    Wrapped up spending a week with my mom by taking her to brunch. Ashley was so accommodating, the food was fantastic, and the atmosphere exactly what I wanted - warm, clean, the perfect touch of fancy.

    Fantastic Friday in Bismarck! Filet so tender you could cut it with a butter knife. Nice wine list…our California cabernet sauvignon was super smooth. Our server Jill was exceptional! Highly recommend this restaurant.

    We really liked Butterhorn. We had a stopover in Bismarck on our way from Fargo to the Theodore Roosevelt National Park and decided to try this spot. Be aware, when you Google Butterhorn you may see attire shown as “formal”. This is not the case. You can dine here in casual clothing and fit right in. First, our server Keely (sp?) was amazing. She knew the menu in and out and what she didn’t know she quickly found answers and would come back and share. She also had a fantastic personality that made you feel like you were part of the family. Such a gift for a server. The Butterhorn rolls are incredible. Just don’t fill up too much on them as the rest of the menu is also very good. I started with the gazpacho verde which was very tasty and my wife had the summer fruit & feta salad which was amazing. Light and refreshing on both appetizers but the salad stole the show. We will try to make this at home, it was that good. For main courses, my wife had the chicken piccata which was very well made and the chicken thighs for the protein were perfectly cooked. I had the adobo pork tenderloin which was also very good with a perfect blend of flavors to compliment the protein. We finished with an ice cream trio which was a simple yet flavorful finish to our meal. I would highly recommend Butterhorn to anyone visiting Bismarck or those who call it home. It’s worth the trip!

    What a wonderful dinner and experience! The food was delicious...creative dishes with beautiful presentation. We enjoyed soup and emerald salad as starter with the pork tenderloin and gnudi entrees. My only regret...we were too full to enjoy dessert, but then again we enjoyed the butterhorns with our meal which could have been the finale. The service was top-notch. What a special treat when we actually got to meet and chat with Chef Stephanie and her husband, Shane. A perfect evening!

    We had the absolute best experience at the Butterhorn. The staff was superb, the food was amazing, and we got in right away at our reservation time. I learned that it is best to make a reservation as their chefs prepare food for you and they have a high standard of service, both in the food quality and the experience that each guest has. Reservations allow the staff to prepare for you and also make sure they have enough menu items for all. Each and every staff member was excellent and it was evident that they care for their guests and the experience that they have. I hope that the staff knows how much we appreciate them and that the heart that they put into their job !
