Overall food is pretty good. Comfortable atmosphere.
ive been in several times the last couple weekend. i had better than great service from a girl named Gina. she was always extra good to us. i was told this week end she is no longer w the company. i do t know what happened but she gave the best service we EVER HAD. If you knew what was good for your business get her back. every one makes mistakes and she definatly deserves a second chance. we spend alot of money there. She is worth it!
Father's Day brunch was $25 and was worth less than half that. The gravy was pure Sysco, the scrambled eggs were a solid dry mass, the bacon thin-cut and cheap tasting, the chicken fried steak tough. The fresh seafood and the lox were both quite good, as were the eggs Benedict and the flat-bread pizza. I didn’t try the hand-cut meat. They also weren’t serving mimosas as part of the brunch price, however, nor the champagne (which their web site claims is part of the brunch but was apparently removed special for Father’s Day). The wait staff was reasonably helpful and prompt, but the place was less than half full at 12:30 pm, so this wasn't surprising. By the time we were done almost all of the deserts were gone (there were maybe 10 items left, most the same, and all of the hot desert pans were completely empty, it looked pretty sad). All-in-all for the price I was severely disappointed.
Lots of great beers on tap, not just all the usual stuff! Staff is really fun and cool! Happy hour is a little weak and it is smokey for sure!
I'm pretty sure the last 12 reviews are written by the same person! It's strange that they all were written in a span of 2 weeks, are all 5 stars, all reviewers only have 1 review, and they have a distinctly foreign flavor to them! I wonder who could have wrote them all?! Though it might be justified after being given a 1 star review by Gigimarie, whos only other review is a 5 star review for Mai Thais next door neighbor Pho written on the same day! The truth about this place is it's overpriced, decent tasting, and somewhat hip(like everything downtown.)
Pretty sure they have liquor. I'm kind of sold on the fact that they just might be having someone under 21 write these reviews.
I had a TERRIBLE time ordering a two topping pizza over the phone. The new girl didn't know what she was doing AND there was no one around to help her. When I finally got a different person on the phone, she was rude to me. So I cancelled the order and called trusty Chicago Connection. Well, Garbonzos didn't cancel order and they both arrived at the same time! Oh, did I have a hay-day with that! Garbonzos ended up leaving pizza, free of charge and asking "please give them another chance"- I had both pizzas in front me for the ultimate taste test challenge...Garbonzos won. I will give them another try:)
Good beer selection and nice environment, service is very good. The food isn't exceptional, but it isn't bad. If this were located in any other area it would be somewhere I'd consider going to as a place to sit around with friends to sit around and watch football while having a few drinks on a regular basis, as it is there are so many other places very close that have exquisite seasonal menus and extensive drink offerings so it's hard to justify picking the Falcon unfortunately.
The location and rooftop venue's simply awesome paired with Boise warm, late nights, and the food can be quite good, though as Aaron mentions some things I've tried verge on microwaved. But the Duke's a solid burger and I hear good things about the rum-soaked turkey sandwich. If you like spicy, try the voodoo fries or the jalapeno margarita!
I've stopped in a couple times - the food wasn't terrible, but the service is unreliable - during one visit, the server didn't write down our order, and had to come back to the table three times to verify what we had ordered before entering it into the computer (there were two of us, and we ordered straight off the menu, no substitutions/changes).
I agree with girya411 - the pho at Baguette Deli would blow this place out of the water.
Finally had a chance to try Berryhill and Co for an early Valentines dinner with my wife. Made our reservation through Open Table for 8:15pm on February 12. Once seated, our server brought out the menus and wine list. He later brought out the nightly Specials list just before were to order dinner. We ordered the Salmon Cakes as an appetizer. They arrived before our wine (Cinder Syrah, delicious) and before appetizer plates and serviceware. The Wine Steward seemed surprised the salmon cakes showed up so early. Dinner (Grilled Kobe Chimmichurri and Kurobota Ravioli) was good, but not particularly note worthy. I was very excited to try this restaurant, but was a bit concerned when I started to read some of the online reviews. Might try again.
Love Bittercreek. Love the beer, Lettuce Wraps, Calamari, Ale Clubhouse Sandwich. I agree that continuity is not a strong suit from the kitchen, but it is generally well prepared. As footsteps79 said, "Don't take up the space" if you do not appreciate Bittercreek!! Props for going local!
The decor is perhaps a little relentlessly hip when you consider most good Vietnamese restaurants are much more bare bones, and this got me apprehensive when I walked in. They get 3 stars simply for being a Vietnamese restaurant, but their pho is kind of greasy. Maybe this is a style that I'm not used to, I hear it depends on where in Vietnam the cook comes from. Cha gio are fine. All those things being the case, I doubt PN could win a head-to-head challenge vs. Baguette Deli...
I'm giving this place three stars, because they served me a very tasty steak. I was actually surprised. Everything else served to our party was generic, bland looking pub food. Our server had trouble identifying which menu items were worth ordering. Slightly better than Buster's or Buffalo Wild Wings.
They attempt to make fancy gastro-pub food here but don't do a good job of it. They'd be better off making high quality simple food instead.
This place has premium ingredients on top of a mediocre platform. If the place is called "Flatbread," I would expect more than just average crust. The iceburg lettuce as the base of salads instead of a good mixture of salad greens was disappointing as well. The 3 stars go entirely to the atmosphere and service and that fact that they take the BW card. I will not be returning however. If I want a salad made of iceburg lettuce, I will go to McDonalds. I expect more from a non-fast food joint.
TK's is a nice little bar if you people, but not so bad if you don't either. Everyone seems to love the place and the band (that I believe is the owner's band). The music is good and you can find some good company and games.
Great place to be, have gone there for drinks multiple times - including St. Patricks.. which is the ONLY time I've heard music I've liked.. they do NOT play Irish music at this place and it's the stupidest thing I've ever heard. Irish pubs shouldn't play frickin American rap music!!! Hey Mr/Miss DJ... put on some Flogging Molly, Real McKenzies, real Celtic music that ROCKS and still won't put you to sleep!~ Much better than the crap people grind to at every other club downtown. Otherwise - GREAT drinks, great prices, great environment!! Change up the music and it'll be my favorite bar!
I don't get why this place is so friggin' popular. The only reason I end up here is my friends like to ogle the waitresses and so I end up having to tag-a-long. The beers are expensive, there's no happy hour, the patrons have that yuppieish vibe, the food varies from good to unacceptable. The wait staff are good, they hustle and are mostly friendly but not enough to save the place.
For example, we ordered chips and salsa as one of our appetizers. The salsa was bad...really bad, it tasted like lawn clippings mixed with Pace Picante. We told the waitress about it and her response was, "I don't eat the chips and salsa". Okay!? Later she came back and told us she tried the salsa and admitted it did have a weird taste but that didn't stop her from charging us $8 for it. There have been a couple other service problems along the same lines as above but you get the point.
There are so many other good bars downtown, I don't understand why, at the same time, this place is packed and the others are near empty.
Good steaks, decent brews, but service could be better. Why are you bitching about a salad bar at a steak house. Take a few hits from the clue bat and move along.
