Service was slow. My son's steak was ordered medium; but came out rare. By the time his steak returned the rest of us were almost done eating. His steak was large, but very fatty - definitely not worth the $39.95 price tag for his meal!

Least expensive Merlot was $42.00! Wine list has gone way up. Corkage high too, $20.00. Wine list way overpriced considering the cost of food. Feel like you're being scalped if you want wine with your dinner.

We were seated on the patio. The lighting was almost non existent. We used our phones for light and even the waitresses commented on the poor lighting.
The food and service were both very nice. If we do return we will definitely ask for inside seating.

Lunchtime on New Years Eve is the most quiet, calm, and enjoyable experience we've had in all our dining time in this restaurant!
Brandy gave extra attention to our needs, and food prep satisfaction.

They somehow managed to run out of appetizer bread. The food was pretty good, but not worth the price in my opinion. Our server was really good and didn’t get any orders wrong or forget anything. Overall, it was a typical chain restaurant experience.

We celebrated my mom's 80th birthday here. They found us a quiet table and our server took amazing care of us. Food was outstanding and dinner was beautifully paced so we did not feel rushed. We will be back here again soon. Thank you for helping to make the evening so special.

We were met at the hostess stand with no greeting or smile. Disappointing. Once we were seated it took almost fifteen minutes to be greeted by a server. Granted it was three days before Christmas but the restaurant was only three quarter filled. Our waiter turned out to be the best part of the whole evening a very experienced older gentleman who's personality and attentiveness after the original delay was what you would come to expect in a fine dining restaurant. Unfortunately the food was disappointing the salmon special of the night was not good although advertised as fresh it did not seem to be. This would probably be the last time I would attend this restaurant.

Our waitress, Ashley, was wonderful. A bit disappointed though - I bought $300 of gift cards and specifically asked if I could use the bonus cards for our dinner in a few days and was told "absolutely." That wasn't the case - they were refused. Not a happy camper.

We met friends for lunch. The restaurant is beautiful and very festive for the Christmas holiday. Unfortunately, the food was just lackluster. Having had many great meals at the downtown Sacramento location, this was a disappointment.

So after about 9 visits for dinner, I had my best one a few nights ago. I don't eat a lot, & had two plates from the appetizers menu that were fantastic, and just the right amount of food. I will re-order those again!

First time dining there and would go back based on the food alone. The hostess was a little off, not much in the way of a greeting, but the rest of the service was great. My lentil soup was just ok, but my eggplant was delicious. Also tried some pasta and the tomato sauce tasted so fresh; loved it. The spumoni gelato was amazing as well.
