    We had the absolute best experience at the Butterhorn. The staff was superb, the food was amazing, and we got in right away at our reservation time. I learned that it is best to make a reservation as their chefs prepare food for you and they have a high standard of service, both in the food quality and the experience that each guest has. Reservations allow the staff to prepare for you and also make sure they have enough menu items for all. Each and every staff member was excellent and it was evident that they care for their guests and the experience that they have. I hope that the staff knows how much we appreciate them and that the heart that they put into their job !

    Butterhorn is one of the best restaurants we have ever enjoyed! What a lovely surprise in Bismarck ND, of all places. We were in town from Mpls for a family event and this wonderful spot was recommended. The service was amazing and the food....perfection! Starting with the delicious Butterhorn rolls and beautifully crafted cocktails, it just got better and better. The Bison Tartare was the best tartare I have tasted, and the Pasta Verde Gnudi is a dish not to miss. My sons are both in the wine business and they were quite impressed with the wine list and the food. We were able to visit with the chef, Stephanie, and she was delightful. We wish this restaurant every success in the days and years to come. Do not miss it!

    Another anniversary celebration at the Best Restaurant in town. Shane and is staff are so welcoming. Our waitress (Ashley) was the best. Very attentive and a such a happy disposition. Our food was amazing. From the Butterhorns to the gazpacho soup to the filet mignon to the pork tenderloin. Since it was our anniversary, we were treated to a free dessert. We had a flourless chocolate cake with an olive oil ice cream. It was delicious! Thank you again for a fabulous evening. Highly recommend this restaurant!

    Butterhorn has surprised me in a good way once again! The Brunch menu corn beef hash is not the corn beef hash most people are used to and I would absolutely recommend that a person try it. It was marvelous and the chimichurri sauce was a wowser. The mimosas were excellent and of course the Butterhorn croissants continue to be the best I’ve ever had.

    A nice surprise as we traveled thru Bismark. Walleye cakes and BBQ beef cheecks & cornbread were both very good. The beef cheek BBQ was unique and a fun riff on traditional BBQ.

    Every aspect of dinner was great! The only complaint would be that we did not know the Filet had peppercorn seasoning which was fine except my wife does not like peppercorn on steak. Waitress should let customers know if the dish is not being prepared as stated on menu!

    The restaurant is selling itself as a fine dining experience. The prices are as high as they possibly can be. ($20 appetizers) Yet the staff are wearing blue jeans, and all have different color and style of tops. Essentially they are all in street clothes of their choice. So it looks very unprofessional as you watch the staff moving throughout the restaurant. The food was good, but not worth the $120 bill for two without dessert or tip. Also last but not least, wanted a 6:30 pm reservation but only had 6:00 available. Upon arrival and during dinner there were at least 6 tables open with no customers seated, so there was plenty of room for 6:30 reservations. (Multiple) You might say maybe they don't have staff like everyone. I would say NO, they had 3 waitress's covering like 8 tables and no one was running around working to hard or not being able to keep up. Just an opinion. We ending up walking 4 blocks to the east and had dessert at another restaurant.

    Really great time and lovely wine list. Shrimp was different and amazing. Blackened mahi Mahi was super spicy, too much actually. The ItalianChop salad was delicious and the fig cheese was different but really Godo! Needs more fig! We loved the food, but a few items were a little off this time: Mahi too spicy to eat, eggplant was great but a Tod too much cheese stuffing. We had a wonderful time overall and Jill took great care of us!

    Very good experience from service, to drinks to food! Highly recommend. Felt prices were very fair. Food came out perfectly. Longer dinner, but in a good way. I didn’t care for the dessert (Macha panna cotta) but it was gorgeous looking and fun to try something different. I had the carrot-ginger soup and verde gnudi to eat. Our waitress knew the menu very well and was so professional! My friend left her phone at our table and they texted me because they had my number from the reservation and we were able to turn around and get it before we got too far. Definitely above and beyond!

    The description of the food was misleading. Pork was good in the Adobe dish, but the menu said spinach. There was only sprinkles of spinach and no veggies. The menu also said black & white rice, but it was purple and overpowered with cumin and other spices. The garden chicken dish side was flavored well but the inside of the zucchini was slimy and it almost seemed like the chicken wasn't fresh.
