“I have eaten here a couple times and highly recommend it for a sit down meal. The drinks are reasonably priced, and there is a good variety of Italian cocktails/wine.I highly highly highly recommend the burrata and focaccia appetizer.For pizza - The Tony's NYC, cherrypicker, and fig & pig are all great.I'm not a ranch person but I hear the ranch is very good and dill heavy, almost like tzatziki.Service is a little slow but not enough to drop down from 5 stars. It feels like you're in someone's home.“

Beer Flight

“Perhaps the biggest selection of beer on tap in Reno. Look for the exceptional blueberry and vanilla beers! They don’t have food but they make up for it in selection of beer, wine, and cocktails. The atmosphere is bright and open, with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. If you love beer, and you love variety, you’ll love Beer NV.“

Rum Sugar Lime Bar
1039 S Virginia St, Reno

“Kind of weird vibe bar. Tiki drinks, Uber uptown decor, steampunk/brewmaster bartenders. Got there early enough that all the tables were still empty but still had to go to the bar to order. Then once it filled up the bartender came by and checked on our table. But then it took forever back at the bar to close out our tab. My co-worker wanted a different liquor in one of their standard drinks and they refused to make it. Although they were making lots of fancy complex drinks. That seemed odd. I'll go back but doubt my co-workers would. It was mostly filled with dates or groups of women. So they nailed it if they were going for that.“

“So, I've been eating at El Adobe off and on for about 20 years. I recently went back after a long hiatus. One thing you can say about this restaurant is that it is consistent. The food and drink have all the pluses and minuses that I remember.For me, the sine qua non of Mexican food is a chile relleno. What could be more delicious? On this score El Adobe is an honorable contender. A delicious poblano chile stuffed with a copious (not gluttonous) amount of cheese and a nice ranchera sauce. I might have preferred a spicier sauce, but still quite delicious. Nicely battered, but not overly so. The chile is well cooked, so if you like your chile with snap, beware. But again, in my opinion, one of the better chile rellenos in town.Salsas are quite interesting. The red is smooth, not very hot, and contains a cold spice that I can't identify and which I have mixed feelings on. It makes for a very unique tasting red salsa, but do I like it? Well, ok, but I've had more traditional red salsas that I'd like better (how about a smokey fire roasted sauce?). However, any salsa recriminations disappear with the green salsa. I could drink this stuff by the gallon. Just delicious.Guess I have to talk about the chips that come complementary with the salsa (rare these days, thank you, El Adobe!). Pretty sure that they're homemade, but often definitely not right out of the fryer and a bit thick for an old guy with bad teeth. However, that didn't stop me from eating a whole basket. That frigging green salsa would be good on shoe leather.Drinks, you ask. For as long as I've been going to El Adobe, they make the best (and strongest) house Margarita in Reno/Sparks. I definitely suggest a designated driver if you intend to imbibe.The enchiladas and carnitas are good, but unfortunately, the rice and beans are the definition of bland. Filling and inoffensive, but nothing to write home about.The staff and owners are exemplary. They are really glad to see you and they take pride in their jobs. They're never too busy to stop and say hello.Is El Adobe the best Mexican restaurant you'll ever have the chance to go to? No, it's not, but if you want good Mexican food and superior drinks in Northern Nevada, you should have El Adobe on your list“

“We were travelers who wandered in on a warm summer day and were welcomed by a crowd of locals, a friendly staff, and great drinks - what more could we ask for! We are fans of a good local dive bar and this one was a perfect place to grab a cold drink. There were all the typical beverages you would expect beers, wells, and mixers - but this place had a surprising cocktail list too - my favorite was the "Kick Rocks" and raspberry lemonade drink with an explosive candied rim - pop rocks! A trick I will be using at my home bar from now on!“

Chapel Tavern Bar
1099 S Virginia St, Reno

“Chapel is an industry hangout- the far corner of the bar is normally home to other bartenders. It is a wonderful place for people to hang out and grab a great beer or fantastic cocktail. The wine selection is limited, but it is a cocktail bar with unique and special release Scotches. If you go on the right day the owner is working the bar. I highly suggest you go on a quiet day like Tuesday and grab a drink, busy days like Friday and Saturday result in a bit of a wait for a drink. Be kind to your bartender and order a beer or a shot when it is busy. Their cocktail menu is also wonderful!“

Had some great seasonal concoctions, including a lychee one and a spiced apple one. The bartenders were cool, the atmosphere was nice, and the drinks were great (and reasonably priced.)“

Amari Bar •
32 Cheney St, Reno

“This is a cozy little European inspired social spot for amateur mixologists. There's only 4 small tables with bench seating inside, so probably best experienced as aperitif or digestif around your meal. The area gets a little sloppy with college kids later in the evening.The venue is small enough that your server and your bartender are one and the same. The drink menu is eclectic and interesting. Highly recommend giving it a shot one night! The quaint, tucked away location along with the quality drinks offer an experience other local venues can't offer.Only suggestion would be to dial the music down about 25%. The music works with the environment, but the volume overwhelms the conversation that would pair nicely with this intimate setting.“
