    Our host Angie was attentive and such a pleasure! She hooked up the umbrellas and gave us a list of places to visit during our stay. Food was great and so were the bottomless mimosas.

    We had a wonderful evening! We were there with a group of seven for a friend's birthday. The service was perfect, attentive but unobtrusive. The craft cocktails were delicious. The octopus was one of the best I've had. The cauliflower was layered in wonderful flavors. Salads were great. Several in our group had fish, not huge portions but really nicely done. The osso bucco was on the sweeter side, but still very good. We had one 16 layer chocolate cake and one Galaktoboureko for dessert. To die for! All around, a wonderful experience. Thanks to the staff!

    Went in for lunch to see what it's like, the outside seating is wonderful with the river. I had a glass of the house red and it's not bad at all. I got the chicken with the red sauce and pasta, the chicken had some flavor but the red sauce and pasta were very bland even with extra parmesan cheese. The flatbread and gyro sauce was the best part. Service was a little slow but it was her 4th day on the job. Probably not coming back.

    Great spot! On the river. Very nice view. Shaded outdoor seating. Great food. Wonderful service. Even able to get last minute reservation on Father’s Day. We ran late and they still sat us right before the kitchen closed. So accommodating! Will definitely go again.

    We were able to get a reservation for brunch even though it was close to Father's Day. There were five of us. We were seated outside and I was worried it would be cold but it wasn't. It was pleasant and they lit a heater to help. The food was served in a timely manner. My oatmeal came out before everything else and our waiter made sure the other dishes were quick to follow. He was attentive and fun. The food was in large portions, but it was enjoyed by all. I can't wait to return for dinner.

    The Shore Room has the best food I've eaten in Reno. Hands down. The craft cocktails (they have mocktails too) are fantastic and the wine by the glass was generous. Service (Nia) was outstanding -- professional, and friendly. I just returned from Paris after eating at a Michelin-starred restaurant and this food did not suffer in comparison. The charred octopus appetizer and mushroom salad were exceptional and so was dessert (a Greek concoction that I can't pronounce). It was not inexpensive -- $200 all in for two -- but worth it.

    We had reservations and told that we would not be seated at our time due to weather and having to fill the restaurant with others who had booked outdoors. This is not our problem. However, even though we decided to go after previous disappointments, I wanted to give it a try because of the beautiful view of the Truckee River. We ended up getting seated very quickly and the rest of our experience was excellent...drinks, food, and service. We understand that the pandemic is having an effect. We will go back. We all need to be patient. I want to acknowledge the staff; and I want you all to know that you are appreciated; and thank you for your honest efforts. It really is appreciated.

    I have been coming here for years, since they opened. From day one they have had people in their kitchen who care about what is sent out to their diners. To date I haven't been there for dinner, but breakfast and lunch numerous times. Their food is the draw. Sometimes, depending on your table, it can get clangy-noisey. It's an awesome place for an afternoon cocktail on a sunny day out on the terrace overlooking the Truckee. It's a go-to eating place for me.

    All the entrees and appetizers we had were quiet good. Tough to beat dining on the patio on the river. Even with the windy weather it is sheltered enough to not be an issue. The cocktails were on point as well.

    Nice place for dinner for two. We had a window table which was good and bad. The good was the view of the river. The bad was the windows needed to be washed. Lot’s of bug and spider webs mostly outside but that’s attention to details that should matter to a restaurant owner. I wish I had taken pics of the windows but i did not. The food was well prepared and flavored. The service was above average. However for the price you can get even better food at Land and Ocean. They need a reality check on their prices.

    We have been to the Shore Room several times and the last 2 times were quite disappointing. Last night one person’s “medium rare” beef was purple and practically mooing. We are not very picky about the cook on the meat but this was blatantly RAW. We had to struggle to flag down the waiter. It seemed more important for him to chat with one of the waitresses after the bus boy told him we needed him. We asked for an extra half order of the bread with hummus that was delivered when we were finished eating. We understand that it was a slightly busy night (still had several empty tables) with a play at the theater across the street but this was bread. Really? What chef or cook can’t tell the difference between raw and medium rare. This tells us that there is a lack of attention to detail in the kitchen. The last time we were here we ordered the bread with hummus which was never delivered. This is too bad as we previously had enjoyed frequenting The Shore Room.

    This is the second time I've dined there in a month. The parking is easy, the servers are all pleasant and the food is outstanding. I like it when the servers work together to make sure your food is brought out the moment it is ready so it is hot and fresh. The suggestions that were given on the wine and dessert were fantastic! We'll be back again soon!

    Die Auswahl war nicht besonders groß, doch wenn man es allerdings mit den sonst üblichen Burger und Sandwichs vergleicht, so gab es doch auch mal etwas Abwechslung auf dem Teller. Wir hatten einen Cäsar Salat mit Hähnchen Schenkel und gebackene Polenta mit Parmesan, dazu zwei Gläser einfachen Wein und einen alkoholfreien kleinen Cocktail und waren 100 € los!

    My friend and I had a lovely lunch on the patio overlooking the river. Our server was outstanding - attentive but not hovering. My friend had the Mediterranean salad with chicken and was really pleased with it. I had the Caesar with grilled shrimp. The shrimp were excellent and numerous! The salad itself was a little small for an entree, but the cheese was the right amount and the croutons were nice. However.....grapes have no place in a Caesar, roasted or otherwise. I had this salad the very first night the restaurant opened several years ago, and I haven't changed my mind. Otherwise, everything was great!

    My husband and I had a date night out and away from the kids for the first time in over 3 years. We had a concert and chose to stay the night at Renaissance. We chose The Shore simply for convenience but I’m so glad we decided to eat here. We had one of the best meal experiences we have EVER had. First off, our server Nia was AMAZING. She was kind, GENUINE, and attentive without being invasive. Thank goodness we are locals because I will gladly go back just to have her service. On top of that the food was to die for. I have some current dietary restrictions and Nia helped us pick out the Gluten Free Laffa with Melitzano. Do not pass up the chance to try this!!!!! I had the Pan-Roasted Verlasso Salmon and was not disappointed. Every single bite was perfectly cooked and made me melt. I had the Verdi Venture cocktail with it. As someone who enjoys gin drinks fairly regularly, the flavors were perfect and not sweet (in a good way!). My husband had the T.S.R. Burger and while he expected a run of the mill burger, he was extremely impressed with everything from how perfectly the burger was cooked, to the flavors baked into the potato bun and the aioli as well. We will be going back to have this meal again.

    We ordered the bottomless mimosas which did not disappoint. Our server even brought us our own carafe and several options of juices for our mimosas. My friends and I ordered the salmon Benedict, the biscuits and gravy and the chilaquiles. The Benedict was the favorite of the group. The biscuits and gravy had too much biscuits and not enough gravy while the chilaquiles were too dry maybe had a little too much chipotle in the sauce. The decor of the restaurant is very cool and it has a lot of patio seating overlooking the River. I’d definitely visit again for brunch but would like try the Benedict this time.

    I've been to the Shore Room many times and overall have had good experiences....except past Sunday. We had an 11:45 am reservation and were sat at 11:45. We ordered promptly because we had somewhere to be at 1:00. Our food took 45 minutes to arrive (how long does it take to make avocado toast?) and both breakfast entrees were COLD. Not going back.

    We had reservations for 3 of us. We had asked to be seated outside - she said we'd have to wait 45 minutes so we chose to eat inside as we were going to a play. I noticed though, when we were seated inside- they began seating people outside right away. Anyhow, once seated had to wait approx 20 minutes before greeted by the waitress for something to drink. Took another 20 minutes for her to bring everyone's complete drink order. People came in after us and were served their drinks and food before us. I found the service to be very poor. The food was good. Not sure I'd go back. Honestly, I find along with the food, that service should be top notch - that's what you remember - how people treated you.

    Not sure what was going on, restaurant didn’t appear busy, we had a reservation for 4 at 6:15. We ordered and by 7pm our food still hadn’t arrived. We had show tickets, told our waiter when we sat down so was hoping to get in time to enjoy. When I told him we had to leave at 7:15 to walk to the show whether food had arrived or not. Food arrived right after that conversation and we consumed our food, didn’t finish and had to leave. Not the nice evening I was hoping for since in the past we have had a delightful time.

    Although we advised our server we had a time certain to leave for a show at the Pioneer, she did not check back--we had to track her down. When the food arrived, it did not include one of our dishes. Once again, we had to track down the server. This last dish--a burger--was inedible, as it was completely raw in the middle. I have dined here before, and although there have been minor glitches, this was very frustrating.

    This is a lovely spot on the Truckee River with outdoor and indoor seating. Delicious food made for a perfect lunch for friends who hadn't seen each other in a year. Very reasonable - we each had a mimosa, and shared the blackened salmon tacos and laffa and split a Savini salad. More than enough food (we had to take almost half home) generous drinks and a bill under $60. I highly recommend The Shore room.
