Fantastic evening. The chili steak soup is one of my favorites. The large portion of sole was perfectly prepared and served atop mushroom raviolis. We reunited with one of our favorite servers, Jen. - always personable and professional. Just a great relaxing evening.

Requested patio but did not realize it was quite windy. We asked the hostess for an inside table and we were told it would be a 1 hour wait! So we sat on the patio and we were told that the heating lamps had no propane so they were not functional! What a disappointment. The wait staff was the only positive aspect of our evening . The outside tables and chairs looked very tired and worn and not comfortable at all. Half of the patio hanging lights did not work.We ordered the clam chowder which was extremely spicy and too much pepper was used so I could not eat but a few bites. The short ribs has way too much sauce on top and should be put on the side for the customer to use as they wish. The gnocchi were tasteless and the veggies were overcooked. The mushroom ravioli was sub par .The dinner for two people plus wine and a soda was extremely overpriced!! And the waiter did not have anything to say when I mentioned that the soup was way too spicy!!Mo compensation was offered, which was surprising.
We were Very disappointed and we will probably not return or recommend. Unfortunately, we were referred to your establishment as new Reno residents but it was not what we had heard so much about and we were expecting a much, much better experience.

I had the Thai salad and added grilled chicken. It was delicious! A little bit of heat which I enjoyed very much. My friends had sandwiches and loved them also. I would definitely go back again.

Luncheon special was bad: chicken sandwich that the waitress said she really liked. It was dry, flavorless and a piece of the bacon on the sandwich fell onto the plate. When I ate it I discovered it was rancid. Definitely not fresh. the onion was limp and the avocado was very minimal.

Met for happy hour. Unfortunately I didn’t know the patio area was open. I will reserve that next time.
Food was excellent. We shared chopped bot salad with bacon, tomatoes, avocado, shredded blue cheese and a creamy blue cheese dressing. Cauliflower ceviche with delicious crispy corn tortilla chips, mushroom ravioli and port tacos.
Who new that everything complimented one another and amazing stand alone.
$6 per little big plate. A fantastic value.
Service was spot on, just enough attention. We were never pressured to turn over the table.
A wonderful early evening.
This place has been a favorite for years. Haven’t been able to enjoy since COVID-19. So glad we were able to enjoy once again.

Wow would be an understatement! The service was top notch, and the food was definitely top notch! I really enjoy fish and chips, and decided to try them here. They are the best that Reno has to offer! Light, fresh, petrale sole. I can’t believe how phenomenal the dish was as well as not trying it long ago. This will definitely be my go to place for fish and chips. The appetizers were spot on fresh and delicious! The hummus is creamy with perfect flavor balance. If you love beets, there beet appetizer is amazing as well! Ready to go back sooner than later!
