The Downtown Club was originally located on the top floor of the T.W. Patterson Building, before moving to the renovated Fresno Republican Printery Building in 1982, where it remains a vital part of the Valley's business and political scene. Menu selections feature the freshest Valley produce and are varied weekly to reflect the changing seasons. The Downtown Club's professional staff is available to anticipate your every need and meet your every expectation.

The service and value were very poor here. The restaurant appeared to be like a cafeteria. I've eaten here in the past and the quality has significantly gone down.

The service was unprofessional, I felt like I was in a fast food restaurant. Cocktails and drinks were made incorrectly and the restaurant appeared to be on it's last legs.

I would not eat here again and I would be embarrassed to bring a work colleague or date here.

I really enjoy the Sunday brunch here. The food is great and the mimosas are bottomless.

I would recommend the Downtown Club for lunch, happy hour or anything casual. We went on Valentine's Day and the service was good, but the ambiance was far from romantic. Appetizers of Bacon Wrapped Shrimp and Hummus were AWESOME! My husband's steak was good but my halibut was dry and over-cooked. Cheesecake dessert was delicious for us both. I've eaten there before and not been disappointed, but I think for special occasions and romance, I'll go elsewhere.

We went for the bottomless mimosas and brunch. We were literally the only customers until a group of women showed up. The food was really good and they filled our glasses frequently. Mimosas weren't that strong, but they filled them often enough that it didn't matter. The staff was really friendly and hospitable.

We did brunch here off a recommendation of a friend. The food was great and so were the mimosas. Staff was really friendly. A little more publicity and i think this place could take off as a brunch spot.

Take a trip to downtown Fresno and enjoy lunch at the Downtown Club. A very pleasant experience. I enjoyed the pineapple-shrimp salad. No loud music, a bright, cheery atmosphere. and the tables are placed far apart. This all means that people can have a nice conversation during lunch and not hear what the guests at the next table are saying. I especially appreciate the fact that no loud music is playing. There may have been some soft jazz in the background, but to tell the truth, I do not even remember. This is my second time at the Downtown Club and will certainly return. In addition, it is in an interesting building with lots of Fresno history.

What a great place to brunch! Servers are on top of refills and checking on you! This was my second brunch and I will definitely be back again! My only recommendation is to maybe have some music playing in the background....

Servers were really nice. We ordered the same meals but they were not the same. One was missing the meat and cheese and when told they did not replace just gave side sausage links. Price is a little high for what you get. Yes it’s a beautiful place but need to make it match.

This is a delightful, bright, cheery place to enjoy lunch in downtown Fresno. It is quiet and the tables are far apart so conversation can be enjoyed and not hear what the people at next table are saying. There was nice jazz playing in the background which was just at the right sound level so as not to disturb our conservation. The ambiance is perfect. Our choices of the salmon salad and the grilled shrimp and pineapple salad were both very good. Highly recommend the Downtown Club for a delightful lunch in pleasant surroundings. It is a oasis in downtown Fresno.

We went for Valentines Day and really enjoyed ourselves. Service was top notch and we felt very important! Vegan options were limited for my wife, but I loved the salmon I had.
Price was higher than expected, and not on special menu.
