Had octopus and pork belly. These two dishes are difficult to get right. They nailed it. Food was delicious, flavorful and cooked to perfection.

First time there for four of us for dinner before a performance. Everyone's food was really good, and the service was excellent. This won't be our last visit, for sure.

Richard's is a great restaurant on the first floor of a boutique hotel in Boise. It's not huge, very comfortable with a great menu. Service was spectacular, appetizers were varied (we had the goat cheese and fig flatbread, excellent) and the menu offered enough entrees...More

We had a great breakfast last Sunday. Decided that since we stayed at Inn at 500 we’d eat here rather than drive somewhere else. What a fantastic decision to do this. After perusing the menu came to the conclusion from their description of the choices...More

Business breakfast, and I was happy with it. They make their bacon crispy, if that means anything to anyone. It does to me. The food was well cooked. Great wait staff, nice location and look.
