Ambience and view of Falls spectacular-food way overpriced for what you got. My Halibut was perfect and delicious but way overpriced even though it was Halibut which runs at least $20 a pound. Accompanied by a handful of thumbnail sized potatoes in a great sauce, but not a $49 plate value. My husbands scallops could have used another few minutes on the grill, they weren't done to his level, again not a $44 value because only accompanied by a small amount of vegetables and Cous Cous. Anthony's Home Port serves the samae with bigger portions for half the price. service was fantaastic. You're paying for the name Snoqualmie Lodge. Off our bucket list but worth doing once if you can afford it.

This was beyond amazing. Our server and dinning experience was beyond what we expected. We had our own little private area and was hosted with rose petals on the table and even received a complimentary celebratory drink and an anniversary dessert which was all so wonderful. We were so appreciative of these extra special touches. This was the highlight of our wedding anniversary!! Thank you so very much to both Amanda our pleasant server who was very helpful in offering suggestions regarding my dietary restrictions, the hosts who sat us at this wonderful table and the chefs for making amazing food.

Food was good, but prices were very high. Further, a mysterious 3% "service charge" was added. The management seems curiously obsessive about reservations, even when the dining room was 2/3 empty.

Excellent food- I had the elk and we started with a tasty polenta and cheese curds side . Good wine, very friendly and professional service. Expensive but it’s a high end resort so that’s expected.

Sunday brunch at 8:45am. Seated at the window overlooking the falls with a constant rainbow. Selected the classic 4 course brunch. Everything I had heard about was true. Great service, food was plentiful and very good. Oatmeal was my least favorite course...flavor was somewhat different than typical rolled oats that I have had. Great selection of pastries and the final course was more than I could finish. Only 2 observations...although I know that I am paying extra for the location, it did seem a little pricey for what you receive. Also I think the wait staff should notice when the current course is almost finished before bringing out the next one or at least ask customers if they are ready for the next course. I felt like we had we had to keep plowing through the courses or they would pile up on the table. That said, we didn't feel rushed overall and I would do it again for sure.

This place was amazing. We stayed at the lodge on a long weekend getaway and this was our night out dinner. The food, waitstaff, atmosphere, everything was incredible. I would highly recommend this place to anyone heading towards Salish lodge. We shared the ahi appetizer. I got the St. Helens filet mignon which melted in my mouth and my husband got the at Helens rib eye. He loved his as well. I can’t remember the name of the desert but it was Snoqualmie something and had honey miirangue and blackberry compote. Very delicious.

Our party celebrated a special birthday tonight. I had read some earlier reviews that had mentioned it was a relaxed atmosphere, so I was prepared for the meal to take a while, and I knew that the prices were a bit higher than a run-of-the-mill restaurant.
We ordered several different dishes, and each was excellent. Really. The bacon grilled Brussels sprouts and the venison were good choices for starters, and were shared around the table. The baby greens salads were also well received. Two in our party had the pork chop, and we were both well satisfied. They were grilled perfectly, and tasted terrific. We were also pleasantly surprised at the portion size for the smoked duck, but that was nothing compared to the flavor. Fabulous. The scallops and the ratatouille both also scored high marks. Unfortunately, we were too full to try the desserts, but we did share the small piece of cake they brought out for the birthday. Even that was excellent.
We're happy we remembered this gem in our backyard, and we look forward to returning in the future.

Had a late lunch with the family. The food and drinks were pretty good. Was abit disappointed with my crab omlet. It was more like a rolled egg roll with very little crab filling, not worth the price.
Also disappointed that we did not have a view of the falls. Had a view of steps.
I think the server was new but he was very pleasant and attentive.

We have been to The Dining Room at Salish Lodge & Spa twice now and have not been disappointed either time. The food is amazing. Presentation is impeccable! I made reservations this year to celebrate our 10 year anniversary and the table was set up with rose petals, and we were presented with a glass of champagne each to thank us for staying at the lodge. They also brought us a piece of cake saying, "Happy Anniversary!" We also had breadfast there the next morning and were not disappointed. We plan to go back the next time we are in Seattle.

Had a great meal and service was first rate! The meal itself was very good but fell short of spectacular which is the reason for the 4 stars instead of 5. I had the filet mingon and it was well prepared and tasted good. The sides were two spears of asparagus (good) and a few small potatoes that were a little undercooked and still slightly hard inside. Wasn't a big enough deal to complain but I'm sure they would have taken care of it if I had. My husband had the Chinook salmon which was perfectly prepared and served on a bed of lentils which was an interesting choice. Those also seems slightly undercooked but I don't eat lentils often so perhaps that is normal for them to be firm. He also ordered a side of mashed potatoes which we both shared and it was delicious! My husband had two of the best scratch margaritas of his life (Compliments to the bartender!) We passed on dessert as we were stuffed but they brought us a small piece of cake that said "Happy Anniversary" which was a very nice touch! All in all a very nice dinner!
