Came for lunch and sat on the patio. Unbelievable view. Food is awesome, service could be better as far as checking back. Will be back. Dinner is out of our price range but lunch is very reasonable.

I recently came here with my boy friend and from the moment we walked through the doors of
Elevation we were greeted with warm smiles from the lovely hostess and didn't have a wait to be seated on the patio. The hostess were very friendly and bubbly. Our server was very nice and knowledgeable with recommending her favorite entrees and appetizers. We decided we wanted to share a bottle of wine and was uncertain of which wine to get, she was very helpful with helping us decide on which wine to get that would pair with our steaks. Fantastic Service, Food was divine, and amazing view. Deffenitly will be coming back

The view is spectacular and worth the visit alone. The food was mixed. We had the ahi appetizer which was delicious, but then both our wedge salads were warm, not the typical chilled salad. Plus the blue cheese was tasteless. As entrees we had the beef medallions, which were cold but had a good flavor and the ribeye steak which had been ordered medium rare, but instead was medium. The huckleberry ice cream desert was fabulous but the cheesecake was marginal. The biggest disappointment was the service; the tables are not set with napkins and silverware---I assume the server is to bring them with your food, but ours did not. We had to wait while our appetizer got cold for another server to find napkins and utensils for us. In addition, they don't serve bread plates, so when the rolls are delivered you have no place to put them. They also serve a berry-flavored butter with the rolls which is very, very sugary sweet---not great with a dinner. We ran out of water and our server said she would refill our glasses--that took almost half an hour. Also if you are looking for a romantic evening on the patio---forget it. The parents dining with their young children allow them to run wild across the patio. It was a Chuck-E-Cheese experience!

Traveling through Twin Falls on our way to Yellowstone and stumbled across this place. A super great location overlooking the Snake River. Had a very nice local chardonnay which went very nicely with the Mediterranean shellfish pasta I had and the calms my wife had. A nice casual restaurant. Service was friendly if somewhat leisurely. All and all very much worth the price if in the area.

While on a business trip, relaxed in this amazing restaurant! It is an architectural beauty on the rim of the Shoshone basin. Service was impeccable, menu robust for all tastes; but the trout was tops!
