The food and service was fantastic! Our one complaint was that the restaurant was WAY to bright! We asked our waiter to lower the lights which he did right away, but other staff kept raising the lights back to full bright. It made us feel like we couldn’t fully relax for an evening meal. That being said, I will definitely be back but will continue to ask the staff to lower the lights.

Ugh. I'm really disappointing to hear the lights were a distraction during your visit to Trillium. I'll admit that is a pet peeve of mine as well so I completely understand this being a buzzkill. Luckily this was an oddity and I have addressed it with the responsible person. I am however really happy to hear we nailed the remaining portion of your dinner and we'll look forward to see you again (in better lighting!). Have a great day and thank you for the review!

What an absolutely amazing experience! The food, the staff, and the atmosphere were well above my expectations. This was our first family dinner at Trillium, and it won’t be our last. The crispy Brussels sprouts, crab strata, and bison meatloaf were perfection. Dessert was a peach crème brûlée that was maybe the best thing I ever put in my mouth! 😂 When we are in Boise again, we will definitely be back!

Our server Marin was excellent. The poutine was tasty but would have been better with crispy fries. Clam chowder was average. I had the pork shank and it was fantastic. Wife had huckle berry short ribs but they were really sweet. Dessert was good. Portion sizes were huge and if we eat again we would definitely just get a main.

This was my second time to Trillium and it didn’t disappoint. We have the stuffed jalapeño’s for starters and loved them. For entrees we shared the New York steak frites and the crusted halibut. Both were tasty. Our server was in training so was fun to have the friendly banter and support her through that. We will definitely be back.

The service and Ambiance were wonderful. The seating at the table was quite uncomfortable. The food was overpriced and bland. My husband had the New York Steak with mushrooms and there was grit in the mushrooms because they were not washed properly. I had the Pork Shank and the meat was poorly seasoned, and without the additional toppings that were very good I would have sent the dish back. Also they had no gluten free options for entrees or desserts. They did give us a complementary dessert for our anniversary which was very good.

Our wonderful dining experience at Trillium was only enhanced by the XLNT customer service we received from our server (Marin?). She offered ‘spot on’ food & wine suggestions and went out of her way to accommodate our every expectation. Compliments to the chef on a very interesting and DEE-licious menu! The Szechuan Roasted Cauliflower and the Smoked Trout Poutine with Lemon Dill Cream Sauce were our favorite small plates of all that we tried.

Globs of chewy cheese in the stroganoff, too many tomatoes in the caesar salad (shouldn't have tomatoes in a caesar salad at all) , should note that there are actual sardines on the caesar, filet mignon too salty, flat bread pizza bland.

Good food. Service was good, but timing was off. Seems odd to complain that it was too fast, but drinks, appetizers, and entree and we were in and out in less than an hour.

The new Trillium is a vast improvement over its predecessor, Emilio's. We went there for an anniversary dinner, and overall the experience was outstanding. My steak frites was superb, and both appetizers (crab strata and Brussels sprouts) were delicious. My wife's halibut was excellent, although the puree it came nestled in was a little bland. Only two oddities: I made some special requests when I made the reservation on OpenTable, and those comments were either missed or ignored by the hostess. (Also, the hostess, while well-intentioned, was far too effusive for a fine dining restaurant.) Also, there was neither a dessert menu nor a dessert cart, and so we were left with our server's somewhat tepid descriptions of the dessert choices. We normally have dessert for a special occasion meal, but her descriptions left us uninterested. A cart or menu would have been appreciated. But, we will certainly go back.

The newly remodeled restaurant when it changed to Trillium was inviting and the cushioned chairs were very comfortable. Our server was friendly and answered all of our questions.
