    Our server was the best. Loved having name on table. Eating here is so convenient with the theater across the street. Suggestions for menu: Tuna melt and the ‘adult’ grilled cheese. Valet parking is so convenient.

    Great breakfast this morning! Service was spot on. Our waitress, Shobna, and her assistant, John, were very attentive to our needs and desires. Food was good. Quality ingredients and well executed.

    My niece and I drove up to Sacramento from Modesto to attend the play Wicked. After reading positive reviews, we decided to eat at Vines Bistro for Easter brunch. It did not disappoint. We were greeted warmly and seated promptly. Our waitress was festive and fun and wore a bunny costume, which made us laugh. We, also, were assisted by two other wait staff and they were gracious as well. Our meal was delicious and plentiful. The restaurant is inside the Hyatt Regency and a very short walk to the rose gardens and across the street from the performing arts center. I would eat there the next time I visit Sacramento.

    Our Waitress was a Doll. Pleasant snd and efficient. She took our order for lunch salads. It took exactly one hour to be served. We were going to a play so time was important. When we finally asked her how much longer she checked on it and soon we were served. The dining room was not full so there was little reason it should have taken so long to get served. She was very shocked we had not received our lunch, so I feel it was a problem with the cooks. The menu on line indicates you have a bread basket with salads also, we were not given any bread. One of the salads was missing the avocados and we had to request them. All together, it was not great. Doubt I will come back.

    We loved our meal here, service was outstanding and quick. Water glasses never empty. Hazlenut cake for dessert was the stand out but all the food was good. Drinks were good, decent Bloody Mary and strong coffee. $100 for 4 people including drinks and dessert seemed reasonable for a nice hotel restaurant. Valet parking $5. We kept our car at the hotel and walked to Golden1 stadium. Great location downtown near the Capitol.

    The Setting is really nice. We sat outside on the patio. It was a little loud due to music from nearby June 19th celebration. Our waitress Natalie was very friendly and helpful making sure we were well taken care of. I had ordered a waffle which was a little dry.

    The description should definitely say that it is in the lobby of the Hyatt Hotel in DT Sacramento. They only show one picture and it’s of the outside patio which is literally next to the driveway. The only saving grace was that our Server was fantastic and the Manager made sure we could order Vegan.
