This is my favorite place to eat local, healthy and DELICIOUS food in Reno. They are switching to a supper club style offering so be sure to check their website to be sure they are open before visiting. If they are open, DON'T miss out.

The Bowl is an amazing restaurant that is our go-to place to eat in downtown Reno. It is an easy place to eat with a relaxed atmosphere, very affordable but very high quality food that you can't get anywhere else. Larry Dunning (owner) is remarkable in how he combines ingredients and spices to make a very unique dish. The Jerk... More

The dining experience at Bowl was different, unique in presentation and taste. Situated in a unique section of Reno. The food extremely will done, mixes one wouldn't normally try. The staff welcomed us with a smile and warm welcome. Seating was a little odd, but added to the experience.

This laid back bistro with semi-open kitchen has a small menu, specialising in fresh, healthy, innovative and delicious fare, including some good vegetarian options. Simplicity of presentation goes hand in hand with sophisticated (and mouth-wateringly good) pairing of locally sourced ingredients. Range of beverages is limited but well chosen. Service was extremely personable if a little slow, perhaps due to... More

Small place in west street market area. A little hard to find. Small and intimate. All food served together in a bowl. Jerk chicken was interesting and pork shoulder was tasty. Have starch, vegetable and protein served all together in a bowl just isn't for me.

Very Well Prepared. YES!!! Nice (small) Menu. Nice atmosphere-able to eat at the wine bar next door. The Bowls have very creative combinations, and delish! I had the scallop bowl with Au Gratin potatoes and spinach in the most fantastic sauce. They were out of scallps ;-( and I had a Sole instead, but it was still delicious! I wish... More

We love Bowl. We find ourselves bringing all of our out of town friends here, just to eat here more often and share the best of Reno. Everything imaginative and innovative in sustainable food is created into beautiful bowls of amazing food. We love so many of the dishes we've tried and we've never had a bad one. Even the... More

This great, semi-hidden spot is within the West Street Market complex just next to the river in downtown Reno. The menu offers a lot of variety through a small number of dishes, all using local, fresh ingredients in sophisticated preparations. The market space includes a great wine bar, a regular bar, and a couple of other restaurants.The chef/owner of this... More

This place has a unique approach to food in a bowl. It is not just soup and salad, but dishes such as Moroccan meatballs, duck confit and chicken farfelle. Each dish uses local seasonal ingredients and the menu changes with the seasons. The meals were beautifully presented, tasty and filling. The garden salad (which three of us shared) was very...

Bowl has all of the flavor and creativity of a top tier restaurant in a relaxed atmosphere in downtown Reno. The owner/chef prepares the food at the open air kitchen that takes up a good portion of the small space. I had the Duck Confit bowl, which was amazing! Looking forward to going back.
