This place has amazing food and great off-season specials! Check out their website to see what specials they are running. The food is so fantastic - comparable to great restaurants I have visited in Seattle and Portland, but for local prices. Fresh, locally sourced food. Can't say enough about this place.

Around the corner from The Murray hotel. We were lucky to get a table because the place was packed. I don't remember what we ate there, but do remember it was the best dinner we had in days. Efficient and friendly staff.

Experienced a truly fabulous catered event and dinner in the hotel and Bistro. Don't think you could experience any better food or service any other "foodie"destination in the US.

This is the restaurant in the Murray Hotel. The food and the service were excellent. They also have a very good wine list. Make a reservation; it's a popular place.

We had a group of four, and all of us enjoyed our meals immensely. Dad got the house-made ravioli of the day, mom the stroganoff, boyfriend the hunter chicken and I got the bolognese; we also shared a salad special. Everything was delicious, and we left very satisfied, filled with great food and decent wine. Service was great - attentive... More

This was my second visit to this restaurant and I was disappointed. Despite having reserved a table four days in advance, we were stuck in a little corner and my back was literally up against the receptionist's stand. The waitress was friendly but busy so there were gaps of no attention. Midway through our salads the staff put together a... More

I have to admit I am not one who ranks steak as my favorite meat (I prefer the best lamb or breast of duck!). However, being in an a part of the U.S. known for the quality of its beef, I ate at least 7 steaks in Mt. And Wy. On a recent holiday. I thought the most delicious was... More

Who would think a first rate French bistro would be found here. Love the creative menu-great selections thanks to the wait staff guiding us through our decisions. Food was so good and the wine paired exactly on. Love this restaurant.

Excellent wait staff. We ate the Bison rib eye special and it was superb not only at dinner, but the best breakfast leftovers I ever had. Pasta dish also great al dente as it should be.

Great French restaurant in Livingston Montana. After more than10 years the quality of the French cuisine has not changed and remains exquisite. Great presentation and attention to detail. The owners chef and wife do a superb job. The Moules and Frites are better than any restaurant in Paris. The New York steak was great and the Steelhead salmon was perfect.... More

Description
2nd Street Bistro opened its doors in the Historic Murray Hotel, Livingston, MT during the spring of 2004. We are rooted in the simple belief that great food and wine make life more enjoyable. Recently highlighted on Anthony Bourdain's "No Reservations", we are also the proud recipients of numerous regional 'Best Of' awards, including "Best Fine Dining", "Best Service", "Best Wine List", "Best Martini" and "Best Chef". Join us for a taste of refined authenticity! Above all else, we are committed to supporting the local economy and sustainable products. Our number one goal is to support our unique community of independent farmers, ranchers, artists, and professionals. If we can buy it locally, we will. If we can't buy it locally, we will seek out sustainable products. When you walk into the Bistro, you can be sure you are making a positive impact on our community and beyond.
