Berryhill's has been a personal favorite of mine for a long time. I'm never disappointed. The food is great.
This was my first time here and as we walked in, I was surprised. It was a Saturday at 7:00pm and the restaurant was empty. What brought us here was the Bacon/Sirloin Burger and so we ordered them and some drinks. Our group got martinis and bloody marys and it was unanimous, they were good but not great. For the price, there are better to be had just a few blocks away. The food, like the drinks was good but not great. Everything was bacon based and very rich. My burger was tasty but the major flavor I got was the cheese... The bacon felt like a side note when it was supposed to be the star. I will try to come back for brunch but I will wait a bit.
I ordered the froed chicken. The food was bland. Really lacked seasoning. The server was actually quite rude. I won't be returning. The only good thing was the bacon cheese dip.
Still one of my favorite places for over 12yrs now.
Berryhill's food is very good and creative but though service is very good, it's SLOW. No dining should take this long. Speed of service is why I quit having lunch here and why I'm reluctant to have dinner here if I have movie plans after.
John Berryhill and his chefs and servers are committed to excellence and personal service!
We were nearly the only diners at 6:30 on a night when all the other restaurants in town were packed. Made us worry. The waiter seemed distracted. The food was excellent, however, and the chef made an appearance at our table to say thanks which was appreciated. The space is beautiful and the ambiance would be top if there were more people to fill out the tables.
Berryhill is a Boise staple that continues to evolve and still offers interesting food and creativity.
We started with Berryhill's meatball appetizer and they were great. I ordered the scallops with "ear" pasta in cilantro sauce and it was fabulous! Everyone ordered something different and we all immensely enjoyed our dinners.....and desert (creme brûlée, and peach pie)!
Hostess was not very professional (chewing gum while talking) and not very friendly. Server didn't know special and slow to serve water. Server grabbed drink by the rim and didn't use a napkin to bring a straw. I had the Three Herb chicken and was very greasy and looked thrown together. Used to be good but not planning on going back.
