Very Laid Back

It's best to be hungry since they serve a lot of food. We were a party of 6 so we had the table to ourselves but we could have shared. They started with bread, then soup, then salad, tongue and beans and this was before the entree. They serve a large sirloin steak that was over cooked after I... read more

This is the "fancier" of the two Basque places I tried...which is funny, because it seems more like a bar that serves food than a restaurant. But man, the food was great. Started with what I think was the best Bloody Mary I've ever had. Then soup, salad, lamb, shrimp...all nicely prepared, and with the subtle, unique Basque array of... More

A DDD joint. I came here in July for dinner. You are served and seated family style. You will not leave hungry! I had steak (cooked beautifully), salad, chorizo & beans, soup, paella, french fries and ice cream. Don't bother going to the casino to fill up; support a local business instead!

Fun spot to go with a large group of friends. Very loud and almost impossible to talk to each other. Don't expect a nice, romantic dinner. Food was very mediocre. Our group ordered a leg of lamb, lamb chops, NY steak, and sweetbreads. None of it was amazing. Meats were tough and kinda bland. Dessert was a piece of cheese... More

This place is amazing. Very good TODD and awesome taste. Lamb dip is amazing. Never go through RENO without stopping. Drinks are awesome as well!

Busy Friday night. I had the sirloin steak. Everyone gets the same sides which are soup, beans, salad, muscles, garlic fries and bread. A carafe of red table wine come with dinner. You also get a choice for dessert between vanilla ice cream with chocolate syrup or some cheese and grapes. All good. Plus we ordered the traditional pican punch... More

Little neighborhood restaurant in emerging area next to brewery (and bus depot). Family run, great staff, friendly and informative. EXCELLENT lamb dip sandwich - bread was lovely, but the lamb was like BUTTER it was so tender and flavorful. The garlic fries were out of this world - vampires beware. The chorizo hamburger was very tasty. A MUST GO! Full... More

Dinner comes family style to tables of 8. If you are a couple, as we are, you are seated with 6 strangers, who soon become friends as you share the multiple courses. Dinner comes with a glass of house wine, which is a nice touch. Not only was the food plentiful, but it was also very tasty, particularly the lamb.

I love the Basque restaurants in my hometown of Boise, so I was excited when I found a listing for this restaurant and realized it was only a few blocks from the Ramada Reno where we were staying. I didn't realize it was family style at first, but our foursome was game for it. Two brothers from Winnemucca were added... More

They put us at a table with another family, we sat down at the 2 end seats. Hostess told us to move down, we have other people coming. I told her they can sit in middle. Then another person came. They lumped our dinner with his, which I thought was very odd. Didn't even know this person. We felt very... More
