A word from 315 Martinis and Tapas
The 315 restaurant at the Historic Greenbriar Inn is a comfortable yet elegant setting for virtually every occasion. You can cozy up to one of two fireplaces on the main floor, have one of our famously hand-crafted martinis in our full bar, or enjoy tapas and dinner inside the restaurant or outside on our deck or patio within a garden setting, weather permitting! Our menu features a large selection of Tapas, drawing from cuisines around the world, as well as selected dinner items. The menu lends itself to groups who enjoy sharing different dishes together, as well as the more traditional “date night” fare.

    As always, 315 is a great setting to enjoy a relaxing, romantic dinner. My wife and I both enjoy a restaurant without bright lights and crowds of people all trying to talk over each other; 315 is just that kind of place. You can sit, relax, and enjoy some good conversation and great food with a feeling of privacy in a public place.

    We had a group of four and attended specifically because Bill Bozly was playing. The martinis were all excellent. We shared several tapas and salads. All the food was very enjoyable. I especially loved the tofu lettuce wraps.

    The food here is solidly good though the curried shrimp were exceptional. We dined on a Friday with live music in the main restaurant. A rather small space for rather loud music, although the singer was quite good. Suggest to dine in the side room if you want to have conversation during dinner

    We'd had light bites here before, and had attended events here, but never had experienced a full meal here before. The service was fantastic - - our server was knowledgeable and attentive and fun. The Rainbow salad is the best we'd ever tasted; the coconut shrimp tapas plate was fastastic, and the duck confit - - delicious !!

    Really like the place, sat outside to the left of the front stairs, band was playing, waiter was not on his game, ordered drinks, took 15 minutes and place was not super busy, then food came I ordered chicken (very good)my wife Kobe sirloin which had a thick layer of garlic on it, when my wife asked what's on top the waiter said garlic in olive oil(overkill) so shortly after, say 15 minutes, our drinks are empty and waiter does not come back, we finish our food and about 5 minutes after that he comes back, does not ask if we want any drinks, how our food was but do we want desert and collected the plates. To bad the service didn't match the ambiance.

    We checked in early and that was nice. Confusion on who was to wait on us, so we sat for a very long time. But there was a wedding party there at the same time. But there should be staff to cover a planned large group. We had drinks which were good. Had four tapas and they were very good! Especially LIKED the huckleberry meatballs and the curry chicken patties! But then, we had to hunt down our waiter to pay.

    Although eager to try 315 for the first time we went away very disappointed with the service and, to a lesser degree, the food. We waited for quite some time to be seated (with no hostess in sight) and then waited for over an hour for our tapas with almost no interaction with the waitstaff: no water refills, no checking in, nothing. When the food did arrive, some of the dishes were not as described on the menu: the crab cakes lacked the aioli, the roasted garlic was missing from the Mediterranean plate. Although our waiter was pleasant enough, there was no "thank you" or any kind of comment made when we paid. I work in the food industry and know it's challenges, but customer service should be a priority if you want your customers to return.

    We've been to 315 many times. This was by far our least favorite experience. The service was mediocre, and the food was not what we've come to know. Perhaps it was just the seasonal menu wasn't so much to our liking. I could go into detail all the little things that went wrong, but I'd just as soon forget about it. It's been a favorite place so we will probably go back, but not for a while.

    I love the historic house and have been waiting awhile to try 315 Martinis and Tapas since winning a raffle last winter. I took a date there on a Friday night and there was live entertainment by Andy Day which we loved--great cover songs from father and son duo! I ordered the duck confit with asparagus and loved it. I also ordered 2 drinks--a martini with limoncello and a cognac mixed drink (I forget the names). Both were excellent. Service was great. There was a little holdup on the second drink, but nothing major. I'll be back!

    We eat @ 315 / Greenbrier about 2x a year. We consider it a 'nicer' place vs. some of the lower cost restaurants in town. The food is always good and although our server wasn't the best (slow to take order and never did the 'how's your dinner' follow-up), the service was acceptable. As fish/seafood only 'veggies' we can always find something good on the menu. The GF choc cake was a yummy finish to the meal. Although the music was good, the older I get the lesser volume I prefer....so I can actually hear my wife vs. reading her lips! Will go back again. Wd

    This place is truly a gem. Although they do have a full menu we decided to order what thay are known for, martini's and tapas. I had the wildberry martini which was delicious, with a little bit of muddled fruit at the bottom. Drinks were paired the Huckleberry Meatballs and the Mediterranean Plate. Meatballs=huge, at least 2X your average meatball, 2 per order in a delectable huckleberry sauce. The Mediterranean Plate was also very good - flat bread for topping with hummus, dill sauce or grilled garlic and vegetables. We dined outside on the patio which provided a calm breeze and music provided by local talent. 315 Martini's and Tapas is definitely on our visit again list & the bring out of town guests to "Taste Coeur d'Alene" list.

    We didn't know there was going to be live music when we booked, it was a very nice surprise that made the atmosphere loud and fun. We had a variety of seafood tapas that were delicious and tried a couple of their unique martinis that my hubby enjoyed very much. I decided to stick with lemon drops :) It was a rainy cool night when we were there but I very much look forward to coming back again to maybe sit on the patio!

    Enjoyed a lovely evening at your restaurant on Fri. May 16. The duck comfit and asparagus were beautifully prepared but the rice tasted days old, dried out and hard. Given the service, the entertainment and the ambiance, I was surprised by the rice. It really detracted from my experience.

    The food was great and we like to try lots of things and share between us so the small plates idea was a great fit for us. I'd love to try in the summer when the outside seating is open. Little rough on parking but not bad. The music was a bit loud for the space. Will go back and try the desk soon.

    The food was really good and they had something for every pallet. It was our first time there and we waited at the door for nearly five minutes. Several members of the staff passed us by without saying a word. This made us think that we were in the wrong place to be recieved. Just a simple, ''someone will be with you in a moment'' would have been sufficient to ease our anxieties. After being seated, our waitress, though very personable, we felt she was spread thin as our interactions were few and far between.

    Comfortable atmosphere, low lighting take a miniature flashlight for menu reading. Service was friendly and enjoyable. Service timing was just a bit slow but nothing really noticeable as we enjoyed our time during the wait. Music was relaxing and easy listening. Affordable menu all the way around. Highly recommend the Black and White Ahi, excellent, martinis are especially superb, none other compare in the area (my opinion). You cannot miss going to dinner or just for appetizers at the 3:15 Tappas Bar. Just do it!

    Every time I'm here I ask myself why I don't visit more often. The food is wonderful, the staff is 2nd to none, and the location is perfect (especially in the warmer months when the patio is open). Even on the busiest nights of the year the staff is attentive and have a good sense of humor. If you have never had the opportunity to visit 315, I say go for it! The chicken curry cakes and huckleberry meatballs are enough reason by themselves!

    The experience was memorable- we'll remember to never go back. The glasses were sticky with fingerprints, the noise level was ridiculous. We were seated in a back corner and couldn't hear each other speak (and this supposed to be our romantic Valentine's evening). The drinks took over 30 minutes to arrive. The food was terrible too. When it finally arrived, my dish (Empanada's) was congealed. We were so disappointed because 315 Martinis and Tapas came with great reviews. We do not recommend.

    The positives, food had great flavor, very friendly and attentive staff. The wine list was good and bar was good. The dissapointments. The appetiser and salad course were served on top of each other...then a very long gap before the entree was served. The food was cold and over cooked. We would go back and try it again, maybe on a not so busy a night.
