Menu was country French ranging from steak and frites to cassoulet. Besides the individual items , there was a fixed price menu with optional wine pairings. Majority of wines were French but our server was very knowledgeable and recommended an excellent reasonably priced wine. We enjoyed it so much that we ordered a second bottle. Appetisers were excellent especially the mussels. We could have made a main course out of them. The onion soup gratinee was perfect. Some of the dishes featured duck confit which was done especially well, tasty and fell off the bone.
The ambiance is lovely. Quiet and not too busy. The food is usually good, but this time missed the mark. Nonetheless, wine and cocktails were great.
Window seating during winter months is cold and drafty.
We often find that our visits are received with inconsistent meal preparation. This visit was spot on! An excellent meal and well enjoyed. :)
This place is beautiful- cozy. Great location, and food is amazing. With all that said, it’s very expensive! Not a
Place I could afford too often
Super-Authentic French bistro atmosphere and menu.
We had a good meal - the appetizer was duck liver (Excellent) and Grille Mussels (Excellent) . The entrees of lamb and the daily cassoulet were good but not great. Wine was really good and our server Chiloe was very friendly and helpful. We have been several times and will go back.
Ordered price fix menu and very disappointed. For the $400 we ended up spending, we were very disappointed, except for the wine - it was very good. Also, food was served too quickly, even though we said we wanted to take our time. When I called to say we might be 5 minutes (which we were not) late because I wanted to make sure we didn't lose our table, I was told that there was another booking an hour and half later????? Felt like cancelling, then and it turns out, I should have! Unfortunate, because the food used to be great!
Went to the Beaujolais Bistro on a Friday night for a romantic dinner. It was an excellent choice that was a nice change from the casino steakhouses. The atmosphere was amazing, such a cute little house, we loved how the room was decorated also. Service was excellent, our waitress was attentive but also made herself scarce when not needed. We were also able to take our time and never felt rushed. The food was all excellent, there was a fixed price menu offered but we went our own route. The appetizer we chose, a goat cheese tartine, was our only regret. While good, it didn't feel as elevated as everything else we ate. The flavors were sort of muddled. Overall a great time and an easy restaurant to recommend!
Top dining experience in Reno.
One of the few gourmet restaurants in Reno.
This was our "go to" favorite restaurant before they expanded and moved to a new location. We were seated at 6:20. The waitress finally took our order for cocktails a half hr after we were seated. On our reservation my husband noted it was my Birthday. He again casually mentioned it to our waitress. Our order for dinner and appetizers was not taken until 7:10 or 7:15. and then we waited and waited and finally I got up to use the ladies and asked the waitress about our meal this was 8:00. First food showed up about 5 minutes later. The steak and frites were so tough it was impossible to cut the meat let alone chew it. (They did take it off the bill, but that is not the point) After waiting almost 2 hrs. for food and then getting truly mediocre food, never a mention of my Birthday. 6:15 to 9:15 just way too long for a Tuesday night dinner, with terrible food and condescending waitress leaves us wondering why we should return.
One of our best French meals ever, and thats saying a lot since we had just returned from two weeks skiing in the French Alps. Their onion soup is absolutely delicious. We lucked out because Beef Wellington (with filet mignon) was on the special fixed price menu that night & we were able to order it a la carte (can't eat 3 courses - too much food for us). Anyone who likes Beef Wellington knows its hard to find a restaurant that serves it. The service was great & it was relatively uncrowded because it was a weeknight. Wonderful evening.
We loved our experience and were very accommodating. We started as a large group and ended up with just 2. Food was spectacular. Will be back. Can’t wait🏅
My husband and I had a great night! Lee was our waiter and he took excellent care of us and made wonderful recommendations for our dinner! The food was amazing! The cauliflower soup was so rich and creamy, I could eat that everyday! We don’t get a lot of nights to ourselves, so having such a wonderful meal in such a great place being help by the superb staff made our night perfect!!
Convenient, local, always great exceptional food!
Very French menu but not too rich and with a contemporary flair. Truly the most delicious salad we've ever had. They split-plated the salad which we didn't remember to ask for. For us, split-plating always makes for a better experience. Delightful server, too.
We were introduced to this restaurant by friends who joined us for dinner. It was a remarkable expierence. The food, service and ambiance were great. These were joined by a beautiful snowfall and a fireplace that made it a winter joy. One in our party has several allergies and the chef prepared her meal perfectly. Highly recommended and can’t wait to return.
We received a recommendation to dine here from some friends. The experience was wonderful especially the food and the service. The only negative (and the reason why I gave it only four stars) is they started a fire in the fireplace. The smoke was so bad it was making everyone's eyes burn. Staff opened windows, but then it got real cold inside and many people had to put on jackets. We left smelling like a campfire.
We had a wonderful double date night. Service was above and beyond, and food was excellent as always. The meat preparations never disappoint here.
Celebrated our anniversary there and hadn't been there since Beaujolais was on West Street. Food was fine but not great...service was good..ambiance ok but very noisy. All things considered...especially the price, there are several other restaurants in Reno that are a superior overall.
Our experience was wonderful! The food was excellent and the re-purposed Craftsman style house very attractive and comfortable. Also the wait staff was friendly and helpful.
I particularly appreciated the "mocktail" and dairy-free options. Even the dessert menu included a dairy-free selection: delicious sorbet.
We'll be back!
Friends anniversary- got no frills.
Great place. It’s my go to spot when I take the wife out for a nice dinner.
Fourth time here, first three times were all amazing. This time the staff seemed burdened by our being there. But more disappointing was that the food (excluding the onion soup, which is always delicious) was barely edible.
Great disapointment on Valentine's Day. We had a reservation for 7:30 made months in advance. But, restaurant had not organized around actual reservations, just times where groups of people arrived. There was a crowd waiting by the door with cold blasts of air every few minutes. We finally got a space at the bar to try to have a drink at 8:10. We sat there another 10 minutes and the bartender never came to take drink order and we still didn't get a table to sit and eat. We left at 8:20 and went to find some food elsewhere. We were not the only 7:30 party who had not yet been seated for dinner. There was no attempt to mitigate the wait with appetizers or drinks and no offer of a discount. This was not a good way to celebrate Valentine's Day. For a very expensive and experienced restaurant this was an unprofessional and mismanaged mess.
Fantastic as always, just thought it was funny they didn’t have ANY reference to Mardi Gras?
This was our first time and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Ambience is warm and a “homey” neighborhood feel topped by a fantastic meal.
Fantastic as usual. Had the scallops with lobster and noodles.
This was our third time to have dinner and it did not disappoint; the wait staff and bartender took great care of us, the food was delicious and we left happy! We will be back.
Our first dinner last year was memorable beyond words. This experience was so different. Our table (with a reservation) was 35 minutes late. Service was even slower. Two in the party had steaks, which were served cold. We wanted to order more drinks, but could never get server's attention. I doubt we will be back any time soon.
Arguably the best restaurant in Reno. The food was delectable. The portion sizes are perfect, the wine was amazing, the service was outstanding, and the ambiance was great. I’m still in awe of the delicious food.
The food is fantastic but mark up on alcohol is steep.
Great food and service . An excellent wine list and a nice ambiance make for a good date night.
The food was good but not up to their usual standard. The sweetbreads were way too spicy. We like the way they have been cooking them for years in the past. We will definitely go back for another special occasion.
Beaujolais is rapidly becoming our birthday/anniversary tradition. The service is impeccable, the meals are deliciously crafted and, on a quieter night, the setting is cozy. Outside dining, with the surrounding lawn and river across the street, is also a treat.
Amazing food and atmosphere perfect for our anniversary dinner
We came back this year to celebrate our daughter’s birthday, after enjoying ourselves last year!
It’s pricey, but cozy, relaxed and delicious.
First of all - it was New Years Eve - so probably unusually busy. While the food was very good - 3 of the 6 people received their main course cold. This is really not acceptable in a restaurant like Beaujolais. It can - and did- happen But attention to detail should be routine here. We have dined here twice before when in Nevada - and enjoyed both other times
But I would have to say - this was not up to expectation. -
Waitress Jana was prompt, knowledgeable and friendly. A real pro!
