“Best place in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I stayed in Gardiner for 4 nights, and we had dinner here 3 times!
Very abundant and delicious dishes for a very reasonable price, and a fast and friendly service.

Pasta dishes come with a big salad. The Lasagna was excellent, the daily pasta dishes were also great, the steak was super tender and the creme brulee to die for!

“Great meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

Our party had the salmon, burger and pasta special. Loved it! Pleasant, efficient staff. We had a short wait for our table, and so we went down to the Blue Goose for a drink, and The Raven Grill called down when our table was ready.

“An excellent find in small-town Montana”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

We ate here twice in a three-night stay in Gardiner, and have no hesitation in recommending the Raven, Its a busy place so don't go if you're in a great hurry, and it doesn't look a plush place, but the food quality is excellent. It's one of a small minority of restaurants in the USA that cooks pasta properly, and both the quality of its meat and the standard of preparation is very good indeed. Salads are crisp and fresh. The only reason we didn't make it 3 from 3 is that the place was full when we turned up tonight. Note that the Raven is not open over the winter, and that aside I wouldn't find any reason to look elsewhere in Gardiner. Decent value too.

“Potential not yet realised”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

We sat outside which was perhaps a mistake. the slop bin was just yards away and the environment was wanting. However the food was good and theis restaurant has potential but the outside definitely needs attention. The bin needs moving out of the sight of customers and there should be some screen up to hide the gap between the Raven and the next building.

“Excellent food here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

We ate at three restaurants during our stay in Gardner and this was by far the best. The salad and bread were far above average and the steak was tender and juicy with an outstanding sauce. The restaurant was full when we arrived but they they held a table for us as we took a short walk during our wait and the staff made us feel special. The wine list selection was also good.
