Great food but make sure you have time. Doesn't move fast but good food shouldn't. We got the pre fix with wine pairing which was fabulous.

It's been about a year since we were last there with our family. The dishes were fabulous again, and the service just the right balance of friendly, informative and efficient. Trokay is expensive but the experience exceeds the cost many time over. We're coming back soon.

My husband and I dined the night after Thanksgiving. Robert was our server and took great care of us, including being very mindful of a nut allergy -- thank you! We enjoyed the arugula pear salad and Angus Beef Tenderloin. From the amuse bouche to the coffee and "new take" on petit four, the food was beautifully presented, very delicious,... More

A great place to experience molecular gastronomy. Don't go if you are expecting much of a full meal. Interesting menu items, verbose and frequently poorly informed wait staff who don't really understand the menu and often speak down to the clients. Kind of an odd choice for Truckee but some patrons rave about it. Not on par with similar SF... More

Four course or chefs tasting menu, whichever you select you won't be disappointed. The four course offers two choices per course. The wife and I chose different options so we experienced the full range of this delightful dining experience. Who knew that we'd find such great eats in trucker California. I had the wine pairing and the wife had the... More

We loved it. It definately is expensive but I think is a fair value for what you get. Knowledgeable and timely service provided by friendly and respectful staff. Food was very flavorful yet subtle and presentation was beautiful I was honestly give then 4.5* if that was an option Hamachi, sweetbreads and lamb were my favorites

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
