Each of us has our own expectation for a special meal. The food has to be excellent, perfectly prepared, attractively plated and with something a bit special or unique. When we consider such a meal in this part of the country, it runs around $120 a couple for a shared appetizer, entree, shared dessert and a bottle of wine.

$70 for a four-course meal for two!

We started with a bowl of soup; clam chowder in my case. Wonderful flavors and completely traditional. Thick and hearty. Now, follow it up with a pair of "house clams." Served in scallop shells and very flavorful. Then a mixed green salad with a tart huckleberry vinegarette--no iceberg here! A bottle of wine, just because.

Entrees were Quail, Scallops Newberg and Coq Au Vin. All perfect, all a bit unique.

Desserts weren't terribly original, but were of excellent quality, large enough to share and reasonably priced. White Mousse Pie and a Pecan Ball.

The server was a young man, friendly and personable. He took very good care of us and provided the interaction we desired without being overly friendly.

This is a restaurant that will become a destination for us. Butte is an amazing community with many things to see and do. Some lovely B&Bs and at least one glorious old hotel. We will make a weekend of it, simply for the chance to enjoy this restaurant again. With what we save, we should be able to get a nice room.

Excellent food and great service. A true gem. The restaurant was recommended to us by the owners of Toad Hall Manor B&B and we were not disappointed!

Loved this establishment and will be visiting every time we visit Butte. Excellent service, atmosphere, and food. I had the shrimp ravioli, and husband had a chicken dish, which he loved. The location is in uptown Butte, which is our favorite area to hang out. The prices at the Uptown Cafe are very reasonable for the quality of food you receive.

I love Montana and we visit many times a year, however, picking a restaurant for dinner is a daunting task. The Uptown Cafe is a classy place. The Servers are excellent and the food is superb. The tables actually have white tablecloths. I can highly recommend this establishment.

Ps. If you are seated before 6:30pm they offer an early bird special.

We had a large group dinner at the Uptown Cafe and they were so go to work with us and take great care of us. Large groups can be tricky making sure that service is of quality, quick, and the meals come out hot. Well the Uptown Cafe did themselves proud and we were the lucky recipients of their great efforts. We will be back. Give them a try.....you'll be taken care of I'm sure!
