Five of us got different lunch meals, and we all enjoyed them. Good service. Apparently the owners are relatively new, but have 10 yrs of excellent experience. We had an indoor table with a great view of Bozeman Creek. Outside seating also creekside, whether permitting....More

I like everything about this restaurant. The menu has such variety that it is hard to choose. I've been there a number of times and I have never been disappointed in my meal. There is an excellent carbonara - not often seen on a menu....More
