    Drinks were on par and our service was as good as could be expected for a busy Friday night. My only complaint is that I'd specifically asked to sit at a table upstairs to accommodate our bigger group easier but when I got there they said they only had a table downstairs for us, which was fine, I was just looking forward to the rounder tables upstairs to make it easier for all of us to be able to talk without yelling. I figured since I had made the invite 4 days ahead of time we would have got it.

    Haven't been to RF in some months and I'm not digging the new upstairs arrangement. Sitting the back corner is pretty close to other diners. Bring back the tables for 2 along the rail! Enjoyed the food as always.

    I've been to Red Feather more than a dozen of times but this last trip may be my last for a while.We went on a Sunday around 11, service was slower than normal for a Sunday, one of thwir busiest days. The delicious wonderful French Toast is no longer on the menu& while I realize that menu's are constantly changing, you need to have french toast or not run out of pancakes by 11. But the food I did order was delicious even if I was jonesing for pancakes or French toast. The cheddar hash is a must & never diasapoints, 2 eggs, pretty standard , you can't mess that up and grapefruit brulee, although delicious, was not correctly when it was sent out. Do not sit close to the door unless you bring a coat & are ready to be crowded by those waiting.

    Our group of four had an excellent dinner at Red Feather Saturday night. We started with two salads...roasted beet and grilled kale. Both were beautiful and delicious. We also had a flatbread with tapenade that was good. Two of our group had the prefix three course for restaurant week...duck and salmon. The others had the pork chop and the halibut. All of the entrees were very good. We ordered beer and wine by the glass. We shared a dessert... The restaurant is very attractive. Competent service from the wait staff. Lovely dinner on a cold and rainy night!

    Red Feather is great in so many aspects. Locally grown food, superb service, always amazing taste & great ambiance. I recently took my friend there to show my appreciation of his kindness taking care of my daughters bunny while we were in Seattle. I also loved the ease of making reservations on-line.

    Red feather definitely is not what it use to be. Food has gone way downhill. It is not good. The lamb burger looked like a slider on a huge bun, the short ribs were full of fat. If I were the chef I would have never let that out of the kitchen. We we sent it back, not even a manager came to the table to check on us. Our service was terrible. The waitress couldn't open our wine, was slow, took forever to help us. She had no idea what was going on. We would should have left except the atmosphere was so cool. It's a shame - cool, yet I won't go back.

    The food was great! The portions were not overwhelming and priced well. You could tell quality ingredients were used. The selection was great for me, a vegetarian, and my meat-eating boyfriend. The carafe of mimosa was also an excellent deal. We went for a special occasion and really enjoyed the experience.

    My husband and I just moved to Idaho 3 months ago. Our first night out was at the Red Feather Lounge this weekend. We both really enjoyed our meals. The vibe in the restaurant was relaxed and positive. Everyone was friendly and easy-going. Our drinks were perfect, the waitstaff was tops. Can't wait to check out their sister pub too.

    We enjoyed our brunch here; it had been awhile since we'd tried it. Good brunch cocktails (Venetian Mimosa is not the usual cloying mimosa). Son of a Biscuit: deliciously crunchy, moist fried chicken; dish well-seasoned & tasty. Fall Veggie Eggs Benedict not quite as successful: veggies were cold (right out of fridge)--ribbons of squash & chopped kale. The first bite was almost ice-cold, but once the eggs warmed them up a bit it was better. The dish would be more successful if the veggies had been given a light saute; also, toasting the crumpet/English muffin would elevate this dish (and all benedicts) even more. Enjoyed the grapefruit brulee--I want a blowtorch at home to duplicate this one!

    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.

    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!

    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.
