    The Clayton club is a beautiful place with amazing views of the capital! We love it here, and the service is amazing! It’s definitely a hidden gem in the downtown Sacramento area!

    It was fine, way overpriced for what you get. Drinks were alright and the cheese plate was lack luster. Our server was solid, she made the experience.

    Clayton Club was my go-to place over the last year. Great vibe, service, cocktails, and food. But recent changes have been made, and not for the better. Very sad, but not sure when I'll return. Food menu has been cut to less than half, and much of it is uncooked (e.g. cheese plate for $18, charcuterie). Not much to make a meal of now; I had loved the tapas-style plates to make a meal and share vibe. Drink prices seem to have increased ($16); the cocktail (and mocktail) program is solid, but the extra bit of polish and class is gone (e.g. serving plastic straws with paper on them, like at McDonald's. For a $16 cocktail?). The wait staff I knew seem to have turned over. It had a perfect bit of clubby vibe without attirude; there used to be a line of people waiting at the door (it was pretty empty when we went). The furniture was moved around, overall not an improvement. I hope it gets its Mojo back. It does still have a great playlist of music.

    Had a reservation before a concert at Golden 1. Was met by the hostess that said there was no wait staff that night but feel free to line up at the bar . Overpriced cocktails and a very long wait for a cheese plate: it's not like they had to cook any food. By the time we got the small salad plate sized cheese plate we were late to the concert. The place has potential but it's not even close .

    The Clayton club is a nice upscale atmosphere with a beautiful outdoor patio. The inside is nice and cozy while it’s not overbearingly large. Great spot for date nights and small gatherings.

    Definitely not a fan of his place at all. I probably wouldn’t go back, but I’m not going to give it a zero stars. I feel like there’s a place for everyone. This place just wasn’t for me. The food was very lackluster to say the least, in the southern description it was underwhelming, the old fashions were terrible lol location was decent. However, review is directly in the building. If you sit outside, I have the ravens plays at three out of five, but wouldn’t recommend anybody else going here.

    I love coming to Clayton Club. It has become one of my favorite spots for girls night, dinner dates, and solo nights. The ambience is always great no matter the number of people there. The staff here is amazing and provides the best service. I would recommend getting drinks/food in early because sometimes there is only one waiter for a large section. Other than that everything about the Clayton Club is amazing and I will definitely continue to go here often.

    First time coming and definitely won’t be the last! I saw this place on Tik Tok and decided to take my girlfriend here for a date night and it was amazing! The drinks were 10/10 and atmosphere and service was 10/10! If you want a nice night out with a special someone or even just as friends, this is the place and also the outside patio is super nice as well as the inside bar area! My girlfriend and I loved it! We will be back!

    Had booked the fire pit weeks ago for today at 5:15PM, via Open Table. I even had communication with the restaurant about the reservation in advance wherein they acknowledged it. BE WARNED: We arrived and were told by the hostess that the fire pit was double-booked somehow (??) on Open Table and that the other party that had booked it was already seated there. So we ended up sitting at some tables pushed together. I asked the hostess if there'd be any accommodation for our inconvenience--she said she'd check with her manager and then we never saw or heard from her again. Pretty disappointing visit overall for a place that I really wanted everyone to like and enjoy.

    I was really disappointed that no one really cared we were there. We sat at the bar. The bartenders ignored us. We had to call them over when we needed a drink or food. A male was siting at the hostess station and was acting like he was at home making sounds (no manners) and was not professional. Everyone ( workers) were all chatting with each other. They need to make it about the customers, make us feel welcomed and that we are at a classy place for a fun experience.

    Decided to check out the Canyon Club before seeing our show at Safe Credit Union Center. We were warmly greeted by the hostess upon arrival, as well as any staff member that we crossed paths with. Our server Maddy was awesome! She gave great cocktail recommendations - the “Kill Bill” was a true winner! As for the food, we had the Oysters (fresh and creamy), shrimp ceviche (flavorful with bits of avocado!), and flatbread (gone in 60 seconds, or so it seemed). Overall, it was a great atmosphere with plenty of heat lamps, awesome drinks, perfect small plates!

    Nice lounge to pre-drink before an event in DOCO. The rooftop view is ok, the drinks and overall vibe are hip, and the service is great! It’s small and dark, and attracts an older, posh crowd. Overall, great 1st stop on the way to another bar/restaurant.

    Great ambiance, until a party of 10 showed up :-/ It’s new and they’ve got A LOT to work out. The bar was slammed and slow, and the food - well … great concepts but the quality of the ingredients and cooking needs improvement. I will wait awhile before I try again. Umm, some signage would be nice as well unless it’s intended to be a truly hidden hideout.

    It was pretty loud inside so I think I’ll try outside next time when it’s warmer. Are to talk without shouting when you’re indoors. Otherwise, it was nice to not pay $25 for a craft cocktail…they were only $15. Nice hidden spot.
