    We sat on the patio which was very nice. Very little street noise. Server was attentive and great attitude. Prices were higher than we anticipated, but the food was excellent and really nice presentation. Fabulous burgers! We'll definitely go back.

    Simply delicious! While this place is not about the ambience..it’s really sort of plain..what you remember and want to go back again is the food! So yummy from appetizer to main course.. even my cocky]tail was delicious! Oh! And the service was friendly and superlative! Love the Washoe Public House!

    Good service, pleasant outdoor experience. Some patio chairs need replacement. Green lentil curry was very good. More vegetarian entrees to choose from would be a plus. Loved the Irish nachos. Heavy silverware and cobalt blue glasses are a quality touch!

    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!
