We only popped in here for appys before heading out to Yellowstone under Canvas. The food was fabulous and the service wasn't fast but was great. Nice wine and beer selection and the added bonus of wifi which took the sting out of the wait for us.

Great food-- very small restaurant though they do have some outdoor dining--weather providing. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Interesting menu--not the usual fare we found in some other local restaurants.

My wife and I went here for a date night. The elk tips were incredible and the bison pasta dish was sensational. Our waitress was very sweet and the beer was very cold. Highly recommend. Probably the only place for a "foodie" in west yellowstone.

The food was just ok and quite pricey. They have very good balsamic salad dressing though. They charge extra $3 if you want to share an entree with someone in your group, which kinda put me off. Also, there is 20% tip automatically added to the bill for 6 or more people group.

A place of peace and casual elegance in the land of tour buses. Dinner was an unexpected pleasure. The menu offered interesting choices (definitely not pizza or BBQ), the staff was attentive and quick to change my entree when I did not care for what I had ordered. Not the place for large groups for children.

Took my college age son in for dinner while we went into town for a shopping run from the park. The bread and salad was very good and fresh. Entrees were also good and had fresh ingredients. Service was ok although the place was completely full. This was a highlight meal of our trip.

If you're looking for a nice meal in this town, you have to work a little to find it. Serenity Bistro is the place. Our main courses had finesse and taste, which is a major improvement over most of the 70s throwback restaurants in West Yellowstone!

Good food in West Yellowstone is few and far between. You get sick to death of Burgers and BBQ. The food at Serenity Bistro was delicious!! The fresh bread really hit the spot. I had the special of the day "pork chops" and they were wonderful. This place was a really refreshing find. I would highly recommend it. However, I... More

Had a wonderful meal at this restaurant. Our hotel owners suggested it and the food was wonderful. We sat outside on the patio and enjoyed a wonderful steak and good service. I would recommend.
