3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW

Right at the entrance to the B concourse. Easy in and out. Our waitress was patient as we spent longer than usual figuring out our order as we talked about other things more prominent on our minds at the time. Food was good and hot. I had a bowl of the red bean and chorizo stew and it was quite... More

Really great service. The place was busy but service was quick and both the server and greeter were very friendly. The food was good and the mixed drinks are worth looking at.

Our waiter was attentive, but came across somewhat annoying. We had asked about my mom's drink and he let us know it takes a bit to get it drawn, which was fine. I ordered the kobe fish tacos big mistake. They were the most tasteless tacos I have ever eaten. I ordered a side salad to go with. The salad... More

Sue we never want you to leave the restaurant feeling this way, please ask for a manger next time so we can get involved. Your server cares enough to have signed up on his own to get all online reviews sent to his phone & he immediately recognized your review was about him. He wanted to personally apologize for your...

We stayed two nights in Boise, and we enjoyed the atmosphere, service, and food so much we had to repeat the experience the second night. We were not disappointed. Thankfully we arrived before 5:30 both evenings because it is very apparent that this location is very popular with many other diners . . . As the location filled up very... More

It can get noise inside, but in the off hours is is nice. Really good food. I love their salmon. It is the best in the valley. This is the restaurant in Eagle off of Eagle Rd. I have never been to the one downtown in Boise.

Always enjoyable to dine at Bardenay. Their food is excellent and priced fairly. They have a great selection of beers, including local and other regional craft beeers. Their drinks are also exciting with classics and some unusually pairings. Good spot for a drink and food in Boise.

Four words-extra dirty vodka martini. Bardenay's own vodka makes the best martinis, try with either the Basque or bleu cheese stuffed olives! Oh, and you can't go wrong with anything off the food menu, either. My favorites are the satays w/ a side salad!

This was the first place we went to after we landed in Boise. We were in Boise to check it out because we are thinking about relocation, so the downtown Bardenay location was literally our first impression of the city. Loved the food...super friendly staff...great outdoor patio seating. We'll be back!

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.
