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.

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.

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.

Always super great food. Fig and feta grilled cheese is super yummy, and a Bacon Stix! ....service was actually better than the last 4 visits.

The menu seems limited compared to previous visits. More bacon bits, less variety.

Chairs were uncomfortably hard and the restaurant only had 2 pillows for the seats. Service took a while drinks sat at the bar waiting to be delivered. Food was cold Grits were pastie and if they were cheesy? Food needed basic season and the fried Chicken was dry.

Good food and service. Drinks are overpriced. Restaurant should have warned us that the Tequila was $32 a glass. This put a dark cloud on the evening. Will probably not return for dinner any time soon.

It was prime time on a Friday evening and Berryhill had an opening so we went there. Service was outstanding - fast and attentive. Had the special of the day and the prawns in a chilli oil. Have had the prawns before but this time the chillies were burnt and dish was overly greasy. The special was just ok. The restaurant was practically empty - disappointing for an end-of-the-month Friday evening. Not sure if we would return.

Exceptional service & food! Every time we have people in town visiting we always bring them in. Chef is always friendly and appreciative. Must go!

As usual, we had a very nice dinner at Berryhill. I had the spinach salad and the lasagna, both of which were very good. My husband had the Mac & Cheese with chicken which was just okay. We were wondering why it got an award as it was nothing special. Our guests both enjoyed their meal choices. The service was great and the prices are reasonable. We will go back but will wait until the weather is warmer so we can sit outside on their patio.

Generally the food is consistently good. Surprisingly, and sadly, it did not live up to expectations.

We have been to Berryhill many times over the years and were so disappointed in the quality of the food that I felt compelled to leave a review. The Scallops were very sandy, the pasta uninspired (kept salting it), the shrimp rubbery and the bread not so fresh. This restaurant has always been one of our "go to's" for a very nice meal and ambiance with casual attire accepted. I know they can do better, but it's hard to improve if you don't know!

We will be back to give Berryhill another whack!

As always, never disappointed when we go to Berryhill. Food is always off the chart good.
