Hi Doc, We take great care in crafting our martinis. We freeze our liquor for minimal dilution, keep our stemware frozen and even hand stuff our bleu cheese olives. We are please you enjoy them! Best, Stacey Gray More

The staff was very friendly, patient and attentive. And it's obvious the Bardenay Restaurant & Distillery is a "go-to place" in Eagle because it was packed (and loud). The menu had a variety of items: appetizers, satays, sandwiches, salads, pad thai, seafood, pasta, steak, etc. So many choices but for me it was easy; I didn't want to "eat with... More

Great food and service. But, a little loud if you are wanting an intimate moment. Great place for the younger generations.

My wife and I recently spent our anniversary night next door to the Bardenay in Eagle. It was a given to have lunch right there next to the hotel. It was so amazingly good, we went back for dinner! The staff was very accommodating and professional. Excellent customer service. Every table around us seemed to be enjoying their night, the... More

We ate there twice during our recent stay and had a variety of the menu items without a bad meal. The tuna salad was super. Great beer selection. Nice ambiance. A little loud. Great bar scene. Reservations recommended on weekend nights. Would go back there in a heartbeat.

I always order the trout since other places that have it are disappointing when compared to the outstanding recipe and perfect cooks at Bardenay. Anytime we want to show friends & family from out of town a real Idaho dish, we know Bardenay will sweep them with the Trout (plus other dishes) and their specials.

My friend and I were out of town; decided to lunch at Bardenay. Though the restaurant was busy, we didn't wait long to order. She had fish tacos, said they tasted quite good. I had fish and chips. We've been here a few times; food, ambiance and meals are consistently good. This time, though fish was tasty and moist, Panko... More

Bardenay Eagle. Like Boise. Like Coeur d'alene is truly reliable and solid. Service is almost always fast and kind and attentive. Great drinks. Martini is great value. 10 solid things on the menu I have had many, many times. Pick. You won't go wrong. Great patio.

Hi Jane, High ceiling and glass doors make it certainly loud. I'm glad that you enjoyed the food and the cocktails. I am concerned about the adequate service. I would like to send you a private message to see if there's a matter that we need to address. Best, Stacey Gray 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.
