Dinner for two at $120 with two glasses of wine and desert. Food resembled that from a warming table, with stale profiteroles for desert. Service pleasant but erratic, with wine served after the meal was well underway. New York prices with casino diner quality.

We visited this charming restaurant on Saturday night with a reservation and sat in the upstairs dining room after being offered a table in the "wine cellar". Our server, Leann, was very gracious and helpful as well as knowledgable about the menu. We had decided to have the Rabbit if it was available since that is not something that is... More

The insiders pick for fine dining in Reno, Beaujolais Bistro, has moved and become Beaujolais. Situated on the Truckee River, with a new full bar service and a lower special events room with wine cellar, it is even better than before. And with plenty of parking. Bill, the Chef/owner has brought the best of French cooking and married it with... More

This restaurant moved from a smaller place downtown to a larger place on the edge of downtown some time back. This is the first time I've been to the new location and I love it. They're in an older house located across from the river and the setting is very nice. Parking is easy and the area is very safe... More

I was walking my dog afterwork and wondered if Gilbert would let me sit outside and have a cocktail with my dog. The answer was yes and I had a lovely time with my dog drinking a 75 and eating oysters. The restaurant has moved to a lovely location on the river and sitting outside was the best. I had... More

Four of us went to Beaujolais last night at their new location and we were so surpassed with the stunning location right across from Truckee River. You better get a reservation because since they moved everyone who loves quality dinning has flocked to this restaurant. The service was superb and the dishes from appetizers to entrees to desert and spectacular... More

Love the new location so close to the Truckee river. Nice atmosphere, fit for couples or business dinners. Love the cocktails. We tried the fish and the steak and were all very good.

My first visit to this restaurant was impressive. It has been in its current location for a little over a month. The setting is wonderful: a converted older home across the street from the Truckee River. The service from start to finish was great, and it was a very busy evening. To start, the cocktail list is impressive. Not wanting... More
