Comfort Food
Q1227 Restaurant is trailblazing a new genre we're calling California Comfort Food. Our entrees are designed from California's freshest ingredients, embodied with bold, succulent flavors. Chef Q embraced his native Florida roots and have created dishes that are wrapped in California's fresh fruit and vegetables. Some house favorites are our Q1227 Chicken Fried Lobster Bites, our Roasted Vegetable Flatbread, our phenomenal Grilled Seafood Platter and finishing the night off with our Bourbon Street Bread Pudding.

Q1227 Restaurant offers three dining areas; inside, covered patio and extended patio. Upon your arrival you can request your preference and we will do all possible to accommodate. However, accommodations are based on first come, first serve.

First of all, you MUST put in a reservation for this restaurant. It’s popping and everyone has learned of this restaurant and their yummy food. Chef Q does an awesome job and well as his family who run the restaurant. I appreciate that he comes out to all the tables and greets us to make sure we are having an excellent experience. The Hostess & Wait Staff are phenomenal and we will be sure to come back with more friends and family. Delicious food and a must visit!

The crispy shrimp and creamy grits was outstanding as was the spinach and avocado salad. The bread pudding (which we shared) was also not to be missed. Service staff were uniformly sweet, professional and knowledgeable. We will definitely be back as there are so many items to try still!

Absolutely to die for food, wonderful service and very friendly family owned establishment. We immediately booked another reservation. Another huge plus is no corkage fee! Reminded me of Georgia Brown in DC, one of my favorite Southern Food restaurants. Highly recommend!

AMAZING!!! Birthday dinner for my better half and it was spectacular! Everyone we came in contact with was so kind and accommodating. We will definitely return, there are many items we want to try. This is a dining experience not to be missed. We were the last patrons to leave and at no point did we feel as though we needed to hurry to finish our meal. We loved our server Desiree, she is great! Planning our next visit!

Food was incredible, the service was attentive and very pleasant - although we did feel like we waited a long time for food to arrive. Whatever the wait it was worth it - the food was very well prepared and absolutely delicious. The owner/owners wife is such a sweet friendly addition to the dining room - overseeing, speaking with her guest what a delight - everyone who works there that we encountered was an absolute pleasure . We shall return SOON highly recommend

The warmest, most welcoming staff and super tasty food. Only complaint was that it was a bit noisy (people having a good time, but also lots of hard surfaces), but that won't keep us away. The menu is full of things we still want to try and the wine list was delightful. Standouts were the Szechuan okra, gumbo, pork belly tidbits and pecan pie. They were out of Bone Marrow, so hope to get that the next time around. The decor is warm and interesting and the mood is casual but smart. We will definitely be back!

Great food, attentive staff at check in. Waiter was great. Bus staff was working hard, chef came out to check on us. Overall great experience. Wish they had a full bar but understand that's challenging in Placer County. Maybe a bigger beer selection in the meantime?

Like We're already planning our next 3 or 4 visits and what we'll order next time. @q1227restaurant is an EXPERIENCE. Super welcoming and down home but still maintained A high end vibe. The staff was amazing. Got to meet Chef Q and share our gratitude. This was one for the books! Go send them some business if you're in the area.

Reservation was at 6:30
We arrived at 6:10, planning to sit at bar for cocktail.
The hostess said the bar is only for walk ins, that have no reservation!!!
At 6:30 we assumed we would be seated. At 6:45 I asked how long,, the hostess stated, “there are a lot of people in front of you!!”
We were seated at 7:00,, for our 6:30 reservation!!!
Unacceptable!!!

Unfortunately, after waiting a long time to be able to try out this new restaurant, we had a less than stellar experience. Our reservations were at 7:45 and we had to wait about 40 mins to be seated. There were only two people in our party. There were other groups who arrived after us (very much after us) but were seated before us, which was frustrating. Even after being told we were next, they sat a twosome in front of us. Then we were asked if we were ok being on the patio at which point we said we didn’t mind we just wanted to sit and eat. However we were not seated on the covered patio, we were seated on an extension of the patio, uncovered, adjacent to the parking lot. It was cold. We did not get home until almost 10:00. My husbands steak and our cauliflower steak were both really delicious but dripping in oil. Still worth it. My shrimp and grits were not great. The grits were overwhelmed by an herb that I couldn’t quite name. Rosemary, maybe? Thyme? Overall the grits tasted like herbaceous, thick, warm ranch. Too creamy and rich for me. I was hoping for salty and cheesy. The shrimp were ok but reminded me of popcorn shrimp. Not light tempura batter which is how it was explained to me. Maybe a case of unmet expectations. We will probably not come back.

Made a reservation for 7 but didn’t get seated for 25 minutes. If you’re recommending reservations you should try to honor them. Seated in the bar area which is bustling with people walking on both sides of our table. The food is good but for the price point it doesn’t feel like it’s worth it. The service was fine but didn’t quite match either. Overall, would not rush back.

The food is fantastic! Chef Q, his wife, and staff are attentive and just really great & kind people! I had the Branzini which was tender and delicious, a piece of art work (you have to order it to understand :-) ). Chef Q and his wife made a point to visit with every guest, it made the evening quite special. The hostess was remarkable and so sweet, she remember my name when we left for the evening. If you don't eat here you are truly missing out!

Third time for us, to celebrate my husband's birthday. Lots of different choices on the menu, from starters through entrees, for you to cobble together memorable meals to fit your food preferences. We've had shrimp and grits, chicken, lobster bites, lime cheesecake on prior occasions. There is no way to do justice in writing. We started with wine, in beautiful glasses. This visit we repeated the lobster bites, I chose broccolini as my main, my husband had meatloaf and mashed potatoes, and we split the Bourbon Street bread pudding for dessert. They were anything but the ordinary preparations and presentations you might expect. They've become so popular that Friday and Saturdays are booked weeks ahead. Even on the Thursday evenings we've been there it has been packed, all with good reason. The inside ambiance is unique, and tends to be noisy. Outdoor seating is also available and popular. You won't regret an evening there.

The food is off the charts incredible, and the service was somehow even better than the food. I felt like I walked in to my best friends house, instantly greeted by the friendliest, kindest, most considerate hostess. We sat down, our waitress was so sweet and helpful and knowledgeable. And the food… oh my god. I will be coming back, probably once a week. Definitely recommend this spot!

I never write reviews because I can’t be bothered. But this place, THIS PLACE, deserves a review and certainly I can take the time for that. The food is exquisite- the perfect modern meld of southern comfort food. There is nothing in this menu that doesn’t make your mouth instantly water or your stomach jovial in anticipation. Everything we have ever eaten at this temple for delicious provisions has been of 5 star quality. I cannot wait to return and continue my way through the menu. I literally dream of this. The staff is friendly, welcoming, polite, and so cheerful. It’s like they know they’re serving the nectar of the gods. They must. The ambiance is great, the smells divine, location perfect. If you go beware people will be staring at what you order because they themselves can’t stop but ogle in anticipation of they’re meal. This place is legit. It’s for real. GO. NOW!

Wonderful food and fantastic service. Bar is only beer and wine which was disappointing. Also, bar is for walk-ins so we couldn’t enjoy a drink at the bar prior to being seated at our table. Our waitress was amazing and so welcome informed on the dishes and wine list. They do have outdoor dining which I would probably choose next time because the restaurant is extremely noisy, especially for older folks. I highly recommend giving this place a try. It’s well worth it.
