Smith and River

About us

The Smith family presents their latest concept in this American Bistro right on the Truckee River in downtown Reno. Expect fresh ingredients and friendly service in a vibrant ambiance. Our style is just like spending quality time with family. Approachable, inviting and made with love.

In 2007, Colin and MaryBeth Smith opened Roundabout Bistro in the Somersett area (which is where the name came from), where it quickly became a local's favorite.

In 2011, the Bistro closed so that Roundabout Catering & Party Rentals could focus on the catering and event planning business.

The business quickly moved from a home kitchen to a comprehensive catering facility featuring a large industrial kitchen, a fleet of delivery trucks, a full-sized food truck and a warehouse of party rental equipment. Not only does Roundabout service clients all over the Reno-Sparks-Lake Tahoe area, but its team of experts services inspiring venues such as the National Automobile Museum, Rancharrah and the Elm Estate.

Roundabout owns and operates several business units including catering, party rentals, Roundabout Meal Prep, the Tesla Cafe at Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center, the Cafe at the Nevada Museum of Art and Tannenbaum Events Center. Chef Colin is the consulting chef for 14 Escape Lounges in airports across the U.S., including the Reno-Tahoe International Airport. From 2016-2020, the Smiths operated Roundabout Grill inside The Whitney Peak Hotel in downtown Reno.
