Wade and April gave us great service and food. Everything was great from appetizer, salad, entrees (salmon and sea bass) to dessert. Their mussels are always our favorite appetizer.
My third visit to Ravenous and once again the food and service were superior.
Absolutely amazing meal. Such great attention to detail with every component of the meal, from the great soup, beet salad, to the perfectly seared duck breast and chilean sea bass. Elegant decor without being over-the-top or stuffy. The definition of a neighborhood gem, but that wouldn't be suffice. A true Sacramento, regional, global treasure. Wade and April create a magical ambience and experience to match the heavenly food.
Once again Wade & April exceeded our expectations.We love this place!
Small restaurant with really cozy atmosphere . The owner is the server and he was really nice. Would highly recommend this restaurant . You do need reservations.
The owner is great!
Excellent service as usual. Wade is always friendly and courteous. A local gem.
The price doesn't match the food. Wine was great but we didn't like the food.
Service by far the best I have ever experienced and the seared pork belly was to die for highly recommended for everyone
I love Ravenous. A group of friends had lunch there. I was able to introduce Ravenous to them. They all really enjoyed the food and ambiance and the owner Wade who was friendly and helpful in selecting the food. Our group had scallops, escargot, duck risotto and burgers and desserts. Everything was fresh and flavorful and all dishes were well received.
Immediately upon stepping through the door we were pleasantly surprised. It’s small and quaint but it makes the experience that much better. Conversation was quiet, I barely heard anyone else’s and was able to talk to my husband in a normal tone. The ambiance was such a nice change from a “normal” restaurant. It was romantic and perfect for our date night. Food prices were more than we expected, but in my option well worth it. Our server (April) was fantastic. She did a great job, perfect balance between helping us and also letting us enjoy our meal and night. And our glasses were never empty. All in all a fantastic dining experience, will definitely be back.
Very personable service, excellent food, intimate setting.
Truly one of the finest dining experiences in Sacramento. Wade, the owner makes everyone feel special. The food is incredible and the ambience is warm. Great service & a awesome meal. Enjoy!
Amazing Valentine's menu! Will definitely return for another visit.
Quiet cozy atmosphere. Lovely Linen table cloths! Food is elegantly delicious.
We were looking for a special occasion but not-too-stuffy place for a birthday dinner and read great reviews for Ravenous. It is located in a strip mall but offers an oasis of calm among the chaos. Everything about the meal was on point, from the friendly greeting and lovely decor to the warm crusty bread and delicious appetizers (crab cakes and salad).
Entrees of steak and of salmon risotto were fantastic as well, as were the wines and desserts although I think desserts were less special -but that could have been because we were completely stuffed to the gills at that point. (lemon cheesecake was great!)
Overall a really impressive leisurely multi course dinner in an unexpected area of Sacramento.
Great food. Great service!!
Wade and April were great as usual. Excellent food and wine.
Wonderful, has yet to disappoint, one of the best in town
An all around lovely evening!
Ravenous is the epitome of a thoughtful menu, exceptional cuisine, intelligent service with a rhythm that gently lifts one up from their every day routine. ( Our latest joy: The potato-leek soup and Chilean Sea Bass.) The absolute kicker is that this lovely experience takes place in a neighborhood retail center, and all its sophistication is delivered in the most friendly, non-stuffy way. Nothing can take the place of giving your highest and best effort to delivering perfection. That's art. Wade and April: Don't change a thing! ~Your Elk Grove Fan Club
Love this place. Superb food, lovely owners. Top quality in every way.
There is a reason why it is rated the best food in Sacramento -- it is! Sophisticated palates won't be disappointed. Simple palates won't be overwhelmed. Ravenous is in a funky location and yet, once inside, you are transported into a fine dining experience. They way the chef combines ordinary flavors with a little pop of the unexpected, the results dazzle. If you order the chocolate mousse for dessert, you will have a very difficult time stopping at just one. (Recipe has been handed down through a couple of generations.)
This place features very well prepared food and excellent, attentive service combined with a friendly intimate atmosphere. Highly recommend it.
This cozy small bistro has a great ambience and the host and sever is the owner. The food and presentation is excellent and will have you coming back again. Hats off to his excellent chief,. Get your reservations in early as the owner takes only so many reservations per day and that is it. We had a great experience for our anniversary and in our neighborhood the pocket also.
Wonderful food Fabulous service.
Had not been here in quite awhile as it is a jaunt for me but well worth the trip. Menu well thought out something to please everyone. Small space was very well utilized. Service was great music in the background not overbearing. All our food appetizer, entrees and dessert were excellent. I will have to make a point to return despite the drive.
Wonderful food paired with attentive service! Would definitely go back
The food here is always fresh and tasty. Not fatty and over sauced ever. Fabulous combinations of veggie and flavors. Consistently good.
My boyfriend and I were seated by Julie who was an amazing host! She gave great recommendations from the wine menu. The food was the next best thing and the dessert was the cherry on top!
The food, wine, service and attention to detail are just amazing. Love everything I've ever eaten there. Never disappointed.
Fabulous food and amazing service. Wade was fun to talk with. So friendly.
My wife had the duck breast and I ordered the fillet. Both meals were amazing.
I would definitely recommend trying this place for an evening out with a special loved one.
We love the food at Ravenous. Next we love the welcome and service from April and Wade. We have never been disappointed by either. Ravenous has THE best cheesecake. The salmon and Chiliean sea bass were cooked perfectly presented beautifully. Also loved our escargot, mussels, and salads. Ravenous is a real hit with us.
outstanding food and service. Great brunch menu. I had one of the best crab cakes I have had in a while. Looking forward to going back soon.
It was a special birthday and Wade and April made it the best ever. Great food and perfect service! This is a favorite restaurant for us! The best!
A smallish intimate setting, with first class attention to food and service. We had heard this was a great neighborhood find and traveled out of our way to try it. It was worth it, and we'll look for excuses to drop in again. The halibut special, the duck, the mussels, etc all wonderful.
We have been to Ravenous probably 10 times in the last year always for lunch. It is in a nondescript strip mall however the experience is nowhere near nondescript. The food is far better than most "It" San Francisco which are overpriced and overlauded. The quality is superb , presentation beautiful without being frou frou, the individual flavors in a dish stand out separately without being overwhelming. The beet salad and cheesecake are my go to's and every entree I've tried has even delicious with wonderful visual and textural combinations. I should also mention that the owner is very affable, low key, paces things well and builds a nice personal banter with the customers. I only wish he would add the scallops to the lunch menu since they look delicious and I'd love to try them. You will not be disappointed.
Simply the best restaurant around! Never anything but the finest food.
Great place to take friends from out of town - yes, Sacramento has fabulous restaurants and
Ravenous is one of the best. Always great taste comes first, coupled with healthy, creative food.
The salmon risotto is terrific and the halibut is a good size portion seasoned perfectly. Top of the class - and staff who are professional and friendly.
