Ravenous Cafe Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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.
Perfect choice for our Anniversary dinner. We enjoyed and appreciated all of the dishes. The flavors in each dish were unique, interesting and delicious. Atmosphere was cozy, yet with a touch of elegance and the owner provided just the right amount of individual attention. Are recommending to all our friends.
I try to go to Ravenous Cafe whenever I can. Wade is the consummate host, and the food is marvelous. This past visit I had alench special that was pan-seared scallops on a delicious base of risotto. Also there is an eclectic, well-chosen wine list at reasonable prices.
This is an unusual and delightful eating place. It combines a menu providing a variety of intriguing options that can be freshly prepared in a small, tasteful restaurant. The service is exceptional -- friendly and personal --, the food is wonderfully prepared and of the highest quality, the menu is creative within a traditional constraint. A delightful place for a special - or any - night out.
Ravenous restaurant is an absolute five star restaurant. Wayne the owner and April the hostess are absolutely superb.
Robert the chef is absolutely amazing.
The food is spectacular the wine list is great. The overall value is wonderful. It has a wonderful intimate setting.
Wade and April make you feel as if you are enjoying a private meal. The quality of the food and the service is absolutely outstanding.
We highly recommend this restaurant.
Great hidden gem in Greenhaven/Pocket area. There aren't many, if any, restaurants in the area like this one. Close to where we live so if we want good, fine dining food, this is the place to go. Even if you have to travel some distance, I think it is worth it. The owner, Wade, is very personable and the waitress is very pleasant.
My only regret is that we did not try this place a long time ago. Fabulous food and service, great for quiet conversation. If you want a vibrant bar or party scene this is not the place for you. This is a fabulous neighborhood restaurant with excellent food and service where you will be remembered by name every time you go. This is not a place to "get something to eat". This is where you go to "dine."
The only negative thing I could say is that the scenery out the window is nothing special. I would NOT expect a restaurant with this caliber of food in a strip mall. But there it is and practically walking distance from our home in Pocket. This is a higher end restaurant but you get what you pay for when it comes to quality of food and service.
I highly recommend to everyone who lives in the Pocket and nearby neighborhoods as a neighborhood gem. Also worth the drive for such fabulous food and service.
Planning to try brunch soon! I hear that is not to be missed.
A fantastic restaurant and a fantastic host in Wade. It is a real pleasure to eat in a restaurant that has its focus on the food and service. This is what all restaurants should be like. The service and attentiveness provided by Wade and April was excellent. We can't wait to go back.
