The City Cafe and Bistro
The creme brulee is always excellent, My filet with the gorganzola butter was probably the most delicious and perfect filet I've had in years. Tonile was an outstanding and delightful waitress.
We were seated promptly in the outdoor courtyard, as requested. Nice atmosphere and very attentive service. The food was delicious! A great dining experience.
Wonderful meal and service. Great restaurant!
Fantastic spot for an anniversary dinner. Will definitely eat here again.
I had chicken marsala, my husband has tuscan chicken, friends had salmon and dover sole. Every meal was excellent. Limited wine offerings. We ended up having Kung Fu Girl riesling, which was good, but not something I would buy elsewhere. If you drink red or chardonnay, you'd be fine. Limited beers—craft brews only. We shared a zucchini appetizer, which was nearly too much for the four of us. Very fresh and delicious, though. Peach cobbler was made with fresh peaches and good but not great. Friends had s'mores and they really liked it. Overall, a very good experience and we will go back.
Fantastic Sunday brunch! Every dish we had was not only excellent, but declared by each diner to be ‘the best ever’.
The Creme Brûlée French toast was eggy inside, with perfect caramel flavor, just like it’s namesake,
Garden omelet was tasty, rich with goat cheese.
Avocado toast on homemade bread was a perfect appetizer..
And the staff was friendly and attentive. Nice atmosphere for dining inside or out.
No negatives whatsoever. Loved it!
I’ve had lunch and dinner here before, but first time for brunch. Excellent service and fantastic food as always. A gem of a place in Yuba City.
We hadn’t been to City Cafe in awhile, so were pleasantly surprised at the excellent entrees and service! Will come back sooner.
Our waitperson Heather, was marvelous! Made our anniversary dinner memorable!!!
Great experience overall! Our server was awesome and the brunch menu was amazing!
We enjoyed our meal very much. One of our party had the caprese chicken and felt there could have been more cheese. Prices are a little high but acceptable for special occasions. My Garden shrimp scampi and Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc were excellent.
We were celebrating our son and his partner’s 9th anniversary.
Love most of the dishes here; the service is top shelf. Love dining outdoors (whenever possible) in the patio courtyard.
Good salad with homemade balsamic dressing. I had the risotto dish- very tasty and rich. Others’ had the salmon salad and steak. All were done to perfection!
Will be going back soon for lunch!
Food was excellent. Apps to entree prepared just right. Good wine selection.
Like coming to this restaurant. Food is always good and a great selection.
I reserved a table for four and indicated we were celebrating my birthday. When we arrived, they didn't have our reservation, nor did they acknowledge my birthday celebration. We also told them when we arrived, we were celebrating a Birthday. I was a bit disappointed with no acknowledgement.
We love this restaurant! A nice out of the way spot where you can spoil yourself. The menu might be considered limited, but the food is phenomenal. Would like it to be less pricey, but you pay for what you get. Ron & Jama
We like to go to city cafe when it’s jsut the two of us - sadly paying what you do for amazing food the service was extremely disappointing. Our server had zero personality and focused on another table which is a let down. We had to ask another server for water refills and bread. It’s little things, not asking to constantly check on us or to join in on our conversation but it would be nice for the server to actually seem like a people person
Have been an occasional customer for a few years now. City Cafe never disappoints. Always excellent food and service, in a pleasant atmosphere.
Good tasty food. A slightly original menu especially for Yuba City. Very good service, well paced and very pleasant. Only downside was the lack of ambiance. The too loud piped repeated Neil Diamond didn't help. But, despite that we will go back. An improvement over previous visits. I heard there were new owners? That could explain it.
Excellent food and drinks!! Excellent service from the bartender, but not from the wait staff. The wait staff need some training. They never checked on us, we had to ask for menus, water, silverware, napkins. Weird, because they are usually really good. Hopefully better next time.
It is a small place so seating is a bit limited. They first sat us in the bar but we requested the main dining area so that sat us next to the kitchen door. In their defense it is a small place and seating is limited. I thought the fact that we had reservations and half the tables were empty would have carried some weight but I guess not. The food was O.K. but I had my heart set on lamb. They had a "special" valentines menu; NO lamb!
I love The City Cafe. The food is always amazing and the cocktails are equally good.
