We came with a group of friends to prove the perfect meal we had a few times some years ago but totally disappointed this time ! All the steaks was over-cooked, and some was burnt. I was so embarrassing to bring them here. It has changed too much. We would not come again.

The filet mignon itself was great! The side portion was too small, the mashed potato was not from real potato (it was the powder mashed potato) and made not with butter. Too bad. The house salad was below the average. They don't had apple juice (or orange juice? Can't remember). They served water with ice cubes and it tasted worst... More

Great atmosphere and excellent service with, of course, great food. We were only in Reno for one night so I'm glad we chose this restaurant for dinner. Everyone was most attentive and friendly with the delightful main course delivered in almost no time at all.

The atmosphere was somewhat nice and the hostess was very sweet but it ended there. We were hastily sat and silverware slapped down and not a word from the server and she was gone for some time. Then she came back and I ordered a drink but she came back and said they were out of that particular rum.... Soooo... More

Went for the early bird special and there's a good selection for entrees. Had the filet mignon and a nice glass of Chardonnay. Excellent service. The special runs from 5:30 to 6:30.

we ordered the early dinner special of Prime rib and my husband had the filet. Both were cooked perfectly and were good cuts of meat. We ordered the oysters Rockefeller which were decent but nothing that blew us away. Dinners were decent portions and we enjoyed our meals. I would recommend this place. The waiter was very attentive.

Our dining experience here was absolutely wonderful. The beautiful and cosy restaurant created a romantic experience for my partner and I. We enjoyed the stuffed mushrooms as an entrée, the salmon and the steak with lobster soup as a side! Delicious and cooked to perfection. Our waiter Matu was fabulous. And for the quality the price was amazing. highly recommended-... More
