The Salish Lodge is a great brunch spot and offers an experience beyond just good food. The location and history of the space make for a much more fun and interesting meal and experience. Also, who can't love the honey from heaven!?

This was one of the most amazing meals I have ever had. It was our anniversary and we had a marvelous evening. The view at Salish is incredible, service exceptional and the food was scrumptious. Nothing can compare.

Perfect place to stop for lunch to relax . Especially worthwhile bringing out of town visitors. Nice short hike to bottom of waterfall for avid hikers and walkers. But return from waterfall is very steep walk. Must wear good walking shoes. Gravel road. Best to hike on good dry day.

Experience was very disappointing. Salish used to be an event and it has fallen way off in the last few years. Over priced and food was not prepared well. Steak over cooked. If you want a special occasion at a price, drive to Bellevue (John Howie), Kirkland (Cafe Juanita) Woodinville (Herb Farm/barking frog) or Better yet Seattle (Aqua). Servers were nice and clearly working hard. Product on the plate was wholesale disappointment. We hit the drive through at MacDonalds after dropping over $300 if that tells you how it was.

For the price, I would have liked a better meal. I had a fillet mignon that was good, but not great. Kind of hard to make a bad fillet mignon, but this one really wasn't anything to write home about. Also, my potatoes were awfully undercooked, and I don't think that was the intention.

Service was excellent. View was great. Price was pretty exorbitant, especially the wine by the glass. The kitchen may have just had an off-night.

Service and ambiance outstanding! View- priceless! Food above average but we expected more choices. Few vegan options for my wife. Disappointed for her. My duck was okay but I certainly have had better. Great wine selection!

Stayed at the lodge and the accommodations are superb.

Our anniversary.

Thank you.

The view is nice all the time but especially great when it snows. The food was well prepared (country breakast) but when all is said and done probably not great enough to warrant the high price. If you can go when there was a recent heavy snow fall and/or when the falls are at maximum flow, that would be the best time to go. The valet parking is free if you are dining.

Our table overlooking the falls was a wonderful way to privately celebrate our 50th anniversary. Of course it was expensive but there are occasions that call for ignoring the number on the check. Erik our waiter was quite pleasant. The food, duck and scallops, was exquisite. The privacy truly allowed a wonderful opportunity to look back and then forward.

The personal attention the Dining Room gave us was a sheer pleasure. This was our 45th Anniversary. We have always wanted to stay at the Lodge and have a relaxing dining experience (we have dined at the Lodge before ... mostly their heralded breakfast).

Well, our table was decorated with rose petals. All the staff greeted us with “Happy Anniversary.” We lingered over our dinner: wife had the pork chop (I wish I had ordered that too) and, I,the Elk Medallion. We enjoyed the view out of our window, our dinner, our dessert and our after dinner coffee. I think we were there for nearly 3 hours.
Our server, Erik, was attentive and truly allowed us to relax and enjoy our dinner. (Erik handled a very disruptive diner at the next table quite well. Kudos to Salish Lodge for it’s effort to keep great decorum in their dining room. But, let a slightly loud Birthday celebrants have their way — which I agree.).

Over all, an excellent experience. We think the staff made our occasion very special (including the rose petals and special “Happy Anniversary” cake). Salish Lodge Gabe us a very special evening.

Good food but the quality does not match the price tag. To a certain extent this is balanced by the amazing view of Snoqualmie Falls, but only about half the restaurant can see out the windows.

Wonderful meal. We went in on a Wednesday night, so it was pretty quiet and we had a view of the Falls. Food was delicious! We were celebrating an anniversary and they had rose petals on the table, wished us happy anniversary and dessert came with a fondant "happy anniversary" decoration. All those nice touches made it the perfect place to celebrate with date night.

Gorgeous views, impeccable service but with a friendly relaxed vibe. Dinner was delicious with something that would take each item over the top such as a sauce with bone marrow or morels added to a dish. Both seafood and meat available, including elk. Breakfast had everything you could want starting off with a biscuit with honey drizzled from three feet above emulating the falls. Coffee came with a little plate of extras with the cream and sugar to add including whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Loved it!

Hubby's birthday dinner was quite lovely. Requested and got window seat with view of the falls. Excellent and attentive but not intrusive service. Quiet surroundings. Exceptional entrees. Only complaint was having actual wood fire in adjoining room when it had been over 85 degrees outside earlier. Understand it is part of the lodge ambiance but it was rather odd. Incredible wine list! The sommelier helped steer my hubby to a most exceptional bottle of WA wine. Kudos to the chef and staff!

They blew us away with the coffee tray that came with our bottomless cups of coffee—shaved chocolate, whipped cream, raw sugar, and regular cream. Our server was very pleasant, but forgot to bring our hot sauce and mixed up the doggy bags. My pesto and wild mushroom omelette was delicious, but missing its mushrooms. It was removed from our bill. So, overall the place was sending mixed messages. On the one hand seemed very classy, on the other there seemed a carelessness about details.

The view was the real show-stopper at The Dining Room. It was incredible to watch the mist float up from Snoqualmie Falls and hover amongst the tree tops as the sun was setting at creating long streaks and rays amongst the mist. Definitely try to score a window seat. The food was really good. I loved the bread with butter and honey! My husband's fish was great. My bison medallions were good.

From reservation the collecting our coats on the way out, every aspect of our dining experience was superb. The reservation staff confirmed by phone the day before with kind and courteous aplomb. I had requested a special, quiet room for two using the Open Table reservation comments section. That is was noticed and confirmed by a real live human on the phone was remarkable and appreciated very much. We wanted to review "date night" at this dining room as our first date. We were not disappointed. The accommodation, the value we received and the service of the staff was exemplary. We will be revisiting this dining room many times now in our relationship. Thank you Salish Lodge Dining room staff and - forgot to mention - creative chefs, very tasty food! You made our first date a romantic success.
