Brunch was fabulous with various delicious offerings. Sitting on the patio on a beautiful Mother’s Day with a special drink and live light jazz music in the background was perfect.
I have celiac disease. The waitress was very aware of dietary restrictions and accommodated me easily. The service was excellent as was the food. And the wine list was fantastic. I would strongly recommend visiting this restaurant while you are in Missoula! If we return to the city, we will be back.
We loved the spicy fries! They’re amazing! We had the market fish and were disappointed. It did not have much flavor - the whole dish was too subtle and was quite expensive! The main dining area is very loud! The next time we come we will try to sit in another area!
The service workers were very friendly and capable!!!
We had a great meal with family and friends. Great server and great food. Thanks...
Dinner service begins at 4:00 PM according to their website. We arrived at 4:00 and all the doors were locked with people waiting outside to get in. We finally called their number and the owner stated yes they were open. We told him the doors are all locked and people waiting outside, so he came down to let us in and told us he would try to find staff to assist us... (apparently staff either doesn't know when they open or no one has been directed to unlock the doors for customers). My husband also had to report to the owner that the men's room had no soap in the soap dispensers.
Appetizer was burnt. Sent it back for new one. Food was just okay, nothing special, but pricey considering the entrees did not come with any sides, so you had to pay extra for salads, etc. (My fish tacos were small and the two small tacos were served on a small plate with nothing else on it. The pasta dishes were served in pasta bowls, just a heap of pasta, nothing else with. They also do not serve any bread before the meal). This place has fine dining prices but seems to specialize more in bar food.
The waitress was friendly and accommodating when we asked for something. Desserts were good.
We've been here several times and LOVE it. Finally a place that we can go and actually have a conversation without all of the loud noise. The ambiance is perfect for a date, couples night and special occasions. Seating is comfortable and the owners are always there visiting with the guests. Food is a little spendy but worth it for local ingredients and it's delicious.
Friend in town from out of state.
Memorable--in the sense that I will never set foot in this place again. The "salad" consisted of wilted lettuce obviously days old, with a vial of tasteless dressing on the side. Having never in my life sent a dish back to the kitchen, I sent this back. Ordered coq au vin for an entree. What came out tasted like it had been prepared by a hamburger flipper. Grossly overcooked chicken, done to sawdust. The whole dish totally without taste and bearing no resemblance of any kind to actual coq au vin. No bacon. BTW, no bread or rolls were served with the meal--and the table faced a bank of televisions. The place has the ambience of a casino but postures itself as a fine-dining establishment. If crap if your idea of fine dining, then hurry to Rumour.
Eating here was an amazing experience, amazingly comfortable seating and amazing food and wine! The waiter was a ton of fun!
Greg, our waiter , was great! We went early , so very quiet, which we love. Great atmosphere and food was fantastic. They are not including tip in the cost of the food anymore, so don’t forget to tip!!!
I have hosted 3 business events at Rumour and the food and service have been more than exceptional each time. Highly recommended!
The service, food, and drinks were exceptionally good and good value. We truly enjoyed our experience!
This is our third visit to Rumour and it is fantastic! First we went for an Anniversary dinner; then Brunch with 3 generations; and our last visit was a gift for our friends. And every single time we found the experience to be perfect! On our last visit we were fortunate to have been serenaded by an excellent musical couple that created a delightful mood that allowed for conversation. On top of the superb food and professional service we were truly pleased with their efforts to be green and local. It is now our Restaurant of choice in Missoula!
I have been here several times now. The food is always top notch and the service has improved immensely. It is a very nice place for couples or a work group gathering. The wine selection is awesome and priced well. This time I ordered the halibut. Aside from a great meal with crisped rice and perfect veggie, the halibut was cooked perfectly all the way through. By far the best halibut I have had in Missoula.
We went for Valentine's Day Dinner. Our dinner ticket got lost our meal was significantly delayed and by the time it was discovered the Special that my wife had ordered was no longer available. Our Server agreed to comp our dessert which was nice but then we got the wrong dessert. It was a busy night and we had late reservations but overall the experience was somewhat comical.
Was disappointed with there not being wine flights and the fries that came with my burger were bits and pieces of fries that weren’t really edible so I didn’t get many edible fries. I ordered a double cosmopolitan martini and it barely tasted even like a single but I love the owners so we will be back!
Pad Thai was amazing last night but next week it might be entirely different. I hope not!!
I came here last summer with a few gal pals and was not impressed. The waitresses "forgot about us" for at least 20 minutes until I politely addressed them. The food was thumbs down. When it came time to have my employee appreciate night, they all wanted to go to Rumour. I decided to give it a second chance. I don't know if they got new owners, a new chef or both, but we all had an awesome time! The drinks are amazing, our waiter, Dave, was wonderful, the Owner came by the table to see how we were doing, and the food was SO MUCH BETTER. WE spent 4 hours there eating good food and drinking great cocktails. Superb all around! I plan on taking my husband there to celebrate my birthday next month!
Good food, boring presentation, and overpriced for what you get. Waiter provided good suggestions for wine. Everything tasted good and staff was nice but it didn't leave me wanted to go there regularly. Instead of the waiter saying "you're welcome" we received the "no problem" response which is true to the younger generation but unprofessional. At one point, a lady approached the table and asked how everything was. No idea who she was because she didn't introduce herself. Odd. Nice, rustic atmosphere in the room with the garage doors. I would go back for a special occasion.
John & Colleen are excellent hosts. We have gone there for weekend brunch almost every weekend and their Eggs Bennie are the best I've seen. Rumour is one of the best places for weekend brunch in Missoula...good food, good ambience, good service...not to mention great breakfast "drinks". SEA
As good as the best in Missoula. Excellent food, fast, friendly wait staff. Great building, Owner checkedon us personally. Will definitely be going back.
It’s a nice place. Food was delicious. I really like it.
On holiday weekends do not go without reservations. On Friday night they were swamped, people without reservations walked away. For the 4 of us it took over 75 minutes to get and finish our meal. The waiter tried his best to get us out of their because we had a play to watch.
It took an hour and a half to get our food, which arrived cold. Ravioli was too tough to eat, as was the pork chop. Three tables abandoned their order or returned their food while we were there. What the heck happened? This used to be a great neighborhood place to take guests.
The service was very bad. Our reservation was at 6:30, we did not leave the restaurant until almost 9:30. For four people who ordered an appetizer of fries, that took an hour and a half to arrive and then 4 dinners that arrived an hour after that it was crazy. We had to ask for our appetizer twice and requested our check just before our dinner showed up because it had taken so long just to be told it would be right out. 3 of 4 of the meals were cold. The food was good, and the waiter was polite-just not very good at customer service. We did did get any sort of explanation on the wait nor discount. The table next to us was equally upset about their wait. As a fan of this restaurant I was really disappointed and probably won’t go back. Our guests had never been there before and told me it was the worst service they have ever had and will never go back. I was very disappointed in this experience.
I don't expect to pay $27 dollars for an entrée at a sports bar! I asked to sit anywhere without a TV, and we were sat right below 2.
Excellent food and great ambience. Probably the best restaurant in Missoula.
Food was slow, out of item on menu. Dinner plate was poorly cooked. Overall not impressed.
My friend and I each ordered Eggs Benedict without the ham. It was..OK. There was a spice in the Hollandaise sauce which I had never tasted in Eggs Benedict before and I didn't like it. Fortunately, it wasn't strong. Also, I prefer that dish with the eggs poached more lightly and a more generous portion of the sauce. I found the dish to be a little on the dry side. I ordered a virgin Bloody Mary and it was horrible! Undrinkable, even after I asked the waiter to modify it.
On the positive side, we did like the atmosphere and the service. In fact, we enjoyed ourselves so much, we forgot that they closed at 2pm on Sundays! When we realized we had overstayed, we apologized and made haste! The staff was very friendly about it.
Unremarkable in both food and service. Go to Paul's Pancakes two blocks away or downtown for better food quality and service.
Great tasting food, loved the wine flights and the prix fix option
Very good food and good portion sizes. The soup was excellent.
I have been going to Rumour for several months now. It is so nice to now have a go to place for mid-town. The owners are wonderful and always check in to see how things are. I love having great wine on tap given Missoula doesn't recycle glass. The menu changes often giving lots of new things to try and there is always a great variety of options. We go for couples night but I also have business meals there because the individual rooms allow for as much or little privacy as you might need. Great place.
Rumour is our new favorite restaurant in Missoula. Their food is as locally sourced as possible and they serve organic produce. The owners came by and visited with us. Both very personable. The wait staff is very friendly. The food is exceptional, served in a very timely manner and beautifully presented. We would highly recommend this restaurant. We will be back whenever we are in Missoula.
This place was quite busy when I arrived at 6pm on a Friday night and I was glad to have a reservation as others were being told there were no tables available. The cocktails here are very good. The bartender made two whisky cocktails, both of which tasted great and were not watered down. I had the prime rib and while it was very good, the knives at this place are not sharp at all. It took a lot of work to cut through a tender prime rib. I had a second steak knife brought out, but it was the same issue. The manager said they need to sharpen their knives. Despite that, I really liked the food and atmosphere. It is on the pricier side though. You will spend about $50 per person or more unless you stick to burgers and soda.
Great food. Great service. Very expensive. But worth it for special occasions
Great decor but tvs were on as a live music act was on and that was odd. Hard to find a nice dining experience withOUT keno and tvs going on. Also the patrons at the bar were so loud and foul mouthed it REALLY made the atmosphere uncomfortable
One of the better restaurants in Zoo-town...I am wondering if there has been a change in the kitchen as the food has taken a decidedly negative turn...
The owners and staff were very friendly and welcoming and the service excellent. The food was delicious and we had a great time. Our word for the occasion was "exquisite"!
Absolutely great service from our bartender; friendly, and attentive. Food was delicious and mixed drinks too.
