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.

The service was pretty disappointing and most of the items listed on the website menu weren’t on the physical menu.

The mushroom fries are killer. Steak was ok looked undercooked for what I expected on the inside and tasted burnt on the outside

Meh - really poor service. For a $300 dinner,
One would expect impeccable service. Food was okay, but lacked flavor this evening. First time dining here but not sure if we would return.

Our server Kim was outstanding - one of the best we have ever experienced. We were also able to relax and enjoy our meal without feeling rushed. One thing that has been lost over the years is the art of spacing each course so that one doesn't feel rushed. We had an incredible 2-hour dining experience for our 29th wedding anniversary that we will never forget.

Great Food, Service, Beer, Etc. Plus no corkage and they'll validate your parking ticket. Noisy as hell, but worth it.

Disappointed in the service our waitress was training a new waitress and between the two of them even though I asked 3 times for coffee after dinner they never brought it. We also had to ask twice for olive oil with the dinner bread before they finally brought it. I was underwhelmed by the service although the food was above average.

Mushroom soup was served lukewarm. Seabass had a heavy fishy taste. Caesar salad look like something out kitchen nightmares.

Celebrating a birthday and was seated in a corner by a service station. Asked to be moved and was relocated to a table by the door. It took 20 minutes until s server came to our table, apologized, blamed it on the large party behind us then left. Finally came back to take a drink order. Waited 10 more minutes, waiter returned without our drinks. Left again and so did we. Went to Morton’s for an excellent meal.

The food was delicious and the service was exceptional. We went for our 5 year anniversary and brought a bottle of nice wine which was decanted for us. We received complementary champagne to toast and a dessert. All the recommendations our server recommended were delicious! She was very sweet and attentive. Overall it was a great place to celebrate and everything was very reasonably priced and was high quality. We’ve been several times and will continue to go back.

Echo and Rig is my favorite restaurant in Sacramento- the food is just so good. My biggest complaint is that their online menu is not accurate and there is no direct way to contact the restaurant . But the service is great and the food is outstanding.

My son’s 18th birthday! Our server was exceptional. This is the 3rd time in a row my steak cut was not cooked to temperature and I had to return to heat. Everyone else’s were fine. They brought a lovely array of complimentary desserts accounting for a food allergy. The prices are just extremely high for the portion sizes of the “sides”.

This is my third visit; the first two were pre pandemic. With all three visits, the service is terrible - the server who takes the order is always fun and great but getting drinks and food in a well timed manner is the terrible part. Only two of my three cocktails arrived timely, as in with my dinner and the scotch with my dessert - they came way too late to enjoy congruently. I really want to love this place, but I can't with each visit. This time the lighting was too high for a Sat night and the music was too low. The space would be so much sexier with some cool new wave 80s playing and lower lighting. The mushroom fries, oysters, and ice cream were amazing; my filet was 'ok'. For a steak place, that's a bummer.

Our server was excellent. We really enjoyed the ambiance and the grass-fed options on the menu. Our food was good but my steak had too much char on the outside (filet). The Brussels sprouts were great. Overall we enjoyed our time and meal. It was very expensive, to the point of being over priced.

The place has changed so much! We use to feel like we were dining at nice restaurant, now it feels like a pool/hotel bar. The Sea Bass was fishy and brown yet we were told it was fresh. Then they brought out dirty knives and the gross stuff on the knife landed on my filet mingon. They took care of us right away so the service was great but definitely not going back!

This restaurant was amazing!! The staff was over the top helpful. Everyone was personable and gave amazing suggestions. From the hostess, to the bartenders who chatted us up while we waited for our table (we arrived early) and our waiter was just an amazing human being who was so gracious to share his experiences. Can't wait to go back.

We had a wonderful night dinning here. Our server Bryan was extremely knowledgeable about the cuts of meat, flavor profiles of the meat, wines and the whiskey. He directed us to try various items all of which were fantastic. The entire staff was very attentive to us. The restaurant was pretty full so to have everyone taking such good care of us was really wonderful. From the cocktails to the appetizer to the dinner and dessert it was a very pleasant experience and we look forward to going back

Our server Kim was very knowledgeable about the menu and took really good care of us for our wedding anniversary. The gentlemen that assisted Kim (I’m assuming the manager and busser?) provided us with great service as well. Would definitely go back again. Such a wonderful experience. Thank you! 😊
