Luxury dining in the Sparks Marina. The Steak House Western Village makes a patron feel like a million dollars. Sitting in cream colored, oval-style booths surrounded by a palace worthy of statues, lights, and candles, this restaurant is simply gorgeous. Waiters and waitresses come around with carts to showcase the wine, food, and desserts. Cannot say enough good things about the service, because they make the memory. These servers know how to give someone a night to remember. If splurging on fine dining is in the budget, this steak house will not disappoint. A lot of people go in groups and make reservations ahead of time — don’t feel left out — but the bar is worth a stop alone.
Bricks Restaurant & Wine Bar
1695 S Virginia St, Reno, NV 89502
Bricks is the special occasion on a Monday type of restaurant and wine bar. One that puts a patron in the scene of a New York City restaurant. Think of sitting in a dimly lit room, white cloth over the table with wine racks and majestic paintings restaurant; however, Bricks’ new courtyard patio make take the cake. An awning covers the tables to this uptown, picture perfect type of date night patio. Now eating here is a three-course must, four if vino is included. Besides wine, the bruschetta is a great starter, followed by the elk steaks, and finishing the night with crème brûlée. Can’t miss this place as it’s next to the crossing of S. Virginia St. and Plumb Ln.

“Because La Famiglia’s first rule is “quality ingredients,” you will often find a special that includes food from ingredients that are local and in-season.” How does that not excite someone for a meal? La Famiglia is having dinner at a neighborhood Italian restaurant. Once sitting down, take in the pictures and smell the marinara. Then, gaze upon the menu which include favorites baked manicotti, stuffed shells or eggplant parmigiana. Can’t forget wine; cannoli to top it all off.
