Trokay is by far the best restaurant in the Reno-Tahoe area. The decor is natural and rustic - wood, and brick with well-spaced tables so that you don't have neighbors screaming down your neck. The service is absolutely excellent. Staff know the menu, beers and wines (there is no hard liquor), and can explain all of the odd things on... More

From beginning to the end of the evening a meal to do again! The service was well team united. They all help each other even the chef owner comes out now that was a nice touch. You don't see that often and he came out to each table with an item. The food we'll be hungry some may be smaller... More

This is one of the most brilliant meals I've ever had...anywhere. It is a beautiful, spacious rustic urban space sparcely furnished. Each plate was well thought out and lovely. It is owner operated and the experience left me feeling well taken care of. The most expensive dinner I've had in the mountains and the greatest value. Can't wait to bring... More

We had such a wonderfully relaxed dinner here and I would love to go back to try more! Didn't get to experience the full tasting menu but everything we had was amazing and I would love to try some of the amazing coffee's they had available. Great culinary experience yet without seeming too esoteric. Let's go back!

Trokay is a wonderful find in Truckee. There is so much going on there that is far above and beyond what you would consider for a mountain restaurant. There is definitely a flair for the forward thinking ideas in cooking, the service was among the best we have experienced and the wines by the glass absolutely outstanding. There are still... More

Take a wife and husband from two stellar big city establishments (In NYC) and transplant them to Tahoe and have them open up a stellar collaboration based on the freshest ingredients and you have Trokay. Place is awesome. Food is done a la carte or on tasting menus. We opted for the 4 course menu with the wine pairing and... More

This restaurant was a big disappointment for us and I really wished we had looked at the menu more closely before sitting down at a table. The restaurant is very attractive and the service was excellent. Both my husband and I found the menu selections to be bizarre and had a hard time finding something that sounded appealing. He ordered... More

We were disappointed in the presentation and portion sizes. My husband and I both ordered the trout. It was okay but the small portion of the fish was the only thing on the plate, and I don't consider foraged white pine needles a vegetable. It was also overpriced. We won't go back.
