This was a girlfriends get-away weekend and our first stop was Barbacoa. Although Boise has some really great eateries we did not top our meal here. The food was terrific, the service was friendly, professional and fun and the atmosphere is quirky and happy. Go! I'm planning another Boise trip just to eat here!

We were seated immediately when our reservation time came up. Our waiters were prompt, courteous, and attentive. They explained the menu options and specials very thoroughly and made recommendations. The décor is a delight to the senses.

This place is straight up fire. The atmosphere is out of this world and the food is out of bounds, cocktails ? Oh my goodness they are to die for. If you are visiting Boise you have to come to this place, it is very romantic as well.

Make sure you get a reservation nod ask for an outside fire table... Can get really loud so not a real intimate place, but the food is awesome!

One of the best restaurants in Boise for a really nice dinner. It's pricey but well worth the splurge especially for a special occasion. Highly recommend!

Staff is great, foods is spectacular and the venue is marvelous. So you'd have to be in a jerk mood determined to stay that way if you have a bad time here. Outdoor seating on a warm evening sets a great mood....but even the most out of the way table or back room has charm and comfort.

Thank Bree B
