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!

Great food with a fantastic view

My wife and I have been here a number of times. It is our favorite restaurant in Twin Falls. The last time I had salmon--it was cooked just right and quite tasty. As on previous visits, the service was friendly and efficient. One of the best things about the restaurant is its magnificent view of... read more

Our kids played in the water fountain while my husband and I enjoyed drinks and the halibut and chips. It was excellent, we love elevation 486!

I am normally very excited to go to Elevation. My friends and I went to lunch and had Shannan as our server. When she brought my salad, it had an obvious hair sticking out of it. When I told her, she made a vague sound. She did exchange it for a new one but she seemed to be inconvenienced. I... More

Tried this out on our Anniversary weekend. Nice atmosphere, awesome view! The huckleberry butter was soooo good! I had seafood linguine (very small oysters we get in Idaho) but it was pretty good. The hubby had duck and wasn't too impressed. We were hoping to get out on the balcony but they wouldn't accept reservations. When we peered outside most... More

Used trip advisor to find good food on the way to Boise. Excellent Twin Falls stop. Great view on rim of canyon, wonderfully tasty food. Friendly staff. Great ambiance. Tri-tip sandwich and side spinach salad with vinaigrette - yum! Prime rib special in background. Philly cheesesteak delicious.

This is a great restaurant both for its food and it's view. The menu has something for everyone and the food is delicious. We went without dessert. On the way out we saw a dessert tray and I knew immediately that skipping dessert was a big mistake! Next time I'll start with dessert! 😉 The view of the gorge is... More

We came to Elevation for a lunch meeting today and I had the Tri Tip sandwich. It was fantastic! Grilled onions, juicy tri tip, sauteed mushrooms, and smoked gouda on soft seasoned bread. OMG. NEVER take this off your menu! (The incredible view alone is reason enough to visit! Make sure to sit on the patio for the full experience!)

I revived the best service from Melissa Cortes! She was so friendly and had extensive information on the canyon.. I felt like family she smiled all the time it made every part of my meal more enjoyable.. Melissa suggested a drink from the bar "a mojito" it was the best I have ever had. I defiantly had more than one.... More

My husband and I came in for dinner about 6pm and we were so amazed how beautiful the view was of the canyon and snake river. Our service was on point. Best service that we have ever had. Our server was Melissa Cortes. She was very efficient and very sweet. My husband and I will absolutely be dining here again... More

Checked out Elevation 486 on a Friday night. Located on the south rim of the Snake River Canyon in a shiny new 3(?) story building.. Did not have reservations. Couple in front of us did not have reservations either and when they asked about the bar the hostess said it was slammed. We skirted her to check it ourselves because... More
