Convenient, good food, a bit pricey

This restaurant is located inside Boise Hotel, so I ate there for convenience. Waiter was very attentive and the food was excellent. I thought the prices were a little steep ... burgers from $8.25 and steak from about $19 and up. Guests at the hotel get a 10% discount off the entree.

What a surprise to find an ALL IDAHO TAPAS MENU! This menu was all Idaho foods sourced within 25 miles of the restaurant. The wine list was all Idaho wines. The theme is small plates with shareable bites of lamb, duck, brisket, chicken, vegetables, and even sturgeon. The Chef has done an amazing job showcasing local foods and preparing them... More

Ate breakfast here. It was a large breakfast for $5. But could only eat there 1 morning because on Saturday they only had 2 people working. A sign that said wait to be seated and no one to seat you. People then came in and walked infront of us and sat down. We sat down and waited 20 minutes but... More

The poor stay in the nearby Super 8 was countered by an excellent dinner here. Not particularly cheap, but a pleasant change from the usual American fare (deep fried, covered in batter, sugar, cheese or honey). The waitress was very attentive. Highly recommended.

I can only speak to my one meal…teriyaki chicken fingers in the lounge. They we not soaked in teriyaki, they we SO covered in a thick "sauce", they were virtually impossible to eat without making a mess. Couldn't touch anything while eating them because they were so thick with sauce. I expected teriyaki soaked chicken. Not what I got.

A little hidden gem in Boise... We went there on a Saturday evening when almost all the other restaurants were packed. It was slow, being a business man's hotel on a Saturday, but the Food and service were spectacular. Best Steak I have had in several years, and these guys get it! I ordered it medium and it was actually... More

Came here after finding several reviews saying best steak in Boise. Nothing is farther from the truth. Got bone in ribeye medium rare. Tasted like a hamburger patty. Even had to walk to back to find someone to get seated. Don't waste your time or money here...I already have.

Chris, the front end guy, was super helpful and chef David's food was "to die for". We came in late but Chris had David create a special sautéed veggie plate for us and it was divine! Our chicken sandwich was equally amazing, flavorful, with a house made bun, and the bill was so incredibly reasonable we simply had to leave... More
