We made reservations for Thanksgiving relying on our trusted Trip Advisor patron reviews. We may have visited on a wrong, busy day and agree that service and wait staff are excellent; however quality of food did not meet our expectations for a restaurant of this caliber and price. A $48 filet should wow the diner and be of such tenderness... More

I've eaten in Sterling's 3 times when visiting my son in Reno. The quality of food, wine and wait staff are exceptional. It's a little pricey but totally worth it; a very nice special-occasion place to go. Tonight we were lucky to get a reservation for Thanksgiving dinner. The special menu they put together was fantastic. I highly recommend this... More

Sterling's is clearly the best downtown " fine dining" in Reno. Largely because if it's attentive and professional staff. However like most restaurants today, they have no dress code and will seemly seat anyone. I have see dirty shorts and flip- flops. However in fairness I did observe the hostess turn away an intoxicated couple in t- shirts and shorts... More

We enjoyed a fabulous brunch: lamb chops, filet tips, cod, trout, oysters Rockefeller, not to mention the "regulars" crab legs, shrimp, salmon, roast beef etc. The sparkling brut was spot on and the service was attentive exactly when needed. They had a roving musician whom started with a flute and switched to the sax. This was worth every penny. Thanks... More

High-end dining experience in the Circus Circus, El Dorado, Silver Legacy Resort complex. The service was 5 star all the way with attentive waitstaff and impeccable service. Dinner was flawless and prepared as only the top restaurants can - innovative, generous with a unique flair!

This place is very nice. Excellent wait staff, quiet and intimate atmosphere, and outstanding menu. The popovers are out of this world. Huge wine selection and wonderful cocktails. If you have a special occasion, you won't be disappointed with Sterling's. a little pricey for regular visits.

The Silver Legacy had a special going on where if you bought tickets to the Laugh Factory, which is in the hotel, you received a voucher good for a portion of your dinner at Sterling's. The restaurant has a nice clean décor and the kitchen is visible which is a nice touch. I was greeted with bread and butter and... More

The food was average, above price and the service was lousy. some people left rather than wait for a server to take their order.

The service is beyond good other than they were always pushing their drinks. The food is great but a little pricey and you had to pay for all of the sides.
