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.

“Great patio”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

Bardenay isn't our normal choice for dinner but we wanted to take a out of town friend to something different. The best thing about going here is the large beautiful patio. Inside is very loud and open like a cafeteria. I love the seared ahi tuna app ($13) and my husband likes the Rueben with Kimchi ($10). Our friend had the fish and chips and said it was good ($11). I was not a fan of the Pulled Pork sandwich. It had a strange dressing, way too much bun, and needs more meat. The cole slaw that came with the meal was super good ($11). Next time we will probably stick with apps and drinks on the patio.

“Late night dinner with friends”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

First server sucked so we fired him and got Chelsea, a delight!
Food and drinks were great. Would have been perfect if the first server didn't act like we were ruining his night by coming in (only 5 tables had peeps at them). chelsea saved it!

“Excellent food”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

I had the sushi and a steak. Quite good. The only rub is that no reservations so when it gets busy I am sure you probably have to wait. Service was great. Noisy place which I had no issue with. Thanks,
