Fantastic food and service. if you like serenity, go during lunch, if you like live music and louder voices, go at night.

Moody's has several yummy itmes on their menu. They have a very cool bar and "old Truckee" atmosphere. Its in the Truckee Hotel which is a cool old building.

This is a lovely restaurant in Truckee. But I think it thinks it is in San Francisco. The food is the diverse, well-made and the service is pretty good. But the food is not that great and not worthy of the prices and the wait to get in.

My lovely wife took me on a great road trip to see the beautiful snow at Tahoe. While heading home we decided to stop in Truckee for dinner. Moody's is a low keyed hangout in the heart of Truckee. Great food and wine. Wonderful staff and a wonderful atmosphere makes this a place not to miss!

Moody’s is located in The Truckee Hotel, right in the heart of downtown Truckee. The atmosphere is dark and quaint. There are several tables and a few booths along the wall.

It doesn't matter what time of day, this place is always packed. We sampled both lunch and dinner here and enjoyed it each time. I'd suggest if younger a large group that you try breaking it into smaller groups or you may have a long wait. Very accommodating staff.

It's always a special treat to dine at Moody's Bistro. From the excellent bar service, outstanding wine list and menu, delicious food, excellent service, and a rarity of live and very enjoyable live music whose sound level is toned down to 'enjoyable',

On a recent Monday night, we joined friends for dinner at Moody's. This was our first experience at the restaurant. The atmosphere was very pleasant and our waitperson was attentive, knowledgable and friendly. My duck sausage Neapolitan Pizza was well-prepared and delicious as was the very fresh and tasty a la carte green salad. Others at the table had pasta... More
