Knowing we wanted to have lunch, and having called and asked for a reservation but told we didn't need one, when we arrived and they were packed, we were asked if we a reservation. Aggh! Only 3 wanted to dine, but we were turned away because we didn't have a reservation .

Great little place on 6th Ave. I didn't expect such a relaxing and tasty mid afternoon lunch. I had a double portion of Roast Beef with Monterey jack cheese and a nice mild horseradish sauce in between two very tasty wheat grain slices of bread called a "Montana Rancher". My side kick had an "Indian Curry with basmati rice" It... More

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! From the moment I got there I was in love. The restaurant is on the historic registry and the inside had exposed brickwork. There was live Jazz music, candles, cloth napkins, the works. The wait staff were very polite and attentive. There's an open kitchen so you can watch your food being made. The wine selection here is... More

We were passing Helena and stopped for the night. I wasn't very happy when I sat down at the place because the restaurant we wanted was closed and drove around for another restaurant. We saw there were many customers even it was late so we took a chance. The food cured me of my grumpiness. The free focaccia bread with... More

This is the perfect spot for lunch or an intimate dinner. Margaret, the owner, works hard to source locally and feature fresh, organic foods. They have a lovely wine menu and often feature live music. You cant go wrong on their soups or desserts

While staying in Helena my husband and I ate at Benny's Bistro one evening. We were just walking past and spotted the piano and guitar duo and were drawn in! The place has a really nice atmosphere and the staff are friendly and the service good. I ate the stroganoff which was really delicious and my husband had a tasty... More

We paid 86 usd with our creditcard and gave her a tip of 20 usd in cash. We were very disappointed to see that afterwards they increased our debetcard amount with 20% to 103 usd on... More

We had dinner here to celebrate my birthday. I have celiac disease and other allergies, so finding a place that can accommodate my needs is always a challenge. The people at Benny's, from the server to the chef, went above and beyond my expectations to make it a tasty and safe meal for me to eat. It's a small place,... More

After living in Helena for 25 years, I finally got a chance to dine at Benny's - I don't know why I waited so long! The food was excellent and our waiter was perfect. We shared some small plates which were perfect sharing size. A pianist arrived and played soft music which was not at all loud enough to interfere... More
