    Went to celebrate a colleagues promotion. We ordered a few different items and all shared plates. The jalapeño infused drink (I forget what it was called) was so delicious splurged for 2!

    I want to love revival so much but I’ve been here a few times since their rebranding and every time it takes 20+ minutes to get our drinks. Our food came out before our cocktails by 15 ish minutes (mind you, I ordered a vodka soda, not a complex drink). Our server was lovely and apologized for the wait but that there was only one bartender. I also tried to order a Chardonnay and they said they were completely out of Chardonnay and sauv blanc by the glass. I personally love the vibe much better than pre-COVID revival, and the food was great, but I might think twice before going there to grab quick drinks after work.

    Server lied and said they don’t have oysters and then said “by the time they’re cracked and ready it’ll be 30 min” when I asked about how long it would take to get the humus plate out I replied “you said you are out of oysters” And she said “oh that’s for the last order for the people that already ordered “ There was literally no one else out of the 3 people at the tables with oysters If your going to lie at least be a lil more clever on how you lie this place needs to be aware of what the servers are telling guests It’s shuck Monday’s are for shmucks No oysters mon oeil!!!!!!

    Everything was great other than the bone marrow, it was too dry and maybe a little over cooked. Not spreadable on the bread when it is supposed to be. Other than that, great service and all other food was great

    Really wanted to treat my mom and grandma to a nice restaurant that seeeemed fancy. What a mistake lol. Had a table of 6, got two waters and two menus no napkins even after we asked for some it took forever and we were probably the only table there. We got there at 4 when it opened and they were “low on food” mind you they give you five options but now it was narrowed down to one. We got our appetizers last and our entrees first. Our charcuterie board that was $30 was a damn lunchable. Awful experience will never spend my money or time here again would’ve rather went to iHop.

    Went there with my colleagues and boss for a get together and I loved the ambience, it was quiet enough for us to catch up and get conversation going. I like that we did not have blasting music overhead. I also liked the calming effect of it facing the pool and the Sacramento skyline. The food was good- I especially loved their ricotta cheese dip, cauliflower, ahi tuna and beetroot hummus! Definitely favorites of mine that I have had twice in a row now! I will be coming back for sure. It’s a great hang out spot.

    The ambiance is gorgeous and inviting! The food is tasty! However the menu had very few food items, it was quite limiting. And the server only came to our table when we waved him down because we needed refills or wanted the check. Service was slow, menu was lacking. But the food we did get tasted great and the interior was inviting and stylish.

    Expectations were much higher. Drinks were tasty. As a first time visitor, treating a newly engaged couple via an intimate double-date, it did not feel special, nor inviting. We were all let down due to the following: 1- For as swanky as the he dress code was described, it was not at all enforced (there were folks in sweatpants / athleisure wear). 2- Our dinner reservation was seated at a lounge within the bar. We all hunched over a lower coffee table to eat. 3- Cauliflower plate (x2) was delivered cold Chris was kind enough to recognize our party of 4 & brought an extra sourdough stick for each of us.

    We went early before a Mardi Gras party. The service was slow even when there were not too many there. It took us 10 minutes to get a beer from our waitress. The food was OK nothing special. The entertainment was fabulous and we will be back for that but will eat before we go.

    Scheduled a birthday dinner. Friends from out the country came to celebrate. The security officer wouldn’t let my friend in with his UK driver’s license. He said he needed his passport or a US Id (As if people walk around with their passports). Absolutely ruined my birthday dinner. They were so unapologetic as well and rude. Such a horrible way to treat people. Especially on one’s birthday.

    They were understaffed but we had good service. Bartender was amazing and the vibe was exactly what I wanted. Felt like an intimate cocktail party in our penthouse over looking the pool. We had the mac and cheese, meatballs, shrimp tacos, brussel sprouts, cheeseburger, chicken and ahi and it was all amazing

    We did the Thanksgiving buffet. The week leading up to the event, no one would return our emails and calls. I even walked into the Sawyer in person, and they had no clue. They took my number, no one called me back … the lights were very bright (as though they wanted us to leave). Decor was super sparse. The value was not there for the $75 price paid. Beer and mixed drinks had to be purchased separately. Valet wasn’t included. Food was delicious, but we won’t be doing that again.

    Great place to grab a drink and lounge around. Definitely pass on the food. We tried the duck carnitas tacos, meatballs, and papas bravas. Everything lacked flavor and they gave our tacos to the wrong table so we had to wait a while before a replacement came. The service was okay. Although the cocktails were great it took way too long to get drinks. It was quicker yo walk up yo the bar and order than placing orders from our server. Don’t think it was the servers fault but clearly there was a disconnect.
