Beautiful view

What a lovely experience! We were seated next to a bay of large windows looking out over the Columbia river and the woods around, as well as the mountains on the Washington side. Great service, our waitress was wonderful and friendly, up front about what was good and what we might not enjoy as... read more

Lovely ambience. We had a horrible waitress at dinner; she was rushed, not interested in our dining experience, not attentive, friendly or professional. Dinner was overpriced for the quality and portions; very few temptations for a foodie. We had the cesar salad and salmon; very underwhelming. The pasta selection was limited to one with a cream sauce and then there... More

We had a leisurely lunch in a beautiful turn of the century setting. Everyone was very friendly and service was good. The food was tasty. I had a BLTM ( with mozzarella ) and my husband had 'the Hook' which was a steelhead salmon sandwich. The sweet potato fries were excellent.

This was a visit for lunch while on a road trip traveling to Spokane. Food was well prepared and presented. I had the Spinach and Strawberry Salad. It was large and delicious. Dining room is old style and service is good but slow. This is a place to go and linger not for a quick bite. However we wanted to... More

Friday night in the Gorge, dreaming of romantic after-dinner coffee and dessert to watch the ospreys soar over the Columbia. We decided to try the Columbia Gorge Hotel for its view and deck overlooking the river. While waiting to be seated outside, the ONE waitress came in looking flustered and exhausted. She asked another worker to please help her, there... More

Loved it all. A romantic setting with 1920's fixtures and motif. We also had snacks in the grandest bar with large fireplace and an old piano player who has been playing here since the 1940's.

Dinner at sunset overlooking the Columbia River in this historic site was wonderful. The service was personal and very attentive. The food was outstanding: scallops that were so tender they melted in my mouth!

Great Meals, enjoyed both the breakfasts and dinners. Snacks in the Valentinl Bar were served from the restaurant and were a great compliment to adult beverages.
