A Special Place for a Special Meal

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... read 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.

I went here for my birthday with my sister and my son. We sat in the lovely fine dining area. The service was top drawer and the food and wine were even better. I didn't want to leave. I look forward to going back.

We went to have a special dinner and live in the area. Bar area was very busy so we ate in dining room. Always very good service. Place was not real busy. Food was very good and we enjoyed the evening. Don't go if you are going to worry about the cost. Just enjoy..

Went here for my anniversary it was absolutely delightful. Make sure to make a reservation it can get crowed unexpectedly. They have fine French cuisine. You can sit and talk for a while and taste the fairs. They have a restaurant in the back for a longer sit down and a more casual dinning experience in the front. They have... More

I hadn't been to the Red Bird since my son graduated from college 7 years ago and I was pleasantly surprised how delicious the meal was. There were three of us and we shared salads, shrimp cakes another main course and a desert. Everything was wonderful, especially the shrimp cakes! I would highly recommend this as a special night out... More

My meal here was fantastic. People who order pasta, salad, or something of the ilk. I get it -- you are at a fancy restaurant everything should be good. But please remember you are in Montana. Order a cut of meat and it will be amazing. Would I go to seafood restaurant in Baltimore and order pork chops? No. You... More

The food is extremely well played. The fondue is somewhat grainy and sour but the accompanying elements of bread, meat and pairs were outstanding. The meat and cheese appetizer is very nice. The wine selection was outstanding with generous pours. The music is not too loud and the atmosphere is cozy and sophisticated.
