We had a reservation for 10:45am and when we arrived early at 9:45am, they were able to seat us. We were seated in our own little alcove with a great view of the falls. The bloody mary was on point with spice and taste! The food (brunch) was amazing! For a Friday before the start of a major holiday (Thanksgiving), it was not very full at all. I've been twice before because their brunch is so good; this visit was my husband's first time and he loved it as much as I always do!

No rose petals on our table for our anniversary. Our table was next to the window but we could not see the falls. It was so cold we had to keep on our coats which made it uncomfortable trying to eat.
Very over priced.
The wedding party was loud and distracting.

Our most recent experience having brunch at the Salish was not as good as in years' past. We always bring guests to this spot, but this time the entire experience left something to be desired. We were seated in a weird spot at the back of the restaurant near their event space. The server was nice but she had trouble keeping track of our order. The food was OK, but some of our special requests did not get handled. I just found it to be nowhere near as good as it has been (especially considering the price is not for the faint of heart- which is fine if you're getting 5 star quality, but not so much when you're having an off experience).

This is the third time I've been, and it's always great. The brunch for 2 is an amazing value and one of the reasons I keep going back. As a great plus, there's free valet parking and a wonderful waterfall.

Prices were high, which we expected, but the $5-6 charge for splitting a sandwich was unexpected and something we would have avoided if they'd mentioned it. (It's a sandwich. Presumably it comes cut in half regardless...)

Hidden charges aside, the drinks were great and food delicious.

We requested a view of the falls, got a table by the window, but couldn't see the falls. Toward the end of our meal, they ushered us out of our table (to make room for another party) and we saw that some tables do actually have a view.

Particularly impressed that Bennworked to accommodate appropriate room requested by us! ALSO our waitress recognized that eggs Benedict was not cooked as ordered and corrected it- have never had a waitperson acknowledge this on their own! Our group member was just going to eat it instead of bring it up.

We had brunch. The food was excellent and love the dining room. Fun to be up at the falls for the fall leaves. Service was great. They even do the "Honey from Heaven" thing from WAY BACK where they pour honey on your scones from very high.

Just wish it wasn't so expensive. Four of us spent $175 for a pretty basic brunch.

Great view and meal. Limited luncheon items because they only serve either brunch or dinner. But there were a few lunch items to choose. Wonderful view of the fall trees. Best to make a reservation to have a window seat, and even better to go during the week, if possible.

Food was overpriced and you are really paying for the location and not the quality of the food. Prawn bisque had a good bisque flavor, but mushroom gnocchi had a funny after taste even hours later. Molten cake was slightly overbaked and not even remotely molten. They served the check with a mini Jo bake cookies that was reminiscent of elementary school cooking. Service from check in to courses was painfully slow.

Food was delicious. Service was top notch. Dessert was very dry - chocolate molten cake.

Locals apparently get 20% off but our server didn't inform us and we ended up paying full price. A little disappointed in this.

First of all, the ideal Salish Lodge experience should begin with a short hike to view Snoqualmie Fall, then a massage/treatment, a meal then an overnight stay. We did not stay over since the place was sold out. And I was able to get two spots for a foot massage for my wife and mother in law as a walk in, but I was lucky. The restaurant is charming—we were placed in a private booth. The wine list was fine, but ironically because of the massage, we moderated on the wine (so comfy you fall asleep effect). We went during Seattle Restaurant week, and we tried both the prix fixe and the regular menu. The prix fixe is a great deal! But the regular menu items were great as well. They focus on seasonal and local sourcing. Their dessert menu is not extensive, so not great if you are an extensive sweets fan. But we had a wonderful time! And did I mention, Snoqualmie Fall is just glorious!

We previously enjoyed breakfast, lunch but not dinner at the Salish Lodge. We took advantage of restaurant week to check out the dinner fare. The service was amazing (thank you Eric and Alec) although the food was disappointing. Bread, starter and dessert were solid, but the entree' was overcooked and not exceptional in any way. The kitchen team delivered a less than spectacular experience.

Our problem - All three of those in my party a great problem with the size and "heaviness" of the dishes we had at brunch. We were a senior, a 52 yr old and a 45 yr old. .

Don’t bother mentioning if you have a special occasion as it’s not acknowledged. Also, doesn’t matter if you make reservations as you’ll be seated at a table where the breeze from the main entry chills you to the bone. Usually a good experience, but this time was very disappointing. Especially since, the F&B manager was running the hosting duties.

The Dining Room at Salish is definitely not inexpensive, but it provides a level of service that rival fine dining restaurants in larger cities. The food pallet is sometimes simple, but packs a good amount of depth. Steaks that are aged, Duck that has a salty, sweet and crunchy component as well as a good range of sides. One thing that I wish was better was the selection and quality of the appetizers. My Pork Belly seemed like it was made early in the day as it was dry. It is REALLY hard to get a pork belly dry, seeing as it is literally made of fat, so I assume they had it sitting under a heat lamp or something. The aged steak had a deep set of flavors, but the au jus that came with it was too sour tasting for the meet. Honestly, these are nit picks because I want to make sure they are always improving. The place, atmosphere was great, and our waiter was fantastic. He was personable and accommodating. To me they should have a deeper set of local and organic options, but other than that, their food is fantastic.

We were greeted with a smile by our host. He escorted us to our table at a comfortable pace. The table was sat efficiently and correctly. The temperature was appropriate and the noise level was breakfast friendly. Our waitress was adorable, provided great service, and she was very knowledgeable about the menu items. Her presentation of the Honey from Heaven was spot on the homemade biscuit. The coffee was really good and hot. The coffee set up tray was beautiful and a nice accompaniment. The menu was explained well. The food was sooooo good with very large portions. I would definitely recommend the French Toast...yum! The check out process was seamless and efficient. The view was beautiful of the fog rising up from the river. It was fun to look out the window and see the chef's garden items. The restrooms were clean and well stocked.
