Wonderful service, and great selection on the menu
Always a favorite! The food, ambience and service is always exceptional! Love Artie and team of servers, the bartenders are always pouring the perfect mix. Great beef and seafood in Dawson’s, always fresh and cooked to perfection!
Food was delicious! Had a bottle of red wine TWOsquare, AMAZING!
Although Andrew was trying I felt service was just a bit off, for example, a little too long to take our order, also the assumption was made that the oysters would b a meal and they were only meant to b an appetizer, Andrew forgot about my soda, the ribeye was good but not spectacular, the cook on the ribeye was perfect, I don’t know if your baked poucomes with chives but I didn’t notice any. What happened to the mouse bouche, we have had this in the past and we noticed this was not forthcoming.
Andrew was nice and he endeavored to do what he could. No doubt he is a great server
My steak was undercooked in the middle. They forgot we were celebrating a birthday, and I put it in my reservation. We couldn’t get a booth, even though I requested one, and they were empty. My creamed spinach was not hot, and the cream was watery.
The whipped potatoes were lukewarm.
Not sure if our server was having a bad day. Too many customers or what was going on... we did not get service for a while and then when he came he was brisk and rude. One of our drinks was constantly water instead of an actual drink. Food was mediocre and frankly the steak looked like it was not one piece of meat rather sad.
This will not be a repeat experience for me.
Food was exceptional as well as 0ur amazing server! She went above and beyond!
Amazing Food, Great Drinks, with a little extra kick, always appreciated. Great Atmosphere for a Special Date Night!!!
Your choices were varied enough for a diverse crowd. Your creme brulee dessert was outstanding. Wait staff was not overly attentive and the food came out rather quickly.
Beet salad came with with lots of arugula. We said no greens are mentioned on menu. When questioned the waitress was emphatic that it was mentioned. We did not go further but did not eat salad though checking menu when we got home showed NO greens. Disappointing.
We avail ourselves for excellent food, service, and validated parking. It is very convenient to have a leisurely dinner, then walk to the Community Center next door to attend a concert.
The restaurant was crowded and noisy, but that's how it is in a hotel across the street from the state capitol. I was disappointed with the pricing, which was listed as only two $ but was definitely comparable to Morton's, which was listed with 4 $$. My wife and I had the special (Chilean sea bass) and the ribeye (they had "just run out" of the prime rib (really? At 7:30 on a Friday night?) And no alcohol, no dessert, but our meal was $128. Way too high. The staff were excellent, the food was very high quality, it was just the price that was completely out of proportion.
Jenn, our server, was gracious and made the whole meal a delight.
The Cioppino was amazing. The waitstaff always makes one feel special.
The waiter was the best we have ever had
Our dining experience began with a complimentary olive tapenade that set the tone for the deliciousness yet to come. It was the best I've ever had. The chef had also prepared a delicious bruschetta (also complimentary). Knowing we were interested in the prime rib steak our waiter provided a tasting of a wine that he recommended for our steaks.The wines are $70 and up, so tasting a wine knowing your purchase will be the ultimate compliment to your meal is such a great perk. We weren't sure which sauce we would like to enhance our steak so our waiter brought us two sauces on the side that we had been considering. Our steaks were perfectly cooked and high quality...worth the $40+ dollars. (I highly recommend the red wine reduction...wow!)The service was impeccable throughout the evening...including the waitstaff that assisted the waiter. We were presented with a dessert menu, however like many meals we were completely full (I took half of my prime rib home for a second meal). I told the waiter that if there would have been some ice cream offered...I would have indulged because there's always room for Ice cream. So the next thing I know there's complimentary ice cream for me... and my husband. I had planned that the cost of our meals would most likely fall around $300 for the two of us and I was spot on (including a generous tip). My husband and I made a pact to return at least once a year because our entire experience was outstanding. I cannot recall ever getting such high quality food and service like this anywhere else. There are other restaurants in Sacramento with excellent food and service, however Dawson's went above and beyond. And finally, the Maitre d'hotel made sure to check every table to assure everyone was completely satisfied. This is truly the place to go for a special occasion or even if you just want to be pampered for an evening...because you know you deserve it and you are guaranteed to have an outstanding experience.
The service of the waiter was subpar at best. He was very dry and distant . He also brought me the wrong enhancer. I ordered Jumbo Scallops and instead received Jumbo Shrimp. Even the manager told him to get the order right. If it wasn’t for the outstanding service of the manager, we would’ve had been satisfied eating elsewhere.
They don’t know how to properly cook steak, which is odd for a steakhouse. They cooked medium well at rare and medium to inedible rare.
Celebrated Valentine’s Day
Food was very good; had rib eye and the ice lettuce salad was very unique and tasty, fresh
Decor showed good lighting nad nice romantic decor
Good to see the teamwork, the Maitre d also helped w. Clearing the tables etc..
Downtown Sacramento location, can have pre-show dinner
Dawson’s was probably one of the best dining experiences I’ve had! Our server Artie is the epitome of class and a superb server. The recommendations he made for us did not disappoint and the food was amazing! We were in town for a show and I promise the next time I travel to Sacramento I will certainly return to Dawson’s!
Food was uneven. Oyster were pre-seasoned (strange) and crab cakes ordinary. One steak, grass fed tenderloin, was excellent but other, requested Med-well was tough. Great wine selection and very attentive service. Ambiance is basic - looks like an old steakhouse.
The food was excellent and we were very well taken care of by Jenn.
We always enjoy sitting in Artie’s section. He makes the experience exceptional.
Great food and service
Service was good, not great. Wish I knew about the soufflés (for dessert) so I could have ordered in advance, not at the time my meal was over.
The quality of food was good enough, service and ambiance was extremely lacking. For the price there is much better to be had elsewhere.
I took my grandson to dinner at the last minute. He thoroughly enjoyed his meal.
Both the service and the cuisine were impeccable. Wait staff was personable, informative and overall pleasant to interact with.
Food was ok. Seabass from dine downtown was bland. Portions were small.
The food was great but I feel that the service was rushed.
Decided to dine at Dawson for dinner. The food lacked flavor in my opinion. The service however was exceptional.
Service was superb. Food was delicious. Came in for dine downtown. Entree portions could have been bigger. Desserts were a little too sweet. The pavlova was pure sugar. No moscato by the glass though. Would probably come here for a special occasion next time.
Absolutely delicious! Went for the dine downtown event and was not disappointed! The pork belly and the steak was to die for. Amazing experience and will be back again.
The food was excellent -- a wide variety of local items.
The locally-sourced Onion Soup was amazing...
The local filet was so tender, you could cut it with a knife.
The lobster mac-and-cheese was just icing on the cake after all that...
Definitely would recommend, particularly for a nice business dinner.
My husband and I went for Dine Downtown and had a memorable experience. We were greeted by Monique and served by Lex. Both wonderful women that always ensured we were taken care of. Amazing food by the Chef and a great experience at this restaurant.
Our foursome had a Dine Downtown specials. We also had the wine pairings. We all enjoyed the dinner and wines. What a treat!
Great food for the most part. Really liked the pork belly and the skirt steak - fish was not quite as flavorful. Desserts were excellent.
We came here for the Dine Downtown menu and loved everything. We ordered the Deviled Eggs off the DD menu but the server forgot them (we were too full anyway.) She made up by taking 10% off the bill without being asked! Great food, great service. Steak and striped bass cooked to perfection.
The meals were excellent and the service was even better. All of the staff were very attentive to our every need from making sure we understood market pricing to clearing the table after each course to reading our minds on desserts.
Thanks to everyone at Dawsons for making this a memorable evening with my future in-laws and a special thanks to our waiter Chris for his outstanding service!
The food was excellent and our waiter, Arby, was most attentive without being intrusive. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Dawson's.
