Moody's does not disappoint! I was up there for a girls' weekend and visited Moody's for dinner, drinks and dancing. The babette steak and frites with bernaise was so good we came back the next night for seconds. The entertainment was delightful, with Christopher Hawley Rollers providing a great soundtrack for dancing. The first night we sat in the midst of the front dining room where all the action was, and the second night we sat at the bar. Sarah was amazing and attentive with a fantastic Old Fashioned, a healthy pour of a delicious French red, and oh those truffle fries. Can't wait to come back for more!

We enjoyed a delicious & creative rib eye with veggies which my husband & I shared. This is a cozy place which was full on a Thursday night. This is not "knock your socks off" food but it is very tasty & well-done. We will return for sure when we return to Truckee. Friends recommended this place to us and we will recommend it to our friends as well.

We were sat at an extremely small 2 top table in the corner with the wall on one side and the next table less than a foot to the other side. Table was not even big enough to place a pizza and drinks on it. Thankfully the 4 people at the adjoining table were friendly. The French onion soup was excellent as was the wine. The pizza had no flavor. Great service but the table location made it one of the most disappointing dining experiences we had on our trip to Lake Tahoe.

Innovative but approachable food. Great combinations of unexpected ingredients. Excellent service. Can be noisy but worth it for the food. Great live music too!

The hamburger was juicy and flavorful. Our waiter said it was the best in Truckee and he was right!

My family, especially my 2 kids, loved the varieties of foods they liked. The service and staffs were very attentive and therefore, the service was excellent!

Made a reservation and made the drive up from Sac for date night for food and live music. Good atmosphere, drinks a bit pricey,
food is ok but a bit overpriced. I guess you can do that when your hot spot in town. Had
fun. Shoulda checked the bill before paying. Got charged for two extra high end glasses of wine we didn’t order. I guess that’s what happens when your getting a buzz and having fun.

Waitstaff was very attentive. Food very good. Unfortunately the manager was terrible. A large table of men (sorry, just a fact) behind ours was very roudy and loud. Why do some diners act as though they are in their own homes?!
We asked the server to ask the loud table to keep it down. He did not. We asked again and the manager came over to ask us what our problem was. We explained and asked that he request the loud table to turn the volume down. He refused, saying that it’s a restaurant. The implication being that they had every right to their raucousness and lack of consideration for other patrons. The manager said he’d move us to another table. We were almost done with our meal at this point so we declined.
In my opinion, poorly handled and we will not return.

Food is absolutely incredible. Everything from the Maine Lobster Roll appetizer, to the Scallops main course, to the creme brule! So tasty!

Always a nice atmosphere and attentive service. An early reservation insures a great table with moderate noise level.

We have gone to Moody's for the last 3 years on our family ski trip. Their prices have risen since then. On our recent visit, they were busy but not packed. Certainly we have been there when they were busier. We waited 45 mins for our food to arrive. My husband and I both ordered the black cod. It was only lukewarm, the dish it self was visually pleasing but very bland in taste. The entree cost $34. I felt that it was overpriced for what we received. My son ordered the hamburger and fries. The hamburger bun was soggy, the fries were tasteless. My daughter ordered the campanelle dish, the pasta was rubbery. We will not be going back to Moody's again.
