It's hard to imagine a more stunning location for a memorable meal. With outstanding views of the Falls and Snoqualmie River, The Dining Room at Salish Lodge & Spa provides a first-of-the-season experience. Our menu features Northwest cuisine with flavors that sing the virtues of local and homegrown, using the best ingredients and refined cooking techniques. We pay attention to the seasoning and the plating. Everything you're going to see and taste that will provide that anticipated Salish experience. Come in for our Salish Lodge Country Breakfast, a lodge tradition featuring a four-course breakfast, including our famous steel-cut oats and the iconic Honey from Heaven service wherehoney from our hives is poured from high above your plate onto your buttery house-made biscuits. Or bring friends in for brunch and enjoy a relaxing meal by the fire. Of course, The Dining Room is most magical at dinnertime, and just what you would expect in the finest luxury resort in Washington. Select from an extraordinary line-up of creations using first-of-the-season locally sourced ingredients for an unforgettable meal. We also have an extensive wine list (including our own private label still and sparkling wines), and an outstanding selection of local artisan cheeses. Join us and create your own wonderful memories with family and friends. Reservations strongly recommended.

We had a dinner here while staying at the hotel. Food was expensive and very disappointing, big portions but nothing special. Service was slow and not effective. It's not worth the price and I sure won't come back there again.
