Tried the Bistro for the first time while passing thru, LOVED this place! Amazing service (Katelyn?) and the food was delicious! We will definitely refer friends & family to this place if they are traveling thru. Thank you for having such a great establishment.

Had the calamari special appetizer. My only complaint is that it needs to be one the menu full time. This was the best calamari I have had in a long time. Odd to say that for a place in the middle of Montana.

The entire experience at the 2nd Street Bistro is always excellent. The food, the servers, the bartenders. I have never had a bad experience here in all the years I have been coming here for dinner or appetizers. The food is beautifully delivered, tastes wonderful, water glasses are always full, the servers never hover but always appear when appropriate. The... More

Went to Livingston to hold new baby and afterwards went to dinner. Wanted to do something other than Rib place. Went to Ricks on Main and found out it was closed for good. Went around the corner to the Bistro. It opened at 5:00 and found that we needed reservations. They could fit us in at 7:00 or we could... More

Tonight I had a lovely Cesear salad. The salad dressing was crisp and clean. The scallops were very well done. The rice dish beneath the scallops was delicious but it was not Isotto. The service was impecible.

Staying at the hotel and tired from long day of travel. Decided to go there and get a pizza because it was close. Big surprise - it was a special pasta night...5 choices of pasta. Delicious. We loved them all. Great wine, atmosphere, friendly staff.

First visit to Livingston and wanted a special treat ... And that is what we got. Our server, Jim, did an outstanding job! The city had a snow storm blowing, so they were not very busy, but a steady stream of customers told us that the local die hards wouldn't miss it. The special was wonderful ... Great presentation and... More

We live here and eat at the Bistro often because it is where out of town guests want to go. It is very busy during the summer months with tourists and you need to make reservations. Avoid the seating area in back of the bar next to the bathrooms unless you enjoy seeing a steady stream of "guests". The food... More

This little gem is just what we needed to find in Livingston. We were there at the end of September and although we didn't have a reservation, and the fact that they seemed to be having some sort of private party in the back, our service couldn't have been better. I had the seafood stew and it was the best... More

We were out to what we thought would be a lovely dinner after a week long visit to the area. We had reservations for 7:15 and arrived promptly. We were made to wait for 10 minutes even though tables were open and the table we were shown to had been empty. We then ordered cocktails- 2 bottles of wine and... More
