The Dining Room at Salish Lodge & Spa Restaurant Review: Elegantly rustic, with striking views, The Dining Room at Salish Lodge & Spa is distinctly Northwest, like its menu, which features quality ingredients presented with sophistication and whimsical touches, especially for desserts. The chef's tasting menu allows guests to sample a range of dishes, and each is offered with optional wine pairings. Starters may include a silky apple and chestnut bisque or a roasted beet salad with blue cheese, pears and hazelnuts. The foie gras “S’mores” are a tad fussy with their chocolate-spiced crostini and lavender marshmallow graham cracker dust. Notable entrées have included a fennel pollen-dusted halibut and lamb loin with caramelized garlic, foraged mushrooms, and mint-lemon gremolata. For the best vantage point from which to gaze at the 268-foot-high Snoqualmie Falls or for a special evening, request one of the private alcoves. Salish Lodge's Country Breakfast has a well-earned reputation as one of the best and most substantial morning meals in the area. For a more informal, less expensive dining experience, visit The Attic, a small upstairs bar with a casual menu and comparable views.
