A word from Palm Court Grill at The Davenport Hotel
The Palm Court Grill continues to serve the highest-quality food at a price that makes fine dining accessible to everyone. Its menu features choice cuts of USDA prime beef and freshly caught fish along with the region's finest wines and select ingredients that sample the bounty of the Northwest.The restaurant's private dining rooms have provided the graceful setting for wedding rehearsal dinners, birthdays, luncheons, and get-togethers for generations of guests. For smaller groups and people watchers, the tables in the historic lobby next to the hearth offer a mix of coziness and palatial grandeur. Meals for every appetite are served throughout the day. The Palm Court Grill also continues to uphold another estimable tradition: the Crab Louis salad, created and made famous nearly a century ago by Chef Edward Mathieu and loaded with tender Dungeness crab, is still served according to the original recipe — with, of course, a dash of contemporary spice.

    The Palm Court is a pleasant place to go. It is good for special occasions. One of the very nice aspects is the valet parking (free) when you eat at the hotel. This weekend the hotel was apparently 100% capacity (good for Spokane) and there was no valet parking available for locals who came to eat. Truthfully, it fairly well annoyed me. I spent just shy of $500 for eight of us celebrating my wife's birthday. It seems like there should be some sort of alternative recognition in the absence of free parking. Just my thoughts.

    We were at the Davenport for a family wedding and ate at the Palm Court Grill for breakfast 4 times. The food was consistently good (try their wonderful coffee cake -- like a dessert!) and the service was friendly and extremely helpful. The staff took special care of my 98-year-old mother, who rolled in in a wheelchair provided by the hotel and asked to eat at the Palm Court Grill each morning. The Davenport is a beautiful hotel, and the lobby outside the Palm Court Grill is a lovely place to meet.

    We were there on a quiet Monday evening for our anniversary. Service was slower than we expected, and the quality of the food was not up to our expectations for the Davenport (my pasta dish had been sitting under a warmer too long, the bread was not brought out until we were halfway through our entrees). The server just did not do the little things that usually make for a special dinner.

    The waitress was very nice and informative and made it very personable. She recommended a very good wine for dinner she made us feel very comfortable and let us enjoy alone time but yet was very prompt. This type of service is very rare anymore. I have already recommended the Palm Court Grill to friends for special occasions or just dinner this is Definitely a place to eat and not have to worry about the service or the food!

    The food was excellent, prime rib was good, not great, but solid. crab cakes, very good and my wife's stuffed pepper was excellent. I was surprised that the tablecloth's showed all their fold marks etc., and they simply sat the menu's on the table when we were seated and didn't present them to us, but those aren't deal breakers by any means. Those little things are the only thing that kept us from rating it excellent in every way. Our server was excellent and attentive, the food was served very promptly and everyone had a great time. our 6 year old son loved it.

    The food was wonderful, as usual. Apparently there was a wedding in another part of the facility so staff was at a lower level than usual. Frankly, the service was lousy. It was slow and inattentive. My wife had her salad plate grabbed before she was through eating it. On another note---be extra careful using their "free" valet parking. Over the past three years I have now had two bad experiences with them. The last time, they backed my car up from the garage to bring it to me. I couldn't figure out why. I just thought it was kind of odd, until the next day, when I found my front end to be damaged on the side that was hidden to me by this clever little maneuver. That is not so funny. It is better to park in the street.

    Atmosphere and service were fabulous. Brunch was excellent. My dinner however was served burnt which was disappointing. The server promptly took care of this but the coconut prawns were still mediocre. Ceaser salad was also mediocre and the croutons on it were stale. Expected a little more from the dining room. Husbands dinner seemed fine.

    Dined on 1/1/2014
    We ate dinner on New Year's Day. It was our first visit. We all, 4 of us, enjoyed our meals; which included grilled salmon with huckleberry champagne sauce, halibut with mango salsa, pan seared scallops and lobster tail with steak. I had the halibut, which was fresh and delicious. The vegetables were fresh and I substituted the rice for the garlic mashed potatoes, which were excellent. The servings were just right, not too much but not too little either. We had no complaints with our service. Friendly waiter that tended to our needs without being a nuisance. This was a more expensive restaurant than we usually are able to go to, but it was a great place to bring in the New Year.

    First time here for dinner. I just didn't quite get the feeling that the staff was totalling in sync to put on a great dining experience. The service wasn't polished. For example salads arrived at table before the before dinner drinks. Food was fine but it just didn't jump off of the plate. The dinner experience was not long, it just wasn't memorable like I have had at other restaurants around the world.
