Overall it was good but I think they need to hire more waitstaff. Our waitress had a hard time keeping up on taking dirty plates from the table and keeping our drinks filled. And both times I ate brunch there the eggs benedict muffin was so hard we couldnt eat it. The desserts were fantastic!

Brunch before Opera in a fabulous setting; excellent food and impeccable service. The Marie Antoinette Room was the setting and since the opera was Mozart, very appropriate indeed. Great fun!

Always love this brunch and has been too long since our last visit, 7 years, still beyond thrilled with our experience all the way around. Our waiter was very attentive and apologetic when he felt he wasn't on point, but he totally was. Will be back again sooner than later!

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.

This is my second time at Sunday Brunch and was not disappointed! Robert our server and was amazing! We always had full glasses and he was funny and very personable. Food was great as always and I will always visit anytime I am in Spokane. My best friend lives there and I live in Sacramento, CA and I look forward to visiting the Davenport when I visit!

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 .

I wanted to finally experience the famous brunch at the Davenport. This was on my summer bucket list and I found a girlfriend to join me. Everyone that I encountered during this experience was super friendly and a welcome surprise. There were only a few tables filled so it wasn't busy. The food was just ok and I would look at lowering the cost about $10-$15. The great service and friendly faces, the unlimited mimosa's balanced out the cost of the buffet. I'm glad that I finally dined and experienced the Sunday Brunch but I think I will need to try the Peacock room next.

While the food was good and the service very god, I would not do this brunch again on any holiday but Thanksgiving. We would have done the Thanksgiving brunch several times and felt it was well worth the money. However, to charge the same price for Father’s Day brunch is totally absurd. The food selection for Thanksgiving offers much more variety and included wine as well as mimosas. Father’s Day brunch offered a similar selection as the normal Sunday brunch, did not include wine and yet was the same price as Thanksgiving. We had to pay extra for wine. That seems a bit outrageous when we paid $69 per person. Would never do again.

Please note that I am a type one diabetic and require sugar free desert; for five years I have been complaining that gluten free is an option but not sugar free.

The manager, Michele, came over and I explained the necessity of sugar free so she sent a sugar free desert of whipped cream and fruit which was delicious. I do not care if you offer a premade cookie from the grocery store as long as there is some type of sugar free offering.

Thanks ever so much.

I will start with the only negative. This brunch is expensive. And while you may justify that with the amount of food available and the all you can eat premise, at our ages we wouldn't generally be able to justify spending that amount of money when our appetites aren't that expansive anymore. However, the hotel's dining space was lovely, the service was excellent (shout out to our waiter - Robert), and the food was delicious. Even our grandson, who is a notoriously picky eater enjoyed several selections from the various stations. The carving station had a perfectly cooked Prime Rib for slicing, delicious whole suckling pig, pork belly skewers and various sauces and condiments to serve alongside. The chafing station's cinnamon roll french toast was the highlight of my grandson's breakfast (along with the suckling pig). The make your own omelet bar and the pancake and waffle bar was everything you could desire. I enjoyed the salads and the steamed shellfish served with remoulade sauce, Louie sauce, and other condiments. The breads and pastries were good and the bagel bar with salmon and flavored cream cheeses was delicious. Some of our group feasted on the cheese board and the salumi platter. My daughter loved the smoothies. Then there were the desserts -- wonderful and creative pastries. The some-mores bar was genius! I loved the miniature lemon meringue tarts and the flourless chocolate cake. Father's Day was worth the expense!

I felt like it was a good spread but lots of meats and not enough side dishes in the main buffet for how expensive it is. Aside from salad bar the only real side was the breakfast potatoes, for the price there should have been more. I’m disappointed the crepe station has been removed.

We enjoyed the Champagne Sunday Bruch immensely. It was our first opportunity to spend time in Spokane. After spending a few days st the Historic Davenport we were excited to try the Brunch. The food was excellent and our service was exceptional. The hotel is beautiful! We took the walking tour after brunch and enjoyed the beautiful architecture and learning the history of the hotel. We’re looking forward to returning soon. Thanks to the staff for their kindness.

My daughter and I made reservations for the Davenport mother’s day brunch. Our reservation was at 2:30. We checked in at 2:20 and was seated at 3:20. When we finally were seated, we noticed there were about 4 or 5 tables for parties of two. Why? The rest were for large groups. That’s ridiculous! We waited an hour to get seated with a reservation. Unacceptable. The food was cold, dry, tasteless and looked as if it had been sitting out all day. Granted, our reservation was at 2:30 but the food should be prepared closer to that time. I will never attend a Mother’s day brunch at he Davenport. Definitely not worth 142.00! I won’t recommend it to anyone I know. Very disappointing because their Sunday regular brunch is phenomenal! They definitely didn’t make this mom and her daughter feel special! Maybe better organization or something!

As usual, the Davenport staff attended to every detail. The service was excellent, even on such a busy day. The chefs did a magnificent job and they kept the delicious food coming until the very end so even people with later reservations got to try all the delicious food. I prefer not to go to busy, crowded events but somehow, they made this special despite the many people. The Davenport is a jewel of dining and hospitality in Spokane. It is always worth a visit.
