My Wife and I have had some really great meals at Basque restaurants in California and Nevada. Unfortunately we don’t love near any of them. The nearest is in Gardnerville, a two-hour drive, so we drove up there to give the Overland Hotel a try. Maybe we’d built our hopes up too much.
We had a seem-traditional Basque meal. Since the stew had garbanzo beans in it, that was probably also the bean course. The entrée was served with a few potatoes on the plate, which would have accounted for the potato course. Portion sizes were adequate; typical of a regular restaurant. The salad was excellent and everything else was fine except for my Wife’s halibut, which had been cooked to death. It had been turned into a hard, dry chunk of something tasting vaguely fishy.
Service was excellent and everything except the fish was at least ok, but based on the less-than-abundant portion sizes and the terrible fish, I can’t rate the restaurant higher than a three and don’t plan to return.
