    It took a while to get our drinks and food, but overall the service was very good. Unfortunately, there was a crying baby in the restaurant. There’s nothing they could do about it, but it didn’t help with the experience.  The food was excellent. I would recommend the pork rack to anybody.

    First time at Smith and River. We wanted to eat good food outside and we did just that. Service was excellent. I don’t know how we’ve missed this, but we will definitely be back.

    Smith and River never disappoints. The staff is attentive but not smothering. The setting soothing and not distracting. The food is one of the best you’ll experience.

    It was our first experience with Smith and River, and it was excellent! We had cocktails with the bartender Steve, who was just great! good conversationalist . Our server,Jeremiah could not have been more pleasant, even though we were one of the last tables to be seated, he encouraged us to take our time, enjoy our meal and have a great experience! I had the classic rigatoni and it was spicy, delicious and perfectly al dente. My husband and one guest both ordered the salmon and they devoured it saying it was just amazing and our other guest ordered the NY and raved about it! We come to Reno a lot and we usually end up eating at the casino but now that we have discovered Smith and River we will be back!!! Great job!
