Fresh seafood is the top priority for Anthony’s — the restaurant company works directly with fishermen and shellfish suppliers to make sure every last salmon, swordfish and oyster meets a high standard. But diners don’t need to know the details to appreciate the fine-dining atmosphere, daily specials, happy hour offerings and — perhaps most impressive — the postcard view of the Spokane Falls.

Perched on the seventh floor of the Coeur d’Alene resort, Beverly’s unparalled panoramic views of the lake, combined with cosmopolitan decor, attentive service and a wine cellar boasting more than 14,000 bottles, combine for an elegant dining experience worthy of a special celebration. (July 2013)

Bistro on Spruce is a lovely little neighborhood bistro located in Coeur d’Alene’s recently renovated midtown. This is where discriminating locals come to find a menu that’s incredibly diverse, with offerings like duck confit, shrimp and grits and togorashi-encrusted ahi, and an atmosphere that begs you to linger.

The Black Cypress is dream-like, filled with mirrors and Edison lights, funky recycled metal fixtures against 100-year-old exposed brick. The menu tightropes between old world and new, reflecting the agricultural bounty of the Palouse while maintaining decidedly Mediterranean roots. With Greek-style meat sauce and mizithra cheese, the Kima is divinely aromatic. The Pasta pomodoro is light with fresh tomatoes and basil, olive oil and Parmesan. Traditional carbonara gets an upgrade with house-smoked bacon. (July 2013)

With its elegant koi pond and impeccable service, this pan-Asian eatery offers a delightful blend of Chinese, Japanese and Thai foods. The TW roll (fresh water eel, avocado and cucumber) and Rainbow roll (California roll topped with chef’s choice of seafood) are two excellent sushi choices. (July 2013)

This isn’t lakeside dining — when you eat at Cedars’ floating restaurant, you’re dining on the water at the confluence between the Spokane River and Lake Coeur d’Alene. Seafood is the specialty here and the smoky, cedar-planked, wild-caught salmon is consistently good. The patio is the place to be. You can even arrive by boat and tie up at one of Cedars’ docks.

This restaurant at the Coeur d’Alene Casino incorporates locally foraged mushrooms, bitterroot, camas root and shore-netted sockeye. Steaks — filet mignon, ribeye, baseball-cut top sirloin, cedar-flamed porterhouse (for two) — are cooked over open flame using locally harvested apple wood. In the summer, order the huckleberry ice cream, showcasing North Idaho berries, that’s made right at your table and flash-frozen using liquid nitrogen. (July 2013)

Don Draper would fit in beautifully at Churchills, with its luxurious, masculine décor, top-shelf cocktails and traditional (in all the best ways) takes on sides and steaks. The star of the show here is the USDA prime Midwestern beef that’s dry-aged, then cooked at 1800 degrees. The sides are a la carte, and the Cougar Gold mac and cheese is worth every single calorie.

With excellent food, service and view of the river, Clinkerdagger sets the standard for reliable fine dining in Spokane. The restaurant’s pea salad, rock salt prime rib or crème brûlée have become beloved favorites since the restaurant opened during Expo ‘74. Want to try something new? Order off the seasonal menu, featuring fresh and locally grown ingredients. (July 2013)

Clover
Clover, which opened in May 2012, is the joint effort of owners Scott and Liz McCandless and Paul and Marta Harrington. They prepare almost everything from scratch, don’t have a deep-fat fryer, and desserts — called petite bites — are scaled down in size. From herbs grown in the on-site greenhouse to the sustainably raised Rathdrum wheat used in Clover’s bakery, ingredients are carefully sourced. And the bar... well, Paul Harrington wrote the book on modern cocktails. The restaurant got a nice first birthday gift of recognition from Food & Wine — a spot on the Top 100 New American Bars list in the magazine’s Cocktails 2013 book. (July 2013)

You choose Dockside at the Coeur d’Alene Resort for the exceptional view — all booths face out to the lake — and a sprawling menu that runs from steak and fettucine, to burgers, ribeye steaks and sesame-crusted ahi tuna. The salad bar is always popular, along with Dockside’s signature ice cream sundaes. All six scoops. (July 2013)

Since its inception in 2003, Downriver Grill has gained a hard-core following of foodie regulars. Whether you want to go comfort food (butternut squash mac and cheese gratin $15), Italian (puttanesca, $15), gluten-free (shrimp bisque, $5), or vegan (coriander-crusted tofu, $16), there’s a little something to keep you coming back.

Located in the same building as the Highland Day Spa, with views of the neighboring golf course, Fleur de Sel caters to diners who are looking for French cuisine at an affordable price point. The restaurant changes its menus seasonally, but the best time to visit is in summer, when you can dine on their cozy, sun-drenched patio. And don’t leave too early — you’ll want to stick around and sample from Fleur de Sel’s much-lauded dessert menu. (July 2013)

Desserts are made fresh daily and frequent specials include the "soup of the moment." On warm days, the floor-to-ceiling slider windows are opened for a pleasant breeze. (May 2014)

Squatting directly off the highway in Liberty Lake, Hay Jay’s Bistro’s blocky strip-mall exterior — and book-cover first impressions — are immediately overturned the second you open the door. Inside, the bistro is pure class, with candle flames flickering atop wine bottles at the tables, and metallic vine sculptures wrapping around wine bottles on the walls. With a wine list boasting 100 choices, and a wine bar next door, the selection manages to live up to the hype set by the décor. The relatively pricey menu boasts steaks, tapas, burgers, pastas and risottos — but seafood remains the most popular genre. (July 2013)
