We went because it was a short walk from convention center and had vegan offerings for my guest from Seattle. The wine was good. Server was excellent, kitchen a little slow for such a quiet night. Vegan burger was just described as ok. Fries so so. I had the CG burger and enjoyed fresh bun, tasty meat, tomatoe, was green and lettuce limp. My fries were great.
but salad was lacking in crispness. Great oatmeal and raisin was very good. Coffees good.

Our group went for 'Dinner and a Drag Show,' and had a fantastic time. In the past we've had amazing meals at Capitol Garage, and expect we will again, as we've dined here numerous times over the years - but the dinner specials we ordered (the steak, the portabella mushroom) were bland and lukewarm. The place was absolutely packed, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We'll most likely be back this Saturday for the show.

It was actually a good lay back lunch. The wine was nonexistent but they have a full bar. Bloodies were excellent. Place is clean, menu was interesting sandwiches, tacos, hamburgers etc. The food was good, I had shrimp tacos, my friend had a burrito. The biggest burrito I've seen and was told it was good. Very inexpensive.

Was there on a Saturday night. The place was extremely busy, and there appeared to be only one server. It took over an hour to get our food, which we then had to wolf down, as we had tickets to the theatre. Not the server's fault that they were understaffed, but we also had to ask several times for water and our drinks.

Also, their wine list sucks.

Nice vegetarian options. Good bar. You can find unpretentious but good food if you're gluten free, veg, vegan, keto, or just a regular person.

Enjoyed the meal but it was so noisy that conversation with my wife was almost impossible.

Never had tried The Capitol Garage despite driving by it for 20+ years when traveling thru downtown Sac. Everything was nice from the funky decor to the pleasant service. The only downside was that it took 60 minutes from entering to the arrival of our brunch food. That seems that there was a glitch in the system somewhere as our orders were not that complicated (and we did not modify any dish from the standard menu). Will I go back- probably - but it may take another 20+ years.

Come for the beer, don’t bother with the food.

I generally don’t write reviews. A restaurant has to be either incredibly superb or a train wreck to get a few words out of me.
This trip yo the Garage left me thinking somebody should contact the NTSB.

This was my third trip to the Garage in it’s current location. I used to frequent the place in the original location on L Street, and found it to be a decent place to grab a coffee and quick meal on the go.

In it’s newest iteration, it is smaller and has more of a pub vibe. My best advice is to look at the Garage as a place to snag a pint of beer or a glass of wine (they seemed to have a decent lineup of beer and wine), but it isn’t someplace I’d recommend as a restaurant.

My daughter and I each ordered NY Strip steaks, medium rare. Our meals arrived a good 30 minutes after we placed our orders, which wasn’t horrible - but the place wasn’t busy.

Our steaks were reasonably close to medium rare, but they hit the table cold. They were oddly prepared, literally perched atop what appeared to be a quarter pound mound of whipped, semi-warm, semi-solid (not melted or melting) garlic butter. I took a small bite of the butter mound, thinking it might be mashed potatoes. ... Nope! The others in our group also complained of cold food, and were underwhelmed by their selections.

Again, this was our third - and final - trip to the Garage. The first two were for weekend brunch. These visits were more about service issues (forgotten & messed up orders) than funked-up food.

Never again.

First time here for Brunch. Although a bit “chilly” we sat outside because of our doggie. The service - Amrita you are awesome! - and food quality were outstanding! Great spot for “people watching” and the value for price paid is great. Would definitely recommend to others - especially dog parents- they are VERY dog-friendly!! We’ll be back...

Worst restaurant experience. Arrived on time for a 6:15 reservation. At 6:40 our server finally arrived to take drink orders. Food was terrible, service was unacceptable. Never again.

Stopped in for a quick dinner before a show. Food is good, service also is good. The location is great and there is a discount for attending the theater.

Came in for dinner before theatre show. Service was slow...had to actually get our waiters attention to ask for a drink while we waited for the rest of our party. Food took quite a while to come out (place wasn't too busy)...check took forever (again, had to track down our waiter after we had been finished for about 10 min). Accidentally got the lunch menu first, which looked better than the dinner menu. I'm thinking this place must be much better for lunch. Dinner here seems like an afterthought.

Was New Years Day so not much Open so busy. Took hour to get our food. My husband loved his omelette. I had vanilla pancakes which to me tasted like buckwheat. Very Very Heavy!!
Not impressed with mine at all!
Will probably not go back.

We started off the new year w/ delicious vegan burritos for breakfast. Wishing they served them for dinner, too.
Love the many vegan options!!!

Best Benedict I have ever had; their spicy shrimp Benedict. The place overall needs a good cleaning though. Dusty/dirty :-(

Upon arriving, the "host", said " reservations only" to which I replied, Yes, 7:30 reservations. He said about 10 minutes was all we had to wait. Being Christmas day, we expected a little wait. Finally, we were seated at 8:20 but it was not a big deal. We ordered the Turkey dinner, but they were out by that time. So, give us each the pork roast. It was not a pork roast, but a boneless pork chop, which was very, very overcooked and tough to cut with only a butter knife. No real meat knives in the place. The flavor was not great either, bland, bland, bland.
But, the worst part was the mac and cheese side dish. It was awful !!! Generally, it was tasteless !!
Does anyone here actually taste the food they serve?? It was more like school cafeteria food, but less flavor.
Dinner cost us $72.00 and some change. This was just the price of the meal, with tea and coffee to drink. We truly felt duped afterwards. But, we always tip our server...
Needless to say, we will never dine here again...
