Wild River Grille does not often serve Brunch but when they do offer it for special holidays we love to make our reservations here. The patio is lovely and overlooks the Truckee River, the food is always wonderful and the service is timely and professional. For Mother's day we enjoyed the eggs Benedict and the bottomless mimosas but the best part to the 3-course prix fix menu was the apple pie with the side of vanilla bean ice cream.

This is a great locaation that I have always wanted to try and it was well worth it! Great food, great service, great view! We ate outside, so I did not see the inside, but if the weather permits, why would you want to go inside when yu can sit by the river and enjoy the fresh air.
Thank you Wild River Grille!

Amazing Sundays Uncorked!
The food and wine pairings are terrific. Highly recommend the Corn & Cod Chowder and the house salad. The live band was great on a lovely spring afternoon.

Oldie but goodie
My wife and I both had the fish and chips (a favorite of ours.) The cod was very moist and the breading not too heavy. Also it did not taste as if it was drowned in oil. The chips were very good, hot and plenty. My MacCallan was a bit more than I usually get, and my wife said the same thing for her wine. Service was good. The only draw back was the rather dark room, but we realized a little late that we could have sat outside as the weather was very nice. We'll certainly go back again, and hope we can sit outside the next time. The restaurant is in an old building in downtown Reno, but it's location on the river makes it very charming.

Our reservation was for 5 PM on a Tuesday for 5 ladies. The hostess expected us & was very pleasant. Our server was pleasant & kind with a good humor. Not crowded but that was our plan. I loved the background music & acoustics were good for our soft talkers! The roast duck, 2 different fish dishes & ravioli were all excellent. Meals were $23-$25 each and the happy hour prices allowed us to splurge a bit on starters. I highly recommend this restaurant & plan to return. Parking meters don't take credit cards/bring lots of coins; River Walk afterwards is great!

Had lunch, great service from Lindsay. Had the burgers and they are great. Love being outdoors by the river.

More people, no problem!
I originally made the reservation for 11 but 3 more showed up. The staff handled it all with grace and we had a lovely evening. Great food and atmosphere.

Wonderful alfresco dining
I had the evening special, panseared sole with grapefruit beurre blanc served with risotto cake and grilled veggies. Great taste and presentation. Live music on the patio was pleasant but did not drown out coversation. Great outdoor dining experience.

Staff, menu, atmosphere and music are a perfect match up.

Food was really good and enjoyed
Food was really good and enjoyed it. My only problem was that the person sitting me forgot or did not put in my Open Table reservation and I got an email two hours after I was there saying they cancelled my reservation. Talked to the manager and they did make it right. I will return when I am in Reno again in the future.

Wild River Grill review
We love to eat in downtown Reno, especially prior to an Aces game or to a performance at the Pioneer Theater Auditorium, and the Wild River Grill is one of our favorite places. Great atmosphere, especially outside. The service has always been very good, and the food is terrific.

Wild River Grille
Our experience was positive. The menu had wonderful selections. We had scallops for appetizer and they were wonderful. We had the pork chop and the filet -- both meals were very fulfilling. Our meals were exceptional in presentation and flavors. Quantity for the price was just right. We enjoyed the good service. There were plenty of staff available to wait on everyone. The chef Joseph Bell needs a huge award for his kitchen creations. We felt the jazz was disappointing -- not enough energy and the performer needs to connect to her audience. We will be back.

We had the Sunday Uncorked menu and the wine and food pairing was perfect. Wonderful service!

It was date night for my wife and I, and at the last minute we picked Wild River Grille, it turned out be, great food, great atmosphere and great service. We look forward to going back

The weather was perfect so the outside patio was crowded and lively. We chose to eat inside with the woodsy decor. We ordered off the starters menu and loved the variety. The chicken salad on crispy won tons was a favorite. The waitress was EXCELLENT and attentive and suggestive without being intrusive. The bartender made a great Mojito and came over to check in. The waitress even rustled up a dish of hot, crispy fries when they were not on the menu. Enjoyable all around.

Sunday lunch at Wild River Grill
4 of us dined on the outdoor patio. Plenty of umbrellas for shade. Very good food and service and
wonderful jazz singer.

Located next to the Truckee River.
Beautiful location for outdoor dining (weather permitting) along the Truckee River in Downtown Reno. We were greeted by the friendly hostess Ashley and served by Steve.Service was excellent and the food delightful. My Idaho Trout was served over couscous and grilled vegetables which richly blended the flavors. My wife selected the Sole special for the evening served over Scalloped Potatos which she fully enjoyed. Mondays are vegetarian night with a special vegetarian dish available.

High quality restaurant
second visit to this restaurant in travels to Reno. Our experience was more mixed mostly due to Hot SummerNights. The downtown was very crowded and the restaurant was noisy. The staff worked hard to maintain their quality of service. Several members of our group had the sole special and remarked that it was excellent

Great ambiance, food and service
Wild River was a great place for my wife and I to enjoy a quiet meal on the Riverwalk. The appetizers were great. The entrees were delicious, Pan-Seared Idaho Trout was not smothered with tons of sauce, as it had a great stand-alone flavor. She had the Halibut, which was done to perfection. Good wine selection, and outdoor patio was nice. Great for a date night.

visiting from out of town
I was not impressed with Reno in general. But my evening at the wild river grill definitely made my stay more enjoyable.

Wonderful outdoor eating
My salad was ver fresh and tasty. The chicken was over cooked.
My husband's sweet potato fries were excellent.

The food was amazing. Service was outstanding. Sitting outdoors with live music to serenade complemented an overall romantic dinner with my sweeetie.

Overall good experience.
The trout was excellent! The salmon was a bit overcooked but still good. It was a bit busy so our server was sometimes absent for a long time. However, the server at the adjoining section refilled our water glasses several times. We will possibly go back next time we are in Reno.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was surprised this place was
pretty much empty except for our table of 6. It was a Wed. evening. Was it a change in chefs I was unaware of? However, everyone was thrilled with their dish....except maybe my brother that only got half a trout. Everyone else received generous portions. My ravioli was very good but I'm still not sure it contained any wild mushrooms as described. The drinks were good and the prices reasonable for the quality of food.
9/17/2013 5:00:00 PM
Fantastic food and great atmosphere. Service was good as well.

Wonderful outdoor lunch experience
The Mediterranean salad was very generous and provided a full meal. The turkey burger was a generous, nicely cooked and seasoned patty on a fresh bun with just enough mushrooms and cheese. The sweet potato fries were a mixed lot of nicely cooked fries and too-well-done fries. Wonderful outdoor dining area enhanced by the beautiful weather on this particular day; indoor dining has been pleasant in the past, as well.

Great dining on the Truckee River
We really enjoyed our experience at the Wild River Grill. Food was very good. The trout which was recommended was beautifully prepared and tasty. Portions were just right with the dinner salad generous but not so big that I was too full for the trout. Three of us shared a dessert (the chocolate tort) which was light and rich at the same time.

This restaurant is a breath of fresh air just a stones throw from all the big casinos and much better food. We had two small plates, a salad and shrimp spicy pasta. It was great. My partner raved about the clams (there were probably 18 in the serving) - since he's from R.I. that's a huge compliment. The scallops were cooked perfectly and the sauce was fab. The beet salad was a good size portion. The pasta was spicy and delicious with plenty of shrimp. I'm going back again tonight the food was so good. Great find in Reno. Service and ambience was excellent.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dining at its best
I'm alway impressed when I go the Wild River Grille with the service, overall ambience and food preparation/selection. This time, I enjoyed the fish tacos which, I like to try at different locations... and these were the best that I have had in a long time.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is the greatest way to spend a Sunday afternoon in downtown Reno. The comfortable atmosphere and assortment of small plates paired with wine make for an ideal experience. Food is creative and tasty, pairings are appropriate, and service is always good. I so love that I don't have to consume a full meal with lots of heavy meats. The amount of food and the $25 price are "Just Right" as Goldie Locks would say. Also, there is an abundance of free parking on Sundays.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
My sister and I do not have the opportunity to get together often. So, when I asked her to pick a nice restaurant for dinner she chose Wild River Grille based on her lunch experience here. She made a fantastic choice! Our server, Brandon, was awesome. He checked on us enough to ensure we had everything we needed but not so much as to be overbearing. He was friendly and prompt and I would delight in having him serve us again. The wine list held sis' favorite wine, the food was portioned nicely and tasted amazing. I am in love with this place now. Congratulations on winning a permanent fan!

A night with Broadway
We had a wonderful evening. The food was amazing and Steve made us feel like we were the only one's there. We had a 6 pm reservation and the show didn't start until 8 and the timing was perfect. We have been before and we will definitely be back. Thank you for making this such a special evening.

We had a large group for a post UNR graduation lunch. They had everything ready and were very willing to be flexible with our exact arrival time. Food was good and reasonably priced. Overall a very nice choice.
