    The service and atmosphere were outstanding. The food was kind of disappointing. We had a reservation at 7:30 last night. When we got there we waited for 10 minutes before being seated. The area we were sat in was really quiet and beautiful. It was the perfect atmosphere for a nice date. The server was really professional, but also friendly and nice. She explained everything perfectly. I ordered the French onion soup and it was really good. He ordered the house salad and it was really good. The rolls were also really good. We did wait for our main dishes for quite a while. The steaks and one of our sides were the disappointing part. We both asked for our steaks cooked medium. We went over what we meant by medium with the server and she agreed. When our steaks came out they were wayyy undercooked. They did ask if we wanted to send them back, but we figured at that point we would just eat them. The bacon truffle gorgonzola sauce for the steak was really good. We ordered two sides. The brussels sprout side was undercooked and hard to chew. The garlic mashed potatoes were good. My wine was also really good. Overall the experience was nice, but the food could have been better. We will have to come back and try other dishes, but I would not go here for a steak in the future.

    Food and service were great as usual. The room was cold however. That requires some attention.

    I have eaten here at least a dozen times and loved it. If this would have been my first visit, I would never return. We arrived 10 minutes early and were made to wait in a mostly empty dining room because a party of six had just been seated, making no sense to me. We waited ordered a couple of drinks and when it came time to go to the dining room we had to close our account. When I asked why it couldn't be transferred to our dinner tab, the bar manager brusquely confronted me, "Didn't I want to tip the bartender?" My question is don't they know how to allocate the tip? Every other fine dining restaurant I've been to does. We ordered our appetizer and starters which were promptly served but not by our server. One of the pleasures in the past here, interacting with our server was impossible tonight because the food was served quickly without any concern whether the food was satisfactory or not. While waiting for our steaks we asked for another couple of rolls. We were told they were out of rolls, When I politely expressed some disbelief, the server just left without any explanation or apology. After the first two courses, 30-40 minutes went by when the kitchen supervisor showed up to tell us that our steaks had been overcooked and it would be another 7-10 minutes before they were served. When he showed up with the steaks, he asked us to cut into them to ensure they were medium rare. This was the best service we received all evening long. Since everything is ala-carte we ordered a side of mushrooms which was at best lukewarm. When I tried to get the attention of either of the servers, I was ignored and finally just decided to Hell with it and ate them cold. The steaks, which are premium priced were fine. With the check, the original server asked us, "Well, what did you think of your fantastic meal?" Not a question requiring a response. I had trouble holding back a laugh. To summarize: the experience was most disappointing.

    Every time I go to Buffalo Block, I’m always impressed with the impeccable service, and delectable food. I’ve never gotten something there I didn’t love, and the ambience is nothing short of class and sophistication. Everyone you interact with is there to make sure you have the best night. I go there for most special occasions!

    I went into our reservation at Buffalo Block knowing how expensive it would be, so while I rated the value at a 5, just know that I’m basing it on the quality of the restaurant compared to what I paid. The restaurant was amazing. Ron, our server, did an outstanding job taking care of us and making sure our dining experience was 5-star. The food and drink options were large and had a good variety. I loved that the executive chef came out to cut and plate my tomahawk steak and made sure both my wife and I’s steaks were cooked to our liking. The ambience was excellent and everything, to me, was a top notch experience. Based on the cost, Buffalo Block is definitely more of a special occasion restaurant rather than a place you eat at weekly, but you get what you pay for, and the experience is the best you will find in Billings, and probably in the whole state of Montana.

    Setting and ambience was amazing. Service was great. Our waitress was amazing. My wife had the roasted chicken and she said it was amazing. I had the buttered aged New York strip steak. The steak was just ok. It was cooked perfect but for the price of just the steak with no side I hoped for more. The steak was lacking flavor and tenderness. All in all we will be back and hope for a better steak next time.
