Description: 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.

This is a fabulous restaurant for any time at all. We eat dinner there all the time and had Easter Brunch which was super fantastic. Good food, good service, good drinks and good value.

“Open Sunday night! a plus in Boise....”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

We wanted Basque dining but nothing was open Sunday evening. However, the Bardenay was in the Basque area and serves excellent draft beer and great burgers and sandwiches. It was reasonably priced, patio dining and delicious. What more can a traveler want? Also, we noticed that most of the diners were locals, always a plus.

“A hopping place!”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

This is a great place - fun atmosphere and lively. Good food and service too! It was busy after a football game, but service was still prompt. Obviously a popular place!

“Excellent restaurant with many options”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

I have eaten here many times, but recently took a group for a business lunch. Later n during their trip they asked if we could go ask. Bardenay has great food with lots of options and a great atmosphere. Sitting outside for lunch is spectacular, weather permitting.
