Crow's Nest - Hotel Captain Cook Ratings and Reviews
It was my birthday dinner, the atmosphere is wonderful, a beautiful sunset for the evening I called ahead and asked if they had tenderloin steaks on the menu , And said they did not they did however indicated they had New York steaks as well as a prime rib ribeye steak, we love a good steak , So we ordered the ribeye , Upon receiving our meals both my wife and my own steak cooked well, but full of marbling and gristle , To the point my wife could not eat her steak, I'm not one to make a scene, and in all my years eating out at restaurants I am now prompted to leave this review, I called the following day to inform management about our experience my phone call was not received well. I was told the manager would call us back his name is Tom Laurent to this day still haven't had a call back
The Crow's Nest continues to be one of the best restaurants in Anchorage -- and there are many great ones here. The menu items are creative, and the portions are just right. For the vegans in our group, there was just one option, but the vegetarians enjoyed several fish/shellfish choices. There's an amazing wine selection by the bottle and a respectable wine-by-the-glass selection. We have dined there before, and we'll surely return.
I reserved a table for 4 at the Crow's Nest because my son once worked as the Manager there almost 20 years ago and my grandson and granddaughter (his now adult children) who live out of state now had never been there. The Crow's Nest has always been my premium choice for special occasions, especially during the spring, summer and fall when daylight allows an awesome 360 degree sweeping view for hundreds of miles. We actually arrived a little early and were promptly seated by the Hostess in the South East Alcove at my favorite table. The service was very good, the food excellent and the ambience was great. It is a tad expensive for many people but well worth the extra expense for special occasions. It was a relaxing experience and we were never rushed and after dessert we left after spending 2 & 1/2 delightful hours there.
Awesome experience as always. We asked for a private room for 6 which we have had before. A corner room views from all sides, food service and atmosphere were amazing. There’s so much history in this place you can feel it when you walk in, everyone who has been anyone in the state has likely been here at one time or another to broker a deal or just for the awesome banana split at the end of an evening somewhere else. This is my favorite place in anchorage and they never disappoint.
Was very unhappy with the server, Francisca. She informed our guest that if he didn't remove his hat that she invited him to the lounge. She did not apologize nor did she say whether or not we could also order off of the menu in the lounge. From the point that our guest said he did not want to remove his hat she became very unfriendly even though we tried to lighten things up with her. She continued to be unfriendly and unhelpful. For example, when she served the bananas foster she prepared the dessert at a slant and the whole party could not see the presentation. The gal that replenished our water (Tasha) was much more friendly and happy to take the time to explain the dessert menu to us. Because of service given I would not only not return but I would certainly not recommend the Crow's Nest to anyone. As I am sure is the same feeling with all guest at this table.
Our experience was outstanding overall: the appetizers and entrees were some of the best we have ever had, the desserts impressive, the wine selection (or rather collection) magnificent. The service was friendly and attentive, formal but not snobbish. We were quite impressed. Of course, the prices were high, but we got what we paid for. Thanks!
Wine and drinks were good Caesar salad was not what I expected. Minimal dressing on a romaine stalk with 3 croutons and 3 halves of cherry tomatoes ( which were out of place) on a Caesar. Entree- Halibut was nicely seared. Sauce was not flavorful. Desert of a Lemon tart was still frozen in the middle, very disappointing. Ambiance exceptional and service was good.
