One can tell they have an exceptional chef as the menu is well paired and everything was perfectly cooked. Example: pork belly with Brussels sprouts, even the Brussels sprouts were great! Not just good, great! Calamari, generous tentacles, tender, great sauce. I would go back just for the calamari. I had Bison short ribs and my wife had halibut, both very good. We book "date nights" and stay at the hotel and we will return here.
Just a tad pricey for us but well worth the price when we do make it. Guess that's what makes it so special for us when we do make it. Always our first choice for special dining.
Food was very good and the service just excellent. We will return on a more frequent basis as it will become our go to spot for quality. The saloon was packed when we arrived and we had hoped for a seat as it is first come first serve. However, there is no means to determine who is first and who is second while waiting. We were about to take a table when another group came out of no where and declared themselves next in line and simply seated themselves. In the future we will simply avoid the bar.
Very relaxing atmosphere. Service and food were very good.
Amazing Steaks! So tender you can cut them with your fork. The Sauces are to die for. Garlic Mashed Potatoes very creamy. Drinks are outstanding. The Avocado Wasabi Shrimp Cocktail was to die for. We requested Luke to serve us because he is an amazing Server. Busser was also very well trained. Love this Restaurant!
Great place to eat! I will be coming back here again!
The food was delicious. The menu is very limited but the choices are excellent. Only concern of mine was the $9 for about three fingers of wine, but it was good. We stayed the night at the adjoining motel, and used the adjoining hot springs for a excellent experience.
Good food and ability to enjoy the hotsprings, sauna, and steam room.
1862 is our favorite restaurant to celebrate Life's special moments! The food is always outstanding, the presentation, taste, everything! A large wine selection as well. Luke is the most amazing waiter! We feel like family when we sit at his table. His timing is impeccable, paying attention to every detail to make your evening unforgettable! The atmosphere inside is old world, lots of wood, and beautiful stone work. The outside surrounding and views are beautiful as well! Hard to beat!
It had been 15 or so years since our last visit. The service was just as good now as it was then. The food as always was excellent. The building was just as classy but seemed bigger. Funny how a space can be large but cozy. I had forgotten how nice the hot springs were.
Celebrating my wife's birthday with friends, started in the bar for drinks before dinner. Small band playing, which was fun, little hard for conversation though. We were seated by the window to view the marshland and watch the Canadian geese activities. Nice setting.
Food was great, service was great as well.
Very clean and very professional .
Anniversary dinner, wonderful service! Great atmosphere!
Only downfall was very limited menu
Awesome - great place.
This was my second time at the restaurant. I think the first time was better! We ordered stuffed jalapeños appetizer and the cream cheese inside wasn't warmed through. Last time we had crab cakes and they were amazing. I ordered the pasta from the fixed price menu and it was delicious both times. My boyfriend ordered the sirloin both times and it was cooked to perfection. The desserts aren't mind blowing but overall a good dining experience.
Service was slow. Food was mediocre at best. Lamb was served cold. Not cold like it sat too long, cold as in straight out of the fridge. But they promptly warmed it in the microwave when I complained rendering it inedible. Overcharged at every opportunity.
Dinner was very enjoyable. I love that they had a kids menu and fine dining at the same time.
Service was good, although my note that it was an anniversary went not noticed. Corkage fee is a bit high at $15.
Food, service and environment was amazing. The husband and I love coming here for special occasions.
Sons 35 birthday. Didn’t realize they closed at 9pm. Kinda felt rushed.
Great place to enjoy a special occasion
As usual, the food, service and setting was outstanding! A dip in the hot springs and dinner at Walley's can relax the most tense body and fill it with a delicious meal and glass of wine. From the pasta to the steaks and seafood, we have never been disappointed in our meals. The bread pudding for desert is a must have.
Seating next to glass enclosure. Light snow falling while we enjoyed our meal. Very romantic. WOnderful service.
Really nice restaurant and service. Worth it after afternoon in Hot Springs.
Had a Groupon for the price fix menu. Food tasted great.
Great atmosphere in Genoa up against the Sierras. The bar scene was excellent with a band playing seventies music. Food was excellent and prices weren't bad. I would recommend it to friends and clients.
Food was actually pretty good. Service was slow and felt rushed. Beautiful dining room and ambiance although background music would improve this greatly. Used a living social deal but hostess did not communicate with server and had to redo the bill.
Great waiter, great food, great service. I would love to go back
This is a cozy, romantic restaurant serving wonderful steaks and seafood. The 3-course menu is superb. It is expensive, but worth it.
The menu was varied and extensive; a separate three-course, prix fixe menu for $39 each also was available with three appetizer, entree and dessert options. Service was impeccable and ambiance was quite nice.
My boyfriend and I had an amazing time and the food was beautifully displayed and delicious!
Excellent dinner and Luke made the entire experience wonderful
we like the bar and outside fire pit. Try the ribs or the French dip.
the dining room is more romantic. Sea Bass and steak were excellent.
Absolutely the Best Food I have ever tasted! Steak was Buttery Tender and Seasonings pop in your mouth. Generous portions. Mashed Garlic Potatoes to die for. Shrimp Cocktail delicious. Waiter Luke was fabulous! Desserts and Cocktails very creative. Can't wait to return.
Had such a great dinner this past weekend. We were early from our reservation and they did their best to accommodate us. The food was amazing, wine list was perfect and the staff was wonderful as always, Luke and team are my favorites to see, they always exceed our expectations. Looking forward to next months dinner!
What a wonderful date night @1862davidwalleys. I had the braised lamb shank with risotto. Everything was absolutely devine. The lamb shank just fell away from the bone. The creamy risotto was perfectly seasoned. I just love this place. If you can go and have dinner I highly recommend that you do. #datenight #dinner #glutenfree #foodie #foodporn
Went for my 50th birthday. The food was wonderful but when it came time for dessert we were forgotten. About 30 mins later our server informed us that our dessert had been served to someone else. Overall it took 40 mins to get dessert which in turn took our tome to enjoy the hot springs after dinner which was disappointing. Food was amazi g but that definitely took from our enjoyment
Nice and kid friendly. Super staff , food was good and just a short walk from our room. Fine dining, but also offered a kid's menu.
Always worth the drive! Combine this with a trip to the soaking tubs and it's an amazing getaway.
Best prime rib I have ever tasted. Have had better salmon. Great service.
