Elevation 486 is an amazing restaurant! I have eaten here twice, once in the winter months when it was too chilly to sit outside, and tonight when it was warm and wonderful outside. The view is absolutely beyond compare, which makes up for any other possible flaws. Tonight there were no flaws. The service was impeccable, the food was wonderful... More

We arrived before 5:30 on a Friday evening and got a table on the patio without a reservation. The view into and across the canyon is fantastic. The service was prompt and friendly. I had a salad and the jumbo prawns. Both were good. Greens were fresh and flavorful. Prawns were properly cooked. The seasoning was not my favorite, however... More

We were going to have dinner, but ended up in the bar for happy hour specials 4-6pm. The staff wasn't very friendly, but nothing that would mar our experience. The views are great. They have a good beer selection. The buffalo wings were really good and we both loved the steak quesadilla, tender and tasty beef.

Average service, friendly staff, mediocre food; might be the best food in Twin Falls, but clearly the view is what makes the trip worthwhile here. Don't get me wrong, for a nice environment, I would recommend the stop, but don't expect world class fare

Our evening was nearly perfect. We waited well past our reservation time even though we arrived early. Such is not unusual for a popular restaurant and the rest of our meal was superb with one major exception. The crab, shrimp, & artichoke dip was a disaster. Having not much crab or shrimp in it was okay, but having the wrong... More

We met up with friends while we were traveling and found this gem. The view is spectacular, the food was delicious and the restaurant was decorated beautifully. The only thing that was not fantastic is that our server came a little too often. We were enjoying our conversations with each other and not really needing to much help.

Elevation 486 was the best restaurant we found in this year trip to the US. The location is very good (right on the canyon rim) and the service was good (my only remark is about being left waiting for a long time before seating despite the presence of many free tables which were still free when we left). The food... More

You enter this place wowed by a million dollar spectacle of the Snake River gorge below and beyond. Truly one of the best restaurant locations we've seen (and we've been most everywhere). You are seated in a well-furnished and decorated Western restaurant. The menu is original and pretty engaging with lots of options. Likewise the drink menu. The prices are... More

I meet my wife for dinner, we are not from Twin Falls. I drove to Twin just to spend the night and have a nice dinner out. My wives boss suggested the restaurant and we were glad he did. The service was excellent and the food was equally good. We will rweturn next time we are in Twin Falls.

We recently stopped by Elevation 486 on a warm summer evening to catch up with friends. We were outside on the deck on a Friday night with a spectacular view of the Golf Course in the canyon and of course the bridge. It was a bit crowded but not too noisy outside. The service was a little slow, but it... More
