    The restaurant has a spacious feel to it. It is pretty, quiet, relaxing... A perfect place to meet up with old friends and be able to visit in a calm and quiet environment. The service was perfect and very friendly. We stayed at our table for four hours (in fact, ended up having both breakfast and lunch), and were never made to feel that we needed to rush. We had several servers and they were all gracious and efficient. There were many tables filled with business people and I got the feeling that it could easily be a very popular place for business lunches as the tables were well spaced and it was easy to carry on conversations and not feel crowded. The food was also quite good and our meals were prepared just as ordered.

    Over the past 25 years, I have dined in the Sacramento Hyatt resturants. As Chief of Staff for former Assembly Speaker Doris Allen, eating at the Hyatt was often and always great. The food, setting and staff have always been excellant. Our lunch Monday was no exception. We all look forward to visiting your facilities again in the future.

    Limited menu, service is hit or miss. Orders are consistently incorrect, this visit, no bread, was asked halfway through the meal if we wanted any. Grandsons cheeseburger had no cheese, they forgot. The bar is much better, better menu, better service. We only return for lunch when we go to the theater, it's convenient.

    Vines menu features local grown food where ever possible. The choices are adequate and every one I've tried is tasty. The service is friendly and professional. The prices are completive with hotel restaurants. If I reserve a table it is always waiting for me at the time I set. I have made Vines the spot for brunch before the theater/musicals.

Daughter's coffee cup was not clean and the server apologized and seemed embarrassed but we all made the best of it. Wife and I breakfast here a few times a year. What a treat! You must go.

    We have brunch/lunch at Vines before the theater/musical/opera next door regularly. We find the Vines a perfect spot for a meal. The menu is chock full of tasty farm-to-table items. The service is friendly and competent. Reservations are not always necessary, but we make them because we like to be sure we have a window table looking out at the patio. The cost is what large hotel restaurants charge, i.e. pricy compared to a local cafe, but we enjoy the total experience here. We suggest trying Vines to see if you enjoy a meal here too.

    The Vines is well located near the theater, its luncheon menu has choices that will suit most anyone, the service is friendly and professional, we find the food tasty, and the prices fit a Hyatt Hotel. We enjoy lunch here regularly before the theater and have always found our reservation ready, the staff friendly and professional, and the lunch enjoyable. We will return again.

    The Vines is a good place for brunch or lunch before the concert or musical. The menu has tasty things and there is a good breakfast buffet too. The cost is what's expected at a major hotel. The service is acceptable. The staff is friendly. It is a popular place for the before theater folks, like us.

    The Vines has become a pleasant place for our lunch before the program at the civic theater. We've made it our "local" for this occasion. Using Open Table for reservations we've always had a place by the windows so we can enjoy the outdoor view. The staff is professional and helpful. The menu is just right for a lunch, and if breakfast is desired the buffet is open too. We've not tried that, but from looking at the offerings we think a breakfast fan would not feel disappointed. The food is good tasting and nicely presented. The noise level is moderate, a conversation can be carried on. Prices are "usual" for this type of downtown hotel eating spot. We recommend it.

    Did you know you can get a custom made Omelette at Vines for Brunch? Neither did we until halfway through our meal. It took 10 minutes for the Server to visit our table to introduce herself. After about 5 minutes, and no visit from a server, we decided to get up and get the buffet. It wasn't busy, so I don't beleive staffing was an issue. When our server did finally arrive to welcome us, and inform us about the omelettes, we were already working our way through our buffet items. It really would have been nice to know that we could get an omelatte prior to filling your plate with other items. The service staff, although pleasant, was less than what we expected for a Hyatt Property.

    I chose Vines for a business meeeting on July 17, 2013. My reservation was just too easy to make through OpenTable online.My initial reservation was for 2 people but unexpectedly expanded to 5. The staff were more than accomodating in locating seating for my expanded party. I was also immediately pleased with the open and airy ambience with this restaurant. To my surprise, my entire group frequents Vines on a ragular basis (especially for their delicious breakfast and desserts from what I am told) so this pick was an immediate success. I ordered the Spicy Beef Wrap which was not as spicy as I expected but the vegetables were very fresh. I really liked the the anchiovy vinegarette dressing and requested an extra side of it.

    We had lunch last Sunday before the theater. Our reserved table by the window was ready, the service was polite and professional. Our lunch was delicious: my wife had the trout entree with salad; she said it was excellent, I had the Angus Hamburger and fries and both were tasty. Sitting by the windows is quieter than at the back of the room, but back is better for groups and probably for people with children. There is outdoor seating in summer, and we saw people enjoying their lunch outside sitting under umbrellaed tables. We recommend fines.

    We like Vines for its bright cheery dining room, the good tasting luncheon or breakfast offerings, the very good service, and the location close to the civic theater. The prices are what we've come to expect at a nice restaurant in a name hotel. Lunch for two for us was $40. We could have spent less or more.

    As usual, we had a nice dinner prior to attending a play at the Sacramento Musical Theatre. We feel special when we walk in and Jose recognizes us and takes us to our table. It's the perfect place for a nice quiet dinner before the show which is why we like to dine there; and, of course, the food is always great. We like the convenience of parking downstairs, too!

    My husband thoroughly enjoyed their brunch buffet, which included blintzes that were so delicious! I ordered the Dungenous Crab Eggs Benedict which was good but not as good as my husband's brunch. We were greeted very nicely, and seated promptly. I would go to the Vines for Sunday brunch again and would recommend it to others.

    Good food at a reasonable price for the lunch buffet. We've eaten here before and there was one change we didn't like. Bread rolls used to be available on the buffet table and are no longer offered. Now you must ask the server to bring bread which is a focaccia style and not the rolls previously offered.

    My significant other and I attended Easter Brunch and it proved to be the Perfect place for a Special Occasion. The Buffet had enough variety to satisfy both of us (the ham was one of the best I've ever eaten!) with both an omelet and pasta bar, plenty of fresh fruit and scrumptous desserts, we had a hard time prying ourselves away to attend other commitments. The two musicians were a wonderful addition to a special day. At $49.95/person (not including tax and tip)Vines is a little expensive for an ordinary Sunday, but for a Special Event it's well worth the money, just be sure to check the actual price to avoid an unpleasant surprise.
