    The ordering process was extremely confusing. For breakfast the waiter quickly read 15 options, and there was no menu available. We ended up getting eggs and potatoes for $50 / 2 people.

    Booked online so we would have a reservation. Little did we know we would have to walk a ways to get to the restaurant (so it was raining and were soaked/ not to mention little path lighting) Walked in, and waited, waited to be seated at our reserved table. Finally got sat and the menu was handed to us and waitress left. No prices on the food menu we were curious how much dinner was going to be, so we finally asked. $45.00 a plate- per person- we were already there and seated so we decided to stay. First the bread- best part of the meal unfortunately. Then the platter to share- it was ok, soup was barley warm, then TWO choices. Hope you like one of the two, if not you were out of luck! The sides were veggies- which tasted burned and raw at the same time. The last was dessert. It was nice, enough for a toddler maybe. The size was about a 50 cent coin. Again, disappointing. Along the way we got more service from the lady cleaning the tables than our server. Our server visit other tables much more often and ignoring us. Will never go back, nor will be stay on site either. Writing so others don’t make this same mistake we did. Go elsewhere, better food and lower prices.

    Kingfisher has excellent food and the service is amazing. They usually have food served buffet style, but due to covid it is table side service. The food is fresh and unique. You will not leave hungry. We really enjoyed Matthew as our waiter so much that we sat in his section for breakfast the next day.

    Do NOT eat here unless you're staying here and it's your only option. Food ranges from good to absolutely horrible. Our server was grossly unqualified and no one was training her. First, she had on massive amounts of perfume...any scent is a big NO in food service. We ordered a sparkling rose' to start, but she brought us 2 glasses of an unknown rose' wine, then argued with us about what we ordered when we asked her to bring us the correct drinks which she finally did! Next, we were ABSOLUTELY SHOCKED to learn this place only serves a BUFFET dinner...NOT at all clear from the online description which makes it sound like a chef's tasting menu. Due to COVID rules, our "server" would fill our plates for us. For the "appetizer," she said they had crackers, meat and bean dip and recommended "a little of everything." The cold bean dip was nasty. The burrata with figs and balsamic was a welcome surprise! For dinner, she could only say our food options were "Sal-man, pork, potato, and veg-it-table peppers." She could not answer ANY questions and we're again advised to have "a little of everything." The salmon was fresh and cooked appropriately but without any seasoning or sauce. The pork seemed like it came from a Hormel package and had a watered down, oddly red "plum" sauce. The unseasoned roasted potatoes were barely cooked. The vegetables were a very burnt and very mushy pile of broccoli, bell peppers, and onions. I don't think a dog would have eaten it. Truly disgusting! I CANNOT believe any restaurant would serve that...ever. Desert ("a little of everything") was all mediocre and not worth eating. Luckily, they have a nice wine list...we were given the correct bottle of wine which we enjoyed while looking at the gorgeous scenery and being very happy with each other's company. The wine list and the burrata/figs/balsamic saved them from zero stars.

    My wife and I want to recognize our waiter, Hans, how made our evening memorable. Business was obviously very slow but Hans made our time so enjoyable. The wasabi steak was excellent. We were located near the large fireplace and asked Hans if we could dance (something we have done before when at the restaurant). Hans moved tables and chairs to create a space for us to dance and also asked us what music we'd like. He made it happen. We have always enjoyed our times at Kingfisher but this was the most special for us as couple. Thank you for a lovely experience.

    This was our seventh visit to Sleeping Lady (and probably our tenth to the Kingfisher Restaurant and Wine Bar). Each visit is a treat. The food is exceptional; the chef and staff craft varied, imaginative and well balanced menus-there is something to please any palate. The preparation is excellent. The decor is beautifully done and comfortable, and the servers are friendly and consistently take all possible steps to make certain guests feel welcome with their needs met.

    Good service, good food, good location, good presentation, would definitely suggest it was not buffet food. It was way above buffet level. Had 8 people at the table, and not one complaint. we represented three different age groups. Even the youngest( age 14) who only likes chicken or pizza ate Leg of lamb, sweet potatoes, and halibut and went back for seconds. That was a surprise even for his folks. It was worth the price for our special 80th birthday celebration.

    Our expectations were high and we were all disappointed with the variety of food. The earliest table we could reserve was 930 am and we expected brunch but we got buffet breakfast that was mediocre. The wait staff cleaned up and put all the hot buffet food away by 10:30. We were busy socializing and did not have time to go back for our fill. At $30 plus per person, I was expecting more.

    I had dinner at the Kingfisher on a very quiet Sunday night. I was one of only 3 people in the restaurant! What is normally a large buffet was pared down considerably, but I was offered portions of all 3 main dishes and able to partake of an excellent salad and dessert bar. The service was excellent and the quality of the food outstanding.

    First, prices are not posted anywhere so we experienced quite the sticker shock at $45/person! We dined on a Sunday evening/holiday so the buffet was not stocked. Instead we were offered table-service of whatever we wished to order that would have been on the buffet. The food is "upper crust" and beautifully presented, but arrived lukewarm. The salad bar had limited selections, and the dessert cakes were dense and heavy. We enjoyed the quiet restaurant and our wait staff was personable, but we did not feel we received a great value for our meal.

    From arriving to our departure we had a wonderful time. The chef prepared an amazing assortment of dinner choices. We were able to sample all three entries, a variety of vegetables and multiple deserts. Arron our server was excellent. He explained the choices, got our wine, an attended to us through out the evening. Arron was so knowledge, attentive, with a great sense of humor and helpful. I have no reservations recommending the Kingfisher Restaurant.

    We had a fantastic anniversary dinner at Kingfisher this week. The buffet-style service was a little unusual but our waiter, Hans was very thorough in explaining the evenings buffet selections, food preparation, and answered any questions we had. Hans used to work at the Kent Stowell restaurants in Seattle but relocated to the Leavenworth area for the slower pace. Great waiter! You've never seen a salad bar like this. One of the salads was a very unique seaweed and squid combination that was fantastic. And the miso soup prepared by sous chef Ryan was subtle and very flavorful without being too salty. There were options for a meat entrée, fish (salmon) and vegetarian. I've had better salmon but the steak was very tender (prepared medium) was and complemented with a great horseradish sauce. Overall our meal was excellent. I highly recommend Kingfisher at Sleeping Lady in Icicle Canyon/Leavenworth.

    The food at Kingfisher is outstanding. Only Mana and Watershed in Leavenworth are on same plane food-wise. Yet Kingfisher is not well known as it is on the grounds of the Sleeping Lady Resort about 3 miles out of town. It is primarily the dining room for guests at the resort, but making an Open Table reservation will get you in without being a resort guest. The dining room is beautiful, with a lodgy ambience and overlooks the Icicle River flowing nearby. The quirky part is that the food is served buffet style. You will have a friendly local as your server, but will serve yourself at the salad, main course and dessert stations. But this is the best buffet food you will ever have -- gourmet quality with lots of local ingredients, including vegetables and herbs grown in the one acre herb garden on the property (open to the public to walk through) Wine list is good, with a number of local selections included. Not as extensive as the list at Visconti's, but well-curated. Prices are not cheap - the food is gourmet and you are eating at a resort property after all. But it is definitely worth heading out Icicle Road to try Kingfisher. One nice benefit is that the resort is generally less crowded than town - Kingfisher is a great alternative when the in-town restaurants are full.

    A good experience to go with the ambience of Sleeping Lady Resort. The food is buffet style and includes vegetarian options. It is a bit pricey but worth staying on the property for dinner. Our server was great: warm, personable and professional. The view overlooking the Sleeping Lady herself and Icicle Creek, including the Chihuly art was great. We ate at Kingfisher two nights in a row and were happy!
