    The food was great but was hoping for more breakfast type food. The staff was amazing and made us feel at home. It was a little out of my price range so not an every Sunday thing but well worth my daughters 16th birthday.

    Our server was perfect! There when we wanted and not when we didn't. She also kept topping my mimosas with champaign at no extra charge ;). I simply said it was my wedding anniversary and when we showed up to our table it was riddled with rose pedals. Our table stood out. The food, oh the food! Best buffet brunch In the Spokane couer d'alene area by far!

    The Davenport offers a top notch brunch in Spokane. It's a bit pricey, but the service and quality demands it. My wife and I went here last Sunday for a nice morning out with our 9 month old daughter. They had a high chair waiting for us at the table and our server was very attentive to us. I hate asking to have my water refilled; this was never an issue, I didn't even need to ask to have my mimosa filled. The quality of the food was fantastic as was the ambiance. Truly a great place for a nice brunch.

    This is a very popular feature at the Davenport Hotel---Sunday brunch! It really is a treat and this is the second time we've experienced it. Our previous time it was held in the upstairs ballroom which is very spacious and has a good layout. This past weekend it was held in a downstairs room where I think that most of the wedding ceremonies are done. Although all the food was delicious, it seemed like it was more crowded with the omelet station pushed out into the lobby. The salads were hidden behind the seafood. Still enjoyable though and the mimosas and champagne added a special touch.

    The Davenport offers a variety of dining options for breakfast lunch and dinner. Given that you should not miss out on an opportunity to have a Sunday Brunch with champagne and or a mimosa to treat yourself. You will be hard pressed to find many brunches out there in any part of the country that compares to the service and choices of items to eat. It is true northwest flavors with a beautiful presentation.

    I was so impressed with the service we had at the Davenport for Sunday brunch. I took my friend there to celebrate her visiting Spokane and the Davenport didn't disappoint. The food was outstanding, the deserts were amazing. I especially liked the chocolate fountain!!! Our server/waiter Robert was outstanding in his field. He was polite, informative, and responsive to our needs. All in all, I would recommend Davenport Sunday Brunch to anyone visiting the Spokane area. It was worth every penny!!!

    Last Sunday, my lovely wife and I had the pleasure of driving over to experience Sunday Brunch at the Davenport. Wow, what an excellent decision! The service (both smiling faces and ready to accommodate), food and the ambience were most excellent. All the goodies were there, Hand carved prime rib/jumbo prawns/braised beef ribs over mashed potatoes/pork tenderloins/ahi tuna/fresh trout/oh, and the bacon, just to name a few! There was an amazing omelet/crepes/waffle station and the dessert bar was just ridiculously good with a three tier chocolate fountain for good measure. Unquestionably though, my personal highlight: Chef Leland's Cream of Clam Chowder soup was off the charts delicious, with two huge bowls worth did I finish my meal!

    We had Father's Day brunch here and the ambiance and food was amazing. The hotel itself is beautiful and the dining experience was fancy, but you can get away with wearing dressy casual. The food was high quality, and to finish your meal was an amazing dessert bar with a chocolate fondue fountain. We will be back!

    I could only eat $4 worth of food and I drank $6 worth. They need to provide baskets for us so that we might carry the other $25 worth of food home with us. Or give us a rain check so that we might come back the following two Sundays. By the way, there was one food flaw. They should buy their shrimp from Costco. Costco's large frozen ones are superior to this offering.

    We've been to the Davenport brunch twice years ago. It was wonderful then, on the main floor. Upstairs the ambience is gloomy, but more importantly the food was kind of awful. Bland, dry, the salmon actually made me gag. It doesn't do the beautiful Davenport justice. I think Mr. Worthy should think about halting the brunch. And bring some focus back to the quality of food served there. There are a lot of really fine restaurants in Spokane that he is competing with now.

    I took my wife and mother-in-law to Mother's Day Brunch, and we all raved about the food, service, and ambiance. We were given an introduction to brunch so we'd know where everything was located...a nice touch. We never had to wait for or look for help from any of the friendly, professional staff; they were always available and perceptive. The menu and food quality were was absolutely beyond reproach. The detail of the hotel's renovation was like touring an architectural museum, just beautiful. Even if it's only for special occasions, the Davenport is the place to go!

    I'm a huge fan of Sunday Brunch, and the Davenport Champagne Easter Brunch was worth every penny of the $44.95 price! Mamosa, great coffee, amazing cheese, seafood, sushi, and the usual breakfast items including a carving station with roast turkey, prime rib & leg of lamb. The desserts were sensational, couldn't get enough of the dark chocolate rum balls. Weakest point overall was the Eggs Benedict, which really didn't deserve to be there. But, the cheese blintz more than made up for that one item. Otherwise, everything was grand! I drove 2 hours from Canada for this brunch buffet, & wasn't disappointed. Magnificent!

    I love the brunch at the Davenport. (It was a better deal price-wise for my husband, who ate the bacon and prime rib, than myself, a pescatarian. Don't get me wrong, the food was great and they had a lovely selection. It's just that for me it wound up being a lot of cheese and grapes and shrimp cocktail with dessert at the end.) I enjoyed every minute of it though. I can't forget the waffle! It was fantastic! Nice of them to have an omelette and crepe bar. Once I factor in the complementary mimosas, it's actually a pretty good deal. 10 out of 10 I would do this again.

    One of the best brunches around. Not cheap at $40.00 per person, but there's everything from prime rib to sushi to waffles, omelets and pastries. We took our niece for her 16th birthday and she loved it. The Davenport is such a special place, it's worth splurging once in awhile.

    We have come to enjoy going to the Davenport's Sunday Brunch. This time though, our server seemed to be very slow. He missed refilling our orange juice and mimosas for quite a while and had to be flagged down to come back to our table. Even asking for the check and paying took an extremely long time. The restaurant did not seem any busier than it normally is, so I don't know why service was so slow this time around. The food was marvelous as always.

    Just about everything about our Brunch at the Davenport was wonderful. The server was personalble and willing to take the extra time to meet our special wants, all but on of the dishes was well done with great taste to set each apart and of course the desert bar was a chocolate lovers paradise. My only complaint was the Mahi-Mahi was too dry from sitting in the chaffing dish too long.

    Wonderful brunch with everything you could ever want. Beginning with a create-your-own Bloody Mary bar and ending with a chocolate fountain, there was an omelet bar, waffle bar, seafood left and right, Mediterranean tapas, entrees, sides, and meat carving all in between. Wonderful service and food. You'll leave full and happy!
