A delightful place for lunch. Located in picturesque Cooke City, MT just outside Yellowstone Nat'l Park. We enjoyed a nice lunch while admiring the previous night's 4 inch snowfall on rooftops. I particularly appreciated the service after cleaning up the half glass of wine I had spilled, along with the broken glass, I was presented with a full glass !... More

Best pancakes I have ever had! Service can be slow if they are busy. Small grill and sometimes understaffed. Never tried dinner. Have friends who love it and others who think it is overpriced.

Surprised at the excellent food and beverages offered here. We were quite hungry after spending long days watching critters and the mountains. Feel free to order everything from the menu since everything is great!

Breakfast was very nice with a roaring fire warming us on a cold morning. Staff was attentive. Prices seemed a bit high for the area.

We know we were a long way down the supply chain being in Cooke City, but the meals were priced on the high side for what there was. The pork chop was juicy, tender and flavorful. The fettucini Alfredo was very good and a generous serving. No garlic bread or dinner roll. The waitress was having a bad night, so... More

We have eaten here several time before and the dinner twice during our most recent trip. The service was good on both evenings. The menu had a good selection and a good wine list. For the first dinner, I had a pasta dish and my wife had the chicken. Both were very good and they were served with a very... More

The Bistro had a nice breakfast with somewhat slowish service, probably due a sudden influx of customers. We seemed to arrive with a crowd. Still, some very good food.

This little place was very overpriced and our meal was just ok. Our waitress was very sweet, though.

It was our first stop for lunch after driving all morning...we were the only customers in the place. The waitress was on the phone, sat us, then went back to her call for about 10 minutes....then a local walked in and they proceeded to talk about getting drunk the night before.....so we left.

I never expected to have shrimp and scallop fettuccine in the middle of the wilderness that was as fresh and well prepared as in any coastal large city. And service was as good as my dinner, A most welcome surprise.
