Oh my goodness, where do I start? I didn't know what to expect, the restaurant appears to be connected to some art gallery which was interesting. I ordered a tomato soup and the trout. Soup was probably one of the best soups I've had! I need to get the recipe and I wish I had a reason to go back.... More

This restaurant has a great view, even if it is dark outside! I love having interior fireplaces, especially during cold fall and winter days, and there are 2 of them here! Every server we saw greeted us with a smile and concern for our experience, which was greatly appreciated. I find that bad service does not make up for good... More

I came into town on business and needed a place to entertain. Elevation 486 fits the bill. The food is good, service is fantastic and the view and abundance is amazing. When I come back into town I will be back.

We scheduled our Thanksgiving reservation after reviewing the menu online and deciding to take a small road trip to this restaurant known for fabulous views. We weren't dissapointed! Greeted immediately, we were given our choice of two lovely window tables. Our server was attentive and friendly. The restaurant at 2:30 was fairly full, the atmosphere happy. We ordered the baked...

We were referred to this establishment from the hotel we stayed in. We didnt get a table with a view. Any view. Service was slow. Food was not hot and overpriced. Felt like i paid for the view i didn't get. Oh well. We wont go back.

Every city has that restaurant that everyone says is THE ONE to visit. Elevation 486 is this restaurant for this area. Great food, great staff, and great location. No complaints.

My wife and I met a friend here in the evening. Bad for us...it was dark so we could not see the view but our friend said it was very nice. We just had appetizers which were quite good - smoked trout, crab and shrimp dip, potato ski slopes and prosciutto wrapped asparagus. All were quite good and reasonable in... More

Took my wife here for our wedding anniversary and called ahead to request a table by the window to watch the sunset. Unfortunately my timing was off and we missed it by about 20 minutes, but the view of the canyon was still beautiful. Our server came and took our drink order then disappeared for a while. She finally came... More

I visited this hotel twice (a friends birthday celebration + night out with coworkers). Both times the food was great and the service was also good. The views of this place is the selling point. The restaurant is located right on the canyon and offers diners the ability to get close views and lovely pictures. The price of the food... More

This restaurant is a little off the beaten path but worth the find. Great salads, wonderful homemade soups, nice entree selection with a lovely wine list. It's not pretentious but laid back. The bartenders are wonderful.

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!
