We went during "dine downtown" and had an amazing meal! Their Duck confit was superb! And the desserts were to die for!

Wonderful location adjacent to the Sacramento Community Theatre and a very convenient venue for dinner prior to seeing a performance. Service was excellent: timely and friendly, and they are prepared for the “theatre crowd”. Food is consistent and very good if not exceptional. The salmon with pesto sauce and the Petrole sole were both very tasty.

Had the rib eye perfectly rare with silky mash and a very good creamed spinich. Wife had the double pork chop with sautéed spinach. Very good service from our waiter who has waited on us on two previous occasions. Room gets loud at full capacity. Can’t beat the convenience for the theater! My “go to” restaurant when I want something different than Braisserie Capitale.

We dine here frequently and the service plus Valet Parking is a big plus. The Wagyu steak was excellent. The Patrale sole not so much, it was dry and lacked the soft flavor this fish usually has.
