    Date night dinner was wonderful at Apericena! The restaurant has replaced the previous Hyde House and has cozy seating inside (perfect for couples or small groups) and there is additional seating on the patio (in a heated tent during winter). The food was fresh and tasty and also thoughtfully seasoned, prepared, and plated. Service was wonderful (Siena is wonderful!). Overall a delicious experience and we’ll be back again soon!

    We were greeted by friendly and inviting staff! Recommendations were given and we started off with the bruschetta, soup, wine and beer! The tomato bisque and French onion soup were delightful. Then we ordered our main course and it was amazing although we were already full with appetizers and soup. My husband got the lamb pasta dish and said it was pretty good but a little too peppery. The sausage pasta with lemon and kale was absolutely amazing! It had a little kick to it and I could barely taste the lemon. Pasta was creamy and delicious. We look forward to another meal here, this time with dessert (they were in a transition to a new pastry chef so much wasn’t available). Overall, it was a wonderful experience and we love supporting new small businesses especially when they pride themselves in quality ingredients!

    Another incredible experience that you should be a part of in Boise. I have had the pleasure to eat there twice. Once with friends; the other with family. Apericena is the place that fits any occasion. The food, the staff, the location, the wine list.

    We were really excited to try this restaurant as it’s close to our house and we can walk there. They were out of almost everything we wanted to order and wouldn’t open a new bottle of wine when it was listed as by the glass? The whipped feta appetizer and the Brussels sprouts were good but everything else was just sort of okay. I wanted this to become a regular restaurant for us but I don’t know if we’ll go back.

    The food was uninspired and poorly prepared. The beef bourguingon and coq au vin were served dry. No sauce or braising liquid. The whipped feta appetizer was almost exactly the recipe from Ina Garten. Home cooks execute these meals better everyday. The restaurant is TINY. I won’t be back.

    ApericenaResponded on November 4, 2022Hi Pamela! We are sorry to see this review. We serve a substantial volume of sauce with the Boeuf and Coq au Vin, which happen to be two best sellers! Fortunately, we can see what guests have ordered and how often they have dined with us. Your ticket does not show you ordered the Whipped Feta, and we can confirm that 80% of the ingredients in Ina Garten's recipe online does not match ours - another guest favorite! Our space is small, and we love it. Best of luck in your dining endeavors. Chef

    The food was absolutely amazing, I ordered the penne pasta with chicken and the fusion of flavors were to die for, Danielle the owner stopped by our table and welcomed us in the must sweet way, offered us blankets since we sat outside, our waiter was THE BEST!! Super accommodating, super attentive , polite but friendly, stayed on top re filling our drinks and just around in case we needed anything, they will be now open for lunch and I can’t recommend this place enough. 100% on every level ❤️

    The food was just OK certainly not in line with the pricing. It was also frustrating to be charged a $15 fee for wine when they don’t offer their own selection. It’s not listed but it’s important to know that this restaurant does not have a liquor license, so no beer wine wine cocktails are available. We did not know this and was very disappointing.

    The food was solid, but the entrees were brought out while we were still eating our appetizers and they were lukewarm. They also charged a $15 cork fee despite having no beer/wine license. Considering the prices on their menu, I would expect more of a professional fine dining experience.

    Honestly with the limited menu and small portions it was a bit pricey for the meal, despite how good it was. Also with temporarily no beer and wine, as a surprise when arriving, the idea of a corking fee is not agreeable, even if "discounted". If the food wasn't so pricey, I'd understand, but there's pretty of profit in the food.

    This place has a lot of potential, and I hope to give it 5 stars in the future! The staff was great, and the whipped feta appetizer is AMAZING. I could have eaten another entire dish of it. I had the beef bourguingnon and it was good, but a little on the dry side for the price point. My husband had the cioppino, and it was also good but parts of it were over cooked as well. I think these are things that will work themselves out over time and if so, this will be an excellent addition to Boise’s restaurant scene.
