Bistro Napa Ratings and Reviews

We have been here a couple of times and enjoyed ourselves. So we looked forward to going back...the Napa Bistro did not let us down. All around great!!
Reliably wonderful. Happy hour is superior and desserts are decadent.
Cioppino to die for!
We live north of San Francisco where Cioppino originated from, have tried Ciopinno from San Clemente North to Crescent City and the Ciopinno here at the Bistro rates one of the top 2 if not number one! Ample Crab meat and prepared perfectly, a Delicous Sea Food treat! Don't miss the Panko breaded King Crab cakes would return just for those alone! We had two children in a party of 6, the staff treated them with the upmost respect and engaged with them in a cute way especially when they were brought freshly spun cotton candy for a special treat! This will be a must do every time we visit Reno!!!
Great Find in Reno
We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Napa Bistro. The staff was delightful and made us feel very welcome! The menu selections were wonderful and the food delicious. It was my husband's birthday, and the staff celebrated it with style! We found the prices to be very reasonable and the atmosphere lovely. We will definitely return!

As always, really great food and good service. The ribeye steak was excellent...love that wood fired flavor. Cesar salad was wonderful.
Our experience did not live up to the hype
Read several reviews and was really looking forward to a great meal. What we got was so so food and a hefty bill for even worse service. Beverage top offs were non existent. Had to catch servers going by to request beverages. There was 5 of us, we all travel frequently on business and are very well accustomed to nice restaurants in many large cities. We had a wide range of menu items. The veal was not very good when compared to the la strada in the eldorado. The prime rib was probably the best thing on the menu and the steamed clams were good. The rest was not fitting for what we paid and the quality.
We came for the oysters on the half shell and were not disappointed. Great selection and super-fresh. Add in a salad and a little Champagne and you have a dinner to be remembered.
Ohhhhh. The short ribs!!!
What a lovely experience and our first time dining with Bistro Napa. We had wonderful service, a great sommelier, and front row seats to enjoy watching and listening to 9 chefs prepare amazing dishes. You can't go wrong with their signature dishes. We had the lobster Mac and it was perfect with just the right cheeses and a velvety finish. The Chef de Cuisine was a mistro conducting a symphony of perfect plates. Some reasonably priced bottles of good wine as well. The cotton candy finish was a nice touch. ❤️
Wonderful service and great food
Loved everything about our meal. Arrive early and enjoy happy hour at the bar before you sit down at your table. This was one of the nicest dining experiences we have had in Reno.

The restaurant was very nice and we were greeted and seated right away. The service was very good and our meals were excellent. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and would come back any time. Perhaps next time I will try the small plates. Overall rating 👍
Great evening for a Birthday Celebration ...
Great evening for a Birthday Celebration with an over the top wines selection by the Sommelier Christian. Sherwin provided suburb service and the Chefs special was excellent. Napa Bistro is a must fine experience in Reno.
Amazing cuisine , excellent service, very good wine ! A hidden gem In Reno.
We sat by the kitchen for wine and oysters with Cook Jorge, who was fun and friendly. Moved to table for dinner; don't miss the artichokes and escargot. Chef was kind enough to come out to share about his dishes. What a great guy and talented chef. This has become an annual visit for us because of the service and food (did I mention David our server? Great!) Do not miss dinner here. You will surely love it!

We had dinner here before the concert. It was our first time dining here. The waiter seemed a little bit taken back when we told him we needed to be finished by a certain time. I very gently told him that I know he's busy but he needs to not be short with us. After that, he was very gracious. My husbands fillet and lobster tails were excellent. My web salad was fabulous. The Chilean Seabass was good.
Overall, we were very satisfied with our dinner at Bistro Napa but were disappointed to find that it was located inside the Atlantis Casino as we were looking for an "out of casino" dining experience in Reno. Additionally, the restaurant is a bit difficult to locate in the building due to poor signage on the gaming floor. The food and service are outstanding.
First time to try this restaurant and I will definately be back. The service, food and wine list made it an exceptional experience.
Excellent choice for dinner
Originally selected based on menu and location where we were staying. Service was excellent as was the food. Wines by the glass were very good but a bit pricey. Overall, an excellent selection for dinner.
It was my boyfriend 30th Birthday so I surprised him with the restaurant. And From the greeting to the exit the service was amazing. I watched cotton candy desserts go through the restaurant... I had brought cake from an outside bakery they asked to plate the cake they went above and beyond and wrote "Happy Birthday" in chocolate sauce on the plate. Absolutely exceptional, Mark was the matron'd, he is amazing at his job even took a picture of us an sent us home with a print as a souvenir! By far the best dinning experience ever!!!
One of the best in Reno for food, wine and service.
Great food and atmosphere
Wonderful place for special occasions, romantic, great food, wine list wonderful and atmosphere is great.
The Bistro Napa serves quality food and the service is excellent. The menu is varied enough for anyone's taste. I have dined there at least two dozen times with as many as 20 people and everyone has always enjoyed the experience.
Best Happy Hour in Reno
Absolutely fabulous food not to be missed if you are in Reno. The restaurant is in the Atlantis Hotel, which is one of the best in the city. The appetizers were creative and expertly prepared. The Butternut squash and pumpkin ravioli with pomegranate seeds were scrumptious and the grilled vegetables with wood fire artichokes w/ lemon aioli were outstanding. If you are adventurous, try the wild boar spring rolls. Your palate will be very happy.
all four of my guests were blown away by their dinners. I had sea bass. Was so gooood!!!! And we started out by having some squash sage ravioli. So basic, right? No, was literally the best ravioli I have had in a long time. Great wine selection.

Great fine dining restaurant in Atlantis Casino, upscale, comfortable decor and seating. Nice menu selections. Food well prepared, very tasty, and nice portion sizes. Service was very good, server knew menu well, helped with dinner choices and with wine selection. Restaurant was quite busy, yet server kept up well with our table. Definitely would dine at Bistro Napa again next time in the area.

Outstanding service with Matt, great food, elegant atmosphere without being pretentious. Treated our 5 yr old so nicely. Would highly recommend!
Enjoyed our family dinner. Away from the chaos of the casino. Great wine list, attentive service and food was good!
Great food at Bristro Napa. We started with the perfectly portioned Baby Iceberg Wedge which was excellent. The Oysters Rockefeller were fresh but the recipe was too deconstructed for our tastes. We enjoyed the Potato Encrusted Salmon but really loved the flavors in the Pan Roasted Chilean Sea Bass.

The food was delicious, however, the service was seriously lacking. Our server, quite simply, was never around. I had to track him down every time we wanted something. He couldn't be bothered with our table, and unfortunately, that ruined the dining experience.
Nice restaurant in Reno
The Bistro Napa has the appearance of a big hotel restaurant, especially, after you go to the website and there is no indication that it is inside a hotel in Reno. However, once there, the restaurant is clean, pleasant, with an attentive wait staff. The food is well done with the oysters being fresh and OK. The Cioppino was well made, but without much heat. The wine list was adequate, and somewhat overpriced for the items present, but the Black-Kite Pinot was good and reasonably priced.
Night out for good food and great conversation
Great upbeat restaurant. Excellent offering of steaks and other entries. Extensive wine list. The staff are attentive and friendly.
Business Dinner Approved
We took some customers here for a business dinner. The sound level allowed us to visit easily and the food was very good. Our group had steak, lamb and seafood and everyone was pleased. The cotton candy at the end of dinner was an interesting twist!

Very enjoyable atmosphere and excellent food. Had dinner with a prospective client and the service, food and noise level was very suitable for the meeting.
30th Anniversary Dinner
Prime rib was cooked as requested, but a bit salty. Caprese and Cesar salads salads were fresh and delicious. Lots of choices for wine by the glass on the menu. We were eating during the national championship college football game and when the waiter found out we were interested in what was happening, he gave us discreet updates in the score. Unfortunately, even though I specifically requested a quiet table, we were seated next to a loud group of 6 business people discussing customer service and making plans to gamble and drink. They seemed oblivious to the distruption they caused in an otherwise quiet space. It would have been nice for the restaurant to have honored our request and seated us away from that table.
The food, service, and ambience was fabulous. We are already making plans to return. Both our dinners were cooked to perfection.
We were in Reno for one night, just passing through. Bistro Napa had great reviews so we tried it. Excellent food and excellent service. Next time we're driving through we'll make a point to stop so that we can enjoy dinner there again.
A good place for a very good dinner
The title says it all. A wonderful dining experience punctuated with excellently prepared food, top notch service and a quiet, dimly-lit atmosphere.
Why anyone thinks this place is great is ...
Why anyone thinks this place is great is beyond us. Snooty waiter. Even servers in New York City are not snooty any longer. Get over yourselves. Food overcooked. And you have to walk through a smoke-filled casino. There is another entrance but they keep it quiet and walking down even that hall, it stinks of smoke. Awful.
What a special dinner should be!
My husband and I booked a reservation at Bistro Napa for my 65th birthday and it was just what we wanted. Comfy booth, friendly and attentive staff (but not hovering). Our waiter was well informed and helpful with a wine list suggestion. Food was terrific- visually attractive and superbly tasty. Portion size generous but not overdone. I was presented with a birthday cake with candle, and a special friend even called the restaurant from Hawaii and ordered me a special glass of Port! It was brought promptly to me with her best wishes. Lovely!
Took mom here while in town
We both had a wonderful experience. Food was excellent! Service was great. Will definitely go there again !
