    Their food quality has changed. I ordered mushroom ravioli and sauce was thin and watery. The beets in the beet chip salad tasted a little burnt.

    Went there for my wife’s birthday. We had octopus which was very good and onion soup. The onion soup was not very good. We each had a salad. I had a Caesar salad which was on the small side. My wife all had the beet salad Which was flavorful but also on the small side. We both love wine. The wine list is very simple and not very interesting. A lot of cheap wines that you see in Safeway for $12-$15 a bottle. We both had a hard time finding a buy the glass wine that we liked. They need to work on their wine list and bring in more high-quality wines especially for their Chardonnay and Pinot noir. We will give the place another try. Perhaps for drinks and appetizers. But I’m not sure I would return for dinner.

    Cute spot along the river; quiet; dog-friendly on the patio. We enjoyed our meal and the service was excellent. The only thing is that the menu isn’t the most vegetarian-friendly. We found good food to eat anyway though. We’ll come back again.

    We really liked our servers, the food and the views. It was a bit loud inside, but it wasn’t overwhelming or distracting.There was a comfortable, less formal feel inside yet the food was that of a more formal restaurant. We will definitely e back to try other dishes.

    Loved this spot. We had a date night, looking for a good place to eat, we had heard about Wild River Grille and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed! I had the mushroom ravioli and my husband had the barbecue pork chop special, both were absolutely delicious. The wine was fantastic and their bruschetta appetizer was amazing. Loved this spot and will definitely go back again.

    Great location right along the river with outside seating in the summer. The four of us had a table outside in great summer weather. We were seated immediately and our waiter, Grant, was at the table in one minute. We all ordered upright martinis or similar. The drinks didn't fill the martini glasses, which was disappointing. The menu was quite varied without being daunting. We each ordered different entrées including fish, meat, and pasta which everyone enjoyed. We will go back.

    We went to Wild River for our Anniversary Dinner. We always go when we are in Reno. Food is always fantastic as well as the service. We love to sit on the patio and listen to the live music. Last night we shared the Rib Eye. It was cooked to perfection and more than we could both eat even though it was split for us (minimal $3 charge) we share to save room for drinks and the awesome Truckee River Mud dessert.

    First the good, our waiter was outstanding, attentive but not intrusive and the staff was very pleasant and accommodating. The kitchen was a bit challenged and dinner arrived prior to the appetizers, not good; however, management proactively removed the cost of the appetizers, very nice touch. We enjoyed the bruschetta appetizer and chicken piccata. The disappointment, the balance of food was mediocre. The short-ribs were listed as a "House Specialty", unfortunately, they were pretty lousy, chewy, fatty, and certainly not slowly braised. The brussels sprouts were good except for the globs of pancetta. The desserts and cocktails were lackluster. Would we go back again? Probably not. It's nice to sit outside by the river but we would explore other options.
