We arrived w/put a reservation but was seated quickly. Excellent house selected red wine. Roasted cauliflower appetizer was crispy though a bit to vinegary from capers. Our special pizza was delish thought very charred.
By Word of Mouth ("BYOM") always delivers good food. Service is cheerful and friendly. The Tuna Katsu small plate is good. The portabella cauliflower wasabi dish is excellent (this from someone who does not ordinarily like cauliflower). The noise level can be a serious impediment to dinner conversation, so we go early. They are always willing to turn down the background music, if requested. Their wine specials on the chalkboard are always interesting to try.
Great and creative food- and a pub menu if that's what you crave!! Wonderful service-app wings are great! Had the lamb- delicious and shrimp- very good! A must try on your trip to Big Sky!!!
Love BYWOM! Good food that is consistent and delicious mixed drinks. Menu is well thought out and specials are always good too!
Fantastic food and wait staff! I MUST eat here at least once every time I visit Big Sky.
We had several meals at WOM when they opened many years ago and it was excellent. Everything about the recent meal was disappointing. Food so so and not up to the price. Service was good, friendly, however our salads we brought 45 seconds before our meal. We did not eat the salad, yet were still charged for them. In addition, my salmon came on a "bed of lettuce" which turned out to be a monster salad the same as the house salad. Would have expected the wait staff to point that out and suggest I not order the salad.They used to have an excellent selection of wine. Not so much now. We won't be going back. The reputation with Big Sky locals matches our experience.
Very sad when a place who once was great, plunges to disappointment.
The lack of ambiance keeps this from qualifying as fine dining. It's too bad they don't have the whole package, but well worth a visit for the food and service. Basil shrimp is stellar, good trout and tuna; warm kale salad is too oily, but flavorful and interesting. No good champagne choices, some good wines, a variety of beers. The outside of the building is nondescript, and there's no good signage (up the street from the firehouse).
Overall the food was just OK with weird Chines twists and sometimes way too much salt, like for the squid linguine. The pinot noir wine we got for $34 was pretty bad. This place is overpriced by 30% at least.
We had a reservation--promptly seated but did not get served food until an hour later--there was a large table that had put in their orders just before us. I got The asian noodle dish with smoked tofu--it was incredibly salty--I really couldn't eat much of it--it was really frustrating because I was quite hungry after waiting so long for the food--the server was courteous, he kept bringing us a bit of bread to tie us over. My husband enjoyed his panini w smoked tofu and French onion soup.
Don't be deterred by the outside and the canvas sign, they are putting money into great food and comfortable , casual and excellent cuisine. We enjoyed 2 tasty dinners during our 8 day stay
