Crow's Nest - Hotel Captain Cook Ratings and Reviews
Arrived at this restaurant the previous night for a cocktail and cheese playter. Service was friendly, prompt and courteous. Enjoyed it and decided to bring a larger group for dinner the next night. Our waiter, Logan, and his colleagues were locals who knew their menu, explained the entrees as needed and provided excellent service. Very attentive but not overbearing. The bananas foster, prepared tableside, for dessert capped an excellent evening. The view of the city, mountains, and bay certainly helped with the conversation. Fabulous Halibut!
Great food and service! My only wish is for the menu to change more often. I hope they come up with new appetizers and entrees as we dine here often and I'm wanting to experience something different. The reason why we keep on coming back is their wine selection. There are only a few restaurants in Anchorage that offer a wide selection of red Burgundy, which is a must for a special occasion.
After having not been to the Crow's Nest for over ten years, it was gratifying to see that this landmark Anchorage restaurant is still a quality, elegant evening dinner destination. My halibut was moist, flavorful and cooked to the right temperature and texture. One of my guests boasted about her vegetarian dish being well prepared and tasty. The view from almost anywhere in the restaurant is spectacular (not downtown Anchorage, but the mountains in the distance). For that reason the ambiance of the decor inside makes little difference, but if this was in the dark of winter and the outside presented no view, the somewhat dark and dismal interior with its dark woods and heavy walls, furniture and fixtures could be sobering. Actually, the whole hotel could be lightened up a bit. It is probably one of the four or five most expensive restaurants in Anchorage. Still, all things considered, Crow's Nest makes a good impression on your guests and worth the price.
We've always enjoyed Crows Nest as a special occasion restaurant. We were there 3 weeks ago and had honestly forgotten how good it was. However they fell short tonight. We found a lady bug, as well as another bug in our Caesar Salad, and I ordered the $67 dollar Bison Ribeye that the Chef recommended medium temperature, and I got a well done steak. I hope this was just a night "off", however at that price point I feel a night off is unacceptable. However, I will eat there again and would recommend it to anyone celebrating a special occasion.
It was nice to go to a quality restaurant and find the service was prompt and friendly, food was well crafted, quality wine and drink list, conversational ambiance, beautiful 360 view of city, and dress code was appreciated-made for a delightful special occasion celebration. Restaurant tops-literally and figuratively!
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.
