Service and food were spectacular. The staff worked in harmony to provide a seamless experience. We enjoyed a special daily appetizer of smoked salmon, pickled onions, capers and aioli. Then I had the Veal medallions with brie and my husband had the roast duck. Both were marvelous and perfectly executed. Both dishes featured tender meat, appropriate sauce, a starch and al dente vegetables. Small menu with options for all palates. We will be back!

Note: only beer and wine but an extensive list of both.

Server was very good, food was good but the scallops were tough. It is very loud there not enjoyable for the cost of the meal. The desserts are not worth it. Most likely will never go back.

Love this place! By far one of the best in Anchorage! Staff is always friendly and helpful with recommendations, specials and standard meals are delicious. Wait time to receive entrees can be the only downside. Great place!

The dinner we had at Southside Bistro was the best dinner we had in Alaska during our entire stay (11 days). The food was absolutely delicious - we can highly recommend the King Salmon and Pork Schnitzel. We shared a Peach/Raspberry Cobbler for dessert which had a very impressive presentation. Our waitress was also excellent. She had several tables to wait on and never missed a beat. Unfortunately I don't remember her name but on our receipt it has Clerk: 1187. We were there on Tuesday, July 23rd at 6:30 pm. The restaurant was a little noisy but otherwise clean and comfortable. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We love Southside Bistro for anniversaries. We discovered it for the first time with our 20th anniversary and came back for our 23rd. Funny thing was, we realized that we had the exact same waiter, THANK YOU RYAN, and when we looked backed at past pictures realized, we has ordered the same delicious dish from 3 years prior. It just doesn't get any better than this. Our water glass was always full....thank you. They treat you with first class hospitality there. You won't be disappointed. Highly recommend it for a memorable night.

We were there for the last night of a visit to see my daughter. Absolutely one of the best meals ever. The freshest king salmon was perfectly prepared, seared on the outside, moist and tender. The chef seemed to respect the fish. He enhanced with choice of sides and avocado as background. But clearly let that fish be the “star”.
Mussels and pasta were also outstanding.
Can’t wait to go back on each trip!

Each of us had one of the featured specials. 3 for 3 in “outstanding” remarks. The stripe shrimp were so good and prepared perfectly as was the King salmon and scallops. Really good wine recommendation as well. Attentive server and efficient staff working well together to serve us well.
