    The dueling piano entertainment was ok but it seemed as if some of the guests were annoyed that it was going on. My salad was yummy but could’ve used more than 2 bites of chicken on it

    Food, service, and drinks were great. I was super disappointed that we couldn't bowl. Due to the hour and a half for $60 and we only had 40 min and it couldn't be prorated.

    Our server was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. He was pretty busy though. Our appetizers came out before our cocktails and they didn’t bring us small plates for sharing so it made quite a mess. I found it odd that other servers and server assistants walked by the table many times without making eye contact or checking in with us as there were only two other tables in the room.

    It was not our server's fault, however, overall, the experience was terrible! Our guests of honor were not able to be served a meal. About an hour after ordering a pizza my to guess of honor, part of a table of 10 were told it would be right out. Then about 10 minutes later they were told, "we are sorry but we can't make any more pizzas tonight." By that time all of the rest of us were almost done with our dinners. Our guests of honor left to go eat someplace else! It also ruined the experience because we were going to stay and play some games and do some team building. But that made it impossible when the people you are there for...leave! To top it all off we apparently overstayed after waiting forever for a pizza that didn't come and the manager came to our table and asked us if we could leave that table because they needed it. To be fair he did offer to reseat us at a smaller table so that we could continue to talk. And they did comp some drinks, but the damage was already done. We have gone to this restaurant for some work events in the past, but that will never happen again.

    Went for the Bloody Best meal-in-a-glass drinks and squeezed in some other delicious food as well--LA Bowl was SO good! We enjoyed sitting outside. Servers were helpful and efficient, our coffee and waters were refilled promptly. And were the Bloody Marys the best? Our party of five thought so. Couldn't be happier!

    Delicious food. We tried the burrata which had a delicious twist with spice to it! The steak frites were excellent, the fish tacos were light and very fresh with excellent flavor. The pizza was good too. Would definitely try again! It is quite loud so not a place for a quiet evening. Fun overall!

    Western Proper was great for a quick dinner while downtown in Boise. We would have appreciated a slightly more extensive menu, as well as the music turned down a little. I felt like I had to yell to talk and had a hard time hearing my date and the server.

    First time coming to western proper. Our waitresses gave us more time to look over the menu. We waited a bit for them to come back but a nice gentleman took over and grabbed our order. He was very kind. We enjoyed many items off the menu. Garlic shrimp and ciabatta bread, truffle fries, steak frites, marghertia pizza and the cowboy burger. Everyone at the table enjoyed each time of these items. Wasn’t a fan of peeling my shrimp but once the shell was off the shrimp was amazing. Ciabatta bread was toasted perfectly and dipping it in the shrimp sauce was delicious. Would definitely go back to get food and this time play skeeball.

    We came here for dinner (group of 4). The service was a bit slow at the start, but once we got our first drink order things moved along nicely the rest of the evening. I'm in the food industry and am rarely satisfied with a meal, but I was pleasantly surprised by how good everything was. We ordered multiple appetizers, drinks, 4 different entrees, and dessert - it was all delicious. A couple of things to note - my beer cheese soup came out cold and the skillet cookie was still mostly raw dough, but overall I would still recommend and definitely go back!

    We went here for brunch. I do have to say the service was good and the food came out in a reasonable amount of time. Though there were only 4 occupied tables in the restaurant at the time. The food unfortunately was mediocre at best. The breakfast potatoes were obviously precooked frozen potatoes which were just barely warmed and were still rubbery like you would get in a hotel free breakfast bar. The meat on the dishes was good but the rest was not so great. I wouldn't go back. It is a cool looking place and looks like a great bar for having drinks at night.

    Second time there and love the brunch menu! The food is definitely worth going for! Knowing it was Father's Day, we expected it to be busy and the wait staff to be a bit frazzled. Our waitress was new to the position and really sweet, but needed to be more attentive. Took a few minutes too long to come back for our order and didn't check back but once when we receive our food. Needed hot coffee refill, which we asked a busboy for and I never received mine. Our only other issue was how loud the music was. When the restaurant is filled, it really adds to the noise level and hard to have a conversation. Truthfully, other then the noise level, these issues were very minor and would not affect my decision to return. I'm sure the waitress will improve with time/experience!

    Great place. Had the Shrimp and Grits which were delicious, but the kitchen needs to shell the tails! Having to fish out grit covered shrimp and pull their tail shells off while fingers are slipping definitely made the dish less than amazing.

    Absolutely loved this spot! The ambience and decor just makes you go "wow" the second you walked in. We got sat immediately @ 5:00 on a Sunday. Our server was very friendly and helpful with some questions we had and then when the food came.... oh my gosh. The Burrata & Prosciutto pizza is mouthwatering good !!! A friend had the breakfast pizza which was also just as delicious!! We played rollerball after dinner and had an absolute blast with it. Can't say enough good things about Western Proper and highly recommend to anyone

    My reservation was for Mother’s Day so I expected to be crazy crowded, but it wasn’t. We were not given the drink menus so I had to go swipe one from another table. Waitress seemed new(er) and when she came to take drink orders I mentioned that we didn’t have menu so she gave us time. When we placed order we were told that one of the burgers was out, then one of the pizzas was out (not an ingredient but the whole meal). Mind you that we were given the lunch menu while everyone else was dining off the BRUNCH menu so different meal. The lunch menu just started so HOW are you out of food on Mother’s Day reservations. They have more drink options to chose from than food. Luckily 3 out of 4 guests were satisfied with there meal and two of those were the ones that had to switch order.

    Don’t order the Brisket Benedict. Less meat than a Ham McMuffin. Kitchen was out of hash at 1 pm. Asked for a side of gravy—was even happy to pay for it—but was denied because “they were running low and had to ration it.” This, all on a Boise State Graduation weekend and a day before Mother’s Day. The kitchen manager should find another line of work. Server was horrible, had one speed. Luckily, a sympathetic waiter took over our table while the first one wandered around. Such a shame, the place is cool but the money spent on such a sub-par brunch was a JOKE.
