Looking for a restaurant for a birthday dinner in downtown Reno. Staying at Harrahs and would love to walk. Looking for delicious food...possible tasting menu....or just a lovely dinner.

    I love the Santa Fe, but it may be a bit casual for the birthday dinner OP speaks of. The Steakhouse is good as is La Strada in the Eldorado, but for more of a fine dining experience I would head to LuLou's or Sezmu - both 5 minute drives from Harrahs. Within walking distance (along the river) is Daughters Cafe on the corner of First & Bell. They serve dinner only on Fri and Sat nites, and have a lovely outdoor patio and really yummy food.

    Lulou's Restaurant

    Sezmu Restaurant

      Informal and good with a group would be the Santa Fe Hotel right behind Harrah's parking structure -- good Basque food. The Harrah's Steak House right there at your hotel is very good.

      Santa Fe Hotel
      235 Lake St, Reno, NV 89501
