    Menu looked great, but I found the food to be mediocre. Cocktail was good. Server working inside and out, so forgot about us. Loud party with kids next to us. Probably won’t go back.

    Really good taste but definitely disappointed with the portions. The Double Elk chops was about 1/2 the size of a normal rack of lamb. I anticipated two chops that filled a plate for $42. The duck was equally small. I’d be back because food is good but never order either item again

    We have eaten here several times. The food is always excellent. This time was the second time that the service was unacceptable. It was about 7 minutes before anybody came to our table. Sensing a repeat of our previous bad experience (also time related), we ordered our wine and food at the same time. We requested an order of bread to be brought with our wine. It was 15 minutes before our wine arrived (no bread). At about 40 minutes after we ordered our wine and food (a couple burgers) our server said he was going to check on our bread and dinner. He said the bread may have been delivered to the wrong table. I told him we did not want the bread anymore. He came back a couple minutes later with our dinner. It took almost 45 minutes to get our food. It was very good, but the service has ruined our experience there. If they had moved at a normal pace we would've gotten a second round of drinks too. It will be along time before we return there, if we ever do.

    We planned a date night here and had a chance to try multiple small plates because of their happy hour. They were great! The mac and cheese was yummy and the warm beet salad had great flavors. We split the main course and it was served on separate plates (so we didn’t have to fight over our portions haha). Great service, delicious food, and good house wine. The s’mores dessert was fun and tasty! Definitely recommend for either a casual or more upscale night out with high end food that won’t completely break the bank. We will be back!

    Visiting with family. The server was very nice, but she was way overbooked, thus our service was very very slow. The food we ordered was very good. Some dishes were a definite 5* while others were average 3*. The space is very neutral and there is no ambiance. White walls… etc. cold and boring.

    This was my 2nd time to Washoe Public House. The first time the food was amazing, but unfortunately this time it wasn’t that good. Three in my party ordered burgers and they were very salty. I loved the green curry lentils the first time and couldn’t wait to have them again. While it was good, it wasn’t great and this was pretty salty too. My husbands Shephards pie was great! We ordered a few small plate and all were good. Ordered three desserts for the table and they were nothing special. Our server was really great!!

    Food was excellent, I had the rock candy short rib and wife had the salmon, split the pork belly spring rolls before the meal and a slice of flourless chocolate cake after, all were prepared perfectly, presented nicely. Our server Ryan was friendly, energetic and attentive, which made the dining experience at Washoe Public House very impressive for a first visit. We will be returning!

    Our meal was wonderful. BF had the wild boar schnitzel he said it was good as any he had when he lived in Germany. I had the lamb chops they were. Cooked to perfection. Ryan was our waiter and he made our experience even better. If you have a chance to eat here ask for him by name, you will not regret it.

    Wonderful, the restaurant is a hidden gem, located on a side street in downtown Reno, excellent ambiance, service is delightful, food is some of the best I’ve ever had. We went two nights in a row, with 2 different couples, it was there first time and loved it, they were already talking about what they were going to order next visit.

    I found this restaurant thanks to Open Table. I didn’t know that It was once on the show “Diners, Drive-In’s and Drives” until we left. It was a stopping point for us and we met with dear friends. The food was really good. I like to season my ketchup with Tabasco sauce, but our server (who was VERY friendly with her regulars) told me they didn’t have Tabasco (for 3-weeks now). She said this as she was doing something else toward the kitchen, well. Okay. Our friend and his wife who are residents said he had dinner there and it was very tasty was spot on. It was a cute joint, and if you want an amazing short-rib grilled cheese sandwich…GO!

    Very disappointed in the service as the restaurant would not honor our Open Table reservation for 8. Manager claimed he did not have to honor reservations made from this app. We did not have a back-up reservation for our large table so we were stuck with nowhere to have our dinner as all the restaurants were full. We knew a large party would be a challenge which is why we made our reservation! Frustrating! We have never experienced trouble through booking reservations through Open Table - be careful with this restaurant!

    Ate on the patio. Located near the art museum in a quiet part of downtown. Busy today but staff was on it! Friendly and attentive. Food was delicious and with generous portions. Irish nachos are a must. A range of entrees to satisfy everyone's palate. Yummy cocktails.

    Once we were seated it took 15 min before anyone brought us water or acknowledged us. A table of 8 sat down after we arrived and they were given water within minutes and placing their orders. Not cool. However our waiter Ryan (Randy) was awesome! Fast attentive funny he made it enjoyable!
