I've been to Barbacoa 4 times on business trips. I love this restaurant! One of the best Happy Hours with 2 for 1 drinks as well as appetizer specials.

Great cocktails... stellar martinis and I'll Be Your Huckleberry are tops on our list. It has a good atmosphere and some tasty eats! One of Boise's best.

We ate here on our one year anniversary and was it delish. Not just the food but the atmosphere as well. The interior is beautifully decorated with an amazing chandelier. The food was wonderfully presented. Kudos to Boise for housing a great restaurant.

If there's one place that blew me away in Boise, it was Barbacoa. It's a visual experience to drink in, with the huge bronze sculpture, the rooftop patio, the wine storage area and the unique lighting. We went for appetizers and drinks. The calamari was excellent, the mini tacos, the tableside guacamole, the flatnbread---all delicious. The martinis are served in... More

I'm disappointed this restaurant has so declined. We had reservations , yet I asked to not sit outside (over 100 F) they tried to sit us outside - nice restaurants always ask if you prefer outside first or was that I was dining with my 16 year old son, we were judged. Our waiter was not helpful with the menu.... More

Take your pick! Ambience - check! Location - check! Food - check, check! Presentation - check, check! Service - check, check, check! While this might be a restaurant that caters to the younger, trendy, business customer, we could not have been happier. The referral was from a hotel person. She was on the money with this restaurant. Outside of some... More

The good: simply awesome guacamole that is made to order based on your heat preference. The entrees were very tasty and somewhat unique. The patio view and outside ambience is superb The questionable: a bit pricey but I guess you're paying for the good food and a lot for the venue. The wild mushroom side was a bit gamey and... More
