Well, okay, any restaurant can have an off night, but we've never had one at Lavelle's. This is where we send--or, better, take--visitors who care about the quality of what they eat. And drink: Kathy's mastery of wines means the list here is exceptional for a restaurant this size anywhere. The one aspect of the menu that I cannot praise... More

We ate dinner here one cold night while in Fairbanks. The food was our best meal of the trip. My halibut was perfectly cooked. My husband had pork which he very much enjoyed. The wine list was phenomenal! The server's assistant kept our water glasses full and dishes cleared. We did not enjoy our waiter as he was a bit... More

Good services, Good wine list, ambient a bit dark but overall good experience. They served huge size of New York Steaks!

Labeled is a fine dinning experience that you would not expect in Fairbanks Alaska . The Lamb was excellent and the creme brûlée was to die for.

We were not expecting much for a restaurant in our Spring Hill hotel but were totally surprised by every aspect of this 4 star restaurant. The room is beautiful (and very crowded the night we were there but the service remained impeccable) and the menu would fit well in NY or Chicago! The vegetarian risotto was truly exceptional with lots... More

It was my second trip to Fairbanks and to Lavelle's and they definitely didn't disappoint. Yes it is a bit on the pricey side, but the food is tasty and service is top notch. It was a tad cold outside so we ended up eating here twice on this trip. Thing tried: - Calamari - This was a yummy appetizer,... More

I ate here twice as it was in my hotel. The food is SO good! The shrimp was to die for, as was the chocolate creek brûlée! I sat at the bar the first night because I didn't have a reservation. The second night it was a tad slower and I sat in a table by myself. The atmosphere was... More

Thank you! I'm thrilled to hear you had such a wonderful pair of evenings and that you were comfortable as a solo diner. :) Isn't the brûlée positively scrumptious? Thank you for dining with us and for taking the time to write such a wonderful review. I hope we'll see you again soon! More

Although the prices are spendy, this is an excellent place in Fairbanks to eat because the food is well prepared, there is a variety for everyone to choose from, service is great, and the overall ambience is just a fun place. We had all kinds of appetizers as we spent several hours drinking and socializing, then had entrees(Rack of Lamb,... More

My husband and I went here for our wedding anniversary. We were hoping we could dress up and be fancy since there aren't a lot of high class restaurants in Fairbanks to dress up for. So he was in a suit and i was in a dress... we were very disappointed in the atmosphere as we were the ones sticking... More
