We were told to come here and it gets big reviews. I think it is that they have big portions. The meat was not all that flavorful. The service was good. Seasoned waiters. I think I would go somewhere else. It just wasn't special as a dinner. You need reservations unless you want to wait and wait.

This was our second time enjoying a meal here. We made reservations for 2 couples during the early bird special 5-6:30pm. The interior allows you to forget you are directly across from an arcade and step into a charming, well appointed oasis to relax and enjoy the food and the service. 3 of us ordered the fish special - Chilean...

A little treasure ... Nice steakhouse - reminiscent of old Vegas ( Mahogany wood / red leather banquets). All aspects were done well ... Fabulous salad( Caesar) and yummy baked potato ( why can't I make them like this at home?). Steaks good and reasonable pricing. The only problem is the location - in circus circus Casino. A far jaunt... More

Very amateur for high-end steakhouse. Host informed our party of 3 of two for one primerib special but we would have to wait 1 hour tho room was less than half full. OK waited in bar in full sight of host and we're called in 45 minutes. At that point she advised they were out of primerib 30 minutes prior.... More

Dining on New Years eve, we found the restaurant packed but the staff was efficiently servicing customers. Ok, my wine order was a bit delayed and came near the end of our salad. Our meats were cooked exactly as ordered but we both found them to be over-salted (we gave up salt 20 years ago and our blood pressure shows... More

All side items were excellent except the steak. Had the ribeye - slightly chewy which is unusual for a well marbled ribeye!!!

Please don't pass by this gem of a restaurant on your next visit to Reno!! We were visiting for a service club convention and 8 of us were looking for a good restaurant. One of our group just happened on this restaurant off of the mezzanine level of Circus Circus. Now, I honestly would not expect such an elegant spot... More

Went there based on the great reviews. Decor is great (masculine but warm), very effective service, good quality food and copious portions. A little disappointed with the meat: good quality, but not outstanding (had fillet and ribeye) -not better than on our barbecue. Great garlic mashed, but subpar baked potato (not creamy enough). Prices are high: US$ 50 for the... More
