The Pirogue offers fine dining with a prairie twist. We enjoyed every dish, but the venison sausage, pork chops, and strawberry rhubarb tart were all stand outs. Service was friendly and efficient, our booth was quite comfortable, and the wine/ beer/ cocktail list was expansive. Just when we thought we couldn't possibly eat another bite, a complimentary dish of fresh... More

After reading other TA reviews, and knowing we had an evening in Bismarck, this was the restaurant we wanted to try. The appetizer menu captivated me and I opted for choosing chicken and peanut potstickers, another using rabbit meat, a cup of gazpacho, and a beet salad. All were very good, but the potstickers were the best! And I've eaten... More

Our family chooses this restaurant for special celebrations for a number of reasons, mainly their diverse menu choices, excellent service and delicious food. Their desserts are a special treat as well. The atmosphere is warm and reasonably quiet so we can visit. I recommend this restaurant wholeheartedly!

I got the impression from reviews that it was above average but I was surprised to find it first rate, on a par with better restaurants in NYC, Boston and Portland, OR. Heirloom tomatoes with mozzarella to start were superb. I had a choice of bison "New York cut" steak or bison tenderloin medallions. I had the latter with an... More

We met a person at Denver airport who recommended this place to us. Nice atmosphere, great wine list, and excellent food. My wife had a lamb stew with an Opolo Zin from the local food coop and I had the pork chop with dill flavored mashed potatoes with a Clos duVal cab. It was all very tasty. The picture is... More

Great reviews led us here! I started with the local cherry tomato salad with tomato sorbet & garlic tuille and it was fresh and amazing! I had the halibut special with the wine recommended by our waitress Brandy! Beautiful atmosphere, friendly staff and superb meal start to finish!

What a delightful dinner! Traveling to Alaska and this was our end to day #1. Lovely waitress, excellent soup and salad specials and husbands entree of trout was near perfection. I opted for a tapas style meal of gazpacho, special salad, and eggplant Napoleon appetizer...fresh and satisfying!

Thank sookee0310
