We did not have a reservation on a Saturday night but only had to wait about 30 minutes. The front person was friendly and kind, We went to the bar and ordered a drink while we waited. Ian suggested the Summer Crush for my daughter,...which was very tasty. I had the 486 Signature Lemon Drop. I was a little disappointed. The glass was not close to full in my opinion and couldn't taste the liquor in it. I had the Idaho Ruby Red Trout---Oh so delicious!!!!!!! My daughter had the King Salmon---so fresh tasting. We had the house salad with the huckleberry vinaigrette. I upgraded to have asparagus which was a little over cooked for me. Other than the asparagus the food was outstanding!!!!!!!!! Our waitress, Blanco, was a delight. Friendly and kind. I would definitely recommend Elevation 486.....make a reservation to make sure you can enjoy a nice evening by the canyon.More

Very nice restaurant overlooking the Snake River. What a view. All personnel on staff were top notch. Very friendly front person and an excellent server. Great personality and excellent service. The place can be very romantic and cozy depending on the time of day and...the table. They also have a great patio. We were there with friends and family for lunch. I had a fantastic cheeseburger, cooked to perfection. My son had a Philly cheese steak that he said was one of the best he had every had. My wife tried the ahi tuna salad and liked it, but said she had had better. Our friend had a portabello mushroom burger that she said was excellent. The server would have you a drink refill before you could finish the one you had. Fantastic experience.More

Want to give a shout out to the service last nite at Elevation 486. Gorgeous view to enjoy while. My meal and my BIL’s meals were excellent. My husband, birthday boy, ordered a medium rare prime rib. It came as was over cooked. He sent...it back and wanted something else so they made him a medium rare steak which was cooked perfectly. They discounted that meal and gave everyone a complimentary dessert. They went out of their way to make thing right. Thank you.More

Fantastic!!! The food was wonderful, I had steamer clams, my husband had Tomato bisque soup, and we both had salad; everything was delicious. The service was excellent Could not have asked for better. We were sitting outside but the wind really picked up, we asked...if there was availability inside, they did and we were seated immediately. Every time we go to Twin falls Idaho, we have to go there, you can’t beat the view, phenomenal!!!!More

My husband and I visited Elevation for a nice anniversary dinner. Try to get a table outside to enjoy the stunning views. They have a fabulous wine list and great cocktails. We enjoyed a filet and mussels, both were delicious.

Wow! Ken was outstanding as our service. Knowledgeable, friendly and thinking of the small things. One of the best servers we have been assisted by on our many trips. Ribeye was one of the best pieces of meat that I have ever had. Tender, flavorful,...and cooked to perfection. Baked potato was great and the salad was made up of numerous items not just lettuce. Jan had the Asian Shrimp Noodle bowl with an excellent sauce. A little hot but with excellent flavor and taste. The rolls with the huckleberry butter is out of this world. Reasonably priced at 76.00 for drinks, dinner and tip. Our place in Twin Falls.More
