“This place was amazing!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2010

This place was so good! I couldn't believe more people weren't at this restaurant when we were. We arrived at 6pm with a reservation (as suggested). We had the fondue which was better than the best that we've had in Europe and Canada. We then had the cesaer salad and house salads which were very excellent as well. I had the recommended chipotle salad dressing on the house salad and it was not spicy as one would think. We then had appetizers for our entrees. I had the calamari and tuna which was incredible! And my husband had the escargots. Both were delicious and unique. We also experimented with the creme brulee' and the chocolate pot - both were excellent. We've traveled to France and these desserts compared to that experience! We highly recommend this place!!! Oh, and they also had affordable, very good wine!

“The best place to eat in Montana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2010

Very good! The food quality is excellent. We had the calamari and tuna appetizer, and entrees off of the bar menu. The prices are a little high but it's worth it, some of the best food we've eaten in Montana.

“A local favorite lived up to the hype!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2009

Food was great, service friendly and atmosphere elegant but casual. The menu selection diversity was great from healthy organic to comfort food, gourmet local meats...this place was a treat that we are going to every time in Big Sky!

“we were disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2009

We have been to big sky several times and gave by word of mouth a second try. Our waitress must have been having a bad night, or has an irratable personality. We asked her for wine recommendations, and she recommended a $60 and $75 bottle. We choose the $60 bottle. We finished that, but she never bothered to ask if we wanted more......??? We went friday night for the fish fry (all you caneat) which was overcooked. Some of us ordered off the menu and it was o.k. Overall a pretty disapointing meal for a large bill!

“A Nice Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2009

The entrance to By Word of Mouth is not exactly inviting and we lingered to read the menu that was posted prior to entering, all the while attempting to get a peek at the interior of the place. You're led past a small bar and into a dining room that is not in keeping with the Western motif you'd expect at Big Sky. High ceilings, sparsely furnished - bordering on contemporary except for the local paintings on the walls. That's all of the negativity that I can come up with. From that point on, it was delightful!

By Word of Mouth is all over the place with their menu, offering everything from Great Plains bison tenderloin to roasted Cornsh game hens with everything else (including sea food and a pasta dish) in between. One thing that is VERY clear about this place is that they understand food and know how to prepare it perfectly. I can't imagine that anything that you'd order could possibly disappoint. I'm a fussy eater and ended up with 3 appetizers rather than ordering an entre. Nothing was a problem. A dinner companion ordered a steak of some sort and it was so huge that he ended up bringing it back to River Rock Lodge with us (a short walk) and munching on the leftovers during the week.

It wasn't cheap (check out the menu on their website - http://www.bigskycatering.com) but it was worth every penny. Vegetables that were perfectly prepared, salad greens that were tender with just the right amount of dressing. We enjoyed every bite and would not hesitate to return.
