I was spending the week in Livingston and I had chosen 2nd Street after reading other reviews on trip advisor. I was not disappointed. The service was both friendly and professional. The wine list was great, the special cocktail list was fun, featuring locally distilled liquors. And the food was great. Not just something you throw on the grill, but... More

This is an amazing place with amazing, (mostly) local foods. The service is exceptional, with great portions of fanastic food, tucked away in a little, Montana community. If anywhere around here or traveling through, this is a must stop. The bakery around the corner is fantastic as well if you're around for breakfasts! The bartenders and servers are very friendly,...

Everything I've gotten from here has been great except the Bolognese. Noodles were under-cooked and the flavor was not bad but really lacking compared to other things I've had here. The service, other menu items, desserts and drinks still make this a great place to go. The turtle Cheesecake with salted caramel is my favorite.

A lovely family birthday dinner celebration began with extraordinary hospitality that made our entire group feel right at home. The menu is very diverse with something for everyone. A lovely wine list and flavorful food created artfully.

The is a very nice restaurant with good food. My husband did have to return his escargot that was tasteless. Service was very good and friendly for the end of a very busy day.

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.
