Charlie Palmer Steak - Reno
Excellent experienceWonderful and delicious food, gorgeous presentation and generous portions for the price. The restaurant was beautiful. Don't forget dessert! I had the best cheesecake in my life there.
The staff was attentive. The waitresses were on top of their game. We enjoyed the bartender. We have sat and talked to him before. The wine steward was excellent.
Cocktails are seriously overpriced. Get your before dinner drinks somewhere else first.6/16/2013 12:00:00 AMToo Slow ServiceThis was an outstanding steak house. Too bad the timing and speed of service suffered. Our group of 6 arrived at 6pm, well ahead of any rush. We had an 8:30pm show to see, thinking we had way to much time to kill. By 7:45, I begged for the dessert menus, and told them we needed to be out of there, with check paid, by 8:15 (the show was in the same building). By 8:08, still no sign of desserts and I asked again. The manager carried some of them out, trying to apologize, saying enjoy. Instead, I frowned and said we have no time to eat or enjoy them, making the ending of a great meal quite sour. We scarfed what we could and had to run. And the main meal was so great. Too bad the ending.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food and service lousy dessertOur dinner was excellent and the service was even better. Very fast and the waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful. The only thing that suffered was our cheesecake. It wasn't very good and was served on a hard graham cracker.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMService at its bestTwo words describe the highlight of our evening out: amazing service! There were multiple waiters/servers/managers who were paying close attention to our every need. All were incredibly friendly, as well, taking time to ask us questions and chat just the right amount without being too much. The meal finale was a specialty dessert offered to us in celebration of a birthday, which was far above our expectations. Excellent dining experience!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMdelicious!All the servers were great. Never left thirsty never forgotten. The food was awesome! Melt in your mouth steaks great tasting sides and delicious desserts. We got an interesting chilled soup ginger and honeydew and some mini bread loafs to take home.I would definitely eat here again.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this placeOur favorite in Reno..Outstanding food. Great deals for Ladies Night......5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMSteakhouse highendAbsolutely fine aged steak with sides that compliment the meal. The service was unbelievable with no less than 5 different people serving our every need. We purchased a $50 for $25 certificate from the Hotel with our stay. The servers were all above and beyond our expectations. We had the 42 oz Porterhouse for 2. great table-side presentation, and perfectly cooked.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAlmost got it rightWhile the food was excellent, the service staff seems disorganized. The services wasn't bad, food was delivered in a timely manner someone was close by if you needed anything, but it was a bit annoying. They assigned three servers to our table. One to take the order, one to server the food and one to ??. During the meal, each of the three servers asked us is we were enjoying the meal multiple times, a total of 7 or 8 times. I get it that they are concerned and want to make sure the food was prepared to our satisfaction,but I would rather only be asked once or twice, by the server who took our order and not his helpers. There was a mix up with the wine and it took a long time to get our wine.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome staff!The food was very well prepared! I had the Lamb and it was cooked to perfection. The only complaint with anything the house Cabernet was $10 for a 3oz pour.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful dining. Servicewonderful dining. Service was outstanding and food excellent. Wine pairing excellent as well. Overall great experience will look forward to having another opportunity to dine at a Charlie Palmer restaurant again. mrm4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food, wine and serviceThe food, wine and service was excellent. We had requested a table in the back to be away from the casino noise. Surrounding was also very nice until the party of guys in the back room became super loud and obnoxious. This had a ricochet effect on other dinners and they in turn started to talk and laugh louder to be heard. Management did take care of the problem but only after we pointed it out to them.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is excellent andThe food is excellent and their attempt to keep the prices down by including a house salad and a side with the entree makes for a very nice meal. All portions are generous and nicely prepared. The Staff treats us like old friends although we only dine a few times a year. The little extras that arrive for the table makes the evening even more special. A very nice wine list that truly includes reasonably priced bottles as well as wines by the glass. The CP champagne is exceptional. A lovely touch was the Banana's Foster prepared as usual tableside - but with an updated preparation of an old, but in this case not dated steakhouse favorite.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI'm from Cali, finally Fois Gras!Wow! The food was awesome! I ordered the Fois Gras appetizer and almost fell off my chair! It was delicious especially since my wife and I live in California and can no longer get Fois Gras. I ordered the Duck entree and my wife ordered the "natural" prime filet..both were very good. Service was good as well. It was a little on the expensive side but I would definitely recommend this steakhouse..4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe cuisine was superb, staffThe cuisine was superb, staff was attentive and friendly,and great ambiance. One of the best meals that we have had in a long time.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat seemed to be our primaryWhat seemed to be our primary waiter, they work in teams here, had a lot of attitude. He was a bit disrespectful. I like the food here, but I wouldn't return just because of him. There are too many good options on the Reno dining scene to bother with the risk of getting him again as out waiter.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMCharlie Palmers made our anniversarCharlie Palmers made our anniversary very special! We plan to make this a tradition!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's been a couple of yearsIt's been a couple of years since hubby and I made the trip here.Since our last visit, they have now changed format to a side and salad or soup being included instead of an add on. Food and service was exceptional as always. The only issue was the fact that there was a table with 3 adults and about 5 kids and the kids wer enot on their best behaviour for the environment. Of course being in a casino hosting a conference/event where many children are involved, it wasn't exactly surprising.
Will definitely visit again!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMService was exceptional. FoodService was exceptional. Food was plentiful and delicious. The sides are definitely large enough to share and the variety is such that you feel that you have been at a buffet. Our only comment was that the steak were very flavorful but a bit chewy-both the filet and the rib eye. Although we ate in the dining at night, our server was kind enough to allow one of the children to order off the lounge menu. We all agree we would definitely return when in the area.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe wife and I had a subperbThe wife and I had a subperb evening, couldn't have had a better time anywhere else.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great time. We wereWe had a great time. We were warmly greeted and taken care of by our server, Rick. We were celebrating an anniversary and appreciated the special attention we were shown. The chimmichurri sauce for the steak is delicious! We also tried the duck which was great. Recommend the Beet salad as well. The only complaint I would have is it is not that intimate of a dining room, overall though it was a great experience!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMI cant' say enough about theI cant' say enough about the friendly atmosphere at Charlie Palmers..
From the reception gal to the bus boys, absolutely welcoming. Our waitress, Angelina, and her partner, Erewyn, were genuinely gracious and kind. The food was just perfect, especially the onion soup.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you are looking for a largeIf you are looking for a large meal this is the place to go, portions are very large.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingthe only reason i gave 4 out of 5 stars is because they didn't have a red meat choice in a reasonable price range. both of our meals were fish and it was outstanding, they also offered a vegan menu for those interested. i would have ordered a steak if there was something small and priced better. great restaurant, very surprised3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our second visitThis was our second visit and we chose to have the same thing, a 42 oz Porterhouse steak dinner for two. The steak was perfect! We ordered a side of fries, mushrooms, and brussle sprouts. The sides we're Okay, not great like they we're last time. The house salad was yummy. The service was very good. They have multiple people serving the same tables, a little weird and not as intimate as one really good server but t it does make you feel pampered.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service and food wereThe service and food were both excellent. My wife and I enjoyed the entire dining experience immensely and will be back again soon for another memorable meal.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMCharlie Palmer's Reno exceededCharlie Palmer's Reno exceeded my expectations for the evening.
