This restaurant never disappoints. The service is always spot on and the food and the pacing are exactly what you want when you dine out. My wife and I have always enjoyed splitting the Bistro burger medium rare and they get it right. The pasta is killer good and the mahi mahi was cooked perfectly. Ask for Linda for your server. She is a delight.

We came here for our anniversary, and the staff immediately wished us Happy Anniversary upon arrival and throughout the meal. Staff was accommodating, but not too attentive. Food was lovely, portions were a little big for me, but I’m not a big eater in general. Excellent and extensive wine list with knowledgeable staff. Felt very comfortable and clean.

Southside bistro is awesome.. the overreaching mandates from the mayor with closing the bar, having less patrons permitted and having masks on servers made the experience from the staff a less friendly experience. I have always enjoyed Southside as a friendly welcome.. the energy had shifted due the mandates with masks and distance

Southside Bistro is a great place to take friends and family. They have a beautiful dining with with a great atmosphere, or if you want a little more casual atmosphere you can seat on the bar side, which is very relaxing. They have done a great job of distancing us. We felt very safe.
The food as always was wonderful. I suggest you give the Butter-leaf salad a try. One of my favorites.

Went here for my brother in-law’s birthday dinner. Calamari was some of the best I’ve had. It was cooked perfectly and was very light for being fried. I highly recommend the skirt steak. Wait staff was very friendly. All the deserts we tried were very tasty. If you’re looking for some different perspectives on American classics Southside Bistro is the place for you.

Southside Bistro has been a favorite of ours for years. I consider it the best restaurant in Anchorage. The latest experience was outstanding, as always. Southside was practicing ten foot social distancing when we were there last week, and their staff was all masked. Overkill, in my opinion, but I'm sure their were guests who appreciated their concern. Anyway, I had perfectly cooked fresh King Salmon, my spouse had rack of lamb. They had a nice Sauvignon Blanc specially priced by the glass, and an excellent Pinot Noir also specially priced. They were exceptional values, and we enjoyed both. Southside Bistro is a $$$ restaurant, and worth every penny.
