    Spacious, pleasant setting with lovely outdoor courtyard, and very attentive and professional service. The food was unexceptional but certainly acceptable. Serving potato salad with a $19 entree was a disappointment. Day specials are overpriced at over $30.

    We took my parents out for an anniversary celebration. There were 11 of us ranging in ages from 8 to 72. The kids menus not only had great options but also came with a little crafty toy called wiki sticks that kept them entertained the whole evening. What a treat for the adults! Our server Jack was helpful and attentive and gave us great descriptions of the menu options that made ordering a breeze. My pork chop was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. My brother-in-law said the beer Jack recommended was perfect. After dinner he brought out dessert & champagne for my parents. The next time we are in the area we would love to dine here again!

    This was my second visit to Ten22. As with the first visit, I asked for a four course "chef's choice" menu. Although it was last minute, the staff sprung into action and had it set up as though my reservation had been made a week before. I sat at the Chef's table and watched the kitchen staff prepare dinner. Starting with the Iberico cheese and charcuterie plate, the dinner was off to a great start. Heirloom tomatoes were in season and paired with fresh Buratta and a pesto puree, they were delicious. The star of the show was a braised lamb, Osso Bucco style with a Moroccan flair consisting of chorizo and peppers. It was beautifully presented with a rich sauce. Dessert was a seasonal peach bread pudding. Wine pairings were spot on!

    We enjoyed Sunday lunch with a large party of international visitors. Some in our group had never been to the US before and they had lots of questions. Some had special dietary requirements. Our server was very kind, understanding and patient. He went out of his way to confirm the contents of some of the dishes with the chef and offered alternative preparations for those who couldn't eat them as listed on the menu. The food was very good and the atmosphere was pleasant. It was a long and leisurely lunch, but we were not rushed. The hostess was very accommodating and friendly. She made our guests feel comfortable and welcome. Ten22 was a very nice surprise in the midst of otherwise touristy Old Sacramento.

    Dined on 8/22/2014
    The only item that was delicious was the mango bread pudding, everything else was very mediocre. The falvors were very normal something I can cook at home. My duck was raw and I sent it back and I was shocked when the same piece of duck was sent back to me, normally you get a new dish when you send somehting back that was wrong. The leather in one of the seats was torn, the floor under the table was very sticky. My son spilled his water and when the busboy came to clean it up he left my side of the table all wet. This are not biggies when you are paying $9.99 for something that is not even out of the ordinary BUT when you pay $33.00 for it these issues become a problem.

    I ordered Crispy Duck and Kale. Gust of wind lifted roasted kale depositing balsamic vinegar on my white jacket. Duck not crispy and cooked past medium rare. Skin was still attached, fat not rendered. Got a mouthful of rubbery skin. Kale was burnt. Entree returned to me now medium well and fat still not rendered or crispy. Still rubbery. No service for an hour, and uneaten entree sat in front of me. Had to flag down server. Too late to order another entree, so no dinner for me. No apology from manager after second try. Surprised to get a bill for my drink and salad, no comp. Have had crispy duck several times before, no rubbery skin. Entree priced at $28 dollars, surprised no quality check before being delivered to me (twice).

    This restaurant has a great vibe but fell short in quality. Expensive but lacked flavor. Steak was so tough I could hardly cut it. I get the esoteric wine list but give me a couple of wines I know to consider. For the money just a big disappointment. Step up the flavor and add a little salt.

    After being recommended by friends we decided to try. Very disappointed. First, waitress was a real ChattyCathy TMI. She forgot to place our appetizer order, so it showed up with our main course. Slopped drinks as they were delivered. Food was excessively salty, both entree's. We used valet to park, paid on dinner tab, but did not give us separate receipt that was required by valet service, who actually asked me to go back in and gat one. Music from what I believe was separate seating area had different music, so it was like listening to two radio stations at once. Don't plan to return

    Went on a Saturday night. Not crowded. Our server semed to be having an off night and made us feel like we were wasting his time. My husband had the sea bass, he enjoyed it. He had beer with his meal and felt like it would have been better if served in a chilled glass. I had the flank steak medium rare , with green beans and potatoes. It was a good portion. I would order it again. We tried the "banana split" dessert. It had chocolate, strawberry and vanilla mousse with banana cake. The best one definately the vanilla, the other two didn't taste that great. I spoke to an assistant manager regarding some of my concerns regarding the service. He was gracious and professional. It may be awhile before I return, if ever.

    As a family we were celebrating my mom's birthday. Right from the get-go she was welcomed warmly and wished a happy birthday by the hostess. We have dietary constraints in our family, which were easlily accommodated. The food was good and was served in a timely manner. We are members of a Napa Valley wine club and were able to find an excellent wine on the list that is no longer available to even wine club members. My husband was delighted. It was a lovely evening in a very comfortable atmosphere.

    Visiting Old Sacramento on a budget and you don’t want to “short change” the experience? Then Ten22 would be an excellent choice. My wife and my parents were going to be in Old Sacramento during the afternoon, just after lunch and just before dinner. This sometimes limits the restaurant choices since most restaurants open at 5pm for dinner. We didn't want to spend too much, yet we wanted to enjoy an early sit-down dinner at a full service restaurant with good food and spirits. I can tell you that Tenn22 fit the plan to a “T”. Good selection of microbrewed beers, 28 on-tap, and a decent wine list. Food was well prepared, good presentation, healthy portions and it all tasted nice. Service was friendly, a little slow, but friendly!

    We waited almost 30 minutes for anyone to ask us about drinks. Finally we (five of us) pursued it and were told there was a mix up. No waiter was assigned so we were picked up by a very helpful person. Everything was slow. Thank goodness for the comfortable setting and the companionship. When we ordered dessert it took about 20 minutes for the bread pudding to arrive; one shared order. Again saved by the quality of the food. We would definitely return but would be prepared for so-so service.

    We have been going to Ten22 for several years. We've always had very good experiences with the food and service. On our last visit, we noticed that the changes to the menu over the last several years have changed the dining experience. The menu (dinner entrees) is less accessible and lacks some of the more basic choices that used to be on it and provided the less adventurous with options (like their awesome burger). Overall, we thought there was a lack of entree options to choose from. Our dinner was disappointing this time (took forever and then one entree was undercooked) but we intend to give it another shot, as they have a great patio, good service, excellent wine list, and a history of great food. Great for groups on the patio.

    We took guests from out of town here for a midweek dinner to see Old Sac. We ate inside in a quiet booth. Beautiful restaurant. I ordered the price fixed menu for a reasonable $25, which happened to be sea bass. (It also came with a salad and sorbet, which turned into ice cream.) It was good on the outside edges, but a bit mealy towards the middle. My husband enjoyed the lamb entree, and the 2 guests had pizza. We had an appetizer, 5 beers, and desserts. The service was uneven at times, but very good on filling the water. It took some time for the food to appear, but that was fine. It's not fast food here. We could talk and hear each other, perhaps because it wasn't busy. That was a real bonus. The tab came to $160 before tip.

    Ten22 is consistently a standout restaurant for Sacramento, with a great menu of fresh local choices, great service, and lovely ambience indoors and out. I brought 3 friends there for lunch, and they were also impressed with all of the above. One person in our party had "lots of severe food allergies" and the wait-staff was extremely attentive and accommodating, both in helping her make safe choices and in adding specific instructions for the kitchen. She even checked back in with this guest a couple of times to make sure all was well, in good humor. We also enjoyed a warm welcome from owner, Terry Harvego. Thanks Ten 22!!

    I loved the interior of this restaurant, great lighting and interesting decor. The menu is a bit confusing as it doesn't exactly describe the dishes or preparation. I had a great starter of burrata, tomato, basil and balsamic vinegar. I chose the pork chop for my main and it was cooked to perfection but really didn't have much pork taste. I didn't care for the side dishes or the sauce which didn't really complement the pork chop. My husband had the duck and loved it. If I lived in the Sacramento area I probably would go back again.
