Description: 2nd Street Bistro opened its doors in the Historic Murray Hotel, Livingston, MT during the spring of 2004. We are rooted in the simple belief that great food and wine make life more enjoyable. Recently highlighted on Anthony Bourdain's "No Reservations", we are also the proud recipients of numerous regional 'Best Of' awards, including "Best Fine Dining", "Best Service", "Best Wine List", "Best Martini" and "Best Chef". Join us for a taste of refined authenticity! Above all else, we are committed to supporting the local economy and sustainable products. Our number one goal is to support our unique community of independent farmers, ranchers, artists, and professionals. If we can buy it locally, we will. If we can't buy it locally, we will seek out sustainable products. When you walk into the Bistro, you can be sure you are making a positive impact on our community and beyond.

“Surprising!”
Reviewed October 27, 2012 via mobile

We stayed at the Murray Hotel, so out of convenience we went into the bistro for dinner. We were pleasantly surprised. We had great food and service. My husband really enjoyed his meal, and I had a delicious salad. They always try to use fresh, local, and organic food. We enjoyed it so much we went back again for another delicious dinner. And I don't want to forget about the tantalizing drink list. We had a couple of fantastic Montana mule cocktails.

“Our Favorite Livingston Restaurant”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

1st Dinner: On this trip to Livingston, we invited our friends to join us here. As in the past, everyone enjoyed their meals and service with appetizers and different entrees. On a busy night, it can be a little noisy, but that's part of the "feel" of this establishment.
2nd Dinner: Later in the week my wife and I again dined here. We were early and sat at the bar to wait for our table. It is always interesting discussing items of local interest with the locals. My wife and I ordered different entrees (Specials) from the previous time and again, the food was very good with even better service. Great food, good service, and at a reasonable price. This has become our favorite Livingston restaurant.

Reviewed October 10, 2012

After a long trip to get to Livingston, the reward was great!! I had seen a travel channel show that highlighted this restaurant, so I wanted to try it. What a great meal!! From the apps to the dessert, everything thing was excellent. Great service, wonderful drinks, excellent food-you couldn't ask for a better dining experience.
