    Walking through the lounge I wasn’t s.ire what were we were going to eat, in a lounge or dining room. We did walk into a open dining room. Service was excellent. Food was excellent. One member of our group had many things he could not eat so was asking more many changes. Waitress never blinked showing she was used to these requests. That member said it was one of the best meals he has had. Nothing bad to report. A little noisy due to closeness to open lounge next door

    We really love this place but our recent visit was very disappointing. Wife had the short ribs which were good. That plus our server Avery earn 5+ stars. Now for the 1 star part. I had the cioppino. I will have to claim false advertisement on this one. They say there is king crab and clams in it but both (especially the king crab) were virtually non existent. The so called broth was much closer to a marinara consistency. Flavor was ok. Scallops had zero sear to them. We will come back but the cioppino will not be ordered.

    We were traveling through and decided to stay the night at the Atlantis and went here for dinner. Placed our order. As we waited my husband and I had a drink. Our waiter Sherman even brought us a sampler of a tuna appetizer. He was amazing for most of the dinner service until he broke a wine glass as he had just placed our dinner down on the table. I had a piece of glass hit me in the face. We ate our dinner. I had ordered the lump crab corn chowder. It was amazing for what I ate. I was very paranoid that I had glass in my soup. I did not finish it. He did also bring out for dessert strawberry shortcake for our anniversary and birthday.

    Crab chowder was so bomb. My husband had the filet n lobster so worth it. The lobster was huge, we thought it was placed in its shell but it was all lobster. Crab cakes was amazing. We celebrated our anniversary and my husband’s birthday. We will sure be back when in town again.

    The food has always been great, along with the ambience. It was quite busy last night and the service for our table was a little slow...although maybe that was on purpose? Otherwise the waitstaff was impeccable and we enjoyed everything!

    The restaurant is an elegant setting and bar is a great place to sip your favorite cocktail or beer. Our waiter Michael was excellent and David his assistant was also very nice. Food was amazing. We would recommend this place to anyone who is in Atlantis Resort or just wants to come for the food.

    Outstanding meal and service. Best restaurant in Reno. Start with half price apps. and drinks in bar area, inc. Premium wines by the glass. Meals start with a chef special sample. Ours was a marscapone stuffed pepper. Delicious. The lobster escargot was amazing and should not be missed. Meal ended on a fun note with cotton candy to every table. Great place.

    First time ever at the Napa Bistro that I had to send back my dinner. It was bad fish and bad crab. The oysters were suspect as well. Otherwise, everyone enjoyed the great service and most of the other food.

    Bistro Napa is our most favourite restaurant in Reno. We had the best server in Sherwin. I highly recommend Sherwin if you dine here. He’s very knowledgeable regarding wine pairings and recommendations. Service was impeccable. Food was spot on. I ordered the Chilean Sea Bass, my husband ordered the Colorado Lamb Chops. And you cannot eat here without ordering their Sexy Fries. Highly recommend Bistro Napa and Sherwin.

    We came out to celebrate my birthday and we're not disappointed. Enjoyable experience from the onion rolls, to the amusé to the cotton candy. The Halibut with Prawns and crab mashed potatoes really should be a regular entrée. This was a celebration I won't soon forget.?
