Beautiful restaurant, great service, good food- portions were kind of small for the price- my dining partner even commented that she was still hungry. Maybe add sides of risotto or potatoes, grains, etc. we each had a glass of wine, entree and dessert and the bill was over $100 for lunch (including tip). We knew it was pricey going in tho.

Food, ambiance, service was and always is outstanding! One of our favorites!!
Like to see more fish dishes and more of our winery selection (opus one, caymus, del dotto) but always good selection of wine.

Food was very good. I think the pork chop was slightly overcooked as it was beyond medium and tough to cut into. It was still moist inside and that is probably how most people like it. All other dishes were excellent. Service was great, as always.

Truly another amazing night at Hawks. There is not a meal that goes by without something new and of course outstanding. Hawks is still our number One in the entire Sacramento area.

We have been to Hawks many times, but the last visit was incredible. We had the chef’s tasting menu, which was delicious—absolutely perfect—all courses were tasty and the service was timely. Our waiter, Chad, I believe, was likewise exceptional. My only criticism would be that while their wine list is excellent, it is a bit overpriced. For that reason, among others, we brought our own wine, a 2012 Staglin Family Cabernet, but the corkage fee was $30, which is excessive given Napa restaurants, which is what Hawks aspires to be.

The recommendation is actually a "maybe.""

We attended the Sunday evening tasting menu at Hawks, something we've done in the past and enjoyed. This past Sunday was quite different: the roasted ribeye was not cooked evenly and nowhere near the "medium rare plus" (their term for between med rare and medium) it was supposed to have been. The "cap steak" (Spinalis Dorsi Muscle) portion of the roast is usually nice and tender and fatty delicious but this particular evening that part of the steak was charred beyond well done. And the sides (fingerling potatoes and broccoli) were almost nonexistent - I looked under the meat to see if more was hiding there. Pretty disappointing for $45. Will have to think pretty hard about a "next time."

Food is phenomenal. Service is great. And they are consistently at this level. Highly recommend. We had the tasting menu for the first time and it was creative and delicious. Great wine pairings. Worth the drive to granite Bay.

We have always enjoyed our dining experiences at Hawkes. This was our third visit. We had a special occasion, and although we do not live in the area, we decided to celebrate there. We ordered the chef's tasting menu which was delicious and well executed. Our server was personable and very attentive as was all of the staff. We will definitely go back again.

This is our favorite restaurant for 30 miles. It's slow pace, so be ready to have complete service over time and enjoy it. The food portions are small but order several different dishes. Wait staff is awesome and every table is a good seat in the house. If I have two hours for a date night, I'm going to Hawks.

Our server, Adam, was exceptional! Very knowledgeable of the menu and drinks. The four people in our party had different meals, so we were able to taste a little of everything. The potato gnocchi was the perfect appetizer. They will make it so that four people can share! The filet was outstanding as usual. The maple brined port chop was perfectly cooked with the caramelized apples. A perfect fall meal. The butternut squash agnolotti in brown butter was yummy. The short rib was delicious in red wine sauce. The perfect ending was the butter pecan gelato waffle cone, a must! Overall a perfect dinner!

We eat at Hawks often and are never disappointed. The food is exceptional and the presentation a feast for the eyes. Don’t miss out on the craft cocktails, fresh homemade ingredients make for very tasty drinks.
We love this place. One last comment, the Gnocchis are out of this world.

Fantastic! I had the Short Ribs and my husband had the Filet. We split the Potato Gnocchi as an appetizer and enjoyed the Beignets for dessert. Food and service were amazing. It is pricey, i.e. the Filet was $49 and even though we brought our own bottle of wine, our bill was $195 w/tip. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and the only thing the restaurant did for us was write Happy Anniversary on the side of the dessert plate. I thought that was a bit cheap for a fine dining establishment. You would think you would get a complimentary dessert or glass of something. Friends have asked me "what did Hawk's do for your anniversary?" and I said "nothing."
