We went early in the day for their special 5 course dinner. We had a vegan in our party and they easily created an item for each course to accommodate. Our meal was very nice, no one ordered traditional turkey dinner, the alternatives were all too yummy and lured us. The staff was very friendly. Nice way to spend the... More

We stopped in on a recent Sunday afternoon for a quiet lunch about 1:00 pm. The food was surprisingly interesting, tasty and wonderfully presented. I started with a beautiful salad and every single ingredient was fresh. For my entree, I ordered the Idaho Smoked Trout Poutine. Being a Canadian, I hesitated to order this uniquely Idaho rendition of a favourite,... More

We were given a comfortable booth in this smart restaurant. Our starters were a hearty clam chowder and an excellent wedge salad which were followed by very tasty and tender filet mignon.

Downtown Boise has a burgeoning and vibrant dining scene. Within a few blocks of the State Capital, there are literally dozens of restaurants that offer an eclectic mix of choices for all tastes and budgets. They’re all close to each other, which fosters a friendly, walking culture of eating and drinking that few other cities enjoy. Because I’ve been passing... More

My business partner and I were the only people in the restaurant (it was early); so we had the full attention of our waiter. He was knowledgeable of the wine list and pairings on the menu. Do go!

I had only one problem and that was that I got full long before I finished my food! I had two appetizers and a salad as my meal. The appetizers were a crab dish and a smoked trout dish. The salad was butter lettuce with blue cheese and bacon. It was all outstanding! Service was also fantastic. I dropped a... More

Time for lunch, so I stopped into The Grove Hotel and hit up Emilio's. It wasn't too busy, so I was seated immediately. The menu has some regular choices prepared in unusual ways. I opted for the cheese-steak sandwich with a side of fries. What I didn't know is that their version of a cheese-steak sandwich is not close to... More
