We have been scouting restaurants in Reno for several months. We want good food, service, ambiance, and location without hitting the casinos. We found a gem in 4th Street Bistro.
The food is terrific. Very fresh, creative without craziness, selection is varied in all categories. I have had the lamb chops (succulent) more than once. The scallops with risotto were melt-in-your-mouth. I love the beet salad. The bar makes a great martini.
Wine list has great variety. Service is amazing - incredibly professional including the uniforms.
I am amazed at the variety of attire by the customers. It ranges from beautiful prom couples to guys in shorts who look like they just got off the golf course. Regardless, the atmosphere is friendly and comfortable.
Reservations are recommended but we have often called an hour or so before we want to arrive and there has been a table available. Once, the owner suggested we come 15 minutes earlier as she had a large party coming in and wanted to insure the kitchen could fill our orders first. How's that for service?
