For a special dinner my husband and I choose the prix fix menu with wine pairing. We both thought the wine pairings were exceptional and added a lot to the dinner. I was also very impressed with the breads, biscuit and small cheese puffs. The pastry chef is very good. The service was first class and the food beautifully balanced.... More

Celebrated my 30th birthday here with a group of friends. The staff was extremely entertaining and we had a great time. We all had the chef's tasting menu, and the food was great. Highly recommend!

It is amazing to me how a restaurant like this can gain a positive reputation for tiny servings of so-called gourmet food at expensive prices. Suggest you weigh your cheese slices served as a verbosely complicated and expensive gourmet platter. And, when a private party arrived, our waitress abandoned our table never to be seen again. Yes, the owner apologized.... More

The restaurant is very open and welcoming. All service people were extremely friendly, attentive and willing to provide guidance. The dos was spectacular. I order 3 appetizers instead of an entree and was very satisfied and full. The little treats provided like their bread and palate cleanser were excellent. With six of us there, we tried a wide variety of... More

Wonderful staff. We sat at the bar without a reservation. Had the white wine and port at the end and the cheeses for the cheese tray chosen for us and it was all amazing. Incredible flavors on the cheese tray. Great experience.

Wow! A spectacular birthday dinner for my husband. An amazing assortment of food! Five small tastes to start,then unusual flavors and new ways to prepare familiar ingredients as we moved through the courses. We had the wine pairings with each course. The cheese course was interesting. It would have been wise to skip as we had so much food through... More

This is a very nice fine dining experience. The food is good and served on beautiful platters, presentation is very well done. It's delicious but very expensive-a special occasion type of place

And one of my best experiences in California (and yes in line with some of the heavy weights in wine country!). Creative menu, amazing ingredients, impeccable execution and friendly staff. Chef used to be at Daniels in NYC. Will definitely return and highly recommend.

It had been awhile since we had eaten at Trokay and they're now a go-to place for us! My DH and I had not eaten out for awhile so we decided to go big and ordered the Tasting Menu ($85pp) with the Wine Pairing ($50pp). We had a wonderful dining experience with the interesting, delicious courses and amuse bouche(s). The... More

Jerky and chip dusted with phytoplankton served on a delicate tree branch.... And that was just an amuse bouche (more like an amuse stick). All kidding aside - the prix fix menu was a fantastic choice. Chef John Weatherson has created a very special experience. Well worth the trip from Reno or SF. A must if you are skiing at... More
