I ordered a Pork Chop and a Moscow Mule. The food and drinks along with the service was excellent and the view from the side of the restaurant that I sat on was great. The meal ended up being pretty pricey, but I would go back again just not too often.

The food was not great. My meal was ok, but a few meals were badly seasoned. Just some odd flavors. Service was kinda slow. Overall good vibe. Out of 5 people in our party only 2 were satisfied with their whole meal and one pushed their plate aside. Compared to other steakhouses in the area, prices were ok, but would have rather spent the money to have a perfect birthday celebration. Just overall disappointing.

This was our third visit to the Tavern. Each time it has been packed with people and we received top notch service and quality food. The sushi was some of the best I have ever had. Very impressed with this place and would highly recommend it. Nice variety of food options. From reasonable burgers to high end steaks and seafood.

Don't eat here. As soon as we were seated the hostess asked when we thought we would be done since they had another reservation. My crab was disgusting, freezer burned and rubbery. I opted not to have another dish. They charged me for the full plate. Manager said the waitress claimed I at it all and he said it was Open Tables fault for their over booking problem. Take my advice and go somewhere else.

We were there for three hours. It took a significant amount of time to get drinks, to have our server come back for an appetizer order, for our food order, and ultimately to obtain our check. We weren’t in a hurry but never dreamt we’d be there that long.

Tavern at Bown Crossing is a steak and sushi place, our go-to for business or special occasions. It’s a little pricey for everyday dining. For example, sushi for two with a couple glasses of wine each is around $100. Food is good. Reservations accepted. Nice rooftop dining with scenic view in summer only.

Service truly out did the food meat was tough and far from hot, cheese tray is very over priced,
Au gratin potatoes not very good seemed to me they came out of a Food Service of America pre package container. I sure have had better meals.

Have celebrated two family occasions here when I come to Boise from New York. Every bit as delicuIous as the best of restaurants in the Big Apple! Although the lamb chops were a bit skimpy for my man-size son-in-law. Friendly service and amazing drink prices!

It might seem strange to have a sushi menu and a steakhouse menu on the same menu, but it works.

I love the atmosphere and the food is excellent, usually.

I have an allergy to shrimp and stated this in my on line reservation . I reminded the waitress about the allergy and when I order the salmon corn chowder asked if it was shell fish base.. .she said no.. I took a bite and she raced back to tell me it was. YIKES !!... Coffee took care of it... but someone who is much more allergic than I am would have been in bad shape. My suggestions is double and triple check if you have a food allergy, Otherwise beautiful place and lovely food.

Unfortunately they did not have the mussels appetizer. So I ordered the halibut special instead and when I got my check learned it was $40! I emailed the restaurant afterwards and they did not respond.

Unfortunately after waiting about 20 minutes for our meal, our waiter informed us that my steak had been dropped on the floor so had a longer wait and the steak was overdone when it came. We were offered a complimentary dessert which we accepted. It was a great berry cobbler. We usually have excellent meat when we go there and will go back again. It was our 33rd wedding anniversary so we were celebrating by having dinner there.

The food was terrific but the hostess didn't want to seat us because we didn't have a reservation. She said there was no seating for an hour and a half. We promptly looked at open table, and made a reservation for 5 minutes later. She didn't know what to say. Our server was terrible.He was inattentive and never came back to check on us. Our water glasses were bone dry. There really wasn't much of an opportunity to even get his attention without yelling for him. The food was the star. Great sashimi, appetizers and entrees.

Not impressed with the sushi at all. Took forever for us to get it and then the avocado in the rolls were hard rice was hard crab was rubby and dry. Waitress was so infriendly and not personable and never even smiled. You could tell she really hated her job! Won't come back and for sure won't refer it to anyone.
