Crow's Nest - Hotel Captain Cook Ratings and Reviews
Beautiful scenic view, but even though I had requested a table with a view when I made our reservations we were directed to a booth away from the window. Since there was no one sitting at any of the window tables I asked to be moved, which they did with no problem. We were immediately turned off by the server referring to the hostess as "my girl" as in "Did my girl offer you a drink or wine?" We were then disappointed when several of the offerings on the menu were not available. They did not have salmon because "the man who catches the salmon didn't go fishing". Really, no salmon in Alaska? And they did not have the banana split because "the man who makes the ice cream didn't come in today." I had Alaska King Crab Bisque (Sherry gelee, bitter greens, with a tiny crab leg medallion) the was tasty, but barely warm. We ended up ordering very good crab cakes for the "Starters" section as our entree because nothing on the limited entree section appealed to us. They did bring us each a delicious chocolate when they brought the bill.
We had family in town for the first time and wanted a special venue that showed off Anchorage. We were seated on the side of the dining room to show off the sunset over the inlet which was very much appreciated by both myself and our family.
As always, the food and service were spectacular.
This is an awesome Fine Dining place. . .the best in Alaska and rivals other fine dining restaurants do the world. I had the foie gras and it was prepared beautifully in the classic French style. The food was put very smartly together and it was a real treat. My prime rib steak was heavenly. My husband had the Alaskan Salmon and it was so delicate. It is obvious that all the food was prepared by a well trained hand. Thank you for a wonderful meal.
We celebrated our anniversary tonight and once again the experience was superb. Crow's Nest is one of our favorite places in Anchorage. We ordered a couple bottles of wine, the aged beef carpaccio, wild boar, and bananas foster. Absolutely everything was delicious! The service was (and always has been) attentive, timely, and friendly. Yes, it is pricy, but it is well worth it! It is so wonderful to be pampered every once in awhile.
Another great evening at the Crow's Nest. The wine, cocktails, and service were excellent and the troll-caught king salmon and butternut cheesecake were phenomenal. I would not call this inventive cuisine, but if you want exceptionally good food, wine, and service in the French style, the Crow's Nest can match the best of the best across the U.S. and beyond. The view is a bonus.
We've visited the Crow's Nest on several occasions and they have never disappointed either myself or my guests. The service is exemplary and always the staff is knowledgeable on the cuisine. The views on a clear night is unmatched and for evening dining, Anchorage just sparkles. Quyanna for your continued high standards.
This is our go-to destination for some of the top food in Anchorage - and the gorgeous view from atop Tower 3 of the Captain Cook Hotel is such a great pairing. Each course of our meal was stunning, showing considerable sophistication. The service was great, the setting was intimate, and really, it was one of the best all around meals my wife and I have enjoyed in quite some time. Likely, since the last time we ate here! On another note, we usually partake from their excellent wine cellar, but this time went with cocktails, and they still didn't disappoint. Wow.
I was really expecting so much better quality of food for the most expensive restaurant in Anchorage. We ordered 2 different steaks ( one was a local ribeye and the other was a bone in bison). They were both very tough and hard to cut with our steak knives. The potatoes served with the steak were not anything exciting. The crabby patty appetizer was good and the Banana Foster was great. The service was good. They did ask us how our meal was but we did not want to say anything since we wanted to just enjoy our Anniversary.
I was disappointed with the limited selection of dinner choices. I have a difficult time believing that any fishery would close due to thanksgiving. There was no salmon and no halibut due to the fishermen going home for the holiday. The deer and the boar "escaped" from their pens and were also not available. I went to the Captain Cook the year before (same Saturday before thanksgiving) and there were no issues with items being available.
The food we did choose was wonderful, and I will not hesitate to go back, I just found it odd for such a high end establishment.
