“Succulent Halibut”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

One of my favorite places in downtown Anchorage.

Recommended dishes:
- 4 Stars: Fresh Alaska halibut, pan seared, coated with pesto and pistachio, purple yam, carrots, tomatoes, spicy marinara sauce: I love the succulent texture of the fish filet. It is prefectly prepared, not a bit overcooked.

- 4 Stars: Warm apple spiced cake with caramel: Moist cake, delicious flavor, not too sweet (If you check-in using Yelp, you'll get a dessert for free!)

“Greeting was rude and restaurant was very loud”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014 via mobile

My wife and I made reservations here after it was recommended by the Hilton Hotel. We arrived 5 minutes early and was offered a bar high top. I asked for a table in the dining area and was treated very rudely. They punished us by making us wait 30 minutes past our reservation for a table. We were seated about three feet away from a table of ten people. They were so loud even the server could not take our order without leaning down and getting near us. We asked if there was a quieter place and were told no. She said the big table was a bday party. It got louder. We had dinner and the food was above average. Based on the price, location, noise level and rudeness upon arrival we would not return.

“A Gem in a Beautiful City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

Discovered this restaurant while wandering around looking for an early (10 a.m.) breakfast spot on a Saturday morning. Found the food so wonderful, we made a reservation for dinner on our return trip. Creative menu, well-executed preparation, great wine list, and fabulous service! Enjoyed the art work, too. Perfect!!

“Sacks is nice but expensive- as is the norm for Anchorage”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

I stayed in Anchorage in May 2014 for a few days as part of my travels. Anchorage is expensive and in the downtown core I find it difficult to find nice places to eat - I am however particular about what I eat and I expect quality for the price I pay for my food. I ate at Sacks for dinner twice during my stay. I had a mixed green salad with poached pears, candied nuts, blue cheese and added grilled chicken. It was very good but a bit expensive. I cannot comment on the rest of the menu but if I return to Anchorage I would eat at Sacks again - just know it will cost a bit more to eat while visiting here.
