Delta King - Pilothouse Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
The Pilothouse Restaurant was a pleasant surprise. I thought since it was in touristy Old Sacramento that the restaurant might be negatively impacted. This was NOT the case. The old steamship provides an excellent dining experience. Cocktails before dinner were served quickly and were very tasty. My wife had the evenings special, ribeye steak which was perfectly prepared, and I had their signature smoked pork chop with maple bacon chutney and it was superb. We will definitely remember the Pilothouse in our future visits to Sacramento.
I love the atmosphere of the Pilot House restaurant. What could be better than a Saturday Afternoon lunch overlooking the Sacramento River. The Hamburger I had was delicious. Perhaps it was extra busy due to Halloween traffic, but while the service was friendly but non existent. Two diet cokes were ordered and they were flat. The waitress took them away and did not charge for them but there was no follow up explanation such as we'll try to fix the machine or explaining there was nothing they could do. Once we were done eating our finished plates just sat on the table while we conducted our meeting and finally I asked for them to be cleared.
Staff need better training.
Celebrated my girlfriends birthday as it was a very special day for her. The window view was amazing with a beautiful view overlooking the river. The staff and waiter were professional and even had everything organized for my woman's birthday. I would highly recommend for a romantic date, and a birthday dinner.
Ambience was great, reminded me of eating in the dining car of a train with the white table cloths and the shape of the windows, while watching the water. Portions were ample, my husband really enjoyed the calamari. We will definitely return to try other entrees.
Fifth time. Good food, excellent bar & grill, magnificent setting on port side, cool breeze on river, courteous service, well appointed main dining room. Informal or business attire, centrally located for greater Sacramento area. Perfect for RZ with out of towners and multi-modal travellers.
Yet another successful birthday bash at the pilot house. Our party of five were greeted by the host promptly and then seated to a well appointed table. Our server took our drinks and appetizer order both arrived quickly along with fresh bread and oil and balsamic drip. All of the main dishes were excellent and large portions. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Tuesdays must be slow nights. Few patrons and fewer servers. Wait times to take order
15 minutes (glad we brought wine from the bar). To get dinner was another 25 minutes without the lemon chicken they told us would be 30 minutes! Two weekends earlier we had a good experience ordering lunch in the bar.
The Delta King Pilothouse was close to a perfect experience. The server was knowledgeable and this is kind of weird but I could really relate to him? It was quiet, which was great, but mostly empty. I really hope it was just an off night and that they receive enough business to keep the staff paid and the restaurant open, because it’s greet. My partner and I love staying on the Delta King as a date tradition, but we have never had dinner at the restaurant which I regret. She and I both got the fish of the day, a pan roasted California halibut, which was delicious.
Our waiter was very knowledgeable and the swordfish he recommended was to die for! He also found me the perfect wine to go with it. My husband's rib eye was cooked just the way he liked it and he savored every bite. Our reservation was at 8pm, so we almost had the place to ourselves, with a romantic table on river side. It was the perfect place to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary.
Decided to have an afternoon break at their bar on a 1898 stern wheeler while we visited Old Sacramento the day before our dinner reservation. Had excellent service, and seated above the river. We were so impressed we returned the next day to have lunch before our river cruise from a company next door. Returned for our dinner reservation, and wife and I had a window table, as requested in our OpenTable reservation. Did help to reserve for 6:00 pm since the place became filled soon thereafter. Still, was quiet, good food served in a timely manner, with excellent service.
There are several good restaurants along the river here, and if you want the quietest dining place, a little bit more upscale, visit the Pilothouse.
I celebrated my Birthday and friends treated me to dinner on the King. And at the Pilot House I felt like royalty. Immediately we were seated at a well appointed booth with a fantastic view of the river and surrounding cityscape. Our waitress was extremely pleasant and great at her job. She even paid for my Birthday dessert. So what's not to like about that I recommend this restaurant highly
