HAPPY HOUR! HAPPY HOUR! HAPPY HOUR! Half price for EVERYTHING on their HH menu, including all the drinks. It's only from 4-6p, so don't miss it! Our party of 7 showed up about 10 minutes before they even opened for Happy Hour, and there were already at least 20 people waiting in the lobby area. The line itself should be... More

Romeo was our waiter and Stephen was his assistant. Both of them worked well together, providing seamless service that was friendly, efficient, and professional. We noticed that they treated each diner as a welcome guest. We would be very pleased to see them again next visit. This visit, we ordered the tower of tuna, the caprese salad, and the Wagyu... More

Happiest of "Happy Hours" Great selection of Coctails and small plates at half price. Well worth a visit. Our server Matthew was outstanding. Extremely professional producing very happy customers.

The reason I look forward to eating at Bistro Napa is the truffle and dessert wine pairings to complete the meal -- even after I have stuffed myself with good food, there is still room for this sweet treat at the end and it's a great price/value.

We went here for our anniversary. The waiter was very attentive. The amuse bouche of proscuitto wrapped melon was delicious. We were offered the evening special of a complimentary glass of champagne. It was very good and I told the waiter how fitting it was because it was our anniversary. The breads were delicious, especially the onion roll! When the... More

Nice room, great service and some of the best food in Reno. Not cheap but well worth it. One of the best happy hours too gets busy because of it.

The food was very delicious. We had the lamb meat balls for an appetizer. They were very tasty. I had the braised short rib and it was awesome. The staff was very attentive.

We have loved eating here every time. I had a steak cooked the wrong way on our first trip, which was handled so well, by our waiter, the manager, and even the cook apologized. Fantastic service, fantastic food, love the atmosphere ~ my favorite place to eat in Reno if you're planning on a nice dinner. Definitely higher end.
