Re: “The Capri

This is one of the best dives around. However, they do not have Italian food so the menu above is wrong. No choice between Capri, Moon's, or Goldy's. If you want to have great food that costs a lot pick Goldy's. If you want to spend too much choose Moon's--very average breakfast. Capri is for everyone else. Good solid American food with no pretenses. Try the Chicken Fried Steak or any omelet. And their pancakes just soak up the syrup. Yummy!! If you have hash browns, ask to get them crisp or you'll get "hash whites". Otherwise, enjoy it. Almost forgot, I usually get biscuits & gravy. They have nice big biscuits that they heat up by buttering and browning on the grill. Very good. They are crowded, I usually end up sitting at the counter. Friendly but businesslike. They are normally real busy.

Re: “Shige Japanese Cuisine

Highly recommend as one of the best sushi place in Boise. Good service and the sushi rolls are exceptional. The sashimi and nigiri are not as fresh as those from Japan but it's as good as anywhere in the U.S. I will be coming back for more when I visit Boise.

Re: “Pengilly's Saloon

We love Pengillys but I do have to agree that there is at least one bartender that also upped my bill from the amount he said. One of the waitresses is poor, the one with the dark hair that dresses like a stripper, but Kelly is awesome. We like this place due to the old west feel. great music, no cover, and cheap drinks. Also it isn't just for the 20 somethings. Everyone goes to Pengillys, young and old and they have many different types of music. They do need a dance floor and I was disappointed when they expanded the bar and didn't put one in. It would also be better if you could see the band, rest of the bar from the newly expanded side.

Re: “Ling and Louie's Asian Bar and Grill

I took my son here for lunch and as always I asked the server what his recommendations were because I had never been there before. He told me his favorites and I chose the Sizzling Blackened Chicken and Pork with a Red curry butter. My son chose the kids bento box. We were both very happy with our food. After the first bite of my Jasmine rice and blackened chicken I knew this would be one of those restaurants that I craved! It is definitely worth a try! The decor is modern and comfortable and I am happy to find a restaurant that my son and I equally enjoy.

Re: “A Taste of Thai

We enjoyed a first visit this week. The interior and ambiance is surprisingly nice after seeing the exterior lack of panache. Heavy silverware, exquisite matching cups, dishes and bowls that feel like pottery you used to find at Art In The Park, and spotless intricately folded linen napkins set a nice climate. The service is leisurely professional.

Started with whole wonton wrapped shrimp that were excellent with the red pepper flake dipping sauce. Next was a palate freshening cucumber and red onion salad that was superb. It was cool and crisp with a rice vinegar sauce I am trying to duplicate at home.

The only down note was the duck rice bowl that my partner had. She is very particular about duck and compares everything to the crispy basil duck at Sa-wad-dee. It was good, but maybe a little pedestrian. I had sweet and sour pork after reading the description carefully. This is a stir fried dish with no coating or deep frying. The vegetables were crisp and delicious. The pineapple tasted like the fresh ones on a stick you find when traveling. The vinegar was more pronounced than the sugar in the sauce and set off the thinly sliced pork perfectly.

Beer and wine were not available because of a paperwork error. The wine list does have extremely fairly priced wines listed. The wines are marked up much less than most other places that triple the retail price.

A Taste of Thai is a nice treat. We will be returning soon.

Re: “The Harbor Grill and Events Center

We tried the DRINK on Sunday, at out on one of the floating decks; the weather was perfect. The waiter was very attentive and service was good. Happy hour had 1/2 price appetizers and drink specials, we had some wings, which were pretty good. Later I had a club sandwich that I really enjoyed. Overall our first experience was quite good, we'll be back and see if it stays this way.

Re: “Denny's

I have been going to Denny's for years. My family loves it there, and I don't mind it at all. I have always had first rate service and the type of food Denny's is famous for. You want a Kobe beef ribeye? Don't go there. You want fancy wine and musical guests? Don't go there. Want HUGE portions, a handful of salt in all the dishes and high prices? Don't go to Denny's. But, if you want home cooking, and really reasonable prices, and good service, go there.

Re: “Spearmint Rhino

The only Gentlemans club in Boise. I went around 4 pm and there was only one rand down looking dancer. I left came back around 9pm and was very surprised with the girls. They were all very nice girls. Some are very sad and run down looking. but the hot ones make up for the Ugly. If you want an ice cold beer or cheap drinks and a nice hot lady to talk to, this is the club. No nudity either but conversations make up for it.

Re: “Hideaway

Harry's has reopened with new owners/management and a makeover. (Spring 2012)
The happy hour specials shown above are no longer in effect. The food is still quite good, and there are various daily specials at happy hour. At least they still have "Well Wednesday"!
I did once hear the music get loud, and it was rap crap, but it was quickly toned down when regulars expressed displeasure.
It is now called Harry's Rendezvous. The TVs are independent of each other, so you will find what sport you want on at least one of them.

Re: “Casa Mexico-Eagle

I love the food here and the prices are reasonable. Two people could easily share an entree as they do not skimp on portion size. Their salsa is delicious as well.

Re: “Tavern at Bown Crossing


Look at what you wrote: "The group consists of nurses, technicians, engineers, machinist, dental professionals, business professionals, etc. staple members of our community. After talking to the manager he agreed to serve us but the wait staff acted like we weren't good enough for the place and basically let us stay long enough to make us feel really unwelcome"

You make a list of how qualified and educated your group was for their careers and you try to use those qualifications to show how the group was made up of stellar citizens and you wonder why you had a bad experience? Well, the way you wrote your review you sound like you are writing from a pillar looking down on common folk. It also reads like you are the type of person to find things wrong anywhere you go. Maybe read your comments again, out loud, to a few friends that are not from your "...staple members..." of our community and see if they think that your approach in your review came off as horrible.

My dining experiences there have been great. I have only dined on the sushi side and not the steak house area so I cannot comment on the other dishes. The speciallty rolls where all pretty good so far. Most that I have ordered have been on the large size so you should get full. Prices are on the higher side but not too bad. Sadly I have not been out there for awhile as I seem land-locked on the west side of town as of late.

Re: “Salt

Really like this place. The menu is creative and they often have music at the dinner hour on weekends. Servings are not too large, which is fine with me; I enjoy the marinated flank steak on their house made roll, sometimes with soup, sometimes with salad. If you're a coffee dude or dudette you must try one of their mochas with house-made chocolate milk. I happen in here most mornings for coffee and, if a bit peckish, one of their excellent croissants (also made on site). You can walk out of here after two dinners, including a generous wine pour, for what it might cost for one at most places. Try it.

Re: “Texas Roadhouse

Do you like rare steak? I mean really rare, as described in the TR menu as "cool red center"? You can still have it your way at Texas Roadhouse.
I had a previous poor experience with the chain, but my wife had never been and wanted to try it. We went on a busy Saturday, and opted to sit in the bar, rather than wait. The service in the bar was spot on, friendly and attentive.
We had the "baby blossom" onion starter that was just right, not too big, and not too spicy. My wife enjoyed the roasted chicken. The mashed potatoes were bland, but typical chain style. The gravy could have come right out of a can.
My New York strip was as good a restaurant steak as I have had in years. I added the sauteed
mushroom option, which was a very good choice. The mushrooms and the saute juice complemented the rare beef perfectly. We shared my run of the mill Caesar salad. We are fussy about that salad because my wife has perfected a "prefect for us" version that is hard to beat. The steak fries were steaming hot, crispy, and delicious.
Prices are reasonable at Texas Roadhouse and you come away with a feeling of satisfaction that you have been well served.
We will be back soon.

Re: “Baguette Deli

Some of the best french bread in the city, good crunchy fresh veggies, great variety of meats and fillings for the sandwiches. I think they could put a little more meat in their sandwiches. Yes the price is good, sort of, but you aren't comparing apples to apples. Other sandwich places have bigger bread and more stuff on it.

Still, I'm only taking it down one star for that issue. A top notch place. I've been eating there since they opened their first store at the Fred Meyer on Orchard.

Also, that bread is under $1.50 a loaf. Take it home and just use it as fresh bread for dinner. I make a beef po-boy sandwich that is a lot like a french dip that is absolutely fantastic on this bread.
