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.

Enjoyed a great dinner and excellent service staff. New server in training and she did a great job! Also, handled a couple special requests for our dinners with no difficulties. Will be back.

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!

Seated near entry, after asking for a warm spot,every time the door opened we froze. Good food, fair service,sever seemed rushed. Cost was high for the food and cocktails.
