The Palm Court Grill continues to serve the highest-quality food at a price that makes fine dining accessible to everyone. Its menu features choice cuts of USDA prime beef and freshly caught fish along with the region's finest wines and select ingredients that sample the bounty of the Northwest.The restaurant's private dining rooms have provided the graceful setting for wedding rehearsal dinners, birthdays, luncheons, and get-togethers for generations of guests. For smaller groups and people watchers, the tables in the historic lobby next to the hearth offer a mix of coziness and palatial grandeur. Meals for every appetite are served throughout the day. The Palm Court Grill also continues to uphold another estimable tradition: the Crab Louis salad, created and made famous nearly a century ago by Chef Edward Mathieu and loaded with tender Dungeness crab, is still served according to the original recipe — with, of course, a dash of contemporary spice.

I love starting my symphony evening at the Palm Court. My biggest issue is that I always use my STCU card and should get one entree free and they have only done that one of the many times I’ve gone there. They need to train the wait staff better regarding this STCU benefit.

As usual, the food, service, and entire dining experience were outstanding. Working our way through the menu and nothing has disappointed.

Came for a birthday dinner. food was great, but service was VERY lacking. Had to keep asking for things: bread, more butter, etc. Ordered coffee with dessert that never showed up, so we had it taken off the menu, but we would have rather liked to have it WITH our dessert! how hard can that be? Coffee should be ready to serve!

Good food if “spendy”. Lovely setting in historic hotel. Close to theaters making dinner prior to events handy. Good selection of seafood and steak, best roasted chicken I have ever eaten.

Service was so poor. Grew up in Spokane. Recommended Spokane to others. This service made me ashamed to ever recommend the restaurant or to reference it to the City.

It was a beautiful location, and even being a few minutes late for our reservation, our table wasn't just given away to the first person who showed up. I will be making this my go to location if I ever have to host something nice for somebody.

The food was good and the service was fine, but the ambiance in the back of the restaurant was terrible, with tables that were too close and glaring overhead lights.

Not as private as we had hoped. The tables are basically in the lobby, separated or roped off offering little privacy. Hotel guests Walk by tables, stand at the second floor landing and look down while you’re eating often taking pics if the fountain. Our table was a few feet away from the fountain and next to the hallway leading to the restrooms, so there was constant noise and distractions through our entire meal. For the price we paid, I would like to have seen booths for each table offering some small level of privacy.

My guest and I went to an early dinner at the Palm Court after the symphony. Always happy to take advantage of their half priced wine bottles during happy hour. Great service and nice to sit in main lobby area near fireplace. My guest ordered the crab and pasta dish. It had a generous amount of crab meat. Sauce was bland to my taste but she enjoyed it. I ordered the sautéed shrimp dish. Asked for no green bell peppers but came with them anyway. Again, sauce was a bland. The bread service is good but wished they offered more rustic bread or sour sour versions.

Very nice decor and atmosphere for a New Year's eve dinner. Appreciated the helpfulness when making the dinner reservation. Food quality was very good, but a little disappointed that when we came back at 9:00PM for dessert and coffee that it was already closed for the evening. Must be difficult to find help these days.

I wanted a special after Christmas breakfast for my daughter, son-in-law and 2 grandchidren, aged 5-1/2 and 3, who came from Southern California for Christmas. We had a table in the lobby next to the fireplace. Everything was ready when we arrived. The waiter was at our table immediately and asked if we would like drinks before we decided on our food choices. Then, the children had an opportunity to explore the 2nd floor. It was magical. We ordered our food and the waiter gratiously divided up the childrens' choices. We were not rushed. All of the adults ordered a breakfast dish with fresh crab - huge chunks and so fresh - just delicious. All of the food choices were well prepared and presented and abundant. It was a special Holiday family time that all of us will remember and try to make an event when family is in town. And, we were able to park our cars at no charge in the covered parking garage - nice bonus. I highly recommend the Davenport for a celebration at anytime of the year, but it is especially grand during the Christmas Holiday season!

We reserved our table ahead of time and were super excited to have Christmas dinner in the lobby. We ended up way in the back side of the restaurant in a Dennys type environment. Our server did not have time to refill our drinks she was so busy. Food was not good and cold. We were not happy.

The Palm Court Grill during the holiday season is the best place to be in Spokane--we love the energy, the ambience, the parade of people in an absolutely perfect holiday setting. Yes, I would and have always recommended the Davenport and the Palm Court Grill to friends, family, and strangers on the street.

Everything was really good the only thing was when we got there they sat us at a dirty table. Then took the setting from the table next to us and put it on our table. We told the lady who sat us that the table was a little dirty she came over with a towel and tried to wipe it. And something wouldn't come off so she licked her finger and rubbed it off. Kinda gross.
