Good, unique offerings with live music. I like a little more light when I'm eating. Attentive wait staff. Located in downtown Missoula.

Amazing food, wine and service. Wow. I had the Bison Tenderloin. It was plated beautifully and was one of the best meals I have experienced in a long time!

We had high expectations based on what we had heard and read. Once inside, also the atmosphere (a bit too dark the section of the bar, better the restaurant) made us think the culinary experience was going to be memorable. Then the food came, and we were brought back to reality. Nothing special nor terrible. Just no real personality in... More

I've been a long time patron of the Red Bird and it has been my favorite restaurant in Montana since I first visited. I do get around the state and there are several restaurants that come close but none have topped it. I went there last week for my birthday and was more than pleasantly surprised. Hands down it was... More

We visited this restaurant many years ago and were underwhelmed. In view of the rave reviews on this site we decided to give the Red Bird another opportunity. We remain disappointed! The saving graces are the wine list which is extensive and full of interesting and unusual bottles, together with the service. The food remains too clever by half with... More

We had not been back for several years and decided to go for our 25th Wedding anniversary and it was a great meal. I had the fried octopus salad and shrimp cannelloni. After dinner we had a rubard desert with fresh berries. The staff were very friendly and helpful and they allowed us plenty time to eat our dinner. The... More

We splurged for our anniversary and the food was amazing and they always have a vegetarian option. I think the waitress could tell it was a special night because she bought us dessert. The huckleberry sorbet is the most delicious dessert I had had in a long time. I will 100% go back.
