    I am very thankful for the amazing staff. From the amazing host to the phenomenal server (Veronica) the service is absolutely amazing! For the food however...its a steakhouse. You kind of have to love steak but they also offer great seafood dishes. Overall, the service is always great.

    Got another great table from Opentable this weekend at the Circus Circus a Steak House in Reno, Nevada. It was our 28th Wedding Anniversary, which was what I added in on the reservation form to the restaurant. When we arrived, I purposefully did not bring up the event to see if the correct information went through. At the end of checking in, the matrde wished us a happy anniversary! Everything worked just as it should, thanks to Opentable

    Dined on 10/11/2014
    Made online reservations at 2pm and the earliest available table for two was 6:45 pm. Arrived at restaurant early at 6:15. Was seated right away. Throughout entire dinner, restaurant was only 1/3 full. Frustrating - would have arrived at 6pm. Bread was slightly burnt. Also, sweet bread is generally for desert not as an appetizer. Sides were mediocre. Really don't understand why the pickled cabbage is put on the plate - ruins everything it touches. Chicken was good - crisp with olive oil and lemon butter. Service was OK - somewhat slow for lack of having a full house. Restaurant was OK. I'd give it 2 out of 5 stars.Don't know f I'd go back. Miss Cassidy's at Boomtown. Will likely go to Silver Leagacy's steakhouse next time.

    We bring over 100 people to Reno to bowl at the National Stadium in Sept every year. Sat night we take our close friends to dinner at the Circus Circus Steakhouse. There is usually 12 of us so they give us their private dinner room which is beautiful! We ask for Minh as our server every year because he is the best. He remembers our names, our drinks and what appetizers we like. Their oysters rockafeller is to die for! We have never left hungry or disappointed.

    We bring our family here for dinner whenever we visit Reno. The food is very good, but it is expensive. I am glad they now have a kids menu so we don't have to order a full dinner for the little ones. Our waiter, I forgot his name but he is Chinese, was very attentive. Excellent service. Cannot ask for more.

    While the actual food we ordered was excellent, the additional items on the plate were questionable. Red cabbage and over cooked garlic? A vegetable choice would have been nice. Berringer White Zin $23 a glass, really? Outrageous. I know it cost under $8.00 a bottle. Your entire wine list was hilarious. Most people would probably drink more if you were not gouging them. A very nice place, especially considering it is inside Circus Circus, quite surprised actually but there are certainly some items you should work on. Other than "romantic" listed above there would be no other reason for us to recommend it.

    This is a steakhouse - you know what you are going to get. The steaks were good, the sides were good. And generous. The wine list is decent. We ate the early bird special (we came from the east coast so it didn't seem early). Excellent value - $25 for a very good upscale meal. There weren't many customers in a very large place when we were there. So it was quiet, but frankly a bit depressing.

    I made reservations after receiving an email about this place and a 2 for 1 prime rib dinner coupon. When we got there, the hostess said that offer was no longer available, but she gave it to us any way. The prime rib was one of the best either of us have ever had. Will definitly go back.

    We decided too try this steak house as we live in Reno and look for places to take out of town guests. My friend and I shared a 14 ounce rib eye steak. There was ten dollar split fee. We order a wedge salad which was not a wedge but more like a lettuce salad with vinegarette dressing and a few sprinkles of Roquefort cheese. We barely finished our salads when our steak arrived. The streak was overdone, full of fat and a big disappointment. It was served with mashed potatoes, which were dry and tasted like instant. We had ordered a side of lobster mashed potatoes which were better. We did not realize the meal came with potatoes. My husband had fish, he said it was so so. There are better high end places to spend your money.

    From the time we were met by the Maitre D' at the door untill the time we left great service. The food was fantastic and will go back when I can. If you would like to see what a well run restaurant looks like, this is the place to go. Manager first class person who went out of her way to make sure all our needs were met. The waiter was just an outstanding person.

    Enjoyed the early bird menu as I had a group of 9 for a celebration dinner. Did not enjoy the fact that we were placed at two round tables that we had to ask to push together. I never felt like we were a single group, but two separate parties. That was the one disappointment.

    Celebrated out 18th anniversary at the Steakhouse. It was wonderful. Food was perfectly cooked, wine list goes on and on. Host and hostess went above and beyond to make sure we had a great anniversary and the dessert menu with so many choices it is hard to pick just one. Will be going back soon.

    Outstanding Restaurant! My dinner group of 12 thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The staff was very accommodating and attentive to every detail. Prices were extremely good for a fine dining establishment. Open bar including 2 bottles of wine, 6 appetizers, a few salads, entrees and tip was slightly over $700. I would've expected at least $1000. We'll be back!

    If you want to eat with a bunch of clowns, then go to the Circus Steakhouse. It's designed to be a steakhouse but really is a comical show of the worst the region has to offer. Elephants getting peanuts in the center ring have a more enjoyable time. For a fancier meal go to Golden Corral and save yourself 25 bucks a person.

    The host or manager got mad at us, and told us that there was no way that we could have booked a table in time.. I explained to her that I did it over a week in advance. She told me that she was stressed because there are more people than tables. The whole time we were there there were plenty of tables open. This was not an ideal valentines day reaturant. There was no ambiance or romance feel. The waitor barely spoke to us, and the others rushed around so quickly that I didn't want to get out of our booth. They also forgot to bring us our wine, and we had to ask for it again. I would not refer this resturant to a friend.

    We came in for the 2 for one special and for some reason they said it was not running that day. When I plan a nice meal I do not want to risk a new place at full price, so I seek out special advertisements for new places. The food was good but not outstanding. I can get the same quality of food for much less money and the service did not make up the difference.

    Wonderful service and food from start to finish. Location is a bit quirky in that it's located in the Circus Circus on the same floor as the midway, so the minute you walk out you feel you are at the county fair. They should relocate this gem to a classier spot.

    Overall, I had a pleasant dining experience at the steakhouse. My friend and I had dinner before a show at the events center. We made a reservation and were taken right to our table when we checked in with the hostess. The hostess was very friendly and checked on us several times throughout our meal. I was disappointed that they didn't have a Moscato or a Riesling by the glass so ended up with a Blue Moon. I had a very hard time understanding our server. He was pleasant enough though. I ordered the prime rib which was good. I only gave it 4 stars because the food wasn't hot. The lobster mashed potatoes were good but could have used more lobster. Overall it was a good experience and I'd go back.
