Horrible front desk staff. Poor ventilation. Our clothes smelled of fish at the end.

For an upscale restaurant, the food was as expected but not over the top "wow!" Service and staff were awesome! Atmosphere was great. Drinks however, have had far better at chains.

Go during the early bird specials, less crowded and good value. Excellent salad bar, even during virus.

the clam chowder and salad bar was the best thing about the night.Drinks were good prices were reasonable. But the entree was disappointing. Small portions and poor quality. Was not like advertised in lobby of hotel. It was the only regret on a wonderful stay.

The restaurant was very unique, the lobster tail my wife had was unbelievably big and the salmon that I had was wonderful. It was a great experience and I would definitely go back if I’m in the area.

My daughters and I had a lovely family dinner and enjoyed the views of the lake, we ate out on the patio and it was so pleasant. The food was delicious and service efficient and prompt.tables were placed at least 6 feet apart and all staff wore masks to protect against the virus. It was a lovely meal.

You are basically only going for the ambiance. We had the salmon. It was incredibly dry and over salted. We also had filet and lobster. The filet was so over cooked, it tasted like it was microwaved.

Cold entree. Had to ask for another. Second serving of salmon was hot but overcooked, dry. 20 years ago the food was great. This time, it’s a tourist trap. Would not return

Salmon on a plank was yummy! So was salad bar! Service excellent! FYI: plan ahead & make your reservation days ahead of your arrival. Best salad bar & outdoor dining in Spokane/CdA area.

Our only comment is that servers, etc. were wearing masks but some had them under their nose which seems to defeat the purpose.

Our server, Scott, however, had his covering nose and mouth. These are strange times but try to adhere to common sense rules.

Food, drink and service were great.

I went there with family for a birthday dinner. Employees wore masks; a few had them only over their mouth and one under her chin. Salad bar was behind plexiglass with a server. Zero social distancing and restaurant was packed. Most patrons did try to observe social distancing and wore masks until they ate. I ordered soup instead of salad bar; clam chowder with uncooked potatoes. No apologies or adjustments, just told they turned the heat up on the soup. We had prime rib, generous portion and delicious. I had salmon. tiniest piece I’ve ever had anywhere but was good. Waitress was friendly; asked why we didn’t get any rolls with out dinner and she told us “you have to ask for those”. Asked for bacon bits and chives on the baked potato but didn’t get that either, or butter; only sour cream. The noise level made the dining unpleasant. I won’t go back. I grew up here with Cedars and it was THE place to go at one time.

I always get the scallops and the chef makes me a lemon butter sauce for them instead of a Gorgonzola sauce. It’s delicious!

Our first trip to CDA. Eating at Cedars was a great experience. We chose to come for the early dinner special (you have to ask for the menu). Our server was friendly and helpful. We chose prime rib and we were not disappointed...it was delicious. I chose the salad bar and received a generous portion. We will definitely come back.

Was a fun dining experience! Beautiful water views. The service was excellent! The food was pretty good however they rave about their Prime Rib...... nothing to write home about. We did enjoy the rest of our meal.

The food, drinks, and service were excellent. The idea of having your salad made at the salad bar is safe serving method.

Set a reservation days prior to going here and got stuck next to the kitchen, which was loud but the entire place is loud and over crowded. We also received terrible service from our waitress who slammed our plates down, was slow in receiving our orders, and seemed to not to care for us or notice us at all. The ahi tuna was not near the price point it was given and was not fresh nor cooked properly.

In short - If you’re looking for good seafood at affordable price this isn’t your place. The views are great but otherwise try another place in town.
