I have not eaten out in a restaurant since March and I was very nervous to come- I was completely prepared to leave if the safety protocols seemed sketchy. I had the absolute most delightful night I've had in a very very long time- and my first nuka pickle since leaving Japan!!! The cheeries jubilee was fantastic - my drinks were gorgeous and inventive, the mayo on the heirloom tomato tasted like Duke's (this is a huge compliment) and the tempura mushrooms didn't even need their very delicious dipping sauce. But most importantly, I didn't feel like my server or the chefs were put in any danger I didn't feel like I was taking advantage of another human being just so I could eat beautiful food. Thank you!

Our first time there with friends. Everyone had a great, unique experience. Food creations had some amazing flavors that you’d not be able to find easily elsewhere. They provided a very clean & socially distanced dining environment.

We made reservations to sit at a table on the patio. The entire experience was safe and socially distanced. I really appreciated the thoughtful precautions they took to make sure they were ensuring a safe, yet relaxed dining environment. The cocktails were refreshing and the food was top-notch, as always. We’ve already made reservations to visit again. :)

KIN was all around a fabulous experience. Dined in the evening on their patio. The ambiance was warm and welcoming, yet respectful of all guests by following a set of steps to ensure minimal contact with others. The service was seamless as was the method of no contact pick up of our drinks and food. Great job all around with the fabulous cocktail concoctions and specifically, the orange glacé dessert. Would definitely recommend. Our server, Stewart was knowledgeable and kind.

Kin is a delightful new addition to the Boise food scene. Their patio menu features tasty, seasonal dishes....a few of our favorites are the scallion pancakes (very flavorful), heirloom tomato dish with shrimp and the tempura mushrooms.

This was our first time trying KIN at home delivery. We loved everything about the experience. The service and food were outstanding. The menu was awesome. We enjoyed the Vasque theme. My husband had the lamb and I had the veggie (mushroom)option. It was delicious. We enjoyed the video instructions on how to plate the different courses, the cocktail mixer and entertainment (again virtual) , the dessert and coffee cake for the morning after. Highly recommend trying KIN!

Fabulous location for social drinks and small plates with friends. We sat outside in a shaded area and did not feel the heat of the Idaho summer. If you are hungry for a big meal, this location may not be the #1 choice.
The menu is smaller as I am sure the restaurant’s goal is to provide only the best local and fresh ingredients. We were visiting from out of town so had no expectations. While the small plates were very good, the only comment my husband and I had was that we wished there was a bit more variety. The wait staff and bar inventory was exceptional along with the plate presentations!

I had a perfect dining experience while visiting KIN this week. They took their public safety sanitary measures beyond anywhere else I have experienced since the pandemic has started. Everything was touch free and everyone was wearing a mask in the appropriate manner. Both cocktails I ordered were original and amazing. Not too sweet and finding a good balance between sprite forward and refreshing. I would absolutely order both of them again. All 6 food dishes I tried were insanely delicious as well. Very good sized portions for the price and a fun sharing style approach to dining, so you are able to try many things. The trout tartar was so incredible, we had to order a second one to share hah! The wait staff was super helpful and friendly and made us feel at ease, even under such strange circumstances. I was so pleased with my overall experience, I already am planning on going back next week. My husband is very uneasy about going anywhere in the current state of COVID. After hearing about my experience, he feels 100% comfortable goring out to KIN with all the extra measures they are taking to ensure safely, in an enjoy and seemingly relaxed atmosphere. Thank you KiN for being THE example. I stand up and applaud your performance!

Delicious food with a great attention to the details. Did a great job of handling the pandemic requirements; best of any restaurant I've been to since the pandemic started. An amazing assortment of micro greens on both the trout tartare and the scallion XO pancake. Great food and service. Don't miss the opportunity to spend some time at KIN.

We LOVED Kin. We'd been to State & Lemp several times and when we heard the chef left to start Kin we couldn't wait to try it. We only got to try their cocktail menu as they are not fully open yet, but all of the appetizers and drinks our group had were amazing! Highly recommend. Can't wait to go back!

Fantastic food and ambience! The mushrooms, trout, and salad were all fantastic! I enjoyed the fig kombucha also - while my friends had fancy drinks that they enjoyed. I felt so safe and respected as well with their distanced service model. Our waitress was so gentle and let us have plenty of time to enjoy our small plates. I will go again, and again, and again!

Another fantastic dining experience with Kin. My friend and I were fortunate enough to enjoy cocktails and small plate dishes at Kin's first outdoor dining event. I genuinely love the owners, the chef, the pastry chef and all of the staff. And the food is beautiful, delicious and local. The cocktails are innovative and complex.

We totally enjoyed the Kin musical/food experience and would absolutely attend again. We were bummed to not be able to see the musician from where we were sitting but, it was still a nice vibe. The food was fun, it was simple to order cocktails and such and the service was great.
