0 STARS: WORST RESTAURANT IN ALASKA

This fine dining restaurant, possibly, the most expensive restaurant in Anchorage, was a complete disappointment from beginning to end. We will never go back. I made a reservation weeks ahead and let them know it was our anniversary and requested a special table. Although we had a reservation, we were kept waiting 45 minutes for our table, in hard chairs by the front door which was freezing. (It was mid October in Alaska) You would think that during that time, the owner would have offered us a glass of champagne…or anything, for having to wait, but he did not. When we were going to our seat, we could barely get through the tables, they were SO crammed together. It was so noisy in the restaurant we had to yell. The waiters and waitresses all had on various modes of dress, as if they walked in off the street. We couldn’t tell who worked there and who did not. The first waitress who approached us, after keeping us waiting for fifteen minutes for a glass of water, finally came up and asked, “Do you know what you wanna get?” Classy… Now, you would think that celebrating our anniversary, we would be sent a glass of champagne or something. Nope. When we went to Simon and Siefort’s, they had a rose on the table, metallic hearts strewn across the table, a glass of champagne and also sent a huge piece of key Lime Pie to us. Very nice of them. Here? We spend a fortune and get crap. So, we ordered Prix Fixe. The scallop appetizer that was supposed to be “pan seared” was raw,still slightly frozen & disgusting. The 2nd course was a tiny canneloni that was 1 inch long (and not very good). As we are eating, various servers came by. I’d prefer one. The beef wellington was ok, and the dessert that came with the Prix Fixe was a tiny, noring, unimaginative cheap Mexican flan. Terrible! It was the worst food and service I have ever had in Anchorage, hands down. I’d give it 0 stars if I could. Suffice it to say I would never go back, even for free.
