We had a very personable greeting and an evening of excellent service. The menu selections were varied and specialized, with a focus on quality. The expectations of our table of four were met and surpassed to include a shared excellent dessert. You have our recommendation.

Delectable beef bourguignon with smashers, green beans and sumptious ribeye with spinach and amazing mac and chez. Beautiful wine by the glass. Really wanted the tart dessert but alas, couldn't put the fork down on the fantastic entrees. Deelish!

I wouldn't bring children mainly out of courtesy to other guests who might be looking for a more calm dining experience.

Scores of excellent online reviews and local word of mouth agree that South 9th Bistro is clearly one of Bozeman's top restaurants. Enjoy casual upscale dining in a completely revamped turn-of-the-century home. Located just south of Main Street on 9th Avenue, the Bistro is easy to find - by day, by its distinctive orange Victorian facade, and by night, by its many windows aglow with the warmth and comfort of the space within. Seating at the Bistro is available both inside and (seasonally) outside. Inside the Bistro, seating on the main floor is open and upbeat, while seating on the second floor is a bit cozier and more intimate. The second floor also features a separate private dining area that can comfortably accommodate up to 10 guests. The Bistro's kitchen is under the direction of Chef Ryan Trenton. Our seasonal dinner menu is broad in scope, featuring dishes such as Steak au Poivre served with dauphinoise potatoes and Pan-seared North Atlantic salmon with lemon- caper beurre blanc and wild rice. The menu also offers vegetarian options such as Ratatouille with polenta and sauteed haricots verts, and Roasted Butternut Squash Ravioli served with a sage-marsala sauce and carrot-ginger mousseline. All of our menu items are scratch-made in-house, including our pasta, baked goods and desserts, with numerous gluten-free options. The Bistro also features a full selection of wines and beers. South 9th Bistro is open five days a week, Tuesday through Saturday. Happy hour begins at 4pm, dinner service at 5pm. Reservations are recommended. Dinner fare is available for take-out during dinner hours.
