Crow's Nest - Hotel Captain Cook Ratings and Reviews
Crows best is usually on point, somethin ...
Crows best is usually on point, something was off tonight. The steak was tough and the venison filet was served whole, overcooked and difficult to cut with the serrated butter knife (not sure if they have real steak knives). We were dissappionted in our meals and the fact that each entree was $44. For that price, each meal has to be special.
The Caesar salad needs more garlic and less anchovy. Crab cakes were awesome, so was the ambiance and the view.
We are locals so they will definately get another chance.

My husband and I went there for our 2nd wedding anniversary in August. They were so great! There was a card on our decorated table saying congratulations on years of marriage! I'd never gotten anything like that from a restaurant so it was such a nice touch. They were busy, so they made sure we knew they would take a while -- and after being the restaurant industry for over 6 years I thought that was very considerate and professional to let the guests know they would take their time. We didn't even notice because we enjoyed the view! Great wine list and seafood! Definitely coming back.

The entire meal was much more than I expected. Starting with warm fois gras served with a dusting of pistachio and onion confit. A roasted marrow bone large enough to serve two then bouliabase and local sea scallops. We shared a terrific Meyer lemon tart. Service was first rate

My wife and I are semi familiar with fine dining, but we decided to try the Crows Nest for the first time on our anniversary. Needless to say, it was a bust. Most fine dining, you pay more for less, but delicious portions. Our meal was even less than described, and tasted god awful to boot. Fancy names and price tags, but when the food was delivered, we were far from impressed. I will not be visiting, or recommending this restaurant any time in the near future.

Great view and ambiance. We come here for special occasions but this visit was a disappointment in terms of the quality of the food. Maybe it was an off night. That said, I'm pretty sure I was served the wrong dish and rather than confirm, I was told it was the right one. We are local Anchorageites and we know fish........

Superior food, super service, pleasant ambience, full bar service. The staff is always friendly and willing to accommodate. There is a note of elegance about the service and food presentation. My entrée was scallops and they were done to perfection, hot and well presented. The overall experience was relaxing and well worth the tariff.

The crows nest was recommended to us because my husband is military and wanted to do something special for when my parents came into town. The service was ok, nothing spectacular. The menu was not very clear, we ordered crab legs and a steak both ranging around the $60 tag. Nothing came with the meal except they dropped off one roll of bread for each person and brought out a very small "appetizer" that they didn't ask you if you wanted, ours was salmon. So me being 36 weeks pregnant cannot eat uncooked salmon, my husband has a allergy and my mother does not like salmon. Upon noticing no one ate it there was no offer of anything different. Then the entrees came out, 58 dollars for 6 crab legs and four pieces of broccoli, or the other option was a small portion of potatoes. Very disappointed in the price per serving. Seeing as we've eaten at less well known Resturants in anchorage and had better experiences.

The food was spectacular. The service impeccable. 5 of us enjoyed oysters a delicious crab cake a soup a beet salad and entrées included halibut scallops salmon each one more delicious than the other. The presentation and accompaniments magnificent. This was definitely the best meal we had in Anchorage and more than comprable to best meals in Los Angeles and Chicago. And the price was not outrageous. Can't encourage others enough to go here

This was my second time to Crow's Nest. Again, I found the menu pretentious and the food disappointing. My steak was excellent but broccolini was heavy in oil. Crab cake and salad were mediocre. I wouldn't chose to go back.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Crow's Nest. The staff had a congratulations note waiting at our table. The view was spectacular, the service stellar, and the food wonderful. In all it was a perfect evening.

We had altogether two appetizers and two entrees. The appetizer with bone marrow was the best dish of the four. The vegetarian entree would have been better with an additional element to tie everything together. Whipped chevre or something like that would have made it a great dish. The service and the view were excellent.

We saw mixed reviews on Yelp so were a little hesitant but our night was great. Kimberley looked after us well as did Tom the Sommelier. We had fine Australian Riesling with our fish. Food was well prepared and table settings very swish indeed.
View was difficult to enjoy at sunset but once the sun faded, we could roll up the blinds and look out. The hotel is very nice too so you can spend time in the gift shops below.

Outstanding views and ambiance! The food was incredible. We ordered the bone marrow appetizer and it was well worth the extra few minutes wait. It was decadent and creamy with a perfect light crust of subtle and salty cheese. The black cod was among the best pieces of fish I've ever eaten. My wife's scallops were perfectly seared and each of our dishes was presented in the most beautiful manner. The cocktails were skillfully prepared and the wine list is amazing. This is an exquisite restaurant experience in Anchorage that anyone who appreciates fine dining will absolutely enjoy!

Found the food to be unexceptional. From previous reviews we were looking forward to a beautiful view with wonderful food. There must be a better view than where we sat. Overall very disappointed for the overall cost of the meal. The other restaurants in Captain Cook's served much better food.

We haven't been the Crow's Nest in many years because at that time it seemed overpriced and undervalued. Boy has it changed! We had dinner there last week and was very pleasantly surprised. An outstanding menu. I had a great rib steak and my wife had a wonderful King salmon. The wine was great, service was very good, and we were very happy with the overall experience. We will definitely be back.

This is our favorite restaurant to dine in when in Anchorage.The food is wonderful,the views
Are terrific and the people that work there are amazing.Chelsea could not be a better server.Logan also did a great job.Katie is so personable and a great manager.We also enjoyed talking to Alex,the hostess and David and Milosz,the busboys.We left feeling as if we had known all of them before.We ate there 3 times this week.We had everything from King crab to salmon to boar shanks.They were all fabulous.You cannot go wrong here.
I must say that we were disappointed in the food quality given the favorable reviews we had read on Open Table. And the prices were reflective of a top notch restaurant; however, the two salads we had were very average, and the salmon was over cooked notwithstanding our request for it to be medium rare. The service was excellent.
An Excellent Fine Dining Experience
We went to the Crow's Nest to celebrate my wife's birthday. They accommodated my advance seating request. The service was spectacular, expedient and courteous, and our main server was very warm and attentive. The meal itself was exceptional, ever course a wonderful blend of flavors, prepared with skill. We love this establishment for special occasions. They never disappoint.

The crab legs were amazing!! They cut them open for you so there is no mess! They are huge and it was too much food for me to eat. I also ordered the Brussel sprouts that were grilled and seasoned lightly to perfection. The mashed potatoes were alright. View was good and it was quiet enough to talk.
