    We were welcomed warmly and seated at a very quiet location by a window with a view of the Falls. Service was excellent as was the food. Fantastic tenderloin and 28 oz. rib-eye steak. I booked in advance and surprised my wife. The staff and Chef acknowledged the special occasion which made the evening that much better. So props to all them for making us feel very special. Most importantly, my wife was thrilled.

    We had a great meal mad a great view. While waiting in the bar upstairs our waitress offered a private balcony off one of their banquet rooms. We watched the sun set, the top of the falls and heard the roar of water as we sipped our wine. Very romantic and quaint.

    Over priced, tiny portions, poor technique. The $32 pasta was gummy and the cream sauce had seperated, my dining partners dinner was well presented but very bland. I also had a salad to start, beautiful market greens that were doused in a bitter dressing swamping any pleasure in eating them. Other diners around us were also not impressed with the food. Our server was good, he needs to take a basic wine course if he's going to handle such a large wine list or the restaurant neeeds to hire someone who knows what ther're talking about. I won't be going back.

    Pun intended! We really enjoyed each aspect of our breakfast meals. The meats were cooked perfectly. The potatoes were not frozen and thrown on a grill. Real potatoes. The omelette was delicious, the biscuits were very good, and the eggs were cooked perfectly. We had a delightful time. Our servers were wonderful and engaging. We would definitely go back.

    The service was excellent. The food was good. I think more could come with the salmon dish. Like asparagus and some rice would be good. It just seemed a little lacking of something. My husband's steak he said was very good. That salad I ordered was overpriced as were the drinks since they were quite small. We thought we would have a better view of the falls and so the view we were a little disappointed on. But again the service was very good.

    After having a breakfast of large proportions (with prices to match) earlier in our stay at the Salish Lodge, we met old friends here for dinner, not knowing what to expect. My wife was relieved to see reasonable portions, artfully presented. The prices are still steep, but her salmon and my halilbut were delicious with excellent accompaniments. My old service buddy also enjoyed the salmon, and his wife was content with the scallops appetizer. The wine list is extensive and well organized. Kudos to the Salish for offering a good selection of half bottles. The service was excellent, non-intrusive but well-paced. We finished a lovely evening by splurging on tasty desserts and pour-over coffees.

    We were staying at the Salish Lodge, so it only made sense to eat at one of the two restaurants on site. We made a reservation for our dinner, but be sure to make a brunch reservation for Sunday mornings too, we had no trouble getting a table on Saturday for brunch, but Sunday they were booked solid! Brunch was fantastic, but huge portions. We had leftovers for our breakfast the next day. Dinner was really nice too, we weren't super hungry so we each got a salad (the beet salad was really interesting and good!) and split an appetizer (but beware, the appetizers are tiny), and then each got a desert. We managed to time our reservation so the sun was setting not long after we sat down, which was a nice surprise. Get a window table if you can!

    We have been regular customers at the Salish Lodge Dining room and I'm sad to say that over the year the place has lost what set it apart from the average restaurant. While the food was good (not fabulous as it used to be) the service was below average and the small touches this restaurant used to do (tableclothes, high end wine glasses, the river rock stones) have all gone by the wayside. It is still a great view restaurant and the food pretty good but not worth what paid for in my opinion.

    I've been to lots of brunch spots in Seattle. Salish Lodge is certainly one of the best. The eggs Benedict were lovely. Served with wonderful, crispy small white potatoes. The pancakes were event better. Light, fluffy and served the maple syrup, honey butter and blubbery compote. The waitress never let our coffee cups get low. The service is as good as the food.

    A private and romantic table overlooking the fabulous Snoqualmie Falls, a highly creative take on dishes renowned in the Northwest, specialty cocktails and extensive wine list, attentive but unobtrusive service, a casual resort atmosphere, friendly, never stuffy ... an extraorinary and unforgettable dining experience! It's hard to believe we aren't exaggerating but truly, we immensely enjoyed our two dinners and two breakfasts at Salish Lodge.

    We pulled in to the lodge and used the valet parking, which was quite easy. The dining room is just steps away from the main entry way so it was an easy walk for my elderly mother. We were a little bit early, but were shown to our table right away. They put us in a lovely, private, little room with a beautiful view of the forest and river below. We ordered the Caesar salad with crab. My mom ordered a glass of their red blend and I ordered a glass of Sauvignon Blanc. The salads were perfectly dressed and the crab fresh and delicious. When we finished lunch they brought my Mom a tiny piece of delicious cake with Happy Birthday on it. We will definitely go back again.

    Beautiful scenery and great setting. Service was exceptional and attentive. The food selection was perfect in that it focused on NorthWest and local sourced foods, not too much to choose from but enough to suite any taste. That means the effort into each meal is at an exceptional level of detail. Chef Snook made a fantastic evening even better - Thanks

    Belgian Waffle, with nothing on the side..17 bux? Bland flavor, and tasteless maple syrup. The honey on the table was better than the cinnamon whip cream or maple syrup. Biscuits and gravy was heavy and made with beef not sausage. Biscuits are tasty, but the rest I could skip. Wont do brunch again. Ill try dinner perhaps, but not rushing back. Take the hike to the falls instead..

    We had out of town family visiting us for the first time, and we always take our guests to The Salish for breakfast if they have never been there before. I have to say I enjoyed the food more when it was the Snoqualmie Falls Lodge. But the views are still great and we enjoyed walking around afterwards to see the falls from different angles, as well as the electric power plants (from a distance).

Atmosphere was nice, window view was nice but lunch menu disappointed. May be dinner is where the choices are.

    The restaurant was so romantic and the food was very yummy. The hostess was so accommodating (she let us sit by a window when we asked) and the waitress was so nice (she made sure we got all that we needed). My husband got the classic breakfast (so simple, yet delicious) and I got the salmon skillet (to die for!). The best part was the biscuits, which were fluffy and buttery.

    My husband and I just celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary and although we had originally planned to have dinner in Seattle, the construction situation had us change our mind to stay on the eastside. And we're happy we did. Salish Lodge Dining Room is a totally lovely experience for a special occasion meal. They knew it was our anniversary and put us in a secluded separate area by the window with a beautiful view outside. The food was absolutely excellent and our service was terrific. The evening was a lovely experience for both of us. Thank you!

    We went on an early hike close by and made a reservation for brunch at Salish Lodge afterwards. Probably ate all of the calories we burnt off during the hike but it was well worth it!. Everything was fantastic, particularly the oatmeal and salmon skillet stir fry (not sure what it was called on the menu but it had potatoes, salmon, eggs and goat cheese). And the biscuits with honey were incredible..

    We went to Salish Lodge for our 15th Anniversary. I mentioned at the time of the online booking that we were celebrating our Anniversary. When we arrived we waited 10-15 min to be seated but it was worth it because they got us a table with a nice view overlooking the falls. The server was pleasant. We had some dietary restrictions which they accomodated and made substitutes. The food was delicious and you tell the freshness of the meats and the veggies.Overall it was a very enjoyable experience.We will go back again.
