Aerie Restaurant & Lounge Ratings and Reviews
Spent an enchanting evening dinning for our birthday weekend. She had a salmon dish with some veggies that she thought were a little on the bland side, however the salmon was terrific. I had a pork tenderloin dish that was amazing . The service was great, i was told they were out of an additive for a mixed drink I wanted, and low and behold they found some after me being disappointed.. I didn't ask, but so thankful!
I recently celebrated my birthday with my family at Aerie. The view was breathtaking. We could see the whole East Bay as well as watch golfers finishing up several holes of golf. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable. The food was excellent and the wait time was minimal. We will definitely be returning for many more evenings.
An experience!!! What else can you say when you are dining on the 16th floor overlooking the majestic wine region on Northern Michigan....from the lobster bisque to the filet, mussels in vine tomato broth to the spectacular dessert, this is definitely a hidden gem, which no one talks about. Up your experience further by booking a room at the Grand Traverse Resort - whose tower houses Aerie - and take the 2 min shuttle to the beach post dinner. Heaven!
First of all we waited 5 mins just to be greeted at the door and another 15 before we were seated, despite showing up on time. Next we met our waiter but didn't see him again for 20 minutes before he took our drink order. The service was not very attentive and slow. It took a while for our first two courses and the main dishes to arrive. The salmon was seared on one side and actually raw on the other. The bronzini that my date had was actually cold on one said. It took some time but eventually we were able to flag the waiter and point this out. He took our partially eaten dishes away and we chose not to replace them. Eventually the manager came over and checked in. I pointed out that this was my date's Bday and he offered dessert on the house to make up for the dinner. However, when the check arrived it was still on my bill. Considering we had two entres at $30 each that were not edible, which we ended up paying for, an $8 dessert didn't seem like much of an offset. The $8 was eventually removed from the bill. We were one of the last to leave the restaurant and didn't see anyone nor receive an apology as we exited the restaurant. Over a $200 bill for two with poor inattentive service and inedible food. Not a good value!
Braised beef was burnt. The rest of the meal was subpar, with the exception of the French fries which were fantastic. Also, we ordered a bottle of wine and found it was out of stock except for an open bottle. Glasses of the open bottle were not offered which was something we would expect at a restaurant in this price range.
The service was nice. Keeping in mind it was a buffet so there wasn't much for the server to do. The buffet itself was not good. The waffles were hard and the selection wasn't great. There were only 4 items offered for the main meal. And finally, I was most disappointed with the dessert area. Everything contained bananas...or coffee flavor. Yuck! I'm a big dessert fan, and this was not pleasant. Overall, it was not the best experience for a Mother's Day meal.
WE WERE VERY DISAPPOINTED. THE FISH WAS DRY AND TASTELESS. OUR WATER GLASSES WERE NEVER REFILLED. OUR WINE GLASSES WERE NEVER REFILLED. OUR MAIN COURSE WAS SERVED WITHOUT SILVERWARE (WE HAD TO ASK THE WAITRESS BECAUSE SHE DIDN'T NOTICE). WE , A GROUP OF SENIOR CITIZENS, WERE ADDRESSED AS "YOU GUYS". THOUGH WE LIVE IN THE AREA, WE HAVE NO DESIRE TO RETURN YO THIS REASTURANT.
First time we visited this restaurant and were amazed at the view. Booth or table makes no difference...recommend table by the outside window. We went for Easter Brunch which more than meet our expectations with a fine selection of well prepared brunch items. Service was friendly and attentive! They also provided a special "kid height" buffet which was great and the dessert table was a nice end to a fine meal. We'll be back.
This was my third time having brunch here and my husbands first. It was great as usual. A beautiful view, wonderful food and (almost) everybody is so friendly. Unfortunately the server we had I have had the misfortune to have before. He is not very friendly, he isn't very good about filling coffee or checking to see if you need another drink, the bill or whatever. Everybody is having the brunch buffet so the servers job isn't too difficult I wouldn't think. It seems like most of the other servers are much more attentive and friendly.
The view is outstanding. Going in the off season is great for locals. I was disappointed in how very few gluten free options there were. The only thing I could eat were an omelette, fruit/salad, sausage/bacon and golumki. I wish you had a carving station so I could at least get some protein from that. There are some gluten free desserts available but you need to grab them fast because for some reason they seem to go fast. Maybe if there was a shelf labeled gluten free not everyone would take them. I think people just don't know they're gluten free and get them because they are so good.
Excellent food. Service amazing because all were pleasant, filed up the buffet and it WAS BUSY for St. Patrick's Sunday Brunch. Better yet we had 2 for one and it their brunch includes your choice of juice, Mimosa or coffee/tea.
Had a nice Sunday brunch with the family. Food was tasty, service was nice, they were quick to clean off the plates encouraging us to go for the next round. It did take a little more time for them to clear the plates after they presented the check.
There were a lot of families with small children, as well various groups of friends and couples - so this had a little something for everyone.
We went during restaurant week and chose off the special course offerings. Would have thought they might prepare their best meals for this event, but we all had different meals and the only item that passed was the tenderloin but not the rest of that entry. Noodles were tough and dry on the pasta entry, biscotti was boring and very small, salad/risotto was bland and desert was flavorless. Wait staff was very good and attentive however.
Our experience was fantastic, we had a great server who provided excellent service. Everything about the place is first class; the food was very good from the appetizers to the Filet. We will definitely be back in the future.
Great Valentines Celebration with my wife! Wait staff was excellent...took our picture, which was nice. I wish I would have made the reservations earlier so we could have watched the sunset...the dark windows at night give almost no point of reference to the landscape/views, which is really the selling feature of the 16th floor in TC. Food was great - steak was excellent!
Went for the Christmas nite buffet. Food was cold and the servers actually told us to hurry as they were shutting down the buffet.....10 min after we sat down. Know its Christmas and people want out but not really the patrons fault or issue. Very poor value for $250
Service was very good. Seated 5 minutes after reservation at requested window table. Food was of better quality than the last time we were here for the buffet 3 years ago. Also refreshing to see more people dressed for the occasion and type of restaurant. If you're going to show up to to this kind of place for Christmas dinner in jeans and a t-shirt, is it a lot to ask to take off the dirty trucker hat?
Christmas Buffet was spectacular. Visually appealing as well as the best
variety and quality of food. From the salmon, shrimp, mussels, whitefish pate to the carved
sirloin, delicious ham, and turkey. Their potatoes are fantastic, and the squash soup
is a must. Great salad selection also. The desert section had something for
everyone. Some of the staff is a little unprofessional, a little giggly without
a good knowledge of their customer or the food, but all in all it was a great experience.
Our dining experience at Aerie was fantastic! Our server Jenny was very personable and professional and did a great job as our waitress. The food was outstanding, from the salad to dessert. The filet was easily one of the best steaks I've ever had, and the homemade desserts capped off a great meal. Very impressed!
