Crow's Nest - Hotel Captain Cook Ratings and Reviews
Crows Nest is the Best
The Crows Nest is certainly the finest of the many wonderful restaurants in Anchorage. The service is excellent, views of the inlet extraordinary and food unique and well-prepared. It is more expensive than other restaurants, but if you are looki8ng for a high quality, intimate meal in secluded surroundings for a special occasion, this is the best choice. We come here once a year or so and are never disappointed.
Everything was great, but our guests and I thought you were slightly over priced by 1/3 or so!

As usual food was excellent and service impeccable. I did not catch her name but our server was perfect; intelligent, attentive without being over bearing and interesting to talk with, especially about the two bottles of $10,000 Petrus which they have in the cellar (No, we were not tempted to try one). A great night.
Awesome experience, great view.

Surprised my daughter by taking her to Crows Nest for her birthday just to have the wait or joke about how spoiled she is for being there!
My Daughters Birthday had to be perfect. Crow's Nest did the job. The perfect table, the perfect meal and a lovely Birthday Plate. The Service was outstanding. Thank You to all those that took part in making My Daughters Birthday everything I wanted it to be.

Really nice dinner. Drinks were mixed perfectly. Everything was cooked correctly. Scenery was nice at the top of the Captain Cook Hotel. We both had a really good time.
My husband and I decided to take some time to enjoy a nice meal with a great view in a nice restaurant. Just to celebrate life. Our server Katie was amazing, her assistant Joseph was very pleasant as well. They made a great time, great service.
Nice for an anniversary
Very nice restaurant for a special occasion. Service is top notch, food is great, and the view is amazing.
hostess mislead me on table traffic surrounding
not happy with bad information about noise level and traffic in proximity of my table
We had an amazing time at the Crow's Nest! Outstanding service, wonderful food, and majestic views from the top of the Captain Cook overlooking downtown Anchorage, the Chugach and Talkeetna mountain ranges, Mt Susitna and even Denali! . Definitely an unforgettable experience on our dream vacation. We enjoyed every bite of the cheese slate appetizer, creamy king crab bisque, venison loin and the rib eye . And then to top off the evening... an unbelievable banana split!! Yum. Also, they have a smooth root beer on tap as a non-alcoholic option. Top-notch!

As always, excellent food, great service and consistency. Apart from the magnificent view.....
Excellent food, service, ambience and prices.
You really can't beat the Crow's Nest for the level of quality, service and attention to your needs. We have been to many fine dining restaurants all over the country. The Crow's Nest is still the best!
Good service , coooked well, poor quality.
Im a lifelong alaskan and x black cod long liner, so when I order Black Cod I know what good should taste like . This was a well prepared but old piece of fish . When i explained that i was told it was normal for it to taste that way . Anyway my takeaway was great service and great cook ,justreally poor product , was a lityle freezr burnt im guessing.
Just do it
For Benihana $ you can go first class, does not disappoint,food, view, service, atmosphere, all great
Perfect place to celebrate our anniversary!
The atmosphere was perfect quiet romantic setting. The staff were fabulous and they all took great care of us. The food was out of this world, timing was great for every course and we enjoyed every minute of our dinner. Our desserts came out with Happy Anniversary in chocolate on the plates which was a nice touch. We would defiantly go back there in a heart beat :)
Inadequate parking voucher
Upon leaving the Crow's Nest I asked if they validated parking at the garage across K street. The hostess said yes, and gave me two vouchers to use for payment. However, the two vouchers were insufficient; I had to use my credit card to make an additional payment. I was not happy, especially as I had tipped the hostess $5!
One of the best if not the best restaurant in AK
Staff was very pleasant, wine assist was spot on, cocktails fantastic, and flawless execution and creativity by the chef. Can't wait to go back. Be prepared for a spendy meal but you get what you pay for and worth every penny.
Service is on point portions are lacking
The service at crows nest was on point. Our waitress was super friendly and helpful he checked in many times on us. The food was full of flavor I had the duck and it was the best tasting duck I've ever had however the portions were very small I left still hungry.
Great Meal, Great View and Great Experience!
We were given the best table in the house, which had the best view overlooking Anchorage. The meal was phenomenal, from the starters to the dessert. Loved the service too, our waitress did a great job in making our meal a very memorable one.
Likely the most elegant dining in Anchorage
First and foremost, the New York Strip steak was the best I've had to date. The rich, earthy flavor and the complex flavors of a dry aged cut was unmatched. The bananas foster had quite a tasteful show to go along with it, and the signature banana split was gorgeous enough to be art and tasted good enough to be the same.

Crab cakes no flavor. Caesar salad not good! Coffee stayed empty! Very sad this use to be the place for good food. steak looked great but hard to cut. Needed salt. It's all show!
Capt Cook Crows Nest
Best dining experience ever enjoyed in Anchorage! Perfect choice for dinner after the Rondy Melodram for viewing fireworks and enjoying excellent food.
Though a bit pricey, the food was very flavorful and well prepared~!
Sorry you dropped the ball regarding the flowers.
Wonderful atmosphere, first class service and great food......But bring your own flowers....because they won't tell you they can't provide them and when you get to your first anniversary dinner with your new bride...They won't be in the table.

The waitress Kimberly was outstanding. The food was superb and everything was amazing! Great place to celebrate an anniversary.
Not just great view, wonderful food as well
Service was wonderful. Wonderful appetizers/salads, and the rib eye was much bigger than expected. Sauce on the steak was great and cooked perfectly. The highlight was the banana split. Large portions and is a work of art.
Great! but had some strange flaws
To keep it short everything was great, great food, great service. Only exceptions were the grumpy looking hostess who look bothered that we were there. And the fact that they sat us at a tiny high traffic table, when we had a reservation & the place was empty. Probably not how you should treat someone looking to move $200 to your business. Otherwise it was super, & the previous time was flawless.

Our first visit and is was our celebration for Valentine's Day. Was wonderful and exceeded our expectations. Kimberly was a wonderful server that timed everything, made recommendations to enhance our dining experience. When we were first seated, we were next to a really noisy table and right near the bar. I asked to be moved and we were promptly accommodated at a quite table. As I had stated in our Rez that we were looking for romance..:. Wine list is very complete with a few really fun choices as well as some less common selections. I could have pages through all night. We will be back, the pricing is very reasonable and we really enjoyed our meal.
The Crow's Nest has always been my favor ...
The Crow's Nest has always been my favorite spot for after work drinks and appetizers. Unfortunately, for the price of the food I do not feel dinner is worth the penny. Our party ordered the black cod, duck, crab legs and a salad. The duck was executed perfectly and was the only dish worth the cost. The cod was mediocre but I found the flavors rather flat. I will note, however, that the oxtail component was superb. Sadly for an Alaskan restaurant, the crab legs were dried out and the texture slightly mushy. Perhaps last year's batch? Regardless, for a restaurant of this caliber I do expect an Alaskan speciality to be prepared perfectly. Service was spot on and the wines, as always, wonderful.

Love this restaurant. My favorite. Tonight loud business meeting going on at next table.
Expensive but Amazing
If you're on a tight budget, don't go here. The food is EXPENSIVE, and the portions are small/average. But if you've got money to spend, this place is incredible. I took my wife here for her birthday. The food (especially the Rib-Eye) was AMAZING, we loved the view, the service was phenomenal, and if I ever want to spoil my wife again I'll be bringing her back.

Our server Ryan was lazy at best. I have eaten here several times and tonight by far was the least enjoyable experience. And the worst service I have ever had at this very fine establishment. The food was the only redeemable factor. Thank you chefs.

Great food. Very nice place to go for a special occassion.
Crow's Nest Extraordinaire
Great ambiance; we've been here many times. It was my brother's 60th birthday and he really enjoyed the entire repertoire of the servers and wine sommelier. Thanks for the great evening.
Days have passed, and I'm still reminiscing over the meal I shared with my daughter while overlooking downtown Anchorage and the Cook Inlet. The lighting was perfect - bright enough to see clearly, soft enough to help create a warm, classy ambience. Our service staff was impeccable, as though they read our minds. The goat cheese pa na gotta with lavender honey settled me right in, the olive rolls were crisp and warm, and my glass was never more than half empty. Our crab cake starter was just as amazing as I remembered, and I was left wanting more. I split the rib eye with my dining partner (we had our own sides), and we were more than satisfied with 8 oz each. Those fingerling potatoes, now they combined incredible flavors, one of which I still can't figure out. To finish, my table shared the Chocolate Delici, which combined a molten lava cake, a scoop of whipped raspberry ice cream, and a cream sauce. Such presentation!

The Crows nest is due for a remodel! The food was good and service excellent but it has the same dreary look it had 25 years ago
Always an experience
Its a 5 star experience in beautiful Alaska. If youre in for a romantic evening in the area then this is the restaurant. I plan my visit to AK around this restaurant everytime.
