Located in downtown Sacramento, America's Farm to Fork Capital, Grange is a culinary expression of all things local, reflecting the authentic essence and soul of the community.

The menu showcases the market-driven bounties from the state and is best described as simple, seasonal and soulful. Organically raised meats and poultry are complemented with the freshest produce available from the Central Valley, while sustainable coastal seafood is paired with a spectacular all-California wine list. The entrees are presented in a straightforward American brasserie style. Lastly, enjoy the creations from our pastry chef such as rustic artisan breads and desserts.

This Sacramento restaurant’s setting is both classic and authentic. The two-story space combines architectural elements from the building’s rich history with exposed beams and concrete columns to create a surprising and urban, loft-like atmosphere.

My wife and I have been to Grange many times for brunch and lunch. Had a good steak dinner there a few months ago. We signed up for the 10th anniversary dinner.....pricey but it was to be a 10 course meal. Our 8:00pm reservation became 8:40pm. The courses came out painfully slow and most were just okay. At 10:00pm, we decided to skip 4 of the 10 courses and dessert. Grabbed the check and left but not before we were charged again for the dinner we had prepaid weeks ago. A correction was made and we bolted out...... not a good experience!!

Good farm to fork options. A bit pricey for some fish. Clam chowder is not what most think and should be renamed.

The food was amazing. We had pumpkin soup, gnocchi and black cod with a side of brussel sprouts. All we unique and delicious. The service was great as were the craft cocktails. We were able to enjoy a fabulous dinner with valet parking, walk two blocks to the Golden 1 Center for a Kings game. We then returned for dessert and a nightcap. Overall a perfect evening.

I think it is overpriced for what you are getting as there are several comparable restaraunts in terms of quality of food and atmosphere for less money. The restaurant itself is not “fancy” or upscale but the prices are. The food is very good but it does not command that price. That is probably why we could get a last minte reservation at 7:15 on a Sat. Night.

Very nice restaurant. Menu choices very interesting. Food well prepared and elegantly presented. Only downside was the noise level as the bar is in the same room as the dining area. Acoustics could definitely be improved. Also, perhaps a minor point, the restrooms are located in the adjacent/attached hotel.

Given the excellent food and service, the Grange would do well in its own building or location not attached to a hotel or at least, separate the bar from the main dining area.

Grange provides a high quality downtown dining experience. From the front door valet parking service to the disarming chic causal atmosphere to a smart single page dinner menu filled with a variety of gourmet offerings this restaurant is an attractive choice for selective diners. The divers scallop appetizer was delicately prepared, blending a unique combination of flavors and textures - one of the best starters I can recall. The braised short rib entree was so tender that the knife was superfluous; with an intriguing savory medley of spices and wonderful tastes. Do not order the banoffee (combination banana and toffee) bar dessert unless you are prepared to swoon from the decadent chocolate ganache and crunchy creamy filling; I couldn’t put the spoon down - it seemed to have a life of its own in my hand as the plate was soon empty!

Wonderful brunch! My egg white frittata was delicious, and my husband had the hash, which the waiter had recommended. He said it was fantastic. Plus, their Bloody Mary's were really good...just the right amount of spice. Great service, as well. We will be back the next time we come to Sacramento.

The food was good but some of the dishes seemed to be trying too hard to be unusual. The clam chowder was really a dish of clams in the shells with a broth over it. A little too 'trendy'.

The Grange is usually excellent. However this night both our main entries (we each ordered a different fish) were not well prepared, which is unusual. Even more disappointing the service was extremely lacking and we even had to ask the staff for our waitress to come back to our table because she was so non-attentive. Once we brought this to her attention, she stepped up her game. Very disappointing overall, which again is unusail for this restaurant.

I keep saying I will never go back, but every few months I give it another try. The location of the restaurant and overall atmosphere is the only reason I go back. The food is horrible. It looks beautiful. But the quality is not there. Over the last couple of years, I have had super under cooked chicken, egg shells in salad dressing, old fishy salmon (more than once), and something in one of my guests entrees that was not food. After talking to a few people who use to frequent Grange, they had similar experiences including one that was far worse than my experience which was finding a worm in their salad. This time I am really not going back.

The food here is always awesome. We started with dessert - chocolate beignets. Really good. then I had eggs benedict which were also really good, but the potatoes were overcooked and tasteless. My husband had a breakfast burger and he loved it.
Whatever you do - do not sit back by the kitchen. The staff pays no attention to the fact that their conversations seem like they are at your table. It is very distracting from the experience. And they are loud. Why they put us back there in the undesirable section I don't know, as the place was practically empty. Also, the service was not good. As an example, iced tea came out quick, mimosa was a long time coming. And, again, the place was virtually empty.
I will return because the food is good but they really need to get their act together on service and the noise from the kitchen.

We had a fantastic time. We had a show in about an hour so we just grabbed a few appetizers and drinks, all of which were amazing. I’d definitely recommend the brussel sprouts and the charred butternut squash, and don’t say no to the bread!, the butter is incredible.

The food was not good. The short rib is not short; it was a full length beef rib. It was fatty and greasy. The beef shank was shredded in a bowl which was a surprising presentation. The charcuterie was all terrine, head cheese, and mousse.

The bread was good though.

My son and daughter in law live in Sacramento and we head up that way from the Bay Area on a regular basis. We increasingly feel that Sacramento is notable for excellent restaurants and The Grange simply reinforces that impression.

The food was excellent. We started with a election of charcuterie. The amounts were generous and if pate is your thing, The Grange is your restaurant. Order a good glass of wine, sit back and enjoy. The black cod was amazing, the pork chop was delicious and the gnocchi were excellent. I don't generally eat dessert, but we were celebrating a birthday so I indulged and the dessert I ordered was fantastic. I don't remember the name of the confection, but it involved cheese, fig jam and pistachios. I would add that in general, all the portions were very large. Big eaters will be pleased.

The service was attentive without being intrusive. The ambience was casual but elegant and the noise level was surprisingly comfortable. As a person who enjoys a good conversation over dinner, I would come back for that alone.

We are only modest drinkers, but the wine list looked quite good and I was pleased to find a Limoux among the offerings of sparkling wine. My husband was pleased with the beer selection.

I look forward to my next dinner at The Grange. It's well worth the trip, and it helps put Sacramento on the map.
