I remembered this restaurant as offering a fabulous collection of tasty and somewhat unusual menu offerings and was somewhat disappointed on this visit. Service was friendly and skilled, but our dinners and desserts were pedestrian.

(sorry this is a little lengthy) We went to this restaurant on a Friday evening and I was surprised at how few were seated. This is a more upscale place but still is doing well. We requested to sit in a specific waitress’s area as she was a favorite of one in our party. We now know why. Megan was... More

We looked for a place to eat on the road passing thru Bozman and though this place might be a local place to try. We had different types of burgers, mainly bison. It was a great burger. Fast and good service. Well worth the stop.

There's nothing worse than a restaurant that serves fish tacos in flour tortillas. Thankfully, John Bozeman's Bistro does not. They also have an eclectic menu for all tastes which is to say, hamburgers, salads and other main courses. Additionally, they understand food allergies so substitutions are easy and do not cost extra.

Nice variety on the menu. The Cajun New Orleans with tenderloin was delicious. Nice beer selections. The wait staff was attentive. Full plate menu was a bit pricey, but worth trying

Many years ago, this was the "go to" restaurant in Bozeman. Now there are far too many options in town to ever go here again. The service and atmosphere are fine but the food is a shadow of its former glory. Trust the Trip Advisor ratings. My inclination was to hit Ted's or Ale Works which I've recently had great... More

Both the food and the service here were top-notch. Our drinks never went unfilled, the service was quick and friendly, and the music was pleasant. I highly recommend the Mona Lisa sandwich.
