Corsair Restaurant (Voyager Hotel)
Established in the '70s, this classic restaurant continues to offer fine dining in Anchorage. Just around the corner from the Voyager Hotel, it is frequented by legislative members, business travelers and local couples. In the theme of a sailing vessel, its cocktail lounge and dining room are separated by mahogany covered walls and sailing artifacts with artwork tastefully placed throughout. Sample the Alaskan Bouillabaisse ($31.25) made with Alaskan caught seafood and the wild Alaskan troll caught King Salmon ($25.25). Its largest wine list in Alaska will impress.
We've been all over the country and have been to some pretty "high-dollar" restaurants. The Corsair in Anchorage is the best value and dining experience you can find in Alaska or the West Coast including Seattle and San Francisco. Anyone who says anything negative about this place is obviously demented, deranged or possibly was evicted for inappropriate behaviour. The Corsair does not put up with trashy patrons. We actually witnessed the Maitre' D escort some obviously intoxicated woman and her male companion from the premises for complaining loudly about waiting too long for her food. She kept yelling about meatloaf, which they don't even serve and the staff acted quickly so that she would not ruin everyone else's dinner. She actually gave us something to laugh about and the waiter gave us her unopened bottle of Chardonnay.
You will Love this place.
Obviously, my last review was deleted, so I thought I would pay tribute, again, to the most horrid restaurant experience of my life. I assume that they had a massive amount of bad reviews and had to create a new Yahoo! account in an petty attempt to have a decent review rating.
Food: Bland and unoriginal food I would expect at Denny's.
Service: Slow, energetically and pretentious.
Ambiance: The clamshell like booths allows for everyones conversation to be heard with clear distinction.
Value: For the same amount of money I spent, I could have dined at Glacier Brewhouse or Orso's 3x. However, all I received was slop or what Corsair's seems to believe as 'fine dining'.
Anyways, if I can sway one individual to prevent the catastrophe of actually eating at Corsair's, I will feel that I have the world a great justice for my injustice of attending.
I fly up from Seattle at least once a year to dine here.

There is no elegant dining in Seattle like this anymore. The flaming salad, Chateau Briand, cherries jubilee, Cafe Diablo! Superb! The owner is most gracious, the staff most helpful. This place rocks!!!
This is absolutely the best fine dining Anchorage has to offer! I dined as a walk in while exploring just after my flight from Seattle. Throughout the next three weeks of my Alaskan sojurn I found myself whishing that I was back in the warm embrace of that intimate dining room at almost every meal ( I got that wish the last night of my trip ). Service was fantastic! After my waiter had greeted me owner Dan Jacobsen came to the table and spent a considerable amount of time discussing the extensive wine list with me. His knowledge is incredibaly comprehensive and we soon settled on a vintage Bordeoux to compliment my rack of lamb. I highly recomend the oysters christian as an appetizer. Ligtly breaded then sauteed and seved in a delicate lemon butter, They were delicious! My australian rack of lamb was the finet I have ever tasted. Perfectly RMR and crusted whith dijon mustard and Panko breadcrumbs it absolutely melted in my mouth. The wine, of course, matched beautifully. Dessert was bananas foster, and my waiter did a great job of making an entertaining show of the flambe. All in all, a fabulous experience. Upon my second visit I was given a tour, and I emerged doubly amazed that such fantastic food could emerge from such a tiny kitchen. Kudos to Dan and his amazing staff!
This is one of the very best places for fine dining in Anchorage. The Corsair boasts a wine list that is among the best on the west coast. My brother in law from New York City, who has lived and worked in New York, Chicago, and Seattle, was very impressed with the service and wine selection. The Corsair is a must-visit if you are in Anchorage for only a few days.
