Good restaurant for the area!

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... read 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

Love the food and atmosphere. Appreciate pirogues philosophy of starting with the best quality food and cooking to compliment its natural flavored rather than cover it.

The food was delicious but pricey. It surprises me when I pay $30.00 for a meal that only includes the entrée. However, it was the best meal I had while in North Dakota.

Excellent food. We went for a special graduation dinner. I would recommend reservations because the place was full that evening. Reservations were easily made. The atmosphere is quiet and sophisticated yet very contemporary. The service was outstanding. Staff attentive in a very. Subtle way. Portions were perfect and all meats were done to perfection. I had the lamb and it... More

My sister-in-law had a certificate & wanted to just get appetizers & wine. We tried 4 of the appetizers. The best was the pot stickers. Loved the quick friendly service. Atmosphere was lovely & new. Will go back for an entire meal.

Had the three course Spring Special. Roasted sausage on black bean and corn salad, pork tenderloin and tres leches cake. Outstanding and affordable as the special. Tomorrow will be bar bites for dinner. They look fab. Christina was great at the bar!!
