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!

Great view of glaciers and Turnagain Arm. The food was very good but the edges of creativity were possibly pushed a bit beyond the capability of the kitchen.

We had a wonderful dinner for our anniversary. The scallop bisque is quite good and the duck was wonderful. My wife had a special salad that featured different ways of serving beets -- amazing. She then had a scallop appetizer dish that was also wonderful. The Baked Alyeska for dessert was also excellent.

We made reservations 7 months in advance and were given the worst table in the restaurant. We were moved to a slightly better table when asked. When my wife’s meal came, it did not come with the vegetables noted in the description which she was really looking forward to. When we questioned the waitress about it, her attitude turned cold and did not offer any options or even apologize.
Additionally, my “Wagyu” New York steak was no better than a Costco prime cut. I’ve had Wagyu and Kobe. This was neither.
The duck was not cooked correctly either. The fat was chewy and the skin was not crispy at all.

The Scallop bisque was phenomenal as was the halibut.

We will not be returning or recommending

Can’t beat the scenery! Food was excellent as well as the service. We had a party of 4 - four generations of women ranging in age from 7 to 81 years old. We had the filet, scallops appetizer, salmon, Mac and cheese, cocktails, wine, baked aleska, sorbet, gf carrot cake. Wonderful experience.

Completely overrated. We were on a cruise/land package and were looking forward to a great dinner—- very disappointed. Started with a cold reception from front desk, poor service, forgot an entire, salmon and halibut was average at best, steak was very good. Another couple on our tour had a worse experience than us ——👇

Beautiful views, comfortable and elegant atmosphere. Great for a special date night. Went here on a Labor Day vacation with my honey. Spectacular food. The Scallop Bisque is as good as they say it is. The fish was amazing as well. Had a special anniversary dessert brought out for us-- a Baked Alyeska-- amazing! Service was excellent and staff was very well versed on the menu and the wine. Would definitely go back!

It was our anniversary. I requested a window table and they delivered! I was also late and missed the tram for my reservation. They let it slide and bumped us to 9:45 instead! The staff really went out of their way to make our night one to remember for a long time. Thank you! P.s. I think the prices were a little high, but still worth every penny because of the staff, view, and the ambience of the room itself coupled with an exciting and fun ride up the tram. Definitely will be coming back when it’s daylight for a full experience of the view!

Our second visit. For whatever reason, patrons here like to eavesdrop. While our table was enjoying table talk, again as I looked around I noticed others eating and listening.
I attribute some of this to the lack of spacing, lack of ambient music, and probably, lack of libations for some.
The food is well prepared and served at correct temperatures. Our server seemed out of her league a bit with awkward banter. I recommend Chef Special of the Day. Overall great getaway restaurant. $312.00 for dinner & drinks for four.

Felt a bit rushed. Views not that great. Service was good but more like a chili's where about turn and burn, not enjoy your dinner and views. Food was excellent.
As mentioned felt like more an olive garden than a fine dining restaurant. Possibly due to tram schedule. Professional but processed

Arrived 30 min for a reservation , hostess was semi-rude
Got sat 20 min after reservation time
Waiter was super nice but forgot our drink order , thought we would be happy just drinking water , then had to ask if we could order our main course , because it was assumed we only wanted the appetizer ??

Was offered free desert due to all the mix up , honestly food was kinda of second rate , the deserts had no flavor ... and very small portions .... the atmosphere and views are amazing .... the service was worst then a McDonald’s but dam the Mountain View’s were amazing .... not sure what was going on this night but food and service was basically non-existent

I didn’t even mention the fly on my plate to the staff... it just seemed they couldn’t get anything right that night but dam love the amazing atmosphere

Excellent food and wine. We shared a cheese plate and both of us had duck for entree, which was served pink and was beautifully cooked. We enjoyed a bottle of Pouilly Fume wine from Robert Moldavi , Napa Valley. Knowledgeable and helpful waiters. Friendly Service without being intrusive. View from the restaurant can be spectacular, but the evening we were there, the mist was swirling around and we were able to see only one of the glaciers.

Food was exquisite. Service was 4/5, not because there was anything wrong or bad, but because a 5/5 is "blown away" status, extremely attentive, whereas the service here was "quite good". Portions were pretty small. Not that you expect huge portions at a high-end restaurant, but with an appetizer, splitting a soup, and an entree, one shouldn't come away feeling still hungry. The scallop appetizer, for instance, was 2 scallops. For almost $20, I was expecting 4 or 6 at least. But overall, this place always delivers, even when the view doesn't (it was socked in the clouds).

We celebrated our anniversary with dinner at 7 Glaciers. Restaurant has beautiful ambiance, views, comfortable tables, and is quiet. The staff are friendly and attentive. Wine list is extensive with a wines by the glass that were affordable as well as some very high end wines. We both enjoyed the crab cake appetizer, and my husband really liked his pan seared halibut dish. Two minor critiques: (1) Salad choices were limited to kale. It tasted fine, but wished there was another choice. (2) The special our server described did not match what was served, nor did it match how the person delivering it to the table (not our server) described it when he set it down in front of me. She described a fettucine dish with king salmon, halibut, and spot prawns... (the person delivering it to the table said fettucine with silver salmon and lobster). What I received was a pesto fettucine dish, with a smallish piece of king salmon (less than 4 oz?) on top. I searched to find other seafood, and located 1 small piece of prawn buried under the fettucine. Mixed into the pesto sauce were some minced bits of something... (would they have minced up spot prawns? Or maybe it was minced lobster?) I didn't find any halibut. The fettucine and sauce were delicious, I ate every bit of it, but the limited seafood in the dish was disappointing after hearing that fantastic description. Dessert was baked Alaska, which we enjoyed very much. All in all, a very nice dinner.
