Steakhouse
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.

Cold steak. Slow service. Did not compare to the Charlie Palmers in Napa.

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.

Not as advertised. Went there on St. Patrick's Day for the advertised Irish Stew. It was nothing like the picture. The picture was a thick stew with large chunks of meat, carrots and potatoes. I received a dark brown, soupy, small bowl with just small chunks of meat. No discernible carrots or potato. It also came with Soda Bread, which was supposed to be hard on the outside. But this was rock solid, my husband and I could not even crack this Soda Bread open. We even banged it on the table and it didn't crack. My husband's steak was very good. I guess since it's a steak house we both should have stuck to that, but the advertisement looked so good. We're going to stick with Peppermill.

The restaurant was very noisy
The decor was very much like a dressed up diner, no gluten free options for breads, prices were too high for the atmosphere and food quality.

The food, ambiance, and service is bland, low-quality FOOD COURT.

We ate dinner at Charlie Parker's and despite the $500 bill, ww were rushed through our 6:30pm dinner reservation, because the kitchen was too busy to serve us in time for the 9:00pm concert. It was turn and burn AWFUL. The cocktails, appetizer and wine all arrived at the same time. We sent the apps back and cancelled them, then had to manage the servers ourselves, letting them know when we ready for our bland main courses. We almost left, but the only other options at the casino are a California Pizza Kitchen and Starbucks. This is RENO NASTY. We might as well have been having $5.99 steak downtown.

And the only restrooms were down the hall and around the corner through the smoke-filled nasty casino. Disgusting. We didn't have time to finish our $200 bottle of wine, so we had it corked and bagged to take with us, only to be turned away at the concert doors and told that we couldn't carry it into the venue with us. So again we had to RUN back to our room with the bag, then back to the the venue line again, barely making it in time for the 9:30pm start time.

Everything was pretty good, but the food. The chicken was bland, no flavor at all. It might just be the chef for the night, because last time I went the food was so phenomenal and on point! I’ll give it another try though!
