Many New Year's Eve dinners are lackluster and decidedly unspecial -- see my review of Jean-Georges' Inn at Pound Ridge a few years back. This was not so for the Rainbow Ranch Lodge in Montana! We had a late 10pm reservation and they gave us a really excellent meal. I had the pheasant with risotto, and it melted in my mouth (and was washed down with a good Chenin Blanc). Dessert was a sweet and tart, strawberry and rhubarb cobbler, followed by coffee for the drive back to Big Sky. Oh, I forgot to mention the fireworks at midnight, but the bottom line was the food was really good.

Food is good but the food is very busy. There is just too much going on with each item. Service waa good but rather slow. Mushroom bruchetta was excellent. This place is Very, very pricey. Probably would not go back.

We had a phenomenal date. The ambiance of Rainbow Ranch is 2nd to none.

Our server, Jeff, was an excellent host and provided great food recommendations. The manager Dale provided us with an excellent Barolo wine suggestion to accompany our meals.

They claimed they didn’t receive our reservation from opentable . They didn’t give us a table till we pretty much pick one and sat down. The manager was rude and condescending, not apologetic for mistake. Blaming it on open table not them
Also, don’t order the trout

We were on our first trip to Big Sky over Christmas. I was looking for a nice meal for my family on Christmas Eve. The reviews for Rainbow Ranch were good so i reserved for dinner. Extremely impressed with ALL aspects of the experience from the time you walk in the door. Very friendly and prompt service. Of the 5 of us, we tried most of the entree items which focuses on wild animal from Elk, Bison, Beef and Wild Boar. There were other items but these were awesome. As noted above, the service and food were phenomenal. I highly recommend when in the area.

I took my girlfriend to the Rainbow Ranch for her birthday. We are both local residents of Big Sky. The service was outstanding, the food was outstanding, and the ambiance was outstanding. We both had the Bison Tenderloin, hers cooked rare, mine medium. Absolutely perfect. Wild mushrooms for an appetizer, and Creame Brule for desert. By far the absolute best place for a romantic dinner in Big Sky. A bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. We both had an enjoyable evening, one we will not forget.

We went for our third anniversary dinner while in Big Sky, but we weren't staying on property. The patio was ideal for views and ambiances and loved the opportunity to enjoy ingredients from local producers.
