I did not expect to find such an amazing dining experience in Truckee. A drive through town with a rail track passing through. The quality of the service was superb. We were a large party, the waiter was informative without being too intrusive. The wines were another surprise - what a wonderful cellar. The building was part of the historic... More

I agree with the reviewers who have said that this food is fully comparable to the finest restaurants in the Bay Area (Gary Danko, French Laundry, etc.)-- or anywhere else for that matter. Service was attentive and knowledgeable, but totally unpretentious. The owner came to our table and chatted with us for a while. Dress was very casual, as you'd... More

I almost gave it two stars because the food here is quite good for Truckee, but I couldn't do it after our experience here the other day. We waited 2 hours from the time we sat down until our appetizers arrived, and it was another 20 or so minutes later that our main course arrived. Getting our main course after... More

We had another great dinner at Trokay. Sea bass, cheese plate, desserts were wonderful. Can't wait to return.

I am rarely impressed by a restaurant. The food is never surprising and always something you have had a dozen times before. My wife and I decided to try Trokay without having heard about it nor read any review. We were amazed by the originality and quality of the dishes and tastefulness of the presentations. The service was impeccable, the... More

We went to a family lunch, with two little ones. The hostess was great, found a location for the little ones. The food was great - especially the pastry plate, and the BLTA. The pork belly was wonderful.

Drove up during a busy, very windy day today. Really looking forward to a wonderful lunch, based on the reviews. First of all, we liked the venue and the Hostess was very nice and extremely pleasant. But, after that, we were very disappointed. Asked for lemon with our water, took several requests (finally asked the Hostess). Next, ordered the onion... More

Traveling an a city like Truckee, anything you expect except a stylish restaurant. So I'm pretty surprised to write this review for a restaurant that I found excellent, but in the middl of a small village. They offered us some pretty interesting appetizer, including something gluten free prepared just for me. As a main course i got sliced lamb with... More

We ate here with friends who wanted to have the chefs tasting menu. Since everybody at the table has to have the same we also had it .At $140 this is way more expensive then any other restaurant in Truckee. You do get 10 courses and and Amuse Bouche for this price. All of us had eaten at the French... More

Ordered the Breakfast sandwich and it was appalling! Small hard biscuit with one egg on top with cheese and sausage. The biscuit was so hard you had to cut it with a knife. All in all very disappointing.
