Immediate seating, excellent attention to our desires and the food and drink were outstanding. They offer a good selection that addresses various taste preferences. Our friends from Austin were also quite impressed.

I can't rave enough about this lovely bistro that combines top-notch food and excellent service with the warmth and charm of being in the company of family. Our group had the entire restaurant for a dinner during the conference and the chef/owner literally made us feel as though we were treasured family and friends. He was exceedingly gracious and his...

Olive's Bistro is certainly a 5 star for Big Sky although a 4 star compared to some of my other dining experiences, which have been quite varied. I had Olive's baked oysters which were good and also had the elk tenderloin. My dining partners had the salmon, seafood pasta and halibut and all found the meal quite good. The meal... More

Big Sky, Montana, is a fantastic tourist town. Like all tourist towns the meals can get a bit heavy on burgers, pub appetizers, etc. Olive B's is a great change of pace. You'll find anything but burgers and pub fare here. Everything we ordered was top quality and carefully prepared. Highly recommend the shrimp and grits ("amazing" says my wife),... More

Prompt service. Exquisite food. Worth every cent! In our party we had a burger and fish tacos along with the soup of the day - curried chicken with saffron rice. We will be returning! Appreciated the pleasant service!

Family lunch in Big Sky. French onion soup is a soup divine...creamy cheese with a touch of beef consommé and wonderfully diced onions. The fish tacos have delicately simmered cod and a layer of elegantly shredded cabbage slaw. The bison burger was tender, juicy and tasty. Wait staff is wonderful. The gourmet place to be for lunch!

We enjoyed a late lunch outside on Olive B's patio. It was relaxing and enjoyable, and the food and wine were excellent! We shared a cobb salad, and my husband had the jerk chicken chili. We topped it off with the banana bread pudding, which was heavenly. I'd definitely recommend Olive B's!

Again I do not hand out five star or excellent ratings often but I did twice on our Big Sky vacation ( go look up my other one if interested ). The drinks, the apps, the dinner, and the desert was all spot on. Everyone at our table had something different and everyone had rave reviews. Quaint inside and located... More

We spent the day in Yellowstone and opted to go out instead of eating left overs. We started the meal with some delicious bread with hummus. I opted for the beet salad which was so good. Then had the crab cake appetizer for my dinner. I was expecting on small crab cake but got two nice size cakes over a... More
