Seven Glaciers Ratings and Reviews
My husband and I celebrated his birthday here and we were delighted, as always. We love that they have an extensive wine list. Loved the bottle of Burgundy that the Sommelier helped us choose. Kelly waited on us and he was excellent! He was our waiter on our first visit...three years later...he's still serving people with the utmost attention to detail. The food was very good. We had crab cakes, oysters, scallop bisque to start and the Wagyu NY strip (served with heavenly dauphinoise potatoes) and Alaskan seafood paella as our main course. All of the dishes were noteworthy, except for the paella, which was watery and underwhelming. Hence, the four stars. I would still go back and try their seasonal dishes that feature locally-caught halibut and salmon. I highly recommend the melting chocolate cake for dessert!
Excellent food and good service, though it is pricey. We were there on Friday, March 31st at 7:30 p.m. Though there was still daylight, unfortunately we didn't have much of a view of Alyeska, as the visibility was pretty bad (the restaurant can't control the weather). I would imagine that in the summer, there is a fantastic view of Cook Inlet, and the surrounding mountains at Alyeska. Definitely, get reservations in advance.
We travel frequently and we dine out regularly . We were not pleased by our sitting area as we could hear a bartender making a drink with his extremely noisy blender . We also asked to be sited different area which was ignored.My wife wasn't happy about it . It wasn't a nice sunny day but our view was limited . My wife was facing the tram structure . 🙏🍀🦋
We often find that the fine dining on ski resorts can be very surprising (in a good way). Cost/quality tends to be better than you expect from the competition (particularly on mountain.) In this case, 7 Glaciers really does stand out. We had an amazing evening on top of the mountain, with a top notch meal.
We learned after the fact, that this is a local 'go to' in the afternoon for apres. If Dave is working the bar, ask for a Fizz! You won't be disappointed.
The food and service was absolutely incredible. I will say pay attention to the weather when you're making plans to eat here. It's located on top of a mountain and the wind caused us to be stranded for hours because they couldn't run the tram back down the mountain. Eventually they had to send Snow-cats to come retrieve us from the top of the mountain. They offered free drinks and dessert to make up for the inconvenience, but one of the people in our group had a flight that we were late for, so no such luck. Definitely would go back, definitely a once in a lifetime experience! Haha.
A nice quiet scenic view with amazing food and fantastic service. Went for a special occasion but chose lunch to take in the spectacular views! The food was excellent and the servzice was impeccable the atmosphere was relaxing and I highly recommend the restaurant.
Wonderful view that fails miserably in serving their clients. With a reservation for a window table, the day of, they switch the reservation for 15 minutes later and then seated us in the middle of the restaurant. After complaining, 10 minutes later they moved us. Two of the tables in our new section also got up and moved. Menu choices similar to The Double Muskie and Jack Spratts not prepared nearly as good. Would not recommend other than expensive viewing!
The atmosphere was very nice - the bar was casual as there were apres skiers taking part in cocktails. The dining room is somewhat separate and divided so the noise level isn't quiet, but isn't loud either. The food was very flavorful, seafood and filet were cooked to perfection. Dessert was fun including the chocolate pieces with Happy Anniversary written in gold. Nice touch.
you need to take a tram up to the restaurant, which can be disconcerting and because of all this, not the best, though doable, if disabled. The restaurant, though, was first rate in every way. the food was amazing from bread to appetizer to entree. somewhat limited menu, but you do have to cart all the food up the mountain. The service was on par with the finest gourmet restaurants, with more than usual staff and very knowledgeable and attentive. We will definitely return. It is expensive, but worth especially a special occasion.
The daily fish special of Rockfish was sweet and flaky and served with a tasty blend of black-eyed peas and green beans in a light buttery sauce. We shared the delicious and rich Baked Alyeska. The service was very attentive, with helpful recommendations.
The view at sunset was fabulous as the snow on the mountaintop became tinged with pink and orange. Dining at Seven Glaciers was a memorable experience of our stay at Alyeska.
Start your evening with a strawberry jalapeño margarita at the bar. Definitely get the boar appetizer. We started our meal with some oysters, then had the beet salad and boar appetizer. The king crab legs were good and half pound was enough for two when coupled between appetizers, drinks, and soup. To finish our meal the waitress recommended the scallop bisque. The bisque was buttery and decadent but needed salt and pepper. We ordered to baked Aleyska and it was the most disappointing dessert we have ever tasted. Cold, too sweet, gummy, refrigerator taste. Would not order the bisque or dessert again.
Not an inexpensive place, but given the quality of the food, the excellent service, the view, and the atmosphere, I didn't find it over-priced at all. I greatly enjoyed the experience, and the meal was really memorable without costing an arm and a leg. I chose two glasses of some lower-end wines cost-wise, but the quality was excellent as well.
Wow! Last minute dinner with a business associate. Knew nothing about the restaurant but it had great reviews so I booked a table for 2- So glad I did.
First of all is the location (which I did not know ahead of time); it's at the top of the tram from the Alyeska resort... about 2000' up. The views are spectacular.
Wine list is simply excellent and reasonably priced considering the location. Also love that they have the Coravin system so you can try some exceptional vintages by the glass.
Food was unique, locally driven and excellent. Still dreaming of that lobster salad.
Service was maybe a tad overdone (better than underdone, for sure), but I'm splitting hairs here.
Dinner for 2 with salads entrees and total of 8 glasses of wine came to $210 before tip. What you would expect to pay for this type of cuisine in a restaurant without a world-class view.
Service was great and you can't beat the views of the mountain and from some tables the inlet.
The menu is limited, but food preparation and presentation was between good and great. Best we have had since relocating to Anchorage 6 months ago. This is our new favorite and since you get fre tram tickets that would otherwise be $60 it's a value. Be sure to reserve in advance to take advantage of the free tram tickets.
We ate dinner at 8:30. Wish we would have made it during the daylight. Everything else was perfect. The waiting staff was the best I have had, food was amazing, and atmosphere was epic. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone! Definitely a must do if you are in the area.
Great Place, Service was super, dinner tables are right next to bar area and it was noisy, blender was load. Just strange to have that setting and noisy bar and skiers walking thru when you are trying to have a nice quite meal. The other side of the restaurant (away from the bar) was empty. We would do this again.
If you're anywhere near Girdwood, Alaska make a reservation at Seven Glaciers. You won't regret a single dollar, I promise!
I started with the bison appetizer and nearly canceled my entree because it was so delicious and filling. My entree was the NY strip and the 1/2lbs king crab legs accompaniment. No, I didn't finish it. Yes, I brought it back to my hotel room. Of course I will eat it in bed with my bare hands like an animal.
My partner, a vegetarian, started with the risotto and I think she cried a little at first bite. Her entree was a plate of grilled local vegetables atop Alaskan barley that was soooo flavorful. She doesn't have leftovers. Too bad, so sad!
For dessert she had the melting chocolate cake with a side of salted ice cream. I think she put the cake in her pocket because it was gone as fast as it was delivered. I had the infamous baked alyeska which is as yummy as they claim. It's rich though...split it with a friend. One dessert is plenty for two. It was my birthday so I attempted to eat the entire menu in one night.
The service! If you're lucky enough to sit in Kari's section, you're in for hospitality of the century! She was very knowledgeable, super charming, and kind! She packaged our unfinished bottle of wine and after dinner chocolates without judgment (she knew I had plans to devour my leftovers in bed and drink wine from the bottle.) The restaurant doesn't have a bad seat at all. The views are stunning! We had a 5pm seating which was perfect to see the sunset and catch some gorgeous photos before nightfall.
Eat at Seven Glaciers, y'all. It was the best $300 we've spent on a meal in a long time and I'd do it again tomorrow if we weren't headed home.
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.
