About

Progressive American cuisine pioneer, Charlie Palmer, continues his West Coast trail with Charlie Palmer Steak, Reno: a contemporary steakhouse that feels more like a clubhouse wrapped with blonde wooden walls and textured fabrics in midnight blue, deep terracotta and espresso.

In the kitchen, we continue the clubhouse feel with neo-traditional steakhouse fare such as Oregon Wagyu Beef Short Ribs with Garlicky Gremolata and classic tableside service of Steak Diane. The trademark eclectic wine list is strong in America bottlings focused on the Northwest and including rare single-vineyard bottles.

We arrived at 7:00 PM. Had tickets to a 9:00 PM show and told our waiter. He said it would be no problem. They were busy because of the show, but the place wasn't full. Had our wine and salads. At the 1:15 minute mark, we still had no food. I asked the waiter and he said it was coming. At 1:25 minutes I found the manager. He said they were very busy and that ours was the next order up. At this time, the restaurant was less than half full. I told him to cancel our orders because we would have time to eat and enjoy our meal since we had to get in line for the show. He again said ours was next up and they they had been very busy. I canceled our meals, the manager said they would cover our wine and salads.

If a restaurant doesn't have enough staff to handle the amount of people the restaurant will hold, they shouldn't take so many reservations. Very poor service. Next time we will eat in town and just come for the show.

We had a wonderful dinner experience. Our waiter, Julian, was engaging and knowledgeable and provided excellent customer service, he gave us just the right amount of attention. Our meal was fabulous and the steaks were the best we have ever had! We will definitely be back!

I have eaten here numerous times. The food and service is always great. On this last trip, we ate at both Charlie Palmers and at Roxy's. In my opinion, Charlie Palmers is much better. Will definitely be back.

I had heard how wonderful this restaurant is. But it was only average in my opinion. The service was tremendous but the food was just average which was disappointing to me. The thing that wasn't so special was the steak. It was kind of tough and I don't expect that from an upscale restaurant I guess.

I give ALL THE STARS on this review! This was an excellent dining experience. Ever since our favorite Reno steakhouse closed we have been looking to try another place in town. We had dinner with my fiance's friend who was visiting for the weekend, and we have no regrets. From the bread basket, the apps, the sides, and of course, the steaks...the food quality was excellent. My fiance and his friend each ordered the 20 oz ribeye and they were cooked to PERFECTION. I have never seen such looks of contentment from eating a steak before. I ordered the halibut entree and it was delicious as well, the fish tender and moist. The one item that really surprised us though were the french fries...in our opinion it's the best side dish they offer. Crispy, flavorful exterior and fluffy on the inside, it's totally worth the $8 and there's plenty for sharing. The service was great too -- from our lovely server to the sommelier who helped us pick out wine, and to the staff who offered fantastic table service. We had a dining credit from the hotel but we would have totally paid full price for this meal, it was absolutely wonderful. I hope we can come back again soon!

We have dined here many times and will continue to enjoy the wonderful food, craft beverages and desserts in the future. Great place for a special event or for a quality meal before a show. The homemade breads, house salad, house wines and fantastic desserts really stand out.

Excellent service from the hostess to our server Donovan! I loved that they recognized our anniversary. The food was phenomenal. The fillet mignon was very tender and flavorful on it's own but was made even better with the chimichurra sauce. The mac and cheese was delicious also. We could taste the creamy Gouda that was in it. Very good place to dine for a special occasion. Will definitely be back!

Everything was perfect during our meal at Charlie Palmer's. The staff were very attentive and helpful. Every dish was delicious. We had scallops and a wedge salad for starters. The salad was crisp and cold and the scallops were cooked just right and very flavorful. My friend had the pasta special and I had the filet mignon. Excellent main dishes! Charlie Palmer's is a wonderful place for a special occasion.

Arrived for dinner before a concert. High priced mediocre meal. The cocktails were yummy. The wine pour was not very generous for the price. The service was great. Then went to the show. Line snaked around for an hour. The show started b4 the line was seated and ended in 45 minutes. Last time I go to GSR. Applebee’s bourbon street Steak is better.

The server was abysmal. No greeting, delivered appetizers and main course and sides together. Did not ice wine as requested..twice! Did not bring plates from which to eat. Did not bring ordered wine for main course , had to remind and tell again what the order was. Food was terrific. However, we were celebrating a 50th wedding anniversary and wanted special evening and instead got worse service than Taco Bell. We spent $250.00 and did NOT leave any tip. The server ,Loren, is completely AWFUL. Comped the winE but who cares when he ruined a special celebration .

Excellent Service! The staff was top notch professional!! Erwin and Angelina were by far the best servers we have ever encountered. We have been to many steak houses all over the world and were extremely pleased with the "red carpet" service. The food and ambiance were superior. We will definitely be back.

Food was very good but ridiculously expensive. “One pound” of crab legs turned out to be 1 crab leg - and it was $65.

Very nice meal except for the cigarette smoke. Excellent service. I had the fresh halibut special and my husband had the hanger steak. We were eating before a show/concert. The smoke from the surrounding areas was terrible.

the beet salad was obviously premade, and stored in the refrigerator. the beets were VERY cold and there was liquid on the bottom of the plate. the tuna poke was very fishy and bland. needed flavor and texture. the daily special halibut was the best dish we had and quite well cooked. but the bok choy underneath was bland and presented poorly. overall, we believe that the restaurant thought it was better than it actually was-

The filet was one of the best I've ever had. I dont always pay $50 for 10oz of steak, but when I do, it better be that good (and it was).

A very small portion of cioppino. Watery sauce. I would recommend The Fish Market for a larger, more authentic cioppino.

I think it is the best steakhouse in Reno, but it's tough to justify going more than once a year because the prices are crazy high; but you do pay for quality. Service is phenomenal and food is too.

Dinner for 3, no appetizers, 1 glass wine, 1 shared dessert, $240 plus tip. Filet mignon's were excellent, perfectly cooked! Dessert was delicious! Service was excellent! Salads were crispy but dressing bitter. Side vegetables overcooked & overwhelmed wth shallots and garlic, couldn't taste the vegetable. An odd selction of and a small number of side dishes to choose from. Our first visit, expected more from this caliber restaurant and for the money spent, a lot to just enjoy the steak. hc

We love the Steakhouse, and on top of it we met our previous waiter, Brian. He is Great and seeing him again just made our day. He already knew our needs for the seafood! Very good wine selections, one can tell that you have put a lot of good effort into creating the wine lists. Overall, fantastic experience.
