We really enjoyed our late lunch at Bardenays. The service was excellent as was the atmosphere. The food was very good, so we will go back again soon. Since they have Vodka Distillery there, we did have cocktails and do recommend their Bloody Mary.

My wife and I ate here a couple days ago. We had a nice time and enjoyed the food and drinks. We especially liked our waitress. Her name was Courtney. She definitely made our experience a great one.

My husband and I think it's one of our most favorite restaurants in CDA! It was snowing outside and when we entered, were greeted by a warm fire and lively yet intimate atmosphere. We were able to choose our own dining table which is a huge plus. We each had a different satay which we shared - my beef one... More

Good food! Enjoyed dinner and drink. Recommend to others. You have to seat yourself but that's in line with the warm atmosphere of this restaurant.

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

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.
