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.

The waiter that we had was amazing, probably the best waiter that we've ever had at this restaurant. He was very attentive, friendly, professional, helpful, and my entire family was impressed with the service that we received. We went to celebrate Father's day and Graduation day together. He also remembered what we were celebrating. He went above and beyond to speak with the chef when I told him about all my food allergies.

Excelent! The ambience is wonderful with comfortable chairs and big tables. The decoration and the salon is the highest point. Service amazing.
Food very good. Berry salad delicious, real crab cake and prime rib at the exact way I ordered. If I have opportunity I certainly I will go be back as well stay in the hotel.

What was the need for OpenTable? We were never asked if we had a reservation, if we has a special occasion-nothing. So our birthday dinner was good, service was OK, but nothing to rave about.

First time using the Palm Court for a breakfast meeting I had with a group from out of town, they were staying at the Davenport so it made it easy to meet there. 3 of us had the Crab Omelette and it was outstanding. Came with perfectly done hash browns and toast. I had made reservations for 9am, but we actually were able to just seat ourselves wherever we wanted (it was a Thursday morning) and chose a table near the back to allow for talking business while we ate. Waitress was attentive and kept our coffee's filled...I was pleasantly surprised as I knew I would be. I recommend this place for breakfast meetings, or anytime you want a great breakfast in a historic hotel.

Fantastic prime rib -- the best I've had in years, fork tender with very tasty vegetable mix. But, come early if you really want rare (not medium rare). They have happy hour in all bars from 4 - 6 with half price on ALL drinks. That tends to draw a crowd and some stay over for dinner afterwards. Salads and appetizers are also great in either the dining room or the bars. Prices were reasonable, especially after eating in equivalent restaurant venues in Seattle this week.

We came here for a college graduation dinner. The food was excellent and the service equally good. The variety of the menu allowed for everyone to find a dish they would enjoy. Highly recommended!

Again, like always an excellent meal. This time it was the Signature Salad, and the petite Prime Rib. IK asked for into be medium side and it turned out just right. The au jus and horseradish were perfect as always and to accompany it all, a nice glass of Arbor Crest Merlot. The wine was the only thing that gave me problems and I think it was more body reflex than the wine itself, as Merlot is one red I can drink without problems. Anyway, at least the 'almost gagging' did not get on my tux shirt. While I'm usually not crazy about my vegetables and potatoes being buried under the meat, it works beautifully with the Palm Court meals. One thing I like with prime rib is being able to dip into horseradish and this means everything. The few veggies I dipped were enhanced and still tasted real good.
Also, the service was top-notch and plenty of attention was paid so it wasn't a surprise. It's like the staff knows when to see to their tables and when not to.
Maybe next Symphony season, I can extend the pleasurable meal to include desert and we'll get to see how the Apple Crip tastes. As always though, I love coming here when I'm dressed in a tux and the staff usually sees this as a good sign. It paid off last Sunday as I didn't have to wait long although somehow my reservation was somehow not called up or something. Overall, I love that the historic Davenport Hotel wraps this place and that people like it for this reason. A good spot for good dining without lots of added attraction-a good meal and good dependable service.

The Palm Court Grill at the Historic Davenport is a rare gem, created over a century ago, and thankfully preserved for future generations! The interior ambiance is unprecedented! Although it is 400 miles away from home, I finally planned a visit, and was not disappointed! Oh, and the food; it was good too! I missed the fact that valet parking is included for free, with $25 purchase! A bonus, for next time!

Every time I take colleagues or business people there, it is for the beauty of the venue. But the food always disappoints.... always cold or takes forever. They seem disorganized in terms of the floor management. The last time we went we had a reservation, 2 hours ahead of the symphony, and we had to leave without ever receiving our dinner. The waiter kept apologizing, but the floor manager seemed to regard us and other guests with disdain when we explained we had ordered dinner at 6:30pm, and at 7:45, with no meal, we had to leave. no compensation...no apologies. Bizarre presentation from your staff at such a lovely venue.

Very disappointed, been there several times and it was very good before. Out of the 5 meals only one was good, the crab cakes. Half off beer and wine was good but that's about it. Salmon over cooked, vegetables were lukewarm. I ordered the salmon fettuccine and got a piece of king salmon. I should have sent it back. Fish and chips dry and over cooked. Prime rib dip was a sloppy mess after the aujus was spilled over the plate soaking the bread. Did they have the "B" team in the kitchen? Very disappointing and we'll dine someplace else in the future. Our server was Joseph.

My husband and I had reservations for Mother’s Day brunch. At check in the hostess had to keep asking my name and if we had a reservations which we did. It was annoying because they did not bother to read the request to sit by a window and wanted to know if we wanted to sit by the fireplace while it was at least 75+ degrees outside. We did get a booth by a window but it was next to the bar which was not great. The waitress seemed pre-occupied with conversations with other staff rather than wait on people. She did disappear at times when we wanted refills on coffee and water. The food was great and we had eaten brunch there before on Easter weekend so chose to come for Mothets Day brunch. It seemed that a lot of the staff was busy having personal conversations with each other than paying ayyention to clients which we thought was odd. The people at the podium check in seemed very disorganized and we did not feel that our waitress was very focused on meeting our needs. The food is great so we will return but hope that they pay more attention to clients next time around. Our waitress at Easter Brunch was outstanding but on Mother’s Day they missed the mark.

After waiting nearly 30 minutes after sitting down just to be acknowledged, hard to imagine in an establishment built on fine service, but it went downhill from there.

I could go on and on about the pathetic experience we had and the way our server / management dealt with it - and to be clear if we hadn’t had the typical impeccable service the place is known for, we’d never come back - it was that bad.

We came to experience the restaurant's "Titanic Dinner," a five-course meal served as the final dinner on the doomed liner. We dressed in our period clothing to make the event more memorable, but ended up getting the poorest restaurant service we've had in any recent memory. We arrived at 6:00, were seated at 6:05, and we were served our dessert course at 8:30 pm. We sat without service for 35 minutes between the salad and fish courses, and then 45 minutes between the fish and main courses. We did receive a refill of our water, and an unapologetic explanation that they were quite busy with a "large party." The food was good but barely warm when served, and we were quite hungry between courses. We will not dine there again and cannot recommend it. What a shame that a premier restaurant in such a beautiful and landmark setting is so poorly managed.

As the Spokane symphony was having their last Classics Concert of the season, I thought it would be a good thing to dine out before. The Palm Court is close to the theatre and the food is always good. Also, I believe they love to see folks come in dressed to the 'nines' as I was that evening (I ALWAYS wear a tuxedo to the Symphony or any classical concert). But service was timely, the food was delivered on time and the only minor complaint I had was the wine I ordered was a bit late, but showed up before all was said and done. Servers and Hostess/Host did not interfere with my dining and were only concerned with how things were going-food good etc. Overall, I have no bad things to say re: the service or the food. In fact, I will highly recommend them. I only hope the experience is just as good this Sunday after the Youth Symphony concert. (on my visit before this-April 25-I was privileged to see a whole group of formally dressed young people dining before the Soiree upstairs to which we all were headed) Maybe I'll even see some of the Youth Symphony members dining with their parents. Overall, it will be a pleasant way to end a great week of music themed events.

The Palm Court is always good, i really enjoy the food. One of the best parts is it is close to entertainment venues, within walking distance. Its my go-to choice when I am going to watch a concert at the nearby venues.

The service is great, so I hope this review will get the folks that work there a pat on the back

A great historic hotel.We have been here several times before. This time it wasn't up to the standard we have come to expect. The halibut in my fish and chips was great,moist and tender with slender crispy fries. The coleslaw was not fit to eat,the cabbage tasted like it was dumped out of a bag and the dressing was tasteless. My wife's salmon was a little dry and overly seared on one side,while the huckleberry sauce was tasty. A bright spot in her meal were the vegetables that were cooked to perfection. We shared a creme brulee that had a wonderful flavor but a rather soft consistency. When we pay a premium price for our meal we expect outstanding dining.

We were there for the Titanic 5-course Dinner on the Titanic sinking anniversary; however, when we arrived, we were informed they had run out. I was not happy, but was hungry, so we stayed for dinner. The wait staff were very pleasant and everyone, including us, made the best of the situation. What we did end up ordering was cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. The ambiance is elegant but casual. This could have been a disappointing occasion given that the meal we'd reserved for a special occasion wasn't available, but the quality of the food and professional friendliness of the staff left us with a wonderful impression of the place.

They failed to measure up to any standard of expectation for a business with their reputation. Every single thing from reservation to service to food was a great disappointment. I fall to understand how they have a good reputation. I had a great opinion of them until now; they are worse than mediocre. Running on their reputation only I guess.
