Everything was excellent except for when we sat at the bar. The bartender wasn’t friendly and acted like we were bothering him. We had a dinner reservation at 5:30 and arrived a little early and he barked, We don’t seat dining until 5:30. So we sat down at the bar for a drink and he barely looked at us then said, The taps need to be changed.

The food is consistently exceptional. I go for the steaks but look forward to the scallops as an addition.

People always make the difference in great restaurants and Jenn and Ardy, set a very high standard. Ask for them.

This is a definite spot for dinner while you’re in Sacramento.

Three of us visited on a weeknight evening right before Thanksgiving so The noise level was low. We each ordered prime rib which was perfectly cooked to our liking with great flavor. The service is impeccable. The waiters, waitresses and chefs are friendly, efficient and very good at their jobs. The side dishes are also cooked to perfection. You won’t be disappointed with a meal at Dawsons. We have visited Dawsons many times and hve never had a bad meal.

Steak was good, service was mediocre to put it mildly. Spent about $300 for 2 and did not get a higher end experience at the bar. Overall it's a mediocre place that is let down by the service.

The food was pretty good, but came out cold after waiting a long time. The orders for our 3 steaks got mixed up so we all ended up switching steaks part way through the meal. The service was slow, and not very attentive. It would have made a decent Claim Jumper caliber meal, but we paid a Morton’s price.

Great variety on the menu. Food delicious and beautifully presented. Atmosphere elegant. Service extraordinary. A little pricey but worth every penny. Definitely a place to go for a special occasion or whenever you want to enjoy a wonderful evening and feel pampered.

Service was good; however, food wasn’t. Had a problem with our appetizer, which was comped but ruined the meal from the start. Filet was undercooked but couldn’t send it back because we were running out of time (because it took so long). Just not a great experience at all

Great Restaurant. Food was delicious. We dined with our nephew's family that included a 2 1/2 year old and 1 month old. The server was especially attentive and to time to focus on the toddler. The rest of the staff were very accommodating. One of our very favorite restaurants.

Beautiful decor. Amazing food. Presentation was first class. Service was very thoughtful. We were there on a Sunday, which was a nice, quiet evening to relax, not be rushed and enjoy our time out. I was surprised there were not any well wishes for celebrating our 35th Wedding Anniversary when I distinctly noted that when booking through OpenTable. That was the one negative about the night.

Not a good experience last night. Plain ceasar salad, my "18 ounce" ,"bone in" ribeye was lucky to have been 12 oz.... with a tiny bone that had been cut in half. Wine was terrific as we brought our own bottle!! Best part of the meal was the bacon bits that came with my baked potato. Not worth the price.... not worth going back.

My wife and I enjoyed ourselves, but we are a little confused. We received the email invitation to the event, and we followed the internet instructions to make the reservations on Open Table. It gave us one starting time, 7:00 p.m., which was the dinner starting time, not the reception. Somehow, our reservation did not come through for the wine tasting. We were told that we should have put that we were reserving for the wine tasting in the comments, but I totally disagree. The link took us to Open Table to make the reservation, and there was only one time to reserve and that was the starting time for the event. We were seated at a table by ourselves instead of with a group, which was okay, but it was like we were punished for Dawson's and Open Table's error as we did nothing wrong. That was in poor taste.

Dawson's is a good bet when you have a reservation and are downtown Sacramento prior to an event. My wife and I shared a lettuce wedge, split a large baked potato. Filets were served medium-rare as requested and hot. Very good. Next time I'd skip the 'grass fed' and go with the alternative filet finished on corn. Less 'char' too. Shared chocolate cake and coffee completed the meal. This was a nice experience and we will return.

It was our anniversary and we were treated like Royalty! The Head Chef, Rudolpho perfectly cooked my wife's filet and my pork chop! And after we had eaten our limit, Rudolpho surprised us with a chocolate soufflé for our anniversary! (I guess we hadn't really reached our limit!)

The bread & salad we had were very good.
That’s the best that can be said. The service was slow. The rotating beer option was off. The steaks we ordered were cold to the touch. When we sent them back, they were returned barely warmer. The fries had been kept warm rather then changed & were therefore soggy. The baked potato was barely warm.
The manager was apologetic & offered to recook everything but by this stage we were beyond wanting the food.
The only recompense was that they did not charge us for the food/drink we had already consumed.

It was our first time at Dawson's steakhouse and we loved it . Our server was amazing i cant remember his name but had a accent and was older. He made sure everything was perfect. My steak was cooked perfectly medium well. And my desert was fabulous. I will reccomend this place to everyone. Definitely will come back soon
