Different. Not romantic. Kinda hipster but in a cool way. You will like it. Frozen Apple juice is incredible. Try the grilled cheese too. I think it's vegan. I'm not. It's still kinda awesome.

I like the food--very tasty and vegan. I've been going there for years. It can get crowded and service is not always fast as it's a small place, Very interesting menu with reasonable prices. Street parking and pleasant wait staff. More competition in Reno than...More

When we visit Reno, this has always been our favorite restaurant. But, I think that's changing. Last time we were there, a few months ago, they were "out" of our favorite dish - the vegetarian lasagna. When we were there again recently, they were again...More

This place is hard to find but worth it. Up a flight of stairs in a decrepit old hotel with a small sidewalk sign outside, across from the greyhound station and the river park off. It is a small place with great windows and tables...More

There's nothing quite like Pneumatic DIner and that's what makes it cool. It's all-veg, small, funky, on the 2nd floor, with a fun menu, wild decor, and passionate staff. We go to PD every time we're in Reno and always look forward to doing so...More

Overall, they had good food that did not really blow me away. But it is solid. I expected more diner style food, and instead they had a more typical vegetarian restaurant mix (you don't get falafel at a diner, for example). The service was good....More

I'm not a big fan of hummus and such, but it's a quirky little place that's worth at least one visit.
