Relaxing place with live music for dinner. Comfortable and not pretentious with food that was superb. The salad with candied nuts and bread with oil and balsamic were a great beginning, and then the Indian curry that was out of this world. The flavoring was perfect, the added chicken was tender and tasty, the add-ins of yogurt and spicy mint... More

Nice lunch spot in Helena but too expensive for a cup of soup and a panini sandwich. Soup was luke warm so we had to send back to be re-heated. Sandwich was quite small but side of cole slaw was tasty. $44 for 3 people not including tip. Nice atmosphere and friendly wait staff.

Great little place on 6th Ave. I didn't expect such a relaxing and tasty mid afternoon lunch. I had a double portion of Roast Beef with Monterey jack cheese and a nice mild horseradish sauce in between two very tasty wheat grain slices of bread called a "Montana Rancher". My side kick had an "Indian Curry with basmati rice" It... More

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! From the moment I got there I was in love. The restaurant is on the historic registry and the inside had exposed brickwork. There was live Jazz music, candles, cloth napkins, the works. The wait staff were very polite and attentive. There's an open kitchen so you can watch your food being made. The wine selection here is... More

We were passing Helena and stopped for the night. I wasn't very happy when I sat down at the place because the restaurant we wanted was closed and drove around for another restaurant. We saw there were many customers even it was late so we took a chance. The food cured me of my grumpiness. The free focaccia bread with... More

This is the perfect spot for lunch or an intimate dinner. Margaret, the owner, works hard to source locally and feature fresh, organic foods. They have a lovely wine menu and often feature live music. You cant go wrong on their soups or desserts

We paid 86 usd with our creditcard and gave her a tip of 20 usd in cash. We were very disappointed to see that afterwards they increased our debetcard amount with 20% to 103 usd on... More
