Small restaurant, but thankfully open in winter. Out of the ordinary menu and all courses beautifully cooked and very tasty. Sad we didn't get to go back again this trip. Reserve a table in summer as I think it will be busy.

This is a tiny, sophisticated bistro serving hand-made local cuisine with a European touch. There is only one waitress and one cook, so settle in for an extended dining experience (NOT fast food). We ate there twice during our stay and it was great both times, despite the fact that our group took up about half the seats.

After one too many pub and pizza joints for dinner while traveling, we wanted to eat fresh, real food. Serenity Bistro was perfect! The restaurant is small and comfortable. Service was impecable. Ordered the elk with a blueberry sauce and the twice-baked quail. Wow! Both entrees were more than delicious and cooked to order. Quail came with couscous, the elk... More

Allie at the Euro Cafe (sister restaurant open for breakfast and lunch) suggested Serenity Bistro for dinner. We also found it to be small and inviting with excellent, professionally prepared food. We ate every bit of the caprese salad, pan seared chicken, and house special pasta so we unfortunately did not have room for dessert. Breakfast at Euro Cafe and... More

Our large group of nine happily dined here and we all left happy! We ordered the crostini and the spinach dip for appetizers, superb. The clam chowder was some of the best we had ever tasted. Salads were fresh and satisfying. But the real star of the meal was the wild game entrees - quail, elk and bison. Each well... More

A large group was handled very well and food was very good. A good departure from most of the other restaurants in the area that are more pub/pizza type establishments. Chocolate Lava Cake was outstanding and if you like darker chocolate offerings for desert then you don't want to pass this option by. Creme Brûlée was also very good.

We were in West Yellowstone for a photography workshop. On Tuesday we asked our guide for a recommendation for dinner since it was my wife's birthday. Our driver told us that Serenity Bistro is where him and his wife like to go on their anniversary. First off the food was fantastic. My wife had the elk medallions with a blueberry... More

If you are traveling from a big city, you have to adjust expectations in a small town (less than 900 people in the winter) like West Yellowstone. Something described as a French bistro might not be as authentic as you'd expect in the city, and the chef might not even be French or have any real French training. Who knows?... More

Lovely fresh food and welcoming staff in a great and friendly town. Our meal was the best we had during a tour of Montana and Utah.

A family run establishment with a great atmosphere, good service and super food. A limited menu, but nothing to be sniffed at. Something for everyone. A pleasurable meal, enjoyed by all.
