Since 2016, South 9th Bistro has been recognized as Bozeman’s Best Restaurant by TripAdvisor®. In 2020, and again in 2021, South 9th Bistro received TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice Award - recognition that South 9th is amongst the top 10% of TripAdvisor® restaurants worldwide.

At South 9th Bistro, we are fully engaged with, and committed to, providing each and every one of our customers with excellent experience. Our talented culinary and service professionals fully understand and provide all that is needed for a great evening out.

South 9th is in town, but not downtown - a gastronomic oasis off the beaten path. Easily accessible – a scenic drive from the south through the Gallatin Canyon, or a short hop east from the airport west, an evening at South 9th Bistro is the cherry on top of the perfect Montana day.

Easy to find, by day by its pumpkin orange Victorian façade, and by night, by the amber glow of its windows with the warmth and comfort of the space within, an evening's experience with South 9th Bistro is a Montana highlight that should not be missed.


Indoor seating at the Bistro is available on both its main and second floors, while seasonal, outdoor seating, is available on the building’s naturally-shaded patio. The Bistro’s main floor has a more open and active feel, while the second floor is a bit cozier and more intimate. A private dining area that comfortably seats 11 is also available on the second floor.

South 9th Bistro’s menu features a selection of French-inspired and American plates (including gluten-free and vegetarian options), scratch-made and deftly executed.

Our palette of palate-pleasing appetizers includes: our fresh-cut, parmesan-dusted Idaho Truffle Fries, our Prosciutto-wrapped Sea Scallops, drizzled with a lush, lemon-caper beurre blanc, our Escargots, adrift in butter, garlic and parmesan, served with crusty baguette, and, everything in between.

Entrées at South 9th include a selection of expertly prepared steaks, seafood, and more, featuring: our signature, center-cut, 9oz Steak au Poivre, seared to order, served with delectable dauphinoise potatoes, our Coquille St. Jacques, with sea scallops seared to perfection, our fork-tender, braised 22+oz Lamb Shank, served with garlic-mashed red potatoes and a scrumptious rosemary-red wine demi-glace, and, everything in between.

Beyond the steaks, seafood and non-vegetarian plates, the Bistro’s menu features a selection of luscious vegetarian plates, including: our Ratatouille, served in a crispy panko eggplant pirogue with creamy polenta and sautéed haricots verts, our opulent Black Truffle Wild Mushroom Risotto, and our sublime Roasted Butternut Squash Ravioli, served with a sumptuous sage-marsala sauce and perfectly grilled asparagus.

Last but never least, our house-made desserts - toothsome treats to complete a fine meal on a decidedly indulgent note. Dessert details, as well as our full Dinner and Wine and Beer menus, may be found here.

South 9th Bistro is open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday evenings, from 5:00pm. Take-out order requests may be placed during these hours, and will be satisfied, as possible, given dine-in demand. Reservations are recommended at all times, and necessary after 8:00pm.
