Trokay is a wonderful find in Truckee. There is so much going on there that is far above and beyond what you would consider for a mountain restaurant. There is definitely a flair for the forward thinking ideas in cooking, the service was among the best we have experienced and the wines by the glass absolutely outstanding. There are still... More

Take a wife and husband from two stellar big city establishments (In NYC) and transplant them to Tahoe and have them open up a stellar collaboration based on the freshest ingredients and you have Trokay. Place is awesome. Food is done a la carte or on tasting menus. We opted for the 4 course menu with the wine pairing and... More

This restaurant was a big disappointment for us and I really wished we had looked at the menu more closely before sitting down at a table. The restaurant is very attractive and the service was excellent. Both my husband and I found the menu selections to be bizarre and had a hard time finding something that sounded appealing. He ordered... More

We were disappointed in the presentation and portion sizes. My husband and I both ordered the trout. It was okay but the small portion of the fish was the only thing on the plate, and I don't consider foraged white pine needles a vegetable. It was also overpriced. We won't go back.

I was in Truckee for work last week and we stumbled upon this hidden gem. On a quiet Monday night off-season, we didn't have high expectations and what we found was incredible. This chic restaurant was impressive! We were immediately warmly greeted and sat. Our waitress was simply lovely and extremely knowledgeable about the menu. It was like we were... More

Truckee is quickly becoming a foodie haven. Over the past year or so I have had the pleasure of dining at Trokay, my go to restaurant whenever in town, probably a half a dozen times. You have a choice of ordering a la carte or prix fixe, with or without wine pairings. First, the service is friendly and attentive -... More

John and Nina have raised the cuisine bar in Truckee. The quality and perfection of the food reflect John's incredible passion and talent in creating tastes, textures and dishes that rival many fine dining restaurants in the US. The twist - fine dining in a beautifully designed Truckee-style setting.

I did not expect to find such an amazing dining experience in Truckee. A drive through town with a rail track passing through. The quality of the service was superb. We were a large party, the waiter was informative without being too intrusive. The wines were another surprise - what a wonderful cellar. The building was part of the historic... More
