I had the crab omlet and it was very good but would have been much better with a hollandaise sauce on it (or on the side). I like the fresh fruit option when I didn't want potatoes.

Always a beautiful room to dine, unfortunately the food quality is still extremely lacking, given how expensive it is. We keep giving it another shot because reviews are still so good. Both starter and entree were overcooked. When will I learn?

We were promptly seated, but the evening when down hill from there. The wait staff was inattentive, the kitchen slow. The time between the appetizer and main course was at least 30 minutes, bread was served after the main course, we were presented the desert menu between the appetizer and the main course, the second serving of ordered wine was never served, and to top it off the restaurant had the nerve to add an announced "3% kitchen" surcharge to the bill. Not on my repeat list

This restaurant is a rip off. The menu is from the 70’s meaning NOT nutrtional. If you like starch and preservatives and cheap fatty meats than this will be ok but for the price save your money and go to a place that actually has thoughtfully made food with a view and there are plenty out there in the NW. This place relies on taking advantage of the beautiful natural setting but does not at all keep up to its end of the bargain.

Atmosphere/view was pretty nice. Music would be better if if were more ambient, without percussion so much (about half/half as it was). Service was fine, but not all servers paid the same attention to detail in e.g. explaining the menu for newbies (same at breakfast, too). Price was not cheap but not out of line either, for the overall experience. The cuisine was delicious, and the portions were spot on (I don't like getting too much to eat). I would go again if the occasion arises.

We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary here and it was everything we remembered from a priviouse visit 11 years ago. The service was great with a slight lull in attention toward the end but it was much more busy then. Food was incredible and we arrived with rose pedals on the table.

The Elk medallions were superb, as was the Salmon. My wife thought her vegetarian pasta with goat cheese was dry and too salty, but the grilled tomatoes on top were divine.

The Salish Lodge Dining Room or Videos a unique dining by experience. The view overlooking the Snowqualmie Falls is a beautiful sight. The intimate country breakfast is a wonderful brunch option and it is filled with delicious surprises. When the coffee was served, it came with a whole tray of extras (chocolate shavings, raw sugar, whipped sweet cream, etc.) to customize it to your liking. A tray of pastries is delivered with their homemade butter and the server will pour their very own harvested “honey from heaven” onto your biscuits. So delicious! Our service was truly impeccable. I will go back anytime I am in the Seattle area. It is worth the drive.

First time there. Wife's birthday and it was amazing thanks to our server Lindsay and the staff! Finding parking was a task until I called and hostess mentioned valet parking is FREE! OMG Awesome start on that rainy day. Food options (Thanks Chef!!!) and service (Thanks Lindsay) was amazing! Honey from Heaven was a Fun Experience! Not just eat food but experience was memorable! Had our 3yr old and they had a kid's menu and food was stellar! Fancy enough for the environment but also enjoyable by a child! THANK YOU!!!! Definitely coming again! ---and not just for a special occasion!

What a wonderful night. Our server "Mike" was excellent. He took the time to recommend some phenomenal dishes from the menu and was always great about keeping us filled up with coffee, tea, and water, but not too obtrusive. The food was superb. Our table shared 3 appetizers of grits with curds, a burrata salad, and stuffed squash blossoms. For the main course I shared elk medallions and was so impressed at the flavor and tenderness for a wild game option. I can't comment on drinks or dessert but what we saw from other tables looked wonderful. This was a pricey outing but it was a special occasion and definitely worth what we paid. We will be back for more special occasions I'm certain. It was a lovely time and everything was so professionally done.

We were looking for something special for our 3 days in Seattle and found it in the Snoqualmie area. This beautifully located restaurant perched dramatically over the Snoqualmie Falls offered a healthy Northwest lunch menu starting with homemade biscuits and masterly drizzled with local honey by our wonderful hostess. The vista from our private dining room was awesome. Following our meal we headed to the 1.5 mike walking trail absorbing both the history and nature of the environment. It was a memorable Seattle afternoon.

Wow, was this place wonderful. From the service to the food to the view -- all exceeded expectations! Our party of five was seated in a little private room, right next to the window. Loved this location, as it made it easier for us to talk and hear each other. We all ordered the halibut and chips, and it was delicious. Our waitress was terrific, and we were impressed with everything, but especially the view. Can't wait to visit again!
