Fantastic food, friendly staff

Dinned to celebrate the graduation of one of our children. While the dinner itself was memorable (we chose the Chef's Tasting menu), the service was painfully slow this evening. This becomes an issue when you have over 10 dishes to go. The quality however was excellent and the waiters very friendly.

We didn't make reservations anywhere on a very busy Saturday night in Truckee. After checking several other restaurants we decided to try Trokay because the menu looked very good. Even though we didn't have reservations they seated us much faster than we expected. All of the employees were very nice and the service was prompt and efficient. We chose the... More

Lovely dining room, professional wait staff (a rarity in Truckee) beautiful food that tastes as good as it looks. Tip: Go for it and have the Prix Fixe paired with wine and be open to new taste combinations.

A true culinary experience. One of the best gourmet restaurants we have ever been to. They started us with buttermilk biscuits with heirloom pepper jelly, then we had the Santa Barbara mussels in an extraordinary cream sauce and two salads - one a squash carpaccio with mozzarella and the other winter greens, both superb. I had the kauai shrimp with... More

John and Nyna Weatherson, owners and chefs of Restaurant Trokay have created the best restaurant in Truckee. Inovative food, fabulous cheese courses, good wine list. And restaurant manager Roxy Dominguez makes sure that the front of the house runs smoothly. Great experience

last night meal...sat down with our teenage boys and they had frowns on their faces as they reviewed the menu. we talked them into ordering a few things and as the waitress started bringing the courses they were bowled over. (they especially loved the grapefruit ball that 'exploded' in their mouthes!) everything was incredible - our very finicky 19 year... More

The best restaurant in Lake Tahoe. Unrivaled service, gorgeous, playful food simply bursting with flavor and a wine list for the ages. Unique in the Tahoe area, this is fine dining on a level associated with more metropolitan areas. The general manager is extremely knowledgeable as are the servers you'd be foolish not to consult with them regarding the wine... More

Trokay rivals some of the best restaurants in the Bay Area, if not nationwide. A very unexpected treat. Had a fantastic Prix Fixe meal with the wine pairing. Service was superb. Everyone made sure we had a great experience. We'll definitely be back.
