Sleeping Lady is a great get-away. Two nights there is refreshing and only a 2.5 hour drive from Seattle w/traffic. The food at Kingfisher is fresh, flavorful and lovely. The staff goes above and beyond to make your meal and stay memorable. Our most recent meal was Easter Brunch. It was an unseasonably warm day. We were traveling with my two French Bulldogs. The service staff was kind enough to allow us outside seating even though the restaurant's official setup hadn't been prepped as yet for Spring/Summer. My friend, the poochies and I sat by the river under a pine tree in the sunlight enjoying a remarkable brunch with full restaurant service. Pretty sweet!

Delicious food in buffet setting
For a pretty high price for a buffet-like experience you'd get delicious food that it's hard to find in a very fine restaurant.

This is a buffet style restaurant although of a very high calibre. Sadly the downfall of this restaurant in my opinion are the table placements. This restaurant is situated in a beautiful forest setting but the seating arrangements are tricky as they have some very big tables that take up a lot of space. Great if you are with a big group not so great if you are a couple trying to have a romantic meal! We did ask to be moved but we were told that this was not possible. If you are making a reservation perhaps contact the restaurant itself and ask for a specific table.

I was a little unprepared for the openness of this dining experience. Obviously neighbors do influence the noise factor. Food was a buffet and good but do prepare yourself for the fact that this is not a quiet restaurant and that kids will be running around.

Best Breakfast in Leavenworth
I have been pretty disappointed in the breakfast spot selections in Leavenworth, until a friend recommended Sleeping Lady. I was beyond impressed! Not your typical buffet. the selections were unique, local and delicious! I am picky about the quality of food I consume and I will keep coming back for breakfast for sure! Great gluten free and fruit selections. the inside is beautiful, but outside is even more spectacular with the river and mountains right out the back door. It was nice to take a stroll around the property and check out the garden and O'Grady's pantry, which appears to have great food selections as well. I already made reservations for when my parents and in-laws visit!

Room with a view
Our third visit for anniversary was great. A little cooler than expected so set inside but have had very pleasant seating outside before.
The food was, as always, exceptional. Check out the board to see where all the wonderful ingredients originate. A visit to the garden is always a must to see the stuff (talk about local) you can expect to taste. We'll be back next year for sure.

Happy with the experience.
I felt the selection of food and salad bar choices were excellent. A lot of unique choices in the salad bar. For a special occasion it was fun, if not a little pricey. The atmosphere was nice and very family friendly.

Dinner on The Patio
Loved the Sat. evening dining experience - outdoors, natural setting, beautiful evening in the fresh air. It was a comfortable temperature (a tad too chilly indoors) - regardless, prefer the outdoors!
Wish you could carry a few more microbrews.

nestled in the woods
the kingfisher was not what I had expected. I knew going in that it was a buffet, but please know, this is NOT your normal pig trough. The server unfortunately was less than enthusiastic about our arrival and the food- could have made this a different experience- although the food here is the true gem. I chose the sockeye salmon- light, flaky. The salad bar was a organic and fresh- not heavy laden with oily selections. The dessert bar was exactly the icing on the meal. OH MY GOODNESS! AMAING food, MEH service.

The food in this restaurant
The food in this restaurant at Sleep;ing Lady Resort is absolutely AWESOME! They use natural, organic and local ingredients, the choices are varied, with a meat, fish and vegetarian entree, and the sides are interesting and healthy. We had a wonderful dinner!

Beautiful setting, fresh food
Overall we enjoyed our experience at Kingfisher. The staff were nice and brought us a special dessert tray that wished us a happy anniversary. Liked the freshness of the food especially the produce, fish and chicken. You may want to re-think the skirt steak which was tough (may have been cut wrong). Pizza seemed to run out too (kids needed to wait). Beautiful natural setting.

The Sleeping Lady Resort is well known for its commitment to locally grown organic foods. August is the best time to dine here as most all of the items in their wonderful salad bar fits this category of foods. At $15 per person, given the quality, it was well worth the expense. Our server was friendly and helpful. It was a very open layout with lots of wood, making it a little loud. But it wasn't too crowded the evening we were there, so the noise level was acceptable. The Sleeping Lady is also very near the Leavenworth Fish Hatchery where we attended one of the Leavenworth Summer Theater musicals. I'd definitely go back here for the salad bar as well as for the mountain lodge atmosphere.

Dinner @ Kingfisher
Nice buffet food and selections, salad is great. Wine by the glass is overpriced and not good selection.

Creative, delectable selections
Don't let "buffet" style put you off. Every choice is unique and you will want to sample them all. Beautifully presented, gourmet, and delicious from start to finish (and definitely leave room for dessert(s)!). Our reservations were early, and a good thing because a convention of folks arrived around 6:30 which would have made our dining experience less enjoyable.
