Our brunch was very good and full of flavor. I had a candied cheese stuffed date. It was a different taste but wouldnt order again. The ribeye and prime rib were just right. Tender and mouth watering. Our server was great and enjoyed talking with thru out our brunch. Cheesecake was also very fresh and ate all of it.

Ate there for dinner once before and it was excellent. We decided to try the brunch. It was very good. My steak was not as good as before but otherwise very pleasant. I wish they would put a combo of fish and steak. I love the ambiance and the outdoors is breathtaking. I am from Las Vegas, I have family in Sweet so I will return.

Nice drive from Boise. Super friendly staff. Fun environment. Food is good however at that price point we expect perfection. Prices are comparable to Ruth’s and other high end steak houses. They can can get there but need to focus on the finish, both in presentation and taste to deliver the “wow” factor.

We had an amazing time eating here for our anniversary. Food could have been seasoned a little more. Steaks were slightly overcooked. Potatoes were dry. Lobster was perfect, service was excellent. Great music. We will definitely be back!

The place was beautiful we heard awesome things about it and we drove from Boise to check it out. Although we were slightly disappointed both our appetizers came out cold, our steaks were not cooked and ordered and our side salads and soups never came out with our meals.

Overall the vibe was super cool and very well thought out- we were just expecting more from the food!!!

We had friends visiting from out of town and had heard positive reviews. The atmosphere is great and the service was excellent. Not a big menu, but if you like beef, this is the place! Prices are steep, but worth it for special occasions.

This was our 3rd trip to Anderson Reserve. The service is better than the food, and the food is amazing! It is a little pricey, but you get what you pay for. Ask for JC as your waitress, you will not be disappointed!

We have been looking forward to trying Anderson Reserve since they opened last year. Our expectations were probably set a little too high. But we heard amazing things and the place looked so cool. We think they may have been having an off day (with having a big event the night before). Not excuse though... the service was decent. The waiter was friendly but not the most knowledgeable. Our first course for brunch was delicious. Unfortunately the coffee was cold and the creamer had turned and curdled in the coffee. The main course had some issues. The food was like warm but flavor was there. One steak was almost raw when ordered med rare. One was cooked perfect. The desserts were delicious. The cheesecake and the cinnamon roll pancakes both were so good. It was a like drive for an okay meal. We would like to try out dinner sometime. And hope for a better experience.

We had the $35 Three Course Sunday Brunch.
Location is beautiful.
Food was average.
First Course: Prosciutto wrapped dates were delicious.
Second Course: Aged steak was a disappointment, lacked favor.
Third Course: Cheese Cake was frozen.

First visit to Anderson Reserve was a disappointment.

We love the experience here. What a surprise out in Sweet Idaho! We live in Boise and have driven out to have dinner twice in the last week. We had 6 people in our group and called to get us all to fit at one table on a busy Saturday night and they went out of their way to accommodate us. We will definitely be visiting again soon. We would love to try the Sunday brunch.

Excellent food, beautiful building and surroundings but for the price you pay needs better seating/tables (very uncomfortable to sit on a wood bar stool) utensils should be replaced with each course change, table needs to be kept clean/cleared and the waiter/waitress needs to be better trained to allow more time to enjoy the food and overall experience of the restaurant. We felt rushed in the beginning but were able to politely let the server know we needed more time to finish each course; we were offered to-go boxes after barely taking a few bites of our meal (there was only one other table that just arrived when we were asked that). We came early to avoid a crowd (which we did) so we could enjoy the evening (but felt we were let down). I would like to go again but am very weary to pay such a big price for the food when the overall experience and enjoyment were a big let down, however, I would like to give them another chance and would recommend to a friend with the above warnings. I think everyone deserve another chance to improve and I believe they can if the truly read these reviews and do better with their service.

Finger steaks were good. Filet Mignon was overcooked for a medium and dry. Rib Eye was undercooked for a medium and was tough, Very overpriced at $48 per plate for the quality. Didn't complain (our bad) but may consider another try just in case it was an off night. Very disappointed after hearing such great things.

Two weeks in a row for brunch. Our only disappointment was the menu didn’t change. But you will not be disappointed by the food and the service. The saki Bloody Mary is awesome.
