This restaurant is great. The portions are huge, the food is really good and the service is outstanding. The only drawback is that it is extremely noisy.

Waitress was great, very personable
Waitress was great, very personable, attentive but wasn't obtrusive (I wish I could remember her name). We had the Eggs Benedict and the hollandaise sause was well prepared and wasn't cold when we got our plates. However, the eggs were a bit over-cooked. We were surprised that even though every table was full, the noise level seemed really low. Overall we had a great experience and we'll be back again.

Perhaps the best steak I've
Perhaps the best steak I've had in my life. The portobello on the sandwiche that my friend ordered was charred beyond recognition and had to be removed and discarded. No compensation was offered. Also it was his birthday and there was no recognition of the event.

The reservation was for 5pm
The reservation was for 5pm and when I arrived a note on the door indicated that a private party had reserved the whole place at 6! But not to worry, we were accommodated quite nicely and service was great. It was interesting to watch the staff gussy up the place for the special event. My friend and I were never rushed to give up the one table that we occupied. Our meal was tasty and I highly recommend the hummus veggie plate; very filling as an appetizer to share, or as a meal for one (though a few more pieces of the delicious crusty toast would be appropriate). The wine selection is good and at a fair price. I wish that we had been offered or asked about dessert, those I saw from afar looked intriguing. Capital Garage remains a favorite.

Good food, very noisy and cluttered
Close to convention center, in the corner of the Residence Inn parking structure, aka the Capitol Garage. American Diner menu reasonably priced. Spinach Salad with garlic shrimp excellent. Others had brisket sandwich, Cobb salad and burgers. Plates were cleaned. Happy Hour good, appetizers for Happy Hour very generous. Painted with street art so the walls are very busy and not easy on the eyes. No restful place to look. Very noisy b/c all surfaces bounce the noise, hard walls, floor & tables, lots of glass and the outside seating is open to the inside so there's street noise as well. Outside seating is probably quieter. Party of 7 but could only hear 3-4 closest to us and still difficult. Our waiter had difficulty hearing us.

Great outdoor seating. I really liked the relaxed atmosphere. Brunch selection was nice and they have good vegetarian choices. The staff was very friendly and attentive. I will definitely go here again when I'm in Sacramento.

The food was amazing! The staff was a little rude.

Mother's Day at the Capitol Garage
A special meal for Mom at a Garage? You wouldn't usually make that connection, and you might be afraid of getting engine grit in the eggs florentine. But at the Capitol Garage, the landmark trendy eatery in midtown Sacramento, we had the portobello benedict, the shrimp rancheros, the kahlua coffee, the pear-up, and the caliente bloody mary--all served flawlessly in the Garage's funky, but family-oriented atmosphere. The flavors popped in each colorful concoction, and, after our leisurely brunch, we enjoyed the short walk to the rose garden on the State Capitol grounds. It doesn't get better than this.

We went here because we we
We went here because we we looking for a place to have brunch, downtown, near K St. The location and unlimited champagne mimosas is what sold us and we're glad we picked this place. The food was very good and service outstanding. They have a small, outside eating area but, being a "garage", they have roll-up doors which lets the inside open up to the outside, making it a nice, airy place on a warm day. It's nice too that it's walking distance to all of the amenities on downtown K Street.

I had brunch at the Capital Garage last November while visiting my daughter in Sacramento and loved it! So, for the morning after her graduation we had family to feed and this was the first place we both thought of. The bottomless mimosas were great; the spicey Bloody Mary even better. The variety of eggs benedict and other breakfast and lunch items to choose from is always different and delicious. We had a table of eight hungry people. The waiter was very knowledgable and the service was quick and efficient. I will definitely go back when I'm back in the area.

Delightful dinning experience
The quesadilla was excellent -loved the freshly made guacamole. Hamburger was delicious and big enough for two people. The fries were tasty with parsley flakes, garlic, and paprika seasoning. The BBQ brisket sandwich was flavorful-great suggestion from the waiter. Wish there was a dessert menu to end the dinning experience. Overall, excellent experience. Would go back again and again.
5/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
The menu was original with a nice variety. I had the brisket sandwich, and my wife had pasta dish loaded with veggies. The prices were fantastic and the service was friendly. I'd go back for sure.

Small kitchen food slow to come out when busy. Food is excellent .

We came two weeks in a row for brunch...might make it three!

Great Gluten Free Find!
The food is excellent. They have quite a few gluten free choices which really worked well for my husband who has Celiac Disease.

Great food at reasonable prices
Another wonderful meal at Capitol Garage. Dessert was very tasty too!

Capitol Garage brunch
We are here on 4th of July...bottomless mimosas and an excellent breakfast! Our server was so great, I wish I remembered her name. She was very accommodating to our picky requests.

vegan menu items
Always have several great items on the menu that are vegan. Great happy hour deals and wonderful that happy hour occurs every day.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We ate outside and enjoyed their plentiful breakfasts -- heartily recommend the large mushroom omelet.
Server was very attentive the entire time. Food was good, we'll be back.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Have been to Capitol Garage many times, usually before seeing a show at Community Center theater or Music Circus. 3-4 block walk to either place. Parking is generally easier for the theater because you're in the area earlier than most show-goers.
Have enjoyed everything I've eaten there. Their Brunch menu is particularly large and varied. Plus, they serve Brunch later then most places (2 pm, I think)
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Yes the best deal for brunch. Mimosas to the brim. Lucy is also the best server there...always makes sure my glass is charged with drinks all day.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoy our Sunday morning brunch here quite often!
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Brunch and the rest
We always come here for Sunday/funday brunch. Great staff here and great food. Oh and the mimosas are excellent with bottomless service till 3pm.

Excellent food, inattentive service
Excellent coconut curry with vegetables, tofu and chicken, but the servers did not pay much attention to us.

GREAT LOCAL PLACE
I had the spinach salad with chicken. It's pretty difficult to come up with an innovative and unique salad, yet Capitol Garage has done it very well! The citrus dressing was perfectly balanced against the blue cheese, fresh dried cranberries, nuts and fresh spinach. The chicken was cooked perfectly and there was a smoky essence from the grill, creating a lasting impression. Sorry to say the dessert was a disappointment. I had the banana creme pie. While the filling was non traditional (rather dark more like pumpkin) and tasty, the crust was tough and hard, suggesting too much flour in the preparation. Service was very nice and my waiter was enthusiastic about the food. I'd highly recommend this place.
8/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
My favorite breakfast spot
And I am a big, big fan of breakfast. I would strongly recommend the brunch sliders with a side of gravy. Donuggets are also outstanding, as is the mushroom omelette and the pancakes. So far, I've been impressed with everything I've ordered, and I love the servers.

Loud but worth it
Excellent food, friendly service. Not the kind of place to go if you want to converse, however. Busy lunch time chatter gets loud in what is a relatively small space with lots of hard surfaces that tend to amplify discussions. Brisket sandwich was terrific. Will definitely do it again.

We had a party of ten, service
We had a party of ten, service was good as we all were lively in conversation. Prices were reasonable. Food good, but not a huge menu. Meat Bowls and salads primary. Don't expect a quiet restaurant, but more of a comfortable casual relaxed environment. Sports on the tv. Bar.

Geeks who Drink
My friend and I came for the Doctor Who Geeks who Drink night and it was amazing! We asked for a specialty drink and the bartender guy had not problem making it! The food was delicious and filling! The waiters and waitresses were all awesome and friendly! Even though it was an event night and the restaurant was packed, it never felt suffocating or too packed like a sardine can! It was so awesome!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and service
Very polite staff members. Pork Rancheros is amazing.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food at CG is delicious! I've found the service to be somewhat lacking in the past but the food makes up for it. The last 2 times I've been in I've had 5 star treatment so I'm hoping they've taken notice and fixed that problem. Again the service is now as good as the food! I highly recommend the Leaky Roof and the beer and cheese risotto cakes. Delish!

Wait staff fabulous. Salmon salad the best. Try the Mexican mocha for a treat!
