Seven Glaciers Ratings and Reviews

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 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.

Me and my wife were celebrating our 8 year wedding anniversary at the beautiful seven glaciers restaurant. The views are amazing but the service was the best we have ever experienced. Our server Brandon had a lot of knowledge of the food and was great. Cody our other server was also very nice and genuine. This was our best dining experience ever! Thanks everyone!

As always, this place hits it out if the park. The wait staff are top notch and always attentive. My girlfriend has several food allergies so we rarely eat out, and 7Gs is always willing to work with us on food prep. This place seems to get better every time we come back.

Despite poor weather, and limited visibility, the experience was extraordinary.
The sommelier was a tremendous help in pairing the perfect burgundy with our main course, the staff was incredibly efficient and truly went out of their way to make this the perfect experience.

Enjoyed our dinner. View was AMZING! Halibut was Delicios and beef was Perfect. We were in Alaska for 2 weeks and ate dinner out every night. This was our last night. This by far was one of our favorite places. You cannot go wrong with dining at Seven Glaciers. Cook was also very accommodating to substitutions and accommodating low sodium diet.

The view is outstanding but the food was average. Our waiter was very good and attentive however the staff who delivered the food never put the right meal in front of the correct person all night . . . For a restaurant that bills itself as upscale this is restaurant 101. The dirty martini was outstanding. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend that you go for the view alone but don't over expect on the food.

I ate here twice, once as a guest with a party of 6 on Monday night, 8:30PM seating and once on the following Friday as the host . of 6 and a 5:30PM seating. Mondays service was terrible. Three hours for dinner with an hour + between salads so we opted out for desert in fear it would be another 45 minutes. Had I been the host of the group I would have complained. I almost cancelled my dinner for the following Friday in fear it would go bad also. Due to no other choice, I stuck with the reservation and am glad I did. Two of us did the Chef's tasting which kept the food coming at a regular pace. The wine list is excellent and fair priced.

Portions tend to be on the small side. Service is uneven. Several mistakes in service like taking plates too soon or mixing up orders. Wine list was adequate but heavier on French and California. Very inflexible on timing and was annoyed to be reminded that our table would be occupied by another party in 2.5 hours. Very creative and memorable dishes

Top notch in every fashion. Has been our anniversary spot the last two years and they do not disappoint. Made our day special. Great food, service, friendly but not intrusive. The Chef's 5 course meal is outstanding and a great value

While the views from Seven Glaciers were amazing the service was a bit questionable. We started the night great hostess and bar tender were perfect. Our waitress took our app order and we ordered food at the same time. Our apps came out via a different server and the food was great. We then waited for quite a while and finally our server came back. She handed us a desert menu. We were unsure if they just wanted to get orders in as some deserts take a while so we ordered. When our desert came out we mentioned we haven't received our main course. Our server was informed and she brought back the desert to which we again mentioned we hadn't received our main course. After a few minutes our main course was brought out however our Alaskan King Crap legs (market price) were served warm and in some parts cold. Our server mentioned sorry once in passing when she initially tried to bring us our desert before the entree but never really checked if our food was good once it came out. This was a major let down as the main course was something we were looking forward too. The server also never checked back to see if we still wanted the desert we had ordered 1 hour earlier. They delivered the desert and the check and sent us on our way.

I was on vacation in Alaska and cruising also. The Seven Glaciers restaurant was recommended to me. Great dining experience, even tho probably the only time I will be there! Thanks for a
good time, great food and a memorable evening in beautiful surroundings!

Highly overrated. Go for the view, not the food. The menu is fairly limited and no substitutions are allowed, even in the case of medical allergies. It seems as though the kitchen is on auto pilot, cranking out a limited number of selections. Wait staff experience was uneven, but primarily indifferent. It seems they know they will get a different tourist every night, so no extra effort is expended. However, the views are amazing.
