In Reno at the Silver Legacy for a service club convention, several of us got together, walked a few blocks for dinner at this basque restaurant. Nevada has many basque restaurants and I have been to those in Elko and Winnemucca. The Reno one is a step above, perhaps because it is in a bigger city. This Reno place offers... More

Great place for family celebrations! The food is served family style, just like at home, so its very comfy. It is noisy enough so you don't feel awkward if your crew gets noisy or one of your kids cries, but not so loud that is is not enjoyable. Also, there's a drink called Picon Punch that will put hair on... More

What a great place to meet people. You sit at a table with at least 6 strangers, you order your main course and sides. Everyone shares the sides, you enjoy the meal as the conversation builds. The free wine with dinner guarantees good interesting conversation. If you do not like a loud, joyful atmosphere you should go somewhere else. This... More

The food was ok, but the hustle and bustle and the whole experience is a must. The lamb was fantastic, but the sides were just so so. The portions are generous and the place hops! Very very fun!

Louis' is a fun place to enjoy dinner with friends. Our group of 5 found it to be a great friendly atmosphere. Had dined there many times before, but it was fun to share it with someone who hadn't been there before. Love the casual, family dinning experience. Bar area can be noisy, but it adds to the character of... More

We enjoyed the 7 course meal and company a few blocks from the casino much more than the casino restaurant and it was much less expensive - win- win!

I love ethnic food, and had never had Basque. It is served family style (even if you're alone), so the quantities are enormous. Nonetheless, it was a good value, and the food was excellent. I would definitely go again if ever I'm in Reno.

Can't believe we went all the way from Spain to eat at a Basque restaurant! We were invited by a Spanish friend who just moved to Reno - she tried it and now takes everyone there. And for good reason. Great food, generous portions, friendly service by family members (at least at lunch while we were there). We shared soup,... More

We made reservations for dinner Saturday night. There were a few concerts going on in addition to it being Saturday night so I'm glad we made the reservations and I strongly advise doing so. This is a basque family style restaurant so reservations guarantee you a seat and you will sit at a long table with other people, in the... More
