Cascade Dining Room - Gleneden Beach
Cascade Dining Room Westin Salishan: Cascade Dining Room

This is a beautiful dining room which manages to be elegant and casual at the same time thanks to a combination of white tablecloths yet wood paneling, fine china but colorful carpeting and floor to ceiling windows which expose a tremendous view of the coast. The staff is friendly and eager to make recommendations on wine and food.

Dinner was fantastic. This is one of those places where each menu item comes with about 10 adjectives and sauces galore, so those of you who like to keep it simple may not like this place. Fresh oysters with smoked bacon, wontons and roasted pepper aioli is a good start. The oysters are raw and the aioli makes a great compliment in lieu of horseradish.

The main course I had was pan seared halibut with wild nettle pasta (I still don't know what that is but it was green and tasted like spinach) and roasted vegetables. The fish was fresh, fall off the fork tender and delicious. The menu is varied and includes duck, steak and pasta for those who do not like seafood.

For dessert, if you still have room, I'd recommend the creme brulee. It tasted of real vanilla and had a layer of caramel on top. Fantastically sweet, and it goes well with a glass of port.

Favorite Dish: The whole meal was great but the halibut was out of this world amazing.

Cedar Tree Restaurant - Gleneden Beach
Cedar Tree Restaurant: Cedar Tree Restaurant

The Salishan's more casual restaurant, which still has great views and great food. There are no white tablecloths here and, instead you'll find more comfortable booths, a high beamed ceiling and an open view of the kitchen.

I came here twice for breakfast and ordered a sandwich from room service one night and enjoyed everything that I ate. The breakfast menu goes beyond the standard American a.m. staples: shrimp omelets, wheat germ pancakes and hazelnut yogurt are just some of the choices. There's standard breakfast fare as well. But the apple oat pancakes were pretty good.
