No one to greet us when we arrived, so it seemed a little deserted. Someone finally came to seat us. Server was very friendly. Menu looked interesting. Food was very mediocre. Would not have complained about the stringiness and grittiness of the special aged ribeye if it had been a $17 steak, but at $29 we expected better. I don't mind paying a higher price for quality food, but this did not live up to the price tag.

It was a busy night, but we received a lukewarm streak that was slightly undercooked and a lukewarm ravioli that was a bit overpriced for the serving size. Table behind us also received not hot food. Only Thing that was hot were the fries which we were not offered any sauce with. Its a very good place to dine but I feel like I paid too much for the quality and service we received.

The food was good however the service wasn’t great. We were not checked on during the meal, not offered additional drinks to the point I ran out of water towards the end of the meal, and essentially just handed out check on the one time our server stopped back. He had mentioned he was very busy but had we been checked on once I would have been happy. I had heard so much about the food there that I was excited to have a nice meal with my date and we both left very off put by this experience there.

We were there on NYE, which happened to be our first anniversary. We could tell you guys were super busy and working hard. One of the managers(?)(a shorter guy, wearing all black) was busting his butt with a smile on his face the whole time- which as a former server, I can really appreciate. Our service was good... until he brought our food- the server dropped it off and walked away (didn't ask if we needed anything).
My husband had to go find another server to get steak sauce and ketchup. Our server didn't stop back again until he brought the bill. Spending $76 on bad service and okay food isn't exactly how we wanted to spend our anniversary.

We celebrated my husband's birthday with friends and what royal treatment we received! When we arrived, our waiter was at the door to greet us and had set our table with linens. He was highly attentive and made us feel so comfortable. The food was outstanding and made this birthday celebration one to remember!

We were traveling west and made it a point to stop in Bismarck so we could eat here! We’d stopped last fall and knew we wanted to eat here again. My husband had a steak, which he said was great, and I had the seafood risotto. Oysters weren’t as good as the first time - but understand it’s December in N.D. We travel out west a few times a year and have decided Bismarck will be out stop over so we can eat at 40 Steak & Seafood every time!

Waitress was at the table 4 times, 1) took order, 2)served salads, 3) brought meal, 4) brought check. Salad plates were still on table when meal was brought, we had to gather up plates to make room???? There were 6 of us. Everyone’s food was cold. Side dishes were cold. With no one checking on us, it was hard to bring to anyone’s attention. 1 drink was on the rocks, waitress brought shot glass and poured in glass, no fresh ice. This was a event we all looked forward to, we were highly disappointed. Will not return or recommend. Very over priced for the quality of the meal and lack of service.

II ate in here years ago and had a great meat that was very nice. Last night I was seated in a room where the large table was so loud telling stories and laughing. It made it hard to talk. We waited for a while before menu. Then waited for drinks. The appetizer came before our drinks. The drinks were nice and good temp. The calamari was perfect in cooking but to add the cheep small squids is a bad move. It mak snit a nasty dish. I dated a chef In a huge Winnipeg restaurant and I know that’s much cheaper to order so that why yo do I. It’s a bad idea. My lobster ravioli was perfect as always. My husband had they tonihalk steak that was terrible. He threw out over 2/3 of it. For 40$. That’s typical led for. Zz. We were very unhappy

This is the best steak place in Bismarck but does not seem to have much visibility on the review sites. We found it and it was cozy, the staff was friendly and attentive. The steaks were great and one of our party had the beef stroganoff which she also rated very highly. There are also some good values on the wines.

It's no wonder 40 Steak+Seafood has won the international steakhouse of the year award.
This is NOT your run-of-the-mill steakhouse. If you are looking for a truly fine dining experience, you'll not find one better !

We went for my son's Birthday and because we have always wanted to try a longer day dry aged steak. First of all the staff were very good. Friendly, courteous, you couldn't ask for any better. My husband ordered the cowboy king cut ribeye and I ordered the scallops, intending to share so we each had surf and turf . The steak was good, but hardly worth the price tag. The scallops unfortunately were not so good. I think I had too high of expectations and we are not used to maybe higher end restaurants where you have to pay for everything separate. When I pay $75 for a steak I usually get a potato and salad to go with it and not have to pay extra.

Husband and I went here for a date night. We haven't been there in years! We thought it would be a nice way to unwind from the choas at home-thinking it wasn't your usual "family restaurant." Well, We must have picked a bad night to go;lot of families with kids . Was pretty loud where we were seated. Service was slow but waiter apologized. In his defense they had three large parties that came in. Waiter did give us a free dessert for being patient. Food was great!
All and all we may go back again.

This place lived up to all I read on the reviews. It is a very nice place, the steak was amazing, and the people were very friendly. It's not cheap, but you don't get the best steak in North Dakota cheap. This is not a place you go for a cheap dinner. It's a place you go for a great steak dinner.

I went here with my Girlfriend on her friends recommendation. Flying out for 3 months and wanting a nice dinner, it didn't disappoint. Regrettably didn't get a chance to hear our waitors name (might have said it just didnt hear it personally), but was absolutely fantastic. I served for 5 years and understand the difficulty of serving at times, but he created a great atmosphere for us and was able to end our night on a fantastic note. To you & the cooks; thank you for giving us a great night.

Ordered their special for the day, which was their dry aged prime rib. I ordered it medium rare and it came out as some sort of grey hunk of meat with almost no color and poor texture. I was really disappointed and my girlfriends meal didn't sit right with her, she had the shrimp pasta. I had high expectations and it really fell short. Perhaps their other steak options are better but it seemed to me they are using a poor quality of meat, or aren't aging or cooking the meat correctly. Probably wouldn't go back or recommend it. Otherwise drinks and service were great.

The service was outstanding but the food was below par. The only thing that tasted good was the spinach and artichoke potatoes. The prime rib was not cooked right and the hash browns were average. They never explained what the bread spread was and so I was nervous to try. I did though and it didn't have much taste. Kind of reminded me of spam which doesn't set ok when your going out to supper. The prices were really high for not having that good quality of food. Prob will not come back very soon.
Maybe if they lowered their prices to match the quality of food it would be better.

I've been to 40 twice and had two different servers. The service is outstanding and everyone is knowledgeable regarding menu items and wine, cocktail and beer suggestions. Each person with whom you come in contact makes the guest feel like he or she is having a very personal experience. The food is wonderful. Original dishes and new takes on traditional dishes. The wine list is great as is the atmosphere. Overall, this is an excellent dining experience.

WE were very disappointed in the quality of the tomahawk steaks that we had. Yes it was showy however the quality of the meat was not good. And at the price we were certainly expecting something much better.
The side dishes were good as was the lettuce wraps that we had as a starter
.
The staff was good. The atmosphere was nice.

Got the 40 oz for $40. Was supposedly aged 35 days. First of all, it arrived cold. And it had some inedible grizzle. For a town that's crawling with cattle I'd expect not just cheap steak but good steak. If you want good steak, try coming to New York. I'd suggest Peter Luger, which is the absolute best, Smith & Wollensky, or even the chain, Ruth's Chris. The Thai lettuce wraps were tasty but a tad too sweet. My husband's seared tuna was very tasty.
