Very good food and service. The location is also very nice right along a creek. This definitely doesn't feel like a typical Reno restaurant. Definitely a class above.

It is so difficult to rate these restaurants that are above average in Reno, but not so worldwide. I would also say, it would rate them towards average given the price paid (my expectations for a hanger steak frites are just much higher at $35, both for the meat and the fries!), but Beaujolais is certainly better than average in...

The food was the best I think we've ever had in a restaurant. Duck confit, bluenose bass, onion soup, and more, all delicious and attractively presented. Service was friendly but not intrusive, efficient and attentive. The restaurant facility is lovely, airy and open but at the same time an intimate feel at the table. In its previous life it looks...

We've been here to dine several times now. The food has always been great, along with the wine list and service. When the weather is better, we have eaten outside on tables set on the grass.

We had dinner here on Dec 22, 2016. Our waiter was a pro who knew the menu and wine list perfectly. The chef also came by the table to visit during the meal, a nice touch. The menu is small but excellent. The highlight of the dinner was their Cassoulet. It was the best I have had in the US.... More

Beaujolais Bistro has become our "go to" for special occasions. We have enjoyed the food and service in the past, so we reserved a table a few weeks in advance, got all dressed up and arrived a few minutes early. We were told we couldn't have our table because it was set for four. We have never heard this before,... More

Wow. How's that for a review? Ok, maybe you want a bit more info... The service is top notch; you always feel like your needs are being attended to, but not in an overtly obnoxious way. Someone is always nearby and available, so you don't feel like you've got to go looking for somebody if you need something. Very nice... More

The most important thing to relate on our fourth visit is how fantastic the chicken in cream sauce with morels was. It was sublime, the perfect cream sauce. I can never get it this good at home. The service was great. They fixed an issue quickly with out a problem. The martinis were perfect. Love this place. What a welcome... More

My mom aunt and I went to Beaujolais Bistro a little later in the evening after we had gone to the Animal Ark to watch the cheetahs run. Beaujolais Bistro is located a few blocks west of downtown Reno in the most charming neighborhood that I have seen in Reno along the Truckee River. The restaurant is in an old... More

This small French restaurant is in a pretty, quiet setting beside the Truckee River, a short walk from downtown Reno. In style, it is reminiscent of a neighborhood bistro in France and the menu features traditional and modern dishes emphasizing local ingredients. We were pleased to find that the quality and preparation of our dishes was similar to what might... More
