Steakhouse
With Echo & Rig Chef Sam Marvin has introduced a pioneering new concept transforming the long-held theories behind the steakhouse formula.

We put a unique nose-to-tail spin on the traditional steakhouse, allowing diners to indulge in the best cuts of meat for incredibly approachable prices.

A butcher before a steakhouse, we use every part of the animal. We care about every animal - how it lived, what it ate, and how it was cared for.

Our 7,000 square foot space is located in the Downtown Commons Neighborhood (DOCO) in the lobby of The Sawyer Hotel. Situated on the bustling J Street corridor facing the Golden 1 Center main entrance.

We have a versatile space: a private dining room with audio/visual capability, an outdoor patio, and an outdoor bar available for rent.

    A wonderful dining experience. It began with the manager seating us and asking about our day, reason for being there, etc. This information was conveyed to our server, Issa, who greeted us and asked more about our day. Issa was incredibly knowledgeable about the menu, while providing great insight and recommendations on pairing for the steaks. The kitchen produced some of the highest quality food Sacramento has to offer. If you are looking for an amazing night out, make sure you check out Echo and Rig

    We received absolutely amazing service from Kim. We could not speak more highly of her and the experience she provided. The drinks were also exceptional. However, everything else about our meal was a miss. Our food came out completely cold, over cooked, and or undercooked. Some items were missing others arrived late. It was all over the map. I’ve eaten here multiple times and always found the steaks cooked perfectly. This visit was disappointing especially since I was brining out of town guests. The restaurant was also very loud making for difficult conversation. I recommend this spot often and because of my previous meals will give it another try. If this had been my first visit I would not be interested in going back.

    We always eat here when we're in Sacramento. Portabello fries are a must-do appetizer. My husband loves their fillet. My favorite dish is the artichoke and shrimp. TBH I didn't care for the brussel sprouts as I prefer them roasted and crispy but others at my table loved them. The fresh bread loaf with dinner was fantastic. Service is always top notch. There's a drink with passion fruit that I get every time.

    If you’re a steak person be sure to order the rib cap. It’s awesome, it does sell out sometimes so ask to reserve them when you first get seated. Mushroom soup and raw oysters are the perfect starters!

    Outstanding experience! I came here for my birthday with a few friends and we were treated amazingly. The managers and our servers were very attentive, answered all of our questions, and made us feel comfortable! I would highly recommend Echo and Rig and am so grateful because they brought out a dessert to end our celebration as well as gifts from the kitchen. I’m so happy we dined here and will definitely be back! Definitely recommend the cauliflower appetizer as well as any of the salads! The charred onion sauce and entrees were delicious! Food was fantastic and the staff definitely made my night special!

    Ordered a medium rare steak. Emphasized closer to rare side. It came out medium well and well done in some parts. I expect more from a steak house, especially when we are averaging $100 a person for food and drink costs. Food was overly salted (vegetables for example). My first time in Sacramento and won’t be back since I can probably find better food else where.

    I always love bringing family and friends here for a meal. But this time we got placed in the very far corner of the restaurant, and it was freezing. We asked if they could turn up the heat, but that didn't seem to happen. Quite disappointing. But the service and the food were excellent as always.

    This was our second time dining at Echo and Rig, pre-game. The staff is attentive and helpful, the wine by the glass offerings are top notch and the food is inventive and delicious. It's a bit noisy, but I'll chalk that up to excited fans heading to the game.

    Great service this evening! The food was a little off Tried the cheeseburger and it wasn't what I expected from a steakhouse. The place could use some acoustic treatment to help tone down the high-pitched chatter. When you're ordering one of the best old fashions in town, you want to relax and not get wound up. But this was my fifth trip in four weeks to this excellent restaurant and I'm not going to let a an average cheeseburger Keep me away.

    Food was above our expectations. The only real negative was the drink prices. $18 for a Tanqueray and tonic. Really? I expect those prices at a concert, but that's ridiculous for a restaurant.

    Our previous 4 visits to Echo and Rig have been consistently outstanding. The meal on this particular evening, however, was subpar. While the filet mignon was excellent, the hanger and rib eye steaks were well below expectation on this particular visit. It also didn't quite help matters that our over-worked server was only able to visit us only twice during the evening - take our order and to deliver us the check. Maybe an off night, but it will be awhile before we return.

    Awesome service...awesome cocktails...awesome food! Recommend the ribeye steak...perfectly rare and really good. Fried Castelvetrano olives...calamari...risotto...pork belly sides were DEE LISH US!!! Our Echo and Rig dinner date was FAR better than the Firehouse dinner date. The food is waaay better and our waiter, Michael (I think??) was attentive and professional...and he had a great sense of humor. It was a birthday celebration also and we were given FREE dessert which was a delicious vanilla ice cream with homemade pound cake and berries....thank you! WE WILL BE BACK!

    We had a good lunch this morning. The food was very delicious. My wife enjoyed the N.Y. egg sandwich (basically a couple fried eggs with bacon) and a side salad. I had the butcher’s burger with cheddar cheese and bacon with fresh cut French fries. They have a good selection of local beers on tap. Service was adequate during a bit of a rush. Pleasant dining atmosphere.

  • Catering
    A butcher before a steakhouse, we use every part of the animal making everything from custom cut steaks, creative sausages, headcheese, and bone broth. We care about every animal - how it lived, what it ate, and how it was cared for. Our nose-to-tail approach allows diners to indulge in the best cuts of meat for incredibly approachable prices. We offer a robust menu of entrees, steaks, vegetables, and sides.
  • Private party facilities
    Echo & Rig is a brand new steakhouse opening in the Downtown Commons Neighborhood (DOCO) in Sacramento. Situated on the bustling J Street corridor, we proudly share courtyard space with the Golden 1 Center. Originally opened in Las Vegas, Echo & Rig is touted as “The Best Group Dining Experience in Las Vegas”. We are truly a cut above the rest and a top choice for corporate and social entertaining. We have a versatile space: a private dining room with audio/visual capability, an outdoor patio, and an outdoor bar available for rent; we provide in-house food and bar service; and production and styling options. Our central downtown Sacramento location makes it an accessible and practical space for Sacramento business meetings, happy hours, and holiday parties. We are less than a half mile away from the 7th and I County Center Light Rail Station and blocks away from numerous transit lines.
