As usual our dinner was excellent and our server was outstanding!
The food was horrible and the service was the same.
Really? They didn't have our reservation. 30 minutes after you sent me a reminder. Sooo bad for Open Table. Not blaming Oyster Bar.
Great place to spend with your family
The combination pan roast is the best available in Reno.
Went to dinner with family (party of 5) prior to attending comedy show at a different casino. We purposely chose oyster bar as prior experience has been great and close proximity to our final destination was convenient. The show started at 8 and thought that a 6:15 dinner reservation would be more than sufficient. Once we placed our order, we waited a half hour for 2 salads that were ordered. By the time 7:30 rolled around we still didn’t have our dinner and had to ask manager about our order and explain we had to leave. We didn’t get to eat and had to take our food to go. The manager was very nice and apologetic and comped our bottle of wine. It was pretty apparent the restaurant was short on wait staff as well as cook staff, but we watched several tables seated after us get their meals. Very disappointing experience.
My wife's meal (Pan Roast) was what she has always remembered, I had the stuffed ravioli and it was not cooked throughout with the mushrooms in the sauce very tough. The food server was very pleasant. It was her birthday and since she enjoyed her meal I was satisfied.
Much better experience than last week. Elsa, our server, knows us and what we like, appearing at the table with water and lemons (we both like to put lemon in our water). We ordered the delicious Seafood Extravaganza, which we totally enjoyed. It arrived in a reasonable amount of time. This is a great place.
We had a reservation, but were shown to a booth in the bar area. Took awhile for the server to come to us, but eventually we were served. We really like the food there, and prices are reasonable.
Hokey setting, terrible bread, decent enough oysters and mussels, good wedge salad, little seafood apart from shellfish. Won’t go again (hopefully something else at The Nugget is better?)
New Year's Day with family
The food is always good. The cooks were a little slower than usual. But well worth the wait.
We we very disappointed. This was our anniversary dinner and we had high hopes. Will not return to or recommend this restaurant.
Food was great. Service was horrible. Understaffed
Server was horrible. We had to continue to ask for this or that and bill. Never checked on us
The food was good tasting but would have liked bigger pieces of seafood in the cioppino.
Fantastic dining as always. The pan roast was fabulous and there was something for everyone, even our picky grandson.
Had the Combination Pan Roast—was very good. Slightly smaller than I remember and the scallops and fish have been removed. Dessert was nothing to write home about... The decor hasn’t been touched since John Ascuaga put it in years ago... kinda kitschy but brings back memories. Noise was fine for not being in a casino. Otherwise a good night out.
It was exceptionally easy to set a reservation, even day of, for the Oyster Bar. When we arrived we were greeted by a very friendly, helpful hostess who seated us immediately. Our waitress was fantastic and offered us an option of food that fit exactly what we wanted. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was great and timely even for every table being full on a Saturday night. My husband and I will both continue to return to this gem of a restaurant on a frequent basis. Highly recommended!
We were a bit disappointed with our meal at the Oyster Bar. We have eaten there many times and this evening dining was not the greatest.
I had the seafood Louie salad, and half the ingredients on the top, like egg, olives and asparagus were all missing. And they throw and old canned green bean on top. The shrimp and crab meat was all shredded, not good!
Service very poor that evening.
My husband had the shrimp pan roast and he enjoyed it.
It will be awhile before we return to the Oyster Bar.
