Steakhouse
Progressive American cuisine pioneer, Charlie Palmer, continues his West Coast trail with Charlie Palmer Steak, Reno: a contemporary steakhouse that feels more like a clubhouse wrapped with blonde wooden walls and textured fabrics in midnight blue, deep terracotta and espresso.

In the kitchen, we continue the clubhouse feel with neo-traditional steakhouse fare such as Oregon Wagyu Beef Short Ribs with Garlicky Gremolata and classic tableside service of Steak Diane. The trademark eclectic wine list is strong in America bottlings focused on the Northwest and including rare single-vineyard bottles.

    It is hard to reconcile the food quality and price with the setting of this restaurant. The tables and seating are reminiscent of a mid-tier vegas buffet. It appears there's only one main thoroughfare for the majority of the restaurant, which means there is a constant flow of servers and bussers rushing past tables, often narrowly avoiding each other while carrying stacks of dirty plates. Add in the fact that there were multiple patrons in tanktops and sandals- it results in a serious disconnect in what Charlie Palmer Steak is trying to be vs what it actually is. The food was very good but not outstanding as the price point would indicate. Service was also great but the lack of a real wine list in a steakhouse such as this was disappointing. All in all, the only situation in which I can see myself returning is if I'm starting at GSR and really don't want to leave the property for a good meal. Otherwise, there are much better options for a nice/$$ meal.

    Unfortunately with this economy, prices are double! Been going to CP for 15 years and only had one questionable service but ALL other times it's been fantastic. Probably won't be back until prices drop though.

    While the steaks were good the temperatures were not what we wanted. We asked for medium rare and got 1 very rare and one medium well. Disappointed considering the cost. Inconsistency with service and have overall been to better steakhouses. Booked using opentable for a birthday and there was no mention of the birthday dinner.

    Shrimp scampi was SOUR and our food took 1 hour to come out. We reserved at 515pm so it wasn't that busy. It was not busy but was told by our waiter that it was because of happy hour. We weren't that happy.

    I had heard a lot about how good it was so I was excited to try it for the half price happy hour. But it really wasn’t. The croquets were completely dry and had not even a niblet size of pineapple, the steak skewers had so much pepper I couldn’t even eat them, they didn’t provide enough condiments for the baked potatoes size, the beet salad had maybe two beet pieces and was all lettuce, the mushrooms were severely undercooked and flavorless. Plus they stuck me on a table in a corner with some conventioneers at the bar so the waitress couldn’t even get to my table so service was severely inadequate. The one good thing I will say was the lobster bisque soup was fantastic. But I certainly won’t be wasting my money here again.

    50th wedding anniversary. No one even noted it. Even had cards on the table. Just seemed strange for such a restaurant with great reviews and so many in so many different cities. I was so disappointed with the fast food table tops and noisy atmosphere. I would think such a restaurant would have a tablecloth to go with the linen napkins. Such a shame. Set a mood that I don’t think Charlie would like. Just wasn’t laid out like a beautiful restaurant I had expected Irwin was wonderful, the meal ultimately was also wonderful. Sent back 2 well done steaks that were supposed to be medium. Irwin, such a gentleman took care of it and apologized as this was a rarity. The gratin potatoes and mushrooms were delicious along with the lemon cheesecake and butter cake with the strawberry topping/ice cream,

    Everything was fine except how long it took for dinner. We didn’t get our meal until nearly an hour and a half after ordering. The server was constantly apologizing to patrons regarding the wait. Even warning patrons when they arrived at their table the kitchen was slow and the dinner served was 60 minutes or more. No manager was in sight explaining the delay and apologizing to patrons. Only the server was doing PR. When the kitchen is so slow, minimally a free drink should be offered by management with an apology. The server was excellent. The appetizer was excellent. I felt really bad for the staff. Management needed to step up.

    Our reservation were for 7:30 got there at 7:20. They would not seat us until 7:30, there was nobody waiting for a table. You could see empty tables all over. We waited over an hour for our food, all while the restaurant still had open tables. It was not worth the wait.

    We had reservations at 6:45. We were seated immediately. We were there 15 or so minutes and not greeted by anyone… not even for water. After waiting I decided to go to the bar to order my husband and son drinks. Finally our waiter came over to bring our drinks. We ordered our meal and an hour later our salads showed up. After waiting a while after the salad came we spoke with the manager about the lack of service, the time it took to bring anything and in return he offered to pay for our drinks. We weren’t looking for anything free but the offer was nice. Thinking that maybe waiting for an hour for our salads surely our dinner would be out soon. Wrong. That took another hour. We ate our meal and were looking forward to dessert but we were thinking that may take another hour so we asked for our check. My husband asked to speak with the manager again and his way of making it up to us was him saying he gave me an extra 1/2 lb of crab. I didn’t know he gave me extra and never mentioned it in the prior conversation. I was really bummed as we had a great week celebrating a huge accomplishment for my son and we love CP’s but the service has gone way downhill. The food will always be top notch but not at a two hour rate to get your meal. The manager never apologized and while the extra crab legs were great (I ended up giving half of it to my husband) maybe a Im sorry we are short staffed, the kitchen is backed up.. anything would have been appreciated because we could be very understanding to that. I would totally not be writing this review that pains me to write had they said something… anything.

    We're dedicated fans of other steak houses but we gave Charlie a try yesterday and was pleasantly impressed. Great everything - we will go back! The only thing is we used the weekday 3-course special with bottomless wine paring - this made it a muh better value because the menu pricing is "Vegas" level expensive. The local deals are not on the menu, you need to ask (Sunday thru Thursday only). Enjoy!

    This place is very nice. They have a good wine list. In general the prices are absurdly high. An app of shishito peppers was $19. That's ridiculous. My dry-aged ribeye was $89 and it was unimpressive. For a $90 steak I expect my jaw to drop open when it gets to the table. It was fairly thin and grey with no char. It was tasty enough and cooked mostly correctly but overall it wasn't what I expect from a steak at that price. But overall, the ridiculous prices are reason enough to go to one of the other exceptional Steakhouses in town.

    We were sat near the bar which was pretty loud. Waited about an hour for our food while everyone else around us received their food even though they had been sat long after us. Service was not very good, waiter only came by once to check up on us. At the end of our meal I asked for a to go box. My food was packaged for me which I thought was very nice but when I got home I realized all they did was throw my steak in a box no sides none of my sauces or anything. Unfortunately we tried here because we have family who has worked under Mr Palmer for a long time and it was not at all what we were expecting. For a 250 meal for 2 people the service should have been a lot better.

    Service was top notch. We had a quiet spot that seemed very secluded. Ambiance was lovely but not too stuffy. But the food! Ribeye and filet mignon were some of the best ever! And creamed spinach was perfection. Expensive but so worth it!
