This was our 3rd visit to Big Sky and each time we make it a point to dine at Rainbow Ranch. However, this time the service was fair, at best . We were very disappointed and probably will not visit again which is a shame because it is such a spectalur setting.
Have been many times and the food has always been delicious, beautiful and innovative. The service was outstanding. Love to come early and have a cocktail in the cozy bar in front of the fireplace. It’s a bit pricy but worth it for a special night.
This place is effing awesome. Love it. Want to live there permanently.
Rainbow Ranch has a lovely atmosphere with outstanding food, wine list and service. My gluten allergy was accommodated with care, although limiting on GF desserts. I would highly restaurant to all. It was the best meal in Big Sky area we have had so go and enjoy !!
Excellent service and food but a bit overpriced for value.
Food was superb and unique. Foodies would enjoy
We recently had dinner and spent the night at the Rainbow Ranch with some friends. The food was incredible, the service was amazing and the accommodations were incredible. We will definitely be back again!
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.
Delicious restaurant excellent for special occasions
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.
Romantic and perfect for our anniversary celebration. Only wish we would have spent the night too.
We had an amazing food experience at Rainbow Ranch! The creative combinations for all courses were so delicious and interesting. A true taste explosion!
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.
Wonderful place to share a special night iut!
The food descriptions did not match what was delivered. I was also disappointed that the table behind us was having very loud inappropriate conversations with no regard to others around them and the servers didn't seem to think it was a problem.
The mushroom appetizer was amazing but the rest of dinner kind of fell flat. We did not get dessert since it looked very similar to Buck's T4 and we wanted to try something we had never had before. I would definitely try it again but maybe ask more questions about the menu before placing my order.
We went to the rainbow ranch twice during our five day trip. The food was absolutely wonderful. We ate out twice daily for each day during our conference and tried as many highly rated restaurants during our trip and the food here was just incredible. The trout pate, elk, wild boar, and pheasant was all a delight to my palate. Thank you for the wonderful meals.
