    The food is delicious and varied….creative. The glazed Coppa was killer.Kids with narrow pallets might need an assist from the bar menu, though. In the summer…the view….service was Pro but friendly.

    My husband loved his pork dinner. My son and I did not enjoy ours at all. My gnocchi was inedible. The server was friendly but the food took an extremely long time to get to us. Nice view but I don’t think I Would go back again.

    Unfortunately the food was very bland, disappointing for a $150 meal.. Polenta = boring. Gnocchi boring with sloppy spinach and peppers, bland chopped mushrooms. Salmon was ok. Wine = good. Dessert = good. Excellent server/waitress.

    We arrived 9 minutes before our noon lunch reservation. We were not greated, but when advising that we were there for our noon reservation Emily only said you will have to wait then proceeded to ignore us. She didn’t suggest seating while we waited and stood there for several minutes thinking the place must be packed. We saw some seats just past the reception area, so decided that we would wait there. We were seated at noon by someone using a cane and our experience started to change tremendously as she expressed how good of a day she was having and how beautiful the view was out of the windows. She also made sure that our table was good for our party and wished us a good day. The server soon arrived and greeted us providing menus. There was no beverage menu provided so asked for one. We only noticed mix cocktails and bottled beer on the menu, so asked about drafts. We ordered two draft beers. During our dining experience we received no follow up on the water. Two of the meals had a long hair found on the plate with one of the meals (salad) returned for a re-order. The other meal was tolerated (fish & chips) as the hair wasn’t discovered until later in the meal. The food despite the hair was good, but the service and overall experience unfortunately was poor. Also see that the menu has a 3% charge for good service on the menu and feel that this is something that should be called out especially since there appears to be no standard for this.

    Very disappointed. Was seated in a high traffic area even though there were more intimate tables still available. No silverware was on the table initially and also was not given a steak knife to use with my prime rib (had to flag down a different server to get one). Server was inattentive and awkward. Food was okay but not worth the prices. We also had poor service when we ate breakfast in the cascade room that morning.

    I booked reservations SPECIFICALLY for the prime rib on my birthday. We booked at 7:15. All 4 of us were looking forward to it. The waiter said they sold out and that we would of needed an earlier reservation if we wanted prime rib. We opted for other entrees and 2 of the 4 meals were served with cold vegetables. As if they just came out of the refrigerator! Possibly they forgot to heat the potatoes? :( For $185 dinner per couple and my birthday, it was very disappointing. On a good note, breakfast that morning was good.

    There was broken glass next to the chairs, the chairs were dirty and when I asked to move to a different table the waiter said no we don’t do that. He wiped the chair with a wet towel and expected me to sit in the chair when he had just wiped it with a wet cloth. And the waitress never came back and asked us if we were doing ok or wanted anything else. Terrible service and it was my birthday lunch no less.

    Our server Joelene was exceptional. Her deep knowledge of the dinner menu and how each dish was prepared helped us decide which dishes to order. Every dish we tried was delicious. Each & every resort team member we encountered was friendly and had great service hearts. Highly recommend the Skamania Resort as well as the Cascade Dining Room!

    While the food was good, mostly comfort food, I.e., mashed potatoes, gravy, turkey, pasta dishes and salads, etc., it was overpriced for the offerings. I would rather spend the money at a nice upscale restaurant in Portland. Our server, Travis, though was outstanding.

    As guests of Skamania lodge we appreciated the convenience of walking to the dining room. Great food, pro service, nice setting. The mushrooms in wine reduction with blue Cheese was succulent, lamb chops perfectly cooked with delicious sauce, friday night prime rib so tasty. Try the S'mores dessert, double birthday celebration made so special. Party of says 5 out of 5 would eat there again!

    Very disappointed that the Sunday brunch we were anticipating has been discontinued. This was a highly anticipated treat for all of us. The lunch menu wasn't very special for the prices paid. We could have had a brunch in The Dalles for a better value and experience. The view was a saving grace. However, the room was uncomfortablely cold for all in our party. I don't think we would consider a repeat visit.

    We have always wanted to travel the short distance from Portland to Skamania lodge and regretfully didn’t do that until this past weekend. This was one of the best meals I have had in a long time and the most relaxing and pleasant atmosphere you could ever ask for. What an amazing shock to find such a far removed place that makes you feel like you’re on a far away vacation so close to home. We will be back soon and if you haven’t been there yet don’t wait any longer just do it!

    We ate breakfast and dinner at Cascade. Our breakfast was good however the dinner was problematic. We order the mushroom shareable and for our entrees, the Draper chicken dinner and New York strip steak. Our order took a long time (about 25 minutes before getting our shareable appetizer). The mushroom appetizer came in a skillet with toasted bread but half the bread was in the pan so it got soggy from the juice of the mushrooms. The dish lacked flavor. Needed salt and pepper added. We waited another 20 minutes or so after we were done with our appetizer for them to take our plates. As for the entrees the chicken was good however one of the pieces of white meat was very dry. The New York strip was order medium rare but came well done (no pink). I asked the server to have it replaced and she agreed it was over done. She apologized and offered us a free dessert because of the mix up. My husband was over 1/2 done with his chicken entree when my new steak arrived. But this time is was very rare (cold inside /raw) I showed the steak to my server who also agreed it was too rare. She apologized again and said she would remove the entree off our bill and brought a plate of bread and butter on the house.

    $200 meal for two. Glad to spend it, would have happily paid more for celebrating our anniversary. Unfortunately, this restaurant is all show, and no substance. Great communications prior to event. I made reservations three days in advance, and when the email bot asked if I was celebrating a special occasion,I got a little excited that the restaurant might make an effort to make it a spcial event. Instead, from the point of arrival to departure, it was a let down. The hostess quipped that she could make an exception to seat us whew we arrived???? We then got stuffed in a booth with hard backs, next to the noisy kitchen, and absolutely no view. At this point, we were still excited about our celebration, but then, we ordered Moscow mules to drink. They were delivered in glass ware because, and I quote, they ran out of copper mugs. OK, we are still happy to be together and be there. Through the rest of the meal, the waiter apologized for the delay in delivering out hot d our de. Said there was a table mix up. Because we were so close to the kitchen, we had the pleasure of listening to two separate customers coming up to the wait staff and complaining about the service. Kind of dampened our mood. Finally, no mention about our special occasion. If you aren’t going to bring it up at the meal, why ask about it during the reservation time. Greatly disappointed in the restaurant, but still glad I celebrated my anniversary with the most beautiful person I know. Even the restaurant experience couldn’t ruin the special night.

    Food quality wasn’t worth the cost. I had the eggs Benedict(ham was a bit dry, not a lot of sauce), husband had the Skamania breakfast(ok, very simple) and daughter had the fruit bowl. Where we were seated was annoying. The chairs were banquets like chairs, and I think the only table with these chairs, so pretty uncomfortable. Not sure if they were short in chairs, but I would advise an upgrade lol we would have been better off eating at a diner off site.
