This is a must! All the courses were delicious and well presented. We had a bottle of Hungarian white wine since we went to Budapest this year and enjoy the wine very much

An exceptional dinner. The babaganoush app was a real treat. We had the duck and halibut entrees and both were amazing. Will be back when next in Truckee.

My husband and I wandered downtown Truckee looking for a place to eat and stumbled upon this place. We were still in our ski gear - thank goodness they didn't have a dress code! We had the 4-course prix fixe menu and ordered different things...More
