I dined at Restaurant Orozko with two other business travelers while staying at The Nugget. We ordered drinks in the lounge area outside the restaurant before going in for dinner. Shortly after we arrived they had a live band. They were pretty good and some people danced, but the band was way too loud for any conversation. At dinner, both... More

Start with a salad and don't be shy of ordering the House Roquefort vinaigrette. Its wonderful. We both ordered the Veal Osso Bucco. The meat was braised to perfection. It fell off the bone. You have a choice of garlic mashed potatoes, rice or baked potatoes. There is a side of various vegetables from broccolini, asparagus and beets to rutebaga.... More

Its been several years since we ate dinner at Orozkos. What a wonderful surprise! My husband and I both loved the tapas menu. It has the feel of the food you get if you do the wine tastings in the bar area on Thursdays. We started with 4 plates for 2 of us. We ended up ordering a 5th -... More

I accidentally found Orozko while looking online for the Nugget Buffet menu. If anything needs improvement at this restaurant, it may be their marketing department. I live 5 miles away, and am a Reno native who has visited the Nugget hundreds of times – yet never knew it existed! According to their extensive online wine list, Orozko has been around... More

Several friends and I went to this restaurant and all were disappointed. One woman got sick from the heavy sauce they put on the steak. My chicken had bones and skin - it's been a long time since that has happened when I ordered chicken. Paella was decidedly poor - seafood was not fresh. It was very noisy and difficult... More
