The "Treefort Menu" by far, was our favorite menu! We've been to S&L many times and this was the 1st time we brought guests from out of town. My in-laws were blown away! Thanks for a fantastic meal! Can't wait until next time!

I've been to State and Lemp twice now. It is the best restaurant in Boise, and we are very lucky to have the chefs and owners here in Idaho. They could easily be on their way to a Michelin star or two in a bigger city and bigger venue.

Instead we have a team of highly creative people plugged into the city of Boise, our local farmers, local vintners, and wild forage who are creating complex and captivating meals. Even when I don't particularly like a plate being served I can always respect the attempt and marvel at the amount of effort and creativity put into each one.

So please give this place a shot. Save up and go for a special occasions, enjoy the food, and enjoy the company you get to sit next too, you'll be chatting with your seating partners all night and have a great time.

Overall a wonderful anniversary gift (from our daughter)
Nice wine pairings - they worked.
Quality food presentation & preparation.
Pricey for Idaho - or a regular dinner date out in the town.

Hard wood chairs need padding - for the length of time seated to go through courses.
Some servings quite small to thoroughly taste or enjoy.
Lacks the elbow room within the family style (one long table) seating arrangement - to be intimate for a private conversation.

I don’t know how they do it time after time but the creativity and the way they mix flavors with textures and presentation are second to none. Nowhere in Boise will you get the State and Lemp experience. Any wait you experience will be worth it. Your taste buds will thank you and you won’t want the evening to end.

I'm from Boise but live in Denver. I refuse to come home and NOT go to State and Lemp. Hands down my favorite dining experience and Ive travelled the globe going to Michelin restaurants like Noma, French Laundry - any foodie destination. State and Lemp never disappoints - food is impeccable, interesting, well presented and just damn good. It's art you can eat. Staff is fabulous - there is intention in everything they do. Only complaint I have is that I don't live closer! You are a fool if you pass this restaurant up!!! Just go.

This has become my favorite place for that special occasion. Their attention to detail and personalized service is unmatched in Boise. Not only did they remember it was my birthday, but both myself and my wife’s special dietary needs. Fantastic service and exception food. They continue to impress from a culinary perspective. Always something new, interesting and delicious.

Living in the Bay Area I have had many fantastic dining experiences but State and Lemp is exceptional! Chef Komori and his team in the kitchen pour their heart and talents into creating exciting dishes showcasing the best of the season and products of local farmers. Their food is deliberate and every detail thought out. The experience of dining here is unmatched and such a fun time. Front of the house staff were so friendly and welcoming and every need was attended to and met. I would eat here again and again! Thanks for a memorable evening!

We love State and Lemp! Always inventive and new. The pairings are fun and the experience remains the best in Boise. Saturday evenings can feel a bit rushed. Perhaps because of the supper club seating at 9 pm.

Such an interesting place! Always a 5 course prix fix menu that is unique, beautiful, and, on the basis of this first meal for us, totally delicious. Probably not for the finicky or non-adventurous eater, but a joy for those who wish to explore innovative, fine cuisine.

Food was good. Menu tried a little too hard for the exotic and multiple flavors in every dish. Could have used one or two knockout protein dishes as part of multiple courses. Wine pairing was excellent. Service great. Ambiance nice but very noisy.

A must try - our fourth visit - never disappointed! It's like eating with an artist - a genuine food artist. A Michelangelo of food! We no longer ask what the menu will be. We just go and thoroughly enjoy each and every course - all 5 courses with excellent wine pairings . Every course is explained as it is served. All questions answered. Menu changes about every six weeks - note - go to State & Lemp's website to see current menu. Open Table's is not updated. Kris is a most creative and talented chef. Words cannot adequately describe his food and how talented he is and the entire staff is well versed in everything about your meal.

State and Lemp is a very unique and special place. We are fortunate to be able to experience a meal and a restaurant dining experience of this caliber in Boise, ID. It is truly special. The food is outrageous and extremely creative and will take you on a journey into the unknown. Use of local and unique ingredients is an understatement, service is just the right tone with the special touch from Remi and his staff. If you are looking for a James Beard level experience, this is it. They've been in business for 4 years and never repeated a menu, currently serving menu #103
I believe. Thank you S&L.

First time at State and Lemp last Saturday night. I loved the feel of the place, the decorations and the whole concept. However, the food was not that great in my opinion. There was nothing that I tasted that I thought was that amazing. I ate everything that was offered and had no problem with the unique ingredients, but nothing I ate blew me away. I will give it another try sometime and hope this was just an off night before I make a final judgment.

I hope for their sake it was just an off night. We were there for meal 101. We appreciated the art and the attempt to replicate the art thru food. The presentation was attractive, but unfortunately the best tasting part of the meal was the bread and butter! We all felt that the issue was WAY too many competing ingredients in each dish, trying for exotic but falling flat or off putting in the flavor. The wine pairings were good drinks.
