Overall an ok experience this time around, which leaves me with a dissatisfied feeling given the very high prices at the dining room. Ambiance was great as usual, and while service was good and professional it clearly could have been a bit more attentive.

Not too happy with the food quality this time around. Salad was fine but nothing out of the ordinary (...boring...). My risotto's subtle flavors were largely overshadowed by it being way too spicy. Dessert - panna cotta - was very nicely presented but lacking the right level of creaminess.

We went for Valentine's Day breakfast, which, surprisingly even for that day there were only 4 tables busy when we arrived. We did not have the large breakfast, but the "classic". The service was excellent. The only complaint is the "seasonal fruit with organic mint" which was $5 extra. A large bowl of brownish apples with 3 slices of orange and no mint. Our embarassed server brought a new bowl with mixed apples and 1 piece of orange. Considering we can buy blueberries, strawberries and other assorted fruits in the grocery store, I was very disappointed. We will return, but probably to the remodeled "Attic" bar & restaurant - maybe the same server will be there. He was great.

Beautiful and interesting local area historical site which is excellent to bring "out of town" visitors as well as visiting for Seattle area residents looking for a daily getaway. The lodge itself has a quaint, rustic feel with a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. Having only experienced breakfast in the dining room, as a special occasion birthday celebration, the food and service were vey good and the event enhanced by having a window table to fully enjoy the view.

 (Phoenix)·Dined on February 10, 2013

Our only complaint was that they have a row of single tables seating 2 people that are very close together. There are four single tables in a row where is hard to get in and out and to talk. You feel like you are dining with strangers. It is a deal breaker and thereis no view of the beautiful falls. It seems lime they would gve reservations a priority over walk ins.

Food is always great, service is usually excellent, this visit was the one exception. Server was slow to take our orders (slow enough we eventually decided to just skip the dessert we had decided on when they brought the dessert menu), food was slow, and the place wasn't really that busy. Maybe it was just an off night.

Our two person table was small and sort of in the thoroughfare with wait staff passing behind us constantly. When the waitstaff have to juggle to make room for the dishes, the table needs to be bigger. The food and service were excellent.

We enjoyed a Sunday brunch here and it didn't disappoint. A great venue to go for a special occasion and they are working their menu to contain local ingredients (they have bees now!). Our service was a bit slow as we were the last seating for brunch and there were several large parties. Once the food arrived, it was delicious. The hot chocolate service for two is worth the money and you must add the cinnamon whip cream.

My beloved wife and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary at the Salish. We were wonderfully taken care of by the best waiter ever, William. He was very courteous, friendly, knowledgeable and attentive without being too smothering.

The food was excellent too. Be sure to order the chocolate souflee for desert. You won't be disappointed.

During our trip we ate twice in your dining room.
Dinner seating was terrible next to the exit and a space heater and crowded. my kitchen is much more comfortable. Service was fair at best, food was very good. Conversation was difficult due it to being so loud. very expensive for a unpleasant ambiance.
Breakfast was wonderful in every manner seating the best, service the best, calm and quiet the food very good.

The recent changes to the brunch menu were not entirely noticeable, although the presentation was - and perhaps wasn't for the better. The view (when not fogged in) is spectacular. Service was attentive, without being overbearing.

We were seated in a semi-private room away from the main dining area which made us seem isolated and self-conscious about our conversation noise level. Our server was personable and helpful, but the food tasted less interesting than how it was described in the menu. Very expensive.

All in all, our dining experience was good. However, we did request a table with a veiw when making our reservation, and were willing to wait for one, not being in any hurry whatsoever.
We were seated at a table that could not have been further from this if one tried really hard. We had a lovely "view" of a dark corner. This sort of put a damper on the experience.

Unique, dramatic physical locations often produce second-rate cuisine. Not here where the meals are as special as the historic, powerful setting. Brunch is especially nice for us, with a lovely 50 minute drive through the foothills of the Cascades preparing us for and bookending an always lovely meal.

I found myself disappointed. I made a reservation on line for lunch and requested a view of the falls. We were seated in a room with a view of chain link fence and spray. Also found lunch was not available. 1 out of 3 of us were impressed with our meal. Overall not an experience to be repeated.

The Dining Room at Salish Lodge was a decent experience. My wife and I were there for our anniversary and I say decent because I felt we could have been dining/staying anywhere. It was not special. The staff was kind and the meal was great but we were hoping for a little more for an anniversary stay. Our table was in a corner away form the amazing view overlooking the falls and the only way we knew that they knew it was our anniversary was the waiter stated "Happy Anniversary" when we arrived. Maybe I have unrealistic expectations, however, last year at a competing resort (within 30 miles) we had an incredible time — World Class. Would give them another try, yes since I believe we were the exception and not the rule. It is a very nice place

Beautiful view. Better for lunch or early dinner to enjoy the view. Food was mediocre at best. Service was strangly casual for a restaurant with that price point. We didn't have the tasting menu due to the fact they didn't have the lobster. This was odd because the restaurant wasn't very busy which made us think they didn't have it I begin with although they told us they ran out. The temperate in the restaurant was cold enough we some if our party had to put their jackets on.

My Wife and I ate at The Dining Room for our 10th anniversary. As the host led us back to our table, he mentioned "I understand that it is your 10th anniversary!" The flowers that I had ordered were sitting on the table, beautifully displayed. It is that attention to detail which is so appreciated. Our dining experience was exceptional. The service was attentive, but not overwhelming. The food was wonderfully prepared and and creatively presented. We never felt rushed. Ultimately, I was looking for a place to have a romantic evening, carry on a quiet conversation, enjoy great food and good wine, and The Dining Room at Salish Lodge did not disappoint.

For all the anticipation of finally making it to Salish Lodge for Christmas Eve Dinner, the overall experience was utterly unremarkable. I kept getting the feeling the staff would rather be somewhere else. OK, it was Christmas eve. We were sequestered in an un-requested and un-mentioned (until we were seated), small private space, so the only ambiance experienced was our own. I guess the people in the dining room were having a good time. The menu was stunning - in it's lack of variety and selection. We were told this was the Christmas Eve menu and the kitchen wanted to keep it simple. At that they succeeded. We were also told to avoid the Rib Steak because the Roasted Pine Nuts tasted like peanut butter.

This was our third year coming here for breakfast on Christmas Eve morning. The food is very good, especially if you are in the mood to indulge. The portions are huge--too big for me. We may split next year if we can agree on our order, though they do charge $10 for splitting. My only real complaint? They haven't changed the menu in the last three years.
