This may be the best place in Missoula to have a great, relaxed meal. We took our time and enjoyed every course over about 2 hours. Red Bird offers something different from the typical restaurant. Great variations on common dishes without being extreme. The duck chili relleno appetizer and the beet salad are great examples. The service was excellent, and... More

When you go to dinner with 6 other people and every single person has a different dish and every single person raves about their meal - then you know you've hit the restaurant jackpot. Red Bird is a fairly unassuming restaurant in an old hotel turned office building- the art deco style greets you in the lobby - but from... More

This is about the third time we've dined in the dining room. The food is over priced and tiny portions (the presentation is nice, the main course is all stacked on top of itself). Someone told me the other day the bar menu is much better so maybe we'll give that a try next time. The bar is much louder... More

Red Bird is a favorite for a nice casual or formal date night. The atmosphere is cozy and warm, and the food is a unique blend of great classics with middle eastern? flavors and added spices. I had a tenderloin at my most recent visit and it was phenomenal, and the service impeccable. We were with a larger party of... More

We are often in Missoula visiting family. The best part of Missoula is the great food. We always make sure we have dinner at the wine bar. The menu fits the needs of all including vegetarians and vegans. Of course, the wine is always the added feature for us!

You have two choices of atmosphere in dining at the Red Bird, a casual one in the wine bar or a more formal one in the dining room, the menu is the same for both. The menu is eclectic and the food is delicious, the wine selection is very good, and they offer beer as well. The staff is experienced... More

The food here is unique and perfect. I have eaten here many times over the past ten years or so and the meals have always been super. The drinks are great and the wine list extensive. Locally grown food is a primary focus but that does not make it bland or boring...

Went with a few friends. The food was fantastic, but we did have to wait for a table. It was worth the wait. Helpful waitstaff made suggestions about wine pairings and food recommendations. They were right on the mark with all. Definitely worth it.

We dined here two times, about 3 weeks apart, the Wine Bar both times. All of the food we had, both visits, was very good. The menu is dynamic, so things may change. The second time we visited, I ordered the Vegetarian Plate (very Middle Eastern style) and my husband ordered the Grilled Lamb Kabob & Lamb Sausage (with lentils... More

This is the spot I always send friends when they ask for the best place in town. I can't believe I waited so long to try this joint
