For a memorable food and wine experience Candle in the Woods is amazing. Dave has so much energy and desire to please. 10+ courses with wine for $140. Love it!
Absolutely phenomenal experience! The variety of food and wine is amazing. My wife and I joined a party of six and made new friends. We all had so much fun and decided to return again in a few months!
No menu. No choice. Not dinner. A true dining experience! Take the limo and be hungry. One of the best food experiences of your life awaits you at Candle in the Woods.

Absolutely incredible 5 star food and dining experience!
Autumn, thank you so much! It was great having you and Mike join us... what a fun evening! Looking forward to the next time, and thank you for your support!
We had the most amazing experience! From the time the limo picked us up to the game room, the wine pairings with the steak s’more, the Smokey scallop, jalapeño adult pop tart , and all the commentary in between.... it was a night we will remember forever! We can’t wait to bring our friends back so they can take part in what we just did!
Thank you SO much for joining us! We truly appreciate your feedback and your support!
If you are looking for an amazing food experience where you are truly entertained by the plate in front of you as well as the staff who prepare it for you, you are in for a treat. The wine was amazing, along with the wine experts who are pouring. This place is absolutely incredible!
Thank you, Lindsey! It was such a pleasure having you join us Looking forward to the next time!
Best full meal that I have ever had! The tastings were a work of art and I loved the story of the food and the wines that went along with them. Would highly recommend!
Tyrone, it was such a pleasure having you and Kacie join us for Valentines day, and look forward to the next time! Blessings!
The food was OUTSTANDING! All 13 courses were delicious and beautiful, and the wines were amazing. This is not just dinner is an experience.
I will definitely come back and recommend this place to friends and family
Amazing, amazing. Top of the top. Absolutely the best dining experience I have ever had!

The nicest and greatest staff we have ever had. They were very accommodating and made our dinner and anniversary so amazing. We're already planning on returning on our next anniversary. Thank you guys for such an amazing experience
One of the best dinner experiences I have had, the food was incredible and the hospitality was above and beyond. Definitely going to go back.
Amazing experience! I wanted something special for my husband's 70th birthday and Candle in the Woods did not disappoint! The food, seasonings and flavor combinations were quite surprising but, honestly, incredible! The wines paired with the foods were awesome! Chef Dave and his team are beyond talented! The location has both ambience and intimacy! The evening clearly exceeded our expectations! Thank you for a very memorable evening!
Fantastic experience! Personal service with the chef who explains all the 13 courses in detail. Food was beautifully prepared and delicious. Setting was cozy and tasteful. We will be back.
A great food adventure, highly recommended for a most interesting evening. Nice people too.
Absolutely amazing experience. Every bite of food was like a party in my mouth and utterly surprising. Making sweet savory and savory sweet, Chef Dave is a food magician. His team is second to none and the service was so personal. I highly recommend the limo service so you can thoroughly enjoy your evening without the stress of driving home. A North Idaho must experience and every Foodie's dream come true!
We have received a notice that we had posted a one star review. Not so. We totally enjoyed your food, staff, and restaurant and would recommend it to everyone. We have reposted a 5 star review as we did originally. Thanks again for a special evening. Posting of this message is Friday, Sept 6, 2019.
We had an absolutely incredible dinning experience at Candle in the Wood last night. Every bite was perfect and the company couldn’t beat.
Outstanding food and wonderful people. You are greeted at the door by name, treated like family and fed like royalty
This was the best dining experience we have ever had.
We also had lots of fun and got to meet new people. The food was so good that we want to go back for more.
Absolutely fantastic! Can’t wait to go again with a big party of my own. Limo service is the only way to go.
While the food and wine were adequate, the worst part of the whole dinner was feeling rushed. We were almost never allowed to finish our courses before the next one came along and worse yet, found ourselves gulping down our wine in order to prepare for the next wine event. There was little spacing in between courses. It felt very rushed, not relaxing, and would probably had been better for us to stay at the table and finish the course or wine in a relaxing fashion rather than taking our wine glasses down to the basement as we were rushed off. Dave, the chef, took a great deal of time talking about himself and his life and skills rather than taking an interesting in the guests, or at least making it a little more 50/50. While his life story is interesting, it would have evoked some interesting conversations had he asked a little more about us guests and our life experiences and why we came to this meal. Dave is a good chef but a little ego-centric. Would probably never do this again, nor refer it to any one else.
Great food and an even better experience!
It was the best anniversary celebration we’ve ever experienced! An unforgettable night! Loved how Chef Dave guided us through the whole experience. The food & wine was superb!
Outstanding dinner experience. Hats off to everyone involved. We will be back.
This had to be one of the most fascinating dinners that I have ever had. There were an amazing number of courses and all were creative and unique. The wine parings were excellent. Go hungry and I don't recommend having a cocktail before you go, you'll get enough to drink!! Also, the limo service is a no brainer!! Scope out the wine cellar - it's impressive.
Dave puts on a culinary event that results in one blast of unique and unexpected taste after another. The organization and ambiance allows the meal to flow from one small plate to the next at a pace allowing diners to savor the previous serving just long enough to begin anticipating the next. Each plate presented a combination of ingredients one would never expect to see in the same recipe, yet all got along amazingly well. Wine pairings were exceptional; none overshadowing the food. All in all, a memorable evening.
We loved it! We will definitely be back for a summer time experience :)
Had a wonderful evening! Food was unique, tasty and went well with the wine pairings. The whole night was such a treat! Can't wait to dine there again!
