This was our 4th visit to the Red Bird. They never disappoint, even over a 10 year + timeframe. The food is freshly locally sourced and imaginatively prepared. The service is excellent. We plan a trip from Seattle to go there - quite a drive! The wine list is excellent too. They do not have a liquor license. The bar... More

It's not a regular for us, but probably should be. It's a great room in the old art deco hotel and the food is way above average, and the wine list is good and fairly priced. The last trip I had there the supper was a 9.5 and there are no 10s.

I would have previously put The Red Bird wine bar as a top restaurant in Missoula. But we just went this last week and the prices had gone up 30%. Whereas it was a great place for great food, I don't think the prices match the quality any more.

I just went to dinner with two girlfriends on Thursday and the wine bar was great! It was super casual but still upscale. We ate the scallops, pork chop, lettuce wraps and the hamburger. The hamburger was outstanding but the lettuce wraps were a close second! The wine list was great and they also had beer, but no liquor so... More

We were looking for a very light dinner after having spent the afternoon at the local hospital. This worked out perfectly! Both my husband and I just ordered a salad. I had a glass of wine and he had a beer. The hostess brought me two glasses of wine so I could choose what I liked since I was unfamiliar... More

This is the second great visit! Love this place, love the scene. Opt for the bar area rather than the "too bright" dining room. I always the small plates, and seriously everything good. In another wise uninteresting restaurant town, this is a great find!
