Ate dinner after a very long drive from Nevada-it was getting late and we were very hungry and not inclined to drive around looking for other places. This is conveniently located in the Truckee Hotel in Truckee and has a nice atmosphere. Menu is a mix of various dishes from steaks and seafood, many of which are $32 and up,... More

The atmosphere in the bar in the Truckee Hotel and in their restaurant, Moody's, is what the name implies: "moody." With its deep oranges and reds and black accents. Combined with live music in the bar and an eclectic mix of Jazz and French and period music in the restaurant , it only served to enhance the atmosphere, which feels... More

We had a great dinner here including good martini's. 😊 A welcome spot after a long road trip drive. Such a great town and old town area!

Everything was alacart and very pricey for what you got. Menu descriptions sounded creative and yummy, but what we got was average and disappointing. Very noisy place. Good drinks and great wait staff. But, don't think we would return.

Sat at the bar on a Saturday night for a quick drink and ended up having one of the best dinners we have had in along time. Great local flair with live music, very attentive bar staff and the food was perfect. Spent the entire evening at the bar listening to some great music and having a great time. Would... More

I used to live in Tahoe many years ago and Moody's was a godsend then! Its been years but they are only getting better! Ahi Poke, Shishito peppers in a dipping suave with preserved lemon and sea salt, Mushroom pizza, Ribeye with bone marrow sauce and chard. All to die for. House wine, both red and white, an Itialian wine,... More

From live music to comfortable seating to great food and drink this is the place to go in Truckee. We ate dinner here with a friend and found the experience to be thoroughly enjoyable including such matters as clean rest rooms, good seating, attentive staff, live music and great food. Our evening began with wine and Martini's all good selections... More

One of the best burgers we've ever had. Ground daily from Nieman ranch beef, and seasoned perfectly. Tomatoe bisque not bad either!! Our typical Truckee go-to.

On Saturday night, we had a 5-star worthy experience at Moody's. The server was impeccable, the dishes delicious and our overall experience was so great, we decided to go back on Sunday. Our expectations were super high, having had such excellent service and the food having been superb. Meh. Wish we didn't come back. One of our dishes was half... More

We had a very fine lunch of beet salad, parmesan truffle fries & calamari, topped off by a made to order Pomegranate martini and a Stella Artois Just what the doctor ordered and as good as we've had anywhere! Kind, efficient service too!
