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.

Food and service are outstanding! The pea soup was delightful and asparagus perfectly cooked. The place is small but not extremely crowded so you feel cozy but not cramped. Our only complaint was the poor acoustics. Voices echoed so much that we couldn’t finish conversations.

We took advantage of the Mother’s Day brunch special in order to check out Taylors. We were impressed with the food quality and presentation! We felt welcome and look forward to another visit for dinner. The menu was inventive, a wide selection of beer and wine and an inviting ambience!

Perfect meals. Absolutely delicious. Not a crumb left on any of the four plates. The halibut was crunchy on the outside and perfectly cooked on the inside. The vegetables were small carrots and melt in the mouth baby artichokes. The pork chops were served with interesting sides with some picante flare. As always the bread was terrific. Our meals were are wonderful. The chef is masterful.

We've been to this great neighborhood restaurant and have never had a bad meal!! Split a wonderful goat cheese salad with my wife. She had the filet mignon, perfectly done and I had their delicious pork chop. Only improvement I might suggest is a more recognizable wine list.....particularly, by the glass. We usually bring our own bottle. Highly recommend!!

Myself and 3 others were disappointed in the atmosphere. Specifically we felt the vibe was "stuffy" and unfriendly. Every staff person, (three different people), who approached our table with water, bread, and apps never acknowledged us. Even our main waitress was unfriendly. None of them said "hello" or even smiled. My husband and I frequently eat at upscale restaurants and have never felt that we were not good enough. Taylor's can keep their rude and stuck up attitudes.

Only our second time dining here but always memorable. We had an outstanding meal with their Rack of Lamb special for the evening. The chef is currently doing a Moroccan theme with subtle Indian hints in a few dishes. The result is stellar. Can’t wait to go back...currently my favorite local restaurant.

My favorite "go to" neighborhood restaurant. The small plates are easy to share and the wine list (even by the glass) is fantastic. Love the small intimate size so it doesn't get noisy.

Outstanding meal! Four good friends dining together. We ordered steak, the pork chop, chicken and the popover. We each thought our meals were excellent. The pork chop was very moist and flavorful. We completed our meal with the tiramisu cheesecake, which was superb!

The desserts are always unique and artfully arranged.
It is hard to order just one of them.
The entire staff at Taylor’s is to be commended. All the work and dedication that goes into making this a dining experience is noted. We are frequent patrons.
Such a gem.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and experience and will definitely return for more meals. The ambience has a cozy neighborhood feel and the interior design is quite nice. The filet mignon and pork chop were yummy, with tender meat and excellent flavor. The sides were tasty, especially the potatoes au gratin. Wine selections by the glass were very good and we in fact went out the next day to find a bottle of the Chappellet red wine at the local wine shop. It is definitely a restaurant I am highly recommending to my friends and family.

They were ready for us as we arrived and showed us to our table. Very clean comfortable environment. Our Server was friendly, cordial and with good sense of humor. Loved the food. Our reservation was at 5:30 PM so getting there with the TRAFFIC was a bit of an issue.
We will go there again.

I originally learned about Taylor's kitchen through an article about the their sommelier in a Sacramento area food magazine, and the reviews I read were quite glowing.

Wine: The wine selections provided by our waiter were quite good.
Service: The service was good. Prompt but not intrusive.
Ambiance: The look and feel of the dining room is quite nice although we had a table closer to the entrance and there was a noticeable draft when the door opened and closed.
Food: The main reason for my poor review is that our entrees (ducks and filet mignon) were poorly prepared. The duck was a poor, fatty cut and way too tough. I felt like it had been sitting way to long before being delivered to us. The filet mignon was similarly poorly prepared. I ordered medium rare and by the time it was delivered it had lost its tenderness and flavor. I expected much higher quality for the price we paid.
Dessert: The desserts were good, especially the cake.

Great food, service, ambiance. Only downside was that it was a bit too cold. Others felt the same way. But place is attractive and the pork chop and lamb dishes superb. Our appetizer, a cheese on a bed of mushrooms and greens, was also delicious.

This is the third time I've had dinner here and each time the food is great, different and exciting. Service is great, very helpful. I had the lamb entrée and it was excellent. Dessert is always a treat also. this time was the vanilla donuts with orange glaze, served with grapefruit sorbet and grapefruit sections. It was very refreshing.
Atmosphere is casual elegance. Wine selection is good, not a large wine list but good quality wines. I would recommend Taylor's kitchen for a date night dinner or small group celebration.
