Tavern at Bown Crossing
Always consistently great. Lunch or dinner they never disappoint. One of our favorite spots. Thank you
I had my sister with me, from California, and it was so much fun. Our waitress, gosh I wish I remembered her name, she was so fun. She gave us all ideas about what to eat, and how we could get more from the Happy Hour Menu and then the main menu. She was absolutely darling. We had the best time. I couldn't get a table at Barbacoa until later and thought I wanted to take them there, but this place was so much better. Seriously fun food, beautifully plated, delicious, great ambiance. Loved it. This will be our go-to place for our next out-of-towner guests.
Alysa is seriously the best waitress I have ever had ANY WHERE!!! I loved her humor and she never forgot us at our table. Never had to ask one time for water refills. She was absolutely amazing. She made our time at The Tavern even more special.
The food was great, the service attentive! Just a bit loud.
Disappointed to be seated in the sushi side of the Tavern. The vibe is cold and our server was not attentive. Disappointing for the price.
Great ambiance. Can always depend on 6 oz filet to hit the spot. Good place to meet with friends and visit.
Food and service were both great. My only complaint is how tightly packed in the tables are... as a former server myself, I couldn’t imagine working in such a cramped space
Dinner was fantastic! And, I tried a new drink, Pink Pear. Very good. We’ll be back. Thanks for a great evening.
We informed the restaurant before and at arrival that it was wife’s 50th birthday, they didn’t even acknowledge it. My steak was so salty I had to send back, which I never do. A new steak returned after everyone was done eating. Sorry, not a good experience.
It was ok. We’ve been many times but we
Were seated right next to the door even tho we’d made reservations a couple days before. It was just very drafty. Service wasn’t real swift. But they did bring all our entrees together. Food was good.
It took 40 after we ordered to get our food and when we finally got it it was cold. It also was too late to do anything about it because we had an event to get to.
The Kung-pao calamari was amazing!!! Will definitely be back!
The Tavern is always our go to place!!
We picked this because it is close to the airport, and we wanted to have dinner with friends who were catching a flight. Food was good, something on the menu for everyone, from Sushi to Pasta to a killer burger. I would probably give it a 5 except it was extremely noisy with a crowd just back from skiing and talking as if they were still on the slopes. Even though we live out at Middleton, we'll probably be back.
Lovely dinner - only issue - which is out of the Tavern's hands, was very very loud, shouty man at the table next to us - maybe tables need to be spaced a little farther apart - with soundproof partitions - lol
Always great food and excellent service. Best burgers in town.
Service was not rushed. The food was good, although the bruschetta appetizer was a bit unwieldy. The champagne sauce on the scallops was a bit overwhelming, as though the sauce had not cooked long enough to temper the flavor of the alcohol. The steak was properly prepared and delicious and the coconut shrimp appetizer was outstanding!
Best nachos anywhere!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great tavern cut ribeye. Great service. Great atmosphere. Just plain great
We ordered our steak medium. It came medium well. As much as we dine at The Tavern we should have been comped for the meal. Never had this problem before.
Steak was excellent
Food & service were excellent as always. Whenever we visit Boise we come dine here.
Food is always spot on. Sushi is excellent.
Had a great night out. This was our first time checking this place out and will most likely be back soon. Food and drinks were good. Waitress seemed happy, friendly and energetic.
Food was really good. Unfortunately the service was very bad. Service doesn’t line up with the price of the food.
My favorite restaurant ever! Amazing food, service and ambiance!
Took a guest for their first time on a Saturday night. Restaurant was very busy, the bar was very slow at getting our drinks, but food arrived at reasonable time. Food was very good, the salmon was excellent. Also ordered the potatoes au gratin which was a huge portion and the fresh veggies were nicely cooked. We all enjoyed our meals and our friend was impressed.
It’s always amazing at The Tavern
Great location. Salads and steaks are fantastic. mahi-mahi and chicken dishes not fabulous
Elisa was great, sushi has been amazing lately. Good people at the Tav.
The Tavern is one of our favorite spots in Boise. We will be back.
Your menu is okay but 2 pages of sushi? The other most offered option is beef which is okay some of the time. Was glad to see your special was fish that night. Need to offer more options like that. And your prices are high I think mostly because of the neighborhood. Can get same type of menu just as good for far less at other places. Your wine pours are pretty small for the price. service was very good. why I needed a reservation at 4 pm was beyond me.
Excellent American cuisine with Idaho flavor. Restaurant is an active community supporter and member of local Chamber of Commerce, always a positive.
Lots of good food choices and very flavorful.
Nice place for get together or dinner - wife variety of food options !
I went here in Summer time. Patio nice, food good, service slow. Nice location.
Great service from the staff. Good wine selection and the food is prepared exactly as ordered. A real neighborhood tavern feel to the place; it seems like you can start up a chat at anytime.
The angel hair pasta with the lemon tarragon sauce and lobster tail was amazing!!! My mouth still waters just thinking about it!
Good food with generous reasonably priced offerings. Not a quiet cozy nook but not overly noisy either. Prompt friendly service by an attentive server who got the order correct and refilled drinks without us asking. It is all the way across town from our home but we will be back.
Service was great! I really need to sit in a low booth and the hostess was very accommodating. I have conditions that call for me to need low, comfortable seating, I am not just being picky. My husband and I eat brunch at the Tavern frequently and there have been times when I have been forced to sit at a high table even when we had a reservation and I asked for a booth. But this last time, they accommodated us - thankfully as we love coming there!
