Came here for our anniversary dinner. I had only been here one other time and only had wine so this was my first time trying the food. We made a reservation and when we arrived we were sat in the back patio area which was enclosed but still cold. We asked to move to another table and the hostess seemed... More

Unusual fusion of hedonistic design elements and good food. Have been here several times with different groups of friends and family and the food is great. I prefer the steak that comes out on a sizzling hot rock and they pour cognac sauce over it and light it on fire. Fun to experience and tastes really good. The only dessert... More

This restaurant will grab your attention the minute you step toward the door. Decor is massive in scale with unique pieces. The women's bathroom is hot pink and surprisingly not tacky! Our waiter, Esau, was fantastic. The special menu was at least 8 dishes - we tried the grilled ceasar and ahi salad, excellent. The kebobs, excellent. The bouillabaisse with... More

That's the question I always ask myself walking into this fantastic place. It could be in San Francisco, New York, or any other major metropolis. Great atmosphere, fantastic cocktails and food.

We went for a special date night. My Husband's food was perfect. Our appetizer was only ok and I'll admit that they definitely know how to cook a steak. The problem was that my mashed potatoes had a plastic wrapper in them. I thought it was onion or something and didn't notice until after it was in my mouth! The... More

This was our first time during our visit to Boise. A friend took us and we loved the fun, well done decor. The food was excellent and the service was very good. My only complaint was my water was not being refilled frequently enough. I pointed it out to our server (gently) and that fixed that issue. In fact, our... More
