My husband and I ate here while visiting Anchorage. Good service, started with a Ceasar salad and had grilled Copper River Salmon and vegetables. The salmon was excellent. Highly recommend.

This downtown seafood restaurant serves fresh seafood, chicken dishes, pasta, salads and more. Try the lobster Mac and Cheese for a decadent treat. The tenderloin appetizer can serve as a light entree. Fetifcinni is creamy and flavorful. Highly recommended for a nice dinner out.

This restaurant has a relaxed feel and the quality of food is superb. The halibut on parsnip & beet purée with lightly cooked kale, chopped bacon and shallot made for an interesting, but not over-powering, combination of flavors. The service was outstanding and our server...More
