Not just your average bar and distillery food. Come with an open mind as most of the menu is not for your average plain Jane eater. The calamari was pretty good, a tad overdone and could have used a little heat. We loved the batter that it was fried in. I tried the phad thai, sadly I ended up throwing... More

Totally unexpected. Holiday inn express staff recommended. Portuguese clams appetizer was enough for two with awesome flavor. My husband had salmon which he called the best he had had and he's a salmon fan. Burger with side salad was wonderful. We plan to go every time we drive through

I have been to Bardenay several times and it has been a roller coaster of service and quality. I asked for the bacon to be very well cooked, or crispy. I was given limp, greasy bacon, and when i finally got the waiters attention, it sent back and 15 minutes later came back the same. I never got the water... More

Went here for dinner with family. I had the cod and chips. The fish was over fried and sweet potato fries were average. My wife had a salad and it was ok but nothing special. Everyone enjoyed their meal but there was nothing special. Service was pretty good. Best part about the place was the view but lots of places... More

Todd, Thanks for all of your feedback. It sounds like we missed the mark on your meal, cod and chips are usually one of our greatest items. We would love to have you back in to show you that your experience was out of the norm. More

This is a distillery as well as a restaurant. All the drinks I had were their own alcohol and they were great. I didn't have a full meal just appetizers but they were good.

Had 2 appetizers for dinner, cheese plate and pork "wings" w/ hot sauce. More than enough for two. Good location and service. A great addition to the CSA dining options. PS, great and well priced wine list😊.

this beautiful restaurant sits right on a beautiful small lake, with fountains and ducks and lovely surroundings and a wonderful patio for dining. The inside is cozy, and inviting. Our server, Cody, was so helpful in choosing our food. The service is great, the food is great, wonderful place to go when you are in Coeur d'Alene

My husband and I had a good meal at Bardenay's. They had a number of craft beers on tap, and quite a few nice looking cocktails based on their own distillery. We had the beer, so can't comment on the cocktails. I had the trout fillet, nicely cooked and moist. My partner had the brined pork chop - again finished... More

Went here based on trip advisor reviews and we could walk to it from our hotel. The drinks I had were good and my salmon was great, my boyfriend thought his satay and Thai Chicken salad were average, but it had Great Lake views.

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.
