    Great menu - the dilemna was choosing - there was a very well priced spring menu as well but we went with the brocollini to start which was delicious with a tonata sauce - Kimberly had the bison short rib which was outstanding and I had the duck with green curry sauce which sounded quirky but was excellent Liz. A great wine and drinks list as well - we had a bottle of the La Stella Fortissimo which paired perfectly. Great service as well.

    The food was excellent (Caesar Salad, Bison Bolognese, and Bison Short Rib). The service from Steve was amazing. It was a great experience overall for us, especially celebrating my husband’s birthday! Thank you, Bison Restaurant.

The front of house staff were all amazing and friendly, our server did an excellent job. Really great event I hope to see many more in the future!

    An excellent meal enjoyed in a very energetic atmosphere which at times could be quite loud. Hoping to avoid the noise, book in early. The tables are quite close together. The food is fresh, local, and prepared very well. An enjoyable meal.
