Dining room loud and difficult to have a private conversation. Lots of hard surfaces. Bread was stale. Most dishes contain sauces and gravies. Food was average. Service was good.

Is this the best restaurant in Boise? No. But is it a very good restaurant; absolutely. Sunday brunch lunch and dinner is a full menu of non-ethnic standards. Waffles and omelettes for breakfast/brunch, salads and sandwiches for lunch and traditional entrees for dinner. Although I only felt like a waffle which was good; but while observing the other meals being... More

Great ambiance and decor. Beautiful river views. Unfortunately dinner was not so great. 3 of the 4 meals were not hot and the service so-so. We were not offered the specials of the evening.

We arrived early for a five PM dinner. We were seated quickly by one of their wonderful hosts. Our table was by their fireplace. That was appreciated on a cold day. We noticed that the bar was full as happy hour was in full swing. Cottonwood has an excellent appetizer and spirits are served. Cottonwood also has a fabulous wine... More

We have always loved Cottonwood Grille, however the Thai Chicken Salad was a miss. The dressing was sickening sweet and the salad a pile of chicken, veggies and a smattering of peanuts. Either learn how to make it or take it off your menu.

We were very happy with everything there. The food, the service, and the ambiance were all first class. The wait staff was 'there' but never pushy, and the food was all excellent. I was also pleasantly surprised at the cost, less than I expected for the quality. Not cheap, but more than fair.

Visited this restaraunt with my sister, her husband, and my husband for my birthday. The restaraunt was beautiful, ambiance was relaxing, and the staff was very friendly. The food, left something to be desired. I ordered the prime rib dinner, medium with the chorizo soup. The soup tasted like they opened a can of baked beans. The waitress offered to... More

Attended functions in the banquet room. I experienced the food wasn't anything special, high priced, and bossy waitress.

I thought the service and food at Cottonwood Grill was splendid. What surprised me when I went in (especially after hearing about it) was the atmosphere. It seems to open to me - almost like a clubhouse - for the level of restaurant that it is. I ate here with a group of friends last summer when I was in... More
