About the restaurant
Sustainability and creativity have always been at the top of SakeTome’s priorities, and in the seafood business, a reverence for the ocean is of utmost importance. We are trying to be as sustainable as possible, so we search out products from all over the world that share that same mindset. Japan, New Zealand, Iceland, Alaska, Maine, Scandinavia, and more. In line with sustainability, we try to use as much local produce as possible. Our micro-greens are grown specifically for us, right here in Missoula.

Mandy and Stefania were fabulous! The food was all very good but it was the Tempura Mushroom appetizer that was truly outstanding. You have got to see it in person to believe it; it's perfect to share for 3 people and the sauces that it comes with are amazing! Dinner at The Grill was the perfect way to celebrate all our birthdays.

Service was excellent. Checked back often. Drinks refilled and starters/entrees paced perfectly. All four of our steaks & burgers were cooked to perfect temp (from med rare to med well).

Premium spot with great menu options and definitely a venue for the cool kids in Bozeman. I’d go back. That’s what it’s all about; would you return? and I definitely would. You won’t leave mad about your experience. They do a great job.
