The wait staff was exceptional. Thank you Wade and Jeremiah for a great experience. The scallop appetizer was amazing as was the Ribeye Steak. And the pumpkin white chocolate desert unbelievable.

The food is fantastic and the service even better! My husband and I go to McCall every year to celebrate my birthday and stay in our cabin- we have made getting fancy take away from the Narrows part of our tradition- they have never failed in offering the best tasting steaks I have ever had and Helen and Bart rounded...

Delicious dinner at The Narrows (in a temporary spot while under construction). We had a delicious steak with baked potato and mushrooms along with the corn potato chowder, grilled salmon that came with gnocchi and we're happy with the entire experience. Wait staff was very professional and attentive. Fall evening view was absolutely gorgeous.

The Narrows is expensive, but I was happy to part with the money to watch my friends enjoy their meals. Most noteworthy about the evening was the full attention the chef paid to the vegan among us: we called ahead to notify him, and he put together a really classy, delicious array of ingredients to honor our girl's principles. Everybody... More

Table of 8 in town for a birthday. View was great when you could see it. Lots of people around chatting it up. Could not believe how slow the service was. 2.5 hours to eat. Food was fair tasting but overpriced imho. Missed the temp on 3 of the 5 steaks. Can't see returning.

My wife and I like to go to the Narrows bar next to the dining room. It is always jammed with people having fun and enjoying the view of Payette Lake, one of the most beautiful lakes anywhere. If a table is not open, take a seat at the bar. We like to share the fish and chips that includes... More

Impeccable service, amazing food! First, the fruit & cheese tray came and it was beyond expectations! It was the most flavorful pairings of fruit & cheese I've ever had. Wedge salad was perfect & Filet was melt in your mouth. Martinis were the best I've had in a long time & warm brownie topped off an excellent meal. I've never... More

Excellent food and service. I had the lobster pasta...delicious. My husband enjoyed the pork chop. We tried several of the salads. They have a full bar and a very nice wine list. This is by far the best restaurant we have tried in McCall.

I had been looking forward to trying this restaurant based on previous reviews. Made our reservation on Open Table which was easy enough but in hindsight be sure to request window seating as that would have been more enjoyable. We arrived at opening time since my son and I and I didn't want to be in the middle of romantic... More
