Fresh seasonal ingredients. excellent seasoning and perfectly cooked items. Outstanding service. None better in Sacramento.
This is my favorite restaurant in Sacramento. You can count on the quality and service. They also have excellent wine. Great desserts too. Very consistent. This is a great place for a long lunch or dinner. You do not want to rush this experience. Sophisticated.
still a GEM among venues anywhere Blessed it is in Sacramento
Can always bring guests here & get rave reviews
One of my favorite places to dine lunch or dinner. Farm to Fork wonderful!
Three of us had the halibut and it was perfectly cooked; the accompanying corn and tomato butter were tasty. The fourth person in our group had the "picnic special" and enjoyed that as well.
In Sacramento on business for a few days and discovered this gem. If we lived here, this would become our place. Engaging menu and all around special spot. The potato gratin is not to be missed. One of the best wine lists I've seen in quite awhile - including a nice selection of half bottles.
Everything was great except for the service that evening. Our server, Naomi was absent most of the time and rarely seen on the floor. Thankfully the manager delivered our meals and another server assist us with our bill.
We normally have exceptional service unfortunately on this particular evening we didn't have a memorable experience.
We will go back because we love the restaurant and its changing menu.
The food was delicious and service was good, it will definitely be on my list again!
Best meal out my husband and I have had in a long time. Food was superb and service was excellent!
two of us loved entire meals. two of us loved the salad and dessert but not impressed with the entree.
Elizabeth was an amazing server. We had a great time.
This was my second time coming here. The first experience was underwhelming. So it took a while to return. I'm glad I did as it was a lovely experience this time. It's not inexpensive but it's good. We had the cheese plate, Caesar salad, beer salad, Ahi tuna entree, and lamb and sausage entree. The cheese plate, Caesar, and lamb were the best dishes ordered. The beet salad was nice but had a slightly too sour dressing. So I didn't finish hat. The Ahi tuna pieces were very thick - a little difficult to cut and hence enjoy. The wine and beer options were very good. I'd have liked the Pinot noir to have been served in Pinot glasses. When these little things are the critiques, the place is good.
The food and service was excellent. The Chef came out and only greeted his regular customers. We would have loved to meet him and express our appreciation of the great flavors.
The food is excellent all the time. Use of fresh ingredients and creating wonderful flavors makes the Water Boy a top choice.
Waterboy is one of my favorite places. Menu & quality of food is always great. It was very loud making it very hard to have a business conversation.
Best restaurant in Sacramento...hands down.
It is always a pleasure dining at The Waterboy. The food, service were impeccable.
the food was good with the exception of my steak tartar. Instead of the usual and expected preparation it was served as three sliders. the "buns" of the sliders were the sort of pastry one might expect in a cream puff. The meat was not chopped finely enough and I had to ask for mustard since the preparation did not have any. I prefer grey pupon (spelling?) in it but the restaurant had only grainy French mustard. That was just OK. The fish was good and the caesar salad was good too. It was just the affectation with the steak tartar that turned me off.
Shared rabbit ravioli, skirt steak and profiteroles with a friend. An absolutely amazing lunch
enhanced by Marcella's always good cheer and advice and Rick actually delivering the
cappucino! Waterboy is my go-to place!
