Dropped by on our way to Boise. This is such a beautiful restaurant! The view is so excellent. We were too late to get a table, but early enough to do Happy Hour in the bar. Sitting at a very comfy table, looking out of the huge window at the wonderful river we enjoyed the Happy Hour tidbits our drinks... More

Very good food and an amazing view. Wonderful in the Summer time since you can have a great meal and then walk along the canyon

We went earlier for drinks and were pleasantly surprised that the happy hours drinks and bar food were great. We enjoyed the view with the drinks and moved to the restaurant for dinner thereafter. The clams were well cooked and had great flavored. The lamb shank was huge and delicious. We ate well and it really wasn't expensive. The service... More

I rarely rate 5/5 even for very good locations 5/5 should have excellent food, focus service and be what they claim to be. Tonight Elevation 486 did that. I don't know if they do it consistently. 486 positions as one of ( or the) fine dining establishments. It seems so. Valena (?) the bar tender/ server was friendly, efficient and... More

Really nice location and quite romantic. Wait staff was great and the food was good. I would recommend this place - the summer views from the deck/patio would be awesome.

Oh my goodness, where do I start? I didn't know what to expect, the restaurant appears to be connected to some art gallery which was interesting. I ordered a tomato soup and the trout. Soup was probably one of the best soups I've had! I need to get the recipe and I wish I had a reason to go back.... More

This restaurant has a great view, even if it is dark outside! I love having interior fireplaces, especially during cold fall and winter days, and there are 2 of them here! Every server we saw greeted us with a smile and concern for our experience, which was greatly appreciated. I find that bad service does not make up for good... More

I came into town on business and needed a place to entertain. Elevation 486 fits the bill. The food is good, service is fantastic and the view and abundance is amazing. When I come back into town I will be back.

We scheduled our Thanksgiving reservation after reviewing the menu online and deciding to take a small road trip to this restaurant known for fabulous views. We weren't dissapointed! Greeted immediately, we were given our choice of two lovely window tables. Our server was attentive and friendly. The restaurant at 2:30 was fairly full, the atmosphere happy. We ordered the baked...

We are blessed to be in this one-in-a-million location, perched on the south rim of The Canyon, in the great state of Idaho, 486 vertical feet above the beautiful Snake River. On a clear day you can see Soldier Mountain to the northwest, the Pioneer Range due north and Pomerelle to the east. What they say is true.. Location is everything!
