    Declining restaurant. Do your due diligence- we wish we had. We do not leave reviews often unless they are positive, but this was so BAD it was almost comical. This is NOT the same place the prior reviews suggest. The red-flags are out there in a google search. Our story is not too different from other reviews we have found online and we will not repeat many of those same complaints. This is not a special destination anymore. As for the food, the appetizer, it was fine. The entrees were unfortunately a mess and not worth the money. My wife’s pasta dish was poorly executed and was essentially curled cheese and pasta noodles. My chicken dish was VERY undercooked and I sent it back. While trying to stretch out the time, we eventually finished my wife’s dish before my replacement chicken came out so we asked for it to-go seeking to cut our losses after many failures. However, we found that this replacement dish was also VERY undercooked. Also do not rely on the wine list. 5 wines on the list were not available. While supply issues understandably exist, the staff was set up to fail. Beyond identifying red or white and matching vintage years, the staff did not know anything about wine or what to look for in the back- this is not hyperbole! Moreover, the staff didn’t have prices for the substitute wines that were available. We were not alone in this. I was literally asked what I thought was a reasonable markup on a bottle of wine I physically had to pick off of their inventory shelves after attempts to pick a bottle off the menu. Admittedly, the foregoing does not do justice to our poor experience. Simply put, however, it was severely disappointing, especially as this was our 20th anniversary dinner (which was noted in our reservation). We have recently learned that the head chef quit, and there are ongoing pay disputes brought by former employees. IT SHOWS!!!! I can’t recommend this to anyone seeking to celebrate something special. Do your homework.

    Food was mediocre at best, lots of congealed cheese and several dishes had very watery sauce.

    The restaurant is nice, it’s an old restored home in Hyde Park area of Boise. We tried a few different appetizers. They were all delicious. There were five of us and we all tried something. A little different and we were all impressed with the quality and taste of the meals. The only negative is it was a hot day and it was pretty hot and stuffy inside, in the future during the summer will book a table outside.

    We came here a year ago and it was amazing. We just visited and the food was terrible, I will never come back until everyone in the kitchen is fired.

    Ariel is a very competent and humble server. She provided personal attention to all the guests as the sole server for the restaurant. This was her 5th day at Apericena. We always enjoy dining at Apericena.

    The food was not good. The pasta was not cooked, and the noodles were all stuck together in one clump. The scallops were bad. I also ordered steak which had zero seasoning and looked microwaved. The staff was friendly but the food was not good. I was very surprised at the food quality and will not be back.

    First time experience with my partner was really exciting! I chose this restaurant at random and we both went into it blind and it was quite a fun experience! It's a nice smaller place perfect for parties of 2! It is relatively close quarters so if that makes you nervous be advised!

    Food was just ok; certainly not worth the prices. Starter salad was excellent. Mushroom appetizer was mostly just a bowl of cheese. Cioppino--some of the seafood had the ammonia smell, but some of it was very good. Lamb bolognese--good flavor, runny sauce--more of a broth. Service: Had to ask for silverware twice. Table cloth was dirty upon arrival. Bottle of wine was opened somewhere else before being brought to table. The table we were first seated at (outside) was one-of-a-kind in the restaurant. It would have been lovely for drinks, but for us at least, impossible to eat a dinner at it--the table was below knee level, so would have had to hold our plates to eat. The host seemed surprised we didn't think we could eat entrees there, so maybe she envisioned us having a sandwich vs. cioppino. :) Just seemed odd for upscale dining.
