We had appetizers including wings, calamari and the red bean and sausage soup. Guinness on tap was fantastic. Service was great and atmosphere was upbeat. Good place for watching NCAA tournament. I have the entrees before and the food is great. Recommended

First, I was alone and sat at the bar where I was quite comfortable and well served. I had their Reuben Sandwich with Kimchee instead of Sauerkraut and must say it was quite good. I'd have it again. I also had a Greyhound (fresh grapefruit and vodka) that was delicious..

This another great restaurant in CDA. Ask for Tallon Section if you decide to go in! This restaurant has both inside and outdoor seating to enjoy dining during those amazing Idaho Seasons. They really do a great job!

Wanted a casual place to meet friends for drinks and food. We ended up getting there at happy hours to be pleasantly surprised on how good the happy hour food was. The plum chicken wings rocked and the hostess brought out two "hotter" dipping sauces to challenge our taste buds. Love the hummus plate as well. Would go back in... More

We stopped here for dinner on the recommendation of my niece's friend who had been here and enjoyed the steak. My niece who is currently in school out here, was looking for that type of meal.

I reviewed this restaurant a few years ago and gave them three stars because of the service. I had not been back there since that night, until last week. It is still a great atmosphere, low lighting, classy. The food is wonderful, and the drinks are even better! Unlike my first visit, the service was top notch this time around.... More

Stopped here for a nice glass of wine after shopping in Riverstone. The wine list is impressive. My server didn't know a lot about wines (for example which of the Chardonnays were oaked). We arrived around 2p and the place was fairly empty, as expected. Yet it was still loud. If you go during busy times, I would expect considerable... More

We really enjoyed our late lunch at Bardenays. The service was excellent as was the atmosphere. The food was very good, so we will go back again soon. Since they have Vodka Distillery there, we did have cocktails and do recommend their Bloody Mary.

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.
