Our poor service started as soon as our waiter (lets call him Chris) appeared. He took my order for a glass of wine and darted off without asking what my husband wanted to drink. Next my husband asked for the french onion soup but to leave off the cheese (he is allergic). Clearly our waiter had paid no attention whatsoever... More

It's pretty obvious that many of the patrons here are regulars--they all seem to know one another. And they mostly are all 30ish to 40ish, and just having a really good time. My wife and I were visiting our 40ish year old kids who suggested John Bozeman's, and so for us, the place was loud and happy. The food was... More

Took the wife and a friend for a birthday Sunday brunch. At10:30 AM the place wasn't full and service was prompt and courteous. The Brunch menu isn't bad. Everyone had one of their specialty omelets and enjoyed them immensely. My ham and "Fontina" cheese omelet with asparagus and artichoke hearts was a real treat and nicely presented. Overall, the meal... More

Took family out here as suggested by my brother, who had good things to say when under former owners in another location. Restaurant is very open with good lighting. Staff was very attentive even with party ordering only water with entrées. Broad menu choices offered prices starting from about $15. All were pleased with portions and choices. We understood the...

Wasn't impressed with the Bistro until last night when we went with a big group. The food was good, the service was good, it wasn't to loud and the server told us about some Happy Hour specials which we got and left us feeling taken care of. I will defiantly be back sonnet than the last time. So the Bistro... More

Friday night at 7:00 and the height of the dining hour. We had tried a couple of other places and were greeted with lengthy wait lists. We breezed in to the John Bozeman Bistro expecting another wait. Bruce met us at the host station with the dreaded question " do you have a reservation?". "No, we just got in to... More

Had a lovely dinner here with my husband while on a business trip to Bozeman. This place was recommended by friends and we were glad we made the effort to eat here. I had the fish and my husband had the shrimp - great presentation and attentive service. Wish I had room for dessert because I saw some go by... More

Had a lunch here. Had french onion soup, salad and a french dip sandwich. I couldn't believe how fresh they were. French onion soup really tasted like onion, not water downed at all. Lettuce was super fresh and crispy. Meat very tender and tasty. I don't know if they have their own farm or not but all the ingredients were... More

Visited this restaurant as I had a great meal here on a previous visit several years ago. Not so impressed this time. I had a steak which was well cooked but lacked flavour. The local beer was good.

We look forward to our dinners here. Food is fresh, just a bit different, but, not the extreme. I don't drink so I can't help you with the wine/beer choices. Service has always been friendly and efficient. This dinner was my favorite. Lamb lollipops with a balsamic glaze. Creamy white polenta, wilted spinach atop and a poached egg atop of... More
