- I hate to give bad reviews, but...DanaSDined on 11/7/2014Made a reservation, we were 1/2 hour late due to an accident on the hwy. No matter, the restaurant was not busy on a Friday night, which was good since we had a show to catch at 8:00,which we let our server know. We arrived at 6:30, cocktails served right away, orders taken right away, salads right away, and then nothing for 45 minutes. In that time, our waitress completely disappeared, and a man came by after 1/2 hour later (manager? bartender? host?) and asked if everything is ok. When we realized the time, he said he'd take care of it right away, and 15 minutes later we were shoveling our food down and paying the bill. Duck was over cooked, polenta presented in a dry ball that looked like it had been scooped from an ice cream scoop. Ironically, food looked like it had been sitting for a long time, and we were waiting urgently to eat. Maybe this was a one-off experience, and I hope so. Sadly for us, it was not good.
- Fatty Steak and Slow ServicebluepryntDined on 10/23/2014When I first arrived, they told me that my booking with Open Table was non existent because they switched over to a new system. Then after being seated, we waited 10 minutes for the waitress to come for our drink order. I ordered 1 beer, and that took an additional 10 minutes to come out. There was only 1 waitress for the entire restaurant. We then ordered our food: the mushroom crown, clam chowder, chicken cordon bleu, and ribeye steak. The first 3 items were decent, but the steak was 70% fat. I'm a health conscience person so I cut away all the fat. I had a couple bites of the steak and I was done.
- Slow to startOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 9/13/2014Walking in, it's left to the bartender to greet you when he's available. We were asked to find a table and we'd have a server in a few minutes. It took awhile for the only server to come over with menus and take our drink orders. But after that service was fine. Food was great, we love the Mushroom Basket as an appetizer.
- First TimersNettieDined on 9/6/2014WE had the best time EVER! The drinks, the food, the service were all just so fabulous! Can't wait to go back and enjoy ourselves! Happy hour is fabulous!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- One of the worse on your ListingDiamondFirstVIPDined on 8/6/2014This place is of very low quality and should not be on your listing. We love Open Table and have always trusted your selections until this one. It is a noisy messy hole in the wall. Sorry but we entered and left before having dinner.

- BrunchBakingmamaDined on 5/11/2014Came here for brunch on Mother's Day. We had made reservations and were seated as soon as we arrived. The brunch buffet was really good. Nice variety of food and everything tasted delicious. Service was good, staff was friendly. I would definitely try it again.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Kid Friendly Mother's Day BrunchMacGregorDined on 5/11/2014We love this place. Great atmosphere, kid friendly and ample booth seating. This Mother's Day we had a reservation for 6 (2 adults, 2 children, 1 toddler and 1 infant). The restaurant has excellent food and fantastic service. It was buffet style with a multitude of options: fruit, blueberry pancakes, full half crabs, bottomless mimosas, crab benedict, and the requisite bacon, eggs, sausage, hash browns. All delicious!Special Features:
- At least it's close . . .HallieDined on 5/9/2014Eating within short walking distance (2 - 3 blocks) of the Wells Fargo Pavilion/Sacramento Theatre Company/Music Circus is difficult. Eating great food in that circle is impossible.Special Features:
- LindsDined on 5/3/2014Great server - very responsive, funny and well acquainted with the menu. Food was fine - particularly for the reasonable prices. The place did not appear to be as clean as I would have like - spots on the chairs and carpet.
- Great Food and ServiceSpinitDined on 4/24/2014The rib eye steak came with tasty horseradish sauce and au juice sauce, and it was huge. Great veggies. Good calamari. Excellent service. Good value too...very reasonably priced. A winner in every sense.Special Features:
- easter brunchpickyeaterDined on 4/20/2014My husband and I went for Easter brunch. It was our first time at the restaurant. The food was good and the service was great. The food selection and freshness was great. Parking was OK but it was shared with Best Western hotel which made it confusing. I would go back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Oh my what a floppiobreDined on 3/15/2014This is the most disappointing restaurant we have dined in in All of Sacramento. The service was superb and attentive but the food was almost inedible. I am not sure if some of the food was just microwaved and had never seen a stove. Surely the kitchen staff can do better than this.
- Food was good and deliveredenergy05Dined on 2/15/2014Food was good and delivered quickly. Wait staff was short staffed so service at first was slow.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Valentine's dinnerjleffDined on 2/14/2014We arrived on time for our reservation and were seated immediately. I had flowers delivered before hand and those were waiting for my date and I. There was a slight discrepancy between the online menu and the in resturaunt menu. The server was able to have a special dinner made up for my date. The food was good, service was good. Would return and recommend.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Salt pleaseFoodIsGoodDined on 2/14/2014There was nearly no seasoning on the food. I wish I knew it is located in a best western hotel!
- Blue PryntoldscoutDined on 2/14/2014New to the area and went to Blue Prynt for Valentine's Day dinner with my wife, who is a foodie. Took a chance just from reviews and had a great time. The place was not noisy and you could carry on a conversation without shouting like at some other midtown restaurants. My food was prepared perfectly ( surf and turf) and they had a good tap beer selection. The wait staff was friendly and attentive but not hovering. Lots of easy parking, even on a Friday night. Had a drink outside at the small outdoor seating area. My wife rated her experience as excellent. I shall return.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Disappointed50SomethingDined on 2/14/2014I was really hoping to be wowed, but overall this restaurant falls short. The food was good, but not special. The Lemon Drop Martini was very good and not over priced. Service was very good. Waiter knew when to come to the table, and when not to, which is a hard skill for many waiters. The biggest disappointment was the restaurant decor ~ Upscale Denny's at best. It is disjointed and really doesn't make a statement of what kind of restaurant it wants to be. The name says it all ~ just a "blue print" of a restaurant.
- goodlynneyDined on 2/14/2014Found servie to be excellent . Food good but wanted larger portion of duck.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- the entrance is confusingOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 2/12/2014the entrance is confusing for diners waiting to be seated. There isn't a hostess station or reception area.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good Eatsluv2eatDined on 1/17/2014The Dine Downtown program gave me the chance to experience a new place. The food and service was excellent. The recommendations by the staff were outstanding. All of us loved the food that we ordered and will definitely come again and again.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good, but not great. BasedOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 1/16/2014Good, but not great. Based on decor and menu, I'm not sure what the theme of the restaurant was, so that was slightly odd. Not entirely sure that I will seek this restaurant out again, but if I somehow found myself back, I won't throw a fit.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Dine Downtown at Blue PryntjwinDined on 1/15/2014I went with 2 friends and it was disappointing. The food in some cases was very good, and in others bad. I had fish which was overcooked, and the risotto it was served with was flavorful, but not as creamy as expected. The waiter tried to warn us off of the polenta, and we should have taken his advice. The first drink was awesome, but the second had to be sent back. The decor is disjointed, and I have had much better food and atmosphere at other places in Sac. With a dew tweaks they could be great, but for now I wont be back.
- Food is good and price is rightTeddyDined on 1/15/2014We came because of the Dine Sacramento event but got a lot for our money. Had the three course meal. Prime rib was excellent could not eat it all the piece was so large. Loved the chowder and had a decadent chocolate dessert. Server was very good and all in all it was a great find.Special Features:
- Just a neighborhood jointDinerHawk14Dined on 1/15/2014They tried to be upscale but it was a bit disappointing. It was extremely noisy. We arrived at 6:30 and the restaurant was full and bar was full with after-work drinkers (they emptied out by 7:30). Our table was ready and placed under a glaring spotlight (nix any romantic thoughts). The 5 of us all had the prix fixe meals. The waitstaff seemed to be overwhelmed and food timing was way off. One of our cocktails was forgotten until we reminded them. With so much variety and choices of restaurants out there now, I'll probably keep trying other spots for dinner.Special Features:
- DisappointedThirstyDined on 1/14/2014Went to Blue Prynt as part of the dine downtown Sacramento week on a Tuesday evening at 6:30 pm. Waited 10 minutes before a waiter talked to us, then waited 35 minutes for 4 drinks. The wine list is poor. The Manhattan was small and watered down badly. The food was pretty weak; overcooked calamari, overcooked prime rib, lousy bread. The duck breast was OK. Desserts were average. Overall it was a very unimpressive evening of drinks, dinner and restaurant.
- Great dinners, wines and dessertsBeccaVIPDined on 1/14/2014My husband and I along with our friends loved the food, wine and dessert. We would like to come back.Special Features:
- Prime Rib was good. CalamariNeighborVIPDined on 1/14/2014Prime Rib was good. Calamari appetizer was a bit tough and chewy.Special Features:
- BEST POLENTA, ever!hapacjDined on 1/13/2014Not a polenta fan, but this was outstanding. Duck breast was good too. Can't go wrong with chocolate strawberriesSpecial Features:
- Downtown Dine experienceGayleDined on 1/12/2014This was one of a large number of restaurants participating in Sacramento's downtown dine annual event. After viewing the list of participating restaurants,we chose Blue Prynt because we had nto been there before, and because i had a favorable online review. The selections for the prix fix dinner included an appetizer, soup or salad, entree and dessert, one more that the majority of other participating restaurants. We both enjoyed our selections in each category. Service wasfriendly,but not very timely.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Server brought wrong bottleBaseballMomDined on 1/12/2014Server brought wrong bottle of wine at first, then just poured right bottle for everyone without asking if we wanted to taste. Took 20 minutes to get bread; appetizers and salads came at same time. Main entrees were cold, had obviously been sitting under a heat lamp for long time. Appetizers and dessert were great, but would not go back.
- It started out greatlisascircleDined on 1/12/2014The good; the server was friendly and made personal recommendations. She was attentive for the first part of the meal. The bad; I'm not sure what happened, but there was a long wait for our entrée and when we received them the sides were all cold. The service when downhill as the restaurant got busy. I made the mistake of not getting water when we were seated, thinking my iced tea would be refilled in a timely manner. I did get the tea refilled eventually, but no ice. The food was okay, but nothing to go back for.
- Hidden gemfjcsDined on 1/11/2014At first glance we were a little hesitant. However, the service was excellent as well as the food. This place is truly a hidden gem. We will be back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- timing of bringing out food was offSaruVIPDined on 1/11/2014the water, appetizers, soup, and salad came out immediately. we had to wait quite a while for the entrees. we had to ask for bread. the phyllo dough mushroom appetizer was outstanding as was the phyllo dough dessert. the caesar salad was terrible. I couldn't figure out how they could make this salad so bad. My husband said his prime rib was good; my daughter's duck was ok, but not great. My halibut was dry. I think the fish had been sitting under hot lights for some time. Risotto was tasty.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Dine outTobyVIPDined on 1/11/2014Went for the dine out Sacramento meal. Good choices and excellent fare! Apetizer was shared, but the mushroom dish was plenty for two.Special Features:
- Went during the $31/platelike2eatDined on 1/10/2014Went during the $31/plate Sacramento Downtown Dining Out. Food was great, the mushroom basket outstanding. Duck breast a little dried out. Furniture needs remodeling. Overall would go again.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Service great!! Food disappointingCEUSDined on 1/10/2014We revisited the Blue Prynt during Dine Downtown event since we had such an excellent meal last year and have been back since for Happy Hour and dining out; sadly we found this experience "wanting". Sadly, they did not offer the lobster chowder; soup was just 'okay' The service was attentive, however, we found our mashed potatoes too salty and our prime rib overdone (we ordered rare to medium rare and was served medium... It would appear they ran out earlier of our selection but did not give us a choice for an alternative. We likes the mushroom basket but would suggest that they heated the mushrooms in the basket prior to service. The two highlights was the awesome Jalapeño margaritas and the Phyllo Flower desser inventive and satisfyingSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
