    We had a wonderful experience at the Dining Room. The food was exquisite - we shared the chateaubriand - and the wine selection was perfect. The wait staff was on top of things with the perfect amount of attending to our needs without hovering. We would definitely return and recommend the restaurant to friends.

    The Salish is a lovely facility with nature's full presentation. The food is divine and the wait staff was curteous, fun and engaging. It is a perfect place to bring an out of town guest, rain or shine. The gift shop is also very well done, with classy and tasteful choices for a variety of purchase options.

The quality service, gormet food of chateaubriand could be cut with a fork, the escargot was served with a delious sauce, and romantic atmosphere with tablecloths and candles was superb. We will definately return.

    We had an excellent dinner served by personable but respectful staff. The only negative was that the air conditioning was too cold and our waiter was unable to have it adjusted. We were told that their executive chef had left two days prior to our visit: it will be interesting to see what the new chef brings to this excellent dining room. We look forward to our return visits.

    Fabulous food. This was a great place for us to celebrate our anniversary. Was a bit pricy but that was expected and the food was well worth the price. However, my husband ate only a few bites of his prime rib and wanted to take the remainder home with him and the waiter threw it out. No apologies, no partial credit for the mistake. Was dissappointed in the waiter presuming that we would not want to take home our leftovers.

    Quite possibly the best breakfast we've ever had...the Croque Madame was fantastic...coffee service was excellent - lots of extras like chocolate shavings and freshly whipped cream. Service was spotty, but good...there were many times where we had to wait for water/coffee refills...but when the servers were present, they were quite competent. Just make sure not to order too much - these are huge portions! Don't miss the breakfast potatoes and bacon - superb!

    There was a group of 10 to our party. We were placed in our own private room downstairs, which was great because we had two toddlers in our group! We had a great view. Coffee was served and our orders were finally taken. The service wasn't so great towards the end. Our food was not delivered all together, rather 8 of us received food and the other two did not. We waited for approximately 8 minutes before the rest of the food arrived. Not wanting to be rude, we tried to wait for the rest of the food to arrive. This caused everyone else's food to be cold. After the food finally arrived, we had to wait for the server to come back again to tell her we needed salt and pepper (there wasa none on the table).

    My Fiance and I just ate here, and even though we looked young and obviously weren't used to this ambience and service we were treated with the same respect and quality service as the other diners. The food was amazing and the number of fun and interactive meal options makes it less a dining experience and more an activity to be enjoyed. My Fiance and I are getting married soon at Salish Lodge and we are ecstatic that we will have such a gorgeous and wonderful resteraunt to visit during our anniversaries for many years to come. If possible come on a nice day near sundown so you can see the sunset over the amazing view of the falls. Outstanding.

I was under the impression it was an included service with the Salish Country Breakfast. The best thing was the coffee! It comes with sugar, cream, fresh whip cream and chocolate shavings. Save your money and skip this tourist trap!!

Beautiful morning weather for the drive up over and back on the pass and then a stop at Salish Lodge for breakfast! An excellent start to the day with impeccable service and location. Highly recommended for the family and guests to the Pacific NW.

    We dined at the Salish Lodge (we thought it was Snoqualmie Falls Lodge) about 26 years ago. We remembered the views and the hearty, showy breakfast... We took our 21 yr old son, and planned on showing off this special place. - Apparently, things have changed. We made reservations a month in advance and hoped for a special table and a warm welcome. Though everything was pleasant, the staff seemed surprised by our visit and offered us several seating options - there was no special table. We had reservations at 11 am and expected brunch. We were told breakfast was over and were given a lunch menu. After we ordered, we overheard the table next to us ordering breakfast! Their waiter offered specials and recommendations...

    We arrived a little early but were still quickly seated at a nice window seat. It was a Sunday morning and we were there to enjoy a nice breakfast. All the menu options that we ordered were very good, with the possible exception of the steak and eggs...as portions of the meat were tough. The other choices, smoked salmon + eggs, crab + eggs and the made to order ommlet were delicious. Clearly this is a special occaission place that offers a unique setting and very good food.

    Great view, superlative service. The Salish is an excellent spot for a romantic evening and/or special occasion. The food is very good, with an interesting range of options (Duck ravioli; Kobe beef seared on heated rocks at your table!). However, you can get food of similar quality elsewhere without spending this much. I'd say most people will come here for the service and the ambiance rather than for the food itself. Overall the atmosphere is very high-end; I don't think they have a dress code but you won't see many T-shirts or tank tops at dinner. Prices are fairly expensive. I'd plan on $80 per person for light drinkers.

    We stayed at the lodge and enjoyed our stay. We have eaten the several course breakfast before with the famous honey from heaven but this time we noticed some things that weren't perfect. The chaircovers were worn out and pilly, our daughter did not receive her special hot chocolate that was part of her meal and we had to ask for it. When we did, the assistant waiter seemed surprised that we actually wanted something that was included in the breakfast. Finally, we ordered the Railroad breakfast for our younger daughter from the kids meal $8. We were surprised at how large the dish was....turns out they brought out the adult Railroad breakfast and charged us $19 for it. Very disappointing.

    Consomme ($12) was barely there, hot rocks completely unnecessary for two paper thin tiny pieces of kobe beef ($24), salmon bacon ($21) was a chunk as small as my thumb. Not worth the money which seemed to pay for the presentation than for actual food. Worse yet, after ordering, we waited 1hr+ just to get hot rocks (to cook the beef on) taken out and brought back in because they weren't hot enough. We expected more for our time spent waiting and $95+ spent. One hour for the tiny raw food to be brought out and not even cooked? The redeeming factors are the waiters were nice, but their constant explaining of many "the flavors" to "play" with for such a small dish made me feel punk'd. Also cheesecake ($12) was great (and bigger than meal

    Our experience at dining at the falls was wonderful. We had brought guests from North Carolina and we all had a very comfortable and great experience. This restaurant is truly a place everyone needs to visit and enjoy the great service and food. The staff does go overboard to help. The prices are not cheap but well worth what you receive. This was one of the top two dining encounters of my short 57 years. As my wife said this is not a meal but an event; this is what true dining looks like. Make a reservation and go early and get a window if possible for the view of sunset and falls will put an exclamation point on the evening.

    For both breakfast and dinner everything we ate in The Salish Dining Room was simply incredible. The Country Breakfast was every bit as scrumptious as it is reputed to be. Don't bother to make lunch plans because you won't be hungry until evening. We had Chauteaubriand for Two for dinner and it was to die for. The meat was so tender you could cut it with a butter knife and the Merlot reduction was absolutely delicious. It was served with Scalloped Potatoes browned to golden perfection--they were the best we had ever eaten, and the service was impeccable.
