Barbacoa is the restaurant to visit for special occasions or to entertain out of town guests. The staff is very attentive and professional. The restaurant really shows its stuff on holidays where their brunches rival a cruise ship in the variety and presentation of a full spectrum of offerings.

The is one amazing restaurant when it comes to ambiance! Wait staff is very attentive and the food is, truly, great. However, on the down side, it can be quite noisy. Intimate dining is best left to the bar area where the environment is softer and MUCH quieter. They do have and amazing patio in the spring and summer months,... More

Halibut was excellent as was the steak and pasta dish. It can get very crowded here, so reservations are a must. Large bar area and patio overlooks the water. Nice spot for... More

On the evening that we dined, I found the service to be slow, which was not a big problem since it gave us time to observe what others were ordering. The food was... More

Boise, Idaho. It's Sunday night. Where to dine? You know, I'm starting to really trust online reviews, as I did this night...Scott P's "Whaaaat?", JLROD07's "Excellent service" (speaking of patio area and view)...these and the other positive reviews got me to go there, and they...and Barbacoa...were RIGHT ON!! I could write about it for an hour, but I'll keep it... More
