    Dined on 9/12/2014
    We decided to give the restaurant a 2nd chance. This time around service was friendly, helpful, and attentive. The menu variety is good. Food well prepared and well presented. I had the steak special and it was done just right. Wine list and cocktail list are good with nice variety and an international selection of wines. We ate here in January, 2014 and felt ignored by our server as our service was exceptionally slow.

    The friendly waitstaff made our dinner a great experience. Pork meatballs were on point. Calamari was, too. The trout was excellent but it didn't even need the sauce it came with. Bison T-Bone rocked.

    This was a great find in an unlikely spot. One would not expect to find this culinary level in Big Sky next to a pizza joint in a strip. This was high end eating without the high end prices or stuffiness. Loved the calamari appetizer made with rice flour (it's been so long!), shrimp and risotto,salad with seared tuna, spinach pappardelle,lamb burger. Good drinks menu, too. Casual atmosphere...the kitchen is paying attention to what people like to eat which is NOT always bison, venison or elk ( seemingly the protein staples of Montana.

    A hidden gem! Great energetic wait staff, delicious food that will receive top marks anywhere in the country...but especially fantastic for a ski town. Prices extremely fair.

    We dined at BWoM while we were on vacation. We had a delightful experience. Got there early enough for happy hour and had some great martinis. Entrees were very enjoyable and staff was attentive.

    Our party of four dined at BWOM the other night - Wow is the best we could say. Casual, friendly welcome and service started our evening, but the highlight is the food. Our party - from Philly snd Seattle - have eaten at some good places, but the trout several of our group had was the best ever anywhere. The Ahi Tuna was also great, as were the desserts. As we have a place in Big Sky, we will be back!

    We thoroughly enjoyed out dinner. The trout was delicious. My husband had the shrimp and loved it. It is a small restaurant where the food is excellent. It is kid friendly. Be sure to save room for dessert!

    We heard this was an excellent restaurant, so we wanted to try it. When we first arrived, it was so warm, that we asked to be moved to the bar area where it was a little cooler. It could be because the windows were closed due to the rain. Two of us ordered the Pork Osso Buco, (pork shank), one of whom loved it and the other who found it way too much work to eat. The other two ordered the Caesar Salad, which we both thought was mediocre with a lot of greens and not a whole lot else. I personally would be willing to try it again as it has so many good reviews that I'd like to try something else. Julie, our waitress, was lovely and very accommodating.

    The SPINACH PAPPARDELLE was house made and hand cut tossed with matchstick vegetables, portabella mushrooms and tomatoes and finished with Marsala cream, parmesan & fresh basil oil and it was out of this world. I asked if the chef could add shrimp which he did without hesitation. It was truly amazing. The lava cake with homemade coffee ice cream was excellent. It was hard to believe the place was empty--the food was fantastic and the service was great. This place is a MUST!!!

    Recyling Bin should be hidden from the front window's view, taking away what could be a scenic view.
