What a fantastic meal. We started with a sparkling wine toast, which was free to guests of the hotel. Had cocktails and then an amazing meal made with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. I had the halibut, the best I have ever had. The fingerling potatoes with it were addictive. Husband had the salmon, and our child had a steak. Mike, our server, was very friendly and knowledgable. The prices are not on the menu. Entrees were $55. Starters, alcohol, desserts extra. I wish we'd saved room for dessert!

My husband and I celebrated our 33 anniversary at The Dining Room. We were seated in a special window alcove with just our table. Our server, Kyle, was very friendly and attentive. The red rose petals on the table were especially nice. The coffee with special additions like whipped vanilla cream and shaved chocolate were extra special. Our meals were unique, tasty, and beautiful. We definitely will be back.

The food was very good especially the clam chowder, but unfortunately there was a hair found in the salmon dish. The staff were very good about it and really tried to make amends but it did spoil our trip just a little bit. I would still recommend the restaurant even though this happened.

Food was way below standard for the Salish - after more than 50 years of visiting the Snoqualmie Falls this is the first time we had substandard food - a huge disappointment. I have not even heard back from the restaurant about my complaint after 4 days. If I don't get a response at all, I'm unlikely to go back again unless I hear they've changed chefs and/or food prep style. Crab omelete presentation was terrible (per my daughter who is a chef) and the fish and chips was pedestrian and the cole slaw could have been used for packing material.

Overall experience was ok. An earlier issue with staff left our table uncovered and no one noticed we had not been waited on putting us in a position of needing to call for attention after 20-25 minutes of waiting. This occurred despite having numerous bus people, hosts and waitpersons circulating at tables all around us. Better training needed. Very expensive for poor service and good but nothing- special breakfast without a view of falls.

Our server did a great job ensuring we had a nice anniversary dinner, her recommendations for food also worked out great. Reading recent reviews our expectations on food wasnt high but food actually turned out to be great. Squash blossoms isnt something you always find in menus so definitely give it a try. Both pork chop and scallops were cooked perfectly and portions were more then enough (4 large scallops for example). While the desert, baked snoqualmie, was good and light, the desert selections was a bit limited.

Our 60th Anniversary Brunch was most enjoyable. We have occasionally visited this venue for the last 50 years and confidently advise that the Best of their Traditions have not only survived, but have prospered. (And the Brunch was superb!)

Salish Lodge earns a 5 Star recommendation!

We all enjoyed our time while there, other than the parking ticket I received. Having eaten in the lodge on occasion for some 40 years now there are lots of changes we did not understand and making one pay for handicap parking is pretty heartless!
We all had the high priced country breakfast that was delicious but none ate all of it. We agreed not to order that again preferring something both with less food and price; spending $200.00 for 4 people having breakfast is just to far over the top in our view. If there were some a-la-cart items we would come more often, maybe they were there but we did not see that on our menu.
All in all we enjoyed our time with out of town family and now that we know the brunch menu better, we can make lighter choices the next time. We especially enjoyed our server who was very polite, friendly and interesting to talk with.

I brought my Mother here for brunch and we enjoyed every bit of it. She was visiting from Louisiana and I wanted to make our last full day together special before she flew back home. Evan, our waiter, was amazing and attentive. I will return on my own!

The dinner was exceptional and they were able to accommodate celiac disease. It was quite loud; however, as a large party was seated near us and it was hard to enjoy the meal. The view is exceptional by the window, but not so much otherwise. Be aware of the setting sun. Blinds are closed later in afternoon because sun comes directly in, so you will not have a view. They did pull the shade up for the sunset and it was magnificent.

New to Seattle so wanted to see the falls. Had a 6:45 Rez for 4. Arrived at 6:20... many many empty table but the host told us our table was not ready till 6:45 so we went to the “bar” which is more like a bar kinda in a Denny’s or Pizza Hut.
Had to be seated ..at a table with noisy screaming kids all around... not a relaxing place to have a cocktail in the Attic. Got our cocktails at 6:45 so walked back downstairs to be seated... waited another 8 minutes....so
Arrived at our window table with no Falls view . We order a bottle of wine, elk,filet, Salmon and the pork chop.
The elk was good but everything else very just ok. Actually the salmon was very disappointing.
Anyhow.. walking outside to see the falls is great..
So go to the falls and dine somewhere else!!

We brought our 91 year old friend to the Lodge for a nostalgic visit. We were delighted to get a table at lunchtime on the window and our server (Evan?) was friendly, attentive, and engaging. What was disappointing was the food. It did not live up to the quality I have come to expect after many visits to The Salish over the years. The halibut of the fish and chips entree was cut thin and there were a number of very small pieces.....we all know how big a halibut it! As a result the pieces were dried out.
But the real disappointment was the prime beef hamburger. It looked to be pre-formed by a machine, it had some kind of “filler” and I should have known it was not going to be made to order when I was not asked how I wanted it prepared. It was just Blah and grayish. No juices, and not a trace of browning from being cooked over a flame, grill or hot pan. It’s a good thing the company, the view and the service balanced out the lack of food quality.

great experience here, very comparable to Barking Frog at Willows Lodge, hard to say which one is better. Service was excellent, waiter was very attentive and was very knowledgeable about the menu and the ingredients used to craft each dish. Food was great, each course was served with just a short wait time. The bread service is very good, the honey butter they serve pairs very nicely. protip - the bread is very spongy and soaks up soup well!

This is a beautiful lodge with a great dining experience. You won’t find a more spectacular view; especially on a sunny day. Breakfast at the lodge is my favorite as they have kept the 100 year old tradition of the honey waterfall experience that tops freshly baked biscuits. Amazing! My wife and I were delighted to share our 21st anniversary at the Salish Lodge! It’s a must go for any romantic occasion at any time of the year.

Wonderful service and great food. We were seated along the window as requested, but there was a business event going on that spilled out onto the patio so our view turned into a bunch of people standing around talking. They get extra points for scattering rose petals on our table and giving us complimentary glasses of sparkling wine for our anniversary. Our favorite dish was the side of grits and cheese curds!

Son and daughter in law were in town from Arizona. Sure wish we had a view site. They had a great time though and I thought the Egg Benedict was delicious. They really enjoyed the honey on the biscuits and my son was impressed with the sample he received on his tongue. All in all we really had a great morning! Thank you!

Brunch at Salish Lodge is absolutely not worth the price if you don’t have a table with a view. Our table did not have a view, was in a dark area and it was really loud. You go for the view, so when you don’t have it it’s very disappointing. I was embarrassed to bring my family visiting from out of town here, especially because I had raved about how nice it was.

Halibut was amazing! Crab bisque not so much! The bisque was cold and the teaspoon of shredded crab was grey and a little too fishy. It was inedible. I tried giving it to my boyfriend who usually eats everything and he declined after tasting it. The waitress came by and excitedly asked how the bisque was and we both said not good. So she picks up the full bowl and walks away without a word but went ahead and charged us. The waitress was a little pretentious and we felt unworthy even though we were staying at the lodge. Next time we stay at the lodge we will not be eating at the restaurant.
