I had read good reviews and was disappointed in this place. Food is expensive and quality is average. Props to the bar staff for making me feel very welcome when traveling solo for work.

There are not enough words to describe the excellent service and food options at Bistro Napa during their daily happy hour. I have been there many times and everyone I take falls in love with it. No one has a better quality or value in Reno.

Very nice happy hour option. Delicious tapas that are sufficient in size to satisfy hunger vice over stuffing oneself at the buffet. Tables are close so can get a bit noisy

I did not realize in was in the Atlantis a Casino until after the reservation was made. I am not a fan of casino dining, but the reviews were great so we went. It's a... More

We enjoyed a very nice dinner at Bistro Napa. The decor and setting are beautiful, quiet, and relaxing. The wait staff were very attentive and not at all stuffy with the manager passing through to make sure everything was ok. The food is delicious, I had the best onion soup I've ever eaten. It is not to be missed. Everything... More

The happy hour is amazing! Great prices, great food! Get there when it starts, at four, because tables in the bar fill up fast and that's where you have to sit. We also went for dinner in the regular restaurant another night and I wasn't as impressed. The menu sounds good, but doesn't taste as well as described. I much... More

Food was very good - lamp shank, squid steak with lobster. Serving of champagne (just a little of it) as you sit down was a nice touch and then a surprise serving of pink cotton candy on a dish after your meal - felt like a kid again! Very well prepared food, great service - classy but unpretentious. We will... More
