Prime steaks, fresh seafood and an award winning wine list combine with friendly service and a warm, inviting atmosphere making Chandlers Steakhouse your destination of choice for a remarkable dining experience. Home of the famous "10 minute martini" enjoy live jazz 7 days a week.
Everything about our meal was perfect. We were greeted warmly, seated promptly at the time of our reservation, and there was no flaw whatsoever in the service. The food was perfectly prepared and the setting, with live piano music, was great.

Amazing local food at low price. Genuine argentinean and american-style empandas and subs.
Show up at lunch time and you'll wait in line, and with good reason. The Argentinian empanadas on the menu (and there are a variety of types, including dessert empanadas, plus sub sandwiches) are all terrific. And at $2.50 each for most of them, highly affordable. Yes, if you have to wait, it's worth it. Or be smart and show up before or after the lunch rush and enjoy. Only 8 or so tables, but the food is great for take-out.

Stopped in about 3 in the afternoon for a snack and the three of us ordered a potpourri of menu items that were all good.....I had the delicious clam chowder served with a yummy corn muffin, my son had an eggwhite omelet, potatoes and coffee, and his girlfriend had a homemade pecan nut bar that she loved. This is a very casual, funky place that serves great food at good prices. I wish I had been really hungry as lots of things on their menu sounded so appetizing. We tried to get in one morning but it was jammed; their breakfast items looked amazing.

When we first stumbled on Goldy's, we walked right in. We realize, in hindsight, that this was probably the only time this has happened, ever. Amazing menu. Amazing food. Amazing staff.
If you have to wait, make sure you pack your cell phone because you can wander around the Basque area or go sit in their coffee shop "waiting room" on the corner and they will buzz you when it's your turn.
I love the pepps added to an egg order. the spouse loves the oatmeal or the black beans and salsa. everything we've ever had is great.

Steak and Seafood with a Latin Flair
Very unique selections, with a sort of Spanish flare. A bit pricy but worth the money. Selection of steaks, seafood and other items. Servers very helpful with wine selections And a real different drink menu.

A very nice breakfast place indeed. We went as a party of three on New Year day and it was a moderate crowd. We tried our hands at multiple stuff. There was an order of plain simple French Toast served with a generous helping of cream. The omelette was excellent and it looked like it was made from half a dozen eggs! And the hash browns were hot and crispy which rendered it extremely tasty.
The highlight for me was Swedish Pancake served with lingonberries. The pancakes were thinner than what I've had at a lot of places but it was exceptionally tasty.
Very generous portions, and simmering taste make this a must visit breakfast place for me!

I want to rate this place better but the sides just kill it for me. I've tried most of them - coleslaw - bland, beans - blah, pretty sure the fries are wedges - I like thin cut, and even the sweet potato fries were served with some awful kind of marshmallow sauce??
Come on guys - who in the world is coming up with these sides?? They from a different planet? Get some better side dishes and I'll be a fan.

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.
Love the ambiance and atmosphere of going to downtown Boise Bardenay! I find the atmosphere classy and not like a college hang out after finals. The food is medium upscale for a bar but not like the bar food usual menu. Lots of wine choices...MoreThank you John!

We wandered in here on a Saturday night around 6:15. Lucky for us, a table became available only a couple minutes after walking through the door - the place was packed.
Warm, rustic feel, welcoming interior with a great bar, close side-by-side seating and tables - lots of wood.
Great selection of beers, but being an Alehouse, we opted for a couple Jameson's on the rocks. Go figure, huh?!
To start, we had the fried Ballard Curds prepared Buffalo Style. Healthy . . . ah, no. Delicious? How about CURDELICIOUS!
I had the Spicy Lamb Burger: house grind lamb leg and shoulder, feta, crispy onion, jalapeno, green leaf, and a pickle. It was really good; just a bit too spicy for my taste. Be careful with this one!
My wife ordered the Huntsman Burger: British huntsman of gloucester cheddar and stilton bleu, a pickle, green leaf, onion, applewood smoked bacon, and saloon sauce - without a bun. (Oh, that Amy!) It was delicious. Along with the side of fries that we shared.
This was a fine dinner - a 5-star dining experience. We suggest getting here on the early-side of dinner. When we left around 7:30 - with some of those burgers boxed for breakfast - every table and seat was filled, and there were a good number of people waiting. There will be a "next time" for us - probably a beer or two, too!

Welcome to Luciano's, where all of our recipes are made from scratch with only the freshest ingredients. Enjoy authentic Italian food, friendly personal service, and a traditional family feel in the city of trees!
We went here on a week night guided by TripAdivisor reviews and rating. The place may not be immediately in a spot in town where you expect to find great food. But is does. I had the veal parmazan and my colleague ate a good spaghetti bolognese. Served with excellent bread and provided with a good choice of beers and wines. I would go back next time when i'm in town.
