Never been to Reno and was looking for a good place to have dinner. Searched open table for a place to go - chose this place because it was situated on the river and had a good menu. We arrived at 5:15 just in time for their weekday happy hour. Great value for most of their appetizers and certain drinks.

Foodwise, the Bruschetta and the Wild River Salad were great! I ordered the Idaho Trout and it was very average. If you are looking for a white fish, that is exactly what you will get. Nothing spectacular about it.

All in all, definitely take advantage of the happy hour (4-6 weekdays) for food and drinks, and this place is a great spot.

Excellent dishes. Really enjoyed the butternut squash hummus with pita, very fresh; salmon with plum chipotle sauce was slightly overdone for my preference and I was not reminded at the time of ordering which would have been helpful but the flavor was excellent. Nice wine list and good service for a very busy Saturday night.

I had steak and scallops which was presented nicely. Unfortunately the steak was over done and very underwhelming. The scallops and the side was tasty, however I was overall disappointed in my meal since the steak was my main reason for my dinner selection.

We usually choose The Wild River Grill on theater nights because it is just across the street from the theater, convenient and good food with menu selections for everyone.

Hostess as friendly and polite. Restaurant has dark decor, busy for a Wednesday night. Service need to be more attentive, we had to keep asking for more water. Waited almost an hour for our meals to arrive. Menu prices were several dollars more than shown on Open Table. Food was okay, meat dishes over cooked, heavy with the oil and butter on side dishes. Not impressed.

I had a bunch of friends raving about this place but we were less than impressed. Our appetizer took awhile which was comped, our service was not great. Server seemed pre occupied with side work instead of table touches and communication. Bathroom was super nasty. Towels everywhere and was an area of opportunity for this establishment. Probably won’t be coming back.

The Bruschetta was absolutely amazing, I could eat it every meal. Love when steak is served with something besides potatoes. A little pricey but well worth it for an occasion, highly recommend.

The food was good, the service was fast. The waiter didn't seem to know much about product and when we asked what the well whiskey was he said he didn't know, but he didn't recommend it, he wasn't sure it was even whiskey.

We were only in town for two nights, but because it was such a great find the first night, we went back for a second time! It is a new favorite in Reno, and since we'll be moving to Reno, it's going to be a wonderful place to eat often!

Usually service is better. Went before Pioneer show for wife's B'Day. Showed up at 625pm for 630 reservation. Order was taken quickly but food didn't show up until 710pm. Asked for bread at 7pm. No time for dessert to make 8pm show. They didn't even say Happy Bday to wife which I had noted on reservation. I guess don't show up on busy Fri/Sat night
