Thank you Craig for ALWAYS taking care of us 🎉🎉🎉
We celebrated my birthday and really enjoyed your restaurant. Our server, Nick, couldn’t have been more agreeable and provided good information about the serving sizes. We really liked him.
Wonderful place to have a quiet meal, excellent service and good portion sizes. Desserts are quite large, enough to share for sure. We were there for Thanksgiving dinner and it was perfect. Will definitely be back for Christmas eve if that's an option.
Theresa and Jennifer were awesome. Good was great. First time I have ever went out for thanksgiving. The meal was yummy.
Outstanding. Service is top notch. I was chilly and put my coat over my shoulders and a few minutes later the manager came over to inquire whether we were comfortable. She turned the heat up as she thought it was also a little chilly. Hubby had fish tacos and I had the mia salad. Both just right. They have a very nice cocktail bar but unfortunately no draft beer and a limited can and bottle selection. Wine selections were plenty and in all ranges. We went on thanksgiving for lunch and it was packed but it didn’t really feel like it. I am so happy to have a new favorite in the neighborhood. We’ll done Bennett’s!
Our server was very engaging and timely. I had to fish and spinach and itwas excellent. We shared the carrot cake for dessert and it was a bit dry.
Very nice restaurant, well thought out, great service, a good choice of entrees. Well cooked to order and a good ambiance. I've been there a number of times and have tried a number of their offerings and have never been disappointed. Highly recommended.
Great spot for a birthday celebration. They set up a special table for 8. Everyone was really happy with the entrees. Our short rib was delicious. The shrimp appetizer was also very good. Wait staff were very accommodating bringing extra focaccia with the appetizer and when it was time to order wine (our 3 bottles we brought ran out pretty quickly!) they offered the Silver Oak Napa Valley, which wasn't on the menu and is far superior to the Alexander Valley Silver Oak. Would happily return and will do so often!
Would not return. Mediocre food. Terrible service. Super loud
Not a great experience - have been to Bennett’s multiple time. Didn’t inform us about specials, mahi-mahi tacos were flavorless and missing ingredients. One in our party ordered the NY steak, server didn’t ask how it should be cooked, they added a $10 charge to slice the steak which we were not informed about nor asked to be done. Charged us for the wrong scotch. Water was not refilled. They seated a large table behind us and blocking access and not maintaining social distancing. I could say more but this is enough.
Best dining experience we’ve had in a long time. Mahi tacos were perfectly seasoned and juicy and the chicken tortilla soup was loaded with chicken and equally seasoned just right. If you have room for dessert, ask for 2 spoons and order the apple crisp. Our server was super friendly and professional. Looking forward to our next visit!
Excellent food and service. I'd gladly have another dinner party there.
Love Bennett's! This was my first visit to the Sacramento location. Really like the changes made to update and lighten the interior. Very welcoming. Also like the plexiglass between the booths. The menu was the same as the Roseville location, which made me very happy as I was able to enjoy the Mia Salad, which is amazing. Everyone wiped their plates clean of their fish tacos and Asian Noodle Salad. Service was excellent. Plenty of water and iced tea refills. Attentive, but not hovering. Looking forward to returning soon!
Great evening but very loud. A table of four behind us was very noisy snd got louder as the evening continued. We had to repeat much of our conversations.
The steak and bacon tacos were delicious as well as the side of beans. The orange marmalade martini was a perfect cocktail to have with brunch. I loved the atmosphere of the restaurant though it was pretty loud when we first arrived and the restaurant was packed. But I would definitely visit again!
Loved our server, Cody. Manager came over to say hello. Nice touch. Wonderful birthday brunch. We will definitely recommend.
Food and atmosphere where amazing last night, the app was out fast, drinks were very well made, food quality was excellent, Highly recommend this place nothing to complain about!!!
This was my second time to Bennetts. The first time I went I found a chicken bone in my enchilada. I decided to give them a second try during this trip and ordered a well done hamburger. And yes, hamburgers should NEVER be rare. When it arrived, I purposely cut into the hamburger which was pink and not well done. My recommendation to Bennetts is that if your meals are priced like a 4 star restaurant, they really need to provide a 4 star meal. They could’ve made my family seriously ill during both of these visits.
I had the lasagna and it was over cooked and tough, not doubt the worst lasagna
I have ever had.
Soup and enchiladas were temp warm
The fish tasted like it came out of a microwave, not tender or flaky or flavorful. The Top Shelf Margarita was watered down.
Meeting friends from out of town
pleasant. good server, food could use less sauce and better seasoning.
The food was delicious, the service excellent. I thought the price was high, however, I know with the times, every restaurant has had to raise their prices. I will still go back.
Always consistent and great.
My beautiful Mama’s 84th birthday celebration 🎉💃🏽💐🎂🥂💕
Celebrating one daughter birthday and the others gymnastics competition. We just came together to enjoy each other and enjoy good food. The host and waitress was very friendly. The food was really. The only thing I would say about avocado toast is that there should have been a little seasoning like sea salt or something to complement the delicious salad that it can with. I love avocado plain but when I have avocado expect it to more flavorful. But overall it was loaded with avocado which was a plus plus. And everyone enjoyed their food as well.
Great food! Was a bit cold inside so bring a sweather
Grat meal and service.
Will go again! Loved the vibe here. Food and service was awesome
Tasty food and outstanding service. The menu is varied and has many items made by the chefs and not out of a can.
Good food and attentive service person. We were going to a show and food and drink were served in great time!
A late lunch that was most appreciated. Excellent service from start to finish. The attention to detail in the food offerings, as well as in both the quality and preparation, is excellent. You have matched the essence of Bandera and even brought it up.
We had a birthday celebration in the private room. It was all wonderful however there is no ventilation in the room. This May be asking too much but can a vent be put in the room for ventilation?!? Thank you for your consideration
This was my second dinner at Bennett's and It did not disappoint. Two couples agree the 'food and service' were very good. Shared lettuce wedge salad and a fine filet with asparagus, cooked perfectly, medium rare presented hot. There was no corkage fee for the two bottles of wine we brought. The menu is broad and offers something of interest for most anybody's interest and taste. Interestingly, there is an area with see-through plexiglass, a space with a large family table. This is an area where folks with children can dine without disturbing others. I have never seen this set up before and it seems like a great idea. I look forward to returning to Bennett's and highly recommend you give it a try.
Our waiter, Brandon provided excellent service. Almost like he was reading our minds! My wife thought the mahi mahi grilled tacos were the best she has ever eaten! I had the Filet Mignon / Lobster tail special. The filet was prepared perfectly and delicious. Unfortunately, the lobster tail was very ‘mushy’. I grew up in Boston and have consumed many “lobstahs” in my time. So I feel like I report with a strong level of expertise.
Overall, we had a wonderful experience and will go back again.
The food is really good, but the service is better. Prompt, friendly, and efficient.
Nice atmosphere, lovely service and staff. A wide variety of choices for food. Topped it off with the key lime pie which is the best!
The hostess was amazing made the night extra special and memorable.
