I love,love,love this restaurant. The owner is so pleasant and visits each table to make sure your dinning experience is wonderful. The food is so delicious. My husband had the Salmon that melted in your mouth. Our friend had the Pork chop,which he had another time and loved it. We had salads, Scallops, and a flatbread pizza. No skipping dessert... More

Went here one night for dinner and was able to sit outside at a picnic table. Made for a fun experience since it was a nice night out. The service and food were excellent. Since it's about a block off of Main St it's easily overlooked but shouldn't be!

This was the perfect venue for a family celebration dinner. There's lovely outside seating this time of year, but we opted for a booth inside. We started with red wine from a great selection. My husband had the seafood special - swordfish - and I had the eggplant parmesan. Our meals came with soup or salad. We both had the... More

Interesting space in what was a large school now an artist's co-operative. Menu and preparations are imaginative and there is an excellent wine selection both by the bottle and the glass. Service is friendly but stretched at times by an outdoor dining space.

One of my Bozeman favorites for a nice evening out on the town. They do have gluten free options. Nice atmosphere, but it can be loud if you're there when it's full. In the summers you can eat outside on the lawn.

My husband and I went last week and loved it however we had our three children with us, I do not recommend this place for children under the age of 8. We called ahead of time and they said they were family friendly but there were no other children there, no kids menu, and when our two year old had... More

We enjoyed our meal here. The food was quite tasty and very well prepared. The service was attentive, and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. The grill is hosted inside an old school building, but it did not have the typical school feel. There was just enough thoughtful decor and lighting to give you the feeling of being in a... More

I enjoyed my meal here. It was a wonderful atmosphere outside dining under their large tree. Jaycee (sorry if misspelled) was a great waitress. Pizza was great but I would have loved a bit bigger pieces of basil and tomato on it. It was a margherita pizza and it seemed to be missing the slices of fresh tomato. It had... More
