Food

The signature dish is the Chilean Sea Bass. The fish melts in your mouth and is accompanied with bacon wrapped asparagus and buttery mashed potatoes. If you want steak, the rib eye is for a hungry appetite served with pomme frittes. The wine list is extensive with something at every price point. Try the Lexie's house salad over the Caesar. Food Review: A-

Atmosphere

Comfortable seating with a restaurant feel, nicely away from the noise and lights of the casino floor. Large windows yield nice views of the Truckee River which runs next to the Siena. The seating is well spaced-out, giving the dining room a quiet and intimate feel. Atmosphere Review: A-

Service

As expected with an intimate fine dining restaurant, the service should be impeccable and invisible. Lexie's does not disappoint, you'll be taken care of with the focus on you and your dining. Service Review: B+

Value
