Asiago's Ratings and Reviews
Ambiance was great. A lovely intimate restaurant. Many menu choice are somewhat spicy. The food was good, but I was looking for a more traditional Italian menu and somewhat surprised to see Italian/ Thai, Italian/ Creole fusion creations. I had the scallops and felt the creole spice overwhelmed the delicate scallops, though the lime risotto was a great compliment. My husband had the lasagne which was excellent. Nice wine choices. Service was excellent and efficient.
The restaurant was extremely busy and appeared understaffed. We waited 20 minutes for our reservation even though tables opened; there were not enough people to clear and set them.
Once we were seated (after being told a table we preferred was "already spoken for"), our server did come over right away to say hello. But when she didn't come back within 10 minutes we left, assuming it would take longer than we were willing to (continue to) wait to get drinks and food.
Everyone at Asiago's was hustling, but there just weren't enough folks working. With so many good dining choices in downtown Boise, there's no need to wait and wait and wait to eat at Asiago's. We went to Owyhee Tavern and had a nice - and fairly expeditious - meal instead.
My husband and I took our moms and dads to the Mother's Day Brunch, and it was fabulous! Usually there are one or two items at a buffet that good and the rest is so-so. But, everything we had was absolutely delicious!....even my finicky father-in-law gave rave reviews. Well done!
It was a very busy evening and they were running behind on reservations getting seated. When we explained we had an event to be at in 45 minutes they made room for us at the bar. The bartender put a rush on our food and we were out in time to make our event. The service was fantastic, friendly, and exceeded our expectations.
Love asiagos, always great services, usually great food. We come here often and I'm not sure what happened Saturday night but all 3 of us were not loving our meals. There were a few bigger groups? So maybe that's why? But I was so happy to bring my mom and sister and raved about how delicious the food is and we were all bummed. Not bad but definatly not my usual experience.
We love this locally owned restaurant. The food and service is always good, and they have been so consistent over the years. Penny was our server, and was attentive but not bothersome. We had the new salmon cakes for an appetizer which were really good! They are almost bite-sized and served on some slivered veggies and apple, I think. Also, the brussels sprout salad is a great spring salad choice. It's not overly strong on brussels sprouts which I was pleased to discover the first time I tried it. Would like it even better with TWO rounds of crusted goat cheese! For an entree I had the sea bass special. It was served blackened. The fish was moist and tasty, but the risotto that it was served on was almost the highlight of the dish. So very creamy with a tang of lemon. The fish included some sauteed veggies. My accompanying beverage was the Tamarack Cellars Rose, a dry rose which paired well with the appetizers and my sea bass. For dessert I had a gelato and sorbeto, I think. I got a scoop of the chocolate and the watermelon-kiwi. The chocolate is so rich-tasting and yet not real sweet. The perfect end to another great Asiago meal.
It's took an incredibly long time for our food to arrive. The waiter was really personable but other than finally apologize and say there were two large groups ahead of us (who weren't there when we arrived!)when our food did arrive, he did not check in or give us updates or any explanation along the way. Also, don't expect this minestrone to be brothy - it's a thicker tomato pastey version with pasta in it - not a good low calorie choice.
The service and the meal were good. I ordered the beef filet medium rare and it came
very well done. I pointed this out and the waiter noted that they had a different chef
that night, with no apologies or replacement offered. My meal was $23 and the portion
was very small. If it weren't for the generous bread on the table I would have left hungry.
Met a friend for dinner before going to BCT. We let our server know that we needed to be at the theater by 7:45. She was very attentive to our schedule and very efficient in serving our meal. Food was excellent. Was especially impressed with house salad - spring mix was very fresh and dressing was so delicious. Portions were very pleasing (just right, not too large). Always love eating pasta at Asiago's - so many choices and so yummy. We splurged and had creme brulee for dessert - It was divine! I consider going to Asiago's a special treat - elegant but not stuffy, comfortable, wonderful service and excellent food!
The only down fall of my experience came from a very rude patron. He was loudly telling the waitress how horrible she served him. This was not the case for us and I don't understand how he could feel that way. The same waitress came over to check on us and we mentioned her interaction with the other customer. She responded with a very professional comment and we went along to have a great evening.
Restaurant was nearly empty. They sat us adjacent to a large party and against the wall. We made reservations a week in advance and there were open seats near the window.
Food is amazing, wait staff is amazing. I feel like we've been hosed by the front hostess staff a few times now.
Am happy to chat and discuss more, would like to see Asiagos improve!
I would have given 5 stars across the board if the service were a little faster. We were there almost an hour and a half for lunch. Luckily, were we entertaining a client and time was not an issue. But, if I were there on my lunch hour I would have had to take my meal to go. We waited a very long time just to get our drinks. On the upside. The atmosphere, prices and food are always amazing.
Went as a birthday dinner for my wife. We enjoyed our server and her attention to our dinner was excellent. Three of the four meals were quite good, but the Lasagna was not good. I have always ordered Lasagna when I go to Asiago's and this batch was not up to par. Very bland and pasty. Tasted like a supermarket frozen lasagna meal.
We hadn't eaten at Asiago for a few years and dined there again recently. They used to have two locations, one in our neighborhood which closed down and this made our visits less common. After eating there again I'm sorry we have stayed away for so long. We had a wonderful seasonal lasagne and special salad with pears, arugula and roasted tomatoes. Service was pleasant and I was able to find Italian wines by the glass that were unusual and wonderful.
Asiago's was extremely delicious. Their bread was amazing! I had a half sized salad which was really good greens, but way too big for a half-sized salad. It was piled SO high, that I felt bad wasting all of it and barely had room for my entree. Very good service and great wine selection.
Visited for Easter and a buffet brunch was served. The best items were the bacon and eggs while the rest of the food was inconsistent with some items over seasoned while others were bland. Crime brûlée French toast was burned on the bottom. Really felt ripped off when I could have had equally good bacon and eggs at IHOP and a much lower bill.
We went for Easter brunch with a reservation at 10:15am. They opened at 10am and yet, most of the food was still not ready. So we had coffee while we waited. Our server was very attentive and nice. But even with the food coming out, most of it was lukewarm or cold. Turkey and bacon were great. Trip tip was barely room temp as well as biscuits and gravy. I would go back for regular dinner but definitely not for brunch buffet.
Food was excellent, love the homemade pastas selection. Also the brussel sprout & beet salad was delicious. I asked for no onions on my pasta and that request was not met, but I could easily pick them off. The main course (pastas) took over an hour to be delivered to our table so good thing the salads held us over til then. Also we were placed next to the main walk way so that wasn't ideal.
