Overall, excellent! The food was very good and it wasn't too loud. Only two complaints: the main meals took a very long time to arrive and the container of olive oil and the dish it sat on at the table were both covered in oil and obviously hadn't been cleaned in awhile. However, these definitely won't stop me from planning to go back!
Rockfish special was amazing & service was exceptional as always
We went on Saturday to celebrate Fathers Day since I waited to long and the restaurant was booked on Sunday night. When I reserved on OpenTable I had mentioned I hoped their was a vegan option since a guest of ours that night was vegan. She doesn't like a lot of hoopla around being vegan but when the waitress greeted us she explained that the chef had a special vegan entree thought up for her. She loved it. They were able to easily alter a salad and even a dessert for her. From the start they were prepared and it showed the level of committment this restaurant has. This restaurant is a MUST for us.
Scallop app with the saffron sauce was amazing, salmon and halibut dish was excellent.
Food and service is excellent.
Wonderful local spot, excellent service, easy to order something tasty and we'll prepared
Excellent food and service was very good too (Thomas).
Can't go wrong with their specials - always top notch
Super job on the local shrimp - properly cooked and tender. Super job on the halibut as well - it came to the table hot and delicious.
Best Seafood in town. Great staff and outstanding wine selection. Never had nightly special that I did not like.
Great as usual! Really enjoyed the wine selection!
The perfect place to celebrate a birthday with friends.
My wife and I eat here all the time and this trip was as good as it always is. The fish specials are always amazing and the wine selection is unbeatable. Best service in town, hands down.
Great food with great wine and our server made a great suggestion when ordering wine.
Excellent service, typically and dependably good food.
As always, a wonderful experience. We have been visiting this restaurant regularly for 20 years and have never been disappointed. The food is always fresh and creative, the service is impeccable and the atmosphere is relaxing. Well done!
The food is always amazing and the staff are true gems! Highly recommend!
Great atmosphere, great food and great service. A perfect spot for a special occasion with a love one or with friends. Definitely, one of our best fine dining restaurants here in Anchorage, Alaska! Can't wait for our next visit.
It was an unexpected surprise, I thought I had made reservations for another restaurant, I was wrong but I was very happy. Normally 5 stars, but the schnitzel was deep fried, at least tasted like it and it was covered in batter and not breaded, there is a difference. I loved it anyway!
Southside Bistro is rapidly becoming our favorite restaurant in Anchorage. We've been coming here more often, and it just gets better and better. Creative dishes-- the blue cheese custard appetizer is amazing! Nightly specials. Excellent service. Love it!
Excellent as usual...it was the first time for our friends and they were very impressed
Consistently great food. One of the few restaurants with a truly professional service staff. Everything we wanted for a memorable bday celebration.
Outstanding menu and service. Wine pours seemed a little light.
Awesome, as always. I recommend SSB to all my friends, and it is my first choice for a special evening whatever the occasion.
We enjoyed the service, company and food, but the noise level was amazingly high which made it almost impossible to carry on a conversation, even with the person sitting next to me.
We are regulars at the Bistro. As always, it had a great atmosphere, with delicious food and great service!
Great meals and good service. We always enjoy our visits to the Bistro---thanks!
Once again Southside Bistro didn't disappoint. We had enough time between courses to casually eat and talk without the risk of interfering with the next course. Food was cooked to perfection. We had a great time!
Good appetizers, entrees, extensive wine list. Excellent customer service. Will definitely go there again!
Appetizer of mussels was really good., wine good, service good.
Main course .. not so good.
Steak was too raw and vegetables were not cooked at all.
First time there. Service was excellent. The ambience is lively and a great place to get together with friends. Food is top notch with every element exhibiting highest quality. Service was prompt without being pushy. Given the excellent experience, the prices were well below what I would expect for this top notch meal. Definitely a return visit in the future.
Nicest restaurant in anchorage
Always a good choice. They changed their menu up a bit, so that was a nice surprise; however, my husband's rib eye looked more like a steak you might get at a diner as "steak and eggs" as opposed to being from a nicer restaurant. My halibut special was good, but I wondered where the rest of my meal was at $36. Food was good, service was excellent, but felt like we overpaid.
Birthday dinner. Very memorable. Good food, great service.
Southside Bistro never disappoints. The food is always good as is the wine list. It is a comfortable place to eat - not to loud and fine to have a good laugh with your friends without upsetting anyone. This is a place to take your parents, or your spouse or a date or to meet your friends. Totally worthy, just wish they were still open for lunch.
Food was perfect and great service.
As always, the service was prompt and the food delicious. I definitely recommend the grilled tiger prawns and scallops entree. Everyone was also very jealous of my chevre salad, which was fresh and wonderful, with warm pine nut crusted goat cheese, olives, red peppers and cucumbers.
I forgot that the bar does not serve liquor, only beer and wine (which is all my husband and I ever order anyway); so unfortunately, one of our friends was disappointed not to be able to order a gin and tonic - he did say that he enjoyed the Chuli Stout that our server recommended, on tap.
This is one of the nicest restaurants in Anchorage. Have been there a number of times and the quality is always high. Highly recommend.
