The Southside Bistro is one of the few restaurants that are perfectly consistent in the quality of their food, their service, their prices. Dinner is a little more expensive, but since we don't make a habit of going out to eat a lot, we like this place, because they know a lot about how to cook really really good food.... More

We'd been meaning to come here for awhile, and finally did. Beautiful, open, and friendly with a bistro side and a restaurant. Very clean and comfortable. Bonus points-you don't have to raise your voice to be heard over the noise like some places. There's chatter, but it's not deafening like spots downtown. The menu featured something for everyone. We started... More

Upscale little eatery that does things with style, flair and attention to detail. Friendly staff, good service and food was excellent.

My wife and I have lived in Anchorage for nearly 40 years and this is our favorite place for a nice meal out of 4-5 great restaurants in Anchorage. Interesting menu whether you sit in the fine dining or the more casual bistro side. Excellent preparation and presentation, even if you have dietary restraints (my wfe must eat gluten-free). Service... More

The food was very good and so was the service but for the type of restaurant it is I thought it was overpriced. The menu was very small as well and being a picky eater myself I struggled finding something simple.

This was an all around exceptional restaurant. I are here for lunch and was very impressed. The service was exceptional and the food and atmosphere was equally so. The menu is diverse and all items looked wonderful. I had a Cubano Sandwich and my friend had port schnitzel. We loved what we had. I will definitely come here again. I... More

We enjoyed a great meal, but our waitress was a bit off putting. Everyone else was welcoming and friendly though. Try the fresh halibut, you won't be disappointed!

When we drove up we were a little surprised by what looked like an average place in a strip mall. As soon as you get inside, your opinion changes. This is a very nice restaurant with a warm and inviting ambiance. The food was very good - one of the few places we ate at that did fish right. The... More

My family has been dining at south side since we moved to Anchorage, and in my opinion it is the best restaurant in town. The wait staff is helpful and informed, the atmosphere is always great, and you absolutely can't go wrong with the food!

We ate lunch there on the way south on the Seward highway. I had a very fresh seafood salad with lightly crusted rockfish and the freshest greens. We talked to the chef and he was interested in getting the best local ingredients and the freshest fish. My wife had a spinach salad which was also excellent. Service was very good.... More
