We’ve been to South 9th on each of our visits to Montana and it never fails to impress. A cosy ambience, diverse and exceptionally well prepared dishes, a small but balanced wine list and attentive staff make this restaurant a real must for any visit...More

South 9th Bistro was a wonderful experience. Th lamb was exquisite as was the chicken and the wine. The servers were attentive but not hovering.. They have gluten free and vegetarian options. It was a delightful evening. We will return. We highly recommend it

The walls and ceilings glow with a warm orange hue. My husband ate the most delicious fillet mignon ever. He loved it! I had a delicious mushroom risotto. The portions are large.

I’ve been reviewing South 9th Bistro for years now, but it didn’t occur to me until last night’s meal that this restaurant’s exceptionalism is its consistency. So many Bozeman restaurants rise and then flame out. Lisa, our server, is an example of this consistency. She...More

This is some of the best food in Bozeman. I am always amazed with the food they have on the menu here and their crack pie is the best dessert!

Hundreds of excellent online reviews, local word of mouth, and foodies all agree that South 9th Bistro is the best of Bozeman for a relaxed, fine dining experience. Located just south of Main Street on 9th Avenue, the Bistro is easy to find - by day, by its distinctive orange Victorian facade, and by night, by its many windows aglow with the warmth and comfort of the space within. Seating at the Bistro is available both inside and (seasonally) outside. Inside the Bistro, seating on the main floor is open and upbeat, while seating on the second floor is a bit cozier and more intimate. The second floor also features a separate private dining area that can comfortably accommodate up to 10. The Bistro's kitchen is under the direction of Chef Ryan Trenton. Our seasonal dinner menu is broad in scope, featuring dishes such as Steak au Poivre served with dauphinoise potatoes and Pan-seared North Atlantic Salmon with lemon- caper beurre blanc and wild rice. The menu also offers vegetarian options such as Ratatouille with polenta and sauteed haricots verts, and Roasted Butternut Squash Ravioli served with a sage-marsala butter sauce and carrot-ginger mousseline. All of our menu items are fresh, scratch-made in-house. We also feature numerous gluten-free options. The Bistro also offers a full selection of wines, beers and port. South 9th Bistro is open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday, from 5:00pm. Reservations are recommended. Dinner fare is available for take-out during dinner hours. South 9th Bistro: Great Food, Great Service, no excuses
