    Really disappointed again. Had very slow service when we were here in February. I sense the kitchen is small because historically food has taken a long time to get to the table from when we order (about 30 minutes at least). This experience had our reservation waiting to be seated though there were plenty of empty tables. We waited for a server. Waited for the wine tough the server was quick to bring it when we asked where it was and then the food was another long wait hovering at 45 minutes. Sadly, visiting Suncadia means being trapped among a few restaurants. With the prices kicking up to $55 for sea bass, among others, this is not worth the experience.

    As always, Hoist House never fails. The food is consistently top notch. However, there were too many yellow jackets on the patio to fully enjoy the meal this time.

    We wanted one special family dinner while on vacation and after looking at many menus online, we decided on Hoist House feeling confident there would be something for our picky eaters. The menu did not disappoint. The steaks were cooked perfectly and potatoes were tasty. My kiddos got the flatbreads and they enjoyed it although the kid menu cheese pizza was the same size and the regular menu flatbread. Not a problem for my 10 yr old but other parents might want to know this. My husband and I got the red wine flight to help decide which bottle we wanted. It included 5 reds and we settled on The Swiftwater Syrah which was lovely. Our server was efficient and kind but didn’t bother us too much. The restaurant was busy with what looked like a wedding party and rather loud but we were still able to carry on conversations at our table. The view was pretty and we were able to walk out back and take a few pics as the sun was going down. Very wonderful experience and I highly recommend.

    The food was amazing and the waitress very nice. We waited an extremely long time for our food, we were sat outside and it was around 100 degrees. When the food arrived, two of the six did not receive their food. The food finally arrived after the others had finished eating. This should have been noticed earlier and taken care of. We would go back again and give it another chance.

    As this was our first trip to Suncadia, we were told by many friends we must eat at Hoist House. We were certainly not disappointed. Despite being a busy weekend with a wedding/reception onsite, Hoist House was well staffed with professional servers and support staff. Our entrees were exceptional - both the filet mignon and ravioli - perfectly prepared and wonderful seasonings! Will definitely make this a must visit our next time to Suncadia.

    All the meals were made to perfection and were very tasty! Coming from a French family ,who owned a French restaurant, we are all very picky when it comes to food of any kind. So, let me say that absolutely everything (steelhead, salmon seabass,tenderloin,peach caprese salad, the pork belly app. , the ricotta with honey and flatbread app. and your white mac and chesse) were fantastic!!!! Compliments to all the chefs and staff! My Parisian father can't stop raving about his tenderloin and the Pinot Noir wine especially! I have been here numerous times and I have never been dissapointed! Well done Hoist House and Swiftwater cellars/winery!

    We had a wonderful dinner at Swiftwater Cellars and were graciously accommodated with our vegetarian teenaged daughter, and our greyhound on vacation with us. We had a lovely table outside and every part of the evening was spot on. Highly recommended for a special night out, or for when you want to treat yourself.

    The best food!! The chef here is incredible. You can tell that they really care about the quality of the food and it shows because the steelhead and tenderloin we ordered were both so delicious!! Everything was cooked perfectly. The wine flights are also really good. I only wish they were closer to Bellevue/Seattle area so we could eat here often!! We will be back!

    We always end our Suncadia trips at Swiftwater for a steak and butter cake. Sadly they were out of the cake, but as always, the steak was amazing. If you haven’t tried them, get their fries. Seriously the best ever. Thanks Cameron and Swiftwater for a great evening!

    We had a reservation for a group of nine, they squeezed us into a high top by just adding extra chairs. Not exactly what we expected for seating at this nice of a restaurant. Luckily a few were kids so we could make it work. Food was mostly very good. One flatbread came out incorrect and only one dish was not good at all (don’t order the succotash) but the salmon and steak were cooked perfectly and the often overlooked vegetarian dish (a seasonal ravioli) was excellent. Service overall was good and I appreciate them accommodating kids at a nicer place (special cups, crayons, and the food from kids menu was quite good, I’d order the grilled cheese for myself lol).

    Driving to Seattle from Spokane or vise versa, the Hoist House at Swiftwater Winery is a perfect spot to stop, eat, drink, and refresh. The atmosphere is enjoyable and the for is excellent. Although wine is prevalent, I enjoyed a delicious Maker’s Mark Old Fashion.
