                                            We went to Sheldon Inn for our wedding anniversary. They made it so speacial for us! Our menu's were personalized with our names and even the specific year (21st) of our special day. They also took a picture and sent it home with us as a memory of our special night. They were able to work with us to order slightly off menu; the food was fabulous. My husband had the filet with a side of lobster tail; I had the ribeye. Both were delicious. For dessert it was creme brulee. Also a "I'll get it again." Thanks for a great night out. It was wonderful.

                                            Excellent celebration (Farewell) to a friend returning to Kenya. Food was up to usual excellent standards. Service over the top. Only issue was our booth was too small - seating felt cramped and tight across my belly.

                                            The evening was perfect. We arrived early and had perfectly made cocktails. Then the hostess got us and seated us in a booth where the menus were on the table with the heading congratulating us on our anniversary. the busser was friendly and polite bringing us bread and butter and looking after us throughout the meal. Our server was also friendly and polite and knew the menu extensively and made excellent suggestions including wine choices. A photographer came by and took our picture and then returned with the print. The food was delicious. What a perfect evening!

                                            It was an amazing dinner with my wife for our 31st anniversary. I do have to admit I made an error in my reservation to Sheldon Inn as I informed them it was my 32nd Anniversary. They had the menus prepared with our names and our special date and took our picture and gave us a nice print. We both enjoyed the night. Filet & Lobster for me and the wife and the special which was an amazing NY steak. The asparagus and green beans were local and fresh and cooked to perfection. Dessert was a perfect close to the dinner!

                                            Service was excellent. The gem salad with blue cheese dressing was so good. I also got the ribeye that was excellent. They make a really good lemon drop martini.

                                            Great high quality delicious food with great presentation. Service was quick and extremely pleasant well mannered servers. Every 3 months we have a date night choosing a high end restaurant. Normally have to travel into Sacramento or surrounding Cities. It’s nice to have a place in our own backyard avoiding heavy traffic and long commute after a meal feeling tired.

                                            They stuck us in a half booth next to the kitchen practically sharing with another couple even though I told them it was my husband’s birthday. He spent the evening facing the other couple and watching the kitchen door swing in and out. We could hardly have a conversation without hearing the other couples. The wedge salad had way too much dressing. The calamari and steaks were delicious. They asked if we wanted dessert we said no so they brought out a plate with a lit birthday candle stuck to it. Awkward. Our first time there not sure we will go back. For those prices I expected something a little more special.

                                            I dine here frequently and every review I’ve written has been glowing because my experiences here are always top-notch. However my most recent dining experience left a little to be desired. We had a new server that we have never had before dining there. The service was incredibly slow even on little things like bringing out the drinks. We ended up leaving and not ordering dessert because it has been such a long night. There must be new staff at the host stand…they aren’t as friendly as the prior ones. Hoping this was just one off night and it won’t deter me from dining there again.

                                            Service was par excellence. Servers very attentive and frequently checked on us. Food was served hot. Food was good and delicious. Extra touch for our anniversary is a printed menu with a personalized "Happy Anniversary." The manager made a follow up phone call. Overall a great experience. Made our anniversary extra special.

                                            What a hidden gem! I had no expectations, but oh was I impressed. The staff is amazing - smiling, courteous, and attentive, and professional without pretension. The cocktails, appetizers, entrees and dessert was all top notch. Meals were prepared expertly and perfectly seasoned and flavorful. Presentation was also on point. We live 15 minutes away from the restaurant and look forward to becoming “regulars”. Our experience was excellent!

                                            There are not enough words to describe how wonderful the experience was at the Sheldon Inn last night. It was my sister‘s 36th wedding anniversary and staff spared no expense making their experience special. If you haven’t been to the Sheldon Inn, go . Great food, wonderful atmosphere and well priced.

                                            We had a birthday celebration with friends and had informed the restaurant. The restaurant has a practice of putting a celebration announcement on the menus provided to the party involved, which is special!

                                            Our evening at Sheldon Inn was excellent. Our waiter and wait staff were courteous, pleasant, knowledgeable and timely with service requirements. Food was delicious! And, I was very pleased with the lamb chops. I rarely order this item as it is a gamble - meaning the flavors leave a lot of room for improvement. This order was delicious! I sent my compliments to the Chef. I'm very happy I scheduled my wife's birthday dinner at Sheldon Inn.

                                            This was a birthday dinner for my 33yo daughter. They made it very special with a personalized menu, a group photo and sweet lit candle at dessert time. We ordered the calamari and mushroom cigars as appetizers- yum! We had prime rib and fillet mignon both were delicious! We couldn’t resist the dessert tray and shared a crème brûlée and a scrumptious chocolate dish. Prices a high but well worth it. It was an all around excellent evening!

                                            We are so lucky to have Sheldon Inn! Now the weather is allowing us to eat outside and the atmosphere is even better. They do little things most restaurants don’t. This particular visit was in celebration of my cousin’s birthday and his menu was personalized ❤️ It’s a nice ride out to the restaurant so take the time to visit. Reservation is a good idea.
