We were in Bismarck for my 50th high school reunion. We decided - based on the reviews in Trip Adviser - to schedule dinner at Pirogue. I had the filet with sweet onion marmalade - outstanding. My wife had the seared tuna (special that evening) and again it was outstanding. In addition to great food, the service was perfect -... More

After reading multiple, rave reviews and looking over the menu, we had to schedule an overnight in Bismarck on our way to Glacier. We were not disappointed. Started the evening with a bottle of Domaine Chandon, appropriately priced at $28. Our wait person promptly returned with the sparkling and we had a toast. For a starter I choice the Soup... More

The atmosphere is wonderful, especially if you are celebrating a special occasion. It is nice and quiet and the service is great. The food is just okay. I had the salmon with pumpkin relish. The salmon filet was fine but I was not a fan of the pumpkin relish. It was bitter. My husband loved his swordfish. The portions are... More

Special brunch for reunion group at Pirogue Grille was a wonderful event. Simply scrumptious food, great service and a warm and friendly environment made this a wonderful capstone to a great get together. It will be a Bismarck fave in the future!

This is the second time I have visited thus restaurant while in Bismarck for business and once again I couldn't have been happier with the experience. The service is impeccable- very friendly and attentive staff who are knowledgeable about the offerings and can make recommendations. The food is fantastic! The first time I had sea scallops which to my pleasant... More

The food wasn't had, however I did expect more quality for the price range. The atmosphere was awesome as well as the service.

I've been here several times for business and is a great, higher end restaurant. This is usually our go-to place to bring customers when they come into town. The service is always excellent and is one of the few places that truly care if you have a good meal. I would definitely recommend it if you're up for spending a... More

As soon as you enter, it's evident that Pirogue Grill is going to offer a big-city but down to earth dining experience. From the tasteful original art on the walls to the tasteful foods on the table, this place doesn't disappoint. I started with the soup of the day - vegetable farro w a little hot "kick" from the special... More

This place was referred to us from a friend. The last time we were in Bismarck, we had the WORST experience with not only bad food, but awful service in all the places we tried. The Pirogue Grille was a refreshing difference. The place was packed (Friday night), and our server was excellent. I gave this place 3 stars because... More

The menu is delicious - I've never had a bad meal here - and the service is excellent. The food is absolutely worth the price, but I don't think it's that expensive anyway. The specials change frequently and are created to highlight locally sourced proteins and farmer's markets. This is a fairly small (seats 70) restaurant so it has a... More
