    This has been my girlfriend and my third time at Allora and it never disappoints. The menu was changed slightly from the last time we were there but nothing was left in confusion. They gave us a little time to look through everything and it was explained perfectly. The food is an absolute experience and everything tastes amazing. We will be back. This might be our favorite restaurant.

    Thinking about the 'finer things in life' Allora would be at the top of my list. Everything was impeccable, from the service to the presentation of each dish to the extensive wine list. The quality of the food is especially noteworthy. For example, the duck confit had a perfect tender texture and taste that was memorable. And very filling (I've had friends say the portions were small, not true). The only drawback is that they are inflexible--no substitutions, no sharing (there is a steep cost), and no wine brought in from any winery listed on their 29-page wine list. And of course, the cost. Two 4-course dinners plus wine pairing including 20% gratuity (plus 3% for the kitchen) was $562.

    We had a wonderful time. The food was stellar, but the service was absolutely a standout. Front staff and servers were very professional but also friendly and fun. We liked that they asked us about allergies/preferences in advance. Cocktails were innovative and special; and I tried a new-to-me lovely Greek red dessert wine. The seafood pasta was a star, as was the sous vide short rib. I can't think of anything that was even a little bit off, and I'm usually sort of judgy about food. Especially expensive food!

    Most dishes were outstanding! And the personalized touch for our anniversary was lovely The quail appetizer was more breading than quail. My scallops were a tad too rare despite best efforts on the second attempt. We enjoy the creativity of the chef and appreciate the staff's commitment to fine dining which is lacking in most other Sacramento restaurants.

    A truly wonderful dining experience. The food was fresh, innovative without being overly sauced or fussy, and well presented. Kudos in particular to the octopus with gnocchi and the scallops. The service matched the food. We were greeted warmly and ordered drinks followed by a very well informed description of the menu. After that everything sounded delicious. We also ordered the wine pairing and these came in the proper fashion, not just four glasses of wine but an explanation of what the wine was its character and why it was selected to be paired with that dish. Clearly a lot of thought went into this. The entire staff was attentive without being intrusive. Add to that the pleasant surroundings and it was a most enjoyable evening. We will definitely return.

    Outstanding food and service. For such an outstanding restaurant, I thought the surroundings, the ambience, was sort of plain - is that the right word ? Might have expected at least a linen tablecloth ? From observing the garden room I think when warmer would be the place to be in that regard. This is more of an observation than a criticism; we had a wonderful time and I have already been recommending Allora to several friends. Another small suggestion would be to have available a glass of Brunello de Montalcino in the glass of wine segment

    The food at Allora is special, the dishes are so creative, unique and delicious, that the dining experience is in another stratosphere! Adding to the pleasure of the meal is the attentive service and spectacular wine selections. The menu is in courses and the portions are perfectly sized to choose four dishes and a dessert. While it’s difficult to name a favorite, I can’t get past the Polpo and Lobster fettuccine. My husband also had the short rib, which melts in your mouth, and I love the black cod. Extraordinary meal!

    We came back after a few years hoping for a better experience. We were disappointed. The service was not great and the food was okay. I’d be fine with this except it was over $600 (2 tasting menus, 2 wine pairings, and 2 cocktails). For that price it should be amazing food and the wine should add to the dish. Unfortunate as we were hopeful.

    What a fantastic experience. We were greeted at the door by the sommelier and the host. We were taken to our table by the host and then almost immediately we had a server taking care of us. The service was amazing, well orchestrated to make sure the dinners were taken care at all time. The cocktails were elevated, some of the best I have had in Sac. We had the four course meal. All plates were amazing. All of them were flavorful, complex, plentiful, and visually appealing. We did the wine pairing, which was spot on. This was certainly an experience for all the senses. Dessert was amazing and the doughnuts were super soft and well balanced. The decor of the place is elegant. The patio area is super nice. I was scared about temperature but they have taken care of that so nice that it did not distract from the whole experience. Prices are high, but I think well justified given the experience. Also, we were there for a birthday celebration and they made the experience unique. Overall, a great restaurant with amazing food and excellent service.

    Allora was a perfect choice for our anniversary dinner. The staff is absolutely amazing, everyone was incredibly kind and friendly, everything was explained well and any and all questions answered. I chose to get the tai snapper, ravioli, sonoma duck, and spumoni courses. Everything was fantastic! If you like raw fish, or a sushi lover like me, definitely get the snapper. That might have been my favorite course. However, I truly loved everything. The portion sizes are perfect and everything is spaced out nicely. It is all so well thought out. You get a palate cleanser between courses and hot towels to wipe your hands. The menus are personalized and yours to keep, and we got a complimentary glass of prosecco. Maybe it’s obvious that (as younger parents) we rarely make it to a nice date night, and this is definitely one of the nicer restaurants we have been too, but we were truly impressed and enjoyed our whole experience!

    What an elegant and welcoming experience! Everything we had was divine, and the service was what one would expect from a 3 star Michelin restaurant. We were so happy with the entire menu, but a surprise winner is the insalata rossa; it is pleasantly piquant and refreshing with an exquisite dressing. Taryn, our server/sommelier confided that it was one of her favorites on the menu, and I am in complete agreement. Chef Derek is incredibly creative without being too precious, and his food is unique and delectable to all the senses. This is the place to celebrate a special occasion in Sacramento.
