    Hands down this is my favorite place to have brunch in Boise, everything I've tried on the menu is delicious. Try the Ham and Halloumi Sandwich, I think it's amazing. Other stand out dishes for me are the Oatmeal Soufflé, Breakfast Pizza, and Green Eggs and Ham.

    I arranged a small bachelorette dinner party at Red Feather and it turned out to be a wonderful experience. Our server was as nice as could be and had great suggestions for cocktails/appetizers. The food was fantastic. We were even surprised with a champagne toast. I recommend making reservations here for any get-together.

    I would not recommend this restraunt to anybody. Our waiter wasnt that friendly and we were told they ran out of duck which was on more than half their menu and when we left we saw that other people had duck dishes. The food also tasted burnt or not cooked enough I.e. fries and pizza. Nothing but a waste of time and money

    We love Red Feather and always make it our special place. Service is always good and the food is fantastic. However, our waitress was doing an incredible job but I had the feeling the cook staff was very slow. We ended up getting our salad with our main meal instead of beforehand. Anyway, super food, super waitress; just confused on the cooking end of it. Thanks, Pete Zimowsky, Zimo's Northwest Outdoors www.getoutdoorsnorthwest.com

    We were excited to dine at Red Feather after hearing good things, but it was not what we had hoped. Our server seemed "put upon" and any questions we asked, she looked at us like we were idiots. My sister and I split a lamb and a lounge burger. Usually a server is willing to cut it for us but she just said "Well I bring you a knife". Also, we were never asked how we liked our burger cooked and the lounge burger was almost raw and falling apart. The lamb burger was good. We had a well behaved party of 5. No texting, nothing out of the way on our part. Ordered lots of food and drink and tipped accordingly. Service should be held to a higher standard at a place like this.

  • Father's Day Brunch @ Red Feather

    Dined on 6/15/2014
    I had made reservations for 10 & an infant seat spot was needed. Our setting was ideal as we were upstairs in a corner booth area that was the perfect size and included room for our two week old grandson. The server was lovely and attentive. The food was great and we enjoyed our privacy! Thank you, Red Feather for fantastically providing us with great food, ambiance, and space to celebrate Father's Day. We loved it!

  • Halibut of Legend
    GGSeymour
    Dined on 6/12/2014
    We've lived by Red Feather for about 2 years, but last week was our first chance to actually give them a shot. Our server, who was incredibly kind and knowledgeable, mentioned that people tend to rave about the halibut, so, at her suggestion, I chose that dish, and was blown away. My wife had the arugula + fennel + bacon pizza, which was excellent too. Honorable mention to the polenta fries and cumin aioli, an excellent appetizer. We each had 2 drinks, shared an appetizer, each had an entree, as well as dessert... and still got out under $100 with tip. Oh, and the ambiance is great, too - the patio looks awesome for a few drinks with friends, but the inside (especially upstairs) makes for a great date night.

  • Red Feather/Bad Table
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 5/17/2014
    It was naive of me to think making reservations would provide a table in a quiet location. Three of us were given a table top for two right by the door. We had to juggle our plates, it was not comfortable, it was noisy. I asked for a table elsewhere and was denied that...though we saw plenty of tables that were open the entire time we dined. I've had plenty of enjoyable meals at Red Feather, but the table on this past visit was intolerable.

    Waitress is not well trained. She was not familiar with wines sufficient to make a recommendation. At first, we were seated at a table maybe suited for cocktails, but certainly not dinner. The second table was near a burned out light and spent candle. The meal was very good, came quickly. The waitress needs to know more about the wine list.

    Used to love this restaurant but the last two visits have been very disappointing. They have reduced their menu greatly. We were there early (6:30 ish) and they were already out of some menu items. The waitress did not have it together and ended up putting several things on our check that we did not order. I won't go back :(

    I got the half chicken and switched out the pilaf for the spatz, and maybe that was my mistake, but the meal was very redundant and boring. The chicken was moist and a beautiful brown and the spatz was buttery rich and... brown... There was no color on the plate. Plus there was nothing to cut through all that richness. It was a very one note meal. I tasted my mother's pizza and didn't note anything special about it. The last time I went to the red feather, the meal was delicious and the menu more creative. I think the service is good (though the waitress was wearing perfume which is inappropriate. I'm there to experience the food and drink, not smell her the entire time.) Overall it was ok, but it could have been better.

    We had Easter brunch and were seated immediately. The breakfast menu is varied and interesting. The fancy mimosa - delightful. The music was perfect. The waitstaff person, however, wasn't very good. She forgot the drink order and one of our food orders was wrong. She was so disinterested that we just ate what she gave us. She was unpleasant and seemed very distracted as she complained about how tired she was. We found it odd that she was in the restaurant business which usually requires better customer service.

    My wife has been to Red Feather for brunch many times and has been raving about it. We went for Easter and she was right, the food was great! Very unique offerings that were perfect for someone looking for something different. We have been to Red Feather for dinner a few times and the food was "hit or miss" on the quality and temp, but brunch was just fine.
