We were here on a very rainy Sunday but lots of people showed up. I had my usual first meal at a new place, steak and caesar salad. My wife has salmon. Both meals were decent but not exceptional. A cut above a chain restaurant though. The atmosphere, service, ambiance and decor were all fine, which earned a "Very Good"... More

If you are looking for a quintessential southern Idaho restaurant, this is it! The views are spectacular and the wine list rather long for a smaller restaurant! Our favorite dish is the steak and coconut rice and the raspberry dressing is worth a try! If you love bread, you will love the bread and huckleberry butter!

We stopped and had lunch and enjoyed the view and the food. Get a seat on the patio if the weather is agreeable. Otherwise a seat by the window is nice too. We had burgers and salads and the tomato bisque (omg so good!). All were excellent.

Just enjoyed a birthday lunch sitting out on the patio, overlooking the gorgeous Snake River Canyon. The special Lasagna was hearty & flavorful & we shared the cookie dough cheesecake which was great as well. This is hands down one of the best places in Twin Falls.

As usual, Mother Nature wins the prize for designing with beauty and peacefulness! A wonderful place to visit near a modern delightful town.

Sit outside even if it's cooler, just bring a jacket. Breathtaking views and a great menu! I ordered the filet mignong medium rare with wild rice pilaf and it came out perfectly cooked! The rice had some sort of a fake beef broth flavor but it was still good, the steak made the meal!

Elevation 486 would have been a good find in any town but Twin Falls? The meal started with a house Malbec at the bar that was quite good and continued well through the evening. The view on the deck was alone worth the trip.

Based on Trip Advisor rating we chose Elevation 486 for supper and were not disappointed!! The smoked trout as a starter is excellent!! The prime rib was cooked perfectly and the seafood linguine was excellent as well! For dessert we thoroughly enjoyed the New York cheesecake!! Then the view, unbelievable!!! Finally, the service was also perfectly timed, pleasant and helpful!... More

We are blessed to be in this one-in-a-million location, perched on the south rim of The Canyon, in the great state of Idaho, 486 vertical feet above the beautiful Snake River. On a clear day you can see Soldier Mountain to the northwest, the Pioneer Range due north and Pomerelle to the east. What they say is true.. Location is everything!
