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.

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.

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.

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.

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

It has been a few years since our last visit and so we were excited to dine here again. We were not disappointed. Our server Leslie was very attentive and had an excellent suggestion for wine to accompany our dinner selection. We decided not to have an appetizer because we tend to fill up by the time our main dish arrives. That was a good choice as the portion sizes are generous. We both ordered the blue cheese crusted sirloin with garlic mashed potatoes. So delicious! The lemon tart with a burnt sugar topping was amazing! Needless to say, we can't wait to return!

We had a pre fix 3-course menu with our Groupon, which was great and also unfortunate. Only because we couldn't try an entree or two on the regular menu that we'd really wanted to... However, the pre fix menu was definitely great!! Can't wait to go back and try other items on their menu.

Bad service/ poor attituds from staff/ no people skills/ food was just OK on one meal/ very poor on the other/ over priced /not worth another attempt/ its to bad that people who buy these propertys cant get it running in a positive flow. What a waist - never coming back. lower your pricing/ find better staff members to work it/ pay them better/ maybe you'll find some decent people .Get a better chef/ find a way better hostise and waiter staff as well/ lousie people skills in all positions / went there for my 62 birthday. I could have had a better exsperiance at Taco bell /after spending 100 buck and left very disappointed .And we didn't even have any drinks or deserts
