I ate at the Tapas Bar above Ludvig's - owned by Ludvig's - because the restaurant was booked. However, I also ate several times at Ludvig's Chowder Cart in the Sitka Sound Science Center, and went there almost every day for the chowder and salmon sandwich because it was so good!

Took mom for dinner 2015. The food is good for Sitka. Way overpriced. You can get much better food in the Bay Area for a fraction of the price. Not sure why the need to charge so much. I just had a fantastic meal in Prague's old town square at pasta Fresca. It was amazing!!!! Far superior restaurant. For three... More

I went to the wine bar twice and once to the restaurant. The food is good and the staff friendly. The manager or owner seems to really care about her staff, customers and the community.

We arrived in Sitka the day of our anniversary and we can say this was the best restaurant we ate for all our stay in Alaska! The quality of the food is amazing, really good wine and atmosphere. The receipts are also quite interesting, offering the opportunity to discover new unexpected combinations. The chocolate cake is a must!

After a week at a fly inn fishing lodge that featured great food we were surprised to find a great restaurant in Sitka. We had been told a reservation was needed so we made one two weeks in advance. What we found was great food, good wine and beer selection and attentive service. This does not come cheap in Alaska... More

Last night was our third annual visit to Ludvig's food is always excellent and the service attentive and friendly. On each visit, I always end up ordering the nightly specials and have never been disappointed. A must visit for a great meal in Sitka.

Walked from our hotel. We were hoping to get in because reservations are usually needed. We weren't able to get s seat, however they have a bistro upstairs which was wonderful. Had a wonderful complimentary appetizer during happy hour with our wine order. We followed up with some delicious dishes.

we were given a recommendation by a friend to go to Ludvig's, and we were very surprised. The Bistro is every bit as good as anyone you would find in a major city. The food was way above expectations and I can't recommend it high enough. We had Lamb and it was done to perfection

There are so many reviews of this place I'm not sure adding another will help much. However, I've eaten here each year for the past 5 years, and they always deliver a great meal. Yes, the prices are up there, but all of Sitka (and Alaska for that matter) is relatively expensive for dining out. We've had most of the... More
