“Way too expensive for mediocre food”
Review of Swiftwater Cellars

The view is very nice and we enjoyed the ambiance in the restaurant. The service was good, but not great. The big issue for us was the food was just mediocre and given the price we expected more. I wouldn't go back here and I also wouldn't recommend it to anyone unless you were just going for drinks and the view. For people with kids I would say its not really a family kind of place at least not at dinner time which is when we went.

Have eaten here several times in the past few months. The service, food and atmosphere is great. Try for a table on the windows, or patio if the weather is nice.

All the dishes are great, the planked salmon is probably the best. Everyone raves about it. I don’t think you can go wrong with any choice.

The staff is very attentive but not intrusive. Impeccable!

Highly recommend Swifttwater Cellars

Our first visit was for wine tasting & snacks. It was wonderful especially sitting out on the massive patio with amazing views. Our 2nd visit was for a fabulous dinner. The only disappointing thing was the gift shop closed at 6:00! And the restaurants was packed!! Not a good business call!

Like the title says.

Went here tonight and was shocked to see the patio empty. We gave it a go and soon realized why. The manager told us they now allow smoking and vaping in their restaurant.

The overwhelming smell of crappy cigars and watching dogs crap on the edge of the patio was just too much for us.

Sorry, but these kind of prices id think they would tell people to keep their swisher sweet cigars at home and have their dogs relieve themselves elsewhere.

Our family was traveling to Cashmere, Washington to do some white water rafting. We found this very awesome tasting room/ restaurant/golf course on our way. We had the fried cauliflower, meat tray and calamari. Every single bite was outstanding! As for the wine, we tried the Cabernet, Syrah and the Chardonnay (less oaky one). All three were flavorful and very drinkable (the Syrah was our absolute favorite and unfortunately we bought a bottle and dropped it in the parking lot later that day:(
Besides the wonderful food and wine, the property itself is absolutely gorgeous. Bring your camera and take some photos. The only problem we had was, we did not give ourselves enough time to really enjoy everything about this visit. This place is definitely worth a stop!!
