Taylor's Kitchen is a charming, neighborhood restaurant nestled in between Land Park and Curtis Park. Chef Casey Shideler's weekly changing menu benefits from her relationship with local farmers and ranchers. One of Sacramento's "best kept culinary secrets", Taylor's is perennially on at or near the top of Zagat's list in food quality. The wine list is always changing features wines hand selected by Master Sommelier candidate, Keith Fergel, formerly of The San Francisco's Fifth Floor and Yountville's The French Laundry.

We had never been here before. Great food and professional staff. Plates were artfully presented. Kitchen was slow the night we were there because their computer system was down.

I’ve been to Taylor’s occasionally over the years and have always enjoyed it. This was a special opportunity to introduce the place to good friends from out of town. The food was delicious – homemade pappardelle (tender with the right chew) with a kale pesto, a roasted squash arugula salad, salmon, berry creme brulee. each dish had different flavors and wonderful textures. Each seemed carefully prepared and presented. Our group of three had a number of food restrictions and preferences, and the server and kitchen handled them graciously. As always I enjoyed the vibe, which is both special and casual.

One critique of the menu: Over time, it’s evolved that an actual majority of dishes on the menu have bacon or pork. The kitchen is gracious about deleting ingredients and accommodating food needs, but this does seem somewhat imbalanced on a small menu. Nonetheless, I very much welcome my next visit.

One of the best restaurants in Sacramento. Farm to fork, great and reasonable wine list, impeccable service in a quiet neighborhood atmosphere. Their ingredients come from the butcher shop next door and are always fresh and amazing.

Taylor’s Kitchen has been a favorite for some time but our last visit was a disappointment. Both entrees we ordered were off. The chicken dish was dry and the suckling pig, while tasty, did not have the promised crispy skin. Attention in the preparation seemed a bit lacking that night.

We always enjoy dining at Taylors. The service is always excellent. They are going through a transition in the kitchen and I think it affected both the pacing of our meal and the plating. We will definitely return because they have always maintained a very high standard for both their service and their meals

I’ve eaten here before and always thought their food was outstanding however I was a bit disappointed in the salad and vegetarian “cakes” which seemed a bit dry. Good experience though because we ran into friends

Appreciated a vegetarian option. Would recommend having one sauce instead of two for that dish. My wife had the rissoto requested w/out bacon. Was ok but she thought it was a bit gummy.

We loved the tomato salad and will return just based on that dish.

Our friends LOVED the lamb. Said it was perfect.

We were here with our neighbors on Friday to celebrate my birthday and the food was outstanding. I had the gazpacho, which was just the perfect mix of fresh and tangy, follows by the lamb loin chop special. It was amazing. I love this place. Such a neighborhood gem.

We always have a wonderful meal at Taylor's Kitchen. The chef and staff are extremely talented. I had one of the best Chilean Sea Bass preparations ever, and I usually have this fish when I dine out. The homemade ice cream was wonderful - the best Butter Pecan ice cream I have ever had! My friend had the filet mignon, which was scrumptious.

We love Taylor's Kitchen. This time, we shared the fried oysters (3 or 4 each) appetizer and they were excellent: very fresh, the seasoning was just right, the sauces on the side were very nice. I also had the beet salad and it was very tasty and beautifully plated. We each ordered the veal chop special and it was perfection: tender, moist, flavorful; the blend of veggies accompanying were also perfectly prepared. I had the beet salad first course and it was very tasty and beautifully plated. A perfect meal. Thank you so much.

I forgot to leave a note to the restaurant informing them my friend was vegan. Our waitress and the chef didn’t bat an eye. They put together a delicious salad that we split and worked out an item on the menu, risotto, that we both ordered. It was delicious. After dinner coffee, also great. Wished I had inquired the brand they used.
