Justin provided a memorable birthday experience for us! He takes great photos too! You are my favorite place to go—alone, with hubby, doggie, with friends, inside or outside — all occassions!
Our reservation was 5:15, we arrived at 5:20. After waiting outside till 5:45 we were seated inside in a back room. Some windows were broken and black sheets were covering most of the windows, so I give the ambiance a poor. My wife ordered a glass of zin which was served very warm. My martini was warm as well. I got the salmon which was overcooked. Her Mahi Mahi was good but a little dry. This used to be my favorite restaurant in Reno so I was overall disappointed.
We had a wonderful lunch on their outside patio. The food was great and service was outstanding.
It was easy to make a reservation. The server was wonderful. We enjoyed the outside seating area. We each ordered salads which were above average but a little pricey. Overall an enjoyable experience though.
It was our first time and it will not be our last. Our Waitress, Priscilla was excellent. She made recommendations and gave honest opinion on some items, all great! The food was elevated to a former level. We had the glazed pear and Brie sandwich. It was warmed, the bread was soft the pears and cheese paired excellently.
We had a Bloody Mary which made our lunch a more celebratory meal!
Can’t wait to go back!!
Good was very good. The server was very friendly, but not very attentive. We never got our appetizer or drinks refilled. The atmosphere is amazing!!
This was our second visit and we felt the food was not as good as our first visit. We loved the Brussels sprouts appetizer on our first visit and found it mediocre last night. My meatloaf was tasty but not as good as what my wife had last time and our guests split the meatloaf and were not overly impressed. Three of us really enjoyed the wedge salad and my wife thought the house salad was very good.
The staff was amazing. Catered to every need and wish immediately.
The Food was excellent.
The noise level (outside) cannot be controlled and overall was not that bad.
Good dinner, always enjoy sitting outside and enjoying the fresh air, friends and good food. The presentation and taste was good, missed out on ordering a salad, my bad. Very busy as always on a Friday, but great to introduce new friends to a local favorite.
Outside music was nice, too loud. A lady was wondering the space telling them to turn it up, to bad it competed with our conversation, we would have stayed longer.
We reserved for a Friday afternoon ro get drinks at Happy hour. It was super hot out, but with the umbrellas, was very nice. Happy hour is 4-6 with music at 6:30. Atmosphere was great! After drinks, we decided just to sample off the happy hour menu, and it was fantastic! I recommend the Flat Iron steak (a steak at $15). We also enjoyed Ceasars salads.
Got to grab a great meal with a friend! The service was amazing, our waitress was kind and really knowledgeable about the menu, made excellent suggestions!
Soggy Reuben sandwich- need to drain sauerkraut. Nice staff but waiter Justin not attentive listener- asked multiple times for another beer, knife that fell to ground and condiments. Should have been aware of filling water glasses frequently due to heat outside. Nice that we were offered inside seating if desired since it was close to 100 degrees.
Great ambiance with outdoor dining and live music every evening! Food was great as was service. Highly recommend this establishment!
Outside on the patio on a windy day. Everything else was outstanding!
Beautiful plaza with lots of tables and huge umbrellas. Lovely to sit there.
Service was good but the food was poor.
The baguette was from a grocery store, not a bakery.
Again, beautiful ambience ….terrible food.
This place has potential to be great if they do a little work to improve it. Although the hostess was polite, she seemed to hate her job and practically ran away from us as she was showing us to our table and spent almost zero time with us to get seated. It was a bit humorous when we saw her do it to other people, though it was a bit unsettling when it was our turn.
The food was above average quality and taste for Reno. One slight problem was that the kitchen cooked a steak to medium-well that was ordered as medium-rare. The waitress offered to take it back and have them re-do it, but we didn't want to wait.
The spicy shrimp option is spicy by Reno standards, but it's exactly as it should be. The mushroom raviolis were quite bland, so it's hard to tell if this kitchen has a handle on taste and spice level or if it's luck of the draw which cook preps the plate.
We arrived relatively early for dinner, and the place got incredibly loud before we were finished as the tables around us filled up. We'll try it again to see how things are with other menu options and other days of the week.
Loved the live music and Jensen provided excellent service!
It was my really good friends birthday there were five of us and we sat on the patio. Our server was very attentive and really made the experience quite nice she was very helpful and knowledgeable. There was live music which was fantastic.We will be back
Fabulous food! Great wait staff! Beautiful day outside.. What more could you ask for?
Love this place and our server was outstanding! Highly recommend!
Love this place, best anniversary or and occasion dining. And a great gift card gift.
The food was exceedingly amazing!!! I’d definitely return
The food was great
Great food. Fabulous service. Anniversary lunch for son and daughter-in-law. Even provided desert. Thank you for a wonderful day.
The service was excellent. Drinks and food were quick, and our server was always there when we needed him. The menu has lots of good options, and the ambience was very nice.
We had reservations for 6:45, but due to patrons staying longer than expected, we weren't seated until 7:15, but the management was very polite and even comped us some appetizers without us having to say anything; that was really nice of them. As always, the food was excellent. The prices have definitely gone up a bit, but still worth it. We had a wonderful time celebrating my son's birthday and will return there again.
My server was efficient and friendly! Absolutely loved ever hung about it!
The crab and salmon cakes are amazing!
Service was great. Food and drinks were pretty good. It was very hot and noisy though. Not relaxing for an expensive meal. I probably won’t go back.
A great restaurant next to the Truckee River in downtown Reno. It was walking distance from our hotel. We went for early lunch. The food was delicious, and the service very good!
Crab cakes were excellent, I had the meatloaf with was very good.
Great food at a decent value. Service was outstanding, and the ambiance sitting outside right by the river is wonderful. Overall a great dining experience. Have been there several times and will go back.
Sat outside. Great service. Lively atmosphere but not loud or boisterous.
Good lunch and appetizer menu variety. Outside patio is lovely.
One of our favorite restaurants but disappointed in the location of our table, away from the music and close to the road. Felt rushed by waiter, food came out at different times about 15 minutes after half our table received our entrees.
Better for lunch than dinner.
Delicious as always!
If your coming here for the location, ambiance, or service, then this restaurant is a great choice. If your coming for the food, go somewhere else. Where do I start? Mixed drinks from the bar, watered down and cheap tasting. My ribeye came out overcooked and bland. I ordered bearnaise with it, which tasted nothing like actual bearnaise. Brussel sprouts were undercooked and no seasoning. Chicken my gf ordered was also overcooked. The creamy garlic palenta was also flavorless and not creamy at all. We should have known to stop there but ordered dessert. The creme brulee was literally the worst I've ever had by far. We still enjoyed ourselves due to the ambiance and great service but just know the food is subpar.
The food is fantastic! We had a table outside near the river. Great place for a date
Food was great, and the ambience was completed with live music. Waiters, waitresses are very kind and right on time. I would like to come back again.
