What a great place! The food was delicious with just the right amount of options for everyone. The service was spot on and everyone was very friendly. And then to top it all off the fantastic views! There were views from every seat in the place. Prices were great too! A great hidden gem!

This is a very nice restaurant, which has spectacular views of the Snake River Gorge below. The menu has a very nice selection, from which my wife had the Red Idaho Trout, and I had the Northwestern Seafood pasta. Both were excellent and made the dining experience a real treat. The server was very kind and other than the snooty... More

Met two other couples at 486. All enjoyed their dinners. Rack of lamb, rib eyes, pork tenderloin, and a filet. All were excellent meals. It's best if you make a reservation.

I'd have to say that this place is fantastic for happy hour. You can get a few drinks and a light dinner or appetizers or a salad for around $20 for a couple. It really is a beautiful area too. Service is quick and fast. We went on a Thursday around 4 p.m. I highly recommend their wedge salad -... More

Our innkeeper recommended Elevation 486 and it was wonderful. The view of the Snake River Canyon from the restaurant is truly impressive. The food is just as good. The soup of the day - Tomato Bisque - had lots of chunks of tomatoes and roasted tomato skin bits adding to the complexity to the flavor. The butternut squash ravioli hit... More

This is one of my top 3 to go to in Twin Falls. The food is really good, the staff is welcoming and friendly. The view is the most amazing part and the bar area is beautifully lit with blue lights. There is a fire in the middle of the restaurant and its just a very comfortable atmosphere.

Not much atmosphere but the outside view is terrific. Ignored our reservation request. Also ignored it was my husband's birthday after telling the hostess and server. Their rice pilaf had peas and carrots in it that tasted canned.

Description
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!
