Seven Glaciers Ratings and Reviews
The food and service did not live up to the view. Our waiter was rude and clearly not interested in serving my table of four. The food was not bad, but also nothing to write home about. The view and the ride up was spectacular. It's the kind of place you take out of town guests who want to see Alaska when money and time are of no import. Otherwise Jack Sprat and the Double Musky are both better options in the area.
The tram is free if you have dinner here. It leaves from the 2nd floor of the Mt. Aleyska Resort. (Give yourself about a half hour extra to find parking, find the tram, get your ticket and get up there before your reservation time.) All of that said, GO THERE!!!! It is the most beautiful drive along the scenic waterway between the mainland and Kenai Penninsula . It was sunny and gorgeous weather the night we drove out to Girdwood, stunning scenery around every corner. But the best was saved for the top of the tram. The food choices were varied, well presented, and DELICIOUS! Our waiter was a summer transplant from Utah, who was helpful in every way with information about the hiking tails available (sunset wasn't until 10:30pm in Aug.), the Resort itself, and what to look for on the drive back to Anchorage. It was farm to table dining, with everything produced locally, and for Alaska, that's saying A LOT! Loved it, and can't say how well worth it it was to drive the 42 miles from Anchorage to diner here. Best meal in Alaska!
The server was great as well as the food. We were very irritated with the hostess because she would not give us a reason why we could not sit next to the window with a 5:00 reservation, keep in mind nobody sat there the entire time we ate. Nothing personal but a restaurant with that type of menu and atmosphere should not have a hostess with a nose ring and attitude. We are not tourists.....
This was a Great selection for our 30th anniversary, the servers were all very kind and even the ones that did not serve us knew it was our anniversary and let us know that. but most impressive, they called us five hours in advance to let us know there was a major accident on Seward highway and that we should plan accordingly, we were staying at Whittier and were very close anyway, but they did not know that. Great place, awesome view, i cant wait to visit Alaska and return here for another meal.
My birthday dinner was the chef's tasting menu matching each very tasty course with a wonderful wine, the quality of which is reflected in the restaurant's awards from AAA and Wine Spectator. The views were dramatic eye candy of course, being located at the top of the Alyeska tram. My husband and I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Fantastic food, but the service was extremely sub par. My husband (who is a professional Chef) and I visited for vacation, and showed up after touring the area all day in jeans and sneakers (we called and were advised of no dress code except no hats in the dining room). Perfect. We got sat at the bar because our table wasn't quite ready. We then proceeded to get passed by for no less than 10 minutes before even getting greeted. Then when we got to the table, Ramon our server didn't greet us for over 15 minutes, and when he did, he started with "What can I get for you?". No introduction, nothing. The food made up for the extremely poor service. The food and tastes were extremely excellent, and the Chef is a definite talent in the kitchen. We feated on the Wagyu steak which was superb. The potatoes were lacking, but asparagus was cooked to perfection. Great food, but we experienced poor service and very much felt like we were "Pretty Woman'd" and given poor service because of our attire.
Every time we have dined with you, everything. EVERYTHING. Has been impeccable! The chefs creations are amazing, ambiance is amazing! The only suggestion I have is that I believe you should have an after meal nap room. All that magnificent food makes me sleepy! 😊
We had a great time visiting Seven Glaciers this week. The service was incredible and we were very comfortable and relaxed. Our cocktails were delicious and the food came out steadily and timely. We had delicious bisque and the Salmon three ways was some of the best Salmon preparations I have had. The only problem from the meal came with the Halibut entrée. I wasn't excited with the flavor profile of the dish to begin with, but I live Halibut and as an Alaskan resident, eat it often. So it's usually my top choice in protein. It was served on a corn and potato succotash with peas in a light sauce. When it came out it was obviously dry just from first glance. Upon tasting, it ate like chicken breast--dry and u flavorful. Very disappointing, especially since I have eaten at restaurants with a menu not nearly the caliber of Seven Glaciers and had them NAIL the execution of the Halibut every time. That should also happen at a restaurant like Seven Glaciers. I would have liked to see a bolder flavor represented with the Halibut. My husband had the duck. While it was good, it wasn't memorable. Hopefully, when we go back, these dishes will pop more! Again, salad, soup, salmon, dessert, cocktails, and even the amuse- bouche were all fantastic! Just nail that Halibut and we will be back!!
Celebrated my mom's 65th birthday here. I let the restaurant know ahead of time and when they sat us, they wished her a happy birthday and thanked her for spending it at their restaurant. Off to a great start! Great care was taken by our server to ensure that everything was perfect. She was super helpful and provided great information to all our questions. The food was amazing, presented beautifully and service was flawless. A beautiful dessert was presented to my mom with no questioning whether she wanted something - of course there was a birthday candle! I was just amazed at how smooth the whole thing went; they really take care of everything. Price was right too.
When booking we didn't realize that this was up the mountain on a tram. We had a drink at the seven glacier bar with the bar staff explaining the glaciers that we could see and then our table had what must be one of the best views I have had for dinner over the mountains and the glaciers.
We selected the chef menu of 5 courses with wine pairing and the food and wine were what I would see in a Michelin, the scallop bisque was unique and as Kelly our server said that was his high bar and it was. The wines were good quality that matched the food. Kelly was very informative and he and his staff are to be commended.
The only downside was after course 2 it slowed and took 2h 15 min for the meal. We booked Thursday at 7pm and a lot or tour buses arrive Thursday and I did see one tour booked for 8pm for dinner at 7 Glaciers. We didn't get any explanation why the food was late except apologizes that it was late. If staff could be specific that would help
I would definitely go again but maybe a 6pm to avoid the tours
The service was outstanding. The food was incredible. I requested a window table because it was our anniversary and they accommodated us with a table with an awesome few of 5 different glaciers. One of the best tables in the restaurant. We will never forget this anniversary!!
Seven Glaciers is midway up Mt Aleyeska. Tram ride up is free with reservations to restaurant. It's an upscale place therefore on the expensive side but it was worth it. We had seafood bouillabaisse, Waygu steak, halibut, king crab legs, & sockeye salmon. Dessert was a baked Aleyeska. All delicious. Service was great. And of course the views - spectacular.
Reservations is a must as we tried calling with no luck and even popped in (it was on our way driving back to Anchorage from Coopers Landing) only to be told they were fully booked days before we booked online.
Glad we were able to enjoy it.
This was the perfect spot to celebrate our first wedding anniversary! The table we were at was equal parts cozy/intimate and spacious (we were at a corner table near the window, perfectly sized for two and far enough away from other tables that we didn't feel cramped). View was spectacular, obviously! Our server, Kelly, was absolutely wonderful--knew his stuff, was attentive, and had a sense of humor that meshed very well with our own. The food and drinks were to-die-for, dessert was beautiful (and equally tasty), everything came out at perfect timing, and it was all around probably the best dining experience I've had. As a lifelong Alaskan, I can't believe it's taken me 28 years to experience Seven Glaciers, but my husband and I will absolutely be back in the future!
The views where amazing. We tried to push back our reservation and where told they where fully booked. We where seated right away and waiting 20 minutes with no one approaching us before we went and asked for manager. We where then given a waiter right away but at a place this nice and expensive that shouldn't happen. Once we "found " our waiter he was very nice but obviously had too many tables. I would skip the dining experience next time and just take team up for the views.
