Seven Glaciers Ratings and Reviews
I made reservations a couple of months in advance for a table next to our friends' table whose idea it was to eat there. My friend and I arrived together only to find out that we were to be seated on opposite sides of the restaurant. In addition, my friend had called about 3 days earlier to verify the reservation and ask if our tables could be put together. After we resisted their planned seating, after stating that it was not acceptable about 3 times, they came up with 2 seating options where we could all be together. Not a very auspicious start, but we were happy to be seated at one table even if there was no view from there, it was foggy anyway. We still had fun, the food was excellent even if it took quite awhile to come out. Fortunately, they kept bringing us bread to tide us over. Would go again for a special occasion or if our friends all want to go again.
What a wonderful experience from start to finish. Jolie and "Jumper" were great and added to the feeling that we were the most important people in the dining room. We enjoyed the food and everything else about Seven Glaciers. It was worth the trip through not so nice road conditions to enjoy this 5 star 5 diamond restaurant. I hope to visit again some day ;)
Excellent view with our early seating. Carrie Beth, our server, provided exceptional care and service. Bar drinks were well crafted, as was the tri-color sorbet dessert. My son had the Snake River Farms steak which was a ten out of ten and I had the fresh Alaskan Rock Fish, which also was outstanding. Recommend an early seating near sunset so the valley and glaciers can be enjoyed before dark. A truly memorable dining experience we won't soon forget. Thanks Seven Glaciers and thanks Melrose, down at the front desk of the Aleyska for getting us an earlier seating. We'll be back, but not soon enough.
The restaurant was great! We were a few minutes late, and the hostess upon seating us told me I shouldn't use the restroom until after I ordered. I thought that was pretty inappropriate thing to say to a guest, and you never know what someone's physical situation is. And I already apologized 3 times for being late.
Ordered the Wagyu beef and found it to be somewhat tough and chewy; however the flavor was good. We did not feel it was worth the money paid.
We appreciated that Francis came to our table to explain our wine selection.
We did not feel rushed or ignored at any point by our server, Kelly, during the meal.
The heater at the tram was not working, and it was quite chilly while waiting to go up to dinner.
Booked for our 20th Anniversary. The service was great, and the food outstanding. It is a little pricy, but considering the unique location, worth it. As it was winter, the view was not very visible. However we have been there before, and it is a great view. So summer evenings and lunchtime views are stunning.
This was my second time here in 2 years, and the menu has not changed a bit...this is bad. They had about 5 options for lunch, ranging from a little pricey to expensive. It was really fun taking the tram up...we had the dining area all to ourselves because the place was empty but it was honestly a little depressing with the lack of atmosphere. The rock fish sandwich was decent and the bison burger was also decent, if not too sweet. Fries on both plates were pretty rock hard. The service team was alright and overall it was okay but not worth the expense.
We happened upon this place while staying at Alyeska. The food was absolutely delicious but what really makes it is the atmosphere and the fantastic very friendly service. We loved the layout too, we had a table for two next to a window that looks down on the Alyeska Resort. You really cant beat the ambiance at this restaurant. I highly recommend this place for a romantic dinner.
Was really highly disappointed. Come to this place for our honeymoon dinner. The meal was $157 for two steak dinners that had the same taste as a Texas Roadhouse steak. Crab cakes were $17 and there were only two, very tiny, round crab cakes that came with that appetizer. I will never go back and definitely will not recommend.
The evening was incredible beginning to end! Every person we interacted with was so kind and seemed happy to be there! I loved every bite from appetizers to dessert! I highly recommend the smoked salmon house pasta and baked Alyeska. Cannot wait to go back!
The scallop bisque is amazing. The rockfish sandwhich was very good as well as the Mac and cheese. However, I wouldn't opt for the king crab addition, the Mac and cheese overpowers the crab, and doesn't compliment it. Otherwise, the Mac and cheese was great.
Had a great dining experience with family at the Seven Glaciers Friday 1/13. The restaurant was warm and inviting. Great service and food. A view to die for...simply amazing and beautiful. Can't wait to visit again when I come back to Alaska in the spring. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Overall a beautiful restaurant with unbelievable views of Turnagain Arm and the mountains. I cannot say I recommend this restaurant based upon the value and quality of the food. This is not my first time at an award or star winning restaurant, and the price of the entrees does not match the quality or tastes of the meal. For being one of the few AAA four Diamond rated restaurants in the ENTIRE state of Alaska, I had very high expectations for our meal. The Alaskan Seafood Paella was not amazing and seemed thrown together with little thought or effort - and even over cooked. The cut of Wagyu beef fillet was excellent yet still left our table a bit underwhelmed and tasted under-seasoned. The service and ambiance was great, but I've been to other newly opened restaurants in downtown Anchorage that blow the food at 7G's out of the water. If you want to experience the view and ambiance here then I recommend taking the Alyeska Tram up to the bar in the restaurant instead for a drink and appetizers.
Seven Glaciers offers outstanding cuisine with perhaps the finest restaurant view in the world. A tram ride to the top of the mountain leads you from active snowboarders to the sublime, four diamond meal and service. It has been our favorite in Alaska since it opened 20 years ago, summer or winter. We had pork and duck this time, with brilliant appetizers and a fine Oregon Pinot Noir. This should be everyone's favorite in Alaska--just 45 minutes from Anchorage.
This is my second time dining here. Wine and Dessert were amazing. Main course was a steak and was not thrilled with it. It was cooked to my liking but wasn't anything special. Had much better steaks for the price. The potatoes and crab cakes were more than expected! highly recommend them!
Our waitress seemed like she was on her own schedule. We had to ask other waitstaff for assistance 3 times when she was missing in action. She eventually followed through w some of our requests but w significant delays. The food was delicious and very fresh; hot dishes were very hot and cool dishes, appropriately cool. Scallop bisque is the best thing on the menu--outstanding! Pork cheeks were a treat and prepared beautifully.
I was very disappointed the tram to the top of the mountain was cancelled because of high winds. I understand that, of course. But spending more than $40 per entree in the Pond Cafe, at the bottom of the mountain, wasn't nearly worth the time nor money spent. In fact my food was so average, I'm not sure I'd be willing to give dinner another shot. I will say the oysters were fantastic. Maybe I should try again for the summit, but only for appetizers and cocktails.
The food is very good. I had the duck and it was beautiful. I cleaned my plate and all was consumed. My husband had the beef that was amazing. It came with this divine potato terrine and I when I tasted it was like heaven. Speaking of heaven, the views are breath-taking. With the excellent food, great service and also amazing views, it is hard to tell what was the best part of the evening. I need to state that we arrived a little early and were asked to wait in the bar area. The hostess brought us to the bar area where there was a loud crowd. Sensing that didn't want the noise, she seated us in a secluded part of the floor next to the windows. It made the night perfect and I like to praise the hostess for her quick thinking and consideration. She is probably the best hostess that I have meet.
We love eating at seven glaciers.
Food has always been great and it's worth the pretty drive from anchorage but dress warm because it can be a long walk from the parking lot because the bus only picks people up like every 45 minutes and it's a cold walk and tram ride up the mountain if it's wintertime.
We made reservations for seven glaciers restaurant two weeks in advance and they called us about an hour before and we were not able to answer the phone so we called them back a few minutes later while we were getting parked and walking to get our tram tickets and they put us on hold and and we finally gave up and hung up after like 15 minutes on hold and we called back and the woman gave us the third degree and asked tons of questions were are you and when are you coming and are you sure you want your table it seemed like they wanted us to cancel.
We arrived a few minutes early and the female hostess was very uppity and rude and very bossy and she bossed me like five times in five minutes and that's a bit much for me and she jerked silverware out of my 8 year old daughters hand because my daughter was moving it and told her not to touch.
She was uppity and rude the whole time she seated us and was not nice at all very cold and after the whole phone call thing and she was the one on the phone I'm pretty sure we were beginning to think our Christmas Eve afternoon meal was going to be ruined but after that it was fine and the food was great as usual and our waitress and everyone else was very very nice.
The hostess starts off your experience so my opinion is there hostess should be very very nice so they fix this issue and I would give them five stars.
Oh and the hot chocolate is amazing our daughter gets it every time.
The macaroni and cheese and the bison burger are amazing .
It's an annual tradition for my family to have our Christmas dinner at 7 Glaciers. The anticipation is almost unbearable. The staff is outstanding, especially Kelly, who made it a point to exceed our expectations. Not a simple challenge when you have a 10 year old and two twelve year old children, who have eaten here four of the last five years. They expect kid friendly options, attentive wait staff and someone who can explain what everything is.
The views are stunning and the food is amazing. We will continue to come to 7 Glaciers because of the service and their commitment to ensuring we have the best time possible.
The service and food were excellent. I ordered the Wagyu steak and it was probably the best steak I've ever eaten. Our waitstaff was very knowledgable and accommodating, and the fact that the chef sent us complimentary small dishes as a welcome to the restaurant made us feel very special. I requested a specific flower for the table which could not be accommodated, but our table was still given a beautiful rose, which I felt was still going above and beyond for service. The cocktails were delicious, and I was surprised that they weren't more expensive. My only two gripes were the vegetarian selection, and the view.
Re: the selection, the Entrees being carnivore-centric is understandable given the local food and hunting scene, but given that my date is a vegetarian, I was a little disappointed with the off-menu options for vegetarians. This is a common issue we run into up here- not a huge deal, but not excellent.
Re: the view, our reservation was at night, and though we were expecting to not have the spectacular natural views we'd get in the daytime, we still would like to have been seated on the side of the restaurant facing the town so we could at least see some of the Girdwood lights at the foot of the mountain, or the ski lift lights, instead of just darkness. Again, not a huge deal because the ambiance inside the restaurant was beautiful and warm, but not excellent.
Overall, our experience was one we will not forget, and we plan to come back again. The best part was the service. Our waitress was knowledgeable, courteous, and offered her opinions on the menu items to help us decide. My girlfriend couldn't eat the chef's gift of potato leek soup because it contained chicken stock, so he sent her a custom vegan dish instead. We were blown away. It definitely made the weekend a treat. We will be back (possibly for lunch and cocktails).
I met some friends for lunch there and it was my first time at Alyeska. The view while we were dining was something you see on television. It was a great dining experience. The staff was attentive, courteous and informative. I would definitely recommend Seven Glaciers to anyone that wants the total dining experience.
This was an experience to remember! The food was exquisite, Served by a knowledgeable and gracious staff that never came off as pretentious or snobby. It was expensive yes, but we felt we got our money's worth in the overall experience. As a special occasion, or a vacation here at home in Alaska, I would recommend it to all!
I admit, we were concerned 7 Glaciers may be too formal to be able to enjoy my birthday celebration but decided to try anyway. WOW! Atmosphere was AWESOME.
Our Server, Justin, was fantastic. He answered questions, joked with my father and made us feel as though we were the only customers. Another server, Chester, joked with my husband about being Lions fans. I love this place!
