*****  I had the pleasure of being invited out for a few hours with a group on Monday evening filled with food and music. I have never been to this restaurant and I don't get out much generally but was happy with this quaint and modernly classy place. The tables and seating are great and nicely decorated. We were greeted kindly and immediately taken care of. The menu is clear and descriptive and the prices are considerably fair. I'm mostly a Vegetarian so my first instinct was to look for something I would like. They offered dishes thankfully that tended to this need.  So my first dish was The Caprese which was a wonderful because it had Tomatoes & Mozzarella my faves. The sauce was minty and played with my taste buds. The second dish was The Asparagus. This was an interesting concoction because of the poached egg and mix of flavors. I loved trying something different. Ahhhhh... Isn't that the joys of food?! Last dish was Hummus. I am a big Hummus fan and this was delish. The presentation was excellent. This seemed like what fine dining would be close to which is a truly new experience to me. Throughout my visit I was checked on often and it was lovely to be able to try something new while listening to a great artist. I highly recommend to anyone looking for some tasty food and a inviting intimate atmosphere. Many thanks to everyone for a wonderful time. -Troby F. Fernly, NV  7/13/16


*****  Great cozy place with a great atmosphere. Perfect for a bite to eat in midtown or a nice sit-down dinner. They have fantastic food and the owners are just really nice genuine people who love what they do and love their food.

They have fantastic cocktails, and for being super fresh and hand made cuisine they have a really reasonably priced menu too. Just all around great experience. It's seriously like someone thought of the perfect place to put right there on Sierra street. 

Every bit of food is exceptional quality and they really balance every flavor in every bite. They also offer more of the rarity items on their menu that you don't see in Reno, making it the perfect date place for the adventurous duo with an appetite. 

For the more posh they also have very nice events they put on including wine pairings with a 5 course meal so your other half can't say you don't treat them well ;). Drop the clichéd, overpriced and overcrowded spots you were thinking of for dinner or lunch, give this place a thought. They're located right across from Riverside theater (hint hint another date night) and THEY VALIDATE!!!

There you go... No more excuses. Try it.  - Mason F.  Reno, NV  7/12/16


*****  I love that Reno has changed so much and we have places like Sierra St Kitchen! This little space is fantastic. The owners, Brett and Nicole, are so nice and so knowledgeable. This is a fancy place but they keep it real and are very personable. We had the Dumol chardonnay on the recommendation of Brett who is a sommelier because they were out of Rombauer. The Dumol is way better. The menu is small plates, which is my favorite. We just stopped in for a drink and an appetizer and had the ahi tartar. They top it with a mango pineapple salsa which was amazing. The ingredients were clearly high quality and very fresh. The avocado on this was incredible. The menu is fantastic. Check this place out, you will not be sorry.  - Kara S. Reno, NV  6/26/16


*****  Great location and loved the ambiance. Ebony was our Server and she was wonderful! I had the Sierra Mule- it was so delicious! My husband and I shared the Beet Salad, bacon wrapped dates and the Brussels sprouts. Everything was perfect. The beets were huge and the goat cheese was the best I have ever had. We will definitely be coming back! The chef came out and asked how everything was and I really appreciate that, it shows they really truly care about your experience. Go support this great new addition to Downtown Reno :) you will not be disappointed! - Jackie O.  Auburn, CA  6/17/16


*****  Finally! The new spot downtown has opened.

And what a great experience it was! The food, the service, the location, all were just what we had been hoping for.

They are still in their soft opening so there are a few kinks to get worked out, but it was pretty seamless for having been opened only three days. 

We decided to go with the small plates and were able to sample a variety of what they had to offer. We started off with the Charcuterie & Cheese Combo. A very nice sampling of cured meats and cheese, fruit compote and crostini. A nice paring with our drinks. I had the Sierra Mule. A cinnamon flavored twist on the classic Mule served appropriately in a large copper mug. 

We then each chose two items off the small plates menu. First came the stuffed dates wrapped in bacon and crab cakes. The dates were amazing. The tender candy sweetness of the dates were offset by the creamy goat cheese and crisp, smoky bacon. The crab cakes were a little bit of a miss for me, but my dinning partners really enjoyed them. The crust was not quite as crunchy as I like it. 

Next were the Meatballs in sweet chili sauce and the Fillet Medallions with spinach and potatoes. The Fillet Medallions were hands down the all out headliner for me. They were tender, flavorful and juicy with a light reduction sauce. 

Our last pairing were Scallops on a bed of Parmesan Risotto and Steak Tartar. The Steak Tartar was fresh and tasty. High quality prime fillet was used and it was amazing. My son dubbed it "Steak Sushi". With the fresh raw egg yoke, capers, mustard and cooked egg all stirred in, it made for an impeccable treat. I cannot eat scallops (sigh) but the others said they were fantastic. Our server kindly brought me a bowl of just the risotto. Oh my! Creamy and rich and piping hot. 

And it that wasn't enough, we decided to sample dessert. We had Chocolate Gelato (from The Eldorado), bananas Foster, and Profiteroles with a dark chocolate sauce made with Dorinda's chocolate. 

Servings were very generous and we walked away completely stuffed. Prices were reasonable for the quality of food that was provided. Items ran from $6-15. 

The only minor complaint was that the service felt just a little rushed at first. The dates and crab cakes came when we were still eating the Charcuterie. I think a little pause between servings would have made it perfect - time to sample and enjoy and digest a bit before the next round of deliciousness was brought. 

I am very much looking forward to coming back again. I think this will be one of our regular dining spots.  - Nancy V.  Reno, NV  5/29/16


*****  Every dish I've tried has been great. Layers of flavor. Their tag line of "Small plates, big flavor" is on the money. When's the last time Brussels sprouts tasted so good? Or being able to order a beet martini? The wine list and liquors won't be found elsewhere - and that's a good thing once you try their cocktails. The staff has personality that along with the food will make this a favorite.  - Tom T  Reno, NV  6/17/16


*****  Great food, great wine, great service & great ambiance.  Can't ask for much more.  We went to Sierra St. Kitchen last night to celebrate our anniversary and it was a spectacular time.  We really like small plate/tapas style food and this hit the spot.  The menu has a great selection and good portion sizes.  The service was wonderful.  So happy to have this new restaurant in Reno.  I know we'll be back soon.  - Jessica T.  Reno, NV  7/7/16


*****  We have dined here twice since they opened. Great menu at reasonable prices. Everything was prepared well with nice sized portions that allow sampling several plates. Good wine list with full bar. Great place for dining before baseball, movie, or event at Pioneer Center.  - Gary F  Reno, NV  6/7/16


*****  Really awesome menu with a ton of variety. The service was warm and knowledgeable. Location was so perfect. They validate parking, family owned and fantastic food. Loved the small plates, open to making the small plate an entree if desired. Really very very impressed. Ambiance is beautiful as well. Will go back often.  - C P.  Sparks, NV  6/12/16
