I was visiting Boise over the Thanksgiving holiday and my daughter insisted we try this restaurant. It is very unique with a great atmosphere. I had the ribeye cooked rare but on the hot rock. I really enjoyed it. My wife had the salmon and said it was great. This is a very good high scale restaurant. I will definitely... More

This Thanksgiving dining experience was bar-none the alert EVER!!! Anticipating a really fantastic dinner after reading the menu for the Thanksgiving Buffet ended with complete and epic disappointment. They OVERBOOKED by an enormous number so you would wait 20 to 30 minutes past your reservation time that we booked weeks ago! They continued to take "walk ins" even though we... More

I have not visited Barbacoa for dinner for almost two years due to a bad experience. Family and friends wanted to stop by on Thursday night so I went along. Service was very good, I had a great salad and everyone else at table ordered the "hot rock" which I sampled and it was very good.

If you are looking for a little more upscale place to eat in Boise, Barbacoa is it! Service is the best and the food will bring you back again!

Best New York steak I've ever eaten and the chips and huge bowl of guacamole made right at our table along with the water view made it a special day.

Hosted a happy hour for work, staff was amazing and so were the drinks/appetizers. The locals recommended and they were right, we wanted to stay for dinner but the wait was over an hour on a Wednesday night. Next time we will stay, nothing compares and we made a mistake by leaving. The table side guacamole was fabulous, calamari, wings,... More
