About 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.

We only have on-street parking but have never had any complaints as to accessibility. We have little competition for parking at night as we are in a semi-residential area.

315 Martinis and Tapas Ratings and Reviews
I am from Spokane and 315 and Greenbriar Inn are worth the trip to Couer D'Alene. The food was delicious, the service was stellar and the owner Kris, was absolutely lovely. The rooms at the Inn are quaint and lovely. I will definitely be back. ..sooner than later!
Was not impressed with this place after being recommended by friends. The best plat of the evening was the yellow and red beet salad. The tapas portions were too small and simply not on par with other tapas experiences we have had across the country. Staff seemed short-handed and inattentive. Restaurant furnishings, although we know they were going for more of an antique setting, were uncomfortable. Just not enough about this place that would motivate us to come back.
Our evening was a delight in every way. The property is a delight to visit, a nicely preserved historical home that offers an intimate setting whether indoors or outside on the deck. The character of the property comes through in every detail while offering every modern convenience and none of the old-building squeaks and creaks we've encountered in similar properties!
Our meal was wonderful, with nicely-sized portions that allowed a bit of room for the scrumptious cheesecake for dessert! Although I'm not a foodie, we will definitely return to enjoy the wonderful food and intimate atmosphere.
The wait staff was attentive without hovering, very welcoming and pleasant in all their interactions during our visit. Our evening entertainer, Echo Elysium, offered up a wonderful serving of R&B music that completed the whole experience. Absolutely perfect date night in a delightfully romantic setting.
What a nice surprise hidden in this neighborhood. This beautiful home, with such an interesting history, has been converted to a warm and inviting restaurant. There are multiple rooms with cozy nooks, as well as plenty of patio space. To our surprise, there was live entertainment with fabulous talent. However, the star of the evening was the amazing tapas dishes, as well as a delicious beet salad.
We looked up this place on Yelp and decided to try it. Very special interior of an old Victorian. Was once a brothel. The martini list was 3 pages long. We tried 4 different ones. The tapas were all great, but the crab cakes could have been crispier. Salads were inviting. Lots of huckleberries. Apple dessert was tasty too. Would recommend it to anyone.
315 is housed in an old signature Coeur d'Alene brick home built in 1908. It was evidently built with care in order to display the builder's capabilities. Buildings like this can take on a life quite apart from their varied uses through time. In it's current permutation - a restaurant and bar - the home lives on and adds to its use well. As for our experience at 315, I can only say it was amazing. We ended up listening to the band which was playing on the lawn from the balcony until they stopped playing at 09:00. We just ordered random tapas and drank their unique martinis. The staff were knowledgeable and professional. The food and drinks came quickly. We will definitely go back next month when we return.
I love that it is located in an historic house that has a story! The food was good. The menu is some what limited. We ended up ordering a mixed appetizer plate and three different tapas. The spiked Huckleberry Lemonade was very good and refreshing for a warm evening.
We chose this restaurant as it was one we have been wanting to try for awhile. It was a little pricey but very nice atmosphere for our special occasion. They had a guitar player that sang and was very entertaining and loved his choice of songs. It was a little loud and hard to hear my husband and we were at the very back of the room from where he played. Overall though it was a nice night out for us and will keep this restaurant in mind for another special occasion. Would like to go back there in the much warmer weather and sit outside as they have a very nice outdoor area!
Our server took a long time before finally coming to our table. My wife asked about 2 wines. The Server said she would be glad to bring a taste. That was the last we saw of her for 20 minutes. We finally snagged her and she said "Oops, I forgot you didn't I". She was just about to take off again without asking if we might like order since we had about a half hour to study the menu.
We ordered a meal of several tapas. When we finished, we ordered desert and coffee with it. I asked for a refill, the Server brought me a 1/2 cup and said that was all that was in the pot, and left. I assumed she would return in a bit and fill it up, but no, I guess that would have been expecting too much. Keep in mind this was not even close to closing time. the restaurant was still about half full.
French onion soup: The bread and cheese topping covered only about 1/2 the bowl. This may have been due to the size of the bow. The soup itself was bland and did not have any depth of flavor. it was more like a mild broth.
Portobello Mushroom: The flavor of the sauce was overpowering and reminiscent of frozen “Bagel Bites”. Could not taste the mushroom or the sausage.
Black and White Ahi: This has been my favorite dish since they started serving it years ago. It was over cooked and the wasabi aioli was so bland there no wasabi taste at all. If our Server was a bit more attentive, I would have requested a side of wasabi so I could have spiced it up a bit. The wasabi soy sauce was the same with no hint of wasabi or other flavorings.
Berry Crumble: We thought the Server said it was a berry crumble, but it turned out to be apple. The “crumble” was a granola type mix that was like eating cereal rather than a traditional crumble. Between it being apple rather than berry, and the crumble mix, it was disappointing.
Over all our meal and the service was very disappointing. New chef? New wait staff? This meal and the service was not up to 315 M&T's old standards.
We were looking for something lighter for dinner. My husband and I went with our 23-year-old son and had a great time. The service was great! The tapas were over the top amazing! and our server was friendly and took good care of us.
This restaurant is set in an older home in the center of Coeur d'Alene. It's wonderful!
We will definitely be back when we return to Coeur d'Alene.
If you go to Coeur d'Aene don't miss this terrific find!
We have eaten there several times in the past it the food was very good. We will try it again but not on Valentines or any other holiday. The paper and internet said glass of wine included with the $45 valentines special but we were told misprint so they did not honor it. It was over priced for what we received! Salad and appetizers were good. My AHI tuna was overcooked was barely pink in middle had to ask for the wasabi which said on menu it came with. My rice was not good and the asparagus was overdone but eatable. Husband had chicken and it was very good , his whole meal was.
Service was decent, and venue and music were great. However, I'm surprised by other reviews because we found the food to be lacking in quality all around. We started with a cheese board, which should be straight-forward, but it was served with unripe rock hard pears. We shared a house salad next, which would have been really good if not for more unripe pears and too much dressing. Chicken lettuce wraps would have been the best part of the meal, had it not been for the stale rice noodles. The Dungeness crab cakes, which are $16 for two, were way too salty and over worked (no lumps of crab) - I couldn't take more than a bite or two. I'm certain the crab came from a can, which is unacceptable for the Northwest. Our Saturday evening tapas experience comes down to complete inattention to detail by the kitchen staff. Scratch is our go-to restaurant in Coeur d'Alene, and we won't waver from it again.
Cozy atmosphere, great Jazz/blues live music, very tasty food and wonderful drinks, great service. They turned the lights down low and lit the candle on our table which was a nice touch. Just what our long-overdue date night needed! We will definitely be back!
Dined here with family from out of town, on a Friday night. The food is really creative and delicious. Their ahi tuna is especially excellent. I had banana bread pudding, though, that was really dry (yes...pudding, dry). Other desserts were outstanding.
My big beef was that we spent well over $200 on dinner for five, but had to shout at each other to be heard. The singer was very talented, but had his amp blaring, and seemed more into himself and his music, then providing music for diners who--though it may seem controversial--want to interact with one another.
Management... if you are listening (please be listening!), your room is way too small to have music that loud. It ruined an otherwise delightful evening.
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.
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
the service was very good. there was a musician playing from 6-9pm. he was very good but we were meeting someone for the first time and wanted to be able to talk. not a chance with the music. we saw some tables in the entry and were able to move there. there the music was very low and nice.
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.
