Awesome ! El Rio Salvaje margarita was perfectly made, dinner was delicious. I had the coconut mahi mahi, wife had the short ribs. Service was excellent. Perfect night on the patio. 0800-830 reservation made it very pleasant on the Patio. Nice live music. If you want to make those brownie points with the lady, take her here. Thank you again.

I attended a group diner for 50 people. The service and my entree was great. The ladies behind the bar kept us laughing.

Although I live in Reno I haven't been here before. Everything was very good from the appetizers to drinks and the dessert. Did not have the meatloaf but each time some came by I thought to have it the next time!
Dinner by the river, good food and service on a warm evening, what's not to like!

I have been coming to Reno for many years and I happened to stumble across this restaurant on TripAdvisor so we thought we would give it a try. I wish I hadn't had a late lunch but my friend was hungry so my meal was only soup which was French Onion and it was very good. My friend order the Meatloaf and that was very good also but could of had a little more spices added to it. I will definitely give it a try again when I have a better appetite and try a few other dishes that were on the menu. The atmosphere was very upbeat and quite busy for a Wednesday evening.
