Where do I begin? This place never disappoints. The service and atmosphere are amazing and the food equally amazing. They distill and create amazing cocktails and their taps are always sure to please. I never miss an opportunity to stop on and enjoy a meal.

Just as everyone loves getting the house brew, it was enjoyable to have a house moscow mule with my gourmet burger. We chose this place because it was walking distance from our hotel. The food -- especially the fries -- didn't disappoint. The top-shelf moscow mule was reasonably priced and had the perfect amount of spice. I'd definitely come back.

This restaurant has good reviews but that wasn't our experience. We both ordered steak prepared two different ways. My Filet was burnt on the grill - literally charred - terrible. The bruschetta appetizer wasn't bruschetta - it was big slabs of French bread with Parmesan and chopped tomatoes - not the appetizer we wanted with our wine. We won't go... More

We had a great dinner and drinks. The service was a little slow but not awful. We also enjoyed the views. I would like to come back in the summer to sit outside as I think that would make it an even better experience!

Came recommended by several people and we were not disappointed! We ended up going to Bardenay twice for dinner(18th and 19th). We ended up getting Shilo for our waitress both times. First rate service, very knowledgeable, very friendly with a good sense of humour. When we had a hard time narrowing down our choices, Shilo was always spot on as... More

Stopped on the way to Missoula for lunch. The Sweet Potato Fries are outstanding. The view over the lake and fountain add to the ambiance. Service was attentive and good. The food came out promptly and was well prepared and presented. I had the Corned Beef and Kimchee Rueben and a salad. Both were delicious. The portions were just right.... More

I was a little thrown off by the menu's nod to so many different cuisine elements- pad Thai, chorizo, meatloaf, fish and chips... I opted for the half ruben (made with kimchee instead of sauerkraut) and house greens and blue cheese dressing. It was spectacular. The spiciness of the Kimchee worked amazingly well. And, ordering water and leaving a $2... More

Recommended by the staff at our hotel, and I would agree. We shared the pear spinach salad and a Ruben and both were wonderful! The Ruben had kimchi as a topping with a bit of spice. We sat close to the kitchen and all the food going out looked good. Decent beer selection too. Prices were very reasonable.

Mid-week, no wait. Fast initial service and it remained great. The server offered to do a flight of their drinks and was well knowledgeable of them. I had bacon-wrapped beef that was delicious! For dessert, I had a decadent piece of cake / ice cream. The server recommended a couple drinks for me. I was not disappointing. Luckily, I was... More

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.
