The Mother’s Day brunch did not disappoint. A special yummy eggs(many ways) menu with homemade scones ,bottomless mimosas and two choices of dessert. The coffee was great and the fruit was delicious. The service was excellent as well.

Normally we love taking our friends here as it is a great experience. However, the last couple of time it seems like the overall experience has fallen off. This time in particular it seemed like nothing went right. First, the table we were seated at was broken in multiple locations. Second, our server Reese, although he was nice, he seemed to be in a rush to get us out of there even though we had just sat down. For example when asking about specials rather than explaining each individual item he just listed that there were Salad, Soup, Fish, etc.. specials and that if any of those categories interested us that he would go over them specifically. Furthermore, one of the reasons for going to the Washoe Public House was for the dessert as we are big fans of the lemon cake. However, we were not even asked if we wanted dessert, nor given the chance discuss as he brought the bill to us as soon as the entrée course was removed from the table. As much as I would like to say we will be returning; I don’t know if we will. Sad to see this place going downhill.

Poutine was marvelous. Bulgogi lettuce cups good. Goat cheese salad good. Hamachi crudo not fresh. Should have known better than to order raw fish in Reno.

We ordered the poutine and potato bourguignon soup as appetizers. So delicious. For dinner, we ordered the Washoe burger and one of the specials, a carbonara pasta.
Would eat here again, great service, great food.

Had an amazing lunch at Washoe's. The food was superb and the drinks were very well prepared. We sat outside in the sunshine and enjoyed being waited on by our wonderful waitress. "I didn't get her name" But she gets it. Her attention to detail was amazing.

A fun place but if you're hard of hearing and wish to visit, this is not the venue. Great bar and loved the martini that was balanced just right. The food was quite tasty, but the meat came with some unchewable bits. Still a good meal and fun venue.

Food was good, service was super slow... not sure if it was because of Covid or something else but even our order taking was slow and server just did not seem to be super responsive.

It was a little awkward as we were placed in a back room and felt somewhat disconnected from our waitress. Previously we have eaten out on the patio and I enjoyed it more.

The food was delish. I had the Rock Candy Shortribs. They were melt in your mouth. The crispy fried shallots on top were great. My husband had the Elk Rack and thought it was great too.

I ordered the wedge salad with roasted turkey and it was horrible. The Irish nachoes were overcooked and you could barely taste the cheese or bacon while it was overloaded on top with sour cream.

Food was bland. Fries were good. Cleanliness poor. Menus visibly soiled. Door handle dirty. Found a hair on my plate. Caesar salad did not have much flavor. Banh mi was doused in Mayo. Poor belly not cooked. Kimchi was large chunks of veggies that were rubbery. Would not return

The food was amazing! We got the short rib poutine and while it sounds bizarre - it was delicious. I opted for the schnitzel and was not disappointed! The portions are huge and well worth the price. The noise level was a little loud when we were in there and the ambiance isn’t overly romantic or fancy but still a great place for dinner!

My two critiques for this restaurant would be number one the servers need to lower their masks to talk to customers, my wife misunderstood what the server told her when she asked about the soup. He said something that I could not even understand and then ran it together with the specials. And number two please check your glasses both mine and my wife’s were cracked pretty bad.
Other than those two everything else was pretty good

This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. The food was excellent and Courtney (our server) was pleasant and quite attentive. They have some interesting and unusual items that are quite tasty. I had the jalapeno bratwurst with pickled salad and added a side of fries. I will be back and highly recommend this place.

the wife had the patty melt and said it was exceptionally good.
I had the short rib - which I've had before and it was excellent.
Can't wait for better weather - and sitting outside!!

Excellent restaurant! Great food and service. Catering mostly to locals with fresh, modern American cuisine. I visited Reno twice in the past two months and other than skiing, this restaurant was the highlight of both my trips.

THANKS FOR MAKING OUR BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION EXTRA SPECIAL! Oh my gosh - PROPS to our sweet waitress (I apologize, I never got her name!) She was wonderful!

The short rib grilled cheese will blow your mind.....along with the pork belly bau......AND THE LEMON POUND CAKE (I don't even like lemon!)

Surprisingly tasty treats from little spot. Really glad we went ;)
