Is this the most over rated restaurant in Boise? I would say yes, it is. Mother's Day brunch is perhaps not the best test of "fine dining", but it certainly can provide insight. How about tubs of about 5 gallons of watery scrambled eggs with minute quantities of chopped vegetables? How about that celebrated bacon? Did the chef mean for it to be so crisp that it snapped like a dried out twig in the desert? JBs has a better choice of fruits and salad.

Why does the web site state the cost of the brunch on Mother's Day as $21, but the charge is actually $25?

The downtown courtyard setting is very pleasant. The staff is well trained and friendly. The drinks are weak weak, weak. Berryhill's is living on past glory. Stick a fork in it.

There are very good brunch options in Boise. There is a superb option in Nampa that starts with the letter B. Look it up.

Overpriced and overcooked. For someone who has carved out such a big downtown footprint, I don't expect Berryhill, Bacon or Plan B to stay around for more than a couple of years. I don't know Berryhill personally but he is doing it ALL wrong. Food is about quality, not flashy bullshit furniture. I haven't met a real chef in Boise, and this place is no exception, the food doesn't even compare to what I can make in my own home. Why do places like this always pop up in Boise and then fail? EGO! The food at Berryhill is bland and unimaginative, he may as well go smoke a cigar while his employees serve up mediocrity.

I wouldnt even give this restaurant one star. The person that runs the place is awful to his employees! I refuse to support someone who treats their employees badly no matter what the food is like. As a guest I should never have to see a boss/owner reprimand an employee.
If you dont have any reguard to that the food is great and the place is kept in top shape, generally nice atmosphere as long as you dont catch Mr. Berryhill on a rampage with his employees.

He's been treating his employees like that for years (no, I never worked for him, but as one of his vendors I witnessed some pretty nasty episodes). He also has quite the reputation amongst restaurant workers in Boise.

Suffice to say that if you're writing him a check for a catering job or paying for a meal at his establishment he's the nicest guy in the world. Behind the scenes, however, he's a absolute jerk.

I have been in there multiple times and seen John Berryhill treating his staff poorly. I have witnessed him belittling staff members while I am at the bar trying to enjoy my cocktail. Do people not think they know who John Berryhill is? Just because you own a what you think is a decent restaurant in Boise does not mean you should treat your staff like garbage. I won't be back and I will tell my friends and family to not support your establishment. No one wants to hear that crap. Get a grip Mr. Berryhill. Your actions are FOOLISH in your own establishment. You should be embarrassed!

New Year's Eve saw a capacity crowd, but everything moved smoothly and the buffet was always fresh... even after 10:00p.m. Everything was delicious... from cocktails to dessert and each morsel in between! Our first time there... and we'll definitely be back.

Most people go to BerryHill for a 'fine dining' experience, but if you haven't done so already, do yourself a favor and try a side of their spicy french fries. They are perfectly done every time and have a nice 'kick' to them. Ask the waiter for 'side of fries' only $2.00!!!!

Forget the bad reviews here. We all have different sides to our temperament and chefs are known to be passionate, expressive people. The food is incredible, the staff attentive, kind, and knowledgeable, and the ambiance elegant, yet comfortable. I adore Berryhill and try my best to support local restaurants, especially the few fine dining options we have. Kudos to John Berryhill and his staff for keeping business going during these hard times. Every restaurant and small business has stress behind the scenes (admittedly, where it belongs). Try the halibut and chocolate mousse! To die for. And the Sunday buffet brunch is an incredible deal. Talk with Shaurie at the bar about wine pairings. Listen to great piano music live. Relax on the patio. I could go on and on. Love this place!

Finally had a chance to try Berryhill and Co for an early Valentines dinner with my wife. Made our reservation through Open Table for 8:15pm on February 12. Once seated, our server brought out the menus and wine list. He later brought out the nightly Specials list just before were to order dinner. We ordered the Salmon Cakes as an appetizer. They arrived before our wine (Cinder Syrah, delicious) and before appetizer plates and serviceware. The Wine Steward seemed surprised the salmon cakes showed up so early. Dinner (Grilled Kobe Chimmichurri and Kurobota Ravioli) was good, but not particularly note worthy. I was very excited to try this restaurant, but was a bit concerned when I started to read some of the online reviews. Might try again.
