Alexia, our waitress, was the highlight of our dinner. She was very attentive and helpful.

You should NOT depend on their website for the menu. We were expecting to food from the website menu only to be told that the website menu was outdated. The website menu was one of the reasons we picked this restaurant.

Nice interior, very quiet, we enjoyed our burgers, good wine specials, and the waiter very kindly split the bill for business expensing.

Took Mom for Valentine's Day dinner. Our first time there loved the ambience dark walls with paintings of music legends like Prince, james brown and photos of Sacramento landmarks. We were seated at a booth that was a bit off, seats were pretty low with respect to the table but comfortable nonetheless. James our waiter immediately greeted us. Throughout night he was attentive without being a hovercraft. We heard the portions were big and both wanted the blue cheese steak so we asked to split. We ordered 2 salads that were not on the menu they were simple but fresh and good. The steak was delicious the chef separated it for us in the back which was nice. We had plenty to eat and the steak was a perfect medium rare. Very glad we choose this place for our night out

Prompt service. Friendly and professional staff. Food was cooked to order. No complaints. Will return if in the neighborhood.

A friend and I came to lunch mid-week. The service was excellent. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. The food came quickly. I had the salad with skirt steak. Overall excellent. The steak was cooked to medium rare and very flavorful (although quite tough). My friend had fish and chips which he pronounced excellent.

Good prices and variety. I would come back to try other items on the menu.

I didn't have them as I was having a salad, but the $2 sides sounded fun. Where else can you get strawberries as a side for $2?

Food was fine; middle-of-the-road. Not poor enough to complain about, but not good enough for a return visit.

The restaurant was virtually empty for a Saturday night, although we were there somewhat early, 6:00 pm. We assumed this might also be due to the restaurant location which is a bit out of the way.

What was also troubling was the notice we spotted in our playbill at Community Center that Blue Prynt is a "restaurant partner" which provides a 10% price reduction. Our server knew we had theater tickets, was efficient and professional, but NEVER mentioned this.

The food was good, not exceptional. Service, on the other hand, was very good! Our waiter, who I believe was also the bartender, checked on us often and was very personal. The wine list was limited but I was able to find a nice glass of Cab (Hess I believe it was) to go with my steak. I would go back for drinks or a very casual meal, lunch more likely than dinner. Overall a good experience and I will gie it another try in the future.

Nice server. Fun artwork on the walls.
Place was pretty run down. Food was so-so. I sent my dish back (oso buco) because it wasn't hot. They have me another entire dish (maybe they have to do that) but it was still not hot. I think they just poured hot gravy on top. Good brussel sprouts. My husband liked his steak although it was overcooked. He'd ordered prime rib but was told they were out. (I found it odd that a nearby table which was seated after is was able to order and receive prime rib. ) We won't be back.

Service was good, but I was very disappointed to find out that I could only get well-done prime rib. Very surprised that at 5pm, the only prime rib available was well-done. Not sure that I would return, as too many other choices for dining in midtown.

Our server made the experience-- he came in and checked in on us often and made great suggestions. The Dine Downtown menu was simple but perfect for what we were looking for-- nothing too crazy, but just right. Food was tasty. I wasn't a fan of the wild rice, but everything else was good.

Visited the Tans Siberian Orchestra and after the show, trying to find a place to eat in downtown Sac was almost a joke. That is until I looked up this place. The Blue Prynt had a reservation within 15 minutes of me looking, which fared in our favor because we were hungry and also looking to wait out traffic. We walked the few blocks it was from the Golden 1 center to find it almost empty. We got our table immediately and looked at the menu. Now it wasn't a very extensive menu by any means but it worked for what we needed. I had the pesto fettuccine alfredo and it came out just pesto sauce. I know it stated pesto in the title of the dish but I was disappointed to not have a mix of alfredo sauce as well. It was mediocre food but served the purpose. We did not have any alcoholic drinks so we did not get to test out the bar. I do not think they were expecting a big crowd because I believed them to be understaffed with two people working. This showed when I asked for bread to go with my pasta and it took awhile to come. With all that said, for $80 for three of us and an instant seat, I can say that it is worth a second to last resort. All in All, not too bad in a pinch when every where else is packed.

Not what our party was looking for. Great for a solo dinner or drinks at the bar. Has that "hotel bar" feel.

This is a nice restaurant with good food. However, they may not look at their open table reservations too often. I have reservations for 6, which changed at the last minute to 4.

They still had the table setting for .

Gfriend and I were headed to the second night opening of new kings arena. We met and parked ate and walked 6 blocks to venue.

Staff is great and attentive. Food (we both had salads) was great. Happy hour wine was nice!

I have been here before and will continue to come. Great place for prior to theatre.
I am sure it is a fab happy hour place...I just don't have a happy hour bunch (or one) friends!
