A nice upscale Bistro. The Atlantis Steakhouse was closed, so we chose to dine at Bistro Napa. This is fine dining, so the meals are expensive. They have an extensive listing of fine wines, and their menu has a wide variety of Chef-prepared selections. Our Server was extremely attentive and had great knowledge of the dishes and pairing options on... More

Wandered in without a reservation to this amazing experience and left knowing this was the biggest jackpot I would get on my visit to Reno. Hubby & I enjoyed the starters and the wine list. The main courses were delish, I had the chicken special that was crispy on the outside and oh, so moist. Our waiter, Malik, was ever... More

This was one of the most amazing dinners we have ever had, yes it cost $200 including tip but we would do it again without hesitation. On the 2nd floor of the Atlantis casino in a very upscale atmosphere but you can wear shorts without a shirt and tie and they will still wait on you. The food was amazing... More

This upbeat and upscale Bistro offers some wonderful appetizers and adult beverages. The lobster escargot is to die for. A wonderful array of flatbreads will please any palate.

Didn't know what to expect with a happy hour beginning at 4pm. Now I get it. The half price appetizers along with the cocktails have the place filling up by 4:30. Had the escargot , sliders and a salad along with with a few 10 Cane Mojitos. Awesome and still under $30. Staff has it down and the clientele is... More

This place is amazing. I was there for a long weekend with family and perused the menu in the foyer. Thought we would give it a try. We are from Napa, CA so going to a place in Reno that claims to be like the Napa Valley... well I was a bit skeptical. But we had an amazing meal with... More

The ambiance of this restaurant is excellent, and the value at 1/2 price of a great menu and high end wines is hard to believe. We go there often and will continue to do so.

Once again we have gone to the Bistro Napa at the Atlantis casino in Reno, and took advantage of their nightly "social hour" from 4 - 6pm where all the small dishes and drinks are at half price. Admittedly, their full price is a bit on the high side, but what a bargain at half price! The quality is outstanding... More
