My husband and I enjoyed another delicious meal at this cozy, French restaurant. The Chardonnay was excellent, the pork belly... succulent, and the bread pudding... divine! Such a warm, welcoming atmosphere! Thank you Tina and Gilles!

We have driven by this restaurant for sometime and when some friends mentioned going there for "Date Night" we were happy to go. The overall experience was very good and the food was wonderful!! The price for a glass of wine was shocking though! However, we would go back! Be sure and make reservations.

I drive by this restaurant almost daily and live in the neighborhood where it is located. I decided to have dinner there on the recommendation of a close friend and to listen to the music of my good friend and colleague, Joe LaChew. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was welcoming, and the music was amazing! Thank you to Tina... More

I have been going to this quaint and delightful French Bistro almost since the day it opened. The food is fantastic and fresh and the service is outstanding. They used to serve lunch and dinner but unfortunately for me, they now only serve dinner and occasionally have a day where they do a crepe lunch. It is small and intimate... More

Zis is one of zee best restaurants in Carson City! An inventive menu, wonderful delicious food, and friendly service. I would recommend an attempt to make the decor a bit cozier.

This place is a true find, and worth making a trip to experience! It is a very intimate atmosphere, but cozy and warm. The food is outstanding - fresh, creative and excellent. The specials are consistently good. The service is very professional but friendly. Definitely worth the effort.

You would never know, that inside was such a special place. Tina meets you as you enter and you are seated, either at a lone or shared table. Everyone there is nice and the conversations lead to friendships. The table tops are paper and supplied with crayons for your artistic pleasures. I have left many pictorial statements. From New Years,... More
