Truckee Tavern & Grill
Love the ingenious craft cocktails. Soups and salads are great. And if you just want a great burger, they have that too!
Consistently great in terms of food quality, service and experience. One of Truckee's finest options.
We went here with some friends that we hadn’t seen in a while! Didn’t wait long to be seated, our waiter was very friendly and welcoming . Hamburgers and Steak were delicious and a big shout out to the truffle mashed potato.
The food and cocktails here are fantastic!!!
Carefully crafted cocktails. Much thought goes into each entrée. Local trout was delectable and properly prepared with the skin left on and crispy and not overcooked. One of the better Truckee restaurants for sure. Only complaint: with the caverness ceilings it is very loud when all the tables are filled. Perhaps some sound baffles hanging from the ceiling would help. A go-to place though.
We wait 25 minutes before setting at the table I had booked the day before.
We have been up to Truckee so many times in the last 10 years and have never been to Truckee Tavern. I had the best experience with the bar tender Ian and our waitress when we got seated named Becky. The service was wonderful. The drinks and food amazing. We will definitely be back!! Can’t wait!
Made a reservation for a Friday night. Got there and waited 15 minutes to be seated even though there were plenty of tables open. Not sure why the host made us wait but the food and wait staff were great!
Restaurant has potential, however the menu choices needs much work!
Excellent food and cocktails in a cool atmosphere!
I have been coming to this restaurant since they opened. Every time I go skiing at North Tahoe , it is my favorite place to go before I head back to SAN FRAN.
The owner has done a fantastic job. Sorry I missed you this time. Karen
We really enjoyed the live music and cheese and meat board was delicious!
Great food in Tuckee! The house made pasta and ricotta was amazing. Pork chop was delish - super tender and juicy. Nice, low-key love music in a Thursday night... Highly recommend!!
The food was well prepared and service on spot. The grilled shrimp app was tasty and the New York cut was delicious!
The shared Porterhouse was great as were the drinks. They were quite accommodating to our friends young child as well.
Ambience nice. Priced comparable to decent dining in north shore. Would go again
Second time visiting Truckee Tavern and Grill - first time was phenomenal; unfortunately our second time (most recently) was not as good for a couple of reasons. One the food - steak was over cooked and pork chop was extremely fatty. Secondly, we had an OpenTable $25 gift card to use towards our $300 dinner - the manager of Truckee Tavern and Grill said they did not accept and to take up with OpenTable. Fair point, however for $25 on $300 bill of repeat customer I would think he should've accepted the gift card and restaurant should've taken up directly with OpenTable. Probably won't be back to Truckee Tavern and Grill as there are other more economical restaurants in the area with great food.
The food was fantastic There signature cocktails were also delicious.
Outstanding and unique cocktails, baked Raclette appetizer and Trout dish were both exceptional, great service and nice view overlooking downtown Truckee. An overall wonderful experience!
Great restaurant! Food was delicious and the atmosphere was perfect after a day on the mountain.
Felt for price, should have been better experience. While our waitress was very nice, polite and good, the food came out cold. Which wasn't surprising because we were served well past other diners that came in after us. Hard to reco, even as there aren't a ton of spots for fine dining in Truckee. But we'll try other places next time in town. The bartendress also had an attitude, as we waited over 30 minutes for our table. Politely asked for a drink, and she went on about how busy she was. And the bar wasn't that full. Odd.
Truckee Tavern just keeps getting better and better. Best bone in pork chops in the Truckee/Tahoe area.
The good - We enjoyed the food. The rest was a bummer. When picking a wine I asked our server a question about the wines, she fully admitted that she didn't know and hadn't tried most of the wine but told us she would be happy to send over the "sommeiller"- Great. When the "sommeiller" walked over it was the host, but okay, he must know his wines, right? umm, no. I explained that we liked big, full-bodied whites with some oak and he then recommended an un-oaked light wine. I thought he must have misunderstood me so again explained no un-oaked. I then asked about an Italian wine listed under their "full bodied" whites and he said he didn't know about that one. Over it, I said, great, we'll try the french one, assuming he finally understood what we were looking for (after explaining twice) that I meant the french wine listed under their full bodied whites. I didn't remember the name of the wine we ordered when it was brought over and presented to us, but figured their sommeiller would know, we accepted it and even though it was lighter than we normally like, we didn't want to send it back, it was only $30 and we just wanted to enjoy our time Fast forward to the bill and the wine is $68. I looked at the wine list again as I was sure the wine we ordered was $30, and it was, but there was a $68 french wine listed under the un-oaked wines. Okay, clearly their "sommeiller" had made an honest mistake, no biggie. I called over the server and explained the mistake. She sent over the host/sommeiller who basically asked me if the server had presented the wine to me insinuating that it was my mistake and I *again* explained to him that I was very clear (twice) that we didn't want un-oaked. Long story short, he continued to imply that this was my mistake, humphed off and said he would see what he could do. He returned 5 minutes later and let us know he had taken 10% off the price of the wine. So a whole $6.80. Terrible service. Ruined a good night.
Worst service I’ve had in a restaurant in years. I’ll never be back and it seems that was their goal
Always enjoy this place!
The hostess was terrible. We had a reservation for 8:30 pm, but did not seat until 9:10 pm. The hostess didn’t gave any explanation. Actually she disappeared after the second time we asked about the delay.
The waitress service was pretty good. But the food take too long to arrive. The food overall was ok, but a bit pricy.
I would not go back or recommend this place.
The restaurant is beautiful. Old charm. The staff is very friendly and the food is fresh with great flavor. Everything we tried was awesome.
Celebrated our anniversary here and the evening was just perfect!
Horrible food saturated with salt. First glass of red wine was "corked" but they didn't charge me. Staff pleasant but overworked.
Went for dinner and a glass of wine and was incredibly treated to both! My second time there and another great meal!
This place was wonderful - we went to dinner for my son’s 25th birthday. We were seated right away. We ordered appetizers
Premium cocktails, simple menu, something for everyone.
We had a great time! We loved the atmosphere, and our server was perfect! She even took part of the porterhouse back to Cook more for one of the people eating it. We will be back!
Enjoyed the ambience and food. Server was knowledgeable but service was slow, it was a busy night! Food was good, but on the pricey side. Overall, we enjoyed our meal and dining experience.
Server and hostes didn't get proper information from the kitchen. Wrong information was given to us.
Best cocktails in Truckee/North Lake Tahoe! Food is great too.
The servers were super friendly and attentive. The cocktails were innovative and delicious. The food was good. Two of the dishes were too spicy for some of the people in our group. The metal chairs are uncomfortable (especially for one of us suffering from sciatica.) The vibe is energetic and fun. We had a good time.
Food was great, cocktails outstanding and unique, excellent service. Desserts were also great.
For a restaurant with a respectable wine list, they need to do better at wine service. Food was very good, but room for improvement. Restaurant was nearly empty, but they couldn’t seat us 15 min early. Very close to being excellent, but they need to learn/execute the “little things” with respect to service.
Had a delicious meal here. The agnolotti were superb.
