Went to Richard's (formerly Richard's Cafe Vicino) last night for the second time since they moved into their larger, downtown location. As usual, the food was excellent, the wine list very nice...however, with the larger space came the need to hire more/new staff. I'm not...More

A hidden gem in Boise. Great place for an occasional taste of something different to please your palette. Great selection of wines too. A little pricy but a great experience.

Small restaurant with awesome food. Probably the best in Boise. It's not in the heart of downtown. You have to know about it to go there. Although, I understand they are moving to a new hotel downtown. I hope it doesn't change much. The food...More

Chef Richard really loves to create food that is both pleasing to the pallet and the eye. The restaurant is small which adds to the charm and atmosphere(hope he keeps it that way)makes you feel like you are in an intimate European cafe. Nice wine...More

Always great service and delicious meals that use what is in season. Dessert is always the best part- with great coffee to accompany- this place knows what's up
