Or just because you love great food, nice atmosphere, and fantastic service, you need to experience Bistro Napa! Don't let the name fool you as it is not what I would call a Bistro but an elegant place to dine. We have spent many a birthday, anniversaries and brought out of town guests here...just so we can enjoy it again! We love all the staff especially the knowledgeable sommelier Christian and Mark the gracious maitre'd. Each dish is extremely unique and delicious and there is something for everyone which makes it easy when you have different tastes and diets. Napa Bistro is definitely worth the price! Enjoy!

Bistro Napa is an excellent restaurant that would do well in any location, it just happens to be in a hotel casino. We were 3 people for dinner & it was fabulous. They have a nice wine & cocktail program. Not craft cocktails though, I don't know if Reno is on board yet with the whole craft cocktail & beer program, I didn't notice house made bitters or other exotic ingredients like we have in Atlanta, ga.
We had good glasses of wine from their list. It was a bit overpriced, but not horrible. I had a delicious Cabernet for like $15 a glass. I pay about the same in Atlanta. My wife had a Pinot Grigio, good & not overpriced.
For apps we had the Shrimp cocktail, which were 5 big shrimp for $19. Usually you only get 3 shrimp. That was a nice surprise.
Entrees included Steaks( same as on the menu at their sister steakhouse across the hallway). 28 day dry aged beef, my wife loved her steak. I had the special,of the evening, Halibut. It was excellent with delicious sides. All the prices were only about $2 more per dish than we pay in Atlanta. No big deal.
Dessert was very good, Greek donuts(like donut holes) with several dipping sauces, & a huge slice of strawberry shortcake, both delicious.
The service from the wait staff was professional & not intrusive. Excellent service. I saw another reviewer had bad service, but I did not see that at all on my visit.
Also when you sit down, they serve excellent bread & butter. I could've ate the whole thing, luckily I was able to control my impulses.
Overall, Bistro Napa is a great restaurant, a bit expensive, but you get what you pay for.

Lovely dinner experience. With perfect service and excellent food. This is an upscale restaurant with an eclectic menu. Highly recommended. Reservations a must on weekend. Happy hour by the bar has an excellent bar menu for a light meal. Prime rib sliders are exceptional.

This restaurant and bar looks inviting but looks can be deceiving!!!! Upon first look it looks great but the service is horrible and the food is way over priced!! If you must try it only do so at happy hour!!! Know that if you sit at the bar and gamble make sure the drink you want is covered as many at this bar are not!!! Over all it's a pass on it from me to many better restaurants to try than to waist an experience here!!!
