Sat at the bar on a Saturday night for a quick drink and ended up having one of the best dinners we have had in along time. Great local flair with live music, very attentive bar staff and the food was perfect. Spent the entire evening at the bar listening to some great music and having a great time. Would... More

I used to live in Tahoe many years ago and Moody's was a godsend then! Its been years but they are only getting better! Ahi Poke, Shishito peppers in a dipping suave with preserved lemon and sea salt, Mushroom pizza, Ribeye with bone marrow sauce and chard. All to die for. House wine, both red and white, an Itialian wine,... More

From live music to comfortable seating to great food and drink this is the place to go in Truckee. We ate dinner here with a friend and found the experience to be thoroughly enjoyable including such matters as clean rest rooms, good seating, attentive staff, live music and great food. Our evening began with wine and Martini's all good selections... More

One of the best burgers we've ever had. Ground daily from Nieman ranch beef, and seasoned perfectly. Tomatoe bisque not bad either!! Our typical Truckee go-to.

On Saturday night, we had a 5-star worthy experience at Moody's. The server was impeccable, the dishes delicious and our overall experience was so great, we decided to go back on Sunday. Our expectations were super high, having had such excellent service and the food having been superb. Meh. Wish we didn't come back. One of our dishes was half... More

We had a very fine lunch of beet salad, parmesan truffle fries & calamari, topped off by a made to order Pomegranate martini and a Stella Artois Just what the doctor ordered and as good as we've had anywhere! Kind, efficient service too!

Don't expect to have a conversation in here where the diners shout at each other in shrill voices. Eat-shattering, deafening. The waiter could not hear our order and had to lean into the table with his head hovering just in front of us. Their attempt at big-city sophisticated food did not meet the mark as all dishes were just average.... More

We were very pleased with this Bistro's food and service. Our server was Billy and he was very pleasant helping we four seniors with answering all our confusing questions. We had their 'hamburgers' that were outstanding! We highly recommend this choice on their menu.

Truckee has been renewing its downtown corridor with a variety of shops and dining venues. Moody's was an unexpected find for us. The food was excellent and well-prepared to order. Our waitress, Lindsay, was knowledgeable of the offerings and made suggestions for food and wine pairing. The other wait staff were very attentive to needs - water, clearing plates, providing...

A really great place for tippling and bar menu dining. I think the bar menu is both more interesting and varied than the full dining menu. Service is reliably good and very friendly. House cocktails rival SF
