We visited Owyhee Tavern during Boise restaurant week and we were so very excited to experience their 3 course meal. Since Covid, we haven’t spent much time inside of restaurants and Owyhee Tavern made this a date to remember. Our service was excellent and thoughtful, the food was remarkable. We were to stuffed from our butternut squash soup and New York steak Oscar, smoked bone in filet mignon to enjoy our desert in house but it tasted so good even at home.

We had our book club brunch meeting here and it was awesome! Bottomless mimosas were a hit, the tavern Bloody Mary’s are the BEST, the huevos rancheros dish is my absolute favorite and the service was super. We come here for every book club meeting & other dates, & it’s always a great experience. Will continue to dine here and recommend it to family and friends 💕

Ended up eating in the bar because we wanted to watch the football game. The waitress was amazing, full of great suggestions and it never took long for a drink or food to arrive at table. All was delicious!

It was an all around lovely evening.
Tables were adequately blocked for good social distancing, all the staff were masked, the service was impeccable, the food was delicious! The lobster pasta was oh, so good - it had a delicate and flavorful sauce and a lobster tail on top.
The free birthday dessert 🍨made me feel so special!
I recommend the Owyhee Tavern and my husband and I will definitely return.

Apps, salads & entrees were all very good. It appears they changed the recipe for the cinnamon roll bread pudding, as it wasn't as good as it was last time we ate there. Previously it had been best in my 50+ yr life, but this time it was good but not great.

The Tavern has adapted well to the pandemic. Everything is clean and all staff were wearing masks and gloves on the Thursday night I was there. Always love the charchuterie platter as a starter and we paired it with some Spanish Cava Champagne....DELICIOUS. Both of our fish entrees were cooked to perfection. We were too full for dessert. The atmosphere was rather loud but then again we were seated in the bar so that's to be expected.

Ambience and location were great. Hostess was very accommodating. Server wasn’t very knowledgeable about the type of oysters. Drinks were great, well balanced. Steak was good, not wonderful. Remaining dinner was balanced.
