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

We had a Tuesday night reservation but got there early and opted to eat at the bar. The place was hopping! Bartenders very friendly and knowledgeable. My husband and I split the soup of the day (carrot purée- delicious) a salad (frisée lettuce and a few other touches, also way yummy) and went out on a ledge and got the... More

My Wife and I had a fine dinner a few days ago. The food was very good and the staff was friendly, prompt and pleasantly attentive. They accommodated a special request for a special occasion. We have had many good experiences at Moody's and recommend it.

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!
