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.

We ordered a rib steak medium rare that came out medium well amd the halibut was raw in the center. Both were sent back and recooked properly. No apology or additional compensation was offered. Chef had visited other guests but never talked to us.

The only thing that wasn't excellent was once we paid our check the server never came back around to verify we didn't need anything. We sat for about another 15 minutes before finally leaving the facility. Overall great experience for a large group.

This place is a must for Spokane. The lunch menu includes a grilled cheese and tomato bisque that is to die for!! Was in town for a meeting and out of 12 of us, 9 ordered it and everyone LOVED it. Their French dip sandwich is also phenomenal. Definitely check it out. Service is great as well

Wonderful food and service; great atmosphere but friendly too. Large menu with fair prices considering the quality of the place. Happy hour bar prices are a bargain. And it's quiet enough to have a conversation. One of our faves in Spokane.

We love sitting in the lobby of the Davenport for just coffee and for dinner when we are in town. The ambience is beyond compare. The food and service is always excellent. It is one of our favorite dining places downtown.

Had the USDA Prime Filet. It was delicious! The next day had USDA Prime Filet at a place well known steak house in Bellevue, WA that charges more than double and is known for having amazing steak. My steak at the Davenport was MUCH better. Great ambience, good drinks, everything was just lovely :)

Until now, i've never had a bad experience at Palm Court. It almost seemed like they have cut back on their employees, especially the wait staff. It took a long time to get waited on/served. Then, when we got the food, it was pretty bland and lukewarm. I was very dissapointed this time. I hope this is an aberration, and not the new norm.

Waitress was inattentive and all seemed delayed. We received our pre dinner cocktails with the meal. The bussers were great. Dishes were removed timely and I was able to get additional water. My food was not as tasty as the price should indicate. The reason I would recommend this restaurant would be for the setting. I love the Davenport.

We have had great meals and service in the past.I have to say this time the service and food was way below our past experiences. The food was cold and not served as ordered.
The manager did reduce the bill but that is not why we go to the palm court grill.We are not looking for a cheap meal.We are looking for a great meal and dinning experience.

Only issue was that food, other than the main dish such as Halibut and Steak, was cold. Not enough to send back but definitely cold. We told the waitress and assume she passed it on to the kitchen.

Otherwise the dinner was great and of course the Hotel is just wonderful. Great job with the renovation.

Beautiful, renovated hotel restaurant with tables surrounding a wood burning fireplace in the main lobby. Delicious food and drinks. Loved the French dip, made with thin slices of prime rib. Saveroom for a sundae though! Great for couples or groups.

Went for a birthday lunch and would go again for any special occasion. Had the salmon fettuccini and prime rib sub. Both were good portions and delicious! Got to seat ourselves and was fairly busy. Took a little bit to get service, but once the waitress came we got fast friendly service. Overall a great experience!

Don’t order beef at this restaurant. Even the most expensive cuts are tough - almost inedible. They must source their meats from the cheapest vendor.
The sides generally were good. The wine list was limited but adequate.
The servers are not well trained, or knowledgeable about the food or drink. This doesn’t speak well of the management’s commitment to providing a fine dining experience.
They advertise this to be a high-class restaurant, but I’ve had better meals (meat) at the local diner.
That being said, the Palm Court is grossly overpriced for the value delivered.

My guest and I enjoyed a lovely pre-symphony dinner at the Palm Court. Chose the restaurant area close to the bar so we could watch the Zags but the area in the lobby much nicer. I got a martini and my guest ordered a bottle of wine. Both value priced at half price since it was happy hours. My guest started with a Caesar salad and thought it was excellent. She then had a crab cake and thought it was well done and not overly bready. I had the salmon pasta. Salmon perfectly done although a rather small portion. Pasta and sauce were outstanding and pasta even tasted house made. Good server helped us though the meal.

I truly miss the Early Bird Special that you use to offer. I loved the small dishes and several courses. My favorite thing about eating at the Davenport, is eating in the lobby. The ambience is fantastic!

My dinner was very good, and the service was excellent. My only complaint is that you don't serve Coke on your menu. Although, I know that you serve Coke on your room service menu, so if I ask they will serve me Coke. I just wished that I didn't have to ask. Coke is better.

We had a wonderful evening. We went to the Davenport for a birthday dinner and they had a table reserved by the fire. Mary, our server, is always outstanding and had a special little gift on the table. She is the best! I had the tenderloin, perfectly cooked, and my husband had the chicken, which was delicious. Always a great place for a special occasion!

As we were seated, the host recommended the pork ribeye for the main. Our server appeared and took our drink order just a tad before getting our menu selections. This was at 6 pm on Saturday night. As was recommended I ordered the pork, and my companion ordered short ribs. After our paired wines were brought, the server stated that they were running out of the pork (at 6 PM?) and he would put in our selections at once. He later returned and said he thought all was well, but wanted to know my alternate choice. I selected the 3rd offered main, cioppino but asked for an update as to our progress. The next time we saw him was half an hour later when he delivered an almost inedible cioppino to my place setting. He scurried away before we could address the wine issue, and did not return until our desserts had been presented. Which meant that he missed my companion being given the wrong dessert. Now, about the cioppino: the best I can say for it is that it was not hot. Barely warm. Also flavorless, barely nutritious, presented with empty mussel shells, flavorless fish bits, a few recently defrosted calamari rounds and drowned in an unseasoned sauce that had recently been poured from a jar. The final insult was the lack of a dish for discarded shells -- a neat way of preventing one from assessing the dish's contents. Mind you, this was not even the dish that I had ordered!!! And it wasn't something that should even have been on the table of two people who had spent 30 years in South Philley. I would seriously like an explanation as to why one of the 3 recommended dishes for restaurant week would be unavailable at 6 PM on a Saturday night as the restaurant was just beginning to fill -- and why it would be recommended by a seating host when it was already unavailable......

We were excited to visit the Palm Grill for restaurant week, but were disappointed when
1. were told there was no more pork tenderloin
then after ordering and having out salads
2. there were only 2 short ribs left, but 3 of us had ordered it.
so.......
there was no choice left on restaurant week except the cioppino or order off menu.
Short ribs were good, but our person ordering off menu was really disappointed.
Seems like the kitchen should have been more on top of quantity and ordered more pork tenderloin in!
