stopped by for a quick bite at the Boise airport. I realize the menu is limiting, however, the food was less than stellar. Better off going to Smashburger.

Very cool concept, you can try your favorite gin or rum beverage from liquor made right in the restaurant. We went initially just for the novelty, but the service, food, and drinks were all excellent. The prices were good and the amount of food for each serving was huge, neither of us could finish. The interior is beautiful with huge... More

After reading reviews, we settled here. It was homecoming weekend at Boise Sate so lots on energy. They distill their own spirits, so we tried their gin and ginger rum drinks. Warmed the sou in just the right way. Very good food. Just a great night. In a great surprise, they have a location in the airport after security.

I had an early dinner at Bardenay today, missed the Bronco fan rush. It was amazing! I had a window table, what fun. I had the Jim Beam Old Fashion, the teriyaki salmon satay, and the spinach salad. Heavenly! Great service, too.

the interior is so noisey it is painful. you have to scream to make yourself heard. Food is acceptable but does not overvome the terrible interior environment.

Be it a business lunch, dinner with friends or out of town guests, I have never been disappointed with the food, drinks or service at Bardenay. They are definitely on my "Go To" list, even when taking picky eaters.

I've been to Bardenay many times and it is a go-to spot for lunch when I have a business meeting downtown. The patio dining in the summer is also very fun, lots of people watching to do. The menu is variable enough to address many different appetites. There is a large drink selection. I usually stick with the beers. Lots... 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.
