  • Our experience at dining at
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 6/22/2009
    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.

    The food was good. The waiters were attentive. One person did not get her food since the order was apparently 'lost' and had to wait. The waiter brought fruit for her while she waited which was very nice. The restaurant did not charge for her meal which was also nice and appropriate. We would come back again.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 6/20/2009
    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.

    We had the Chateaubriand served at our table and it was excellent. The only thing I was disappointed with was there was no view of the falls from our table and as others had written they had rose petals, private room and Happy Anniversary written on their plate for desert when they had mentioned it was their anniversary ahead of time. We recieved none of the above... a little disappointing BUT the food and service was outstanding.

    I had mentioned in my reservations that it was our 25th Wedding Anniversary. When we arrived for our reservation dinner time we were taken to a quiet little cove area separated from the rest of the restaurant and overlooking the falls area. Our table was covered with red rose petals. Our server was wonderful and very attentive to all our needs. The best food was the "Hot Rocks" made right at your table. Our dessert plates had "Happy 25th Anniversary" written in chocolate across them. They really did an awesome job at making our evening very special. All the wait staff were very knowledgeable in their specific areas.

    KimmieVIP
    Dined on 5/28/2009
    Two entrees and an appetizer were ordered at the Salish Lodge for lunch. The appetizer, a dungeness crab cake, was very good. I believe the flavors of the crab cake would have been better with the meyer lemon aioli on the side. The two entrees, the herb crusted Idaho trout and the grill ahi tuna were good, as well. The ahi tuna was served with couscous. It tastes better with rosemary roasted potatoes or rice (ask for substitution). The herb crusted trout had a nice flavor but a tad salty. The server did a great job in being attentive. The overall experience was very good.

    I took my friend for her birthday brunch. We got a window seat and the view was great! I love their coffee. It comes with not only sugar and cream, but also comes with whipped cream and shaved chocolate. Servers were friendly, but provide excellent service. I mentioned today was my friend's birthday, and later floor mamager(I think) brought some chocolate truffle plate for her! It's the best restaurant I've ever been, and I definately recommend to other people!

    The only issue I had with the restaurant was that they put us in a room htat had constant air blowing on me the whole time. The first time I had mentioned it I was told that there was nothing that could be done. When I finally couldn't take it any more my husband spoke to the main person in charge (maitre d') who then moved us to another room.

    We had reservations for 6 weeks and reconfirmed that day. At dinner we were surprised to learn that they took walk ins for the window tables, and we were relegated to a dark interior table. We saw a couple with drinks only sit at the window for 2 hours. Why reserve? The vegetarian selections were uniformly poor. Oversalted polenta, and tough asparagus. Food was not memorable or delicious. Can't imagine wanting to eat there again.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2004
    Dined on 5/10/2009
    Our party of four enjoyed the prix fixe brunch menu choices of the classic Railroad Avenue and Poached Eggs Dungeness selections. We were slightly disappointed that the "Honey from Heaven" service was not performed on this occasion nor was the famous "oatmeal" a menu option on this day. Our server was a bright and cheerful young University student who was very attentive except for keeping our coffee cups full. It seemed apparent that the order of the day was not to encourage any lingering diners on this busy occasion. The overall experience was certainly worthy of a Mother's Day special occasion even though it seemed a bit diminished from the memories of past breakfasts at the Snoqualmie Falls Salish Lodge.

  • I went to the Salish a couple

    Dined on 5/10/2009
    I went to the Salish a couple years ago for their country breakfast and was very impressed by the quality and quantity of the food. After my last experience I figured that it would be an excellent place for Mother's Day but was very disappointed. What used to be a 4 course country breakfast is now 2.5 courses at best and for $15 more then I paid a couple years ago. The fruit and pastries they served as the first course was barley enough for a party of 4 let alone a party of 8. The pancakes for the second course were flat and dense. The 3rd course was the biscuit, eggs and hash browns which were decent. All that being said, the serving staff was very accommodating and pleasant and the ambiance was very nice. All that being said

    The evening was a weddind anniversary dinner celebration. I had made reservations ahead, noting this fact. They gave us a private room overlooking the falls. They had spread rose petals over our table. It was a beautiful surprise. The timing was perfect (6:30) so we were able to see the falls with some sun and then fade to nightfall sunset through the dinner. It was a lovely dinner and the restaurant took our occassion to heart. Thank you.

    Although there were certain touches that made the meal special, the food was really greasy and certainly not worth the price. The fresh fruit used to be a highlight, we didn't get any berries, just a tiny bowl of pieces of melon. There are a lot of places on the water that have brunch for $20 with fresh salmon etc that far exceed this meal and portions are unlimited. If they're going to cut back on portions and extras then the price should also be cut. A very over-rated restaurant.

Our table was adorned with rose petals, candles, and river rock, and we were promptly greeted by the sommelier with complimentary champagne. The food was wonderful, the service was impeccable, and the view was beautiful. The entire evening we were treated like royalty, and even our dessert had "Happy Anniversary" written on it in chocolate. We will definitely be returning for more.

    The prix fixe Easter menu was insanely overpriced ($45 for breads, pancakes and one of three entree options). Granted, you don't go to Salish for value, you go for a measure of luxury and an amazing view. But charging so much for so little just put a sour taste in my mouth. If I choose to go again, I'll make sure to visit when there's not a prix fixe.

    We were seated in a little alcove looking out over the beautiful view of the falls and hills. Although it was very beautiful, it was a little strange being seated outside of the main dining area. Easter brunch was a set menu and some items were fine; pancakes, eggs, coffee. The food as a whole was really poor. I ordered ham which was some sort of pressed ham product, it was definitely not baked ham. The herbed potatoes were slimy and soggy. In the end we had a great time staying at the lodge, it really is a beautiful place and service is friendly and welcoming. The dining room is overpriced and the quality is not up to par with the lodge itself.
