Had a get-together with a girlfriend and this was convenient to our other errands; had a nice lunch. Good waitstaff, pleasant atmosphere, food was good without being too-pretentious. We were surprised at two things: kind of lame coffee offerings, and that dessert was not suggested. Maybe they did not serve dessert, or maybe they were trying to get us to... More

I recently stayed in downtown Spokane with friends and we went to eat our first night at Herbal Essence Cafe based on a recommendation. We were not steered wrong. The restaurant is charming and was only a couple blocks from our hotel. I had a wonderful steak special that was served with a beautiful mushroom sauce. The steak was well... More

My wife and I have been driving cross country and stopped in Spokane for a couple of days. Walking around we noticed this small shop which we thought was a bath products store based on its name. Looking through the window we saw it is a small cafe and decided to have dinner there tonight. We ordered cranberry stuffed baked... More

Wonderful food and atmosphere, but the prices are not exorbitant! Not open most Sunday's and reservations are recommended.

I ate there for Spokane Restaurant Week, and my meal was perfect. My salmon cakes(2) as an appetizer, followed by the house salad, and my main course, the Pork Loin stuffed with dates and bacon were good to eat and perfectly presented. I had a reservation for 6:30 and there was only one other table occupied when I arrived. I... More

Herbal is always a great go to place for a business lunch, but I often forget about having dinner there. The offerings on the 2016 RW menu were all so darn good, and such a value for $29. Portions are big, I made two meals out of it. Don't miss this as a for sure spot to visit!

Food is great, service fantastic and Chef/Owner Ryan makes you feel at home and well cared for. This is not a chain with frozen food sent in from elsewhere- home cooking at its best

In the heart of downtown Spokane one would expect busy, but it was quiet at 7:00 when I arrived with many available tables. So just walk in if you want a great meal. Their special was halibut baked with spinach, served with a nice rice and an assortment of garden veggies done just right. The small garden salad was large... More

Herbal Essence is our "go to" restaurant for a nice time. The menu has a good variety of items that are reasonably priced for the quality of food the kitchen prepares. It is open for lunch and a great spot to take visitors or meet your family here. It is cozy and perfect for your special dinner out. The Spring... More

First of all I dont like to trash restaurants having managed a number of them in the past so I'm not very hard to please. In the case of Herbal Essence the reviews looked promising. The decor is quaint and the service was very personal and efficient. The menu items at least on paper looked innovative. We selected the cranberry... More
