Group of 4 friends spent several days enjoying the food truck offerings at Wanderlust and were ready for a nice meal. White table cloths, great service and excellent food. Lovely night out.

We had the burger and the Salmon, both were excellent! The service was excellent and the atmosphere was very warm and comfortable. The waitress, Heather, was very knowledgeable about the menu. I highly recommend this restaurant!

The food for my daughter''s wedding was truly wonderful, everyone raved about it! I highly recommend the short ribs, and others said the Mahi Mahi was also very good.

We stopped in while visiting and had one of the best Wagu beef hamburger ever. The atmosphere was excellent and the wait staff awesome. 5 stars for me can't wait to go back.

Please note: This review is for a restaurant and not for bar area. Bar area has large enclosed space with tables and many people have dinner there. Restaurant has a different menu (see picture of entree side) on the more formal side. We have been here quite a few times back 5-7 years ago and always enjoyed it. Not this... More

We simply were not prepared for how good this restaurant was. For those not fortunate enough to be across the street from Plum Jack’s in Squaw Valley, I would only be exaggerating a little if I said that for your next dinner out, you should book a flight to Reno, rent a car, and drive up to Squaw Valley in...
