Rio City Cafe is situated in beautiful historic Old Sacramento, overlooking some of the most prominent landmarks in Sacramento. The Sacramento River runs by our spacious outdoor patio, with spectacular views of the historic Tower Bridge and the Ziggurat (pyramid) building.
Rio City Cafe opened its doors in May of 1994. We display a comfortably casual setting, with indoor and outdoor seating. We can accommodate large parties and banquets, as well as private parties in our banquet room for special occasions. Or just simply enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine and the view in the outdoor cocktail area. During the colder months, enjoy the view from inside near our cozy fireplace.

However, the plates have shrunk and the price has inflated. The server forgot several items. We were served a drink from a glass that was chipped and cracked. The bathrooms were filthy.

Got seated on the deck overlooking the river and it was absolutely lovely. The food was cooked perfectly, the service was prompt and everyone was so kind. Definitely going back for another date night.

Although we had been seated we waited about 10 minutes before someone to come to our table. Appetizers came out promptly( crab cakes were pretty good) but dinner took some time. When it came it was cold and the fries had definitely been sitting for some time! Had to ask another server to bring us out check after we sat for about 25 minutes. I wanted dessert but was ready to go. Probably won't be returning.

My husband had the fish & chips which was good. Unfortunately, the Swordfish I ordered was very disappointing. It was very mushy in consistency as if it had been frozen then microwaved or boiled, very tasteless. I told the waitress and she just apologized and said she would let the kitchen know. She didn’t offer a replacement meal or to at least mention it to the manager perhaps because they were getting ready to close. I just ate part of it and the vegetables & potatoes. At $38, I expected a decent swordfish dinner. We didn’t want to complain any further and just paid our bill & left. We will be sure to never eat at this restaurant again.

The food took really long to arrive. The pricing of the food and drinks were overpriced. And on top of that, they automatically charge a chef’s fee which I don’t feel is not necessary. Overall, I probably wouldn’t eat there again.

The view of the river is beautiful and the area is historic and fun. The prices reflect a tourist destination but the food isn’t up to the price. We had lunch and the ‘Jambalaya’ my husband ordered was very canned tomato sauce forward. Strange flavor profile with strange texture. It was good enough to eat but not great. I had a ran melt which was not super crabby. More breading than crab but a lot. Commercial French fries. Again passable but still tourist food. Locals likely don’t bother eating there. If you’re visiting and have enough & go for it. Server was delightful!’n

I was earlier and would have liked to have an opportunity to enjoy a beverage outside rather than being directed to the bar by the hostess. She indicated that there wasn’t any place other than the bar area, which was inside. I wandered outside onto an open area located next to the outside dining. How unfortunate that that area couldn’t be used as a waiting area where patio umbrellas and furniture could be staged for guests to wait for their tables. Terry was our server and she was great answering our questions while making some excellent suggestions. She’s a keeper! Special thank you to Terry. I look forward to dining at Rio City Cafe again in the future.

Our server was very accommodating when we asked to move indoors, as the weather had turned windy and it was quite cool outside. The food, wine and desert was excellent. We were able to relax and talk without any pressure to leave. We were there for about 2 hours.
