MONTVALE: The hotel is a stunning historic renovation, and really well done. If you have a chance to run inside, make sure to make it up to the 2nd floor lobby. It's a rare experience to understand what public space used to be, and how it used to function. It is warm, inviting, and is the type of space meant to spark conversation and banter with community and strangers that may be friends. It's from a time where it was vital and stop and talk with people - to learn the weather down the road, the news of the town, etc. In the past, hotels played an unbelievably important role in the development of a town's community - the Montvale was no different. To see it brought back to life, instead of turning into a new build on the same space, is incredible. It's a beautiful spot, and fairly amazing to have survived all that downtown development. The rooms are well done for historic, and relatively spacious. The ceilings are really high. The interiors are appropriate - intoning history without replicating it. It's a very special place, and I can't wait to go back. SCOUT: Ate here a couple times throughout my stay in Spokane. High marks for what it is - a imaginative diner / bar food concept in an awesome historic hotel. The interiors are not only appropriate, but really engaging. It's well thought out, as is the menu. It caters to almost any interest, while still providing the diner / bar experience - it's just that the menu has more depth than you would expect. It's concise, but I never had an easy time deciding. My breakfast sandwich was fantastic, and the Grinder was a very simple italian hoagie, but warm and delicious. With an obvious nod to local purveyors, they source from as nearby as possible. When I make it back, I will be back to this place.... cheers! The Catacombs:This is such an awesome bar. It reminds me of the bar at an old hotel I worked at in Boulder, Colorado, but only in name and the fact that it is subterrenean. This is a wide open space, with rich interiors. It used to be Boiler Room for the hotel. Now they have a beautiful pizza oven make great, quirky, delicious pizzas, with a REALLY awesome underground bar experience. It's got beautiful wooden interiors, and it's an incredibly warm, masculine experience - it feels solid and safe. It's a place to warm up when it's chilly... for sure.

I used to enjoy coming to Catacombs. The location and the decor of the restaurant is pretty neat, the drinks are good, and most of the restaurant is supposed to be a bar which gives it a nice adult atmosphere and a break from constant exposure to other peoples' little brats. I recently came again for a date on a Saturday night, and the entire restaurant (including the area that is supposed to be 21+) was full of little children. My date and I left before we even received our menus and went to Scratch.

Not for the Under 21 crowd. I purchased a coupon online so decided to give the catacombs a try as we were headed to the Symphony and it is close to the Fox Theater. I called ahead to make a reservation and was told that we did not need one, just to call when were on our way down. I did call on the way and was asked what turned out to be a very important question "were there any minors in our group of 2" Yes, it was my son and I. Come to find out the Catacombs is not very friendly to the under 21 set. When we arrived we were told that the only 2 tables available for minor seating were already reserved! So we would have to sit at the pizza bar. Things were whisked aside on what was clearly a workspace nearly into the wait staff station and we were seated at our 'table' which was quite dirty, since no one had bothered to wipe it down. We ordered starters (the cheese & fruit plate and bruschetta) dinners (bratwurst pizza and Perpetua’s Salad) and dessert (Big Fat Chocolate Cake) along with 2 glasses of wine and 2 bottles of Thomas Kemper root beer. Total bill before tip and coupon was $78) The food was pretty OK. The bruschetta and the pizza were both very nice. and the chocolate cake was lovely, plenty big enough for 2. The chicken on my salad was dry and over cooked, but the lettuce was crisp and fresh. The cheese and fruit plate was enormous. There was well over a pound of cheese on the board, sadly it was not quality cheese and it appeared to have been cut some time in the past as the edges of the cubes were very rounded. The flavors were not distinct and with the exception of the swiss were virtually unidentifiable. The fruit was a half an apple sliced. The cheese board was plopped in front of us without explanation and when I was able to grab my server and ask what the cheeses were she took some guesses. She thought the soft cheese might be feta... I am still not sure what it was, but I am pretty certain it was NOT feta, as it lacked the characteristic tang. Actually I liked it very much and would be curious to know what it really was! I would much rather had some small bites of fine cheese paired with fruits and jams than have this huge pile of unidentifiable cubes. Service was at best OK. They were not very good about checking on us, despite the fact that we were practically sitting in the waitress station. The atmosphere in the over 21 area looked cozy and warm. Where we were seated we got a blast of the very cold outside air every time someone came in. I would consider going back with my husband for a few drinks, but would not go there for a meal or with a minor again.

Seated on a slow Tuesday night and then ignored. After ten minutes and watching a table seated after us served their wine, we left. Avoid

We loved this place! The crackling fire, the caves, and the artisan pizzia oven centrally placed, all made for an excellent winter atmosphere. The menu was fresh for Spokane, yet kept picky eaters covered (pizzia!). Our entrees were delicious, and very reminiscent of authentic european comfort food. Now, I beg the owner to hire more servers and coach the hostess a bit.

Still waiting on food have not been checked on in over 15 minutes suttle hints do not seem to be working... Must lose lots of money to poor service I came in prepared for it based on other reviews and now have confirmed its validity.

Decent food, but the service was very poor.
