My husband and I ate at this restaurant while staying at the Yellowstone Valley Lodge, which itself rated 5 stars. However, this restaurant is not really enjoyable. The food, what there is of it, is very good. The menu consists of a bunch of small disconnected dishes which add up to a very expensive meal. The menu is more suited to people who want to spend 2 to 3 hours drinking wine and eating occasionally than to people who would like a normal dinner with protein and vegetables for a mid range price. I gave the restaurant 3 stars because the food that we did have was good, but the experience was really 1 star. We would stay at the lodge again, but we would not eat at this restaurant again.

We ate here three days in a row. Our service from Sage and Morgan was excellent. They were informed, friendly and helpful. They guided us through the menu. Over the course of our visit, we were able to try just about everything on the menu. Everything was good, but we especially liked the prawn toast, chicken and lamb dishes. Don’t judge this book by its cover! Amazing dishes are coming out of a tiny little kitchen! Our favorite desserts were Frozen Blueberry Cobbler and Sweet Strawberry Cake. The chef is doing innovative, interesting and delicious things here in Emigrant, Montana. Don’t miss it!

Make sure to sit on the covered patio as the inside is bland. The restaurant sits above the Yellowstone River with the mountains as the backdrop. The food is creative although pricey due to the number of dishes you are likely to consume. Kind of a modified tapas style. Good wine and beer list. We had great service.

The scenery is everything. As another reviewer said, they give speeches about how they are a sharing restaurant. And want you to order multiple dishes. I said we don’t want to share. Then the waitress comes over and says the same speech - we are a sharing restaurant. I said we don’t want to share. Portions are very very small. Food is mediocre. Service is terrible. My tiny piece of fish was cold. There were six in our party. One person asked for bread. I said yes I would like bread. She didn’t ask if anyone else would like bread. She comes back and says they are working on the bread. After the meal was over she brings two rolls on two plates. Only the two who asked for a roll got one. Again, the scenery is beautiful and worth it. The restaurant is one of the worst we’ve ever been to. Did I mention the bugs? Ants crawling all over our table. Multiple bugs flying around our table. The doors were open to the outside but still-ants on the table?!
