Description: Welcome to the historic Steam Plant, site of an award-winning preservation effort and a landmark Spokane destination. The Steam Plant was built in 1916 and provided radiant steam heat to over 300 buildings in downtown Spokane until it closed in 1986. Avista and Wells and Company renovated the building and re-opened it in 1999, preserving much of the original working plant. While you're here, be sure to take a moment for a self-guided tour. Narrative displays are located throughout this one-of-a-kind building. We hope you enjoy our distinctive approach to dining, in which we work with local farmers and ranchers to create dishes that celebrate the best our region has to offer.

Had the black bean lentil hummus and chicken sandwich (with sweet potato fries). Both were excellent. Service was a bit slow, but the staff was friendly. Cool building and atmosphere.

“fabulous atmosphere”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

Scallops were overcooked but presentation and flavour was excellent. Interior decor made the place though. Really good job of building a modern restaurant within the old steam plant fittings and equipment. Great job!

“No service. Walked out”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

Went for dinner last night. Waited a while for acknowledgement and service. Asked for a wine list. It never came. We never had a chance to order and walked out. Told bartender that service needed to be better as we left. He had no comment. Staff talking amongst themselves and to their friends boyfriends. Don't bother.

“Perfect Date night, family special night or business dinner environment”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

The meals are wonderful the building history makes it a one of a kind experience and a must do for visitors. We entertain friends from outside the city, state and country and this is definitely one of the top dinner options for us. A little pricey but worth it, the service is impressive, meals are incredible and self tour of the plant makes for an interesting evening conversation. All six of us had wonderful meals we all liked and tasted from my in-laws to my kids ages 65-8 and our appetizer was a hit for all as well, special parties would be impressed with the banquet areas, Prom dates would be impressed to be escorted here for dinner! here's a menu site http://www.steamplantspokane.com/documents/Dinner%20Menu%20-%20January%202014.pdf

Our waitress was super friendly, and had great suggestions for not just the dinner, but the dessert menu as well. We decided to share a dessert (4 of us in total) and she brought us out extra forks and (because it was my birthday) an extra little dessert for us all to try as well. Both were super yummy, as well as our dinner. (we all had something different and did the "official taste test" and I can say we were ALL very happy with our choices, as well as each others choices) <3
