A cool Reno on a commercial building in a out of the way spot. Great food, diverse menu and excellent service. Try the truffle gnocchi as an appetizer. Really tasty.

This place is trying to be something better than what it is. The ambiance is faux trendy. The food was bland. The scallops were only seared on one side and tasteless. The risotto was tasteless. The short ribs were good. But maybe a 5 out of 10. The service overall was attentive but it took a long time to get... More

Ambiance is exactly the same--warm and delightful! Reception enthusiastic.. Took a long time for our pre-dinner cocktails. Cauliflower soup was nice and hot, small portion, and a bit tasteless. Albacore tuna was the special, and excellent. Chicken and the arctic char---very flavourful. Salads--very fresh! Wines were exquisite(one bottle corked), and We finished with ports. The outstanding weak-link was certainly our... More

Maybe it's the 1/2 price wine talking, but their 9th Anniversary dinner was the best meal we had here. Every course was great, well presented and of appropriate size. The pork belly was my particular favourite, but it was all superb.

As this was a pre-arranged menu, I cannot speak to the normal menu, but as a guest at a party of 50 or 60 people, I was very well-treated. The staff was all very efficient and worked their way around guests who were often in the pathways. The food was abundant and delicious from appetizers through soup, salad, entrée (for... More

We branched out from our more "typical" dishes and perhaps that was a mistake. I had the romaine with calamari salad, pork belly and gnocchi and while it was all good, I cannot say I was inspired by my meal. The better half had the three-course tasting menu, and while the fried halumi second was great, the Scottish trout main... More

The restaurant was awesome, atmosphere was really nice, simple table set-up. The food was tasty, everything was balance. Servers were very friendly. Even though it is a fine dining restaurant, they could definitely step up in their portions a bit more. We ordered the Argula Salad excluding the prosciutto ( do not eat pork) (best salad I honestly ever had),... More

Enjoyed a very nice dinner last night with 2 others. Excellent service (perhaps a bit slow but we had lots of conversations to cover!). Excellent food, very good wine list and great atmosphere.

The halibut was dry, lacking flavor. Even adding hot sauce to it did not improve the taste. Beef tenderloin was okay; but nothing special. Beef tartare was sweet and spicy (the sauces were overpowering the taste of the actual beef). Lobster tempura- nothing special. Chocolate cake - hard, although the colour was dark, it wasn't rich chocolate feel. What stood... More
