Literally one of the best meals I’ve had in years. The customer service was out of this world fantastic and the ambience the staff the decor the food, all of it was so awesome

We went for Mother’s Day and now I can’t do anything but think of going back and what I’m gonna eat next time

We had the
Cheese artisan plate
Caprese salad
Combo seafood cocktail and
Chilean sea bass for our meal

I have never had sea bass done that perfectly ever
It was one of the best plates I’ve eaten in my life

I can’t say enough about this place

And get ready donuts and blood orange tart for desert

Trust me

This place is worth every star it gets

Thank you for an awesome Mother’s Day experience

We only were able to get a reservation at 9:15. Why do you offer reservations so late if your servers are going to rush us through our meal. They cleared our table across us, put their hands out when they wanted us to hand them our plates....filled coffee to the brim so we couldn’t even pick up the cup to drink. We love it here and come often. This was really bad service. Ordinarily we receive excellent service. You shouldn’t offer late reservations if you can’t properly accommodate your guests. Brought the dessert (donuts) without any plates or utensils.

My server was excellent. Everything tasted great. Lobster was amazing. Strawberry shortcake was the best I’ve ever had. The only negatives was my filet came out well done, I ordered medium. I think my server got busy at the end cause my desert took a long time to come out and it took quite a while to get the bill.

Great food, ambiance, and service. We never were rushed. Our waiter suggested that we split a salad, which was just the right amount to accompany our entrees. We had a delightful evening.

Best of Reno. Mathew .. Sherwin.. amazing servers and will accommodate any palate/ preference. The Bistro is 20X better than the steak house in terms of service, selection and prep . Excellent wine list and best cuts of meat - the seafood (ciapino) (crab) (scallops) all - best of Reno! Don’t cheat yourself - finish with port and dessert and/ or coffee.

The Caesar salad dressing tasted bottled, which is too bad because it used to be quite good. The prime rib was unusually tough and dry, and instead of medium (I also clarified pink not red), it was well done (grey throughout). Normally everything is perfect, so it was surprising how ill prepared it was. Service was already slow, so we didn’t feel we could send it back.

Also we have never had a problem with service, in fact sometimes staff is a little over attentive. But last night we constantly struggled to get our tea refilled. Even getting salt was a challenge. We were also never offered pepper for our salad and he left so we quickly, we didn’t get the opportunity to ask.

We were looking for a nice place to relax and enjoy a fine food dining experience. We were not disappointed. Prawns were plump and fresh, scallops were cleaned well and cooked to perfection. I really enjoyed the cotton candy presentation to round out the meal. The room was a bit noisier than I had expected, but it was easy to have a conversation at the table.

Just thoughts that should concern you.
The service over this past year is not what it used to be. The waiter had to be chased down to let him see how the fresh made pasta was clumped together in a mess. Was told he’d show the chef. Had to ask the server again to save it to show the chef. For how often we recommend Atlantis as our favorite place of late the food areas need to be readdressed because honestly there are many areas that need serious attention. Napa Bistro happy hour is better Parrott is good and the Deli needs serious help just look at the lack of presentation of food and quality (Shrimp Louie and Greek Salad are examples)You’re going to fully reopen and should want to be on top of your rating status. The entire City will be looking for the same clients to feed . Thank You for listening

Love the atmosphere, food and service but was a little surprised that the lobster tail we ordered in November, 2020 was now $ 25.00 more. Yikes!!!
Just a little pricey. $90.00 for a lobster dinner is exorbitant!

We decided to get out of town for an overnight trip to Reno. Thought we'd stay someplace different this time. We opted for Atlantis, Were disappointed that the Steakhouse wasn't open on our Monday stay. So we went to Bistro Napa. We were very pleased with the meal. I had the Chioppino. It was excellent. Wife had Halibut stuffed with Crab. Service was impeccable.

The Bistro at the Atlantis never lets us down. The staff is amazing. They work hard everyday to make the guest the priority. After our dinner we ran into friends leaving the restaurant and ended up sitting right back down with them for a night cap. The staff had no issue with giving us another table in the lounge area and treated us to another great time. It’s was almost hard to leave once the night was over. You’ll never go wrong with the Atlantis!

I was surprised how nice this place was especially since it's in a casino. Food was delicious and service was on par. Ambiance is nice with the copper ceiling and painted sky. My husband liked his prime rib and I enjoyed my scallops and crab chowder. We couldn't decide on dessert and the restaurant gave us exactly what he wanted "Strawberry short cake" which had "Happy Birthday" writing in chocolate. Complimentary cotton candy was nice.

Service was poor. Waited over 50 minutes with the waiter pretty much ignoring us the whole time. My wife’s food was lukewarm. Too expensive for this level of ssrvice.
