The decor is luxurious and a bit on the naughty side but in a tasteful way. Staff members are impeccably dressed and on point with their customer service. The fish tacos, giant mortar of table made guacamole, and delicious margaritas were sublime and fresh. Escape the mundane and dine on the wild side.

I'm visiting my family in Boise. I work abroad. My brother and I visited barbacoa last Friday night. The spicy shrimp appetizer was amazing followed by the hot rock flamed tenderloin. Presentation was outstanding. I would recommend this place for a 5 star experience.

Great views inside and out or at the little bar upstairs. For drinks: try a side car! It's delicious! Food: EVERYTHING! I haven't found a dish I didn't love! Ask your waiter/waitress if you can't decide, they won't steer you wrong! The steaks are done perfectly and the pasta dishes are heavenly! A little spendy but worth the price!

The food is good and yes it is expensive. Sadly, I have noticed the portion size has shrunk a bit. Not to say that you will go away hungry. I enjoy drinks and appetizers out on their deck during the summer months. The restaurant sits on the edge of Park Center Pond and has a great view of the foothills.

We went here for a late dinner while staying nearby. The service was excellent as was the food. The decor is interesting and fun to look at. It's right on a small lake as well. Because it was so late, we didn't want a huge steak, so we ordered the 16 oz rib eye to share. It was cooked perfectly... More

The food was phenomenal! But the sparkling water is an amazing touch. I would go back just for that!

We loved everything about this restaurant. The place itself is very nice, the decoration is great. Food was delicious and servers and outstanding. We highly recommend this place for a special occasion. It's pricey, but worth every penny.

We love Barbacoa! The service is superb and the atmosphere unique and fun. Since it is a little more expensive we only go on special occasions but look forward to it for weeks. Love the steak on a stone to cook at your individual perfect temperature, as well as the clever and appetizing presentations of all the courses. I am... More

Now let me start off by saying this place is not the type of place that you go every week, it's definitely a once a month or special occasion type of place. But it is amazing. The food is perfect, portions are a good size and there is something I believe for everyone. Sizable drink menu and desserts menu. My... More
