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.

“Consistent Cuisine and Atmosphere for over a Decade”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

The Bistro is a local institution, whether for an anniversary dinner or a quick bite at the Bistro Bar. Good food, fun and creative cocktails, a nice and professional staff. Hard to beat this location in downtown Livingston. Don't miss.

“Love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

We stopped here last to celebrate Jane's birthday while attending the vintage trailer rally during the Fiddlers Picnic the first weekend of August. You pretty much have to have a reservation. We have seen a couple of movie stars in there over time but a few live down in the Paradise valley so it is to be expected.

The food is always great. The service is great and cheerful, the drink selection is great, what can we say!

“Delicious.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

Dined here while visiting friends. Great food, good wine, nice prices. The ravioli special was delicious and cheese plate tastely with local cheeses. If you need a vegetarian entree call ahead though and ask if they can offer a special to accommodate you. They did for us. Much appreciated. It's busy so make a reservation on weekends.

“The best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

The food here was outstanding. I had the ravioli with artichoke hearts, goat cheese, and mushrooms, and it was delicious. For dessert, we had lemon goat cheesecake, and it was excellent! I highly recommend this restaurant, but be sure to make reservations.

“Great treat!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

We are visiting my brother and s-i-l who live in Bozeman, and they wanted to treat us to one of their favorite restaurants in the area. There were 5 of us and the restaurant accommodated us quickly, though we did have reservations. The restaurant filled up quickly on a Thursday night, and it looked as if every table was occupied.

Service was fast, fun and friendly. The food was delicious. Everyone in our group ordered something different, and all were pleased. Food presentation and wine (pinot noir from Willamette Valley in Oregon) were both very good though I did not see the wine list.
