We recently had our son's wedding reception at Forty-One South.We received so many comments about the excellent quality of the food. From the appetizers to the main course; everything was absolutely wonderful. Cassandra and her staff were efficient , friendly, and professional. Many of our guests said that this was the best wedding meal they ever had.Thank You, Forty One... More

The food is adequate, but does not justify the outrageous prices... I guess the prices wouldn't be bad if the food was exceptional but it's not... I guess if you don't mind getting gouged on prices it's a nice place to go the summer because the outside dining on the lake and it's also accessible by boat

We drove 45 miles north to Sandpoint to celebrate our 29th. Service is good but sometimes servers are hovering to take away the plate the second you put down the fork. Prices seemed high but this is a fairly rural area of Idaho. Ambiance is excellent and so is the view if there when it is still light out. Wine... More

I summer in Sandpoint and chose Forty One South for dinner the night before we left for the winter. There were four of us and everyone had a great dinner; well prepared and well served. I had the duck and it was great; crisp-crisp skin. Probably the best restaurant in Sandpoint.

Paella was not what I was expecting. One of the mussels had not even opened. Didn't find any chicken and the saffron rice was heavily spiced with what tasted like paprika! Was sadly disappointed unfortunately as was looking forward to tasting the seafood. My husband had chicken cordon blue that was a 9.5 rating. He thoroughly enjoyed it. Location is... More

Young wait staff, great young lady seated us, said it was her first week. Hope manager is smart enough to keep her, when she didn't see drinks within a few minutes she came back over to make sure some had taken our order (they had). One of us had the mussels, good , not great. One had lamb sliders also,... More

For an overnight vacation stay at The Lodge at Sandpoint we decided to dine right next door at 41 South. What a great decision! We did not have reservations, but we were greeted warmly and promptly seated on one of the outdoor terraces with a spectacular view of the lake. The menu is diverse and there are mid price items...

We ate here with a large group a few nights ago. The service was on point, food was incredible and the value very reasonable. The highlights were the lamb and filet. I'd eat here again in a heartbeat! Great views overlooking the lake. One of the best spots for a nice dinner in Sandpoint.

The location is very nice and offered a great view of the lake. Staff was great about proactively moving umbrellas to keep the patio shaded in the evening sun. Our server was really good, nice and funny. The food was a little hit-and-miss. My wife had the salmon and said it was great. My burger was ordered medium-rare yet was... More

Came here for dinner around 7 pm. Ordered the Duck Confirm and it was by far the best duck I've ever eaten...absolutely to die for delicious. Service was superb and the outdoor setting for dinner with an 8 pm sunset in late July was unforgettable. Kudos to this place for getting it right.
