Positives: Downriver Grill is the perfect affordable fine dining experience in Spokane. It looks like a fine dining restaurant. It feels like a fine dining restaurant. It tastes like a fine dining restaurant. But, alas! When the bill arrives you discover that it’s only about 1/3 the price of most other fine dining restaurants.
Negatives: Downriver Grill does everything well. It’s best characterized as a faux fine dining experience. Good news is even faux fine dining is still fine dining. That is to say, they so faux, they almost real.
Recommendation: Downriver Grill is likely the best affordable fine dining experience in Spokane. Much of their food is locally sourced and their menu is creative.
