    We had a wonderful dinner. The NY strip was excellent with mushrooms, gorgonzola, smothered in a wine reduction. My wife's salmon was slightly over cooked. However, the service was exceptional and the pork and fig appetizer was excellent.

    We had the worst experience at our recent visit. Times before we’re actually very good and nice people, and great food. This last visit; we waited for over 30 minutes before anyone came to our table, as they took orders from a large party that came in after us. Another couple cancelled their order and left. We finally ordered and when our wine was delivered the waitress did not verify our bottle of wine we ordered and opened a whole different bottle without saying anything. Then she finally mentioned “oh sorry we’re out of the wine you ordered, so we’re serving this one.” At the same high price!!!! Like really????? Didn’t even ask us if it was a good substitute which it wasn’t. Our dinner came out before our soup and salad, and told the waitress, she just stared at us… it was just a hot mess and so disappointing we just left.. didn’t eat or drink anything but I still left a $20 on the table out of good gesture, like why? Right? I got nothing but grief on my husband’s birthday ugh!!!!!! Won’t go back for awhile hoping they improve and go back to the way they were.

    We are so sorry to hear of your bad experience. This night was definitely an exception (as you can see from our other reviews) and we were not not adequately staffed. Much to our surprise on a Tuesday night, the dining filled up with large parties and service declined quickly. Our team would really like to make it up to you if you would be so kind to private message your address so we can send a gift card.

    It was Valentine's Day and it was crazy busy there. I thought they did a good job considering. We were in the back room and there were 4 tables and there was some confusion about order numbering so the kids bringing the food were always ending up at the wrong table. But the food was good and we like supporting our local businesses. Will definitely be going again but would love to see another one or two vegetarian options. Bring back the Impossible Burger!

    We ordered two fish main course both dried out and I did not eat hardly any of it. The fondue dessert was a hot fudge style chocolate that should have been served on a hot fudge sundae was thick and terrible and the sides to go with the chocolate were poor cheap choices. Disappointed for a $69 per person dinner.

    We were seated immediately by a very pleasant hostess. However, we then waited...and waited...and waited for a server to acknowledge us. Many walked by, and several even looked right at us. I could see servers at other tables, and they seemed quite friendly and professional. There were two parties seated AFTER us that had servers stop by, yet there we sat. Just when I was beginning to get a complex, thinking we had broken some unknown rule, a manager came and took our order. Whew! Sadly, everything didn't go perfectly after that. We never really had a server, just random managerial types occasionally checking in. I had to flag servers / bussers down if we needed anything. It was rather bizarre. Luckily, the food, for the most part, was TERRIFIC! The poke stack appetizer was better than poke we had in Hawaii! The lamb was flavorful and fall off the bone tender. Portions were quite large, which is rare these days. The accompanying vegetables were fresh, and well prepared. The mashed potatoes were really good, even though they were lukewarm. Sadly, my salmon was a bit dry, and had less than a teaspoon of the delicious chimchurri sauce smeared on top of it. I had to flag down a server to request more sauce - as nobody checked to see that our entrees were acceptable. (I would have ordered a second glass of wine, but, alas, there was no server to request it from.) Our plates were never cleared. I had to flag a manager to request the check. All in all, I would give this restaurant another try, since the food was really good. Since I could clearly see and hear other tables receiving EXCELLENT service, I feel that the poor service we experienced was an anomaly.

    Hi, Thank you for letting us know! Our server that was assigned to your table had a hard time keeping up with the volume of tables we gave him with the early theatre rush across the street. We are so sorry you experienced sub par service and you absolutely did get shuffled around. We're thrilled to read that you are open to giving us another chance! We at Hotel Sutter would like to extend an invitation to you because of the mistakes that we made during your last visit. We'll be reaching out to get your address so we can send you a gift card to use during your next visit. We hope to see you again and have the opportunity to provide you the excellent experience that our patrons deserve.

    We celebrated my husbands birthday! First time dining here and we had a great time! We brought friends from out of town and they loved the area. Our waiter Aaron was funny, attentative and kept making sure we had plenty of water and drinks. Loved his personality as well. All of the staff was friendly and accommodating. Food was delicious but the burgers were undercooked even though our party asked for medium well, but still delicious. it did take awhile to get our food though. Overall great night and we will be back during the summer months.

    We LOVE going to Sutter Creek, even though we live in the Mother Lode, as well. The town exudes charm, has wonderful retail stores, AND the Sutter Hotel, an historic building. We go there several times a year, and always chose to eat lunch at their restaurant. The dining room opens to the street in summer. The service is wonderful, and food very nice.

    We have eaten here before and the food was good but nothing to rave about. This time three of us had chicken cacciatore special and it was all excellent. The other had lamb shank and again excellent! This was such a dramatic improvement that we are wondering if there is a new chef since our last visit about a year ago. Whatever the case, we WILL go back!!!

    We enjoyed a delicious and festive pris fixe New Year's Eve dinner at the Hotel Sutter. The filet mignon was tender and the chicken cacciatore was perfectly seasoned and moist. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Service was excellent!! We ended our evening downstairs in the Copper Room where we sipped a nightcap while listening to 40's music. A delightful way to welcome in 2024.

    Good menu variety. The French dip was excellent. Also. The side salad was very good. Not just greens with a tomato. It was filled with zucchini, carrots, tomatoes and a great blue cheese dressing. The blue cheese burger was also yummy.

    We were greeted promptly and seated at our reserved time. They seemed to be short-staffed and we waited a while for service, but our waiter went out of his way to be friendly and accommodate the strict gluten free needs of one of our group. The chef delivered our food herself and reassured us that the food had been prepared in a strictly gluten-free way! All of the food was very tasty.
