Really enjoyed dinner with friends from Colorado. The burrata / tomato special was outstanding and wedge salad is beautiful and easily split by two people. The desserts are a must.

Hidden gem tucked away inside a tastefully repurposed historic hotel building. Attentive staff and delicious food.

Reserve NOW! The trout was excellent! Great food and service. So glad we found this jewel. And to our surprise, they had Sticky Toffee Pudding. OMG! Nothing better on the planet. Met the owner/chef and the bakery chef to thank them for their extreme talents.

The food Was spot on! I will be back! However, although I had a reservation through open table and confirmed through email, the restaurant did not have it. All worked out but we did have to wait.

Absolutely everything we ordered was amazing!
The menu is very creative and eclectic in the best way.
We ordered way too much food. We didn’t eat it all but we wanted to taste it all. And we made the right decision
We started with a street corn, Brussel sprouts and peas.
Then split a wedge salad.
The main course we had was the angry crab and the ribeye
We left fat dumb and happy.

We eat all over the world and this place was breathtaking

A little pricey, but the food and service were excellent. The food is beautifully presented as well as absolutely delicious. If you want an evening of fine dining in Missoula, then this is the place.

The food was excellent, very spicy just like I like, a little too spicy for my wife. We split the 18 oz steak. It was served sliced which made it easy to serve. The Dirty Potatoes were delicious. One portion was large and we took the remainder home to eat the next day. The Green Salad was also very good. A very relaxing meal.

It really doesn’t get better than this in Missoula or Montana or the NW. Since moving here we have had the good fortune to dine here probably a dozen times. The food is interesting and creative. The beef is of outstanding quality (where are they hiding this in Montana?) and preparation. Other ingredients couldn’t be fresher. Laid back, unstuffy vibe. Keep your eye open for specials and pop ups - spicy “angry” crab, silky lamb shanks, wine or spirit curated dinners.

Third visit was great (as were the last two). This is at the very top of Missoula dining. Food is creative and interesting. Even things we tried that we weren’t sure of turned out to be delightful. Easy to over order because it all sounds so good. Ribeye is especially notable (as are Brussels sprouts, tempura delicata rings, and some “evil” potatoes). Service attentive and friendly. Lovely space. Thoughtful to health considerations (i.e. COVID).

Dinner was good and we actually got a small to go box, it was a bit over priced but at least we were full. The server was pleasant and attentive, although she forgot our veggie side, I don't think we were charged for it. The wine list was nice and the Pinot we picked was good. I think they need to add a stationary seafood item however, the fish of the day was sold out and they was no other option. Also, this restaurant is beer and wine only. Overall, I'd return but for a $200 dinner for 2, probably only once a year for special occasions.

This was our first time to try the new place. We were delighted! The braised beef cheeks were sinfully delicious, tender with an oh so rich sauce. We’ll be back!

We came for dinner last week with our family of four adults and three children. The centerpiece of our meal was the bone in ribeye which was absolutely outstanding! In addition, we had a number of shared plates all of which were quite remarkable and ideally prepared. The atmosphere was lovely and the service was both friendly and attentive. We will definitely come back again and have already made our reservations for New Year’s Eve (three months in advance!).

Enjoyed our first visit to what was Red Bird. Decor has changed; seats are more comfortable. Owner came to our table to chat - very personable and accommodating. We’ll be back, for sure. We have confidence that this will become a five-star Missoula restaurant.
