Bistro Napa Ratings and Reviews
Bistro Napa was wonderful. The food was awesome and the service was exceptional. We dined for our anniversary and they treated us very well. The wait staff was very attentive but too overpowering. After our dinner they brought a beautiful slice of cake with Happy Anniversary written on the plate.
Appetizers and cocktails are very good as well. Happy hour includes half price appetizers and drinks.
I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.
We went to BN to treat a friend to a birthday celebration. We had excellent fresh oysters on the half shell with condiments, and the celebrant thought his filet mignon was the best he's ever had (and he's had many). The lobster escargot I indulged in were excellent. Our waiter, David, served up just the right amounts of attentivenness, friendliness, and helpfulness. I loved the ipad extensive wine menu, though I chose to eschew the $600 varieties. The atmosphere is ok but a bit on the side of garish casino. Nevertheless, I would return in a heartbeat for another good meal, albeit a bit pricey.
We love Happy hour and try to go at least twice a month. We missed our regular happy hour on Friday so decided to go to the dining room. Everything was great! All the folks are always so courteous and so personable. I very casually mentioned to Mark that since we missed happy hour, we decided to give the dining room a try. To our surprise, when the check came, Mark had discounted our drinks.
Special mention to the three Matthews,( tall Matthew with glasses is our regular server), Stephen,Willy,Eric,Susan,Martin, Christopher and all the other folks that we have come in contact with at the Bistro.
Customer service at it's finest,thanks to the leadership of a manager like Mark.
Thank you all!
The drinks, the wine, the food and the service was exceptional. The menu was extensive with lots of choices. We had a slight wait for the oysters but that was worth it since they were freshly shucked. I actually liked it better than the steak house that was closed that night.
A surprisingly good dinner. The portions are HUGE, so think about sharing and adding sides. I couldn't eat all the food I ordered. The atmosphere is a little dark and shiny for my tastes, and a little noisy, but if you are staying at the casino, I think it is a good option to going out into town.
I took my husband there for his birthday and we once again had a great meal. (I LOVE the cotton candy at the end!) Unfortunately, after having a bottle of wine I made the mistake of not looking over the receipt and we got charged for an extra glass of wine that was brought to us by mistake. Oh well, we still had a wonderful time and a delicious meal. It's been difficult to find great restaurants that match what we had available to us in Las Vegas but this one is becoming one of our favorite Reno finds.
We recieved a gift certificate over the holidays and decided to go in tonight for a nice dinner. I have to say this place far exceeded my expectations. The server was very friendly and helpful. Our food was fresh and delicious, but by far the best thing was the chocolate burger for dessert. Just trust me- best 9 dollars you will spend in a long time! Will be back!
We had a very good dinner at Bistro Napa and enjoyed the food and the attentive service. Excellent fresh baked breads are provided with dinner and the food quality was very high. They always have some fresh fish and seafood on the menu in addition to steaks and chops. We ordered the fresh Alaskan Halibut served with Parmesan risotto and we really enjoyed our meal.
One person took our drink order prior to dinner, in the bar. Another person delivered them, and got the cocktails mixed up with the 4 guests at the table, and forgot a coaster. I would expect our dinner server to remember what each guest ordered, as well, and not to mix the entrée's between guests. Product knowledge should be a 'given' with a top notch restaurant, as well. The foods, with each dish, appetizers included, were superbly prepared, and they looked great. We ordered everything from salmon, short ribs and bone in steaks. The salad, with strawberries was very lacking, both in the lettuces and strawberries. The lettuces had texture of having been prepped earlier in the evening and were limp and sort of soaked feeling. The strawberries were the same; as if prepped too early in the day to be served in the evening. The dressing was an ideal amount, so this was not the salads problem. The wines were wonderful and served properly. I like the I-pad for the wine list, which surely makes changes and inventory more handy. Overall, our experience was very good, not excellent. I would like see some improvements, which should be already refined with the age of the restaurant. I still will recommend for drinks, food, and ambience. Thank you.
Bistro doesn't disappoint. Sherwin was very attentive. He brought my husband a sample of Whiskeys to try. He made sure my mojito was extra citrus, less sweet. Baked Brie and bread baked in the wood fired oven were a pleasant surprise. Tuna tar tar with crispy wafers, yum. Hubby and I split the calamari steaks, with a side of broccoli, carrots, and mashed potatoes. They were brought on 2 separate plates with a beautiful presentation. More than enough for two. Finished with the vanilla bean creme brûlée. And of course the signature cotton candy was brought to end the evening. Just wish I had more room in my belly. All in all a great evening. I even shed some tears missing my father (gone 16 years!) as he would have really enjoyed this evening!!
We were visiting Reno for a short time and wanted a nice place to take our daughter and her friend for dinner. I had not been to Atlantis before and was pleasantly surprised by the hotel, casino and restaurant. Napa Bistro had outstanding service, excellent food, a few lovely complementary food surprises :) and a lovely ambience. It was pricey, but worth the experience. We were there on a Sunday night and everything was very, very good.
We had a wonderful dinner at the Bistro Napa. They have an extensive wine list of quality wines many of which are offered by the glass. I had the short ribs signature dish and my wife had the halibut special. Both were excellent. The wait staff was very attentive and they surprised my wife with birthday strawberry shortcake for dessert. The only minus was they charged $6 for coffee which seems a bit steep.
I live in Reno and the Bistro Napa is my favorite room in this town, maybe anywhere. I have been there many times for romantic dinners, have taken many out of town guests there, all of whom have loved the experience. The food is always great, service, too. And the ambience is lovely. I never miss a chance to go there for a celebration of a special occasion or just because I know the meal will never disappoint. I feel especially lucky if my favorite server, David is available.
We came in with our children and grandchildren after a baseball game. We were treated with great care. The server waited for our two late arrivals and kept the children entertained. They brought extra bread as the boys were very hungry. They made special coattail drinks as well. The prices were very reasonable. I highly recommend this spot as it has something for everyone.
Bistro Napa is a regular favorite of ours. Service is always outstanding - we specify a table with David, although all of the staff there is excellent. The cuisine has something for most anyone, and never had a bad dish there. My wife had the lobster escargot, I had the heirloom tomato salad for appetizers, she the Chilean Sea bass, and I the veal piccata. Both dishes top notch. Best overall regular menu dish for my money is the Cioppino, but no losers on this menu!
