Great experience

My friend and I are both gluten free so when we searched for a place to eat in Missoula that had a gluten free menu The Silk road popped up. We did not know what to expect and we were pleasantly surprised. It was a beautiful night so we chose to eat at the sidewalk tables. I have no idea... read more

Silk Road was recommended to us by another traveler. But we really didn't know what to expect when we arrived beyond small plates with fare from various cuisines. We were seated right away and the wait staff were courteous and very informative. We ended up ordering the Date & Orange Salad, Mushroom Sautee, Togarashi Skewers and the Shrimp Scampi. This...

Be sure you know what to expect - a variety of very small plates that change seasonally. If you want a large steak, this isn't the place for you.

The variety of foods from which to choose is amazing. ANYONE could find something on the menu that they would love. And, for people like me, you can find endless choices I love. The wine flights are an additional treat.

The Silk Road is my favorite restaurant in Missoula. The atmosphere is great, and the food is always delicious. The great thing about small plates is that you can experiment and try new things..and if a dish disappoints, just move on to the next one! They use fresh ingredients, and are always incorporating new flavors. Love it! Sometimes the service... More

We like the tapas menu and try to go to the Silk Road when in Missoula. There is a large variety. However, on this last visit, the dishes were not as tasty as we remembered. The air conditioning really hammered us with cold air when we sat down. However, the staff happily turned it down for us.

Versatile menu but food portions very small and average. If you've traveled and had food from other countries you'll notice the difference.

While in Missoula for work, a group of us had dinner here after our trade show. We had 7 people, and this was perfect since the dishes are meant to be shared - mostly small plates in a "tapas" style presentation. We ordered round after round of many different dishes, but our favorite was probably the beef skewers. Our server... More

We had a good dinner last night. The seasoning and the creativity of the menu was exceptional. The only negative was the price. A couple with very small appetites might get away with a $45 dinner. If your'e hungry, you had better plan on paying $60 - $80 for dinner. Add a bottle of wine and you'll be pushing $100.

The menu is eclectic. The seasoning on the food was excellent but the addition of 'American' food was out of place. Scallops in Montana in February? Not good. Will be trying again and just being more specific with choices.
