We are blessed to be in this one-in-a-million location, perched on the south rim of The Canyon, in the great state of Idaho, 486 vertical feet above the beautiful Snake River. On a clear day you can see Soldier Mountain to the northwest, the Pioneer Range due north and Pomerelle to the east. What they say is true.. Location is everything!

A spinach salad offered with dried cranberries, pecans, and "blue cheese sprinkles" sounds good, right? Why then would you add cherry tomatoes? Terrible execution of a possibly great salad. I ordered the Pacific Northwest Pasta and it was excellent with the exception of the cruncy Thai or Chinese farmed shrimp. My husband enjoyed the clams in a savory lemony broth,... More

Driving through we needed an entertaining stop for lunch. The food was delicious and the view was beautiful. Unfortunately the staff and service as well as kids options were a let down. From the greeter to the waitress the staff seemed in shock as if they weren't expecting diners. We had to chase down our own cutlery and the service... More

We walked to this restaurant from the Fairfield Inn and were surprised to have a great view (over the Snake River Gorge) and a nice menu and ambiance! I had delicious Idaho steelhead trout, a generous portion and I had to eat every bite. Nice wine selection, and a coupon from the hotel gave either 10% off an entree or... More

Great view. Great service. Great food. Since it is inside the Art Council there is new art on the walls.

I really want to like this place. I love the location. Love the idea of a nice restaurant in Twin Falls. It's just...the food. This is an overall review of the last 4 times I have visited in the past months. To be fair, there have been a couple dinners that were good. A good hamburger, a great salmon. Lunch... More

As a California native and someone who lives in wine country, I find it very difficult to find food of a high quality that I am used to when I visit my parents. This spot is THE best restaurant in Twin Falls, ID.
