4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stopped for lunch before touring the Basque Museum. A busy bustling place at lunchtime but we were served quickly and efficiently-with a smile! Shared the house salad with house dressing and the Portabella Sandwich...both excellent with a draft beer. Serving size was generous on all counts and just right for us seniors to share. We'd return when in the area.

This was a hopping place! Some larger groups from a nearby hotel were there, and others were enjoying watching football or soccer games on the many TV's. We enjoyed different drinks (for us - we usually drink wine) that our server suggested from their cocktail menu and were glad we did. Their meat loaf sandwich was a combination of beef... More

Overall, this is a decent place. We ate on the patio and that was quite pretty and very enjoyable. We went for brunch on a Saturday morning which seemed to be a good time because it wasn't overly busy. Our server was friendly and attentive. I would have rated it higher but I felt the food was pretty average. Maybe... More

menu has lots of variety, food is good, and prices are very reasonable. Cocktails are fun and tasty. We always stop here while visiting Boise. Even when the place is jammed to the gills, service is quick and friendly.

The food is consistently good, as are the cocktails. It's great to eat outdoors on the river when the weather favors it. My favorite place to lunch in Eagle. Be aware that it's very noisy, however

We had a wonderful meal here at Bardency's. The outdoor seating was packed so we went inside to an almost vacant space. But we received great service, the meals were great and we loved the brew. The staff was great as well.

I had the pork chop dinner, wow it was good. My wife had a tuna steak sandwich which she she said was fantastic. Everyone in our group of 5 enjoyed their meal. We had an appetizer, a few local beers and 5 dinners for right around $100. Very reasonable prices for the quality of food and the downtown location. We... More

I really like starting a day in Boise at this place. They have really good drinks and liquor with an extensive drink menu of several different whiskeys, rums, etc. The food menu is huge which is usually a bad sign, but I have enjoyed everything I ate there. They have a lot of small plates/appetizer style food that you can... More

Established in 1999. With three locations in Boise, Eagle and Coeur d'Alene that capture the spirit of Idaho and the Northwest, Bardenay Restaurant and Distillery is a cornerstone of Idaho's restaurant and bar industry. The original establishment is located in a once empty warehouse on the Historic Basque Block in downtown Boise, Idaho. On April 25th, 2000, history was made when we served the first cocktail to included spirits distilled in a restaurant in the US. As the nation's first restaurant distillery, Bardenay has set an industry precedent as the first full service restaurant and bar with the ability to create handcrafted liquor on-site. Our distillers are happy to give tours as time allows. Please ask your server if you are interested in a closer look at our operations. p.s. We are only allowed to sell our fine spirits by the drink. If you would like to purchase a bottle, you may do so at many of our state liquor stores.
