The food is wonderful. If you like a good salad this is the place! We've never had a bad meal here. Been several times for lunch and dinner. Be sure and make a reservations.

We visited Hay J's after a member of our group recommended it to us. It's about a 20 minute ride from downtown Spokane, but well worth it! The menu has enough variety to suit all palettes and it's reasonably priced. We all skipped on appetizers and salads in order to really enjoy our entrees, but they looked delicious and I... More

We also enjoyed an appetizer of calamari which was sooo good. to compliment this fine meal we enjoyed a bottle of Hay J's Cabernet which was excellent. The service was excellent and the food well...

Great ambience and excellent service. Friendly and attentive. Seafood pasta was some of the best in Spokane and the beef was first class. Deserts were five star. A little pricey but well worth it. Our visiting guest was very impressed.

I have been going to Hay-Jay's since it first opened and it has been one of my favorite restaurants in the Spokane/CDA area. It is a hidden gem within a gas station parking lot and I have highly recommended it to all of my friends and family. I have always enjoyed the atmosphere and my meals, until last night. I... More

Smallish restaurant in a strip center. It seems to have quite a local following on a Saturday night. The three of us were seated and promptly offered drinks and appetizers. Strong beer list and wine by the glass. My son and wife were happy with their entrees - the medallions and the steak. I got shellfish risotto. It was well... More

Our large group of ten had a delightful experience at Hay J's Bistro!! Our reservations were respected with a quick seating. The prosciutto wrapped prawn appetizer and sea food chowder were very nice. Entrees ranged from lamb chops to New York steaks to sea food risotto to beef medallions. Each meal was very nicely prepared and presented, receiving glowing reviews... More

Looks like a little bistro - but the food is just amazing. We had eaten here before so my daughter held her wedding rehearsal dinner here and the group just raved about their entrees. The beef medallions are the best I have ever eaten. The fish and lamb entrees are mouth watering and the salads are excellent. Not one complaint... More

I come to Spokane 2-3 times a year for work and on every visit we try to have lunch at Hay J's. On this last trip we went two days in a row! I really love their Ladieu salad (greens, grapes, goat cheese, candied nuts and huckleberry dressing) it is so tasty and a real treat. I also had their... More

This is a regular stop for us. We think the food is great here. It would appear the word is out as, today, we needed a reservation to get in. I had forgotten what we ordered last time so after reading my last review - it would appear we revisited an old favorite: the Seafood Trio Rissito. It was as... More
