It’s a great value for the quality of the food and the bottomless mimosas. Our waiter was busy and couldn’t get to us as often as we would’ve liked (it took a while to get our hot water for tea). Normally the service is spot-on.

First time for us at the Davenport Thanksgiving Buffet. Quite the spread. Seated quickly, and the buffet rules were laid out for us. First round - the appetizer and salad table...really good with jumbo shrimp and crab, nice salad and dressings, ahi poke and seared ahi, and much more. Round 2 was the main dinner fare, and the selections were diverse and well prepared. Started with sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, succotash, and dressing. Then green beans, pork belly, braised beef, halibut fillet, and turkey, ham, and prime rib cutting stations. The food was kept heated and was pretty darn tasty. The prime rib was too rare for me, should have asked for an end cut. Round 3 desserts was just too much for us - we grabbed a few bites of the large selection, and called it a draw. Dinner seems a bit pricey but honestly I spend more to cook my own turkey dinner on Thanksgiving than this dinner cost for me and my wife and son. The Isabella Room has a nice look, but the room took on a cafeteria like din with all the people in the room - it was quite boisterous, but every one was having a good time. Navigating between tables can be tricky considering the proximity of tables and chairs to each other. Definitely will go again next time its just us three. Good food and lots of it for a decent price in a fun and celebratory atmosphere!

Thanksgiving, 5:00 p.m. They RAN OUT OF TURKEY. The dress code was apparently HEE HAW. Overlit, cold buffet room, crowded tables, too many children running amok. Never again....

The meal was good but is very expensive. I didn’t like where we were seated but we were not accommodate with a different placement even though we asked for a different table. There were many other tables available. Service was friendly for the most part. We did have one staff member come and start to pickup service at our table even though 4 of us had been seated. When we told the staff to leave the service and why she just looked at us but eventually left.

The service was excellent but the food was really bad. Meats were moist but I can't name a single side dish or sauce that was seasoned properly. The ballroom is beautiful (lighting was way too bright though) and our server Mary was exceptional, but the culinary situation was unfortunate.

Great Thanksgiving meal—-great variety of cold/appetizers/salads/fruit and cheese; remarkable mix of entrees and side dishes and too many desserts to choose from. Everything outstanding...shrimp and crab, unlimited trips to buffet. Loved the no host Bloody Mary bar with many add ones, from asparagus, cukes, shrimp, olives. Didn’t know about complimentary mimosas or sparkling wine with meal. Excellent, unrushed, charming service. Lovely big band recorded music in background....lots of fun, delicious, can’t beat atmosphere of the historic Davenport. It’s a memorable dining experience!

Thanksgiving buffet was a wonderful experience. The quality and choice of food displayed was superior to any in spokane. They did not miss one holiday item. The diners were all pleasant and happy to celebrate thanksgiving at there own private table. The beauty of the Davenport's banquet room needs no other decorations. The service was friendly and spot-on. Spokane is fortunate to have the Davenport.

The food and service was excellent. Our server was very attentive to provide refills for wine, coffee or mimosa. The ambience in this exquisite hotel is nothing but exemplary. This historic hotel is Spokane's crown jewel and we are so lucky it was preserved for all to enjoy. The Thanksgiving Buffet was held in one of the beautiful ballrooms. The menu had turkey, ham, prime rib and halibut and any side dish you could wish for. The salad bar had crab, shrimp and many beautiful presentations of sushi, caviar and salmon bites. After all of that the dessert bar was everything chocolate with a chocolate fountain and much more. See dessert pic.

Overall it was a way over priced disappointment! There should have been more traditional items and less gross caviar and seafood! Who has Thanksgiving without dinner rolls? There was not a piece of dark meat Turkey in the place. Turkey should have been carved instead of breast meat put in metal covered trays. Prime rib was too rare and tough. I could have missed it but didnt see any pumpkin pie. Deviled eggs that has salmon mixed in and caviar on top, really? It was extremely gross! Again very over priced and a huge disappointment! 3 people 212 dollars plus a 46 dollar tip because it wasn't the wait staffs fault, they were awesome. Davenport needs to step up there game because dockside in the coeurdalene resort gets it right and half the price, you just need to drive 25 miles.

Top notch, great place to take out of town guests. Beautiful ambiance and many interesting people. Staff is wonderful and accommodating. We asked the waitstaff about the delicious stew and the chef came out and spoke with us personally sharing her tips even though they were serving over 200 guests that day and she was obviously busy. Very impressed!

Food, atmosphere, everything was great except our server. We had to ask her to remove dishes, she was not very attentive and we had to ask another server to ask our server to bring our bill. Always had to wait and signal her for almost everything. We were disappointed because we brought friends from 2,000 miles away and told them how good the service was. All other times we were there we had great service.

Not worth the $49.95 charge...it's Buffett food. The food was presented well and tasted good, but still BUFFET fare: nothing special. Prime rib wasn't seasoned well, but it was tender. The salads were fine and the fruit and cheese was fine. But for $49.95, I was expecting more--better. I won't go back.
Service was great. Rarely a wait for drink refills and never felt rushed to get in and get out.

I booked a reservation for my boyfriend's birthday as a surprise. He loved the ambience as it made him feel very special. It was both of our first times having brunch here and it was a fun and unique experience. I was a bit confused at first as to where I needed to check in but Michelle took care of us and did an amazing job. She even provided a tour when she learned that we hadn't been before. The meal was expensive but that was expected when I booked the reservation. I would come back to celebrate another special occasion.

We come here twice a year, because we love the ambiance, the food and the wait staff is great
But, my husband does not eat fish of any kind, so Sunday was a bit disappointing to him because
there was no chicken at all. You always serve some kind of chicken. You had a good selection but
we are use to having some chicken or ribs or ham. Was a bit disappointed .
