I think that's the name of the restaurant in the Overland Hotel. Anyway, It's a funky place to eat and to scope out. It has interesting memorabilia on the walls of the restaurant. The food - at least the choices we made - was okay,...We ordered the fried calamari, fried fish (battered), lamb soup, and Basque chicken with a side of pasta with marinara sauce. Since we wanted to try different dishes, we split everything. The portions weren't large, though. There is also a bar in the hotel. Of the things we ordered, the lamb soup was the most flavorful. The Basque chicken was grilled, but there was no special seasoning that I could detect.More

It was a unique experience. It is Basque dining. I really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. It is open dining so you may have someone sitting next to you or across from you that you don't know. So introduce yourself and enjoy the company!

I've never rated a restaurant this low before. We had four dinners and saw/heard about two others at the table next to ours. This restaurant advertises Basque style, but that is almost a misnomer. Please don't judge Basque restaurants by this one. The Overland's dining...room has a lot of atmosphere and is very nice if you enjoy antique buildings. The large common tables are Basque as are some dinners where the side dishes are served family style. There, the Basque similarity ends. Neither the food nor service is in Basque style. The restaurant was nearly empty when we arrived. It took quite awhile to be seated - no hostess or wait staff was on the floor. The one person was in the back. When we were seated, the wait person didn't take drink orders. The menu was very confusing - you really couldn't tell which dinners were family style and which weren't. The pricing on the dinners was a mystery - you needed to ask. It took a very long time for the wait staff to re-appear to take orders. The wait wasn't able to adequately explain the menu, but did manage to tell us most of the dinners on the menu weren't available, just two of the 6 or 7 listed along with a couple of burgers and kiddie plates. There was no daily special as printed on the menu. We finally ordered, my husband said that the bill would be interesting since we really didn't have an idea of the cost. We ordered rib eye steaks listed at $20 with the family style side dishes (when the bill came, they turned out to be $30). Our friends ordered meals without the sides. The wait staff harshly and unsmilingly told our friends that they couldn't have any of our sides. The wait staff still didn't take drink orders - we had to flag her down some time later. The couple at the next table were leaving and were very upset with their dinners - the only other one available other than the steak was the seafood platter. They said it was frozen food and straight out of a box. We saw it - little breaded shrimp that were nearly unrecognizable. Not the usual fresh shrimp seen at real Basque restaurants. The couple said they weren't offered the dessert that came with the meal and they paid for but were too upset to even ask about it. We should have canceled our orders and left right then since this was a sign of bad things to come. The salad served was bagged with a few tomatoes and cheese on top. The house dressing was terrible. The pasta was runny with a sweet thick sauce - canned spaghetti would have been better in this case. The FROZEN French fries came that had a sweet seasoning - Basque restaurants serve signature hand cut/fresh potato French fries. The CANNED lima beans with ham were actually pretty good. The steaks were big, paper thin and as such, couldn't be cooked medium rare. They were ok for flavor which wasn't much of anything. Most times sauce is a no-no on a good steak. If offered, take it and use it. Dessert consisted of frozen lava cake and mousse concoctions I've seen in the grocery store. Pretty bad. You won't get a paper bill at this restaurant - the wait staff brings her ipad to your table with the amount owed. You pay cash or swipe your card on a cube attached to the ipad to pay. If you don't understand this system, the wait staff gets angry with you and raises her voice trying to explain it. Happened to the people next to us. We paid $18/plate more for the steak at this restaurant for crap than we pay at our local Basque restaurant that is excellent and where everything is homemade.More

I guess this is a recently reopened restaurant in a old historic hotel. The basque type cooking we were looking for is no longer available but the basque type dinner where you are served everything from soup and salad, two entrees to dessert is available...and probably enough for two. The hamburgers are made with juicy and tasty ground rib-eye . We had the Rodeo Burger, chives, cheddar cheese and a big hamburger patty, tomatoes, pickles and lettuce with Basque fries. The butter beans we substituted for one order of the fries were delicious. A dinner salad with tomatoes, artichoke hearts and a scoop of their cranberry chicken was very good. Soft drinks and wine come with dinner, we had the merlot which was pretty good. So how can you beat 2 great burgers, a shared dinner salad, fries, beans and 3 glasses of wine for less than $25. All served in a historic western hotel dining room complete with memorabilia. We stopped here going to and returning from Great Basin National Park.More

Very recently I decided to try again the Restaurant.. The Restaurant has a sordid history ranging from excellent to mediocore.and in-between. This time the salad was average, the beans excellent, the pasta still had uncooked ends and the sauce was barely tolerable at best. Now...the steak, ribeye medium rare. It was only 3/8 inch thick for a medium rare? It was flavorless and compared to a piece of wet cardboard with A-1 sauce the cardboard would win. I should have accepted the complimentary wine. Based on the meal it was probably a sage choice.More

The grand opening was June 8th 2013 and Kathy and I came for dinner on the 9th.The new owner of this Basque institution that was constructed in 1907 completely remodeled and beautifully kept the old Basque Boarding House feel. Any previous reviews of this restaurant...are meaningless. We had the "set" meal which consisted of soup,green salad,bread,beans,beef steaks and a fantastic creme brulee . I also had a Picon from the bar which needed a Basque touch . The soup was a vegetable,tomato base and good. The salad was good, the house dressing very good. We especially liked the beans ,beef broth and lots of meat. The beef steaks were very thin but perfectly seasoned. For my taste the steaks were too well done ,I did not ask for or was not asked how they should be cooked .The owner Eshale,(chef Esale) came to our table and asked if there was anything she could do to improve our dining experience .Kathy and I were both impressed with her manner,appearance and wanting our input. Her background also includes Chef Shale Catering . As with all new ventures there are a few growing pains.We enjoyed our dinner ,Rachael served us and looked after our every need, she is efficient and very friendly. .We were early for dinner but were seated anyway and it gave us a chance to visit and get some background on the new remodel . This is a good dining experience and we will be back !!!!!!More
