Seven Glaciers Ratings and Reviews

We had a great time! The tram ride is beautiful in the fall time. But there were a lot of bugs! Little fruit flies and nats. I know they are from outside and believe me outside was much worse but they should try a fan or traps or something.

Took my husband to this restaurant for his birthday. The tram ride to the top was excellent. I am one that cannot ride Ferris wheels, etc due to heights and sway. This tram was very steady and comfortable. Saw a black bear on the hillside below us on the way to the top. The $25 per person team fee was waived for people who had a reservation at Seven Glaciers.
The restaurant is very proper. Coats were checked upon arrival. Other people's hats were checked. Service was exceptional, very well trained staff in the art of fine dining while still maintaining a personality.
Food was incredible. My daughter and I ordered the Chef's tasting menu, which is a multi course meal including phenomenal desserts at the end. My husband ordered the duck, which he said was the best duck he's ever tasted.
Be prepared to spend some money here. About $75 per person is about avererage. With pre-dinner cocktails, wine with dinner, food, and tip, we spent about $120 per person. But we knew that going in.
After dinner we went outside to look at the views. Absolutely gorgeous landscape. Be sure to bring a sweater or light jacket in the evenings as the elevation lends itself to cooler temperatures.

Fabulous dinner with a fabulous view and excellent service! Three of us had filets which were delicious and one had the halibut and thought the same. The sommelier suggested a wonderful wine and overall our meal was excellent! Quite the dining experience with a cable car tram ride up the mountain for starters. Highly recommend!

This place is special! With a view like this, Seven Glaciers could kick back and trust that people will come back just for the uniqueness of that. But then the service is exceptional and the menu is thoughtfully put together and the food comes out perfect and you find yourself leaving afterward, wanting for absolutely nothing, looking forward to the next time you can make it back!

Excellent restaurant. Pricey but worth it. The only thing we missed out on we're the views. Usually a restaurant with a view in a tourist location does not deliver on the food. This place delivers excellent food and service.

Service was great, food was cooked great however it could have used some seasonings, although cooked very well the taste was extremely very bland. Portions were small and very over priced for the quality. Put some salt and pepper on the tables, it is needed with the tasteless food.

This was our best dinner during our Alaska vacation in every way. The trip up to the top on the tram is amazing, the views from the bar are awe-inspiring, and the food is outstanding. The oysters were the largest and juiciest we've ever had, the seafood was creative and cooked to perfection, and our meat lover was impressed with his dinner as well. The service is attentive and fun, just a perfect experience all around!

The entire experience was wonderful. We were celebrating our 10 anniversary and from the moment we walked in, from the hostess to the waiter, we were made feel like it was a special day. Everyone was very professional, maybe trying a little too hard, but kind. The food was outstanding!

My wife and I recently traveled to Alaska for our honeymoon and as we researched places to see, stay and eat, Seven Glaciers Restaurant was a must. Dining in Alaska turns out to be rather unimpressive as there are few nice restaurants, so we thought this might be an exception. We chose Seven Glaciers for our first night out and drove in from Anchorage for the experience. The gondola up to the top was wonderful and the views were just amazing... in fact, that's really the primary draw for this place. We arrived early and were allowed to head up to the restaurant about 45 minutes before our reservation time. We took a quick look around the viewing decks and then decided to head to the bar to await seating. The bar was a bit crowded, but even from the seats at the very end, we just couldn't believe the jaw-dropping view. We both ordered lemon-drop martinis and they were delicious. Seating was punctual and, again, we had a wonderful view from our table where we watched the sky change colors as the sun set. We loved seeing the Warhol art behind and to the side of our table and our server was very good. We each ordered a starter, one of us the soup, the other a lobster salad and then both ordered different cuts of meat for our main dish. While neither of us found anything about the food worthy of complaint, we found our meals to be strictly average. We actually had better food at The Cookery in Seward a few nights later. That said, the views and unique nature of this place make it absolutely worth a visit. We made sure to get a reservation well in advance and it seems that's probably necessary even during shoulder season (we were there just before Labor Day). Overall a good experience and we stayed around until very late hoping to see "the lights", but alas - no luck.

We had a most delightful experience. Our waiter was polished, professional, and very personable. We received superior service from the moment we walked in. The food was creative, deliciously fresh, and perfectly prepared. We felt underdressed, but were treated as royalty.

What a special place! The environment is spectacular and the tram ride up to the restaurant is outstanding. Waiter was knowledgable, had great suggestions. Food was EXCELLENT! It was our wedding anniversary and the two Baked Alaskas (FANTASTIC!) were on the house!!! How nice was that??! When we were walking around the property waiting for the tram we saw three wild black bear (mom and two cubs) - so perfect! Great night!

The food was some of the best I have ever had, but it was also $217 for two people, not including gratuity, so I can't say it was a good value, and since I don't know anyone that could afford Seven Glaciers without saving for a long time, I can't say I would recommend it.

The view alone is worth the visit but then the food alone would be worth the visit. The combination is extraordinary. Stunning views including glaciers -a very unique experience. We will return; hopefully often. As far as food, I don't think you can go wrong but highly recommend the King Crab Legs and Baked Alyeska. It's almost sensory overload- in a very good way.

The portion size compared to the price was disappointing, but unfortunately that is to be expected in a "fancy" restaurant. The overall experience, riding the tram, watching the sunset and the clouds change, and enjoying company in a quiet setting, was great. I will bring out-of-towners here, but maybe after getting full elsewhere.

We were disappointed that there were only 6 entrees , with one (salmon) not available.
None of the 3 of us found anything special, so we had a good selection of salads, soups, appetizers and dessert, with a good bottle of wine, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We were traveling throughout Alaska for 2 weeks and only had one night at the Aleyska Resort.

I love restaurants at the top of mountains that you have to take a lift or gondola to. We've been to a few around the lower 48 & they've been great; great food, great views.
I was a disappointed with Seven Glaciers.
The ladies at the host stand were great. The bartenders were excited to be nearing the end of their shift. And it went downhill from there... Once we were sat our waitress took 15 minutes to even acknowledge us (yes, I timed it. As a former captain in a 5 star steak house it concerned me). Once our order was taken the courses were spaced but a bit too well, less time should have elapsed between. Our server was also not very attentive; we saw more of her SA than her.
The salad was our favorite course. Tasty. However the lamb was not as flavorful as you would hope and the king Crab was dry & also lacking flavor.
The views were spectacular!! The food w ...
The views were spectacular!! The food was excellent. The best part was finding a 5 star restaurant where you were ok to wear casual clothing because on a trip to Alaska, mostly cool weather & rain gear take up so much luggage space that dressy clothes aren't an option. People were dressed up but also in jeans & sandals.
