I have had better tasting prime rib for half the price elsewhere. There was no seasoning what so ever on the prime rib. Defeniatly was not worth the $80 spent for the two meals.
Horrible experience.. we will never go back. If you like slow service where it takes 20 minutes to even get a server and over an hour to receive your drink order after making complaints to management then this is your place... food was cold.. we spent 2 1/2 hours here for poor service and cold food. Don't waste your time or money there are far better restaurants within walking distance that take care of their customers with better prices and ambiance.
Overall a good experience, however with the open concept and all the stone very noisy restaurant.
However that would not stop me from coming back.
Good food, nice atmosphere after we got moved to a booth that had been requested at time of reservation. Before being moved they had squished everybody at one end of the dining room.
Would go again when attending the theatre. Super convenient. So convenient we stayed the night at the hotel and enjoyed the ease of valet parking.
The food was average given the price. We ate because of the proximity to The INB theater. IF we had more time, we would have chosen somewhere else
The waitress was Very Nice and Helpful. Entire Staff very Nice.
Awful! Took my teenagers here for what I had hoped was a special Thanksgiving dinner. Spent $185 for lukewarm food , no bread of any kind (it's Thanksgiving!) and very mediocre service. Caesar salad was literally three pieces of lettuce. I had never been before and I won't go back.
This is a brand new restaurant with excellent atmosphere. The food was good and service was friendly. The wine list was a little scant but overall this is a good upscale restaurant.
Grand Hotel and restaurant are too sterile. Looks and feels like a hospital, not a grand hotel. Food was way over priced. Service was attentive but that's about all.
We decided to treat ourselves before our Best of Broadway musical. The food is delicious and the service was wonderful. It is a busy place, which was expected, given the events going on in the area. The only reduction in 5-stars is the price. A party of two with one cocktail, one appetizer, two salads and two entrees, totaled $160 without the tip. That's a bit steep in the little town of Spokane, WA.
The food was very good. The service was OUTSTANDING!! Our server, Nicole, was just AWESOME!!!
A friend that I haven't seen in 6 years was in Spokane for business, so I drove from 2 hours north of Seattle to have dinner, catch up, stay the night and have breakfast before she had to leave. Another friend told me about your hotels and said we had to eat there and also to see the Davenport Historic hotel. We had a very long, relaxed dinner and 3 desserts. We both agreed that the rolo dessert was the best part of it. I also enjoyed the cucumber/jalapeño drink. The Historic is spectacular! Thank you for preserving such a treasure.
Great dining experience! The food was excellent and the service was exceptional! Will definitely return and highly recommend!
This was a 39th anniversary dinner but we were rather disappointed. We had been to Table 13 so we were looking forward to a first time visit at the Grand restaurant. Food was excellent, our server was very good but the atmosphere reminded me of a hotel coffee shop. The booth we were originally seated in sunk so that your chest hit the table, the overhead music track was very outdated and the couple across from us both had the paper open and were each reading. The latter was not something the Grand had done wrong but between the ambience, the readers and the music it was not a comparable atmosphere for the price of the food, even though the food was good (especially the mushroom soup). We consider dining surroundings as important as the food, service and drinks. Skip this one and go to Table 13
Their french dips changed my life! They were so good! And the service was great...very attentive, but didn't interrupt our evening. It was a great experience!
I have already sent an email to The Grand with no response (disappointing). There were four of us for dinner after a show at the INB. The service was great, even exceptional. The atmosphere of not only the restaurant but the hotel as well is just great. We thought that the food in such a place would be terrific, it was anything but. I ordered the prime rib, it did come the way I ordered it, medium rare. No flavor, very dull, not very tender. The potatoes and vegetable, dry and most left on the plate. The ladies both had fish and chips, both commented about the dryness and not very flavorful. I guess fries are fries but again, thought at The Grand they would be better than most. They were less than most. The other gentleman had the prime rib sandwich, he was not specific but said "I've definitely had better". We don't complain at the table, we just don't return. If we paid for the ambiance and the service, plus our very good cocktails and beer, we did get our moneys worth. To put it in a nutshell, we have had much better food at Dave's Bar and Grill in Spokane Valley for half the price.
We reserved a table for Mother's Day and were surprised that there was no special entertainment or menu.
Service was slow and the presentation of the meals was uninspired and not at all what I expected from a hotel of this pedigree. We won't be back.
We have been there twice before shows at the INB. Both times the restaurant was close to empty when we were there yet the service super slow and wait staff not attentive and, honestly, not friendly. Your prices should garner much better service. Figuring I'll maybe try one more time before I take this restaurant off my list. Third time a charm?
The Grand just doesn't come across as "grand." It is too modern , too stark, cold. Even the dining area feels more like a bar than an elegant restaurant. I guess we are spoiled feom having the Davenport and its admittedly old-fashioned elegance in Spokane.
First time here. Food was very good! Service was quite slow and waitress seemed kinda new.
The service was great. The main course was ok, not fabulous and not worth the money. The dessert was amazing! It's ok.
The three of us loved the selections available and our salads and sandwiches were delicious and tasty. The wait staff was pleasant and helpful. The only problem was our online reservation was not noticed by the restaurant. I received confirmation on my phone but the restaurant had no record of it. That was disappointing. Thankfully there was a table for us.
I booked this place for dinner with a couple of girlfriends. We had a girls get away for the weekend. It was a nice end to the day! The food was excellent! I had the prime rib dip and we ordered the Thai chicken flatbread and coconut prawns for appetizers. The prime rib may have been the BEST prime rib I've ever eaten! The waitress was very attentive and accommodating! We will definitely be back if we are ever in town again!
This was the first time that we had chosen to have dinner at the Grand Restaurant and Lounge, in the new Davenport Grant Hotel in downtown Spokane. In a word, the experience was fantastic! Great service, great food, and wonderful selection of wines, beers, and cocktails, and a nice quiet and very enjoyable modern ambiance. One of the many attractions on the menu was the availability of PRIME (not choice ...) beef, and even prime-grade prime rib, which was my dinner choice. All told, a very enjoyable dinner experience that we definitely indeed to repeat!
We celebrated Valentine's Day with good friends. I wanted something that was a little more festive than a very casual restaurant. We had a wonderful time and all were pleased with our choice. Prime rib dinner was especially outstanding. I assume it was served with a horseradish sauce that was delicious and not at all hot. The vegetables were tasty. And all four of us really loved the bread.
I was surprised how cheesie the tables and dining area looks. Great walls and decor around the edges but the tables and boothes feel like a casino or diner, not a $30 a plate place. The staff is very nice and the quality of the food is nice. However, the dinners don't include a side like bread or salad. Each plate had the meat and about 3 potato wedges and baby carrots. There really isn't anything special about it except the marble floors and nice bar.
Eclectic breakfast menu from oatmeal to Eggs Benedict. Substitution of bacon for ham on the Benedict was gladly done by our gracious server who was very attentive. Made to order omelet or scrambled egg WHITES easily accommodated. Fresh strawberry jam for our large pieces of whole wheat toast. Decor of the "in" greys and silver with a dash of red. Very straight modern lines in the eating space. Open and light with floor to ceiling windows on 2 sides. This was our second visit after the June 2015 opening. The kinks have been all ironed out!
For a restaurant that charges $50 per plate (6oz steak Oscar) I would expect something more that a sports bar atmosphere. The first place we were seated a table with a bench type seat on one side that didn't even line up with the table. My wife had to sit across in a equally uncomfortable chair. I ask to be moved and we were placed in a booth with a great view of...big screen tv's! The couple sitting across from us were dressed in sweat pants and the t-shirt with a ball cap. Great for a romantic and expensive dinner. My wife's salmon ($32) was just ok. Like I said the service was great, but sometimes you can get that at red robin. Next time we stay here I'll go to clinker daggers or Anthony's. (Or even the historic davonport).
The food was good, not great. Traffic thru the dining area was distracting. The bar being on the other side of a half wall is not what I expect when spending $65 a plate all in. Won't go back.
The server was fine. Not great. My wife was seated in a half seat due to a pole... seriously?!?
Although the food was good, nothing we ordered was memorable. The service, from the hostess to our waiter was efficient, but rather aloof and the noise level was so high it was difficult to carry on a conversation. To top it off, we had to pay for parking because it was an "event" night. Two entrees and 3 drinks later at $120, let's just say that we won't be back.
First we appreciate Walt Worthy. I can't say enough things about him, so as I write this review at your invitation it is with the hope that what I say is used constructively also, we have been fortunate enough to eat at some of the finest restaurants in the US and around the world. With that said, the dinning experience was bad. The restaunt was noise, loud was constantly blaring, and the lighting was like that found in a college classroom. The booths were uncomfortable. It was somewhat of a chore to get up and out of the booth. The food was boring at best. My steak had no seasoning, the vegetables which included peas were undercooked. The desert was the best thing. I hope this helps. The restaurant business is tough. Perfection, pride, first impression, and creativity are really important. Trust you will accept this with the hope that things will improve.
Aside from the loud modern(?) music and large open area, the door which allowed people to walk past our table as an apparent main entrance was very interruptive and cold. Our fish was over-cooked and the only good thing was the service. Of course, the prices reflected what the restaurant should have been. The restaurant was very disappointing when compared to such a great Hotel. It does not represent the high regard that we hold for Walt Worthy.
We were staying at the hotel and this was our first time visit to this restaurant. The food was great and service was good. This place is new and well decorated. We had a good time and will go back when we are in town
At the price charged I expect the food and service to be highest quality. The salad and dessert
were good. My wife and I both ordered prime rib and were specific about how done we wanted. Both of us got meat more rare than requested. My wife sent hers back to cook a little more. I ate the part that was sufficiently done but the rib eye portion was too rare and not tender. I brought it home and cooked it a bit more, which made it both tender and more palatable.
The server was pleasant and had good intentions but we have had servers who were more conscientious when it came to getting the meat right. He was a bit less than attentive and
appeared to be not as well trained as I would expect in such a restaurant.
We were very pleased with our server, food and entire experience. We will be back soon! Thank you for making our Christmas Eve dinner memorable. :)
We enjoyed the food, made a meal of appetizers. The service was A-one from Kristy and Nix.
My husband and I went here for a special occasion lunch. The food and presentation were excellent. Service was efficient and friendly, but not obtrusive. The decor is a feast for the eyes. We will definitely be going back!
I have been to your "Grand" restaurant two times now and probably will not come back (sorry you want me to be honest). The bench seating is too low and that was uncomfortable. I missed the step up to the table on the first time in the restraunt and almost hit the ground (took out my friend instead). The place just didn't seem quite finished. It was obvious that the benches had to be fixed and the step up to the table is a safety concern. Will check back in a year and see what improvements have been made. Sorry but I am truthful.
We were a party of six for dinner on thanksgiving day. We had a choice to sit at a table for eight or a booth which really seats four. We picked the table that seats eight. The food was wonderful. We all really enjoyed are meals. The service people were polite and great. We did have to ask for bread. It was not automatically served even though we had plates for bread. I also want to point out there was a family of six that were seated in a booth. They were very upset that they had reservations and were squeezed in a booth. The father had to have a chair brought and he was seated in the isle. The booths are really not for six people.
We had a group of 12 for our Thanksgiving dinner this year. We had our own private room at the restaurant which was great. The Thanksgiving 3 course dinner selection was excellent and the food was amazing. Our server Taylor was outstanding and very courteous and polite. Overall a great experience that night!
