    Excellent experience. Sitting in the shade outside on the top deck watching the Sacramento River traffic while enjoying Brunch and Mimosas. Wait Staff were excellent. We'd come again.

    Food took over an hour and waiter forgot multiple items we ordered. They also didn’t seat us outside which I reserved bc they said it was for a big party. However there were plenty other tables and the party didn’t come til 2 hours later.

    We had wanted to eat here for about 30 years and finally found a good occasion while visiting Sacramento. Realistically at 4 PM on a Wednesday the restaurant was deserted and we almost had the dining room to ourselves. The service was great and it’s a beautiful old ship.  Everyone liked their entrée, the Caesar salad was great and the tiramisu was really great. Would definitely return.

    If you dine outside, which is very much worth it, it will be cooler in the evening than you think. The waitress had a fairly good size area and she handled it flawlessly. My halibut was a bit over cooked, but the views and ambiance made it still worth it. This is one of those places that you just must try for the experience. Romantic, cute and fun, but not rowdy.

    Thanks for visiting us and taking the time to post a review. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed our outdoor dining and amazing views, we agree the Delta King is a place everyone should experience.

    We really wanted to be able to say it was a delightful experience but it fell quite a bit short of our expectations. We were very disappointed to discover when we received our main courses that the descriptions of the accompaniments in the menu did not match those plated with our fish. The pecan crusted halibut had very little in the way of pecan crusting that we could identify and then the promised white bean cassoulet to accompany it was instead a very bland and lukewarm mushroom risotto. The mahi mahi that was to be accompanied by Himalayan red rice and fennel salad had mashed potatoes as the substitution and it was again not very warm although kudos for presenting the main courses on warmed plates. When we queried our server about the discrepancies in the menu, she said that the menus had not been updated – in this case, the server should have alerted us to the change in accompaniments if the restaurant chooses not to update its menus but really, they should have just updated their menus and not put the responsibility on the server to tell us. She seemed very overworked. We ordered the fritto misto as a starter which was excellent but when our main courses arrived, the starter plate remained in the middle of our table and was never cleared away until our mains were cleared. There was no support staff - the servers were doing double duty. When asked to confirm the “shortcakes with fresh strawberries and whipped cream’ listed on the menu was indeed what it stated, I was assured that this was definitely what I would receive. Instead, it was a white sponge cake layered with a cooked strawberry filling. No shortcakes in sight with what appeared to be one very large fresh strawberry in slices mounted in whipped cream added to the top of the cake. Most disappointing...

    Nice to enjoy a dinner out in Old Sacramento— but the food and service was disappointing at the Delta King. Pricey for the quality of what we were served. Ok, but mediocre. Our waitress was friendly and checked in with us, but service overall was slow. She apologized several times over the course of dinner for having to wait a long time for waters, then our wine order, and subsequent dishes. Just an OK experience.
