I have been to all the "best" restaurants in Anchorage, I am a long time user of Tripadvisor and have been using Open Table for over five years. I read a lot of reviews, good and bad before I decide to go to a new place. This is hands down the best restaurant that I have even been to in Alaska. Enough Said...

This place is a hidden gem in South Anchorage. It has an impressive wine and beer list, with both local and import choices. The menu has a bit of everything for every taste: fish, steak, chicken, pasta, etc. The dessert choices are good and there is a good selection of dessert wines. The only 'ding' is the service was a bit slower than I would've liked.

Overall, the food tasted awesome and the atmosphere was nice for a relaxed dining experience. I will be back.

Food was outstanding! We highly recommend the Pork Schnitzel for dinner and the Chocolate Decadence for dessert. The wait staff is attentive, friendly, and very knowledgeable. Thomas knew the cuisine and wine menu like a pro. The atmosphere was upbeat, yet quiet. Both Travis and Jens know how to run a highly successful restaurant and are very attentive to every detail. We HIGHLY recommend this restaurant.

Appetizers, Food, and Deserts were DELICIOUS! Food is always cooked to your individual taste. Our Server was Fantastic - she never kept us waiting and was efficient, courteous and offered suggestions when asked that proved right on when we went with her suggestion regarding wine selection and food choices. We have been with this restaurant for over 10 years and will continue to choose this restaurant for a nice evening out.
