We are located just a few blocks from the Capitol and Convention Center and just steps from the Golden 1 Center. This is the perfect place to dine pre-show or concert.

Midtown
About the restaurant
The historic building of the Star Lounge was a social gathering ground for almost one hundred years. Our Midtown Sacramento Lounge carries on the tradition of being a community incubator of creativity, an oasis of thought, and a great place to unwind. A place for all to come together and celebrate the arts, music, food, and a great cocktail. We use traditional local ingredients, authentically prepared, in a historic upscale inspired setting.

Andrew and Collin were outstanding. Any time we go someplace for dinner we feel we always get rolled; everything comes at the same time. That was certainly not the case at Star Lounge. It was a great evening and we definitely will be back soon. Thank you, Star Lounge Joel Hudspeth

Wonderful meal! Delicious food, excellent service and a very memorable evening to celebrate my husband and my daughter’s boyfriend’s combined birthday. Barket, was our friendly and efficient server. He got everything spot on! There were six of us and we ordered a lot of food. Everything was hot, delicious and we ate every bite. There was only a tiny bit of flatbread pizza leftover that we took home. The hit of the table was the potato skillet side. It was potatoes with cheese and bacon and chives and everyone loved it!! Special thanks for allowing us to be seated when two of our party was running late, which became very late. Thank you Barket for your patience and understanding while we waited for our daughter and her boyfriend. Thank you for allowing me to bring in a special dessert for their dietary needs and for keeping it cold and serving it to them. My husband and our daughter’s boyfriend both felt very special with the wonderful way you served their desserts to them. It was so sweet of you to ask their names and write it out on the plate in chocolate and sing happy birthday to both of them using their names. Barket went the extra mile for us and we greatly appreciate him and his friendly service and attention to detail. We will definitely be back and hopefully can get Barket as are server again. I highly recommend him and the fabulous food.

About the restaurant
Michelin Guide rated neighborhood restaurant with creative and shareable cuisine and a year-round patio.

"With a clear vision, a striking aesthetic and distinctive, mouthwatering flavors, Canon restaurant in East Sacramento is a stellar and welcome addition to the city’s dining scene." - 4-Stars, Sacramento Bee

"Find the convivial Canon sequestered away from the downtown bustle. This cool space that contrasts deep tones against bright whites is enveloped by the aromatic smell of smoke, so it’s no surprise that the house is packed most nights. Chef Brad Cecchi is the culinary mastermind and his menu is pivoted around playful small plates." - Michelin Guide

Canon is committed to a healthy and productive workplace. A 4% service fee is added to dine-in bills to help cover the cost of employee health and wellness benefits and to provide a kitchen equity stipend to our back-of-house staff.

Pleasantly surprised how much we enjoyed this first visit to Camon. The waiters were attentive and each course was plated so beautifully. The cornbread was so delicious with surprise onion inside —maybe my favorite. The peach salad was so interesting with great textures and colors including unique pickled walnuts. The beans were fresh and delicious as was platter branzino. Had lemon meringue for desert but was so stuffed ! On the way out , stopped to look at the garden and got to meet Chef Sean who was picking blueberries ! I loved the ambiance, service and food … I most Definitelu will be back !

Great location. Lots of hard surfaces, so it gets really loud and can be difficult to hear the folks at your table without them yelling. If you can, get seated in a booth and avoid being near large groups. Food is excellent.

About the restaurant
What is Goose Port? We have a lot of sports, 23 taps with classics and crafts, a full bar with creative mixed drinks, fun music and most importantly great fresh food (from American to Mexican & even Portuguese dishes). Bustling indoor dining with 10 TV's and a large shaded dog-friendly patio w/ no TV's means there are many types of Goose Port dining experiences waiting for you!
Goose Port Public House... Something for everybody!
