Hook and Ladder Manufacturing Co. represents the bountiful harvest California has to offer and the proud Sacramento history we continue to shape today. We love our city, and we love our state.

While looking into Sacramento’s past, we found that the Industrial Revolution was a fundamental time of change in the region. Steam boats pumped up and down the Sacramento River, and the Nation’s first Transcontinental Railroad was nearing completion. This period of bustling commerce and innovation helped lay the foundation of our city. During the year of 1850, a series of fires destroyed much of the city of Sacramento. A volunteer group, “The Mutual Hook and Ladder Company,” assembled to help rebuild and prevent future disasters.

We aim to rejuvenate the historic space at 17th & S streets by celebrating this time of industry and growth. Our goal is to build upon our city commerce and contribute to Sacramento’s future.

Trout dish was superb - great mix of flavors. Waitstaff recommended the perfect wine to pair and was very attentive. Shrimp appetizer was tasty but swimming in butter (maybe that's how it was supposed to be but not to my taste).

More like 4.5 stars. A fun place, good menu, very good preparation, excellent service. And they have an outstanding selection of high-end bourbons — Eagle Rare, Blanton, etc. (I don't know about their other liquors. The wine-by-the glass choices were very limited but they were good choices.). It was my first time there and I'll be back.

We normally love Hook and Ladder but weren't satisfied with either dessert option for the Dine Downtown special. The cannoli had almost no taste; it was a plain fried dough with plain cream. The olive oil cake was a little better but there wasn't anything memorable about it and I wouldn't get it again if I had the choice. The rest of the menu was delicious but since 1/3 of our meal was nothing to write home about we were disappointed. Next time we'll opt for the regular menu and avoid a pre fixe option.

We really liked the ambiance of this unique place, the excellent farm-to-fork selection and ingredients and great food choices. Our courses were all delicious. Our main courses took a while, but our very friendly waitress nipped any dissatisfaction in the butt with a little plate of almonds and olives to nibble on while we were waiting - very attentive and nice service.

This has been my Sacramento go-to for 3 years now - great cocktails, brunch, menu (changes here and there), chacuterie boards and more. It's not too fancy but the vibe is a blend of hip, modern, trendy and chill...perfect for any time of day or occasion (or lack of).

Awesome food and awesome ambiance - matched with an awesome wait staff. Vee totally rocked it once again. She is what makes our rating of Hook and Ladder go from a 4th place as a favorite to a tie for 2nd, maybe even first :-) And we eat out a lot. Keep her forever!!

I am giving this place overall 5 stars. Came in on a Sunday afternoon and was able to pick seating - love the heated patio. First time trying the place and I was enjoying it - such a good time I didn’t realize how long our order was taking to come out due to a party of 20 before us. Waitress was super accommodating and brought out a few of their different appetizers to try while we waited. The chickpea fritter is amazing - I honestly couldn’t recommend more. Like nothing you’ve ever had before.

First, I will say that the food was very good. We were pleased all around with the quality and flavors. The staff were available and attentive. The service did not deliver seamlessly and had some room to be more intuitive. We shared feedback with the restaurant. The general manager was very timely and sincere in his response. We may have caught them early on a night when they hadn't hit their stride. We'll give it anther try in the future. The house-made passion fruit tonic water won over one of the ladies at the table and I enjoyed the peanut butter fudge at the end! The staff believe in the food and sell it well. It was a not an instant Hook, but it may be in the future.

We enjoyed our dinner on the outside back patio. We began with the House Gin and Tonic, which was delicious. The House Special of homemade spaghetti with shrimp and meat sauce was wonderful. It had a “bit of heat” to it, which made the Hook and Ladder experience perfect for an old retired firefighter. Service from front door welcome to dinner is served was excellent. We’d definitely go back.
