We have previously eaten here and reviewed this restaurant. It was great the previous visits and still awesome. Great menu, good wines and wait staff. Just one update, try the mac and cheese. It is not your Kraft or even your mother’s mac and cheese; it is out of this world. Great place.

I enjoy Over the Tapas for a fun night out or special occasion. There is a wide variety of small plates to choose from of varying price points. The restaurant is fairly small giving it an intimate feel. The food, wine, and service are excellent. What's not to love?

The specials were superb and we wanted to try everything on the menu. The local draft beers were great. Service was excellent. It was so good we went back the very next day for lunch again. Unfortunately they were closed for the holdiays with no note on the door to indicate it.

Innovative chef uses fresh, local ingredients whenever possible to create fabulous "small plates". Expect to order several items to share & for the bill to be a bit high. Intimate space, classy ambiance, worthy of a special date.

I have been here many times over the years and have never been disappointed. Favorites are the Goat Cheese Croquettes, Duck Confit Crepes, Bacon Wrapped Dates, Pork Belly Tacos. Good draught beer and wine selection. Perfect for couples, friends, and family dinners

I have visited both with a business lunch and on a romantic evening and both times had unique gourmet fare that is hard to find in this town! The bacon-wrapped dates are only 5$ and are addictive. The roasted vegetable soup was thick, smoky, and fresh! Their salads are wonderful. Order several things and share with friends.

Such a fun little restaurant. It is very small inside, but the atmosphere is pretty casual and the wait staff were so nice. The menu is diverse and we had fun trying a little bit of everything. Everything was served promptly and the value is pretty good for what you get.

We LOVE coming here. The food is always innovative and chosen by what is fresh and in season. Now they are using home farm grown veggies, herbs and meats from their own farm & gardens. I had the seasonal daily soup which was a Curry Carrot and ginger soup. Lovely. My husband had the Pear salad, a poached pear with... More

By far the best soup in Bozeman! Today they had a New England Clam Chowder- better than any chowder you'll find in New England for sure! Last time they had a butternut squash bisque- also delicious and perfect for fall. I highly recommend both!

Stumbled upon this great restaurant. They have a diverse menu and extremely good food. I know it is a strange thing to point out, but having eaten plantains all around the world this place has hands down, the best I have ever eaten. The service was friendly and prompt. Everything we had was wonderful, some standouts were the Patatas Arrugadas,... More
