. The second cup was cold and did not bother to ask if it was better than the first cup. My entree was halibut which was overcooked but we were not asked about the quality of our food.

Always happy when we dine here. The service was very good, as usual. The food was great, also as usual. We didn't follow the menu too well, but did get what we wanted in the order we wanted it. No problem. The view was wonderful. "Pretty" food like this came in decent portions, and we enjoyed dinner and conversation so much; were so filled we had to forgo dessert, although the desserts on other tables were beautiful confections--I caught one lady taking a photo!
