My in-law family has a cabin about 30 minutes in outside of "west." Honestly, in the 20 some years that I have been going, have never had a good meal. Always packaged soups and stuff. For years, I have done nothing but got an ice cream cone in town. or a muffin in the coffee shop in the bookstore. It... More

You may think I'm being dramatic, but when a restaurant provides you with an expensive (I say it's expensive because of the quality of the meal you're getting) meal that tastes terrible going down, and gives you terrible acid reflux after… you get the idea. Ordered the panang chicken, which came with overcooked goopy rice noodles, very little curry or... More

I have had 5 or 6 dinners here over the past two years and have enjoyed every one of them. When I am planning to go through West Yellowstone I try to time it so I can have dinner here.

We had a trout dish & a bison burger Pros: open late October Cosy atmosphere Food is quick to come out Cons: everything drowned in butter & salt. If you like that style of cooking then this place is for you!

This place is tiny, so be sure to call ahead. Excellent food, surprising wine list and friendly service. Not the least bit pretentious. Serenity Bistro is a gem in West Yellowstone.

The menu was very limited and pricey. The meal was well prepared and delicious. It was the first day on the job for the waitress and she did very well in spite of her nervousness. I had the Angus rib eye - excellent.

This small restaurant serves excellent Italian food at reasonable prices. The staff really work as a team, and it's so busy they have to or it would be total chaos. We ate indoors, but there is an outdoor seating area which would be great for larger parties during the summer.

My husband and I discovered Serenity Bistro about seven years ago. We fell in love immediately and visit twice annually, or each time we return to Yellowstone. The food is memorable and the service superb. If you visit during busy seasons, reservations are a must for this charming, but tiny establishment.

What a nice find in Grizzly Country. My wife had salmon and I had the Idaho trout, they were both excellent. We had a good bottle of wine, and it was a great meal on a snowy night when the park was closed. The people at the Alpine motel recommended this restaurant and they were right!

While shopping on a very rainy day-my husband happened across the menu for the Serenity Bistro and said-we need to make reservations! So glad we did because by the time we did come in for dinner-the place was packed. It is a small facility so seating is limited. This was gourmet food at it's finest! Prices were very reasonable for... More
