Diner Reviews
  • "Although staff was friendly & food great there was undue delay between courses & the fine house chard was not avai;lable for dining--only happy hour. Noisy for a Tuesday night."

  • "When we booked the reservation, we did not know that it was a prix fixe menu. We stayed anyway, and it was delicious. However, we did not want that much food."

  • "Although Granite Bay is an undoubtedly affluent area, it was unexpected to find such big-city flavour in a quiet little town, far from the madding crowd!"

  • "Two friends and I celebrated a belated birthday dinner at Hawks. Every minute was a delight. The service was impeccable, and the food met any expectations and more. Two of us had the Barramundi and the other chose the salmon. All of us were very pleased with our choice. Our favorite appetizer was the Buffalo mozzarella with grilled bread…..excellent. And the desserts were a challenge to decide, but the Hawks Bar and the Brioche Beignets won out. The waiter must have overheard our birthday conversation because I was surprised with a Happy Birthday message written in chocolate on my dessert plate with a small lighted birthday candle set in a scoop of ice cream. Obviously our choice for another night out!…..or more!!"

  • "My wife and I have been to Hawks several times, and on this occasion we had another couple join us. I indicated that the noise level was energetic, but that was only true until we asked to be seated outside. It had been a very warm day so the restaurant had not set up its outdoor tables earlier, but by 7:00 pm the temperature was going down and it was quite comfortable. As has been true on our previous visits, the food was delicious, and prepared exactly right. Our friends were very impressed with both the quality of the food and the service we received. Our server was attentive without being intrusive, and was quite useful in helping us select menu items all the way through to desert."

  • "Brought business clients for lunch. I never had a 3 hour lunch. Server disappears, took over an hour to get lunch food. Horrible! Embarresed to keep clients that long. Will never go to lunch at Hawks again"

  • "I took my parents to lunch here and everything was delicious! I had the seared ahi and it was fabulous. Service was good also."

  • "I had the fish with a salad starter while my bride of 52 years had the short rib (house specialty). The food was very good but doesn't reach the outstanding category. The wine list is good but the prices for wine are as high as I have seen anywhere. I paid $15 for a small glass of the cheapest chardonnay."

  • "We are transplants from SF Bay Area and really love it here with the exception of restaurants. We have had no good (bay area) quality meals until we were told about Hawks. It was very good. The atmosphere is just not up to the quality of the food. All in all a very good experience."

  • "My husband and I go there each year for our wedding anniversary. Never disappointed...ever! We had the chef tastings menu and enjoyed every dish that was served to us. The steak was over the top delicious! Will definitely go again and have recommended it to all our friends."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Hawks is our favorite restaurant in the Roseville/Granite Bay area including many well known restaurants such as Ruth Chris Steak House. The food is consistently excellent. We had a soufflé which did not require early ordering. The entrees were excellent, as usual, including delicious short ribs and ribeye steak."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "As always Hawks was a memorable dinning experience. My mother and I had a lovely time, my duck was perfectly cooked with a great crispy crust and tender and juicy meat. My mothers short ribs sauce was fantastic, just the right hint of sweetness. The staff at Hawks is always helpful and so friendly. Cocktails are some of the best I have ever had, inventive and fresh ingredients used all of the time. Love it all !"

  • "We went to Hawks to celebrate a special occasion for the family, and brought two bottles of wine from our cellar. The food we ordered was prepared with quality presentation and timely delivery. However, two comments are worth mentioning: First, we asked for one of the bottles to be decanted when we were seated, and repeated the request to our server. Our server did not act upon the request so we had to ask a third time, which reduced the amount of time the wine was breathing before the main coursed arrived. Second, it was obvious that the server was polite but not able or interested in engaging us in conversation about the wine list. For good food in a beautiful setting, Hawks is ideal; the desserts were wonderful."

  • "Hawks just continues to get better. Hawks is very local to us so we tend to go there more than restaurants downtown. However food quality and service are our top priorities so we drive downtown as needed for the best food in the Sac area. Hawks is easily in the top three in Sac metro and can always be counted on for dining perfection. Menu tends to be a little limited and doesn't change very often or we would eat there exclusively. We drive another 40 minutes each way when we want to enjoy other menu items."

  • "Great evening and a wonderful dinner. We had the 5 course tasting menu, so can't comment on the a la carte options. Every dish was a delight. Courses nicely paced, two great amuse bouche to start off, and an incredible dessert wine for the last as part of the wine pairing. Service excellent, ambiance pretty good considering this is in a (higher end) retail center in Granite Bay. We normally dine in midtown/downtown, but for a special dinner this was well worth the drive. We will return."

  • "My wife and I went to Hawks for our 5 year wedding anniversary dinner. It was our first time eating here and it was seriously amazing! My wife and I both said it was the best food experience we've ever had. We had a drink at the bar while we waited for our table. The bartenders were very nice and made a great drink! Then we ordered gnocchi and corn soup to share as apps. They were both delicious. For dinner we both had steak and it was great. Finished it off with two amazing desserts to share. They both came out with "happy anniversary" on the plates in chocolate sauce. (I asked about this ahead of time) We had their hawks bar and the beignets with caramel sauce and they were both so good! Great way to end an amazing dining experience"

    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "This is very picky, and really the only thing that I can ever fault at Hawks, when a server uses the royal "We" when asking about anything drives me nuts. There is no "We", unless the server is planning to join my wife and I. And, it would be so easy to fix. Like I said it is picky."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "We began going to Hawks when they first opened and if anything they've gotten better over the years. It's everything you want in fine dinning. The service is attentive without being overbearing. The atmosphere is sophisticated and relaxed. The food is absolutely delicious with great selection. And the presentation begs to have your camera come out. Would I recommend Hawks? I already have on several occasions."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Hawks is a beautiful restaurant. The decor is classy with being pretentious. It is well lit and lends itself to both inside and outside. The wine list is nice and the menu appears to be seasonal. Portions a tad on the small side. Our service was wonderful until our meal was served, then we didn't see our wait staff, but we flooded with water refills. A lovely spot for a special occasion. "

  • "Sunday Supper at Hawk's is prix fixe. There's one menu so you might want to check out the menu online before you make your reservation. I did and decided that everything sounded like food we would enjoy. We weren't disappointed. We also thought it was a very good value........$40 which included an appetizer, salad, entre, and dessert. The portions were not skimpy; everything was delicious and up to Hawk's glowing reputation. They also offered 25% off on full bottles of wine at Sunday Supper. We had excellent service......friendly, attentive, but not intrusive. I'm sure we'll be going to Hawk's again in the not too distant future. "

  • "We came here on a Sunday evening not realizing the limited menu. Everything was delicious, and it was nice to try some things that we may not have ordered if the entire menu was available. The service was excellent. We look forward to coming back again soon."

  • "Hawks was a great choice for our Anniversary Dinner. The service was excellent, friendly, informative and gave us time to enjoy our drinks and meal. The food was we exquisite and as other reviewers noted the short ribs were amazing! We will definitely return."

  • "When talking with the managers of Biba's, one of my favorite Sacramento restaurants, he asked if we had tried Hawks. It's been on my to-do list ever since. I was able to get there for lunch last week and was very impressed by the quality of the food. It was quiet enough for conversation -- rare these days. The signature dessert, The Hawk Bar is outstanding, but be prepared to share it. It's far too big for one."

  • "Hawks is perfect! The food is outstanding the mixed drinks are amazing and the service impeccable. The prices are high but you get a truly wonderful restaurant experience. "

  • "My husband and I have been to Hawks several times however never on a Sunday night. We did not know that on Sunday nights they have a "Family Dinner Night " and they have a set menu. My husband and I were a little disappointed because the dinner was fried chicken, collard greens and black eyed peas. Although it was fine, it was not what we really were expecting from a restaurant like Hawks. I wish Open Table had some way to include this information because I never would have made the reservation if I knew about the set menu. Overall the visit was fine but more memorable because the home dinner meal instead of the fine food we normally get there."

  • "I had the chicken with the nice fresh salad. It was very good My friend had the salmon salad and she said the salmon had no flavor. The waiter brought out some dill sauce and she said it was a little better. I would never order the salad myself."

  • "We have lived in Sacramento for over 10 years and our dinner at Hawks last weekend was far and away the best meal out that we've had. Highly recommended. Only downside was that it was so loud in the restaurant that we requested to sit outside."

  • "This past Sunday my wife and I took her mother and a guest to Hawkes for the Mothers' Day Brunch. The food and service was absolutely first rate. The ambience was perfect. And the price for this style of meal was appropriate. It had been awhile since we had last been there since our normal pattern is to dine closer to downtown Sacramento, but the experience was so good that I questioned myself why we had not been back sooner! We had made our reservation relatively close to Mothers' Day for this type of event and only had the option of the last seating -- which attests to the popularity and loyalty of its patrons. So reservations are a must."

  • "Jeff and I had dinner on the patio on Saturday night. The food was, as always, divine. He had the Artic Char and I had the house made Tagliarini with clams in white wine reduction. We split the beignets with salted caramel dip and had coffee cozied up by the fire on the sofa. Lovely! Last week, we stopped in for a quick bite and had the same great service. I enjoyed the halibut and he had the Hawks burger, which is the best in town. So happy to have such quality food and service here in Granite Bay! "
