Seven Glaciers Ratings and Reviews
We drove down to Girdwood and went to Seven Glaciers. The Tram ride up to the restaurant was beautiful. We were early for our reservation so we enjoyed a drink at the bar and had a shrimp appetizer. The shrimp is served with the shell on so it's a little messy and there were fewer than I expected (4 shrimp). After that out table was ready and we went to have dinner. Our table was at the window and we had an excellent view of Girdwood and the inlet. The food was great. We started with a salad and the lobster/scallop bisque. For our main dish we had the filet. I highly recommend it to anyone (it's awesome). For desert we had the baked Alyeska (also excellent). Seven Glaciers has a large selection of wine by the bottle and a good selection of wines by the glass. Overall we had an excellent dinner and evening.
This restaurant is a quality experience and one should expect to pay for it. The view alone is worth the trip, but the service and the food were excellent. The wine selection is superb and beers, though not nearly as numerous, feature Alaskan brews as well as notables. The menu is limited in variety as a focused, Quality establishment, but features Alaskan seafood. Specialties of the chef will likely be offered. With reservations, the 2000 foot climb on the tram is gratis. Our selections included Alaskan halibut, oysters, and don't miss their signature baked Alyeskan.
I have lived here all my life and consider 7 Glaciers a true treasure in my "backyard". The food and service are exceptional. The tram ride with the awesome view adds to the package. We were with friends from out of state and they marveled at the up scale food and service while all the diners were in traveling attire - t shirts and jeans. 7 Glaciers is a gem.
Our whole experienced was perfect! We celebrated our 9th years wedding anniversary.Our table had the best view ever! Everything was excellent the food, service & ambiance. We definitely come back and also recommend it to our friends!
Four of us dined here in early June 2017. Not impressed. First, service was very slow. There was a wedding party that (understandably, perhaps) took up a lot of the wait-staff's attention. But it took more than a half-hour for our order to be taken. Not good. We were at the last seating and, by the time we had finished our entree, we were surrounded by waiters busily flapping tablecloths, setting up for next day. It was so non-restful that we didn't even consider dessert or coffee - we paid the check & left. Second, the food was mediocre (and, relatively to its quality, far too expensive). Three of us chose (as a side) a half-pound of Alaskan King crab legs. I love them, and we sometimes prepare them at home. These were tasteless, easily the worst I've ever had. It was almost as though they'd been boiled in water for a while (instead of briefly steamed). Third, the view CAN be truly spectacular, if you're lucky enough to get a good table. But don't be fooled into thinking that all tables have great views. Ours did not. And even the wedding party table was not well-located; the guests at one side of the long table had a view of the cable car station. All in all, we definitely will not return for a meal. I MIGHT consider going back for a drink / bar snacks, but even then I doubt it because the cable car ride is $29 per person (although it's free if you have a table reservation) and, as I said, there's no guarantee that you'll get a great view.
The food, as always, was incredible. The service, as always, was lacking. It's not that I mind a drawn out dinner, but I don't like an empty plate sitting in front of me for 10 minutes before being picked up. Our fresh bread was brought to us after our appetizer and our water glasses would go empty before being filled. I eat here about twice a year and the service is to be expected. But I go for the incredible food, the great wine list and the beautiful jaw dropping views.
The chefs menu, when available, can't be missed! The wine pairing along with the 5 course meals was well thought out and pairs wonderful! I believe the course with the wine pairing will cost $200 per person. Steak with veggies is a $50 - $60 plate, not including appetizer or salad. Be prepared to spend money, but this once in a lifetime treat is worth it!
Way overpriced for food. Meats served on filler food such as sorghum, barley, black eye peas that were not tasty. Salmon filet was "tough" fibrous and not flavorful. Scallop bisque was the best part of meal. Requested window table for our 30+ anniversary but staff was blunt saying no accommodations would be made. We got a not great view table and was disappointed no acknowledgement of our special event. Staff seemed like they were trained to just say "no" to every request and in a very robotic way. No sense of customer service. We would not return to this restaurant.
Kelly, our server, was described by my wife as "a true professional server". I agree. Knew the menu and beverage list, and helped with our selections. Alaskan oysters plump and tasty. Scallop bisque to die for. Crab cakes awesome. King Crab as expected. New York Steak cooked to perfection and delicious. Great evening on our last meal on our land excursion before boarding boat.
Excellent service and food. My husband and I were visiting from Ohio and went to Seven Glaciers for our anniversary. We enjoyed the creative cocktails and exceptional food. We will definitely come back and would highly recommend to others.
Seven Glaciers is a wonderful restaurant perched on top of a mountain overlooking the valleys, mountains, and inland waters of Alaska near Girdwood. It is a 40 minute drive from Anchorage and requires a tram ride from the Aleaska Resort to reach the summit.
We were visiting Alaska for business and took several colleagues to dinner. The food was wonderful, the drinks were great, and the wine selection is amazing. The wait staff at Seven Glaciers is very good. They are attentive without hovering.
Seasonal food is a speciality and we happened to be in Alaska for the opening of the Copper River salmon run. King salmon were on the menu at most restaurants we visited, and Seven Glaciers was no exception. It was outstanding, as were the halibut, pork, and chicken.
Absolutely no complaints about Seven Glaciers.
It was a much better experience dining half way up a mountain in the daylight, rather than my first dining at Seven Glaciers in the dark. All of the staff were very cordial, polite and attentive. The food was very tasty, and prepared to perfection. I plan to visit again
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!
