Cottonwood Grille
913 W. River Street, Boise, ID, 83702 208-333-9800

Cheryl Rawden - Idahoeats contributing writer

After nearly a decade serving downtown Boise patrons the Cottonwood Grille continues to serve fine food in a truly exceptional riverfront setting. Located just steps away from the Boise Library and Boise Art Museum, at 913 W. River Street, come and witness what makes this competitively priced, spotless restaurant stand out on its own. The Basque homeland is depicted in the artwork of peasants and sheep. Some of the décor changes with the seasons such as the cornucopias fashioned from dough displayed during Thanksgiving week.

For unique salads there are such delights as Warm Duck Breast Salad ($10.95) or Crispy Calamari Salad ($9.95). The Buffalo Burger ($10.95), Warm Pastrami Melt ($8.95) or Grilled Prime New York Strip ($15.95) would satisfy any meat lover. If their extensive menu with inspiring descriptions doesn’t leave you in a quandary over your final selection, nothing will!

Entrees come with a crisp salad of julienned carrots, colored peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes and a medley of lettuce on a chilled plate. The creamy blue cheese dressing with large chunks of blue cheese floating along the top was heaven, and the house vinaigrette was equally as enjoyable. A complimentary basket of delicious bread was an added bonus and a great way to start an enjoyable meal.

Crab and Salmon Cakes ($12.95) consist of fresh Dungeness crab and salmon mixed with shallots served in a small pool of a lemony butter sauce. While heavy on the salmon and not much crab, they were nicely cooked with a crispy outer coating. Don’t let the description of Pernod used in the entrée deter you. The anise flavor was not at all noticeable. The accompanying rice pilaf was decent and the green beans were crisp and crunchy, the way green beans should be! The Classic Elk Meatloaf ($10.95) is not your average meatloaf. We would have preferred a softer consistency like ordinary meatloaf has but the creamy mushroom sauce was absolutely amazing. The garlic mashed potatoes and green beans were both a nice compliment to the meatloaf.

The huge dessert menu is absolutely delectable sounding. Dwayne, the pastry chef, is known for creating all kinds of special treats from Cream Brulee to a German Chocolate Cake.
