Reasonable restaurant on Fremont Street.
Top-notch, gourmet flavours for a very,very low price.
Trust us! We've been to A LOT of places in Vegas...
this is top-notch food and service for an amazing price!
The server is engaging, The menu is tantalizing. The food that comes to the table is 5 star restaurant value for a reasonable price! Blue Cheese House Salad is crazy-good. They have the best Chicken Satay that we've ever imagined. Pasta was perfectly "el dente" and the steak??? Don't even GO there... perfectly medium rare! The special on the banner was for a Steak&Lobster Special! Don't discount the quality with the price.
Please give it a try! It was our 7th time to Vegas but our 1st time here! We hope to come again soon!

We were visiting the Fremont Experience and there on a Tuesday night and found out that some of the restaurants we wanted to dine at are closed on Tuesdays. There were long waits at some of the more popular casino's restaurants because of that. So we kept looking around and I'm glad we did because we stumbled upon Tinoco's. We were the first dinner customer and there was no line but it before we were finished eating. Great service, great italian food, full bar, nice old style decor that reminded us of the Rat pack Vegas days. Very attentive wait staff. We had a very nice dining experience! Thank you Tinoco's

Heard this family run restaurant had good food. Had we not heard that we probably wouldn't have gone in as we were the only customers to start. Food was good. I wouldn't make a special trip to Fremont to eat here but if you're in the area give it a try

We arrived late and were on a tight timeline for a show. We advised them when we needed to be finished and this was understood and the service was brilliant. We only had time for one course and most of us chose steak which was of good quality and cooked to perfection, it came with mashed potatoes which were very nice, but only 5 slices of veg! Americans don't seem to do fruit or veg!

I am a Las Vegas native, and this is my second visit to Tinoco’s Bistro on Charleston and Main. The first time I went was several years ago. We arrived at 11:30 a.m. and were greeted by staff right away and sat in the main area of the restaurant. Things were a little different from when I first came. The couch like booths and sofa like pillows were replaced with more sturdy and comfortable booths = better. The tables were large artists’ pallets, which were cute.

The restaurant is dimly lit for ambiance. There was a slight stale smell when first walking it but it soon was covered by the smell of wonderful food.

During the entire time, we were waited on by very attentive employees. Upon arrival, you will receive large, very flavorful focaccia type bread (soft, not crusty). The meal choices are Italian with a lot of seafood are part of the menu. Portions are generous and taste wonderful, though my Capellini Checa pasta tasted a little hard the first day (al dente) but was perfect the second day as a leftover. Prices are in line with other sit down restaurants such as Macaroni Grill, Triple George’s Grill (another downtown Las Vegas favorite), etc.

Check out their website at: www.tinocos.net (this website is difficult to find by relying on search engines). Parking is ample and the location is easy to find and close to the freeway. I feel almost anyone would enjoy the restaurant, though it doesn’t stand out as exceptional to me. There are limited sit down restaurant choices for downtown Las Vegas (non-casino) so this is a nice change.
