Fodor's Review

Food lovers pack into Ludvig's to sample chef-owner Colette Nelson's remarkably creative cuisine. Be prepared for a wait, but rest assured that your meal will be worth it. The interior evokes an Italian bistro, with rich yellow walls and copper-topped tables. Seafood (particularly king salmon and scallops) is the specialty, and organic ingredients are used whenever possible. You'll also find Caesar salad, vegetarian specials, and Angus filet mignon; the wine list is among the state's best. Ludwig's recently expanded its local offerings to include Rio's wine bar and a soup cart—great options for those who can't commit to dinner or score a reservation. At Rio's, upstairs from the bistro, you can order tapas plates; on the menu at the cart, next to the Sitka Sound Science Center, are chowders, sandwiches, and salads.
