Eating at Pirogue truly an unique experience. The service has always been excellent. They create many of the entrees, so you won't be able to enjoy the same foods elsewhere. The food presentation is creative and edible. It is a bit pricey but it is worth every penny.

We went to Pirogue based on Trip Advisor reviews and we were absolutely amazed. We were so surprised to find a restaurant of this caliber in Bismarck. The scallops dish continues to resonate with us on our cross country trip. Just wish they would open a restaurant in Chicago.

Service was good, and the wine list was great for Bismarck, with reasonable selection and price. The appetizers are inventive and quite good (in my 2 visits I had the venison sausage and orzo pasta with rabbit confit -- they are small, but good). For my entrees I had the bison medallions -- not too flavorful but a well designed... More

The food and service is always good, and I consider this the town's best restaurant. It is expensive. The owner's wife, Sheryl, guards the tables and reservations. If you drop in on a weekend night and see empty tables, you may not get a seat because of pending reservations. Call ahead!

This is really a gem in the heart of Bismarck's downtown. We're from Dallas and were visiting my Mom for Mother's Day. Terrific food, fabulous service and a really cool atmosphere! I had the bison medallions - cooked perfectly medium rare. I had one medallion that was a bit sinewy, but the rest melted in my mouth! Chris, our waitress,... More
