Look for the special when you walk in. The special we had was 1/2 Rotifera chicken with seafood paella. It was good and significantly less money than other menu items.

Leaky Ona Restaurant and Bar is located in the Basque blocks of Boise. They have an excellent bar and even better food. The seafood bisque was the best we have ever tasted. The lamb sandwich is another must try item. The lamb, piled on a hard French roll, is very tender, with a mild garlic-ally flavor. The chorizo sausage dish... More

This place is pretty darn good. Luckily the chef special for the day was a half a chicken with seafood paella. Everything blended well together and I was full and happy when I finished. The plates were also large! So bring your appetite. The only drawback is that you pay for all of this goodness. For someone, who is more... More

We ate upstairs, servers were nice if slow. We tried the Chorizo soup, which was so bland it was a complete pass, and the salad, which was fresh and the dressing tasty. Our main course was the lamb stew, which was mediocre, and the meatballs, which were okay with a tasty wine sauce. The meatballs were good. Didn't care for... More

What a delightful place! We sat at their outside patio, and only passed through the interior, so all I can say about the interior is that the dark wood lent old-world charm to the atmosphere. The outdoor patio allowed us to people-watch and there happened to be a Latino street festival over Labor Day weekend while we were there, so... More

The waitstaff were very nice, but the service was far slower than necessary with the number of patrons inside. The waitstaff also needed to be reminded of things we had requested. Again, so nice, but... The appetizers were the only really good portion of the meal. The entrees were mediocre at best. We won't be back.

Heard about Basque cuisine and Boise and had seen the Diners Drive Ins and Dives about Bar Gernika. Wanted to see if there was a more formal dining experience with Basque food. It says so in the name but unfortunately did not deliver. Don't know if there is an ownership change or if the place is just not up to... More

Twice this year we have returned to a venue that we enjoyed a few years ago. Not again.The food is mediocre and the staff cheerful but inconsistent and confused. Too many great places to dine in Boise to give this one another chance.

First, our waitress was very kind and sweet. We had our mouth set on some good Lamb. But, an hour (hour) into our meal we were served the soup and salads. The waitress came to the table and explained the kitchen was backed up and it would be about thirty minutes longer. We would like to offer an appetizer while... More

Another wonderful example of the thriving Basque culture in Boise! The food is wonderful and the service is always top notch! You can't go wrong with whatever you choose to get here!
