superb dinner as always, food is phenomenal portions aren't always that great that's the only thing!, great creative flavors and staff/service are extremely helpful and knowledgable. Love the 'extras' you get to taste. Menu could change more and more veggies included in the price would be nice.

Lovely restaurant with excellent food and service. Wish the man courses offered more choices for vegetarians; my pasta with crab and salmon entrees were terrific. The surprise "shot" of butternut soup a nice touch; ditto for the small chocolates at the end. A beautifully plated dessert with "Happy Anniversary" in chocolate appreciated.

The service was outstanding and much better than on my one prior visit. However, will not return for the following reasons: No vegan options so relied on the Chef. He prepared a very nice plate of vegetables. It was really more of a side dish than an entrée. This speaks to the other entrees at Hawks. In my opinion they are rather small. You get much more value from other similarly priced high end restaurants in Sacramento.

Great restaurant. It was our first time and it was fabulous. We went to the Sunday Supper, a four course meal for $45.00 per person. Now that's what I call a bargain. The food was fantastic. We have been meaning to try Hawks for years, but we live 30 minutes away. It was well worth the drive. On top of the great food, the service is outstanding and the ambiance is beautiful. This is a first class restaurant and we will be coming back.

I usually like this restaurant very much, but my last meal there was not very good and the service was so mediocre. I have dined at Hawks frequently and have had the Sunday Supper Fried Chicken before and found it very good, which is why I went back again for it. This time the chicken was burnt, everything was greasy, and the dessert was so-so. I was so dissappointed. The soup was good. The server was not that attentive, never checked back to see if we needed anything. It took forever to get the check because multi-tasking seemed impossible....why a person cant stop to check on your table as they are going to refill a water is confusing to me. I will go back but probably never again for the chicken dinner. Not a winner winner this time.

The restaurant staff have a pretentious attitude, with no good reason.
Expect long waits and snotty service.
Being dressed In a suit and ordering a $175 bottle of wine did not improve the service attitude.
The food was good and bad, the duck was excellent, the steak was poor.
The manager did try to recover on the steak, but our patience was exhausted.

I could be a nice local restaurant with an improvement in service.
Menu is limited.

Fresh romaine for caesar salad with exquisite dressing and shaved parmesan cheese. Steak cooked exactly to order was choice cut New York. Waygu beef burgers with Shitake mushrooms cooked to order with great French fries. Service was attentive and professional. Excellent lunch. Good joint with well stocked bar full of great bourbon.

We are Hawks' advocates. Great food as always. Got a little nervous at the beginning as the service was a little slow to start, but things improved as the dinner progressed. Our server seemed stretched at the start, but we are glad that things got better since we brought 4 out of town guests with us .

We were there to celebrate a birthday. I expected the staff to be upbeat and friendly. They were cordial and answered our questions regarding the menu and wine list. The chicken and salmon lacked seasoning and the brussel sprouts were very oily. Not a place I would visit again.

We enjoyed a dinner with out of town house guests. They commented the dinner was as good as any experienced in their home city, Denver. Two of us had butternut squash soup. It was great and prompted a debate about the wonderful seasonings in it. The chicken was praised but the duck confit was OK. The deserts were five star with the pear soufflé leading the pack. The room was loud and could use addition of some soft surfaces to dampen some of the background noise.

The food was really, really good and so was the service. But the ambiance ruined the experience for me. We were seated within a foot of a large, loud party. We were there for a romantic dinner and we couldn't even hear each other. I also think it's much too bright in the restaurant. The lights aren't dimmed at all - seems like more of a setting for a family restaurant instead of a restaurant for couples. I spent $180 on dinner on a special birthday dinner for two and I don't feel like I got money's worth. I wish we had gone to Morton's or Ruth's Chris instead.

My wife and I celebrated an anniversary and dinner at Hawks made it especially enjoyable. I had fresh made pasta and my wife enjoyed the Salmon. Both of the dinners were great and left no room for improvement. Our starting salads were great, fresh and crisp. We both enjoyed peach tarts for dessert and they were fabulous. The service was just what you would want - our waitress, Mackenzie, was attentive and helpful but did not hoover around or intrude on our dining experience.
