A pleasant surprise in a culinary void

There's really nothing I didn't appreciate, particularly when comparing to standards in the region. The atmosphere, service and food were well, well above par for this city of what seems like very low expectations. This restaurant would hold its own in much bigger markets with higher... read more

There's really nothing I didn't appreciate, particularly when comparing to standards in the region. The atmosphere, service and food were well, well above par for this city of what seems like very low expectations. This restaurant would hold its own in much bigger markets with higher expectations. In Bismarck this is five star, in Denver it's better than average. Regardless... More

We recently ended our day of touring at Pirogue Grille in downtown Bismarck, and are we glad we did! This is a friendly, convivial place, totally unpretentious yet with its own unique style. It's interesting how a layout can lay the plans for a lovely meal. It is multilevel and is both casual and upscale. I usually don't stare at... More

ALWAYS excellent food and service. A must go for anyone who enjoys the best of the best. Great atmosphere, employees who have been there since they opened which says so much about the owners/management.

Pirogue has a wonderful atmosphere and is a great restaurant if you want to get dressed up and have a fancy date. The food changes out regularly and I have yet to have a bad dish here. Their salads don't seem to change much so if you go, look for their date and goat cheese salad. It is simply amazing.... More

Just tried this restaurant a couple of weeks ago thanks to a generous gift certificate I received as a retirement present. Features local specialties like bison and rabbit, but offers more worldly dishes as well. Finally, my husband and I were able to enjoy a meal as adults without being forced to listen to children fussing and fighting and video... More

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.
